Does the idea of living simply in an off-grid cabin appeal to you?

If so, this short film by Happen Films will be a great source of inspiration.

yes of course but many cabins are not especially environmentally friendly and hazardous from the health point :/ (most in fact)

Local Futures / Economics of Happiness

"Our work is about rebuilding, actively and consciously, more community and connection to place, shortening the distances that things travel and reducing the CO2 emissions. That's what we call the economics of happiness." Helena Norberg-Hodge / Ladakh Ecological Development Group, 1986 Right Livelihood Award Laureate

We want policymakers to wake up and consider the ground under their feet, the food on their plates, and the global effects of industrial agriculture.

95% of our food comes from topsoil, but the world risks running out of topsoil in less than 60 years. One of the main causes of this degradation is the intensity and heavy chemical outputs of industrial agriculture.

In the midst of a #ClimateEmergency and growing worldwide poverty - this has to change.

Please share if you agree.

The same way a successful capitalist increases their odds of success (success is NEVER guaranteed) is the same way we develop one day max work weeks with all needs met at zero financial cost only TOGETHER

I have people tell me more often than you might think, how lucky I am. I guess they think I am lucky because I have a successful real estate investing business that generates a high 5 figure income every single month.

I started investing over 20 years ago and have spent thousands and thousands of hours and dollars on books and courses, listening to podcasts and webinars, talking to thousands of buyers and sellers and attending who knows how many seminars and boot camps. In the beginning, I spent many 70 hour weeks at my job then stayed up until 2 or 3 in the morning learning how to create my freedom from a job I hated and build the life I knew I was meant to live.

Luck played no role whatsoever. Hard work, tenacity and determination were key in every step along the way.

Specifically, these things were key...

Doing the work needed when it was needed

Finding and developing the people I needed in my business

Not listening to haters and avoiding toxic people

Staying focused when shiny objects were all around me

Not giving up when things were hard

Funny, but I find myself having to do these same 5 things even today to stay successful.

Go out and create your destiny! Luck has absolutely nothing to do with it.youtube.com
