We all life in our own bubble.
It doesn’t matter who you are or what you are doing, you live in a bubble. Every information that reaches you, everything you do, every thought you have, it is all a part of a small system. Your system.
Twitter, Instagram and Co., they are filtering the information you receive. But that is of course no surprise to you. You have already realized the costumized advertising on your screens. But your life in general is exactly the same, because you are acting as a filter as well.
What ever it is you have dedicated your life to, you will hear more about the things you already set your focus on. Why do you think there are so many people in Germany voting for right parties these days? Not because they are evil in mind, or racism, or what ever. They just life in their own bubble and get the same information over and over again, until finally, they share the same opinion as the information that gets filtered for them. For them, life in Germany is not that good anymore. They are afraid, poor and do not see the chances they have. That is the reason why they vote for political parties like that.
Funny fact, for me as an open minded German with friends all over the world, I know how good the life in Germany really is. I don’t need to be afraid about getting harmed, or robbed, or not being able to get something to eat. I will be treated fairly and there are laws everybody respects. I can trust the officials and do not get discriminated.
So, if you tend to live in the wrong bubble, it is time for you to change! Get your stuff, we are moving. And it all starts in your mind. From the moment you wake up until the last active thought you have before falling asleep. This is the time you have, to change your mind. Change your mindset and move on. Be curious, ask questions. Dive into new topics. The diversity of life is awesome, but if you do not use your chances and stick to your bubble, life can be miserable at some point.
You can not live outside a bubble, that is not possible, but you can have a huge one! I personally focus all my energy I have on the things I am passionated about. This means racing, cars, engineering, entrepreneurship and life improving. But if there is something I do not care about, I don’t invest time for that. Well, this could be a good thing. But it can also be a bad thing. Let’s take politics for an example. I just do not care and don’t give a shit. What’s the result? I do not know who is in charge and what they are doing. I do not read, watch or listen to news and all that stuff. Yeah, I can save a lot of time, but my bubble starts to get even more narrow. I do not see the bad things anymore, I just focus on myself.
What is right and what is wrong? Who knows that!? It is just the realization process that is important. Be aware of what you are doing and with what you are spending your time.
Often times I hear people complaining about things like they have no money, work sucks and they are really not happy. Well, it is no wonder! They focus all the time on that. This is the law of attraction! You send that information out into the universe like a wish, and well, you always get what you want.
Oh, doesn’t the song goes like “you can’t always get what you want?” This makes me think about Hank Moody from Californication 🙂
See you next time!
