Working My Way to the Top:

Making a Difference
I don't know where life meets you today. I don't know if it is at a job you like, or one you don't. I don't know if you are in sync with life, or out of sync. I don't know if life seems to have left you behind, or you have left a life behind.

It really does not matter where life is meeting you today, the principles are still the same. The change not. They are universal, eternal truths, guaranteed to work, by Heaven.

It is not your job that makes you rich it is the attitude you bring every day to that job that marks you out. That is what makes a man rich or poor.

And, it does not matter your starting point. Whether you start in the glass office, or out in the street, it is all a matter of time. Time, the leveler of all things, will shake you out to where you belong. Whether out in the street or in the greater comfort of the glass offices, with additional appendages.

Only one thing will determine, and make it all worth the while. And, it is called attitude.

As, Konstantin Stanislavski so famously said, "There are no small parts, only small actors.” That is people who have been made small by their attitude, their disposition to what life has served them.

And, I am not in any way saying this is easy. I sure don't write easy stuff. I write because it is true. And, I have been doing this long enough to know only to write on eternal truths, not time-bound, situational truths.

I write this not because it is easy, but only because it is an eternal, unshakeable, Heaven guaranteed truth.

Yes, it might be a bitter pill to swallow, depending on where life has presently shaken you to. It sure is much easier bearing the burden at a much younger age. Things are easier done in their seasons, than out of season. There is no denying that fact.

Fortunately, or unfortunately, life is not lived backward. It is only lived forward. And, like my native people will say, "Anytime you wake up is your morning." There is no use crying over spilled milk.

You just need to pick yourself up from where ever you presently are and keep on pushing. Keep on living. Keep on applying the lessons learned. Keep on growing. Keep on getting better at your craft. Keep on expanding. Keep on reaching more and more people.

You are getting closer and closer to the promised land. Your milk and honey are flowing towards you. You are being beautified. You are being endowed. You are being glorified. Your angels are bringing in the answers to your prayers.

Only keep doing your own part with gratitude and faith.
