Nate’s Monday Morning Message

“My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” – John F. Kennedy

Welcome to Nate’s Monday Message…today I want to acknowledge the brave men and women who have selflessly sacrificed for our country. Without their service, we would not be here today. As you gather today with your family and friends, please take a moment to honor and remember. We know that freedom is not free, and we are forever grateful. Have a safe, happy and healthy Memorial Day celebration. Let’s make it a great week!

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

This week I am excited to share with you a local community event that my daughter, Brandi is volunteering for.  It makes me so proud to see my girl getting involved in such a worthy cause…and the woman who founded the organization, Finding My Shoes has an incredible story. Brenda R. Combs’ journey is being called “from homeless to hero” by local media, as she was once a homeless crack addict, but is now a symbol of inspiration and perseverance.

Inspired by her own story, the Finding My Shoes Organization was created to provide shoes and other care items for homeless people. My daughter Brandi is volunteering for a community event coming up on June 4th and she is asking for our support by donating shoes, flip flops and bottled water. She will be collecting donations at any one of our offices now through June 3rd. They are still looking for volunteers for the day of the event, if you are interested in getting more involved. 

I would encourage you to read more about Brenda’s ten years as a homeless woman and how she became Grand Canyon University’s first “Ambassador of Inspiration.” www.BrendaCombs.com. I am in awe of this women’s courage, her strength and determination. I hope that you will help support her cause and her desire to make our world just a little better. Let’s make it a great week!

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“The best way out is always through.” – Robert Frost

It’s another Monday Morning and time for Nate’s Monday Morning Message…the quote of the day seems simple but it is really quiet profound. Too many times we avoid a difficult situation because we don’t want to deal with it…or perhaps we are ignoring a potential health issue because we are afraid, or avoiding a conflict with someone we care about. But at the end of the day, the only way through a difficult or challenging situation is to walk through it with grace and a commitment to a positive outcome.

We are human. We make mistakes and sometimes we forget that because we holding ourselves to a high standard. Personally I hold myself to the highest of standards especially when it comes to my real estate business. But even I can make mistakes and fall short of high-standard-bar. I have learned over the years, and often times the hard way, that the only way to get to the other side of feeling good again, is to walk through it. This week, I challenge you to face whatever is causing you to feel fearful, angry, sad, lonely, anxious…face it head on and walk through it. You can do it. Let’s make it a great week!

To Build a Bridge

The Brooklyn Bridge that spans the river tying Manhattan Island to Brooklyn is truly a miracle bridge. In 1863, a creative engineer named John Roebling was inspired by an idea for this spectacular bridge. However, bridge-building experts throughout the world told him to forget it; it could not be done.

Roebling convinced his son, Washington, who was a young up and coming engineer, that the bridge could be built. The two of them developed the concepts of how it could be accomplished and how the obstacles could be overcome. With unharnessed excitement and inspiration, they hired their crew and began to build their dream bridge.

The project was only a few months under construction when a tragic accident on the site took the life of John Roebling and severely injured his son, Washington. Washington was left with permanent brain damage and was unable to talk or walk. Everyone felt that the project would have to be scrapped since the Roeblings were the only ones who knew how the bridge could be built.

Even though Washington was unable to move or talk, his mind was as sharp as ever, and he still had a burning desire to complete the bridge. An idea hit him as he lay in his hospital bed, and he developed a code for communication. All he could move was one finger, so he touched the arm of his wife with that finger, tapping out the code to communicate to her what to tell the engineers who were building the bridge. For thirteen years, Washington tapped out his instructions with his finger until the spectacular Brooklyn Bridge was finally completed.

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Thank You” two words when uttered together have a deep, powerful message. Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…I trust that each of you reading this email had a lovely Mother’s Day weekend. They say “an attitude of gratitude” is the best attitude to have and the best place to start is by learning to say “Thank You.” When we express our gratitude by saying “Thank You” it has a ripple effect that changes our attitudes, and how we move throughout our day and impacts those around us in a positive way. This week, I challenge you to get into an attitude of gratitude. Look for ways to say “Thank You” as often as you can and let’s see how it improves our lives. I will start by saying THANK YOU to each of you reading this email – let’s make it a great week!

There Was a Boy Whose Family Was Very Wealthy

There was a boy, whose family was very wealthy. One day his father took him on a trip to the country, where he aimed to show his son, how poor people live. So they arrived to a farm of a very poor family, as he considered. They spent there several days. On their return, the father asked his son, did he like the trip.

“Oh, it was great, dad” – the boy replied. “Did you notice how poor people live?” “Yeah, I did“- said the boy. The father asked his son to tell in more details about his impressions from their trip.

“Well, we have only one dog, and they have four of them. In our garden there is a pool, while they have a river that has no end. We‘ve got expensive lanterns, but they have stars above their heads at night. We have the patio, and they have the whole horizon. We have only a small piece of land, while they have the endless fields. We buy food, but they grow it. We have high fence for protection of our property, and they don‘t need it, as their friends protect them.”

The father was stunned. He could not say a word. Then the boy added: “Thank you, dad, for letting me see how poor we are.”

This story shows that the true wealth as well as happiness is not measured by materials things. Love, friendship and freedom are far more valuable.

WORDS OF INSPIRATION

“'Thank you' is the best prayer that anyone could say. I say that one a lot. Thank you expresses extreme gratitude, humility, understanding.” - Alice Walker

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.” - Melody Beattie

“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.” - John Milton

“Gratitude is the sign of noble souls.” – Aesop

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” - Gilbert K. Chesterton

Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Nothing makes one feel so strong as a call for help.” - Pope Paul VI

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…we have all been there, at least once or twice and even when we hate to admit it; sometimes you just can’t do it all. It is both empowering and humbling to ask for help. And in most cases, the people we ask for help are more than happy to jump in. I learned a long time ago that when we try to do it all ourselves, whatever that looks like…be it physically doing everything, or always the one to pay for the dinners out or the one who always hosts the party…we actually deny the people in our life the pleasure of giving back to us.

According to the Law of Reciprocity, when someone does something nice for a person, there is a deep-rooted psychological need to return the favor…if we are constantly doing it all, are we really helping or are we hurting our loved ones? There is a lot to be gained by allowing others to help, and it feels great to receive their support. Let’s start this week…who can you ask for help? Who owes you a favor, or a turn at picking up the check? Just ask, you’ll be surprised by the response. Let’s make it a great week!

A Lesson from the Mad Hatter

One of the first steps to accomplishing great things in your life is to cease dwelling on the negative things in your past. Carefully assess your present strengths, successes, and achievements. Dwell on those positive events in your life, and quit limiting your potential by constantly thinking about what you have done poorly. Alice and the Mad Hatter in Wonderland had a conversation that illustrates this concept:

Alice: Where I come from, people study what they are not good at in order to be able to do what they are good at.

Mad Hatter: We only go around in circles in Wonderland, but we always end up where we started. Would you mind explaining yourself?

Alice: Well, grown-ups tell us to find out what we did wrong, and never do it again

Mad Hatter: That's odd! It seems to me that in order to find out about something, you have to study it. And when you study it, you should become better at it. Why should you want to become better at something and then never do it again? But please continue.

Alice: Nobody ever tells us to study the right things we do. We're only supposed to learn from the wrong things. But we are permitted to study the right things other people do. And sometimes we're even told to copy them.

Mad Hatter: That's cheating!

Alice: You're quite right, Mr. Hatter. I do live in a topsy-turvy world. It seems like I have to do something wrong first, in order to learn from what not to do. And then, by not doing what I'm not supposed to do, perhaps I'll be right. But I'd rather be right the first time, wouldn't you?
