I was speaking to my friend Dwayne the other day, and we were rapping about things - mainly how shit's hitting the fan everywhere, and nowhere more so than Afghanistan.
And he had an interesting take on the whole Biden inspired mess.
"Sometimes you really let it all go to shit so even the liberals understand how damned STUPID Biden and the rest are".
That was the gist.
Now, thats an interesting way of looking at it.
Probably not the "preferred" way for either one of us, but yet, he's right - and I've often thought about this i.e. in life, fitness, and as you can see, international relations which end of the day, they're run by PEOPLE ... you gotta hit rock bottom to realize and go - the only way UP.
In life, it's happened to me multiple times.
Fitness, y'all know all about the phat phock days (admittedly I did more during those days than a lot do during their lifetimes in the JIm) ...
Business - same thing.
A combo of the first two got me moving in the right direction - and only direction - UP - in 2015, and I never looked back.
If you'd asked me then "would you want this, Rahul" - I'd say yes to the good parts - NO to the bad ones, yet its a package, friend.
And I'm happy I went through all the experiences I have thus far - no matter how bad some might be.
Because, learning from the school of hard knocks is the only way to go - at least for me.
You can get advice all you like until the cows come home - sometimes you should too.
But nothing beats doing the thing, and the school of hard knocks.
And the way the world is around us now (although I believe the worst is yet to come by a long shot) - well, no better time to share this!
Rise - up - my friend!
The only way...
