Evolution Of Technology

Evolution Of Technology

In our fast changing society, too many people are afraid that if they are not using the latest technology they will be left in the dust – selling apples on street corners instead of making a killing by standing up with the virtual pack.

In a consumer society like ours, this fear is absurd. The truth is, the longer you hold out on acquiring some new technological whiz-bang product, the better off you will be when you finally do buy the next generation of products. Save your time, worry and aggravation, and let new technology pass you by for awhile. Then, when you are ready, the products will be better, cheaper, easier to use – and you will be fresh and excited about them – not jaded and cynical like the others who feel burnt because last year’s hot software isn’t worth a slice of toast anymore.

Don’t Worry If You Fix It

Don’t Worry If You Fix It

We waste too much time worrying about the things we can’t control. Does my boss like me? Will my company downsize and put me in the the streets? Are terrorists stealing nukes? Will the airplane crash? Are antibiotic resistant disease about to create the Mother of the Plagues? Will Aunt Lila like my gift? On and on it goes…..

You Can’t Buy Someone Else’s Magic

You Can’t Buy Someone Else’s Magic

Money will not solve your problems. It seems that it will, but ask anyone who has made a lot of cash, quick. There’s always some motivational talk show person with a monetary cyclone to offer that promises to make millionaires of us all. They dangle dollars as bit. An inspiring author, a stimulation seminar, or a self help guru to guide you along is usually part of the deal, too. We tell ourselves this person has figured out the mysteries of success, and if we read a book or attend a seminar, some of it will rub off, and all of our problems will suddenly disappear.

Your Fears Are Wrong

Your Fears Are Wrong

We all have fears. Some of these fears are real, but often, they are simply imagined fears that have no real basis. The problem is that often unreal fears stop us from doing the things we really want to do.

Here an example. The average taxpayer is consumed with the fear of an audit. It’s a fear that rules much of our lives, especially around tax time. But do you know your real chance of being audited are only about 9 out of 1000. So, why do we worry so about being audited? Probably because of an even bigger fear – the fear of being audited and the government finding out that we have somehow cheated and we’ll end up in jail. Well, the chances of that happening to you is about 1.6 out of 100,000.

Money Is No Solution All

Money Is No Solution All

Many of us still believe that money will solve all of our problems. We say to ourselves: ‘If I only had the money, I’d start my own business; I’d go back to school and become an art teacher; or be like Mother Teresa, and spend the rest of my life doing something meaningful.’

Anticipation Is Always Worse Than Reality

Anticipation Is Always Worse Than Reality

It never fails. Every time I worry about doing some unpleasant task like confronting someone who owes me money, or firing an employee who has been with me for long time, I realize that thinking about what’s going to happen is always worse than the actual event itself. I usually worry about the confrontation so much that my stomach will ache, and then, when I finally make the call or have the meeting, it’s never as bad as I expected. So now I try to get any potentially stressful situation over as fast as possible. Procrastinating only makes things worse, I know that now. The sooner I get it over with, the better I’ll feel, and the actual event it never as bad as I imagine it will be.

Now my stomach doesn’t hurt when I’ve got bad news to deliver or a confrontation to face. I visualize a positive outcome – what it will be like afterward. People appreciate the honesty and directness of such an approach, and so do I.

Life Is A Smorgasbord

Life Is A Smorgasbord

I used to think that life was something like a fancy restaurant, where you wait politely until someone comes to take you order. I don’t see it that way anymore, I now know life is more like a smorgasbord or an all you can eat salad bar. You can’t wait for opportunities to fall into your lap, you have to get up from the table and grab them yourself. No one is going to wait on you anymore. They’re all too busy tending to their own needs. So speak up, get up, and take what you need to make life worthwhile for you.

———————————————————————————————————————
Your life is the sum result of all the choices you make, both consciously and unconsciously. If you can control the process of choosing, you can take control of all aspects of your life. You can find the freedom that comes from being in charge of yourself. – Robert Foster Bennett

Create Your Own Superhero

Create Your Own Superhero

As a kid I had a lot of heroes: Superman, Batman, Mickey Mantle, and more. But as I grew older, they stopped serving as role models as I became aware of the more human qualities of each hero. Batman and Superman turned out be nothing more than ink, and Mickey Mantle became a full blown alcoholic. It didn’t matter much to me, I long ago stopped reading comic books and was never good at baseball anyway. But I had trouble finding heroes to replace them.

The media always jumps on the shortcomings of anyone who has the remotest chance of becoming one of our heroes. Dig up the dirt, editors tell their reporters, find the skeletons. Maybe none of us can accept that nobody’s perfect. But who ever said heroes are perfect? Every hero, in myth or in real life, has had faults – it’s what has always made them human and someone that we were able to identify with. From Hercules to Dr. Martin Luther King, this is the real lesson of heroes. They teach us that we don’t need to be perfect to demonstrate valor, stamina, and courage in the face of seemingly unbeatable odds.
