I have felt myself change. I have noticed myself change. I am by no means perfect and am still very much human; mistakes have been made and lessons have been learned.
However, a mindset paradigm shift has happened. I look to the future with intense optimism and an overwhelming desire to become the best version of myself in that future. When you think more of the future, you strengthen your need for patience.
Developing patience makes you calm. Remaining calm makes you a leader in the chaos. Growing into a leader makes people look up to you. Having people look up to you makes you want to make better decisions and eliminate mistakes. Eliminating mistakes grows your wealth.
Wealth doesn’t just mean money. Wealth translates to — the availability of your time to live in the present moment with the people you love.
The wider availability of wealth in a community creates a more loving community, a happier community, a community willing to build towards a common narrative even if they don’t live to see the day of its completion.
This is the world I want to live in. This is a world I would save my money for. This is a world I would save my energy for — and be cognizant of how I treat the people around me and through the glaring blue light in front of me.
Becoming a better person is a never-ending pursuit. Yet, in my humble opinion, Bitcoin can build the vessel to begin our long journey. Bitcoin can be the vessel to teach us, our kids, grandkids, friends, family, global society to join in common hearts that our future is beautiful, abundant, and at the end of it all, those that have past into the after-life await for us.
We must become better people in order to be worthy to meet them again or we shall sink into a fate of worry, anxiety, short-term pleasure-seeking, debt-burdened, and unfilled creatures; a life of no purpose.
The bedrock of a community joining in a common purpose is communication; we are storytellers us homo sapiens. We must communicate as good people and we must exchange value with honest, verifiable, global, decentralized, sound money.
Tear down the delicate structure built by high-time preference carpenters. Build this new, time-honored foundation, together, we must.
Head in the clouds, feet in the here and now, arm in arm, we march forward to this bright future together.
