Excellent post mopus.
Your eloquence is astounding, especially given the intended recipient of that beautiful piece of writing.
I have no doubt that scorchedearth will acquire some humility with the passing of time. The child will learn as children do - by doing and having
things done to him, he will hopefully learn something of his quality.
I hope he then corrects himself.
Thanks, you know... it's interesting, I was divorced about a year and a half ago ( might be getting back together ) but, I let her have
So i just had to do it again... over 18 months, the whole dang thing lol, I had to relive every part of it and what took me 18 years the first time
for all intents and purposes took me 18 months this time.
and i'm talking from less than zero
If I knew then what I knew now, it all could have been so easy the first time. Wouldn't have had the problems that rocked my marriage, wouldn't have
hung out in the faux scenes with other hot headed ready to take on the world types,
and I never would have genuinely allowed myself to think I'm better than anyone else.
This round I've come up ultra fast, only on that humilty you wisely just mentioned, genuine class, doing or others and being of service anyway you
can, letting go of ego and concentrating on being the best and more than that
your goal can't be the money at all. It has to be providing that service to others, taking employees this time, I concentrated on giving them a great
job not my profit line, I took nothing for myself, I didn't write myself a salry all year beyond expenses, I based by goals around being useful and
doing good things that actualy helped people, no gimicks, no games, no get rich quick illusions just the potential for growth and providing service
That worked 1,000 x better
and I had to walk up, from 18 months ago a room in a house full of dope fiends on the west side, to The university, to scottsdale to here... and I
bounced so fast by simply not thinking about myself and seeking to do things for other people my head is still spinning
and listening to this, it just reminded me of myself 10 years ago and the wrong way to think and the wrong attitude and the wrong reasons and the fury
and the ego and...
lol I just had to take a step back here and laugh becuase so much lately, and not to be all religous or anything, but so much lately i feel like, the
man gives me signs man and reminds me to keep it in check myself
and I remember a long time ago in a personality far far away... being a big douche at the scottsdale bars with my first money
And you know 18 months ago, I could have been on welfare myself and Humility somehow gets taught to you one way or another if you don't
So, he can rant and curse , or listen, not my problem lol, but the advice is sound and welfare really doesn't hurt any of our pockts and somehow
someway, you do reap what you sow in life, where I am now and who I am around, they mostly all got there the same way and it's the exception to the
rule not the rule that hard ass behavior, ingratitude and ego is the recipie for success.
and yeah, you know... I could have taken welfare when my life went to zero and I didn't, but I know it;s crutch and other people don't alot of
people are parasites, alot of people do nothing, alot of people are selfish and addicted and all the rest.
But it's not their childrens faults, often it's not their own fault, being dumb isn't a crime, niether is being born, I can't say that being an
addict is a crime either...
some people I know and I have known plenty who are addicts, sure they would steal for their fix, or worse, if they didn't get help
but you know what, they are addicts, alot of them because they feel so deeply they can't handle reality, they are emotional, they have seriously good
hearts and just can't cope and I don't mind it if they get that 1% lol and it keeps them from having to do degrading things or criminal things
because for whatever reason they just can't function.
I just give thanks that I can function, the world can do sick things to people, who am I to judge?
and, I can't personally fix their issues, I don't want to have to hire people who really maybe just need to sit on a couch alot and it's enough for
them to cope with that, I'd rather let them be taken care of, I can't run a business and be a psychiatrist simultaneously
Tont Robbins can explain all this to them better than I and lol, they don't listen to the tapes, you can't force people to change or understand
we have food rotting in silos in america, there is no major expense for welfare, the % never varies much, of people in that state of mind, most of us
aren't running off to get the govt cheese if more is offered.
alot of these people have real problems, lol, I was forced to live among alot of them for a few short months less than 2 years ago, they didn't
"get" what I was saying, there was no motivating them, they need psychiatric help alot of them, to be rebuilt, and they can't even get the money
for that in this system.
Rofl pregnant women get WIC they get Cheese, and Milk and 2% juice
food stamps they have to wait a month for when they have no food, money which in the end goes right back to American businesses, grocers and farms
that pay taxes
and if housing is an issue they get section 8 hich is rarely a nice neighborhood
and thats for a pregnant mom. Maybe her kid will grow up to be an Einstien, who knows, it happens he wasn't rich
Rofl maybe we should have thrown Steven Hawkins off a cliff because he was a Crippie kid, g-d knows he didn't deserve some aid if he ever needed it
