A few words from Dan Millman:
Most of us have heard the chatter about the 1% and the 99%, referring to the 1% as “the wealthy elite or super-rich — bankers, hedge fund managers, and so forth — and the 99% as the “rest of us.” So I offer following reminders:
We in the developed world forget how wealthy we are: From a global perspective, anyone who earns more than $34,000 a year is part of the 1%. Even if you’re currently unemployed — even if you’ve experienced economic setbacks or hardship — you’re probably not scrabbling in barren soil, trying to grow a few crops, or searching for drinkable water, or searching for a few bites of food for yourself or your family. You’re not likely among that half of the world’s population making less than $1.25 a day. You probably have shelter, clothing, and enough to eat. Even if you’re going through a rough patch, you have reason to hope for, and work, for a better life and improved conditions.
Especially true for us in Austria. So do not waste your time complaining but use it to change your environment for the better…. just some thoughts…
