Mark’s Minute – January 14, 2015 – Green and Growing or Ripe and Rotten
It’s fun to observe how an important message just repeats itself over and over until received.
Often, the message sings the same song; it’s just delivered in a different tune.
Sometimes the melody may take years to resonate.
For me, a particularly sweet chorus came from multiple soloists in less than a week.
Don Greeson wrote in our first book Finding My Why, Ernie’s Journey that to receive an important message, you need your antennas up.
This week, my antennas were up!
Gigi and I went to see the movie Unbroken.
My son Blaine reminded me of an old saying, “You’re either green and growing or ripe and rotting”.
I read……the only limits I would never overcome are the limits I place on myself.
My buddy John David Mann is working hard to get his new book “Perseverance” published.
I heard my pal Marinos repeat “You’re either growing or you’re dying, they’re ain’t no 3rd direction”.
My good friend Shayne Judd said, “Each year brings a new trip around the Son”.
The message was………..I may be getting older, I might not like the way some things are going, I may get frustrated by how I thought things should have gone…………but……….
Today’s a good day to keep pressing.
Today’s a day to work on something new and exciting.
Today’s a great day to create a terrific opportunity.
Today, I will stay positive and focus on the right things.
Today will be another day that I’ll continue productive habits that many others just don’t choose to do.
Today, I’ll help someone else succeed.
I think I’ll stay green! Why the heck not? How about YOU!?
Smiles, have a GREAT week and Keep on Seeking………Mark
