I can’t find the reset button

I can’t find the reset button.  No going back to fix the mistakes I made, I can only apply my experience going forward, and share it with others.  I am sure I would just make different mistakes, so no guarantee I would achieve greater happiness, plus I’m a pretty happy guy already.

Some say that wisdom is learning from your mistakes, that is incorrect. Wisdom is learning from other people’s mistakes. People could learn a lot from me.

I have noticed happiness is not based on income. On a walk Sunday with a friend who visited Brazil, he commented on the happiness of the poor people there. Happiness then doesn’t rely on the car you drive or the square footage of your home. None of these folks had either.

My own experience in Mexico correlated my friend’s comment, the majority of the people we met there were impoverished financially but their contentment was high and their happiness was contagious.

So what is the thought for us from this?  If I won the lottery it would solve a lot of problems, but it likely would create some its own, maybe worse.  Many rich people die early because of abuses and a lifestyle that comes from wealth.

Perspective is possibly the key, as illustrated below.  This hard working man does amazing photos and uses perspective together with his rich imagination and lots of hard work. Click Here to learn more.

Enjoy, and share – thanks for reading.
