Helen Keller wrote 12 books.
She was blind, deaf, and had limited ability to speak.
Keep in mind, this was before the Internet.
This was before computers.
This was before any kind of advanced technology.
Wherever You Are: Do More.
Wildly enough, only mentioning Helen Keller’s 12 books kind of undermines her contribution. She was also a lecturer, a political activist, and much more.
Right now, there is someone, somewhere is doing more than you with a lot less. There are tons of people hustling their asses off with very little resources.
No, this is not a comparison.
This is a Reality Check
This is a call to action.
What is your excuse?
Most of us haven’t earned the right to complain.
We haven’t done enough.
If you’re reading this, on a computer (that you own) or on a smartphone (that you own), you have advantages. No need to be ashamed of those advantages. But use those advantages to your advantage.
Many of Us Use Our Advantages to Our Detriment
Right now, a lot of our computers could be reduced to being called Social Media Machines or Netflix Viewing Screens.
Our phones could be called Selfie Makers.
Be more creative.
Use your brain.
Value your energy.
Many of us don’t have it as bad as we think we do.
Yet, we think we do, because many of us don’t want it as bad as we think we do.
