Stop Believing

Ever see the movie Ice Age : The Meltdown? Remember the part where Ellie, a 6 ton mammoth, truly believed she was an opossum… ridiculous, right!? I believe it happens far too often. Folks are brain-washed into believing I can’t, I’m not good enough, or I ________. Jump, you just might find out you have wings.

I heard a fantastic sermon yesterday (here is the link). Very practical guide to help you stop believing you are an opossum.

  1. Start where you are
  2. Use what you have
  3. Do what you can

Average 5

Ever had someone compliment you on your business or something you are passionately involved in? Yesterday, one of our customers handed me a compliment that really says it all. “Your unbelievable production speed and customer service actually makes me want to do the same for my customers.”  My head swelled and my chest puffed. I was almost ready to say thank you, then it hit me. I have not completed a single order nor talked to this particular customer on the phone in recent memory. My reply…”It’s not me; It’s the freakishly awesome people that work here.”

You are the people you run with. You can’t soar like an eagle if you hang with a bunch of turkeys. You know all the catch phrases. Bottom line, show me your five closest friends and I can predict with a high degree of accuracy your attitude, outlook, spirituality, relationships, and bank account. Choose your friends and work environment wisely!

I am blessed to work with some of the finest human beings on the planet.

Another Chance?

A few weeks ago, I had some siding work done on my house. I asked Chip, the contractor, “How are you doing?” His reply was, “Well, I woke up this morning… so, I get another chance.” Those four words, I Get Another Chance, have been stuck in my mind and heart ever since. Chip chose to face his day, his problems, and his work with anticipation instead of apprehension and dread.

God help me seize this chance.

That encounter with Chip and those four words have changed my life. Unless I died yesterday, I get another chance!
