Does optimism grow in people’s minds when it proves to be a good approach to life? It may have been the Secret’s law of attraction that have been bringing blessings to my life in the past few years, with a positive attitude towards life. Or, it may be a stronger tainted sense of optimism that grew inside me to color many little things happening in my life as blessings. I have reached to a point where I can no longer see boundaries that would limit my ambition or capabilities. A sense of confidence that if I really want something in this life, I can make it happen one day. The formula is simple, patience, persistence, positivity and time!
While I have some short term goals set for me like having my first novel Aroos Amman (Amman’s Bride) translated and published into other languages and finish writing my second novel Janna ala al Ard (Heaven on Earth). It is a life long goals that I would like to talk about here. Life long goals as in maybe goals that would be achieved in a 100 years time or so. That is something that stemmed out of writing “Heaven on Earth” and believing in the capabilities of science to cure aging. A new hope is born in me, a profound sense of empowerment that allows me to dream BIG.. real big.
So here are my 3 one hundred years goals to work on (We’ll address this on 2112 in order to see how much I achieved of this. Make sure to stick around!):
1. Contribue to the battle of fighting aging towards ending it:
That would happen if “Janna ala al ard” becomes an international best seller. I would make sure to donate a big amount of money to the scientific research that focus on defeating aging. It may very well be an investment in one of those promising startups that work on different lines of rejuvenation bio technologies. Help speeding up the research and brining out those solutions sooner than later. I may very well get myself closer to a certain research, learn biochemistry, and maybe come up with a scientific breakthrough. Big ambition, I know..
2. Build a personal flying machine:
I still don’t understand why this thing haven’t became mainstream yet! With the advancement of science and technology we have these days, it makes no sense that there is no technology introduced yet that makes such device to be convenient enough and affordable enough for many people on this planet. If I am to get the chance to work on such a machine before anyone else does, I would have to go back to school and study mechanics, latest physics, and technology! One thing that I know that I won’t do, is being another Abbas Bin Farnas! No miscalculated trials for me.
My initial imagination for the device to be a wearable two ballons on the back of the body and a small electric motor to push the body forward. We don’t want to depend on the power of the wind for this, do we?
3. Instant transportation:
I think that this is the most ambitious goal since the first two has a strong ground of science that is already built up and many other people around the world working to make it happen. I can’t believe how happy I would be if instant transportation became a reality. Imagine having breakfast in your kitchen in Amman before going into this gate that takes you to your office in Chicago and then in your lunch break you go to your favorite restaurant in Paris? The world would be crazy, I know! and while science has no clue if this would ever be a real possibility, one thing we should keep in mind, everything is possible in this world. Light is no better than us, is it?
If you are to go wild and think of the top 3 goals that you would achieve if you have the time of 100-1000 years. What would that be?
