What you have described about life has no doubt been experienced by almost everyone who has ever lived. Even the rich and famous have things in their
lives that perplex them to no end.
They have learned to keep up a good " Game Face " in life though, and that makes it appear outwardly that life is always a charmed dream for them.
Everyone has their problems in this life, even though outwardly it might not look like it.
If you haven't already read the " Book of Ecclesiastes " in the Bible, I Highly Recommend that you do read it. It was written by King Solomon who the
bible describes as being Blessed by God with the Greatest Wisdom and Wealth of Any King that ever lived. Even King Solomon described the problems in
this life, and his sadness of observing the vanity of it all.
A few years back I was watching " Jack Nicklaus " being interviewed on some golf program about his many tournament wins. The interviewer asked Jack
Nicklaus what was the Secret to Winning golf tournaments ?
Jack Nicklaus told the Interviewer that in order to Win Golf Tournaments, you have to Practice, and Practice and Practice every day. You also have to
exercise and stay in tip top condition so that you can play your best.
However, Jack Nicklaus also said this: And on top of practicing and working hard every day and playing your best - In order to " Win Tournaments "
You also had to ' Get The Breaks " with how your ball landed etc.
Jack stated that you " Could Not Win " Golf Tournaments, " Unless You Had Some Good Luck Too " with how and where your golf ball landed. Practice and
work and exercise is not " Everything Needed To Win " You also had to have some good luck and get some lucky landings and bounces etc. !
Solomon said in Ecclessiastes that he percieved in his heart that one event happeneth to them all.
So " no new thing under the sun " etc.
In modern day philosophy, " keeping the carburator steady " in life helps a whole lot..
