- Develop a plan for achieving those goals. I usually start with my mission and vision. Then, take action on it every single day.
- Prioritize self-care by making sure you’re taking care of your body, mind, and spirit.
- Let go of toxic relationships and surround yourself with positive, supportive people.
- Seek help if needed — family, friends, therapy, counseling, or coaching.
- Forget your past, don’t worry about your future, and stay in the present.
It may take time and effort, but taking small steps at 1% every day can make progress toward getting your life back on track.

- The greatest obstacle to living is expectancy, which hangs upon tomorrow and loses today. You are arranging what lies in Fortune’s control, and abandoning what lies in yours. What are you looking at? To what goal are you straining? The whole future lies in uncertainty: live immediately — Lucius Annaeus Seneca
- The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts: therefore, guard accordingly, and take care that you entertain no notions unsuitable to virtue and reasonable nature — Marcus Aurelius
- For what else is tragedy than the portrayal in tragic verse of the sufferings of men who have attached high value to external things? — Epictetus
Indigenous Cultures in an Interconnected World (Claire Smith & Graeme Ward)
It is a book that examines and analyzes how globalization and new technologies affect indigenous peoples.
- There are a lot of benefits to our globalized world. But when it comes to globalization, it’s not all rosy. These benefits come with a price, with cultural goods often being ripped from their original context — and becoming commodified in the process.
- We live in a world dominated by stereotypes. Indigenous communities prefer “living in the past” rather than adjusting to “modern” life. But they have demonstrated flexibility when it comes to adjusting to new realities. For example: before Europeans arrived, they were constantly figuring out creative ways to communicate with each other — sign language for important concepts such as the location of bison, water, or even mutual enemies.
- One way indigenous peoples engage with our globalized world is through Cultural Activism. This harnesses the power of globalized media and the internet to empower them in various ways. These cultural activists are helping to revive indigenous languages, document history, and share the issues they face with the wider world. But, the internet has its drawbacks. With anyone able to share anything, they are losing control over all forms of indigenous culture. They are constantly shared without permission. Do you think controlling is still possible?
- Fighting for the control of cultural representations isn’t something new for them. This cultural theft can take many forms. The original context indigenous American headdresses are often worn by the most respected members of the community. But nowadays, they’re seen donning the heads of partygoers at music festivals. Think about this: can selling art, textiles, and other objects still foster intercultural understanding today?
- Another way that globalization is changing our world is by redefining identities. One area is through media. People around the world are watching the same films and listening to the same music. An increase in cultural uniformity will be reflected in how people conceive their identity. But while the rest of the world is rocked by a globalization-induced identity crisis, indigenous communities have a bit of a head start as they’ve been dealing with identity issues since the beginning of colonialism.
Globalization affects all of us. But with the experiences of colonialism, indigenous people are way better prepared than us. Overall, globalization entails challenges as well as opportunities for them.
