Live the life you want (2)

Read "Live the life you want (1)" first before reading this.
The Mexican fisherman asked, "But Senor, how long will all of this take?"
The American replied, "Probably fifteen to twenty years."
"But what then, Senor ?"
The American laughed and said, "That is the best part. When the time was right, you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to public and become very rich. You would make millions!"
"Millions, Senor ? Then What ?"
The American said, "Then you would retire. Move to a small fishing vilage where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take a siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings, where you could sip wine and play guitar with your amigos."
"A ha......that is what I am doing now. I don't need to wait fifteen to twenty years....... "
(from an anonymous source being circulated in the Internet).

Moral of the story : Live the life you want. Unfortunately, most of us don't do that. Instead we conform to the expectations of others in the hope of being accepted, admired, loved and respected. So don't hesitate to choose the life you want, get in touch with the voice in your heart that tells you why you are here, what brings joy to your life and what you can do to enrich the world and yourself.
