Which Path?


“We either make ourselves miserable or we can make ourselves strong. The amount of work is the same.” – Carlos Castenda

One path drains and the other path strengthens. One path weights us down and the other path energises. One path saddens, the other path excites.

Your attitude will determine your destination.  Happiness is attainable by anyone who chooses to attain it.  I know, that sounds pretty radical in today’s razzle-dazzle society, but it is true.  Years ago, people marvelled at the level of contentedness and even joy expressed by very poor people.

Kolkata, in India was famous for it’s terrible poverty, yet it also has a spirit of thankfulness and joy that surprises so many people.  What they lack in possessions and wealth, they make up for in the joy of life.  They, it would appear, put their efforts more into making themselves happy than the suicidal opposite.

There will always be people richer than you.  There will always be people poorer than you.  People who have more things.  People who have fewer things.  People with more friends.  People with fewer friends.  The question you need to answer is: “What am I going to focus on today?” 

Take the part worth travelling. If the work is the same, why not? It leads to a healthier and happier you.

Will Do


“ Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can accomplish what others can’t” – Jerry Rice

original

Many jobs are beneath some people to tackle. Some say they have no resources and never accomplish anything. If you have time, energy, and ingenuity, you have resources. Have you ever delivered newspapers for a living? That’s income. Have you ever thought of buying two used bicycles; one to ride and one to rent. That;s income. Be clever with your resources. You could have profit and fulfil your dreams of helping others in need. Will you accomplish what others can’t because you are willing to do what others won’t?

A Malicious Character Assassination


Such a Topic has been cliched by a number of our politicians in recent times. Many from Mr. Patrick Manning to the Former bumptious Sports Minister to the now AG have commented on this topic.

However, which character have really been targeted? Our self-absorbed politicians Or the foundation on which our dear country have been built? Why hasn’t this ‘Malicious’ attack been immobilize? Why are there expectedly continuous talks about gang violence, white collar crime or about the latest constitution reform scandal?

Our country has been at its lowest, hopeless state since God knows when. Moreover those that we have placed in charge are continuing with their grandstand towards its inevitable character assassination. Do we realise how tragically farcical we must appear to simple people in the Caribbean, far less to those whom we fawn to impress in Europe and North America?

I fear for the time when our ‘sweet’ T&T, will no longer be able to bear such a name. For a time when, what our forefathers worked tirelessly for will be in tatters due to our ego suffused leaders . We have ventured across all unacceptable boundaries, only time can tell where we’ll end.

Begin Today


“Begin to be now what you will be hereafter.” – William James

nature

Don’t we always wish we were just a bit difference? We never are quite satistfied with ourselves. Well, take charge! Begin to be the person you want to be today. This will influence you to be that person in the future.

If you wish wish to be smater, begin to learn. If you wish to be talented, start practicing. If you wish to have more friends, get friendlier. You will never become the person you want to be without starting somewhere.

START NOW!
