Sometimes we complain that each day is like the one before it, and the one that will come next. Fortunately, this is true only If we allow it to be. It is up to us to make each day, hour, and minute what we want of it.

We can often find ourselves trapped as we do now with Covid-19. Covid-19 is deadly. Other trappings could be financial or weather-related. They could be caused by people around us or those dear to us.

Yet, we are in control. We control what we want to do and how we want to do it. We cannot control anyone else, nor can others control us. Whatever others think of us is none of our business.

If we want to change our days to better ventures or at least better than what we think we have now, we need to start with the person in the mirror. What is that person doing to make each day better? What organization or planning has the mirror person put into place to do what they want to do?

And yet, No one is an island. No one person lives completely alone. We are all inter-dependent, one upon the other.

If the person in our story has other people, people they care for, or care for them, where those other people ask for input? If the people do not wish to provide feedback, that’s up to them. At least they were offered a voice and choice.

Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
