waiting in meijers distribution center lansing michigan
i am parked and have arrived like a king on a red carpet. although in my industry of business i am a truck driver in a crammed truck stop parking lot. i am here in beutiful lansing michigan delivering misc frozen foods for the meijers company. i am getting paid so-so on this, so not too happy about that, altough its better then nothing.
ive been thinking a lot about missed opportunities a lot while driving on the road… beause in life we regret the things that we not do much more then the things we do wrong (excluding death and terminal illness, of course). but but BUT.. what if youre like me and there is "just no time" to do the work required of the opportunity? a lot of my friends like that i am well off as a truck driver, and compliment me arrordingly, but few of them would actually do what i do. it's too much of a life commitment. and ive also been thinking about life commitments a lot lately. more obviously, how the hell will i meet and marry a girl if i am working 24/7, is it even possible. as i notice people from all walks of life i see this. yes, it is possible, but you're not going to totally like it. i wont ever find a waitress or saleslady that will magically convert to being my girlfriend, the situational roles we play confine our behaviors to certain social norms. for example, it is normal to meet and date people you meet in schools and night clubs, cafes, bars, etc, but what if you never tap into those venues? i am stuck in this type of situation for the time being. althought, not all hope is entirely lost. i do take wonderful vacations at least twice a year where such opportunities do present themselves, and it is my moral obligation to pick up the hot chicks i meet in las vegas streets if am i to sustain a feasable resemblance of a normal life. now going full circle, i am commited to working when i work and to playing when i play. the problem i and what most people have is the damn gray zone of time management and resource allocation, but the choice is very clear. i know i am committed to the lucrative career of truck driving, logistics, and transportation, at the sleazy expense of my personal life and psychological strength. i have to put the my sword of wits and just roll with the punches and keep on truckong for a better life. It's this rare type of blind faith instilled in me, the fuels the behavioral output of my greatness. i, for one, am ready to roll up my sleeves and work hard when the going gets tough. i dont balk, hesitate, or slow down. id rather take wrong steps and then work towards the right steps, rather then vicariously watch from the sidelines like a sports fan in anticipation, feeling a participant, yet rendering none of the work contributing to the stages of success. missed opportunities are, to my knowledge, always evident. its the difference between looking at the opportunity in a perplexed stare, verses looking with a smiling devilish look WHILE taking massive action, doing whatever is requires. the end more then justifies the means. an accountant making $55,000 a year who has a lot of happy clients, wears a clean suit n tie to work, and is the communities admiration, is NOT better then a simple good 'ol truck driver churning out $65,000 a year. so many people are victims of the illusion of a clean polish and grand splendor. another example is that a new restaurant takes about 3-6 years of painful bleeding negative cashflow, before it recaptures all of its expenses and becomes profitable.
i feel like an a feel spirit wandering in the abyss of our space time continuum perception of reality. the i notice that feelings are a arbitrary irrelevent component, and i confuse myself futher. you see, when you are trucking driving full time, you rarely embark on social conversations that nomalize you to society. you either like me daydream, doodle in your head, or plan stuff to do while not doing anything, or the OPPOSITE. many truck drivers and generally people too, have committed to life of consuming other people's work, with almost never taking time to create something for themselves. yes, im talking about people who watch tv instead of holding a camera to record. people who know every sports team, player, and statistic, but almost never play the game. people who read books of famous people, but never write anything of their own. i feel sorry for these people, having to live a life of being a marketing utility for other leaders to guide. yes many people are stuck as followers and only take guidance from leaders, yet never become a leader of their own life. i mean really. the same way is with their health. being "not sick" is not an acceptable health condition. being fit and athletic is a good way to remain healthy. but i gave on other people a long time ago. i can only help myself and those who come to me. it is always futile to help someone not ready to accept a helping hand.
i do know one thing, though. known causes create known effects. lifting weights creates muscles, eating protein/no carbs builds a great looking body, period. i now try to live my life more prominently on a factual basis. who knows, if i extrapolate this knowledge immensely, i might even get to $50 million dollars in the next 10 years, only space-time will tell. im going to take a nap, unload my truck, and get back to work now. i hope this was enlightening and entertaining, albeit missing pictures and video. thanks for reading.
All The Best,
