There are no guarantees in life.
You are an accident of birth… and if you look critically, then you have “lucked out” by being born in a first world country.
What you choose to do between birth and death is basically all about you.
You can choose to waste all of your opportunities.
I did some of that!
You can accept what fate brings for you.
I did a little of that too!
You can work hard and strive to reach whatever heights you are capable of.
I like to think I do this.
You can bemoan all the things that are wrong in your life.
I have certainly done some of this.
You can focus on the good things in your life.
I like to think that is what I do today.
You can see problems or you can see opportunities.
You can “roll over” or you can battle through.
You can accept your current situation or you can change it.
Whatever you do it won’t be easy… but who said life was supposed to be easy?
"Without hustle, talent will only carry you so far."

I write these articles with the intent of sharing MY experience and knowledge gained during MY life journey. From the 16 year old joining the Royal Navy, through many incarnations, to the grey haired guy who built a business. If you find a nugget here, then I am happy. If the message offends you then I apologise, that was never my intent. I know and recognize there are many people and groups who have a far bigger challenge than I have had and I only wish you well.
