Are You Thirsty

Thirsty people find a way to quench their thirst.  Simple thought isn’t it? 

Let’s play with this for a moment. 

For what are you thirsty? 

~To build an enterprise
~To be the best at whatever it is you wish to be the best
~To write an epic novel
~To own your own home or business

Seth Godin says this:



He put that in his latest book - What to Do when It’s Your Turn

Quench your thirst at the bar of hard work, industriousness, knowledge, plans and dreams.

Make the time for what matters. 

Take a long drink from that well.

A Word about Stupid

I hate stupid.

Have you ever been “stupid”?  I imagine you have, just like me.

What does “stupid” mean? 

"Stupid" just means you don't know IT yet.  Stupid mans you haven't practiced enough, studied enough, or done the act enough to break it down and turn "it" into a useful tool or habit.  Stupid means it's not knowledge yet - it's just new. 

“New!”  I understand “new”.  “New” and “Stupid” seem to be a lot alike. 

Every time we learn a new skill we are usually “stupid” at first.  We are clumsy, slow as molasses, inconsistent, and usually have to ask a lot of questions.

And then one fine day “stupid” fades and the new skill and knowledge remain.  What a fine day that is. 

Stupid leads to knowledge.  Who would have thought?

Is it Your Turn

You've been in line for a long time.  You can see the golden ring.  It is almost in your grasp. 

Is it, perhaps, your turn?

Look around you.  Opportunities abound.  Knowledge abounds.  The internet brings any answer to any question in a blink.

The stock market is soaring once again.  Restaurants are full and the wine is flowing.  People are spending money. 

Unemployment is falling.  Interest rates are low.  Gas prices are at a ten-year low.

Knowledge is in full bloom.

What do you want?
What do you need to get that want?

Is it your turn?

Yes indeed.  It is time for your turn.

The Dice Don't Dictate

I don’t live by the roll of the dice.  I don’t rub my lucky rabbit’s foot every time I desire a good outcome.  I use something even more powerful.

I CHOOSE!

You and I have been given the greatest of gifts – the power of choice.  I don’t eat everything that is put in front of me.  I don’t believe everything I read on Facebook, or in Huffington Post.  I don’t even believe all I hear from every newscaster.

We have been given brains with which to reason and check data. 

Don’t let the dice decide your destiny.

Think!

Choose!
