“The most important decision we make is whether we believe we live in a friendly or hostile universe.” – Albert Einstein
What’s interesting about Einstein’s question, is that both answers are true.
We can choose a hostile universe.
Or we can choose a friendly one.
And our decision will echo through our lives, perpetuating itself over and over without the conscious even being aware of it.
In the hostile universe, we take the scarcity mindset. Where everything, is a threat. If someone is winning, I’m losing. For there’s only so much success to be had… it’s a fixed amount. From the moment we wake up in our bed, we’re on the defense. Instead of focusing on the reasons why we’ll succeed, we’re instead dwell on all the reasons we won’t.
In the friendly universe, we take the abundance mindset. If someone is winning, they are an inspiration. If they can do it, so can I. And there’s plenty of winning to go around. Instead of fighting for a bigger slice of the pie, let’s just get an even bigger pie.
We choose the lens we place over our eyes.
Change our perception, and we change our world.
