You guys all remember the Talking Heads song “Once in a lifetime” 🎵
And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife
And you may ask yourself, "Well, how did I get here?"
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down
Letting the days go by, water flowing underground
Into the blue again, after the money's gone
Once in a lifetime, water flowing underground
And you may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"
And you may ask yourself, "Where is that large automobile?"
And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful house"
And you may tell yourself, "This is not my beautiful wife"
The song talks about futility and lack of control. Forces around you keep you moving in a direction without you even knowing it….Sometimes maybe good…sometimes…maybe shit !!
These last few years in the car business..lotta people ended up behind the wheel of large automobiles, in a beautiful house, with a beautiful wife. Things were irrationally easy.
Seems like we are headed in an entirely new direction now with all the doom and gloom that surrounds us in the mainstream media. Everywhere we turn we hear of a new emerging crisis
Well, It’s not futile and you do have control. You don’t have to let the Fake News steer things for you. Many of you have already lived through way worse than what is coming these next few years
If you’re reading this now you have survived
- Black Monday in 1987
- 2007/2009 Great Recession
- And probably a pile of personal crisis and tragedy
You’re going to survive these next challenges as well 🙌🏽
Marcus Aurelius wrote “That all of this has happened before. And will happen again-the same plot from beginning to end, the identical staging”
The odds of a good outcome are in your favor.
The best way to do better than just survive is to expand your network. The single largest limiting factor in success and survival is almost always not knowing enough about the right people
