There will be few warriors surviving long enough to tell their motivational stories how to become a warrior. I can. You can! Uncle, chun bo? There are more monks than warriors hiding quietly at every corners of the large corporation smiling, cruising and waiting for time up to FIRE or officially retired with more savings. The rest of them in large corporation are just farmers and many of them are hoping for re-employment at 62 and work till 67. You are not warrior? Don't bang your head against the wall as warriors by nature is fewer in number. But, you can still choose to become monk as there is no limit in number by nature. How about staying on as farmer? Most farmers will retire unappreciated and you don't mind that. Can lah! Your life! You decide! :-) Same same as warrior, monk and farmer. Read? Horse, Cow, and Pig (Re-posted)
