UN: Zero Poverty Goal 2030!!!

The Time to Unite Is Now!

Let’s show the World that We Care!

Put aside Our Differences and Focus on the Goal!

Eliminate Global Poverty for the First Time in History!


Many cite their personal perspective of a dog eat dog world, and point to setbacks in Life and in the News as evidence to support such.  Very often we have also heard “we cannot do anything about it” as a reason to resign ourselves and deny aid to fellow human beings in desperate need.

When faced with difficulty, some become angry and nasty etc especially if they perceived that the world is unfair and selfish.  Moderate tried and tested solutions are abandoned without proper implementation, and some even become gun-toting lone wolves. Reasons are given to be extremists, hurting others, causing a vicious cycle and self fulfilling prophecy, disrupting precious progress.

Reasonable Positivity and the Big Picture

Thought that the United Nations Development Programme video citing progress and new Sustainable Development goals is useful to eradicate false perceptions, and to lend the big picture and true perspective.  Overall, great effort has been made to help the poor all over the world, and progress is at a rate never seen before in human history!

In summary, extreme poverty has been reduced by half (from 2 billion people) since 1990 (amongst other achievements) and the new target set Sep 2015 is to eliminate Global Poverty by 2030.  A First in the History of Man.

While there is no such thing as completely smooth ride, people need to be reasonably positive to contribute to solutions.  Unreasonable negativity mis-directs people, propagates a cycle of fear and misery, eats up precious resources and impedes good progress.

Never have we lived in an era with more opportunity to do such great things.

It makes a difference to know we all stand for Peace.

Be part of the historic quest to Zero Poverty,
Sustainable Development and Hope for Mankind!

The Paradox of Choice

Is more choice necessarily better?  More freedom?  More diverse views?

When does choice become too much of clutter?  Even a danger to trip over?

How do you deal with the confusion of too much choices?

Dr Barry Shwartz, a Psychologist, Professor and Author, has this very interesting TED video titled “The Paradox of Choice”, which garnered 10 million views (on TED website and Youtube combined).

Thinking that the video will be intriguing preview for some of my upcoming posts on “Choice and Latitude”.  It is related to the coming Misconception 6 of “The How To’s of Daily Gratitude”, and other topics such as Empathy/Individuality, Depression and has even has ramifications on Love and Marriage (partly why people are not ready for marriage aka longer bucket lists due to more lifestyle choice).

Hope you find the video enjoyable!

Thank you for reading, watching and/or sharing.

The Journey of Love

Some quotes for The Journey of Love:

“Our learning journey for Love begins with ourselves, the proximate.”

“Through accepting ourselves, both strengths and weaknesses, without under-estimating or over-reaching, we learn Humility and love of the Present.  Loving others, to grow, to succeed, is the extension.”

“Make time daily to nurture your physical, mental and emotional.”  Lailah Gifty Akita

“You cannot serve from an empty vessel.” Eleanor Brownn

“He who seeks to share his Harvest, must not forget to tend his soil.”

“Awareness, acceptance and tenderness are the seeds from which Love sprouts.  There can be no true Love without awareness.  Good vibes without deep knowledge is only infatuation.”
