Have you had a chance to observe a bird locked in the cage? At first he tries to escape, but over time he gets used to it and becomes dependent on the handler. I know people like that. Even with talent and ideas they would rather stay inside an invisible bubble and are content with anything. How about beating their wings?
It is important to dream. It may be that some projects never come true, but do not regret not having tried. The professional market is a stage for creating opportunities, as long as honesty is part of the script. Stories of overcoming occur all the time and may be closer than you think.
A recent survey as related by the international media shows that more than 58,000 Japanese have or have already surpassed 100 years of life. Many are still active in providing community service or in the formal workplace (some are businessmen). Imagine how many things they have seen and heard.
Growing in life also involves professional growth, but this attitude goes beyond the sum of numbers on the bank statement. It involves the desire to move on and make each day a learning experience. Financial and material resources are merely an outgrowth.
Stop whining. Your restlessness will not help at all! Get up now and do something positive for you and for the people around you. Your career will thank you. I will finish this thought with an interesting recommendation written about three thousand years ago: “Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:30-31, Holy Bible.
