Trucking Through Life #2…

Trucking Through Life #2…

I’m not going to attempt to fool you with all those “Volume & Number” gimmicks. This is segment two (2) in this series and any numbers that follow will be just like upshifting the gears in my truck.

How long has it been since you ran into or worse yet force to work with someone that is just down right miserable? For whatever reason life didn’t serve them up the bowl of cheerios they naturally thought they deserved. I personally attempt to spend as little time around these individuals because we all are products of our environment and if you are around them too long, no matter how hard you try, they will eventually rub off on you. Be what it may, “Trucking Through Life” I’ve had to downshift and put the pedal to the metal in order to move past these individuals and leave them in my rearview mirror. But here is what I learned while passing them. First you must choose to be happy. Secondly, you have to make it happen. And thirdly, you must have a happy personal life in order to ever have a happy and successful professional career, if that is what you want. Problems in your personal life no matter what they are will always come back and haunt your work life. So what did I learn when I passed them up, I learned that all of them had an unhappy personal life be it love, money, alcohol or a combination of all three.  Charlie Chaplin lived a happy life for 88 years and he left us with these four (4) profound statements:

  1. Nothing is forever in this world, even our problems.
  2. I love to walk in the rain because no one can see my tears.
  3. The most lost day in life is the day we don’t laugh.
  4. Six (6) of the best doctors in the world:
    1. Sun
    2. Rest
    3. Exercise
    4. Diet
    5. Self-respect
    6. Friends

Personally I feel sorry for those who never find personal or professional happiness, all you can do it set the best example you can be by remaining positive no matter what what your current serving of cheerios might be. David Rossi stated “Scars remind us where we’ve been. They don’t have to dictate where we’re going.
