Descartes was the one to say: "I think therefore I am"
The beliefs we hold shape the way in which we see the world and ultimately ourselves.
If we look out into the world and see only pain, struggle, and discomfort; you are right.
If you look out into the world and see joy, opportunity, and prosperity; you are also right.
When we pull back the curtain, only fundamental truths remain.
The world is nor good nor evil.
You control the narrative, and that narrative gets projected onto the world.
Both liberating and shackling to some.
Truly pulling back the real curtain on reality, the only fundamental truth remains; the language of math.
Math is the stage on which everything plays their role.
Tieing it back to you, learn to put numbers on things.
What probability does this option have vs this option?
What is the benefit of this path vs this path?
What can I invest in today for a better tomorrow?
What has more value, buying this book, or buying this pair of shoes?
Success in life can be boiled down to a series of decisions with better probabilities for success.
Although, there is no direct measurement.
You can hone your own truth calculator to find the best decision in any circumstance.
The big picture of life unfolds on the same stage for us all.
