All things worth tributing to the bro’s out there. Bonus drinks to all who get it.
Greetings, it has been quite a wheil since my last post & for this I apologise.
So your childhood can hold you back.
What do I mean ? Well let me tell you.
When I was younger my father taught me many things, & one of the things that he did teach that I have a problem with today is, ‘If you ask you don’t get’
This was his way of in part trying not to make myself & my siblings into spoilt little kids by asking all the time for things that we wanted. But this was such a big thing for him that my self & one of my siblings feel that we are a little scarred by this in later life.
We tend not to ask for things & expect the best. This is what happened to us as children. We did not say what we wanted for Birthday’s & Christmas for fear of not getting it. We dropped hints, & that seemed to work.
As we have grown & work has been a big part of our life we still both find it hard to ask for work, or pitch for new projects. Stupid I know, but that is how strong this mentality was fed to us. What we do in our chosen professions demands that you ask & pitch for projects that may not be in someone’s mind. We both still find it hard to do that. & I assure you it is not a confidence thing, as we both are very confident & knowledgeable in our fields. It is just we do not ask.
Extremely stupid, because in contrary if you do not ask how the fuck are you supposed to know anything is out there. As much as this was thought to be a good thing in our childhood, the scars of this conditioning has effected both of us.
In contrast my youngest sibling has not had this problem at all. Being the baby, he could ask for anything & most of the time get it. Hence the man is rather a big success in the world of finance, & which in all honesty goes against much of what I believe in. Don’t get me wrong, I do like money, but I do not like how big a gap there is between rich & poor these days.
Returning to my main point, it is quite frightening how certain things that happen early in life tend to stick with you & at times hinder your progress.
So I am trying to change my conditioning by Asking with the view to Getting.
Beware I may be asking you for something soon.
In an ideal world, I would like to send these two goons to non paying customers. Without Delay. In an ideal world.

You know when that “something” comes along that gets your psyched on life juices flowing again? Last weekend I rode with this crew for a good cause. Hauling ass from Vancouver to Seattle.
