At some point….
Your position could and will be eliminated,or outsourced.
It’ll be a business decision that’ll you’ll find yourself taking personal
At Some point…
They will hire somebody younger and cheaper once you become unable to perform at your normal standard.
They’ll pretty much force you out the door.
At some point…
The workload and hours will increase but the pay will only nominally increase.
Profits up morale down.
At some point
You will get tired of doing it just for the money once you become numb to it and the monotony sets in.
Work from your heart,and watching the clock waiting to get off won’t exist.
At some point
You will want a change in lifestyle,but wait your job or career determines that.so you will be helplessly tied to the lifestyle only it supports.
Who’s life is this anyway?This can’t be life
At some point…
You will feel you are worth more and want a raise,but wont be able to demand one.
Remember your worth is already pre-determined and factored into the budget and the company’s bottom line.
“You don’t get paid by the hour,You get paid by the value you bring to that hour”Zig Ziglar
At some point…
You will get fed up with the politics,senority,brown nosing and a host of other games played in the work place.
You should be judged by your work ethic .Not by kissing up to the man and laughing at his non funny jokes just to stroke his ego.
At some pointYou will wake one day and wonder ..how did I get here?Was this my plan?Or did the current just wash me over here?
"If you don't know where you're going any road will take you there"
At some point we have to make that decision

Today I want to touch on some of the foundational principles of your success path and journey.
They deal with the spirit,mind and body.
First of all we must have our spirit in order.Meaning are you right with God and listening to him.
You cant just go about doing whatever and expect success in the physical world based on your spiritual world.Maybe you have some bad habits you need to get under control.Maybe it’s something holding you back all these years from your true prosperity.I’m not overly religious but I do believe in a higher power.I also believe that God has brought us all here not be limited.To seek him and get aligned with our purpose and passions.To live the life we imagine we can.
Author Neale Donald Walsh is his book Meditations from conversations with God has statements for everyday in the book.One stood out to this post for May 15”Listen to me in the truth of your soul.Listen to me in the feelings of your heart.Listen to me in the quiet of your mind”
Once you get the spirit under control,you can master you mind and body to do the things in accordance with your goals.
How can you expect to control anything if you can’t control yourself?
The rapper Common has a song “G.O.D”(Gaining One’s Defintion) that’s deep laced with gems of spirituality.There is a line that he says”Be a slave to master self”Wow that’s a hard one to swallow.But resonates so true to me.
So check yourself daily even through out the day and ask.Is my thoughts,actions,and words in alignment with my goals?
If not then why not?And what outcome do I expect?
Listen to your soul let it guide you.It’s our built in GPS…

A few months back my wife bought us some coffee mugs from Starbucks.The mugs came with a pen to write on the mug then put it in the oven and you had your own personalized mug.So we both get to drawing and writing things on the cups .Symbols and words of who we are.It’s an interesting project to do with a group also.Almost like making a art project back in the day in art class.For me it kind of of symbolized the start of anew chapter in my life. A goal of starting multiple companies and making a living from passion rather than grunt manual labor.
My coffee mug DoYou!,Be original
All of us are born with an original stamp.Like ,interests, and style that no else has.Yet for some reason some of us are scared to be us(who we really are).I’ve noticed a a lot of people wear a socialablly acceptable mask.That is a fake persona they think they will be accept for.Yet deep down they are hiding their true self, talent and expression.They live lifes of quiet desperation.Dr Phil writes in his book The Authentic Self that “trying to hold a ball under water” is like trying to deny who you are.Have you ever tried to hold a ball under water?Well you know how hard that is.
Sometimes it takes time to find out who you really are .After trials and tribulations you discover your strengths and weaknesses and well as uniqueness.Kanye West has a chorus line in one of his songs”Everything I’m not made me everything I am”.I thought that was so profound when I heard that.Just be the best you.
The universe doesn’t need another copy ,it needs a unique soul to walk its own path while here on earth.I see a lot of people model other people because they have some admirable traits.That might be somewhat ok but whatever they’re doing might work for them,not you too.
Be bold seek your core value and principles.How boring would it be if everybody was the same?We would be a bunch of drones running around.No individuality…..
Be original,Love life
My wife’s coffee mug
“Love hard,laugh hard,love life”
