Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Anything is possible, you are possible…did you commit to mastery this week? Did you commit to yourself; to your dreams and goals? Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message. Do you really believe that anything is possible? Or are you like many people who live in fear of pursuing their dreams and goals? On a daily basis I see people within my company who are literally paralyzed by fear…fear of rejection, fear that they lack enough knowledge or skill.

Here is an acronym I would like to share using the word FEAR:

(F) False
(E) Evidence
(R) Appearing
(R) Real

False evidence appearing real, just like anything we make-up in our minds, whether it is true or false, the feeling we attach to it, determines whether it is good or bad…or in other words, fear or happiness. Most people fail to realize that fear has the exact same emotional feeling in our bodies as excitement or happiness does. Fear can stop us dead in our tracks, while excitement can drive us to be great. You get to decide…fear or excitement? I hope this week you choose excitement! Make it a great week!

WORDS OF ENCOURGEMENT

The Elephant Rope
As a man was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at any time, break away from their bonds but for some reason, they did not.

He saw a trainer nearby and asked why these animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away. “Well,” trainer said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.”

The man was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

Failure is part of learning; we should never give up the struggle in life.

Nate's Monday Morning Message

by Nate Martinez

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this week’s edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…last week I challenged each of you to level up your passion, your commitment to you goals. How did you do? What did you discovery about yourself or your goals? Did you hit any obstacles? If so, how did you overcome them?

This week, I want to share a quote from one of my favorite public figures, Tony Robbins: “One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in particular.”

When I read this quote, there are two words that stand out the most and those are “power” and “mastery.” We are powerful beings, capable of doing and being whatever we can imagine possible, yet as this quote points out, most of us “dabble” our way through life, playing it safe or even worse, living in fear. Why is that? I believe it is because we do not commit to mastery. The dictionary’s definition of the word “mastery” means to command the expert skill or knowledge. The only way we become a master of anything in life is to commit or focus our efforts 110+ percent. What can you do today to get out of fear and into mastery? What is one action you can take? Anything is possible…YOU are possible. So dare to dream and dare to commit to mastery. Let’s make it a masterful week!

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

All the Difference in the World

Every Sunday morning I take a light jog around a park near my home.  There’s a lake located in one corner of the park.  Each time I jog by this lake, I see the same elderly woman sitting at the water’s edge with a small metal cage sitting beside her.

This past Sunday my curiosity got the best of me, so I stopped jogging and walked over to her.  As I got closer, I realized that the metal cage was in fact a small trap.  There were three turtles, unharmed, slowly walking around the base of the trap.  She had a fourth turtle in her lap that she was carefully scrubbing with a spongy brush.

“Hello,” I said.  “I see you here every Sunday morning.  If you don’t mind my nosiness, I’d love to know what you’re doing with these turtles.”

She smiled.  “I’m cleaning off their shells,” she replied.  “Anything on a turtle’s shell, like algae or scum, reduces the turtle’s ability to absorb heat and impedes its ability to swim.  It can also corrode and weaken the shell over time.”

“Wow!  That’s really nice of you!” I exclaimed.

She went on: “I spend a couple of hours each Sunday morning, relaxing by this lake and helping these little guys out.  It’s my own strange way of making a difference.”

“But don’t most freshwater turtles live their whole lives with algae and scum hanging from their shells?” I asked.

“Yep, sadly, they do,” she replied.

I scratched my head.  “Well then, don’t you think your time could be better spent?  I mean, I think your efforts are kind and all, but there are fresh water turtles living in lakes all around the world.  And 99% of these turtles don’t have kind people like you to help them clean off their shells.  So, no offense… but how exactly are your localized efforts here truly making a difference?”

The woman giggled aloud.  She then looked down at the turtle in her lap, scrubbed off the last piece of algae from its shell, and said, “Sweetie, if this little guy could talk, he’d tell you I just made all the difference in the world.”

The moral:  You can change the world – maybe not all at once, but one person, one animal, and one good deed at a time.  Wake up every morning and pretend like what you do makes a difference.  It does.

Nate's Monday Morning Message 

“Every time a football player goes to ply his trade he’s got to play from the ground up – from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play. Some guys play with their heads. That is okay. You’ve got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you’ve got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body. If you’re lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he’s never going to come off the field second.” Vince Lombardi

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…what a great game the Cardinals had yesterday! Their commitment and drive for the win is an inspiration to me and so many others. It doesn’t just take skill and training to win an NFL game…you have got to have heart and an undying passion for the game. This week I would like to challenge each of you to level up your passion, your drive, you commitment to your goals. What can you do this week to step it up and overcome an obstacle standing in your way? Each day we have a choice…and every day is game day. Let’s make it a winning week!

WORDS OF ENCOURAGEMENT

Everyone Has a Story in Life

A 24 year old boy seeing out from the train’s window shouted, “Dad, look the trees are going behind!”

Dad smiled and a young couple sitting nearby, looked at the 24 year old’s childish behavior with pity, suddenly he again exclaimed, “Dad, look the clouds are running with us!”

The couple couldn’t resist and said to the old man…“Why don’t you take your son to a good doctor?”

The old man smiled and said, “I did and we are just coming from the hospital, my son was blind from birth, he just got his eyes today.”

Every single person on the planet has a story. Don’t judge people before you truly know them. The truth might surprise you.
