I recently listened to the audiobook Abundance. They key takeaway from this book is that things are not as bad as they seem.
Lately I have been following others in believing that something bad is going to happen in the near future having to do with the government doing something negative or society taking a hit or collapsing. The book helped me to realize that we have built in biases that lead us to believe something bad is going to happen. These biased are hardwired into us to help protect us from a dinosaur hiding in the bushes.
What the book explained is that we are on the cusp of making huge leaps in every conceivable aspect of our lives and the world we live in as long as we don’t blow our selves up. So maybe we should focus on finding ways to keep from blowing ourselves up.
