Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.” - Pele

Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message. Success is no accident. The most successful people we can study fall well within the terms outlined in this powerful quote. Learning, studying and being a master at your craft are essential components. Your commitment to the outcome will help you persevere through the rejection, the obstacles and the temporary set-backs. However, the love you have for what you are doing in life is a must. Don’t settle for a job or career that doesn’t bring your joy or fulfillment. Don’t settle for goals that don’t challenge you. Don’t settle for mediocrity. Let’s make it a great week!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER

One cowardly person came to a master of martial arts and asked to teach him bravery. The master looked at him and said: “I will teach you only with one condition: one month you will have to live in a big city and tell every person that you meet on your way that you are a coward. You will have to say it loudly, openly and looking straight into the person’s eyes.”

The person got really sad, because this task seemed very scary to him. For a couple of days he was very sad and thoughtful, but to live with his cowardice was so unbearable that he travelled to the city to accomplish his mission.

At first, when meeting the passers, he quailed, lost his speech and couldn’t contact anyone. But he needed to finish the master’s task, so he began to overcome himself. When he came up to his first passer to tell about his cowardice, it seemed to him that he would die from fear. But his voice sounded louder and more confident with every passing day.

Suddenly came a moment, when the man caught himself thinking that he’s not scared anymore, and the further he continued doing the master’s task, the more convinced he was that the fear was abandoning him. That way a month had passed. The person came back to the master, bowed to him and said: “Thank you, teacher. I finished your task. Now I’m not afraid anymore. But how did you know that this strange task will help me?”

“The thing is that cowardice is only a habit. And by doing the things that scare us, we can destroy the stereotypes and come to a conclusion that you came to. And now you know that bravery – is also a habit. And if you want to make bravery a part of yourself- you need to move forward into the fear. Then the fear will go away, and bravery will take its place.”
