What if I were to tell you the zombie apocalypse was here? What would you do? Do you have a plan? Do you have a fallout bag? I'm willing to bet you do. Across all generations, we are united in the idea of an impending apocalypse. What is it that we find so appealing about the end of the world? It all boils down to these three reasons:
1. No more corporate America. If you work in the corporate sector, you know it's like being in the mob. It's nearly impossible to get out. This rat race is designed to keep you so busy and focused on a single task that you don't have the time or energy to think about anything else. It's a black hole where you lose your individuality, creativity and purpose. You are not special, you don't have a name, you don't have a face. You are only a number, you are just another battery keeping the system running. And once you're used up, you're tossed out. There are more and more of us now, however, that crave something different, know we were meant for more. But it's taking that leap that frightens and paralyzes us, so we stay. But then the apocalypse happens and we are finally set free!
2. No more currency. No more credit. No more debt. Can you hear the collective sigh of relief? As they say, money is the root of all evil. We are slaves to money and are possessed by our possessions. We are trapped in our nine-to-five jobs because we need to make as much money as we can so we can spend it all on a bunch of crap we don't need. Credit is a scheme to keep the sheep in line. Once in debt, we are truly slaves to our jobs because now we have to work twice as hard and make twice as much to climb out of this hole we've put ourselves in. We've spun way too far out of control and it will take an apocalypse to break us free.
3. Going back to the basics. It's time for a different kind of stress. Let's give our brains a break, no more overthinking about making rent or paying bills. No more anxiety about someone not working their share but getting more than you. The zombies are here and now's your chance to shine. If you want to eat, you need to earn your keep, and only those with something to contribute to the team will survive. It's about hunting and gathering and running and fighting. Talk about forcing us into a healthy life style!
So the apocalypse makes us feel alive and free, healthier and less stressed? Why wait for the apocalypse? Unplug yourself from the matrix and start living your purpose now! Live in the present as if each day is precious and tomorrow is not guaranteed. Today is the day to make a change and live a truly free life.
