"The School Of Hard Knocks” is the 1st in my Tom's Autumn Rambles series of original copyright press releases sent from my happy home in the sunny south of Portugal

THE SCHOOL OF HARD KNOCKS

In my early teens, my form teacher at school, exasperated beyond reason by my notoriously errant behaviour, prophetically declared to me, “One night you'll be taken down a dark lane and given a good beating!” He would soon be proved right … both actually and figuratively.

I never sought sense. Neither indeed wisdom. The crumbs of each which have come my way were delivered rather than ordered. Many by way of blows.

Life's daily barrage of straight lefts taught me caution and respect, the hooks and crosses tolerance. Humility came courtesy of the jarring uppercut of failure, with it I learned to take life on the chin.

And then there were the body blows. The sickening mid-riff thuds of family deaths, loved ones gone, no redemption.

Yet I learned to hang on when hurt, bob and weave when pressured, deliver a low blow when desperate. I was saved by the bell more often than I deserved but was carried unconscious from the ring too.

At those times I was brought back from the edge, revived and restored by improbable allies. Friends and colleagues oft neglected, mysterious strangers, angels of mercy. And the simple hand of friendship proffered by well-wishers more worthy by far than I.

So I'll be in the ring again today ... and tomorrow … and the day after. You see I have an obligation to my schools. Both the one of my teen years and the other which no-one applies to attend but where all are accepted and awarded lifetime scholarships. In this latter school pupils get kicked around a lot, get sense knocked into them. Graduation may take place down a dark lane.

But it's the best school in the world. It's the school of hard knocks!

 

I am Tom Riach. I live and write in the sunny south of Portugal.

 

For many years I have run my WAKE UP LEISURE AND LEARNING BREAK (click on) where I talk of success and of creating serious wealth. Or send for my MASTERING THE ART OF MAKING MONEY Amazon best-seller, it's packed with my secrets of success and exact details of how I earned a fortune as a Super Achiever. Click the image below.

ABOUT JOSEPH TOM RIACH

It took me some years to establish myself in business but I believe that in life only the most resolute of tryers will prevail and after several years of a bank account in a permanent state of cardiac arrest my perseverance began to pay!

I became a successful Business Consultant, Investment Adviser and award-winning Salesperson and Marketing Professional and I coined the term 'Creative Solutions' to describe my work in devising and implementing innovative approaches to situations in business, commerce and industry (some call it touble-shooting). From my successes I grew my own group of small companies.

By later years I had realised that sheer sweat and toil did not represent the smartest or swiftest routes to wealth. Entrepreneurs, I observed, had always existed able to create fortunes from little apparent effort and I became increasingly fascinated by this phenomenon. I set out to emulate this approach and such was my success that by 1996 I could 'retire' at an early age to the tranquility and calm of South West France. I later moved on to Southern Portugal.

CONTACT ME – I'll be thrilled to hear from you!

The life of which you dream is HERE within your grasp!
