If I settle for what I already know and stop trying to grow as a person, I will end up on that island looking for the plane. I spent 20 years of my life with one company, got complacent, stopped trying to learn, stopped trying to better myself and was content with just settling in and riding along.
When you think about camels, you think about the desert, right?
Big lumbering animals that can go a long time without needing a drink because of their hump (or humps) that are not actually filled with water, but accumulated fats, which they can live off of for extended periods of time.
I guess that could be considered “The Camel Stereotype”.
In the heart of your most solemn barren night
When your soul’s turned inside out
Have you questioned all the madness you invite
What your life is all about
Mistakes, I’ve made plenty.
But the biggest mistake that I ever made was when I started believing that I could run the show. That I knew what was best for me and that I alone, would figure out how to get it
Struggles lead to Successes
Darkness leads to Light
Listen to any story of a successful person, and they will talk about the hard times that they had to go through to get to where they ended up.
So if you are not seeing a light at the end of the tunnel you are looking in, just know that it is there and you MUST keep moving forward until you see it.
Lately I have been hearing a bunch of people saying it. First time I heard it, I have to admit that I kind of agreed with it.
Then I started thinking.
The saying goes:
“Every deck of cards has 4 aces, those are the people that you are looking for”.
What this means is that when trying to build a team, you are going to go through a lot of people in order to find those “Shining Stars”, so basically don’t worry about those other ones that fall by the wayside…it’s just part of the game.
BULLCRAP! IT’S NOT A GAME!
