A Successful Life?
What is this picture? A stock market graph? A mountain range? The mouth of a shark? No, it is simply my bad drawing of life.
Life goes up and down, not straight up. This is not life:
1. Never look back, no matter how difficult it might be, because the past is loaded with regrets. As human beings, we tend to look back to sad memories, rather than happy ones, and we take away from the present.2. I am not what I do. As a man who loves adventure and challenge, I have made it a point to earn my living multi-tasking. I have always ventured into a variety of occupations simultaneously, and believe me when I state that I started at the bottom. What makes me who I am has little to do with occupation. Being a plumber, lawyer, taxi driver, or rocket scientist is not who you are. It is simply something you do. I am more than that.3. Never strive for mediocrity. Isn’t it a waste of life to make a half-hearted effort at anything? Does it work in the employment world? Or in marriage? Or in child rearing? How about in sports, dieting, communication, swimming lessons, or listening? We hear with our ears. We listen with our minds.
