Today was the Worst Day Ever (post from Kirk Weisler)

good_day_or_bad_day_tn-262239

Today was the absolute worst day ever

And don’t try to convince me that

There’s something good in every day

Because, when you take a closer look,

This world is a pretty evil place.

Even if

Some goodness does shine through once in a while

Satisfaction and happiness don’t last.

And it’s not true that

It’s all in the mind and heart

Because

True happiness can be obtained

Only if one’s surroundings are good

It’s not true that good exists

I’m sure you can agree that

The reality

Creates

My attitude

It’s all beyond my control

And you’ll never in a million years hear me say that

Today was a good day.

Now read from bottom to top.

(Poem by 11th grader Ronnie Joice)

This poem is a great reminder to me to reverse my perspective when I start feeling negative.  I love the fact that when it is read in reverse, I am reading it UP!  It’s always better to look up.  It’s always better to be climbing, growing, reaching, and rising UP.  If you’d like, you can watch an inspiring reverse poem video here.  Old one but good one.

I hope YOU are having a wonderful summer.  Lead on,

Kirk Out.

Attitudes Towards Life

butterflies

“What many people don’t realize is that we can change our attitudes towards life. It takes some work, but it can be done. The more we accept other people and their faults and quirks, the less judgmental we become. The more we decide to share the goodness that’s within us, the less selfish we become, and the less likely we are to hoard or hang on to material things. The more we learn about other people’s emotional or physical problems, the more understanding and compassionate we become. Your attitude is one of your gifts to the world, all day, every day. What kind of gift do you give? And is it a gift that remains steady no matter what happens to you?”- Tom Walsh

Don’t “Dis” Your Ability (post from Kirk Weisler)

“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.” –Zig Zigler

When we play at being less than who we are… who we really know we can be…. and stop short of giving our all, doing are best and yes, even going that “exrta mile”…we “dis” our ability.  We dis-honor it, our name, our reputation, our integrity… we cripple our character and even our workplace culture.

There are all kinds of things that can knock us down… physically, emotionally and even spiritually.  But there are also all kinds of things that can help us to get back up.  Friends, books, tapes, service, forgiveness, goals, determination and a willingness to recommit ourselves to being and becoming our very best.  (YES IT WILL BE HARD)  But not nearly as hard as just sitting there feeling sorry for ourselves and dissing the abilities that we have been given…by focusing on what we feel isn’t right, isn’t working properly or doesn’t seem to be there at all.

Zig is right… “You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.”  so Don’t DIS it.

“Response-Abilty” (from Kirk Weisler)

In response to last week’s post “Responsibility & Meaning of Life” came this response from Wendy.

 I look at the kids coming out of school right now (ages 18-24) and wonder what happened to teaching accountability… I hate to see our workplace in 10-15 years with the lack of accountability that they have – they are just in a “I don’t care” attitude all the time, it’s heart breaking some days. They don’t get that their performance, attitude, taking care of their customer – all equals their pay check. Their attitude is “oh well, if you fire me I will just go somewhere else and be mediocre there”

While I personally see these attitudes and attributes in a much wider demographic than ages 18-24… I share her concern with the future of any society that doesn’t succeed in teaching accountability(and living it).

So the question before us is this – “What is the best way to teach personal responsibility?

Daniel Burns from Australia posted a comment on Kirk’s FB page that led him to his FB page …and to this photo.  It was cool enough and true enough that I was hoping that it might serve as an expression of thanks from me to you

We were created to be loved.  Things were created to be used.  The reason why the world is in chaos is that things are being loved and people are being used.

So let nothing or NO-thing create chaos in your life.  Do what you were created to do… love and lead…and lead with love.
