Choose Wisely

China, Russia, São Paulo… Same occurs… Act right.

One of the advantages you can get in life is the power to do what you want when you want.

Independence of thought is freedom, doesn’t it?

Many think that they think for themselves… until they are invited to a bar, restaurant, party, or event and don’t know what to do.

When alcohol is available 100% lose their power to act individually.

Their bodies want it. They cannot control their minds, so they are led to do the wrong thing.

I remember many people who went the wrong way of being because of their bad habits.

Once I was in China for business and a bunch of guys went to a beer, then they lost their minds and went to the party… many times they have a girlfriend, wife…

When I was doing business in Russia I saw many men in a club because they love alcohol and childhood more than their wives. You may question, how did I know it? Because I went to see it. I could not believe it was true.

Once in Sao Paulo, I had to go to a meeting alone because my business partner didn’t wake up… that happened many times.

So why do they drink?

It’s vicious.

In retrospect, they invested more money buying drinks, beer, and wine than they invested in their library.

Why do I say library?

Because a book is the most inexpensive way to gain freedom.

When I’m invited to a party, I leave early and I don’t drink, why?

Because I don’t have time to lose. I don’t have an extra body, extra mind, extra energy.

Drinking is a big mistake, and you always lose yourself in the process.

Today is very easy to be unique because people don’t think.

They could have a Ferrari in their garage but they prefer something else.

They have a nice body until they let it slide…

Then they need to run, go to the gym, move their body…

In truth, they are killing themselves slowly.

One part knows and wanna get back…

The other destroys everything.

What’s that fight about?

Vice and virtue and I know many men who are losing their fight, they just don’t wanna know… so they prefer to make fun, and see how others are doing.

They are glad if their so-called friends are doing worse them they are… that’s it.

Look at you first, and do it always.

Think wisely, act right.

Life is good, don’t waste it.
