Well, I have been busy. Two Podcasts, working two jobs and having a family keeps me moving. Over the last couple of years I have noticed a few trends that I am not a fan of that are happening all around me. I experience it in my work, I see it on TV, I hear it on Podcasts and on the radio. I watch movies and things are just being incorporated and no one thinks that anyone is paying attention…but they are wrong.
We see them. We hear what they are doing. We understand why. It would be nice is if everyone focused on doing the right thing instead of doing what they are currently doing for money, power and fame. The only thing you will leave in this world when you die is your legacy. How people remembered you. If you look back on your life now and reflect, are you proud? Do you like who you are? How you treated others?
Why are people selling their souls? They have lost their morality and justify their actions for anything they say or do, no matter what the cost. We are consistently lectured on what we should do, say, eat, drink, dress, look and change everything if we do not fit into the majority of what is acceptable. Well not me.
I know that I am unique. I prefer to walk the opposite direction and definitely cringe when I see people fall into the lemming majority when they cave to peer pressure or what is easy. I have lost or ended friendships over these same reasons. Integrity and Character are everything to me.
In the line of work I have been in for over 20 years now, I have seen more dishonesty, selfishness and people just flat out not keep their word just for money. I have worked for several of those same people and most revel in having the newest phone, an imported brand name car or an designer suit and all with trying to get the most out of a client or employee and cutting as much as possible to pay the employee or mark up the service as much as possible and justifying it as “its just business”.
With all that is going on and all the adversity, I am choosing to follow my passion and work hard to do what I want to do and take care of my family. I try very hard to make the most of my day. If you think that you are alone, remember that you are not. There are a lot of good people that see what I am seeing. So please, Take care of yourself. Work Hard. Honor your word and follow your passion and dreams and most of all do not let things get you down. It’s Spooky out there. Happy Halloween and thank you for supporting my podcasts.
All the Best!
