Thursday’s Thought: What Are You Waiting For?

Ezra Pound Quote - A slave

Today’s Thought: What Are You Waiting For?

Key Question: What if they don’t show up?

Waiting is a pathology often influenced by faith. Faith that one day, some day, up ahead, then, when — everything is going to be. If it’s not, it must mean it wasn’t supposed to be, or, it isn’t time yet.

That type of thinking will burn through years of your life before you wake up and realize what you’ve been waiting on has been waiting on you.

Today’s the Day

What would you do different if what or who you were waiting on showed up today? I suggest you go to work doing that right now just in case they don’t show.

“A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.” — Ezra Pound

Monday Morning Motivation: Success Is Coming To Your Rescue

Monday Morning Motivation – “Success Is Coming To Your Rescue”

Failure can’t hold Success captive. Success is stronger than failure. The pull and the power of Success is greater than the pull or power of failure.

Success is genetically wired into you, and is activated most by captivity. If you find yourself being held captive by failure, hold on, you’re about to be set free.

Success is coming to your rescue!

Struck Down But Not Destroyed

Get Back Up (1)

Life Throws Sucker Punches.

It punches you in the gut sometimes leaving you gasping for breath in the corner of the ring. You didn’t ask for it. You didn’t do anything to deserve it. It just happened. Out of nowhere. WHAM!

That kind of blow knocks you on your assets, disorients your reality, unseats your confidence, and, for a moment, causes you to wonder if this is the final blow.

With your face in a pool of your own blood, you faintly hear the referee standing over you counting you out. “1, 2, 3, 4…”

A part of you cries out, “It is finished!

Another part declares, “You’ve been knocked down, but you are not destroyed. Get back up!”

You whisper to yourself, “do you have what it takes to get up again?”

The referee continues counting, “5, 6, 7, 8, 9…”

Where will the final count find you?

Then It Happens.

The numbness dissipates. A sense of awareness returns. Getting your wits about you, you realize this is not unto death.

This ain’t your final fight. You’ve been struck down but you are not destroyed. There’s more left in you…a lot more!

A setback is a setup for a comeback, IF, you get back up!

This isn’t your final round. This is a setback. Get back up!

It’s not over until you win!

Your comeback is waiting on you to get back up!
