If you recently had a problem with the front door of your business it was because of a known problem. You probably have worn out hinges, Hi I am Sally owner of Sally's Pizza best pizza in town. I got stuck with a problem last winter. Usually, my front doors work fine and people are happy to swing them passing in and out of the store. Some hungry for pizza, some deliver the pizza to the customers. Some even eat the pizza on their way out of the store as they push and swing the door open.
I learned my lesson through my mistakes, every time that the story goes on. I wake up to a new problem and some don't have solutions, but this problem was, in particular, very annoying. What it has to do with continuous hinges you ask? Well.
It was a very quiet morning on the second of January of the beginning of 2020, some people still sleep as 8 am approaches, some people rush their minds up to their targets, some just live to breathe and find all the little things they need to survive. But back to me, here I was in front of my store staring at was unfolding in front of me, you see I was exposed to things way too early in my life to my view. And because of my early exposure which I wasn't mature enough to handle I am definitely able to say I have made some mistakes. Mistakes which are a part of me, which sadly make me who I am.
So somethings aren't good to be discovered early, but nature is such that there is a paradox, so in the same world at the same time other rules of nature exist. Early exposure to certain information, can save you time, it might save your career, it might save your life. I wasn't aware of the fact that my hinges are rusty and they are so worn out that they can be snapped with significant ease. "They snapped them.." I thought.
I had a break-in, now it's time to figure it out, what I should have done in the first place. How I should have managed my life and time or maybe paying to much attention to the spiritual rather than the physical things which are around, like the problems which are waiting to be solved at the hands of a procrastinator? All of those things come to mind when you are robbed, it is only when bad things happen we are able to beat ourselves up and rethink the way we prepare ahead. But hear this, I am warning you this is a repetitive pattern only broken by passing the message on and on.
"Prepare better, install stronger hinges in fact maybe even continuous hinges." said the guy from the local lock company. I am always local, I make pizza for people, me and continuous hinges have more differences than locksmith and pizza but that day that locksmith was in fact lucky, he got a very nice slice of pizza and a pop too!
He spent extra time to educate me about the types of hinges and continuous hinges and how they work and carry heavy doors. Continuous hinges last long and carry heavier doors and all that information was among the words the locksmith guy was saying.. Very technical and complicated.
The burglars didn't take much, just my pride. My trust in people, but hey not all people. I don't trust thieves anymore, I know what you will say. I guess it has to happen to some, and they learn, not that robberies exist but they learn to be more resilient or prepared for next time, so I guess there needs to be the last time as well. Sad reality. We make it happy. Using knowledge, problem solving and trust. Those who don't carry that message will be out thanks to CCTV, continuous hinges and local locksmiths I trust to install them.
And, when I am done crying about the pains of life as I learn my lessons, what doesn't kill me, in fact, makes me more alive and stronger. Like continuous hinges, evolved over time to be strongest ever!"
This is the last memo, from the series of memos of EA Locksmith on Weebly.com
Nothing has changed, except the puzzle box it knows a lot more. Same human limitations and time boundaries. No matter how much I try I can't seem to shake off the stress which is preventing me from functioning. Thought control is by the strong minded but who becomes a strong minded on his own? The one who appreciates the practice.
As 2018 begins we understand that we are in the new era and it's still too early to tell which way humanity is going. What sure is that at the moment humanity is more concerned about anything else but what's important, it is concerned about self. In fact there is so much noise that it is hard to really figure which way it is going. Kind of like a developing rolling story, which is developing for quite some time now.
Since then, I learned that friends are only those who can offend you and still call you back. I realized that the little things are the big things and the more I spend time on those little things which can make a big difference in ones life.
Since then, everything is different. Perception is different, it changes as you develop a sense of being which some cannot develop in time because their own being was shut due to trauma.
I learned that one's perception of the world can be devastating for another. Actually I learned that a while ago. Back when being yourself was simply not an option.
This year I learned how strong a woman can be, going through different stages and challenges of painful recovery. Just to become the best mom in the world. Sometimes the same person you are angry with can make you feel completely differently the next day if only given the chance.
Since then I learned to block the noise, many try to mess with you. Many try to get your attention and distract you from what really matters, blocking distractions can be painful to some but it is the only way to successfully navigate you through your day. Since then everything is different, it is not better or worse, it is the present the occuring reality which we are all part of.
Our minds have many tasks, no wonder we get locked out or lose our keys in times. Over time I started to believe that there is no solution to our minds problems ability to stay connected and pay complete attention as things slip through our hands without control. Only trust yields results and often require in a locksmith situation. Recently when conversing with one of my customers in Waterloo I realized that she couldn't find me when searching the term "Locksmith Waterloo"; "too many distractions" she said and smiled as I read her thought. She knew the value of trust right there and then, she could read it from my eyes.
Since then, I learned not to focus on things like money; not because money is not important but only the result. Focusing on the result rather than the process is a big mistake in my opinion and as soon as I have realized it my life has changed.
You might own a business, the business might gone through changes. You might have gone through a rough path. As a locksmith in Waterloo and the area the business is a great challenge, many setbacks and difficulties to overcome. Supply and demand fluctuate constantly. You might be locked out in Waterloo and not able to easily find a reliable locksmith yet you could be located elsewhere and there are too many locksmiths available. There is always some sort of imbalance but somewhere in the middle all of this evens out as the magnitude shifts course. All the sudden the phones are ringing non-stop and you won't see me for another 6 months. No matter how turbulent your business is remember that learning to fly in rough turbulence is awakening and awakening is good because you have survived.
No predictions, you know when you play chess. How many moves ahead you can actually predict or calculate, think about it like a game within a game. Play chess with a friend and think as many moves ahead potential on the board as possible and only then make a decision. For some brains this type of exercise can be excruciatingly painful. I tried it many times in the past, perhaps some more of these visions wouldn't hurt. It's because your opponents are things like time, distractions, life facts and physical boundaries that you are bound by. So you actually have to navigate this way in order to make it through and even as you fall on your falls you still manage to push the king into a corner and pull a draw in hopes to recover the next game.
This type of thinking can help you avoid a lockout in Waterloo or make a smart decision when hiring a local locksmith in Waterloo after doing your research.
As each new day takes shape, you can be in charge of what happens to you and how it affects others. No matter what it is that you learned since then, make sure that its positive.
