Nate's Monday Morning Message
Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. I hope you had a fantastic weekend filled with lots of fun and relaxation. I know that some days are much harder than others. I know that there are some days we wish we had back so we could either do a little more or do things a little differently. I know that we wish some days would just end.
Please keep in mind that we only have so many days. We can not give ourselves more, but what we do with them is completely up to us. You will face challenges and obstacles, but you can also face success and happiness. Most of the time they are all present at the same time. Live each day with a sense of excitement and each moment with a feeling of thankfulness. You are what you make yourself to be, and your success is yours to make. Have some fun and make sure you hold on long enough to enjoy the fruits of your labor.
The Workings of a Successful Mind by Devin McMillan,
The powers of the mind are not fixed
and science can never explain
What makes a person a success
yet leaves another so mundane.
For whatever the mind can conceive
with enough thought it will deliver.
There is no goal too extreme
when your mind is a benevolent giver.
Take risks in your daily life
or you can conform like the rest
Since rewards are only granted to
those who have passed this test.
Know that you have the power
to succeed in numerous ways
Or you can play it safe
being mediocre for all of your days.
So keep positive in all you do
wielding your list of goals in hand
Fear not what others say
just focus on your plan.
Enjoy every breath that passes
and every task there is to do
Since your actions will only play
the goals you have placed in cue.
And always remember to gift
a little of everything you make
For life is defined by giving
and never by what you take.
