Hey I like sci-fi, and it is much better than the alternative. But seriously, what the Frack! What have you done with your life so far? Are you were you want to be? Financially? Spiritually? Socially? or Physically? Are you currently building long term equity? Paying down debt or just getting by? What ever your current situation you have made the choices whether consciously or unconsciously that brought you to where you are now. You are also the only one who can do anything about it. So unless your life is perfect, exactly what you want, you got some work to do.
Today my wife and I packed our our kids ( we have 3) and took them down to see the Buskers at the Halifax International Busker Festival. While we were down there we caught a show, had lunch and walked till we were all tired. The thing that stuck in my mind the most from our trip to the Halifax waterfront was not the performers or the crowds of people, it was the 2 mega yachts that I saw while were were there.
I assume if money were no object we would all live the high life. Is it that only a very small percentage of people aspire to greatness and the rest just settle for a life of mediocrity? This reminds me of a passage from Napoleon Hill’s book “Think and Grown Rich“; “
I bargained with Life for a penny,
And Life would pay no more,
However I begged at evening
When I counted my scanty store.
“For Life is a just employer,
He gives you what you ask,
But once you have set the wages,
Why, you must bear the task.
“I worked for a menial’s hire,
Only to learn, dismayed,
That any wage I had asked of Life,
Life would have willingly paid.”
