A child's favorite question to everything is "Why?" This one word reply can get so annoying after a while. But it's the one question that has never produced an answer.
No matter how many times you answer the question "Why?" there will never be a definitive answer. It could go on forever.
So why don't we ask ourselves this question more?
Think about where you are at in life right now. You are at the point you are in because of the decisions you've made in your life. Or maybe it's from the way you were raised. Or maybe it's because things have happened to you that have been out of your control.
And we always love to ask the world "Why?" Why am I in the position I'm in right now? Why can't I be where I expected myself to be at this point?
It's not wrong to ask yourself these questions. Actually, it's beneficial for you to do so. Because if you aren't reflecting on how you got to where you're at, then what are you doing?
You're most likely self-sabotaging. You're telling yourself that you can't get to the next step in your journey because you're scared, you don't believe in yourself, or you are walking around with the wrong mindset. So how can this one word question help you get to where you want to be?
Even if you've got someone in your life who is challenging you everyday to be better, your future still depends on your decisions. The best way to move forward is to ask yourself "Why?" Why do you want to move forward? What is your motivation? What is your goal? Why is it important to you?
So right now, think about a goal you want to reach. Whether its a new job, a new relationship, or just something new, write it down. Then write down the question "Why?" right underneath your goal.
You'll find that its not hard to think of reasons why you want to be better. But once you can understand what and who you're doing it for, it will make your path to your goals a little bit clearer.
Ask yourself this question everyday, and you'll remind yourself of what's important.
Ok, let's get deeper now. Why are we here? How are we here? This video above talks about a black hole possibly sucking us up one day. *Pause*
If Earth were to get swallowed up by some dark matter, then we'd probably die instantly. In which case, there's nothing to be afraid of because it would happen so quickly we wouldn't even know what would happen.
Maybe it would actually be better. Maybe it would send us into another universe where everyone gets along, theres not so much pollution, and Bill Nye is president of the world.
There's a company right now that is selling rubber bracelets, and using the profits to hire people to clean up the ocean. And while thats all well and great, it would literally take the entire population of the Earth to actually make a difference.
Do you recycle? Why not? You could definitely make a difference by reducing your carbon footprint. Who cares if recycling doesn't get you much money for the work you put in, you could make a real difference by helping out.
And by helping out, we mean just like don't litter and don't be dumb. That's it.
