One day I hopped in a taxi and we 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 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 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 could almost ruin your car  and sent us to the hospital!’ 


This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call, ‘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 disappointments.  


As and when  their  garbage piles up, they 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. 


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  

5  %  what you make it. 


95 %  how you take it!
