One day a young man hopped in a taxi and they took off for the airport. They were driving in the right lane when suddenly a black car jumped out of a parking space right in front of them.
The taxi driver slammed on his brakes, skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the other car whipped his head around and started yelling at them.
The taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy. And, I mean, he was really friendly. So he asked, “I think you should have reprimanded that guy! He almost ruined your car and got us sent to the hospital”!
This is when the taxi driver taught this young man what he now call, ‘The Law of The Garbage Truck‘.
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As the garbage piles up, they will need a place to dump it and sometimes they’ll dump it on you.
Don’t take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on. Don’t take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day. Cuz’ life‘s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so… Love the people who treat you right, Pray for the ones who don’t.
Life is 10% what you make it and 90% how you take it!
Have a garbage-free day!
