Having endless power and control would be a dream come true.
Do you ever wish you had a magic wand that could fix all your problems in a blink of an eye? Do you ever wish you could solve all the world’s problems in a way that wouldn’t put anyone at risk or in harm’s way?
If you had all the power that ever existed, what would you do with it? Would you end world hunger? Would you invent a solid, pain-free cure for cancer? Or would you do something more simple, like turning bad food into healthy food, making shorter work days, or rewinding time to that one night on the beach with a summer fling who had you on cloud 9?
It’s human nature to want to make a change. It’s human nature to want to make a difference. And it’s also human nature to wish we lived a different life. As the saying goes, the grass is always greener on the other side. It seems as though we are always wishing that we lived closer to our best friend, our parents were divorced, or we made better grades in school. Where’s the power when you need it?
If you had unlimited power, what are your next big plans?
Surprisingly, many Twitter users responses are heartwarming! Some say they would use their power to help others and create a world in which everyone is happy and kind to one another.
What would you do?
