Let me ask this question..
what is your greatest asset?
In the work space it’s the people, the people are the greatest asset in any organization.
I have been fortunate enough, let me say this again…fortunate enough to work for an organization in which I feel like one of their greatest assets.
It is so very important to be able to see the bigger picture, the long term, the potential.
It’s not always easy, I would be foolish to say it was, however if you allow your self to see the bigger picture, the long term, the potential…YOUR POTENTIAL it could be magical.
Let them see you, let them see what you are truly capable of, let them see what your abilities truly are.
YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU TRULY HAVE A PASSION TO DO…..believe me I know this first handedly as I can honestly say I love what I do.
I believe in you, I believe in your abilities whether tapped into or not, I believe in you.
Smile….Make Eye Contact…Lean In…Listen…Get it done!
Good evening my friends
Is there ever a time when you don’t reflect, think back to other times, lost adventure, the what if’s?
I am not sure if it is an age thing, I am 51 and at a point where I am now seeing things through different lenses. I don’t miss some things and part of my reflection process clearly reminds me of that; for example going out every evening to the clubs.
It could also be that my daughter had done her first college visit and life it self is getting very real. My emotions are all over the place right now, but I know it will all balance, or at least I hope so.
When your 51 do you start thinking about the rest of your life? Am I being over worried for no reason? I have no idea, but there is a part of me that feels like I need to get stuff done already, travel, check off that bucket list.
I am going to start journaling more as it actually helps my anxiety a bit.
Interesting statement right? Saw this on Pinterest and thought well hell we have to don’t we?
But do we, do we grow through what we go through? I have mixed feelings with this right now.
Instinctively I know we do, you know that old “lesson learned” and “fool me once” none sense but yet how often do we circle right back and do the same shit over again? and maybe again after that.
We grow, you grow, I have grown, especially this last year, and we try our best to pull from our experiences of growth the lessons learned both good and bad.
You learn to maybe not post that even though it’s your own dam opinion just because it’s not worth the backlash from some and they mean more to you in end.
You learn to keep your eyes on the prize and maybe just maybe after all these years you will be recognized for doing what truly does inspire you.
You learn to be more observant and watch, listen, and think before reacting in anyway.
You learn to appreciate and be thankful for every opportunity presented, you learn to be humbled and gracious.
You learn a smile can speak volumes, eye contact can provide encouragement, a lean in shows you are truly hearing them, hearing there message.
You learn…you grow through what you go through….indeed.
Sometimes we think it takes something more than we actually have to give. Nope, sometimes all it takes is a smile, it’s a simple act, limitless, and cost nothing!
The payoff? Acknowledgement of others, a non verbal “hello”, “I get it”, “We got this”… a smile is so easily done, a contagious act of kindness.
So try action, give this gift, it truly is a beautiful things.
Each morning we when we awake we are provided that opportunity;
~To make a difference
~To make someone’s day
~To do something for yourself
~To tab into your potential
Do you see it? Look….it’s there, do you see it!
I have said this over and over again, especially of late! Listen….let me say it again LISTEN. Think, before you speak, before you react, before you do it! THINK. Lastly and most importantly OBSERVE what is going on, what they are doing, what reactions they are getting.
Three simple steps; Listen, Think, and Observe make this a part of your daily regiment, incorporate this into everything you do.
Be that dangerous!

The word circumstances is often used as a cop out! It’s very comfortable to simply blame it on “circumstances”, nah too easy!
Create your opportunities, carve your own path, create your success! You can do it, we know you can, YOU know you can!
So like Bruce Lee said “to hell with circumstances I create opportunities”
Tomorrow is a new opportunity to be creative!
