What If?

What if we feared being mediocre as much as we fear the wrong politicians getting elected into office?

What if we feared living second rate lives as much as we fear big government?

What if we take it as an insult rather than an intelligent statement when people tell us that voting is our best opportunity to change the world?

What if we saw ourselves as being more powerful than the politicians we hate and love? What if we developed a vocabulary for personal power that extended beyond political lobbying and activism? What if we actually acted as if we had power? What if we stopped placing our faith external authority figures who claim to know what’s best for us?

What if these things are easier than we think?
