Deep Thoughts Part 2

The only way to succeed is to surround yourself with like minded people. Dreams are goals with wings. And dreams can be accomplished with a plan – objectives, strategies and tactics. It’s not like The Secret where you wish for a dream and it comes to you. You have to go out and get it. Take action.

Some millennials are cocky. There’s a sweeping generalization if I have ever heard one. But some boomers are cocky too. I find that there is a discernible difference between cocky and confident. Cocky is conceited or arrogant, especially in a bold or impudent way.
Confidence is a feeling of self assurance arising from one’s appreciation of one’s own abilities or qualities.

Confidence is better than cockiness

So there are 3 things that I am afraid of.

  1. Airplanes
  2. Snakes
  3. My health

So we can forget about snakes, not worth discussing. I have a plan to get on an airplane for the first time in over 25 years. I will fly Air Canada to Toronto with a pilot who is dead heading to Pearson International Airport. That way, if both the pilot and co-pilot die simultaneously, the pilot sitting with me could fly the plane.

In terms of health, I am taking 4 steps

  1. 10,000 steps per day
  2. 2 – 3 litres of water per day
  3. Reduce sugar dramatically
  4. Smaller portions

Helping others is my personal mission statement. And helping others should be yours as well. If you are lucky enough to have a roof over your head, food on the table and family / friends, then help others. Especially the homeless at this time of year. I grew up in the West Island of Montreal and discovered that there are 200 homeless youths; which was surprising considering the fact that the area is financially sound. But there is an organization committed to building a homeless shelter.

Ricochet’s mission is to create housing resources for young people between the ages of 18 and 35 who are experiencing residential instability in the West island.
