Nate’s Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this editionof the Nate's Monday Morning Message. I hope everyone enjoyed Mother's Day Weekend! Let's start out this week taking a few minutes to examine where we are in both our personal and business lives. 

Do we have a stated purpose for both? Do we have a plan to achieve the end result desired? Are we working each and every day on the actions that our plan calls for? Are we happy? Do we need to make some changes or work a little harder or smarter to achieve our goals? Do we believe that we control where we end up? Are we allowing negative people or thoughts to influence us?

Let us always remember that we have total control over one thing - ourselves! We decide what we will or will not do. We have control over what thoughts will or will not influence us. We choose to act the way we do every minute of every day. If we choose to, we have the power to change anything in our lives for the better. Make this the best week you have ever had!


“Storms Bring Out the Eagles, But the Little Birds Take Cover.” - Helen Steiner Rice

When the "storms of life"

Gather darkly ahead,

I think of these wonderful words 

I once read.

And I say to myself 

As "threatening clouds" hover,

Don't "fold up your wings"

And "run for cover."

But like the eagle,

"Spread wide your wings"

And "soar far above"

The troubles life brings.

For the eagle knows

That the higher he flies,

The more tranquil and brighter 

Become the skies. 

And there is nothing in life

God ever asks us to bear 

That we can't soar above 

"On the wings of prayer."

And in looking back over

The "storm you passed through,"

You'll find you gained strength 

And new courage, too.

For in facing "life's storms"

With an eagle's wings,

You can fly far above 

Earth's small, petty things.
