  3. It’s easy for you but not for me

Thing 1 - See cocoa farmers taste chocolate for the first time
This is the dose of positivity you needed today.
Cocoa farmers in Côte d'Ivoire
  • Farm their cocoa beans
  • Send them out
  • Don’t even know what they’re used for
Now you’re thinking: They must be happy cause they had chocolate for the first time.
Maybe.
Watching them joke around and vibe with each other tells me there’s more to it.
(video jumps straight into the tasting)

Thing 2 - Quadriplegic walks thanks to a brain implant and exoskeleton
Nightmares are made of stuff that leads to a title like this.
Thibault fell from a balcony - 12 meters (40 feet) up - while on a night out. You know what happened next.
Instead of wallowing, he partnered with French scientists. They planted 2 chips into his brain‘s sensorimotor cortex.
2 years of training and 1 exoskeleton later, he was able to walk.
See for yourself in the video below.

The whole setup has many limitations and Tom Shakespeare called it “a long way from usable clinical possibility”. But…
This is now almost 3 year old technology.
Tesla is developing the Tesla bot and Neuralink is on track for the first human trials by the end of the year.
The future is exciting!
Thing 3 - It's easy for you but not for me
If you are wealthy, many people want to believe you were already born in a wealthy family.
If you are smart, talented, good-looking, loved, they want to believe it all came with no effort.
People love to make assumptions about you that make them feel better about themselves.
- Orange Book
People will believe what they decide to believe. It’s not your job to change their mind. Focus on being the best you.
You’re more than the sum of people’s opinions of you.
If you need to be a self-fulfilling prophecy, choose to be one by the people who believe in you.
You got this!
Cheers, Zvonimir
