Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message! Today we are reminded of a man who left a massive mark on the world, and started a movement that has forever changed the lives of millions of people. I am inspired by MLK Jr. and his tenacity despite the obstacles he faced. He never waived from his goal and his message, even from a jail cell in Alabama. We can learn a lot from his commitment to the outcome, and be reminded that “faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase.” Let’s make it a great week!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Morning Message! I trust that the first official week of the New Year has been a good one, and that you are ready to welcome the opportunities that the New Year offers. I saw this quote the other day, and it has stuck with me, so I thought I would share it with you today… “Everything about how you live your life is an expression of how much you love being alive.” Bruce Van Horn

Life is meant to be lived to its fullest, and how we spend our days is an expression of how much we value being alive. As you dive into your New Year’s resolutions and goals, I hope you will consider this quote. How will you live your life in 2018? Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

A Glass of Milk

A young poor boy who was begging from door to door to feed his hungry stomach, decided he would ask for a meal at the next house. However, he lost his nerve when a lovely young woman opened the door. Instead of a meal, he just asked for a glass of water, the woman thought he looked hungry, so she brought him a large glass of milk. He drank it slowly, and then asked "how much do I owe you?."

"You don't owe me anything, she replied. Mother has taught us never to accept pay for kindness." He said, "Then I thank you from my heart."

Years later, that young woman became critically ill, the local doctors were battling because they couldn't cure her, they finally sent her to the big city, where they called specialists to study her rare illness.

Dr. Howard Kelly was called in for the consultation, when he heard the name of the town where she came from, a strange light filled his eyes. Immediately, he rose and went down the hall of the hospital to her room. He recognized her at once.

He went back to the consultation room determined to do his best to save her life. From that day, he gave special attention to that case. After a long struggle, the battle was won! Dr. Kelly requested the business office to pass the final bill to him for approval. He looked at it, then wrote something on the bill. It was sent to her room, the woman feared opening it, for she was sure it might take the rest of her life to pay for it all.

Finally she looked, and noticed something was written at the edge of the note, “paid in full with a glass of milk.” Tears filled her eyes as she immediately remembered...

Every form of kindness you show doesn't bounce, it reproduces itself. Not necessarily before your eyes, but it always does. It is good to be good. Always be nice for it always comes back to you.

4. How are you going to work on building long-term wealth?
5. What are you most grateful for?
6. Who do you need to forgive? 
7. What new habits will you cultivate for 2017?

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.” - Rainer Maria Rilke

“The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.” - Gilbert K. Chesterton

“Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.” - Oprah Winfrey

“All of us every single year, we're a different person. I don't think we're the same person all our lives.” - Steven Spielberg

Nate's Monday Morning Message: Happy Holidays!

by Nate Martinez

Nate’s Monday Morning Message
 

Welcome to the Christmas Day version of Nate’s Monday Morning Message! I hope this email finds you filled with holiday cheer, and surrounded by those you love dear. I blessed to be celebrating another holiday season, and another birthday…as I get older I realize the importance that time represents. It is the one finite thing in life, and when we get to the end of it, we always want more…whether that is more time together, more time away, more time to do {fill in the blank}…more time is a precious gift. As you gather today to celebrate with your family and friends, I hope you will take advantage of every second you have, because time spent together is the real gift of the season. Wishing each of you reading this a very happy holiday!!!

Christmas Spirit

Put up a splash of Christmas spirit
Put in a dash of love
Stir up the sounds ‘till you can hear it
Sing out to those you love

Christmas, Christmas, you can fill me
Up with Christmas cheer
Christmas, Christmas, you fulfill my
Spirit every year

Toss up a mash of extra magic
Toss in a batch of love
Let up the lights with random logic
Look out for sleighs above

Santa, Santa, can I have it
Please I’ve been so good
Santa, Santa, please I beg you
Please oh if you would

Get up a clash of Christmas color
Get in a catch of love
Set up and show the shiny decor 
Shout out with Christmas love

Listen, listen, you can see it
Spirit everywhere
Listen, listen, you can do it
Spread it out and share

Put up a splash of Christmas spirit
Put in a dash of love
Stir up the sounds ‘till you can hear it
Sing out to those you love

Christmas, Christmas, you can fill me
Up with Christmas cheer
Christmas, Christmas, you fulfill my
Spirit every year

Nate's Monday Morning Message

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! Ready or not, Christmas will be here in just one week! As you finish up your shopping list, and prepare for family and friends to gather, I hope you will take a few minutes to reflect on what is most important about this time of year. The memories we create this week will last a lifetime, so make them count. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

A long time ago there was a boy. He was smart, talented and handsome. However, he was very selfish and his temper was so difficult, that nobody wanted to be friends with him. Often he got angry and said various hurtful things to people around him.

The boy‘s parents very concerned about his bad temper. They considered what they could do and one day the father had an idea. He called his son and gave him a hammer and a bag of nails. The father said: “Every time you get angry, take a nail and drive into that old fence as hard as you can.”

The fence was very tough and the hammer was heavy, nevertheless the boy was so furious that during the very first day he has driven 37 nails.

Day after day, week after week, the number of nails was gradually decreasing. After some time, the boy started to understand that holding his temper is easier that driving nails into the fence.

One day the boy didn‘t need hammer and nails anymore as he learned to hold his temper perfectly. So he came to his father and told about his achievement. “Now every time, when you hold your temper all day long, pull out one nail.”

