I recently finished my autobiography and published it by FastPencil. Besides my personal story as an immigrant I touched on main historic events in my old country from its establishment to this day and mentioned key figures in her history who earned the admiration of the people. Also, I commented on the social and political conditions as I experienced it.
SUCCESSFUL, MEANINGFUL LIFE
Success to me means not being rich, popular, famous or powerful, it means a lot more.
1. Doing honest work what I like to do for a living. 2. Living where I like to live. 3. Have a house paid in full. 4. Have a couple of hobbies for fun. 5. Being able to see places that interest me. 6. Being able to share with family and friends what is meaningful to them, 7. Have a comfortable retirement.
8.Write a book.
This is all possible if you don't become the victim of circumstances. It requires planning, hard work, common sense, perseverance and to know your limitations. Recognize opportunities and act on them. Recognize when you are lucky and don't become complacent. Many people start out with certainties and end up with doubts. I start out with doubts and end up with certainties.
Search for the truth and recognize and avoid falsehood. Enjoy what the best of mankind can offer in art, music, literature, technology, architecture,. And above all, enjoy Nature! .
