Life is a constant game of checks and balances, as well as perceptions, which vary depending on our life experience.
This BLOG is a RANT, and as such can be perceived by some as negative, feeding back into the endless debate over whether the glass is half full or half empty.
I have suggested to those who are offended, mostly because they see themselves in my comments, that they are welcome to abstain from reading it, as THEIR negativity is not welcome.
There are many followers however who view it as a sanity check – their own – in a world gone mad.
In my daily life I speak to and meet an extraordinary cross section of the population, every colour, shape, size and walk of life. From Billionaires to shop clerks and everything in between. In business I meet extremely well educated individuals from every corner of the globe, and in doing so, I find myself in every corner of the city as well meeting with people, so it is NOT the view from an armchair, but of living life.
You might try it sometime.
If there is one thing that I have learned, it is that EVERYONE has something to share.
From the Doorman who speaks 5 languages fluently, is dressed in designer clothes straight from the pages of GQ, is worth millions, and holidays in St Bart’s and Japan.
The coffee stall owner in a London Street Market who is now worth millions, but arrived penniless.
The Philippino Engineer whose father risked his life so his children could come to Canada for an education and a better life.
The list is endless. The difference is that I actually SPEAK with people, hear their stories, look into their hearts and their eyes.
Try meeting some of them, they are all extraordinary in their own way.
Happy New Year!!
