In life and nature there is one thing that continually occurs and that is change. Frustrated Network Marketer–The Wisdom Of Jim Rohn shines in his book “The Seasons Of Life” as he uses events in nature and everyday life to illustrate his point.
The tide comes in and then recedes; the sun rises, giving light, and then sets, bringing darkness. Drought plagues the farm field of the world, followed by rain in abundance. On this day, we swelter under the intense heat of the August sun, and soon we clothe ourselves against the penetrating cold of the mid-winter storm. Prosperity brings her abundant opportunity and rewards, but will withdraw at a future time when confronted by a receding business climate. The smile gives way to the tear, as does the joy to the sorrow and the jubilation to the tragedy. Close friends become hated enemies. The guns and bloodshed of war are followed by the stillness of a temporary peace.
For each of us existing on this spinning Blue-white sphere called earth, confidence is replaced, with the passage of time, by doubt; patience is replaced by stress; expectancy by boredom; and achievement by disillusionment.
As the wheel of life continues its constant turn, all human emotions appear, disappear, and appear once again. We sit in amazement in the role of spectators, as a generation living in morality becomes an immoral generation, giving us cause to predict the end of the world, as did our forefathers when confronted by the same dilemma generations before.
The confrontations, disappointments and challenges of life are treated by each generation as though they are the first to experience such events, when in fact pre-Christian years saw the same occurrences both appear and dissolve.
For all of us, the only constant factor in life is our feelings and attitudes towards life. A major challenge faced by us all is that we learn to experience the changing of life’s cycles without being changed by them. To make a constant and conscious effort to improve ourselves in the face of changing circumstances is to assure a tolerance for the winters of life’s events, and to permit ourselves the full enjoyment of the blessings of life’s harvest come the autumn. – Jim Rohn
Our feeling and attitude toward life is the only constant we have so it is up to us on how we deal with the changes we experience. There is a space between an event and how we will respond to the event that will determine a positive or negative outcome. The choice is ours and ours alone to bare. Frustrated Network Marketer–The Wisdom Of Jim Rohn comes from personal experiences that he was able to leave us in his writings and recorded seminars. These experiences are a valuable asset which we can apply to our lives and improve so we will be able to tolerate the winters to come.
