Experience lived is the greatest teacher
Everything else is theory and literature 
What works for one will not work for all
What works for you is finding your call

Young wisdom seeks what old wisdom speaks
Old wisdom answers what young wisdom seeks
Young wisdom listens and then does proceed
For old wisdom one day another will need

The world you live in and all experience
Happens exclusive to your own variance
No two are alike, nor are they the same
Never repeated, you play your own game

The hand you are given is meant for you
This is life’s deal, your poker accrue
If holding the hand and you can’t play
Just try to hold and not give away

The other players in your card game
May be feeling, somewhat the same 
In the faces around, all that you see
Are players from life with their history

Some are dirty and cheat out of greed
Some bet high, your fear is in need
Some are quiet and hide it well
Some take risks and you can’t tell

After roaming the faces around the table
The eyes in your head land on your playbill
The more you know the less you think
Experience helps the motive to sink

Learning the game applies the world rules
When playing the cards the dealer gives you
The rare and exceptional Royal player 
Knows how to flush and then say a prayer

From the words of old wisdom
Are the rules that we trust
Apply the experience
Of your Royal flush

The cards in your hands
The deal is your game
Life is learning
It’s never the same

What does it matter if you win or lose
The hand is yours and you get to choose
When you know the house, in you is full
You leave the game to live as you do

“The cards in your hands
The deal is your game
Life is learning
It’s never the same”

"Young wisdom listens when old wisdom speaks..
Old wisdom lives when young wisdom teach" #Opism

I am a deep thinker, lover of thoughts, a prolific writer sharing my words. In sharing I am caring. I am a member of the human race with an appetite to motivate, inspire, empower and provoke thinking. I stand for dignity in humanity. I am compelled to a vision that we are all here for a reason, life is like a deck of cards... “My cards. My deal. Life is learning the game!” #opism What is OPISM? I have come up with this term as my nick name is Op and they are my own quotes representing a moral doctorine belief system. Thus...Op+ism=Opism. #opism My Motto! “Dignity is Free” How I live...Embracing Dignity My professional experience is disbursed across industries from financial services and sales to that of personal and emergency care. As one who has trained and coached, mentored and taught; it has become a passion within to witness and feel joy in the achievement and success of others that I have been associated with. I am a lifelong learner and have created and facilitated various training materials. It is through such experience that I discovered the power of positive feedback in both professional and personal manners. I am self disciplined, accountable, determined, humble, loyal and adaptive; but above all I value my integrity! I am a decent human being. It is with my greatest pleasure to share with others the power of positive words.
