Its you VS. the world
Life is all about competition. Competition surrounds every aspect of our days from the moment we struggle to stay asleep until the moment we struggle to stay awake. We all compete with one another on a regular basis; often times without even thinking about it. We vote for winners of entire industries by selecting products we like over ones we don’t like. Each time a product is selected another is not. With almost every decision that is made, somebody wins and somebody loses. When you choose Colgate over Crest, Coke over Pepsi, or Nike over Reebok, the brand in your shopping cart wins, and the brand on the shelf loses. This is retail competition at its finest.
The bright future…
The words, “Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future” was both introduced and directed towards me by a great artist and my best man Brent Estabrook in 2010. The complimentary words were meant as if his association to me was a guarantee for his own bright future. As flattering as it was, those words were not taken lightly. I have come to realize the meaning of that quote had a strong reference to the path of prosperity. Your friends do in fact tell your future. To learn more about how, continue reading and ENJOY!
The daily routine
Whenever we glance at a clock on the wall, the numbers are always the same. We know by way of conditioning and repetition there will always be numbers 1 through 12 along with 3 hands telling us where we exist at any moment in time. The clock is the most basic example of repetition and routine. The clock is a crucial instrument necessary for maintaining order in this world. If one day all the clocks in the world changed routines, and the hands read 14:69 instead of 1:30, our lives would go off the rails as we scrambled to figure out what was happening. Have you ever swiped your finger through a trail of ants? The ants blitz around in circles at high speeds until they realize their fellow ant is still right in front of them. Within seconds, the world is right again, and ant-order is restored. Luckily for us, clocks won’t ever change, and scent trails are pointless.
