|RANDOM THOUGHTS OF A WRITER|
"You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink."
I don't know where or who the quote above originated from, but it's definitely true.
And for the life of me I don't know why I still get disappointed when someone doesn't follow my guidance and advice, and as always, the inevitable result will happen. I am hopeful in my fifties I will be able to look at situations and analyze them clinically, without any emotions. For me, it's harder when children are involved and decisions are being made by their parents with a one-sided mindset.
I will say this: after 47 years, I've realized why only few excel and some stay average. Not that there's anything wrong with average, but you shouldn't go around living life as if you were cheated out of something, when all you wanted to do was average shit. There's a reason why some people excel at life, they're doing something different from the crowd with an extra-extraordinary mindset. And those are the basic rules of success, or failure.
