To question is to care.
But if you establish a heart that is inquisitive, you also must be prepared for answers to begin to come your way.
Unfortunately, there’s a climate in our society that views doubt and cynicism as a sign of intelligence, and produces questions, assuming that there are no answers or all answers have been provided.
Are you really looking for answers, or do you just want to continue to form what you view as intelligent questions?
I’m not so certain we can continue to prosper as a society if we believe that maturity equals pessimism. So how can you find answers?
1. Don’t listen to statistics.
I know that will be hard. News organizations are based on them.
But don’t ever forget what the purpose is for offering statistics: it is a way of telling you that you don’t need to seek further for information, because “here is the data, and it’s already pre-determined.”
I don’t care what percentage of the American people are for or against anything. I want to know the history of the situation, the humanity involved and the hope for betterment. Once I understand the history, the humanity and the hope, I can let you know my heart.
Don’t listen to statistics. They are trumped-up numbers passed along as facts by people who have an agenda.
2. Hang with people who believe.
I’m not just talking about religion. I’m talking about folks who still believe in other human beings, who believe in possibilities, who still want to multiply their talents, and who still think that every new sunrise provides an additional opportunity.
3. Look for daily progress.
Yes, as soon as you can, get off of the five-year goal plan, the one-year lease, the monthly budget and the weekly planning session.
Life happens in 24-hour periods, and if you don’t believe that’s true, understand that somewhere within that 24 hours, we actually lay down and pretend we’re dead.
So is life a 75-year journey? Or is it basically pursued about 75 seconds at a time?
If you look for daily progress, you will begin to notice the movement of the caterpillar instead of only being impressed with the soaring of the eagle.
It will make you a more powerful person.
So in a world filled with questions:
- Stand out from the crowd by looking for answers.
- Ignore the statistics provided
- Get yourself around people who believe in something
- And put yourself on a daily regimen of interaction with the world around you.
