This’s because of new technological breakthroughs in health care, agriculture, transportation and investment in businesses. These innovations can almost bridge the gap that would be created by economic downturn and epidemics.

How to Create Better Days Ahead of You
This section highlights simple tips to help you create a better future for yourself.
These 4 tips look ordinary, but I have experimented and found out that they worked in helping to build a happy future.
- THE QUEST FOR HAPPINESS
There’s an inner desire for happiness in each of us. The quest for happiness is the reason why people wake up in the morning and go to work. It’s the reason why we get married and have children.
However, many people do not know that they are on a quest to find happiness. This quest is the reason they do what they do everyday.
But how do you find real happiness? Is it in our possessions, wives, husbands or children?
You can experience superficial happiness in the hands of the man or woman you love, but it won’t last. If it would, why do people keep searching for happiness?
Happiness is like a void in our hearts which needed to be filled always. The only way to find lasting happiness is to find the Divine essence in each of us and link up with it.
If you know God, Infinite Intelligence or the Almighty and have IT in your life, you most certainly would have complete happiness in your life (Note I am not talking about religion here).
You would know your true purpose as you have a realization of self and God here and now.
When you know your place in the scheme of things, naturally you swim in Divine bliss and happiness.
This does not mean you will not have problems and challenges in your life. The problems and challenges are what would equip you to reach this enviable heights.
To create better days ahead, the search for God which is actually the quest for happiness should be the topmost priority in your life.
When you realize God in your life that empty void is filled up and you become complete. You can then navigate the twist and turns in the world with boldness and calm.
- YOU CAN HAVE THE BEST THINGS IN LIFE
What are the best things in life? This depends on a lot of factors and individual preferences and perspectives. This is because what is good for A may not for B.
For instance, eating a simple meal under the moonlight may be considered one of life’s blessings to one person. To another person drinking an expensive wine in the club with music blaring from loud speakers is considered the good life. Who then decide what is the best life of the two scenarios?
For me personally, the best things I want to experience or do are things that would promote good health, ability to have quite time in meditation as well as doing exercises that would enhance my overall health and wellness.
If I am to enjoy better days ahead, then I want to be healthy, visit other climes and experience other cultures. As well as having a better relationship with the Almighty.
To me these are the best things in life. And I know I am entitled to them as they will enhance my state of happiness.
So when hoping for better days ahead of you, learn to embrace the simple things of life like eating simple meals, traveling, reading a nice book, and tending to a garden.
- LIVE YOUR REGULAR LIFE
If your goal is to experience and enjoy good days. You do not need to alter your life significantly to be a superhuman to achieve this.
All you need is to live the regular life you know. Do little things that will improve your ability to give love and serve life. Living your regular life ensures you give a smile and a listening ear to those who needs them.
You can help lift the burden from the tired and weary by giving your time and money.
Doing a huge favor to another involves doing little act of love and service everyday without expecting a reward.
Another side of living your regular life is doing your best at work or business without taking shortcuts to earn your daily pay through dishonest means.
When you do this you can go to bed knowing you have done your best for that day.
The combination of all these effort would set you up to having and hoping for better days ahead.
