You might think that the most difficult questions I get come from older folks who have been around a while, you would be wrong. The most difficult questions to answer come from young people, asking “what do I do with my life”, in some sort of way.
The current generation (Millennials) and the one coming next (Generation Z) take a lot of flack. We hear they are lazy, don’t know the value of hard work and never knew a day without a computer. Really, well, hey Boomers and Gen X on that last one, few of us knew a day without a TV right? Sometimes we should think before pointing to the “flaws” of others. I digress though.
The reality is this generation has been born at what should be one of the most exciting times in history. There is more opportunity today than ever before. Businesses are easier to start, educations are easier to obtain and new ways of doing things happen every day. The truth is right now is one of the greatest expansions of entrepreneurship ever seen on the planet.
Yet many of our young people feel lost. TSP is about survival and living a better life. If we don’t preserve families and if we don’t look out for our next generations, who will look out for us when we are old men and women. What of any value can we leave behind if we don’t leave behind young men and women who value both their past and their futures?
Join Me Today As I Discuss…
- Why today really is a great time to be alive
- Why can’t people see how great this time is, what went wrong
- Why do out children and young adults feel lost
- They don’t know where they have come from
- Due to that they don’t know where they are going
- They don’t have a connection to the earth and innate humanity
- They believe the hype from both sides of the dichotomy
- They feel helpless about the hype
- They are not permitted to fail
- They are not challenged to excel
- They are praised for mediocrity and they know it
- They are presented with a single path to “success”
- The path is expensive and they know it often doesn’t fit or doesn’t work
- They are being taught success formulas that are often out dated
- They see their “parents hell” but are pushed to follow that example
- They are then blamed for all of the above
- It is more our fault then theirs and they know it
- Fixing the problem isn’t really that hard
- Address the above at least for your family
- If your family won’t do it, do it for yourself
- Life really is amazing, just make sure to realize that
- Take risks, winners fail before they succeed
- Realize that others will always urge caution to the bold
- The choice is yours, choose your path wisely and don’t hesitate to change paths

Bob Wells Plant of the Week – Arbequina Olive – Adaptable from zone 8 to zone 10
Cold hardy variety that has one of the highest olive production and oil yields. The soil should be well drained. Tree has an upright habit. We recommend covering the tree the first winter if the temperature drops below freezing. Once the tree has been in the ground for a year and is well rooted, it then will begin to withstand the colder temperatures.
The older the tree gets the more, cold hardy it becomes. Oil is sweet, delicate and fragrant with intense fruitiness but low levels of bitterness and spiciness. If you live above zone 8, you can grow it in a container and bring it inside during the winter months. – Order this Plant at Bob Wells Nursery
