Something happened not long ago that should have been a wake-up call to just about everyone in the world.
Toys (backwards) R Us is closing its doors as one of the most successful toy companies in history.
At first glance, you might think to yourself and say how in the world did a company that lasted so long and had an endless supply of customers collapse so suddenly?
I mean kids still like bikes and trains, and video games, right? Sure they do, in fact, kids are probably more obsessed with toys and gadgets than ever before.
So why the downfall? Well, Ima make this short because I want us to talk about this more throughout the week. The reason why they fell, is the same reason why many people feel stuck in their lives.
It ultimately comes down to a lack of practicality and self-awareness.
In life, whether you’re advancing or not, you will always keep moving forward. Time is a constant for all of us. If you’re expecting the things that got you to where you are now to work in taking you to where you wanna go, well then you might be a bit disappointed.
Kinda like a certain toy company.
