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.
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…..
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.
