What if you had the choice of two futures!
Lets look at fictional John’s choices:
In one future John’s prospects were bleak, he had a hum drum office job which seemed to be going nowhere, his dreams of business success were slim.
In the other future he would be a very successful businessman making loads of money and he was guaranteed to be happy!
The first future would be in the REAL world, the second would be in a virtual-reality environment.
Once in the virtual-reality machine you think you are in the real world but it is just that in this future you are a complete winner and everything goes right! Life is great!
BUT, John holds back from entering the machine.
He thought life in the virtual-reality world would be bogus and unreal!
But why should an AUTHENTIC REAL life, with its ups and downs, be preferable to a bogus happy one?
In the REAL world you would become someone on MERIT and LUCK, where in the VR machine you are a winner automatically!
Maybe you would be better off in the VR machine because in the REAL world success depends so much on LUCK.
Were you born in the right place and at the right time?
Were you blessed with the abilities to get your success?
Do you know the right people that could help you get ahead?
So, it probably would be better NOT to be at the mercy of Lady Luck, when you could choose to be successful and happy automatically in the VR machine. RIGHT?
When you think about it, we would rather determine our own futures by our WILL and EFFORTS.
So, in the long run, when we consider what’s in our best interests, we care for more than instant success and happiness.
We want to create our own journey!
Goodbye to the VR machine!
Bring on the HARD WORK!
