I found this awesome video on Facebook and it really made me think about why I exist. It reminded me that I have a purpose. I have absolutely NO IDEA WHY this generation is so negative towards themselves. I never fail to encounter a situation where someone I consider a friends says, “I’m going to kill myself.” They mean it as a joke, but it really isn’t.

This video does a great job with giving us the probability of your existence. It’s great if you can understand Spanish because it will help you understand a lot more. Although, it’s OK if you don’t because the message is very simple.

This is what you need to know:

  • The chances of you parents meeting in one place
    • 1 in 20,000
  • The chances of your parents talking
    • 1 in 10
  • The chances of them going out a second time
    • 1 in 100
  • The chances of them being together until they have children
    • 1 in 2
  • The chance of the sperm which YOU were born out of to meet with your mother’s egg
    • 1 in 400,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
  • Other probabilities

All of this means that the chance of you existing is:

1 in 10²⁶⁸⁵⁰⁰⁰

But what does this number mean? All we know is that it’s a really huge number. The video provides a phenomenal analogy.

The probability of you existing is the same as if 2 million people were to meet at the same place, throw a dice with a trillion faces, and for all of them to get the SAME 12 digit number!

Stop being so negative about who you are. You have a purpose. It may not be what you expect, but you have one. Love yourself.
