The “SUCCESS SHIP” epitomizes what I have tried to be about during my professional career. The GAME OF LIFE is the most difficult game any of us will ever play in. There are no time-outs or substitutions. You're calling the signals and you have four awesome teammates: Faith, Courage, Loyalty and Dedication. You should work hard the develop the SUCCESS SHIP’s “ULTIMATE SUCCESS QUALITIES” and challenge yourself to constantly achieve at your highest levels. Handle your adversity and make it fertilizer for your next success. The GOAL has to be EXCELLENCE!!! Become the best YOU possible!!!!
I believe life is a special gift that God has bestowed upon you and me. Of all the complex, mysterious and beautiful things in the universe, it is my opinion that human life is the most precious of all God’s creations. With this gift, it is our responsibility to reach for the fulfillment of the potential God has put within us. This shows itself in many ways; as a brother, friend, father, husband, teacher, coach, etc.
I am driven from within to strive for excellence and as I learn more about this great human experience of “reaching upward,” I want to share it with others, particularly the people I'm privileged to work with.
I see nothing particularly easy about this life, but rather satisfaction and enjoyment through achievements and relationships. Obstacles, difficulties, disappointments and most of all, challenges are put before us for growth and development. The people who learn to tap those great sources available to us all, but known to a relative few, are the ones who turn those obstacles, difficulties, disappointments and challenges into great personal victories.
As I stand in front of each audience, I am judged. But more importantly, I see myself as I truly am. If there is a difference between these two perceptions, then it becomes a demand for growth on my part with self-respect as the award, I will be the person my audience believes me to be.
As I challenge and inspire others to grow and develop, I will commit to even greater personal efforts to do the same. I can never ask others to take risks I would not take. I will live my life fully and courageously as I cross from solid ground into the unknown. I will report, truthfully, the failures and successes of these adventures. I will be seen as both vulnerable and tenacious in these growth-producing experiences.
Each time I speak, I offer to my audiences a small portion of the life that has made me what I am today. For that same reason, I, therefore, hold any other speaker’s material as sacred, for it not only comes from the fabric of his or her own life but is delivered from the heart. I refuse to divert any one of these special and precious creations to my audience as though they were my own, lest I be withdrawing from an account to which I have made no deposits.
By virtue of the fact that I have the privilege of standing in front of a gathering of eager human minds, I will never forget that I wield the awesome, God-given power to influence the way people think. It is a responsibility that I refuse to take lightly. With truth as the foundation, I commit to continued improvement of these communication skills.
Here and now, I pledge a renewed intensity to each speech that I make. I will deliver each message as though this was my last opportunity to share what I have learned thus far in life. I will then know as I step down from each succeeding platform that that was my best effort-ever.
To be GREAT and achieve YOUR own success in life, YOU must begin YOUR journey with an UNSHAKABLE confidence in YOUR own abilities. Whether others believe in YOU or not, YOU must believe in YOU!!! No one, I mean NO ONE, can make YOU feel inferior without YOUR consent … YOUR destiny will not be determined by circumstances or the opinions of others; YOUR destiny will be determined solely by YOUR own analysis of YOURSELF and what YOU believe YOU can do. GREAT people have chosen to ignore the naysayers and instead they buy into GOD’S view of them! What do YOU believe? YOUR brain is the GREATEST computer that WILL EVER BE CREATED! USE it, SHARPEN it, FEED it with POSITIVE THOUGHTS and create the world YOU want. THINK BIG!! AND WHEN YOU GET TIRED,
A DAY OFF
This is a great place to add a tagline.
So, you want the day off? Let’s take a look at what you are asking for ….
There are 365 days per year available for work. There are 52 weeks per year in which you already have 2 days off per week, leaving 261 days available for work. Since you spend 16 hours each day away from work, you have used up 170 days, leaving only 91 days available. You spend 30 minutes each day on coffee break. That accounts for 23 days each year, leaving only 68 days available. With a 1-hour lunch period each day, you have used up another 46 days, leaving only 22 days available for work. You normally spend 2 days per year on sick leave. This leaves you only 20 days available for work. We are off for 5 holidays per year, so your available working time is down to 15 days. We generously give you 14 days of vacation per year which leaves only 1 day available for work and I’ll be darned if you’re going to take that day off!
