Don’t count on anything. The moment you craft for yourself any reliance on what the future might bring, you’re locked into the unknown and render yourself a leaf in the breeze.
Abandon old structures. Drop shame. Withdraw perfectionism. Be your best, be yourself, and march onward.
We can’t know what the future might bring. Making oneself dependent on any outcome—when such dependence is anything but necessary—is lifestyle Russian roulette. The way through the future is agile strength and adaptive readiness, not stock planning nor course plotting.
Usually, dependence on the future stems from immaturely prioritizing wants above needs. · · · →
A kid handed me a paper with a Bible verse written on it. The way he handed it to me didn’t make sense. It drooped down to the floor. His hand was closer to me than the actual paper. The side of the paper facing me was blank.
I honestly didn’t know what he was handing me, if it was a joke or he just didn’t understand presentation.
He needed the talk on giving something to someone: so the recipient knows what it is.
Rather than ranting about marketing, I’ll merely mention both marketing and precious diamonds in their rough. · · · →
The world has an overabundance of independent wills, each orbiting with its own motive. No matter what pursues you, something else is pursuing it, just as you have your own pursuits.
When an adversary focuses too much energy on one target, it leaves itself vulnerable to other assaults. This is true in commerce, friendship, politics, and war.
If an enemy comes after you, stare him down. Keep him busy. While he aims all his focus toward you, his flanks remain open. No such assailant lacks enemies. Sooner or later, one of the bounty hunters looking for him will swoop in. · · · →
There is a superstitions lie floating in the philosophies of mankind, perpetuated by closet elitists who mask the secrets of their wealth through well-funded ignorance among the masses. The superstition is that a rock must fall from the sky in order for anyone to become wealthy; any other wealth was stolen in a zero sum game.
Actually, wealth comes from a synergistic game when we live by wise choices, guided by wisdom from beyond our own lives. The Pilgrims landed a “rock” upon the North: the Bible from Heaven, and prosperity is freely available to all who obey that book. · · · →
