“YOU ARE LIVING IN THE PAST.”
Are you one of 10% or 90%? 90% of the world population is living in the past in more ways than one. In the past we all went to work eight to ten hours a day. We came home sat around with the family seven days a week, twelve months a year, never venturing away from the routine. The only break from the routine was a holiday at the beach or other. Some call it the comfort zone.
From the comfort zone if something went wrong it is easy to start a backward negative way of thinking for most people. Very few people think positive with that type of situation. I found it a way to advance up the ladder a step or two. My last job up was where I started thirty years before as a manager.
A lot of business sees that as you are getting older and comfortable in your way of life a chance to take advantage of you by not increasing your wages if possible and your position in the business.
When I was working years ago, every five years or so I would see no ladder to climb, so I would leave and move up the ladder into the next job.
After six jumps up the ladder over thirty years I found that I was in my sixties and again been taken advantage of, so I retired.
With the internet change, work systems changing all the time, it is time to stop living in the past. We must now live in the future with a positive attitude that nothing is impossible. Be the Spark. Light up your life and have a go by looking around you at what everybody is doing outside the square and improve on it. Every fire starts from a little spark, so give it a go now. Start small grow big.
Be a winner, ignore all comments and be thick skinned. Just keep at it and do not waste time on what if or may be if. Remember everything in life was not made perfect the first time. That would have been a miracle.
Once we reach thirty five to forty years of age, we start to naturally see life with a bigger picture and how everything can be improved. With your knowledge you should be able to improve on what you know and you have experienced.
Put in the effort around home then expand into your work zone. Then work on all the life around you. Have your say constructively in the world around you, and you will make it a better world. I watch and learn from everything around me.
I do not want to stop learning until the day I die.
It is just as easy to put in the effort and try to do something rather than do nothing as it will be harder on you latter. Why give up. Working at a higher level, putting in the effort is just as hard as doing nothing as it will hurt you in the end. It does not hurt the brain to think positive rather than negative. Your body does the work that is hard so do not let it become negative.
Make a plan for the rest of the week and when you have mastered it make one for the month ahead. Then make one for the year, then five then ten years. Keep planning your future and it will grow beyond your dreams of years ago. Many opportunities await those who give it a go. So do not live in the past tense.
You are never too old to have a go like I am at 76 years of age.
for your time, Tom Short.
…………………………………Laughter is the best medicine,
A guy walked into a crowded bar, waving his pistol and yelled, “I have a Ruger 9mm with a ten shot magazine and I want to know who’s been sleeping with my wife.”
A voice from the back of the room called out, “You’ll need more ammo than that.”
Two Red Indians and an Irishman were walking through the woods.
All of a sudden one of the Red Indians ran up a hill to the mouth of a small cave.
‘Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!’ he called into the cave and listened closely until he heard an answering,
‘Wooooo! Wooooo! Woooooo!
He then tore off his clothes and ran into the cave.
The Irishman was puzzled and asked the remaining Indian what it was all about,.
‘Was the other Indian crazy or what?’
The Indian replied ‘No, It is our custom during mating season when Indian men see cave, they holler
‘Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!’ into the opening. If they get an answer back, it means there’s a beautiful squaw in there waiting for us.
Just then they came upon another cave.
The second Indian ran up to the cave, stopped, and hollered,
‘Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!’
Immediately, there was the answer.
‘Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!’ from deep inside.
He also tore off his clothes and ran into the opening.
The Irishman wandered around in the woods alone for a while, and then spied a third large cave.
As he looked in amazement at the size of the huge opening, he was thinking,
‘Hoo, man! Look at the size of this cave! It is bigger than those the Indians found.
There must be some really big, fine women in this cave!’
He stood in front of the opening and hollered with all his might
‘Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!’ Like the others, he then heard an answering call, ‘WOOOOOOOOO, WOOOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOO!’
With a gleam in his eye and a smile on his face, he raced into the cave, tearing off his clothes as he ran.
The following day, the headline of the local newspaper read……………
