The Four Things that Never Come Back

Last Update: January 02, 2016

As I start off the New Year (2016) I remind myself of the Four Things that never come back, namely: The Spoken Word; The Sped Arrow; The Past Life and The Neglected Opportunity.

  • The Spoken Word: Words are powerful and once spoken we cannot take them back. The words we speak can make us or break us. We live in a society where we are privileged to have freedom of speech and our spoken word is taken for granted. Once the words are spoken they will be transmitted into either concrete or abstract concepts and no form of apology will erase the spoken word if we say something that’s not socially acceptable. Keeping this knowledge in mind I pay attention to the spoken word.
  • The Sped Arrow: Sometimes in the heat of a moment one might get enraged; acting on impulse he/she vents in anger and frustrations. That rage can have serious consequences that will negatively impact their lives. In anger, you can do and say things that you will regret for as long as you live. For this reason, I always look before I leap and, I take time to think before I speak.
  • The Past Life: When a life is past that life is gone; it is a life of the past so it will never return to us exactly the same way in the present. It would be difficult to move on from a relationship you saw as good and may find yourself "stuck in the past". However, when you keep yourself stuck in the past you will never find your way in life's path in the present. Let us be reminded that we cannot change our past; the past life is gone and we now live in the present. Let go of the past and move on. As we live in the present the only thing we can do is play the card that we have, and that card is our attitude. Changing our attitude allows us the freedom to grow, develop and to embrace new opportunities, living in the present.
  • The Neglected Opportunity: You probably heard this saying “lightning does not strike twice in the same place”. The same is true when an opportunity is neglected. If an opportunity knocks at my door and I fail to take advantage of that opportunity it means I passed on a chance for success. As I work on taking my WA business to the next level I assure you I will not be saying “If only I had taken advantage of that opportunity”. Instead, I am constantly working to improve, develop and to succeed in my WA business. Success for me is in sight, it’s in my mind, and, I can feel it in my core.
  • How about you? Together, let’s make 2016 our best year ever.
