I'm over 30 years old and I was laid off from Alltel, Ikon, and Lockheed Martin. I was never fired. Ikon dropped their in-warehouse technical support, Lockheed Martin lost a major contract, and of course Alltel merged with Verizon and cleared out all of their regional headquarters which I worked at. Now, perhaps I lost those jobs but that's life. In any event, all the stuff I learned allowed me to run an effective online business so I have no complaints whatsoever
You on the other hand just live in the past but all you do is make excuses for yourself for not getting into shape and you get mad when someone lays down the hard facts to you.
I don't get mad at anything. Most people will tell you that. And with me living in the past believe me when you reach my age (if you do) you will wish you had a past like mine. I couldn't imagine how shitty my older years would be if I had nothing to look back on. And believe me my past is something that sustains me today. It is what my past has done for me that makes me money and makes life easier for me even today. It is hard for someone like you or alot of the others on here to realize that what you do in your 20' and 30's is the most important for the rest of your life. The things I get nowadays are because of what I did 20 and 30 years ago. Because I can call a person who I have not talked to or seen in 25+ years and end up doing business with them and rekindle our friendship. It is my past reputation, business success and current demeanor that makes me successful today.
Here is an example. I saw a guy today I have not seen in person since 1993. He got ahold of me through a friend and came to Vegas. He was with another person who had some very interesting piece of engineering he owns. He had recently sold 40% of his company to fund manufacturing and marketing for $28 million. Well after lunch I ended up getting the exclusive rights to represent it for Vegas and Hawaii. I will have contract in hand he said next week after it has been drawn up. I got that because of my past. So guys like you that rag me for living in my past. I am not living in it, I am using it. So, honestly Vince, as much as I rag on you you do have drive to at least not be lazy. But I do question your selection of products or industry cause to tell you the truth it will lead nowhere. But, hey if that is what you like to do then that is the most important. And by the way my physical body is not exactly like it used to be just a year ago. I have rearranged some of it and got alot stronger in the past few months. Still got a huge gut and ass though but it will be gone too.
