Awaken Your Day - Mar 31, 2011 - Been There, Done That, Respect It

"Show me a man that cannot bother to do little things, and I'll show you a man who cannot be trusted to do big things."
- Lawrence D. Bell, Founder, Bell Aircraft

If you find yourself thinking and feeling that you are too good, or too important to do tasks you deem to be beneath you, then you may not have the best perspective of the moment at hand.

I have had some interesting jobs in my work experience.  Everything from a telephone operator, to a construction worker, to entertainment, and sweeping floors.  I have even made beds and cleaned toilets. At the time, I may have hated some of my jobs, but reflecting back, I would not change a moment.

I like to think that working my way up, gave me a better perspective, and appreciation for the efforts that many do, so that the rest can have comfort. 
People sometimes have to take on a job that seems to be looked down upon, and at the time, they are often judged personally by the way we judge the said position.  This is a tremendous injustice to the soul of the person.

Think of it this way...many famous contributors of "big things" in your way of life, started out with nothing but the courage to do what they had to do for work, and they had the heart to keep their self esteem alive while struggling in a role that we may see as less than fitting of our standards.

Think back to a time that you "survived" on your way to where ever you are right now.  Look back and recall how you felt then, and how you feel now about that time.  Are you not a better person for having that chapter to remind you of what it takes to work hard?

Rather than being judgemental, we need to remember that on some parallel, We have Been there...We have Done that... and so, we should Respect it.

Good morning, See you There.
