One of my all time heroes and a person I have often gained inspiration from is my fellow Englishman (also similarly of Irish ancestry) John Lennon. I have said to myself and others many times the saying “Everything will be OK in end, if it’s not OK then it’s not the end” without knowing until today that it was John Lennon that first said it.
The reason why I like this quote so much is because I know from my own experience that it’s true; when I was a homeless teen and I was scared of what the future might bring my life was not OK. That episode had not ended though and when it inevitably did then things were more than OK.
A few years later when I was struggling with my first business and I was going through some personal difficulties; when I was in the middle of it all it felt overwhelming and depressing but it was not the end. Eventually I changed my ideas, restructured everything and started again and this time it all came good in the end.
The story of my life and most people’s lives is made up of chapters or episodes that make up our entire life story. I believe that we don’t have to wait for the very end for everything to be OK just the end of the episode. This could be a few weeks or a few years but the great thing is we have some control over it.
If we are not happy with how things are going we can speed up the ending to the latest chapter of our life. We can prolong our misery (as most people do) by sitting back and accepting “this is just life” OR today we can start cutting out the people who are no good for us, find a better job with a nicer boss, start a new business or venture, move to a nicer place/town/city/country.
Life is short but you are in control, you might make some bad decisions along the way and that’s OK as long as you learn and adapt but most importantly remember: Everything will be OK in end and if it’s not OK then it’s not the end!
