If we learn life’s lessons, we will do well. If not, life will just continue to push us around. People do two things. Some just let life push them around. Others get angry and push back. But they push back against their boss, or their job, or their husband or wife. They do not know it’s life that’s pushing.
Life pushes all of us around. Some people give up and others fight. A few learn the lesson and move on. They welcome life pushing them around. To these few people, it means they need and want to learn something. They learn and move on. Most quit, and a few fights.
If we learn this lesson, we will grow into a wise, wealthy, and happy young person. If we don’t, we will spend our life blaming a job, low pay, or our boss for our problems. We’ll live life always hoping for that big break that will solve all our money problems.
Or if we’re the kind of person who has no guts, we just give up every time life pushes us. If we’re that kind of person, we’ll live all our life playing it safe, doing the right things, saving our self for some event that never happens. Then we die a boring old creature. We’ll have lots of friends who really like us because we were such a nice hardworking guy. But the truth is that we let life push us into submission. Deep down we were terrified of taking risks. We really wanted to win, but the fear of losing was greater than the excitement of winning.
Deep inside, we and only we will know we didn’t go for it. We chose to play it safe
