Three kinds of people

Marcus Everett - Wednesday, September 18, 2019

A short BUT to the point message today….  Inspired by John M. Richardson, Jr.

 

"When it comes to the future, there are three kinds of people: those who let it happen, those who make it happen, and those who wonder what happened."
John M. Richardson, Jr.

 

Which group do you relate most too?  It’s never too late change if the current group you relate to isn’t getting you where you want to be.

A Japanese Folktale - The House of 1000 Mirrors

Heather Frame - Wednesday, September 11, 2019

Long ago in a small, far away village, there was a place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors.  A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit.  

 

When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house.  He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could.

 

To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his.  

 

He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly.

 

As he left the house, he thought to himself, "This is a wonderful place.  I will come back and visit it often."

In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house.

 

He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door.

 

When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him.

 

As he left, he thought to himself, "That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again."

All the faces in the world are mirrors.  What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?

Who Do You Trust?

Marcus Everett - Wednesday, September 04, 2019

Who do you trust?

 

Family members, friends, team members?  

 

What organizations, businesses, companies have your trust?

What level of trust do these people and groups of people have?

Would you leave your child with them?  Would you trust them to keep secret the most juicy piece of gossip?  Would you trust them to sell your largest asset?

Have they always had your trust or have they had to prove they were worthy of it?

In a business sense, who trusts you?

Would your team members trust you with sensitive information?

Are you the type of person people know can be relied upon to get a job done?


Do your clients trust you (really trust you) or do they simply deal with you?
