The Fact That You Exist Is Actually Incredible (VIDEO)

Have you ever stopped to think about how amazing it is that you actually exist?

To put it in perspective: There are 7 billion people in the world. To become one of those 7 billion citizens, several important, star-aligning moments had to happen. Your parents had to be in the same place at the same time, they had to converse, overcome a series of events or challenges, find each other attractive or go on dates and so on. That's pretty powerful.

Still not convinced of your worth? Who you are right now is also not a coincidence, but an accumulation of your experiences -- and your impact as a human being can go a lot further than you think.

"Every person you meet, every conversation you have, everything that you do, every heartache, every blissful moment -- that creates who you would be now," Pat Graziosi explains in his Weekly Positive series video. "You went through life affecting every single person you came in contact with -- and it's hard to feel insignificant when you think about that."

Approaching life with a positive attitude has been proven to help people live longer, handle stress more smoothly and even broadens the mind for a greater sense of possibility.

Check out the video above for more positive inspiration and revel in the fact that your existence is awesome.
