Things in life will happen! Regardless! The idea is to be ready for them and control the way they dictate our emotions and our choices once they happen. So motivation is one thing but education to life is another. Here’s a story.
Two Salesmen selling shoes travel to Africa. One arrives earlier then the other. He calls back and tells his company “Oh man! Your not gonna believe this…NONE of these fine folks believe in shoes. Matter of fact NONE of them have any on! I’ll be returning soon…..” They very next day the second companies shoe salesmen arrives and calls the company immediately! “YOUR NOT GONNA BELIEVE THIS! NONE OF THESE FINE FOLKS BELIEVE IN SHOES AND NONE ARE WEARING THEM! SEND ME ALL YOU GOT CAUSE THEY NEED THEM!..”
Obviously we can see what this story was all about. Both having the knowledge of what they are capable of doing. (Selling shoes) But only one seeing the problem for opportunity. Have the motivation and when the problems come. Use your education to solve the problem and find your opportunity.
“Never To Old To Dream”
Yesterday as I was driving in town around 10 in the morning. Inside the car I was listening to a christian station called “K-love” I was hearing Chris Tomlins: Hallelujah. The story of Jesus and his birth.(Away in the manger redux) Getting to my house I seen a man standing on the side walk looking at a new vehicle at our local dealerships. This man looked like a hardworking man with work boots and ruff pants. He was wearing a hat covered with a hoodie because it was cold outside. He looked Hispanic late 40’s. He stood glaring for 10 seconds then put his head down and continued to walk.
Getting home, hearing the song, seeing him inspired me to these thoughts and ideas. In the song of “Away in the Manger” It talks about the three wise kings searching and finding the baby Jesus. Did you know that the Kings didn’t actually find Jesus of Nazareth until he was a child? Remember the bible talks about the a king that had ordered to kill all babies during the time of Jesus’s arrival. The 3 wisemen maybe followed the star to find Jesus but it wasn’t like a stroll down the park. It was years.
You have to understand that like this man I seen standing glaring at a possible dream and the persistence of the Kings(3 wise-men) we hear about were of both in the same state of mind. You can too! Like these men, no matter what age your at. You gotta believe its there. You gotta physically find it. You gotta focus and then work to achieve it. Dream! Its the only way you escape reality to see whats out there for YOU.
Would you try to sharpen your kitchen blade with a piece of wood outside? NO! Right!? You want something that is better or of the same material to help sharpen your blade.
A friend of mine named Kimberly Randle told me this. She expressed that the fact we got along so well, encouraging each other and motivating each other was because we were of the same kind. I believe as people growing we need to build on those types of relationships. I agree with her 100%! If your around the people that pull all the negative things in the world chances are your views will be the same. I encourage if you want success be around those who found it and are looking for it.
I try and create captions that will spark the interests of readers to help engage actions. Last year as I was talking to a business associate of mine we were documenting parts of my life. I said something I seen today that really impacted me and I want to share with you today.
“The best way I can explain my childhood and maturity is giving you a parable. Image your a prince or princess…..Image how life is like knowing your loved and having the great things that royalty can offer. How peaceful it is knowing your parents are the King and Queen. One day out of no where while your still a child you witness a destruction so powerful and disrupting that it destroys your kingdom and life as you know it. No more King and no more Queen. Your now an outcast looking for answers but hunted for who you are. The person your destine to become! As you grow you travel and learn the meaning of life, the hard way because you have no direction but to succeed in yourself. Now as an adult the hidden King or Queen you are, You are asked to return back to your kingdom and reclaim the hope that was established. Sounds of your screaming past play as you remember the worst.”
The most tragic and inspiring story is seeing the King or Queen return to there castle and rebuild the beauty they once knew. The castle that held their family and shared the joys of love and royalty knowing where they came from. To better understand your role, maybe you must rebuild what was broken, not only for your sake but the future of your kingdom…..
Listen to this for your life’s questions.
“When your called to do something you have to make your WILL stronger to reach the needs for others to complete yourself.”
-Shane M. Carabajal
Meaning that if you cant face your fears and overcome them to help others. You will not be completed in battling your own demons and reach your personal peace.
Hope: A feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.
Hope is an expression of an action. We often hear “Man, I hope this doesn’t happen” or “Let’s hope this goes our way” What I’d like to ask you today is to change the word hope into a physical action. Like a superhero be a symbol. Yeah, it might sound corny and childish but we need to see hope in a new form. If others near you can see hope still exists in a new form of actions, either by deeds, giving, caring, and speaking then we can reach a new level of hope and hope will service as its true purpose. Empowering others to perform.
In the millions of people around the world! You can be that ONE. The one to be whatever you want. Crazy thing is!
Starting on your personal journey for success, look to the trip as a camping journey. You check to see what you have and then what you’ll need.
A key thing to remember is that to head off and start you dont need the best tent, compass, or flashlight. As long as YOU know the way you can improvise and eventually gain the best things for the trip.
WOW! No “Black Ops 2” for the next 21 days……
I’m known as The Final-Boss on the Sony Ps3’s Playstation Network and ranked #1 in the Platinum division on Call Of Duty’s World League. This action is raising lots of questions and concerns. I have a clan (Team) and at the brink of our 5 year return I’m leaving. Just obtaining my diamond guns to show off and giving up all the hard work for what? Why?!
For the first month of the new year I decided to fast. Fasting is something I do as a practice of faith in my religion. For the next 21 days one of the things I chose is to drop online gaming. This year will be ending in some parts of the country horrible. With mass shootings in theaters, malls, and schools we need a new vision and hope. As a school speaker one of the highest topic to discuss is bullying. I believe that we need to focus on violence in the homes and in the lives of others. Im willing to give up what I enjoy and pray about the change in minds and peace in life’s, so that this next coming year is safer for all of us.
