People today are soft.
They are soft mentally and physically.
And this softness is infecting our culture like a creeping mold.
Prosperity brings comfort and softness. And if you look at many failed civilizations throughout history, it's the property that killed them.
We need strong people, strong mentally, especially.
We need iconoclastic thinkers willing to challenge the status quo and ready to be "canceled" to stand up for what they believe in.
If we sterilize culture, we destroy culture. There will be nothing left.
Every attempt in history to make outcomes equal for all has failed, and millions have paid the ultimate price for these failed experiments.
As our living situation has been in disarray these past couple of weeks, I've been thinking about how most modern problems are just tests of resilience.
If you embrace these tests, you will grow as you overcoming them.
If you sidestep them, complain about them, or otherwise avoid them, you will end up weaker than before because now you've solidified the habit of avoidance, AND you missed out on the opportunity to sharpen yourself.
A blade of grass does not sharpen the iron sword. Iron sharpens iron. Hardness begets hardness.
Antifragility is getting BETTER from stress.
Remind yourself of this with every challenge or inconvenience you face. Embrace it as resilience training