Much time has passed. At last the boy could be proud of himself as all the nails were gone. When he came to his father and told about this, he offered to come and take a careful look at the fence. “You did a good job, my son, but pay your attention to the holes that left from the nails. The fence will never be the same. The same happens when your say hurtful things to people, as your words leave scars in their hearts like those holes in the fence. Remember, we need to treat everyone with love and respect, because it doesn‘t matter, that you say you are sorry, the scars will not disappear.”

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! We are twenty days away from a New Year – are you ready? I know that this time of year is busy with holiday fun, however I hope you will make time to reflect on the months that have past and prepare for what is to come in 2018. What went right in 2017? What goals did you accomplish? What goals did not get done, and why? What do you want to change in 2018? In order to live the life we want to live, we have to spend time working on our goals – it’s not enough to say what you want to do – you have to create a plan and take action. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

A Long Time Ago There Was a Great Shah

A long time ago there was a great shah. He ordered to build a beautiful palace which had many wonderful things in it. Among other curiosities in the palace there was a hall, where all the walls, the sealing, the door and even the floor were made of mirror. The mirrors were so clear and smooth that visitors didn’t understand at once that there was a mirror in front of them – so accurately the mirrors would reflect the objects. Moreover, the walls of this hall were made in a way that they created an extraordinary increased echo.

Once, a dog ran into the hall and froze in surprise in the middle of the hall, a whole pack of dogs surrounded it from all sides, from above and below. Just in case, the dog bared his teeth- and all the reflections responded to it in the same way. Frightened, the dog frantically barked – the echo imitated the bark and increased it many times. The dog barked even harder – and the echo was keeping up. The dog tossed from one side to another, biting the air- his reflections also tossed around snapping their teeth.

In the morning, the guards found the miserable dog, lifeless and surrounded by a million reflections of lifeless dogs. There was nobody, who would make any harm to the dog. The dog died by fighting with his own reflections.

The world doesn’t bring good or evil on its own. Everything that is happening around us is the reflection of our own thoughts, feelings, wishes and actions. The world is a big mirror.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” – Albert Schweitzer

“There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it.” - Edith Wharton

“Christmas is the spirit of giving without a thought of getting. It is happiness because we see joy in people. It is forgetting self and finding time for others. It is discarding the meaningless and stressing the true values.” - Thomas S. Monson

“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.” - Aesop

Nate’s Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! Things are getting into full swing with parties, decorations and our favorite holiday movies. And we are hoping while you are in the spirit of giving that you will help us with a food drive to benefit St. Mary’s Food Bank.

This year, the food banks across the U.S. are in need, after the multiple natural disasters that hit Texas, Florida, and Puerta Rico. Sadly, Arizona ranks third in the country for high child food insecurities, meaning that thousands of children face hunger on a daily basis. Throughout the month of December we are collecting donations at each office locations, or you can make a monetary donation online by clicking here. Every penny counts; every dollar makes a difference! Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

If we were given 86,400 dollars every day to spend any way we could
And at the end of the day what we didn't spend would be lost to us for good, 

What would we do? We wouldn't have to think too hard, or engage in a long discourse
We would take that money, go right out and spend it all, of course! 

Each day we are given 86,400 seconds, it's been this way for centuries. 
86,400 seconds every day- do with as we please.

There is one caveat, you might say this gift comes with a hidden cost
Whatever time we don't use wisely, at the end of the day is lost.

Yes, it's free and it's ours to spend, no strings attached...however
Whatever time we lose today is time that's lost forever.

Yet such is the nature of this gift- true our daily seconds don't accrue
That when we wake the next morning- each day we start anew.

I believe the lesson we are shown here- since there's no way to extend them
The 86,400 seconds are less important- than how we choose to spend them. 

Written by Jim Yerman

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.” - Henry Ford

“Yesterday is not ours to recover, but tomorrow is ours to win or lose.” - Lyndon B. Johnson

“Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone's face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.” - Henri Nouwen

I hope you find these tips helpful in creating goals to help you succeed in 2018! Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Strength or Weakness?

Sometimes your biggest weakness can become your biggest strength. Take, for example, the story of one 10-year-old boy who decided to study judo despite the fact that he had lost his left arm in a devastating car accident.

The boy began lessons with an old Japanese judo master. The boy was doing well, so he couldn't understand why, after three months of training the master had taught him only one move.

"Sensei," the boy finally said, "Shouldn't I be learning more moves?"

"This is the only move you know, but this is the only move you'll ever need to know," the sensei replied.

Not quite understanding, but believing in his teacher, the boy kept training.

Several months later, the sensei took the boy to his first tournament. Surprising himself, the boy easily won his first two matches. The third match proved to be more difficult, but after some time, his opponent became impatient and charged; the boy deftly used his one move to win the match. Still amazed by his success, the boy was now in the finals.

This time, his opponent was bigger, stronger, and more experienced. For a while, the boy appeared to be overmatched. Concerned that the boy might get hurt, the referee called a time-out. He was about to stop the match when the sensei intervened.

"No," the sensei insisted, "Let him continue."

Soon after the match resumed, his opponent made a critical mistake: he dropped his guard. Instantly, the boy used his move to pin him. The boy had won the match and the tournament. He was the champion.

On the way home, the boy and sensei reviewed every move in each and every match. Then the boy summoned the courage to ask what was really on his mind.

"Sensei, how did I win the tournament with only one move?"

"You won for two reasons," the sensei answered. "First, you've almost mastered one of the most difficult throws in all of judo. And second, the only known defense for that move is for your opponent to grip your left arm."

The boy's biggest weakness had become his biggest strength.
