How poor must you be before you can stop serving others?

JFK quote
Was oblivious to JFK’s death anniversary yesterday, November 22, 2017.

 

 

How poor must you be before you can stop serving others?

As we age and decline, at what point should serving others become a one-way street?

Prayers Please

May we all find the balance

Disney Institute Keynote Speakers

May i (may we all) find the balance between pushing myself versus pushing others.

When you push yourself, you are perceived by many to be ambitious and determined. You might also be perceived as inspiring (or a workaholic).

When you push others, you are being perceived by many to be condescending and judgemental. You might also be perceived as egotistical (or a meddler).

Find the balance.

i’ve spent a lifetime (including yesterday and today) identifying my blindspots, inconsistencies, and flaws.

There was a time when it was painful. Now i thrive on it.

Not everyone is in this place. Not everyone has a desire to ever go there.

Find the balance.

Surrender to the Universe and follow your heart, striving always to stay humble and kind.

Being perfectly imperfect, i continue to work hard to be an example and not a warning.

Prayed that i would (and will) remain humble

Jon Gordon speaker
Watched Jon speak yesterday. We talked for about 15 minutes prior to his speech. Super nice guy.

 

It’s easy for a competitor to judge their competition. It’s human nature to get defensive as well as to inflate our own self-worth.

Stay humble. Stay positive. Stay focused. Stay driven. Have fun. And serve, and speak, like you mean it.

Please forgive me for being a hypocrite

Eagle Scout ceremony
Yesterday afternoon’s Eagle Scout Ceremony.

 

Please forgive me for being a hypocrite. i try hard not to be. Being a teacher, i should be living the ideals as an exceptional role model.

But alas, i’m only human.

Perfectly imperfect.

As tempting as it constantly is, let no judgement or opinionated thought permeate my being.

Ever.

Lofty?

Heck yeah.

Impossible?

Maybe.

Maybe not.

Don’t judge a book by it’s cover

jeff noel Disney Speaker on training run

 

We let our guard down and pay the price. Yesterday’s 75-minute run didn’t begin until 11am. Shoulders sunburned. Covered in bugs.

And then as luck would have it during the cool down walk on our street, got to meet our future neighbors for the first time. Sweaty, bug ridden, shirtless. We never get a second chance to make a good first impression.

Right?

The antidote to “poor timing” is simple – a joyful, joy-filled spirit.

It never fails.

What’s on the inside is far more visible than what’s on the outside.

Kamar and Anita could see it clearly.

Be the change.
