“Be thankful, just don’t be done”

You see these billionaire baller stories and feel “less than” in comparison to them.

You have the same advantage billionaires have…

NOW

The only difference between them & you is they treat NOW as a verb & you look at “when” as a noun.

“When” I get the gym membership…

“When” I get a raise…

“When” I get the supervisor position…

“When” I rebuild my credit…

“When I get to _____, then I’ll Win”

We wait for “when” while they work their NOW.

NOW is the great equalizer…but you have a PLUS 1…

Your deficit…because you find yourself in 25th place you have to learn to fight to get to 1rst. And because you fought, you can handle whatever else comes your way.

Most people don’t know how to fight…they slide from 25th to 100th and justify their position by saying “At least I’m in the top 100.”

Be thankful just don’t be done.

Stay in The Sales Life 💪

When I was always the last person to be chosen for a pickup game of football or basketball, I was not thankful…

When I was told I was too small to play college football, I was not thankful…

When I was told by my parents that they didn’t have a grandson because he was bi-racial, I was not thankful…

When I was married, then divorced, and left to raise my son alone, I was not thankful…

When I could only watch my son eat because there wasn’t enough money for two, I was not thankful…

When I had to plead with the repo man to give me a few days to come up with the late payments, I was not thankful…

When I told my future wife that I was broke and busted and could only offer a better future, I was not thankful…

When I was passed up for a promotion, I was not thankful…

When the economy crushed the auto industry, I was not thankful…

When I was demoted, I was not thankful…

When I received Notice to Foreclose on my very first home, I was not thankful…

When I had to declare bankruptcy because I was always living for today, I was not thankful…

When I could no longer shower my wife and kids with lavish gifts and impromptu vacations-bribing them because I was always working, I was not thankful…

When I was running from my problems and in the 11th hour of losing my family, I was not thankful…

When you’re the last one to be picked, told you are not good enough, abandoned, too tired to cry, turned away, passed up, told to sit down, and broke, that’s where the thankfulness begins. When you are in the eye of your personal storm it’s all unfair-every bit of it is unjust. It can’t, won’t, and doesn’t make sense.  But in time, it will.

If it were not for all of those painful, non-thankful moments-moments where you were barely holding on by a thread, there would be nothing to be thankful for.

You endured and triumphed…thankfully.
