Nate's Monday Morning Message 

Welcome to this edition of Nate's Monday Morning Message. This week and every week there are opportunities that come into our lives. Do you have the mindset to see them when they do? Do you know how to recognize them and take full advantage of the opportunity each and every time? If you want to start making significant strides be ready when those opportunities arise. See them and act on them.

We all need to work on our skills, talents, organization, caring, and much more regularly. We also need to remember that we must recognize and take action on opportunities that come our way. They could be big or they could be small, but all of them can help us move closer to our goals if we want to. Put yourself in a position to win and then take the steps necessary to achieve. Look at everything that happens as an opportunity to do something great. This week is your week. Let's make this the best week of the year!!!

ENCOURAGEMENT CORNER...

Creating Opportunity:

An enterprising person is one who comes across a pile of scrap metal and sees the making of a wonderful sculpture.

An enterprising person is one who drives through an old decrepit part of town and sees a new housing development.

An enterprising person is one who sees opportunity in all areas of life.

To be enterprising is to keep your eyes open and your mind active. It's to be skilled enough, confident enough, creative enough and disciplined enough to seize opportunities that present themselves... regardless of the economy.

A person with an enterprising attitude says, "Find out what you can before action is taken." Do your homework. Do the research. Be prepared. Be resourceful. Do all you can in preparation of what's to come.

Enterprising people always see the future in the present. Enterprising people always find a way to take advantage of a situation, not be burdened by it. And enterprising people aren't lazy. They don't wait for opportunities to come to them, they go after the opportunities.

Enterprise means always finding a way to keep yourself actively working toward your ambition.

Enterprise is two things. The first is creativity. You need creativity to see what's out there and to shape it to your advantage. You need creativity to look at the world a little differently. You need creativity to take a different approach, to be different. What goes hand-in-hand with the creativity of enterprise is the second requirement: the courage to be creative. You need courage to see things differently, courage to go against the crowd, courage to take a different approach, courage to stand alone if you have to, courage to choose activity over inactivity.

And lastly, being enterprising doesn't just relate to the ability to make money. Being enterprising also means feeling good enough about yourself, having enough self-worth to want to seek advantages and opportunities that will make a difference in your future. And by doing so you will increase your confidence, your courage, your creativity and your self-worth, your enterprising nature. By: Jim Rohn
