NEVER WORK AGAIN
One of the first steps toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment you find yourself in. You have probably heard the saying GROWTH = CHANGE. I know that it’s possible to CHANGE without GROWING, but it is impossible to GROW without CHANGING. Like all of us, there are some things you cannot change, where you were born, what race you were born into, the color of your hair or your size. All these things you have little control over. However there are some things you do have control over and you can change these things.
What is so important is that you can change your attitude about all the things you cannot change. Change the way you look at those things. These are is the choices we make in our life that will change the environment we find ourselves in. Sam Colt the gun maker had a saying that the Colt 45 was the equalizer, well attitude is the equalizer in our life, it gives us the power to equalize all the things we cannot control in our life.
How about your career or your job, can you change your attitude about that job, and make it such a great choice that you never have to WORK AGAIN, because you are having so much fun that you don’t consider it a job or work. It is just fun. The job you have right now may not be the job you want all your life, but make choices that will get you to the place you really want to be and then you NEVER HAVE TO WORK AGAIN.
I am speaking to a group of educators Friday morning who I believe have careers that are the kind that will make a huge difference in the lives of our children. What call in life could be any greater than to effect our nation than by effecting our children. WHAT A GREAT WAY TO ADD VALUE TO PEOPLE’S LIFE.
