Between Rocks and Hard Places

If you’re human you’ve probably, at some point, felt like you were trapped between a “rock and a hard place”… quite a few times.  I would like to bring to your attention though that if you have been between rocks and hard places before, and dug yourself out to twll the tale,  there is a high    possibility that you have developed some proficiency, nay a talent, for difging and climbing out from under rocks. So, the next time you feel trapped under a challenging experience, allow yourself to be reminded that you’ve been schooled in rising from under “rocks and hard places.” You have the scars (medals, trophies, awards and degrees) to prove it. There is nothing too hard for you. You got this!! #spiritspeaks @JayeMcken

Pizza Love and Real Love

“People use the word ‘love’ a lot of different ways. Take me, for instance. I am often heard saying that I love my mom and dad. I am also often heard saying that I love pizza. What am I saying when I say I love my mom and dad? I’m saying that I care about them. I’m saying that I love spending time with them and that I talk to them every chance I get. I’m saying that if they needed me, I would do every humanly possible to help them. I’m saying that I always want what’s best for them. What am I saying when I say I love pizza? Am I saying that I care deeply about pizza? Am I saying that I have a relationship with pizza? Am I saying that if pizza had a  problem, I would be there for the pizza? (What? Not enough pepperoni? I’ll be right there!) Of course not. When I say I love pizza, I’m just saying that I enjoy eating pizza until I don’t want any more pizza. Once I’m tired of the pizza, I don’t care what happens to the rest of it. I’ll throw it away. I’ll feed it to the dog. I’ll stick it in the back of the refrigerator until it gets all green and moldy. It doesn’t matter to me anymore. These are two very different definition of the word ‘love’. It gets confusing when people start talking about love, and especially about loving you. Which way do these people love you? Do they want what is best for you, or do they just want you around because it is good for them, and they don’t really care what happens to you? Next time someone looks deeply into your eyes and says ‘I love you’, look very deeply right back and say, ‘Would that be pizza love, or the real thing?”

Life School

Technology has created a gazillion entrepreneurs and specialists… many of whom are stuck on YouTube and Facebook. If you think you have a talent. Develop it. Hone your craft. No one was born a genius, a specialist or an expert. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. You’ll know you’re growing when, before you take the next step, you feel very afraid.

“Dreams…

SettingGoals

“Don’t share your dreams with everyone. Unless it is that you need help in holding yourself accountable to complete that which you said you would. Our friends don’t always catch the vision. They dont always understand. And unless we are confident ourselves, we risk being talked out of our plans.” @JayeMcKen on Goals
