Nate's Monday Morning Message

Welcome to this edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message. I hope you all had a nice and relaxing weekend. I know I sure did! This week would be a great week to work on relationships. Do you treat all the people in your life in that special way they deserve? If not, start. 

We all go through life and with the hustle and bustle of living we forget to make sure we do not take for granted those special people that are around us. It could be a spouse or significant other. It could be your children or your parents. It could be your best friend or a co-worker. It could be a total stranger. 

Let's take 5 minutes and realize that we are never too busy to look into the eyes of the person we love for just a few more seconds each day. Let's take 5 minutes and realize that we are never too busy to spend just a few more minutes playing with a child or talking to a parent. Let's take 5 minutes and realize that we are never too busy to help a friend with a problem they are having and actually pay attention. Let's not be so busy in life that we miss it!


Echo or Life

"A son and his father were walking on the mountains. Suddenly, his son falls, hurts himself and screams, “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!” To his surprise, he hears a voice repeating, somewhere in the mountain, “AAAhhhhhhhhhhh!" Curious, he yells, "Who are you?” He receives the answer, "Who are you?” Angered at the response, he screams, “Coward!" He receives the answer, "Coward!"

He looks to his father and asks, "What's going on?” The father smiles and says, "My son, pay attention.” And then he screams to the mountain, “I admire you!” The voice answers, “I admire you!” Again the father screams, "You are a champion!” The voice answers, "You are a champion!” 

The boy is surprised, but does not understand. Then the father explains, "People call this echo, but really this is life. It gives you back everything you say or do. Our life is simply a reflection of our actions. If you want more love in the world, create more love in your heart. If you want more competence in your team, improve your competence. This relationship applies to everything, in all aspects of life; Life will give you back everything you have given to it.”
