The Sweetness of Success
Quote of the day
‘In order to appreciate the sweetness of life we need sometimes to experience the bitterness of life itself. This is why the road to Success can be as endearing as a laden vehicle travelling upstream on a venture of quest, knowledge and wisdom.’
An embracing welcome to Tuesday the 19th of January 2016. It is bitterly cold in good old London Town with temperatures plummeting. We have past the middle of January 2016, with 337 days remaining in the year we can make significant changes to our lives if we wanted to. Sometimes changes can be difficult. Despite our obvious determination somehow or somewhere an opposing force awaits us. What will tomorrow hold for you? Will it be a day of dismay, will it be the usual Wednesday or will it be a day that pays? Building on life’s experiences helps you to cope in the good times and in the bad times. If you had a bitter day yesterday, then look at ways of making it a better day tomorrow. Yesterday’s experience can become tomorrow’s perseverance. Sometimes we want to blame someone else for our own wrongdoings. This is quite wrong. We need to learn from our own experiences and ensure that we don’t make them again. To maintain a constant and composite day, you need to abide by a set of rules that has previously worked. In my third book, The Key to Happiness I state quite clearly how important it is to follow instructions and how to abide by them so that we avoid getting into trouble. Learning from our mistakes helps us to avoid making them again. These are called life skills. There are so many factors that can topple your day. A train or a tube strike could disrupt your day. Your PC can interrupt your day if it crashes. Tempers can erupt if people step on each other’s toes. Every single day has its ups and downs. You need to learn from those discomforting moments and ensure that you don’t make the same mistake again. Start by living in anticipation. Make preparations for the unexpected. Have a backup plan and implement it when the need arises. Seek help when your troubles start to become a pile of rubble. In order to appreciate the sweetness of life we need sometimes to experience the bitterness of life itself. As the idiom goes, ‘Once bitten, twice shy’. Always try to avoid making the same blunder again and again.
