I sometimes hear people say: what are you supposed to do? I’ve done everything right, got an education, job, and worked every day and still got laid off and am broke”!
That can happen, we are all at risk for that happening. It happened to me and many people I know. I was fortunate in that I had some good foundations from my parents and others I could fall back on to regroup and achieve some success in my life. No I am not rich or famous, but I am happy and have a purpose of helping others.
I especially want my family to know what I have learned from my parents and other people and experiences that have made me what I am so wrote and dedicated a book to my them. “Connecting Peace, Purpose & Prosperity” is a short memoir highlighting my career and life problems to show them how I overcame issues and went on to success. Again, not wealth and frame, just success like the average guy next door.
Others have gotten a lot out of it too as they respect the wisdom I have collected (not mine!) and enjoyed a peek into the “guy next door’s life”. It is being used in school classrooms, support groups study groups and a few other venues. I am happy to bare and share my life issues if it helps anyone answer the question “What am I supposed to do?” I have no easy answers, just 80 pages of collected common sense that may help someone.
