no matter what you could do, you cannot change even those closest to your heart. unless you have come to an early accord, you cannot actively change the person you care about to fit your needs. that is why it is essential for our parents to nurture us until we start making big decisions with our lives. but in our age, all we can do is show our loved ones the way and it is up to them whether they want to take that path or not. or moreso, the ultimate thing we can do is change ourselves for the better. as we ask people to respect our choices in life, we also have to do the same with theirs. that is why you won’t see me forcing my own set of principles unless someone eagerly asks for them. like they said, “when the student is ready, the teacher appears.”
i am still in constant learning about acceptance. and with acceptance comes an enlightening feeling that will carry on with a positive note as i traverse my future path.
been watching the cavs and pistons play. while my future business partners and i were discussing plans over dinner at bj’s tanforan, the place was filled with nba fans cheering for the teams they were rooting for. besides the place in atherton, i will be purchasing a pad in soma (the new place near the ballpark) so i could also do my real estate business in the area. and i thank my business partners for these.
got this from empyre. the guy is insane!
to succeed in life, succeed in being yourself.
only the man who has found his true self can know himself, find his own best talents and achieve his own high success. we need to live our own lives, and this attitude should be instilled in childhood. with being yourself comes self-control, a mighty source of strength in handling both circumstances and people. beware lest in trying to pile dollar upon dollar you give up too much of yourself, for that man is truly rich who owns his own mind as well as his own fortune.
