Action

Vision is the ability to see the future with imagination and wisdom, it is a mental image we create for our self.

A vision is born from our collective thoughts and everything around us is a manifestation of our collective thoughts. A clear vision helps us remain focused on our journey and helps us choose the most sustainable path how does this vision operate?

Take up one idea.

Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea.

Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone.

A thought is The Source of Everything that is!

Thoughts from our Head become words in our Mouth, these words translate into actions through our Hands.

Repeated actions become habits, these habits build our character through which our Personality is defined.

We are all masters of our destiny, We just don’t accept the reality that we are exactly where our thoughts directed us. We must act responsible and our character will decide our destiny.

Understanding Sustainable Development Goals!

Change.

Let’s do it.

It’s time, get up. The alarm has been ringing, its not the sound. It’s the heat and sweat that should wake us up. Look at the temperatures around you. Have you noticed anything change from your childhood to now?? If the answer is YES. Then its high time for us to act. We have no time to be lazy. (Don’t listen to Donald Trump)

Okay, I decided that I am ready to take action , now I asked myself what can I do? Below are few action items I could gather. (I am open for better suggestions)

  • Educate yourself – Surf internet about this sudden change in temperature, the cause and effects of what we do each day. Might be the carry bags we use or the water we waste or the unregulated electricity we waste. Understand how our actions brought us here .
  • Start the conversation – Make this a topic of conversation during your tea breaks, gossip times and maybe your dinner table talks etc. Discuss with your friends and family about what Global Warming is and what id our role in it.
  • Tell your kids – Tell them what lies ahead for them if they follow us and do what we did, teach them something different or let them teach us. Do not let them repeat the same mistakes we did and are doing.
  • Use public transport – When you can and if you can, prefer public transport.
  • Plant a tree – Let us plant a tree in the name of each family member and be responsible for it, lets do it for our birthday.
