The Longevity Blueprint

by Ssregina Regina (2019-04-28)

Well as I said money was not growing on The Longevity Blueprint Review our tree in the back yard so I went without a bike, without for many, many years. I never had the opportunity to learn to ride a bike until a good friend named Steven lived in a apartment below me and had a bike, he was getting bored riding by himself and asked me to buy a bike. As you could imagine the fear flooded my body, here I was in my 20's and never had the opportunity to learn to ride a bike, what was I to do? Lie to my friend, tell him I wasn't interested in riding with him and having the chance to hurt his feelings or tell him the truth, well I took the high road. I told him my story and we went together and bought me a bike, we started riding around the neighborhood, then the park and then farther. While this was not an overnight feat, it was accomplished. It was accomplished because I was persistent and knew I wanted to learn to ride a bike and knew I could, also for all the people that could not ride a bike. I did it for them also knowing if I didn't use my abilities to the best of my ability I was being ungrateful and didn't deserve the opportunity. In telling my friend the truth and being persistent I learned to ride a bike and have a very strong friendship with Steven, we taught each other many things and am grateful for the experience.While you may think you have no way of being successful, don't give up. You can be like the 97 percent of people that give up if they the odds are stacked up against them, or you can make a choice. A choice to continue until the end where you are successful and you have built a legacy as one that never gave up, as one who inspired others and gave back to the world in such a positive manner. As the late Confucious said "Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall".
