It’s different from being 21 and you think there’s endless amount of opportunities. At 33, the ending is much, much closer.
After potatoes have been harvested they have to be spread out and sorted out in order to get the maximum market dollar. They are divided according to size – big , medium and small. It is only after potatoes have been sorted and bagged that they are loaded on to trucks. This is the method that all potatoes farmers use.
But one farmer never bothered to sort the potatoes at all. Yet he seemed to be making most money. a puzzled neighbour finally asked him, “What is your secret?” He said, “Its simple I just loaded up the wagon with potatoes and take the roughest road to town. During the eight mile trip, the little potatoes always fall to the bottom. The medium potatoes land in the middle, while the big potatoes rise to the top.”
That is not only true with potatoes. It is Law of life. Big potatoes rise to the top on the rough roads and tough people rise to the top in rough times.
The Law of Motion: Objects in motion stay in motion. Therefore, once we became effective, empowered, and confident, there is no going back the way we were. Just as once a mind is stretched by a thought, it cannot return to its original size.
Being even 1/1000th of a degree off course can mean the difference between ultimate success and ultimate failure.
If we assemble our dreams like a mosaic pattern of a jigsaw puzzle, we will see our future realized when the puzzle is complete.
Life opens up opportunities to you, and you either take them or you stay afraid of taking them.- Jim Carrey
Life goes by so fast and with such ferocity that if you don’t have fun every single day your life is wasted like dust in the wind. Five minutes a day dedicated to having fun can give life the spice it needs.
Children define their lives by the amount of fun they have. As we mature, we lose touch with the Fun. We forget what it’s like to be kids, and as a result, we harden to life’s wonders. Without fun, you cannot be motivated. Without fun, you cannot get inspired. Without fun, you cannot perform at your highest level of excellence.
So have a ball, have a bat, have a Frisbee for what it’s worth. But have fun. Live longer. Live happier and with more meaning. The Fun isn’t a novelty or luxury. It’s a necessity. Now go have some Fun!
To find what you seek in the road of life, the best proverb of all is that which says: Leave No Stone Unturned – Edward Bulwer Lytton.
