You’ll Poke Your Eye Out!!! by Dr. Jay LaGuardia
Ever Heard That One?
For this week’s blog I thought it would be a good idea to have a little fun. To point out how ridiculous some of how we look at things have gotten. A while ago I quoted an article about all the things we did as kids that are considered too dangerous now.
I found this article quite humorous and painfully true. For those of you who are over 30, you will read this and laugh out loud. You will quickly realize that if raised in today’s world you would have missed out on many of these endearing memories below. Our parents would have been publicly chastised or worse, arrested for neglect. Yet, times were simple and life wasn’t seen from such a fatalistic point of view.
For those of you who are younger than 30, eat your heart out. See what you missed out on? I challenge you to run around your yard today with a stick. It is not likely you’ll poke out your eye. . . do you know anyone who ever poked their eye out?
We wonder why people are risk averse. We have raised a generation of kids who are so cautious and live in fear of everything. Take some risks once in a while. It will feel invigorating.
Originally from The Organic Prepper: With all of the ridiculous new regulations, coddling, and societal mores that seem to be the norm these days, it’s a miracle those of us over 30 survived our childhoods.
Here’s the problem with all of this babying: It creates a society of weenies.
10 Things We Used To Do As Kids…
Below, you’ll find 10 childhood activities no one used to consider “extreme” or illegal… but could get some parents thrown in jail in some places today:
1. Riding in the back of an open pickup truck with a bunch of other kids.
2. Leaving the house after breakfast and not returning until the streetlights came on, at which point you raced home ASAP so you didn’t get in trouble.
3. Eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches in the school cafeteria.
4. Riding your bike without a helmet.
5. Riding your bike with a buddy on the handlebars, and neither of you wearing helmets.
6. Drinking water from the hose in the yard.
7. Swimming in creeks, rivers, ponds, and lakes (or what they now call *cough* “wild swimming”).
8. Climbing trees (one park cut the lower branches from a tree on the playground in case some stalwart child dared to climb them).
9. Having snowball fights (and accidentally hitting someone you shouldn’t).
10. Sledding without enough protective equipment to play a game in the NFL…
Sometimes We Need To Just Live A Little
Of course we understand that many of these things are not done anymore, because its not worth the risk. One of the things we believe in here at TriplePLife though, is sometimes you have to really live life, in order to fully appreciate it. Swimming in the ocean has risks, undertows, sharks, jellyfish, riptides, barracuda, just to name a few, but the difference between diving face first into an oncoming wave is so much more exhilarating than jumping into the local community pool. We don’t want our kids to get hurt, but sometimes the risk is worth the deeper lesson, and experience they might learn…and feel.
A Great Poem To Remember
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of the intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the beauty in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that one life has breathed easier because you lived here. This is to have succeeded.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Attend The GPS To Success Summit November 14th, 2020
One of the best ways to work through, and remove all the limiting beliefs in your life, is to attend the upcoming GPS To Success Event.
On November 14th, Dr. Jay LaGuardia, Dr. Eddie Hall, and myself will be spending an entire Saturday at the upcoming GPS To Success Summit sharing some of the best knowledge we have garnered from our combined 50 Plus Years of Business Success!
Chiropractors, Business Owners, and More who attended last year were able to get amazing results applying the knowledge we shared. This year’s event is already half full, and time is running out to take advantage of our Early Bird Discount. Dr. Jay has taken the most powerful, innovative, proven success strategies the world has ever seen, and worked some of the most important stuff into a one day summit for the ages!
We have combined the knowledge of billionaires, multi-millionaires, great artists, athletes, business owners, healers, and so much more into a system of success so brilliant and simple to follow, literally anyone with the willingness to do the work, and apply the information, can improve every aspect of their life. If you are looking to finish 2020 strong, and set yourself up for even greater success in 2021, don’t miss this once a year event. Some of the most brilliant people in the chiropractic profession, and small business community will be there. Become a part of a mentor group that is quite literally changing the world for the better.
Few technologies have transformed and made our lives easier, as much as GPS has.
Imagine if any of us could just use a GPS…like the one in our cars, or phones, plug in the address to the life we have always dreamed of, and then we would receive step by step instructions of how to get that life? Would we be smart enough and disciplined enough to follow the instructions?
The information necessary to build a better business, and life is shared through TriplePLife, Dr. Jay, the PowerPassionProsperity Podcast, every day. Once a year, we spend an entire Saturday working with a small group of people to help them to learn exactly what they need to do, in order to get everything they have ever wanted out of their business and life, we hope to see you there.
Here’s to Empowering your dreams, Igniting Your Passion, and Accelerating Your Prosperity!
