Someone once asked me: "How come children get what they want and adults don't ?"
I then usually ask, "Well, what's on ‘your' door?"
Lots of children, if they have some form of allowing parents, have pictures of horses on their walls and doors, and pictures of other stuff that they like and want.
If you'd study this a bit....you may find that kids have stuff in their experience that is pasted on their doors and walls. As I write this I have two girlfriends with children who also have horses ! When you go to children's bedrooms, guess what's on their walls? Horses!
So, what's catch? Adults think it's childish and messes up walls and stuff. Therefore, Adults are too "big" to paste their dreams on their own walls, because, why? Well, it's childish and messes up walls!
But it gets even more ironic. Many businesses have story or goal boards in their offices. Car Dealers have them. Movie and TV Producer offices have them. Have them, what? Walls that have stuff they want to happen, pasted up there!
We allow children to paste stuff up on our doors and walls, and successful businesses have their desires, goals and intentions pasted up on their walls and doors, but what about rest of us?
What about rest of real life? What do our families want? What do we as individuals want for our lives and lifestyles.
Are we just supposed to help our employers reach their business goals and desires, of which we may or may not receive direct benefit from?
