Way back in the early days of human exploration, they didn’t really have an idea of where they were going.
All they knew that if they kept going across the vast ocean, they might find some riches.
The TV show “Vikings” started with them sailing toward what they hoped was England.
They had to do it in secret, since their current ruler didn’t believe there was anything there worth getting.
Way way back in the early days of humans, they were nomads.
All they knew is that maybe over the next set of hills would be some better and safer places to hunt.
In some respects, we are incredibly lucky to be alive.
We’ve got all kinds of technology, medicine, entertainment, etc.
But in other respects, it might be the worst time to be alive.
Too late to explore the world, but too early to explore the galaxy.
Of course, there are a lot of ways you can go exploring.
You don’t have to pack a bag and wander the Earth like that dude from Pulp Fiction wanted to do.
Sometimes getting to know another person is a lot like exploring.
Or meeting new people.
Just like those early sailors setting out across the vast seas, you might get nothing.
But you might find treasure.
And if you can find treasure in somebody else, who equally is finding treasure in you, that’s a pretty good place to be.
Most people do this haphazardly.
Much like they early explorers.
They kept going in a certain direction and hoped for the best.
Sometimes that works.
But it feels like you are at the mercy of the gods.
You can, however, accelerate the process.
Because while most people are haphazardly looking for treasure, you can build it.
Build it in the mind’s of others when they think of you.
Which will elicit their own unique treasure as a response.
That way you can significantly increase your chances.
Or you can just decide to find treasure everywhere.
