Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…I hope you all had a wonderful weekend filled with fun and enjoyment. I wanted to talk with you this week about fairness and understanding. Many of us heard as children that "Life just is not fair." Well I don't think that is so. I think that life is all of what you make of it and fairness is a level of degrees. I would suggest that all of us know people that are deliberate, thoughtful, and fair. I would also suggest that all of us know people that are non-deliberate, non-thoughtful, and not very fair.

Those people are typically surrounded by others like them or no one at all. They are full of themselves because nobody else really can deal with them. We all know who they are. We tolerate them to a point, but there is always a tipping point that we just say enough is enough. I would encourage all of you to look at yourself to make sure that you are deliberate, thoughtful, and fair. Regardless of what life has done for you up until today, the future is a clean canvas and you are the painter. Make wise choices and be fair and understanding to all. Life will bring back to you what you give to others. Let’s make it a great week!


When the Sun Comes Up!

In Africa every morning a gazelle awakens knowing that it must outrun the fastest lion if it wants to stay alive.

Every morning a lion wakes up knowing that it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve to death.

It makes no difference whether you are a lion or a gazelle: when the sun comes up, you had better be running.

I would just prefer to be the lion!
