How often do we hear people say “It’s a small world” I don’t know how many times I’ve heard people say it and I have even been hearing myself say it a lot lately.
It’s a small world often reflects a series of events that are so unlikely that the only explanation is that the world is such a small place that the odds of that particular event happening have been increased by the size of the planet we live on.
One of the times I felt the world was getting smaller and smaller was the time I was in Chicago walking back to my hostel at 5:30 in the morning and I ran into a friend from way back in the days I played domestic basketball, we live about 10 minutes away from each other back at home but I hadn’t seen him in years and we just happened to cross paths in the back streets of Chicago at 5:30am. What are the chances? It’s a small world right?
You can make your world smaller.
The more you travel, the more people you meet the world starts to become a smaller and more accessible place. Compare these perception, a person who has never left their small country town compared to someone who has travelled the world. The world seems like a much more accessible place to the person who had already been around it once, compared to the person who has never left their small country town. The unknown of exactly what is out there make the world look like a big on scary place.
The quickest way to have greater access to everything you need is to make your world smaller.
1. Network With As Many People As Possible
3. Take advantages of new opportunities
4. Get out of your comfort zone
5. Get out of your house
A smaller map is much easier to navigate than a large one. The smaller you can make your world the more beneficial for you and achieving what you want to achieve.
