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.

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message! Thanksgiving is upon us friends, and before we know it 2017 will be coming to a close. As the hustle and bustle of the season gets underway, I hope you will take some time this week to be intentionally grateful for the abundance in your life. Abundance doesn’t always equal money…it can be as simple as a meaningful conversation over a cup of coffee, or the beautiful sunrise you witnessed as you began your day, or the pitter patter of little feet scampering across the floor in your home.

We tend to focus our thoughts about abundance in regard to money or material possessions…when in fact abundance comes in all shapes and forms, and true abundance can’t be bought or sold because it is an attitude that that lives inside of us. Wishing you a very happy Thanksgiving! Let’s make it a great week!

Be Thankful – Author Unknown

Be thankful that you don't already have everything you desire ... if you did, what would there be to look forward to? 

Be thankful when you don't know something ... for it gives you the opportunity to learn. 

Be thankful for the difficult times ... during those times you grow. 

Be thankful for your limitations ... they give you opportunities for improvement. 

Be thankful for each new challenge... which will build your strength and character. 

Be thankful for your mistakes ... they will teach you valuable lessons. 

Be thankful when you're tired and weary ... because it means you've given your all. 

It's easy to be thankful for the 'good' things ... yet, a life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are thankful for the setbacks. 

Gratitude can turn a negative into a positive ... find a way to be thankful for your troubles and they can become your blessings.

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it.” Charles R. Swindoll

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…90 percent of what happens to us is merely our emotions or how we label what we perceive…is it good or bad? Stressful or joyful? Rewarding or draining? However we label it, we ultimately get to choose. And I hope as you move about your week, you will think about this quote and how you can choose your emotions or reaction to what is happening around you. Remember, life is neither good nor bad…only your perception to your reality. Let's make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

Choices

There comes a time in your life, when you must decide,

No help from anyone, on which you've always relied.

Between right and wrong, between black and white,

Between good and bad, to walk away or fight.

To be honest and true. to be open with your heart, Or to hide your feelings, play it safe from the start.

To sit back and watch, to listen and learn,
Or jump into the fire, taking a chance on a burn.

To stay. to move. to not care, or always prove.

To be strong, to be weak, to be aggressive, to be meek.

To laugh out loud with all your might, or smile a little just to be polite.

To stay together. to live apart. to think with your mind, or trust your with heart.

To live in the past. to always look back, to look ahead to the future, with ambition you won't lack.

Begun at the front. or start at the end, believe in your own self, or follow the trend.

To dream. to hope, to quit, to cope. To be a lover, to be a friend to be real, or just pretend.

Choices we make can make or break, to have to decide at all could be our worst fall.

Choices are sometimes deceiving, you can be lured by the sweetest bait.

So make your decision wisely, because to change your mind could be too late.
