My cat, Zeldu, was a bit off today. We played a bit and then he started attacking my hand - biting and scratching until he drew blood.
My first thought was "what is happening to my cat? Is he in pain? Is something distressing him?". I did not feel angry for a second. I did not get upset although the scratches were quite painful.
I wonder what a wonderful world it would be if we all treated humans like that as well. When someone was aggressive with us, instead of becoming agressive back, or judging their character as flawed and leaving, what could we achieve if we simply thought : "I wonder if they are in pain"
My cat actually was in pain. I managed to give him what he needed and now he's back to his (very sleepy) loving self
Couple of weeks ago Justas Janauskas asked: “Antanai, it’s impressive to see how much you have achieved at your age. Tell me how you see your life in 10 years, and what is the secret of your professional success? “
First of all, thank you Justas for recognising! Much appreciated 🙂
For starters I would like to replace the word “Achieved” to “Experienced”.
To be honest, I achieved almost nothing: I’m not a founder of 9-digit company yet, I haven’t started world-wide movement, I did not win any global competition or award.
BUT I have experienced a lot. Ever since I have started my career in business at the age of 15, my goal was to learn, live and be through happiness. And experiences are exactly what allows you to be in the constant feeling of joy.
🔹That’s why being a teenager I was voluntarily going different tech companies for unpaid internships (Total of 5 internships in Lithuania and US until graduating from high school).
🔹That’s why when living in the countryside I have participated in scary competitions of public speaking/economy/entrepreneurship, challenged students from the best schools in Lithuania and won those competitions. 🔹That’s why I remained helping people and startups (up to date I was mentoring and lecturing at 30+ events), even thou the first company I have raised money for left me on ice.
I have always invested in experience, and this mindset brought me money, opportunities, friends, companies, trips and everything one could ever dream of :) Really, I wish such happiness for everyone! :D
Talking about my future, in 10 years I see myself as a dad and a husband with the main life project of a family on the track:) According to my Impossible list (visit my profile to learn more about wtf is The Impossible List :D) by that time I should already have a solid exit from the startup I’m working with, running my own consulting company on the side, and preparing to start my dream of growing a vineyard 😊
So the open secret of my professional career - always learn, work and do things that brings you best experiences, everything else will come along and you will live a life-long adventure :) (Hopefully that doesn’t sound too cheesy :D) . What were you drivers that led your professional career to where it is now? 😉
I try it again I lost some text about homeless women her name is Indigo Sun she has a degree in psychology and worked about 22 years in it. Now she is sleeping outside in the dark and cold... She do not have a passport neither nor dokuments, she is Italien from southern part of where I come from so she even dose not have the right to stay in this country what a big problem it is...can anybody do something?...
No, its her mistake and she is the one who thinks about it wrong I tell you she is running away from something which haunting her till the very end... A realy tricky thing is the mind it is even if a proper person who is dedicated to some bigger level has this brakedown to overcome, so all is a fars to me nothing changed after a year and still I am beging her to function right and she will lie to me in to my face so sometimes I get angry and tell her the truth about her, terrible job but social and for her the only chance to be sometimes normal and under control....
Next time it will be the same again with her nobody will change this person into good however I still take care of her and try my best doing a good job.... Radical changes occurse to human living beings terrible mistakes happening and nobody will be there what a misery to the human race...
