One day, I hopped into a taxi and took off for the airport. We were
driving in the right lane when suddenly, a black car, jumped out of a
parking space right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed the brakes,
skidded, and missed the other car by just inches! The driver of the
other car whipped his head around and started yelling at us. My taxi
driver just smiled and waved at the guy. I mean, he was really
friendly. So I asked, "Why did you just do that? This guy almost
ruined your car and sent us to the hospital!" This is when my taxi
driver taught me what I now call, 'The Law of the Garbage Truck'
He explained, "Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around
full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of
disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump
it and sometimes they'll dump it on you. NEVER take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on with the routine life."
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. 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.'
