Unfortunately, nowadays people aim to be high end apes who care nothing more than their own survival and well being in this world. I call these people "high end ape dreamers". Survival and mediocrity satisfy their primal needs as a life form, just like survival satisfied the needs of our ancestors-apes.
The typical American dream to be a millionaire, to have a well paid job, 2 kids, summerhouse, a Ferrari in the garage is a high end ape's dream. This dream is about one's survival and is too primitive for the 21st century.
Wealth is not a measure of success. Wealth is only a measure of how well you survive.
Success is about how much you care and impact the world around you.
You can be the financially richest person and still be the least successful.
You can be the financially poorest person on the planet and still be the most successful.
It's upto you. Dream like an ape or dream like a conscious and capable human.
I'm a thinker, dreamer, doer and a strong follower of stoicism. I have a passion to learn and apply that to make the world a better place.
