We talked before about having motivation and building up knowledge, and actually building wealth, gaining protection.
Sometimes its what you actually do that makes a difference.
Or what you do not do.
We take shortcuts in life, sometimes due to circumstances. We put ourselves in more risks for convenience. Most of the time it turned out ok but we ignore the tail risk. These are low probability events and they usually have grave consequences.
That’s why we make sure we are adequately covered.
I been seeing my sinseh for my psoriasis. He helps people with skin problems like that and manages to cure almost all of them except me.
But this story is not about me.
He specialize in using qigong to cure nerve issues that people suffer from, or leg pains. Folks from US that cannot stop shaking and vibrating due to nerve issues came here and was able to resolve.
This recent patient is a 23 years old lady. She was on tour with family in Malaysia. She was part of an accident where she got thrown out of the vehicle. What happens is that she suffered from paralysis from the waist down.
The damage is so bad that at night the pain was insufferable and that the body is not strong enough to pass motion.
You would think that insurance would have help covered.
Alas, they have a problem securing a payout because when the accident happen 6 people were in the car.
What we learn from this is perhaps we will not always be adequately be equipped with the consequences that help us evaluate how we plan things.
We take shortcuts in life, it is just that sometimes the results we have to live with.
Be safe everyone.
