takeaway #1 - John Lennon was right "Life is what happens to you while you are making other plans".. who could predict that path? takeaway #2 - education is the most awesome force for life-transformation. Always make the investment in your own training/learning/education (this does NOT have to mean a formal college degree! - lots of ways to keep growing in training& education that don't include that path!!) takeaway #3 - advocating for todays workers is the most fun and rewarding yet! Hang in there - if you are making your way through your own journey... the best may just be yet to come (even when you can't quite see through to it quite yet).
So, what's your path?
I'm telling you the truth...(You can make it, if you try!)
THOUGHT LIFE: People don't fail because they're not smart. No, no, no, no, no! They generally fail because they don't know how; or they taken the time to established their goals, motivated by sentimental desires and then, driven by a PLAN.
SITUATION: Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Suzie Orman and other successful actors, athletes, educators and entertainers know this. That's why they are successful because they've developed a simple PLAN that works for them and through them that delivers success.
TAKE ACTION: Your PLAN should include...
1) What is your passion in life? 2) What do you really want to do in life? 3) How can I become that bridge for others to cross? 4) What is the ROI where I can implement a positive change?
YOU CAN SUCCEED IN LIFE? Everything begins with a simple PLAN.
I Believe You Can...! /s/ Mr. Encouragement
