Scroll number 6 of the great Og Mandino’s “Greatest Salesman in the World” says, “I will be master of my Emotions”….. In today’s echo this short clip highlights the difference between those that move forward and succeed and those that focus sometimes for a lifetime on their emotions. Sacrifice is nothing more than that. Today my oldest brother celebrates another birthday. I have watched in awe seeing the continued sacrifices he has made day after day, week after week, and year after year to become the great man he is today. Has he sacrificed in his life? YES….Has he allowed negative feelings to dominate his actions? Obviously those that know him, know he focusing on things he can control and NEVER allows temporary emotions to dictate who and what he will become. No matter what adversity Troy has ever faced in life, he NEVER allowed his emotions to keep him from moving forward. No matter how big the prize has been in front of him, he has never compromised his integrity to get anything. Troy has done things the old fashioned way….. With Honesty, Integrity, Love, Compassion, Thanks Troy for being the best older brother and mentor a younger brother could have.
