So I was doing some browsing on the internet recently and of course, the search engine came in handy when seeking the content I needed. I realized the endless number of pages that were available and relevant to what I needed and two words--"POSSIBILITIES" and "OPTIONS" automatically sprung into my mind. I've been utilizing search engines every since I've known how and I had just realized that I never really desire to go passed the first couple of pages of results. Seemingly and supposedly, the first few pages of the search results contains the most popular and updated information relevant to your search. Also, who really has time to skim through thousands and thousands of pages of content? You won't find many of us doing that. When the two words "POSSIBILITIES" and "OPTIONS" came into my mind, it was because I started to realize the amount of information available at just a click away, and that is pretty amazing. Now I see why many of my school instructors from the past always side lectured us on how much of a "luxury" we have with the internet available to help us out on research and assignments. Their side lectures pretty much suggested that students had no reason to not be better than generations of the past and had no reason for excuses or mediocrity when it came to school work and knowledge. Why? Because the internet and search engines go way beyond the days of only having so much to obtain research from; the options for your search are greater and the possibilities for your greatness are just a bit better.
This is so much like life. I've looked around plenty of times and realized just how many possibilities there are for greatness in my life. I've also observed the luxury of the many options I have in life. I have realized that many of us, including myself, just do not realize this sometimes. We utilize our life's search engines in search for the things we want and need, but we never look upon the results that come after the first few "pages". But why? Of course, we as a society increasingly step into so much convenience that we have become a bit too lax to stretch ourselves beyond the point of taking the first few steps. For many of us, after we attempt something and are met with not quite what we had in mind, we cease to try and fail to realize just how many other possibilities there are and options that we have. So then, what is the solution? In our search for the things we need and want, we must learn to utilize our lives' "search engines" differently. We must practice exploring the possibilities in life by going beyond the first few pages of the results we received and make use of other options.
