Getting old is a shock, as is going from indestructible, to vulnerable, to fragile.
Confronting one’s own mortality, puts you in denial first, and then rearranges your entire life’s priorities to just stay alive.
Some adjust to the inevitable, some become despondent, some make realistic or unrealistic plans, and some just give up and die.
I firmly planted my feet in midair.
I went to my urologist. He said I could go at any time. I said I have a prostate problem. He said “To pee or not to pee that is the question.”
I went to my proctologist. He said I have hemorrhoids. I asked him “Why don’t they call them asteroids?
I went to my psychiatrist. I said I have suicidal tendencies. She said, “From now on you have to pay in advance.”
Implementation is everything, and objectives mean nothing unless they are transformed into action. Your fortune, however difficult to achieve, is there. The trick is to recognize it. It comes sporadically and in forms disguised. But most of all, it comes to you in opportunities that are few and far between, sandwiched within an infinity of plausible futures. We look at the chance and see only the present. You must observe the opportunity and see the seeds of the future. If you are to succeed, waiting for ideal conditions or a situation is rarely an option. Excellent opportunities never last long and usually require a change in your thinking and actions. Often, you have just one chance, and if you do not take advantage of that moment in time, the possibility is forever lost. I think that the world is bruised and bleeding, but we have to refuse to capitulate to the aggressive apathy and incompetence that permeates our society. Instead, we have to take action and persevere in making our own luck and healing civilization. Satoru
Luck is a spontaneous mutation showing up randomly. It hangs around according to whim and is a pompous theoretical construct of improbability. We are only as lucky as we think we are. To find luck you have to look for it, perhaps aggressively. Luck may not be a genuine concept of reality in this world. But like faith and hope luck exists in our minds. Some believe, especially if they’re optimistic, that they are lucky and that produces a luckier individual. Perhaps you make your own luck when you are looking for it. The chips fall where they may unpredicted and with spontaneity. There is a brilliant randomness of everyday life. Luck is a big surprise that should make you laugh. Make your own Luck. My definition of luck is preparation meeting opportunity. Satoru
Most live on lonely islands, of quiet desperation, while continually repeating the same actions, yet hoping to improve their existence. They fear the newness, that even slight modifications encompass, stopping them from advancing or growing. One of the foundations for success is the adaption of new times and making incremental or significant transformations in your actions. Obviously, if you keep doing the same thing and getting the same results, you have to make changes. But most people are comfortable in their living. It’s like putting your tongue in the cavity. There’s some assurance that it is there and one day you will see a dentist. Surprise! The dentist may be too busy. You may never get to see the dentist and your tooth decays. But you only have one chance and that was it. So it is with life. Life is not a dress rehearsal and time is not on your side. Start now to transform or you will have already written the last sentence of your life story. Satoru
All fruits and vegetables can be loaded with pesticides and herbicides and need to be washed before eating. Your produce is handled many times by many people before you buy it. It is vital to remove the pesticide residue and bacteria residue from the produce. Remember to wash your hands during the preparation process, or you can easily re-contaminate anything you touch. Whether it is just white, red, or Apple Cider, Vinegar kills cancer cells. It is also anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-septic and kills 98% of all germs. A shake of baking soda also helps break down the anti-water barrier. Sprinkle some baking soda and vinegar on the produce, add some water, and let it soak for a while. Rinse with clean cold water. The only thing that kills more germs is Bleach, which kills 99% of all Germs. But you can’t eat or drink Bleach. You can’t rub it on your skin or consume it daily. Vinegar, in general, has been used as an anti-septic and for medicinal purposes for at least 10,000 years. Also, wash and wipe clean the tops of your food cans before you open them. Satoru
