AYD - July 2, 2011 - You Have More In You

"If I accept you as you are, I will make you worse; however, if I treat you as though you are what you are capable of becoming, I help you become that."
- Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

They say that to be successful, one of the key elements is to surround yourself with like minded people.
Sometimes, however, it is not those that think like we do, or share our passions for the same dream that will provide that intensity match that promotes our fire ... sometimes, it is people outside of your dream but who still see your potential,  and respect you and your dream because you do, because you have shown them just who you can be ... sometimes those are the people that provide that encouragement right when you did not know you needed it.

In those moments, you may feel as though you are being challenged, and you are.  It is not offensive in nature.  Rather, it is respect in a challenge to reach for what you can be...and not try to hitch hike on excuses.

Friend, family, mentor, co-worker, or boss - if they allow you to just be, then they will never see you reach for the top row, where we all know the good prizes are.

"3 balls for two bucks.  Step right up. Everyone's a winner!  You sir, yes you! You look like you want to try..."

And, good morning.
