Always A Way

One thing I believe is if you want to do something, there is usually a way. We know that there will always be blockades. And, sometimes, from a distance, they look like the Himalayas. Yet when we get closer, they seem to diminish in size; and when you are standing right next to them and start to move over them, they may be nothing more than molehills.

We often have a problem where we look at something far off and determine it is just too hard to accomplish. And then, something that could be good for a lot of people does not get done. You are also stuck. You did not get to move forward because of a thought.  You thought a major Problem (the mountain) stood in your way. A prime lesson in life is not to talk yourself out of what you desire most to do in life.

Believe it or not, you have people around you who care. Everybody does. And these excellent and caring people do not want you to suffer or face bad results, therefore, they will do their best to talk you out of things they do not believe are in your interest. Your job is to find out what your desires are and to keep moving towards them. Do not think ill of others; they are only looking at you through their beliefs and desires. You must look at the world through your own.

Can I guarantee you there are no barriers, big or small, in the way of wherever you want to go?  Of course not. You can make that determination when you are there. You can also find a guide or two to show you the trails and how to get to your goal. Can I tell you exactly how to get to your destination? I do not think so. Unless you are walking where I have been, that would be hard. I can help you with the tools you will need. And, I can tell you this, often things are not as difficult as perceived once you get to work on them.

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.
