It's time for social change (Why the past doesn’t predict the future)

black panther change marvel personal development society Jun 20, 2020

Warning: Just a heads up that this is a heavy one...

As if 2020 wasn’t crazy enough already with the complete incineration of Australia, almost starting world war 3, the death of Kobe, the impeachment trial of Donald Trump, the coronavirus pandemic, the crazy economic impacts of the quarantine, and a bunch of other stuff that I’m probably missing...

Lately we’ve witnessed tremendous civil unrest and racial tensions in the US, due to the OTHER pandemic of racism and the ongoing mistreatment of black Americans. 

As Will Smith said, “Racism is not getting worse. It’s getting filmed,” which is bringing the disgusting murder of innocent black people across the country to light. 

Folks like George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery… and the list goes on and on...

As I've reflected on what's going on in the country, like many people, I've been searching for answers. That’s why it’s taken me so long to share this with you...

You know this is wrong. You can probably feel that it's about time for social change (I feel it too), but how do we even start? 

It seems like such a massive transformation of our society. There is so much momentum in the wrong direction.

Are we doomed to continue like this forever? 

If you’re searching for answers and wondering if your past has to predict your future, then today’s video is for you.

In it, I share a beautiful allegory for our situation that proves why the past doesn't predict the future... unless you let it. I also share the 5 steps required to move through change.

 

Now it’s your turn: 

Leave a comment sharing the positive effects you’ve already seen from this crisis, so we can thrive as a community together (more on this soon).

 

Until next time,
