I don’t believe it talent. I believe that we are who we are because of how we are raised, for the most part. That is a whole other post by itself.
I believe in out working, out smarting, and preparing for anything.
I love this video. When I first saw it I immediately linked it to Facebook. I haven’t ever been a huge fan of Will Smith, but this made me think… “He gets it.”
Sorry for the bad link. I got it right this time.
I woke up this morning angry, frustrated, and disappointed. These emotions quickly were replaced with confusion… I forgot about the time change. After I realized that my smartphone was smarter than me, I went back to being frustrated and exhausted. Yesterday was tough, to say the least… And six in the morning has never agreed with me.
I got ready and took off in my car. I was headed to a meet in the pitch black darkness of the morning. I continued to brood and steam as I drove for the next forty-five minutes… And then… I looked in my mirror.
I saw no headlights, no darkness, no problems, no frustration. I saw the beginning of the sun rising. I began to think about how beautiful it was. Quickly all of my emotions changed. My thoughts did as well.
I realized that this could very possible be the last time that I ever get to see the beauty that is a sun rise. I realized that every day is another chance to get it right, to get better. Every day is another chance to live beautifully. I remembered that we aren’t promised anything in this life and to appreciate everything you have and make the best of every opportunity and situation.
It is amazing how something so simple can change your attitude completely. I just wanted to share this experience with any potential readers.
