If a turkey were to assess the state of the world in early December, they would be forgiven for thinking all is well and that the farmer loves them.
Then Christmas arrives…
If we predict the future through reviewing the past, we will eventually be wrong, very wrong.
All bull markets are followed by a bear market.
All up cycles are followed by a down cycle.
Rather than trying to predict the future through looking at the past, which doesn’t work, perhaps a better strategy is to prepare for any possible future.
Then come January you might be the only turkey and all the food is yours
Change isn’t that hard.
Our lives are filled with paths that we have seduced ourselves into believing are impossible for us to take.
A while ago I encouraged my daughter Zara not to listen to a friend who wanted her to do something that she didn’t feel good about.
When we focus on a past that we don’t like, we are living in a state where we are hoping an imaginary future will heal a non-existent past.
Recently I was in a situation that wasn’t what I wanted, but there wasn’t anything I could do to change it.
Is it to never stop believing?
If you fill up every area of your life with little regard for the quality of what you’re filling it with, there’s not much room left.
“Fortune favours the bold.”
“Look before you leap.”
So, which one is it???
We all make them.
