The Daily Echo: Difficulty….. September 26, 2016

Difficulty……. Hmm I think we have all been through some difficulties… This weekend a sweet aunt of my wife passed away. Her name was Cyrene.. I met Cyrenne almost 30 years ago. At the time she was relatively health but had a noticeable limp. Eventually that limp led to hip replacement, then confinement to a wheelchair, eventually she had amputation of one leg due to other issues and on and on. When Cyrenne finally left us she had been afflicted with throat cancer, bone cancer, diabetes that led to amputation, a stroke and the list goes on.. The last time I saw Cyrenne was at my mother in law’s funeral in March. Cyrenne showed up with a smile on her face like I always saw. Durning the funeral she rolled her chair up and gave a lovely tribute to her sister in law once again with that smile on her face. I don’t ever remember cyrenne complain through all the difficulties she had in life and it made me think. Why do some of us constantly focus on our difficulties, while some look to lift others up? Why did Cyrenne find comfort in service and love to others while her own difficulties where at times unbearable? My life will be forever changed by this sweet example of how to live life. Her loss is difficult for us to bear, especially Ronnie, but now her pain is gone. Thank you Cyrenne for living each day and finding as much happiness as you could find. As you watch today’s clip evaluate your own life. Are you a Cyrenne always looking to find good when there is so much bad around you, or is it easy for you to find bad when so much good is around you?

the-only-lost-cause-is-one-we-give-up-on-before-we-enter-the-struggle-quote-1

Often times we ALL feel like we are lost….. Part of growth and development is being challenged.. Growth cannot happen unless we have resistance…… When you feel lost or not where you want to be, THAT is the time to get excited and know you are about to make a breakthrough…… BUT…. BUT… you cannot sit on your hind end and WAIT to get out of the fog….. If you change your attitude and DECIDE it’s time to become courageous and go to WORK….. Going through the struggle will pull out of you GREATNESS… You will look back and say “that time” of darkness was necessary for you becoming you….. Embrace every moment of your life and realize you are never a lost cause….you might be lost for a moment but in the end you will find yourself and inspire others to find themselves..

dont-be-upset-by-the-results-you-didnt-get-with-the-work-you-didnt-do

I am always amazed at the amount of success literature….. It’s all around us and it does help… It’s essential to know where you want to go….It’s necessary to have that positive attitude….YES YES these things are important. But what do you think the MOST important thing is YOU can do to succeed????? Over the past few years we have been fed the mantra of “think it, and it will happen”……. NOTHING will EVER HAPPEN unless you, yes YOU DECIDE to WORK….. I will say it again NOTHING WILL EVER HAPPEN unless YOU WORK…. You can read all the literature, you can go to all the seminars, you can visualize your dream house, dream car, dream spouse…… until you are blue in the face and NOTHING will happen until you WORK….. Take time to watch today’s clip and start spending the time you are dreaming……WORKING…

Dr. Mark Benden from Texas A&M has done extensive research on why sitting is killing us. Dr. Benden has done extensive studies on children and the classroom. How sitting creates so many negatives. I have featured many times the dangers of sitting. We are a SITTING world…. We sit to drive, sit to work, sit to text, sit to email, sit to eat, sit.sit.sit.sit……. We must get up. The easiest way to do this is by converting your office desk to a stand up desk. Watch today’s short clip and see how it’s not only effecting you, but your children. You will be amazed after a few weeks how much better you begin to feel.

I love today’s video….. Why do you think you are not where you think you should be????? Really think about it??? I am going to tell you something you probably don’t want to hear… You are not where you think you should be BECAUSE…… You haven’t had enough PAIN…. What you say, “I have had pain”…. Not ENOUGH… The number one reason many people are not succeeding is because they have been given too much from infancy on…. You were born, had a nice home, always had clothes, always had food, at 16 you got a car, didn’t have to work, never paid your phone bill, never paid for ANYTHING……. This is a tough pill to swallow for both the parent and the child. As parents we all suffer from the same disease… We love our children and THINK that by giving more we show that love and want your life to be better than our own….. The problem is by giving we are handicapping your life….. Now, don’t go out and blame your parents because they gave you too much and now you are sitting in a position in life you don’t like. Realize that in order for you to become all you can become the pain you are feeling is the fuel to work harder, become more desperate, fear nothing……Go to WORK now. If you need any fuel for the fire watch today’s clip….

The Daily Echo: The Value of Being Disliked….. September 19, 2016

Do-You-Like-Me

WHAT you say????? There is value in being disliked???? YEP… Now wait and listen. I am not saying to go out of your way to be disliked. Don’t go out and disagree and find fault so others will dislike you. I am saying to be PRINCIPLE Centered!!!! Yes let principles dictate your behavior. In the world we live in now you will find many people trying to cut things short… Trying to get something for nothing…. Trying to sow without planting, basically trying to jump off a cliff and hope gravity doesn’t exist. Remember if you approach life with LOVE you may be disliked by others but they will know your heart is always in the right place. If you continue to allow others acceptance drive your daily actions you are no better than the ventriloquist “dummy”…. BE YOU…. BE YOU….. BE YOU……. Nobody is better than YOU… Don’t Be afraid to be that person.. Watch Robin today and see why this is critical.

fireside

On today’s echo I present a small sample of what the BYU Football team does multiple times during the season. This is a short clip of a fireside in Laie, Hawaii. You see as much as BYU cares about football, they care much more about life…. In a world where wins and loses seems to be the headline of every news cast where are we highlighting the wins of charity, love, compassion, devotion, morality, honesty, and the list goes on. I am so thankful that I was taught these principles and hope by sharing this today you will get a small glimpse into what really matters.
