I have no idea what type of flower this or why it was growing in the middle of a city, but I do know that God loves to hide beautiful things all around for us to discover. I imagine God waits with anticipation to see the joy on His children's faces at the tiny treasures scattered throughout each day. Don't forget to look for these beautiful gifts. Did you see anything that filled you with pleasure today?
A MENTOR MAKES THE DIFFERENCE
Emotions. Most of us guys hear that word and cringe. We run from them. We hide from them. We're uncomfortable when we feel them. We struggle with expressing them.
It wasn't long ago when I was told by my wife, "Phil, if you're happy, you should notify your face." That was her not so subtle way of telling me I wasn't doing a great job expressing my emotions
It's still something I'm working on, but the turning point in this area came one year ago. I knew my inability to effectively communicate my emotions was affecting not only my marriage but also work relationships, friendships and family relationships.
I knew if I didn't do something to change this area in my life, I would miss out on the opportunity to really thrive and lead the life I wanted.
I wanted to set the example for my two sons. It scared me to think about me passing down my weakness to them.
I asked myself, "If I have a daughter someday, am I living in the way and being the type of man I'd want her to marry?" The answer was painful.
I didn't want to struggle any longer.
I didn't want my wife and kids to suffer.
And whatever your struggle--whether it be health, finances, or business--you don't need to either.
So, what made the difference for me?
I hired a mentor.
I didn't NEED a mentor to be successful in this area. I could have struggled my way to success given enough time and persistence. What a mentor did for me was SHORTEN the amount of time it took for me to go from where I was to where I wanted to be.
It made all the difference in TIME.
You don't need to give up MONEY to hire a mentor. But from my experience, if you don't, you'll give up far more TIME.
Which resource is more valuable to you?
I used to think it was money, especially with a family to support and bills to pay. But when it clicked that I could always earn way more money in the long run, I realized it was TIME that was the far more valuable resource to me.
This may be different for you. Maybe you prefer to do it on your own. But for me, and for my clients who don't want to give up any more time than is necessary to reach their goals, we go the route of having a mentor.
@Regrann from @yoocandoanything - "Hi, my name is Roman. I am 3 years old. I was born 4 months early as a surviving twin at 1 pound 11 ounces. I have Hydrocephalus and Cerebral Palsy. I have had 3 brain surgeries to place a shunt when I was very small. I have been doing great since then. I take it all in stride. I have come a long way. It took me a long time to sit on my own and use my right hand. I work hard every single day to gain mobility. I do squats and stretches to strengthen my body and I love to swim. From all of my hard work, I now can use my gold walker to run around with my little brother. I love music, especially Johnny Cash and Chuck Berry. My mom says I'm an old soul. I love life and I smile all the time. I am preparing for a life changing surgery called SDR to help with my future mobility and it will help me to hopefully have less surgeries in the future. I stand in my walker and dance with one foot and play the air guitar and it's so much fun. I also love fashion. My mom wants people with unique abilities to be seen more in the media. My mom and dad say that I can and I will even if it takes me longer. Thank you for letting me share my story!" #yoocandoanything#yoocan#CerebralPalsy#CP#believe#beautiful#nevergiveup#inspiration#family#disABILITY#lifewithoutlimits#familylove - #regrann
See the beauty in the journey. It won't be perfect but worth it. Be patient. Don't rush it.
Increase your trust, be vulnerable, believe the best, take risk and let love be your default.
You'd be surprise to see how the LOVE and the legacy you've always desired begin to surround you. #LeslieDanielle
I've been stuck on the 'How' step for years. Literally...fcking...years.
Why? For some reason my brain doesn't compute unplanned action very well. But my sister put an idea in my head that I can't seem to let go of. A room full of people at a business seminar watered this seed. And a 48 hour mental breakdown finally pushed me over the edge.
In all my ignorance and incompetence, I'm finally pushing through to the try stage. Let's see how this goes #try#scribble#justdosomeshit#noanswers#guessncheck#failuntilyousucceed#inspiration#ihaveamidlifecrisisonceamonth
