Life like a salmon…. – Nov 2004

Dear Sir,

After having read your site I like to state that my life as a Christian and an entrepreneur is like a salmon, it’s a long tough way, always going upstream, with steep waterfalls and hungry bears. I often think I have to rely on my own strength. I keep on swimming, even when I should have taken a rest. The responsibility of being an entrepreneur with 10 employees is a heavy load. As a result some waterfalls depress and when I am tired some bears hit me (but so far have not eaten me). Sometimes they hit me so hard that I fall down few meters. Then at that place I have to rest. Many fish come downstream and invite me to go down with them.

It is tempting, they swim so easily. Still, so far, all times, I remain where I am. Them, gradually I recover and once I am fully healed I am a strong healthy salmon, who does what a healthy salmon has to do… go up, back to the source of his life.

Yours sincerely,
Karel ****** – The Netherlands
