The Lie We Live – Lets Change The World

It's easy to get depressed and down looking at the state the world is in around us. We only have to switch on the news, open a newspaper or look at the headlines around us to see the world is in an utter mess. War, destruction and poverty everywhere we turn. It can be easy to get depressed and down, this video created by Spencer Cathcart serves to be an inspiration that YOU as an individual and we as a SOCIETY have the power to change the destructive road we're walking down.


The Lie We Live – Inspiring or Depressing?

When I first came across the video above called The Lie We Live made by Spencer Cathcart, I had real hesitations about posting and promoting the video here on Advice For All. The reason being was the video can come across as rather doom and gloom and very depressing.

The Lie We Live opens our eyes to just how bad the world has become and the dire situation we are in as well as the stark reality that if we continue the way we have been the world could be heading towards an irreversible destructive path.

However, when you look deeper into the video and the message behind it, it’s clear to see that it’s not all doom and gloom and in fact it’s quite the opposite, it’s a reminder that we as individuals have the power to change the future and to make a massive impact on this world, that message in itself is why this video has to be one of the most inspiring and motivational videos I’ve watched in a long time and why I decided to publish it here on Advice For All.

You Have The Power to Change The World

It sounds corny, but it’s true! It’s easy to think that one person on their own can not change the world. This video reminds us that this isn’t true that both you as an individual and the rest of society can collectively stand up and make a change and ultimately change the destructive destiny that we’re heading towards.

Above I talked about my reservations with publishing this video on AFA. I know how videos that show the stark and often dark reality of our world like this video (The Lie We Live) can have a huge negative impact on our mental health. I myself, am affected by mental health issues and this video had the opposite impact on me. It ignited a fire within me that both inspired and motivated me, it made me realise that I have the power to change the road we’re walking down that I can become more involved in social activism and have a positive impact on changing this world we live in for the better.
