If you watch the news, it can seem like the world is falling apart. The media is known for its sensationalized headlines and negative reporting so it’s easy to get discouraged about where our world is going. But sometimes a little perspective is all we need. While things may seem dire, we truly have come a long way. Take a look at how our world has drastically improved over the past two centuries.
The Numbers Don’t Lie
According to a recent poll, only 6% of Americans think the world is getting better2, but we should be much more optimistic than that! Extreme poverty now only affects 10% of the population compared to 94%, and 85% of our world is literate. We no longer have to live in fear of diseases like whooping cough or worry about our children not living past their 5th birthday.
We have a long way to go, and we may make mistakes along the way, but the data is optimistic in the areas that matter. Society is improving, and that is enough of a reason to move forward with hope! Remember, positive changes happen over time, and this is true for your finances as well. As you stay disciplined, save little by little, and keep your eyes focused on your goals, you will also have good things to look forward to! At Fiduciary Wealth Management, we want to help you achieve your life and financial goals with confidence. Schedule a phone call now to get an idea of how great your finances could look in the future!
