Awaken Your Day - May 2, 2008

His name, is Alferd Williams.
He, is 70 years old.
He is also in grade one and learning to read for the first time in his life.

My wife, Sandra, and I really enjoy the Ellen DeGeneres show. I do recommend it for it's comical value. It is just good funny. Yes, good funny. Yesterday Alferd was her guest.
70 years old, loved by his classmates, and supported in his dream by his wonderful teacher. I am sure you can look him up as he is getting national attention right now for what is happening in his life.

My thought is quite simple. It is never too late. I do not know his life story, just this bit I witnessed on a t.v. show. But isn't that enough?

70 years old, and his life is essentially just beginning all over, with the ability to read.
He is a good person. He was in the right environment. Walking children to school. He was given an opportunity, when he told the teacher that he himself could not read. He recognized that opportunity. He had the desire to ask her if she would teach him.

He is genuine in his quest. He is sincere in his giving back of love and appreciation. He is enjoying the wonderful rewards of a dream coming true. He is finding a whole new world...because he had the courage to recognize that he could do this now - at 70 ...
"I'm too old," was never mentioned in the whole story.

Many people give up on even just the day ( not to mention a dream) right after they get up, or at the moment that they realize they still have to be at that job for 8 and that they did not magically win the lottery while they slept, or the gym fairies didn't come and take away those 30 pounds in the nite; or right about the time they look back on a life with regret that they did not do what they wanted to do. ( Relief from that job here.)

"If only I knew then what I know now. I would've ...."

You do know now what you need to know then! It is all around you - RIGHT NOW. Inspiration can find you anywhere!! You just have to be open for business.

Where you ask? Where is this inspiration?

70 year old Alferd Williams is in grade one and learning how to read for the very first time.

He is not embarrassed. He is not intimidated. He is ... happy. And he is focussed on the whole new world that is opening up before him. He is not - lingering on regret. He is too busy - discovering the simple and wonderful things in life, like how in a supermarket there is a bunch of words above each aisle. They tell you what is in that aisle. He never knew.

And that my friends, is a very simple, yet often overlooked, wonderful lesson of life.
It is never too late.

Have a wonderful day - becoming who you once only dreamed you could be.

Awaken Your Day - May 1, 2008

"Read, everyday, something no one else is reading. Think, everyday, something no one else is thinking. Do, everyday, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to always be part of unanimity."
- Christopher Morley, 1890-1957

Part of any personal development is growth. We desire to become more.
Part of dreaming is going beyond what is here today, and attaining something more.
Part of achieving is pushing your boundaries often into what is unknown.
And I truly feel that part of any success is being able to see a position or thought with an open mind from different angles, so that you can see more, understand more, become more knowledgable and thus ... grow in our position. Mental, physical or even financial.

This is not new. A long long time ago you were told, "There are two sides to every story."
"Walk a mile in my shoes." These are just a couple of early hints of not being uniform, or immediately unanimous in our thoughts and actions. A couple of hints that eventually lead to, "Think outside the box."

Read, Think or Do something that is outside of your norm. Pick up a different magazine, or change to a different radio station. As my business partner Marq suggests, even drive a different route to work. Mix things up. Alter the routine, and discover more of you.

Expose yourself to more to become more aware. More aware, is a wonderful asset.
The value of it just keeps rising.

Good morning.

Awaken Your Day - April 30, 2008

"I have found that if you love life, life will love you back."
- Arthur Rubinstein

Now...if only it were that easy.

But that is why we are here, to share the thoughts that help us to understand .... It Is.

We often talk about looking around us, and just becoming more aware of all the things we have; the things we have learned and achieved; the happiness that has found us. The key is becoming more aware of all that is good in our lives, and all that gives us reason to love it.

Today, I will touch on my awareness. I will build it on it. I will take inventory of all the good in my life ... and since there is so much, I may have to continue taking inventory each and every day ...

Good morning.

Awaken Your Day - April 28, 2008

"The path to our destination is not always a straight one. We go down the wrong road, we get lost, we turn back. Maybe it doesn't matter which road we embark on. Maybe what matters is that we embark."
- Barbara Hall

There are times when we reflect on something that has not gone 100% smooth. Some experience we have had that was not the easiest. And some of those times we must be honest with ourselves and say that had it not been for the tough parts of the journey, we may not be able to fully appreciate the same way this wonderful achievement at the end.

If you need another example from life around you, all you need to do is watch television. Some entertainer, or sports figure will tell you about getting lost along the way, and then they got on track and found their success BUT "Had it not been for.... " or "After all I have been through..."

Once again we arrive at the doorstep of Opportunity Monday. Notorious for seemingly being the cause of all things wrong today - Monday beckons us to step out of the house, and run the gauntlet of negative expectation that so many of us have created.

I ask that you embark on the journey that is Monday. And name your vessel, or your path, Opportunity. Begin with a charted course to what will be success for a day well done. And should something throw you off your planned route, simply readjust the steering to get you back onto the road to your chosen day's outcome.

If you are aware, and prepared - and driven to a goal - you can turn any setback, or detour right back to your favor.

Good morning, and good day.
