Driving back from a dog walk today, thats what my wife asked me. What would you say to a 15yr old you if you had the chance to talk to him. What an interesting question. I was quick to respond though, although not something I had ever thought about before.
It seemed obvious to me, but then when you look back isn’t it easier to know the answers to a life you have lived rather than when you were actually living it. I mean the 15 yr old me was selling dog chews on the back of a go-kart, working 3 Saturday jobs in the summer I worked 4 paper rounds. I started to be interested in girls though, that was proberbly my downfall. That’s where I wasted all my money, trying to make girls happy, should I not have just been friends with them instead of chasing. Well it’s funny because I did not mention any of that in my answer to my wife. My answer was simple, because with a couple of simple rules in place the rest would have followed.
“concentrate on being the best you can be at one thing, and don’t exspect to get rich quick. Just do your best everyday, and learn from your mistakes don’t regret them”
That was what I said, I stand by it because is not the love of money the route of all Evil. Is not knowledge power, if you know more than your neighbour on a subject how can they dispute your decisions. By being the best you possible you become a person people gravitate towards because along with that comes confidence, self assurance. With all that comes the need for others to purchase your knowledge.
Well that’s my answer, what would your answer be, don’t think it in your head. Comment and tell us all so we can learn from what you have learnt also. We are all on different journeys aren’t we, I watched a video today of a lady aged 101 enjoying the snow even making a snow ball and throwing it. Simple things in life can mean so much, it’s down to us to make sure people in our lives get to enjoy some of those simple things isn t it. I am so glad I have faith in my life, it gives us a complete new dimension to everything.
Have a great week.
