Why talk about what we want? That is childish. Absurd.
Ofcourse, you are interested in what you want. You are eternally interested in it. But no one else is. The rest of us are just like you; we are interested in what we want.
So the only way on earth to influence other people is to talk about what they want and show them how to get it.
Remember that tomorrow when you are trying to get somebody to do something. If, for example, you dont want your children to smoke, dont preach at them, and dont talk about what you want; but show them that cigarettes may keep them from making the basketball team or winning the hundred-yard dash.
George B. Johnston of Enid, Oklahoma, is the safety coordinator for an engineering company.
One of his responsibilities is to see that employess wear their hard hats whenever they are on the job in the field.
He reported that whenever he came across workers who were not wearing hard hats, he would tell them with a lot of authority of the regulation and that they must comply. As a result he would get sullen acceptance, and often after he left, the workers would remove the hats.
He decided to try a different approach.
The next time he found some of the workers not wearing their hard hat, he asked if the hats were uncomfortable or did not fit properly. Then he reminded the men in a pleasant tone of voice that the hat was designed to protect them from injury and suggested that it always be worn on the job. The result was increased compliance with the regulation with no resentment or emotional upset .
New York is 3 hours ahead of California but it does not mean that California is slow, or that New York is fast. Both are working based on their own “Time Zone.”
Someone is still single. Someone got married and ‘waited’ 10 years before having a child. There is another who had a baby within a year of marriage.
Someone graduated at the age of 22, yet waited 5 years before securing a good job, and there is another who graduated at 27 and secured employment immediately !
Someone became CEO at 25 and died at 50 while another became a CEO at 50 and lived to 90 years. Everyone works based on their ‘TimeZone’,
People can have things worked out only according to their pace. Work in your “time zone”.
Your Colleagues, friends, younger ones might “seem” to go ahead of you. Maybe some might “seem” behind you.
Everyone is in the world running their own race on their own lane in their own time. God has a different plan for everybody. Time is the difference. Obama retires at 55, Trump resumes at 70
Dont envy them or mock them, its their ‘Time Zone’. You are in yours!
Hold on, be strong, and stay true to yourself. All things shall work together for your good.
You are not late … You are not early … You are very much on time !
You are in your Time Zone.
