Friday Fuel! Learn Patience

Happy Friday!

Sharing some good vibes and positive energy with you on this Friday in your life. It’s one day of many and it will have come and gone before you know it – make the most of every moment!

Before moving on in this message, take a moment to WATCH THIS VIDEO CLIP!

One of our Friday Fuel readers shared this video with me last week and it is simply gold. I had to share with the group and encourage you to take the time (17 minutes!) to watch and listen to the full video. Simon Sinek shares a powerful perspective on Millennials but I think it applies to any generation. Watch and share!

Simon’s comments are clearly referring to the Millennial generation (which I am!) but I think regardless of generation, we are all guilty of being impatient and too heavily relying on technology. Our culture breeds the need for instant gratification and whether you were born in 1956 or 1986, we are all surrounded by this cultural attitude of “NOW” that influences how we think and act. 12-months ago, I literally said the words that Simon Sinek references in his video – “I think I need a new job – I don’t feel like I am making an impact here”. I was overlooking the mountain, the journey, the climb and focused only on the top of the summit and this abstract concept of “impact”.  I learned over the last year that patience is everything.

Every day, every interaction, every moment in life is a part of your journey and important to the process. I was focused on the future, the next step, the next job and neglecting to acknowledge where I was here and now. When we do that, we miss out on all of the opportunity right in front of us. Where you are at this very moment is where you are meant to be and there is a purpose, a learning experience and an opportunity to grow right in front of you – you just have to open your eyes and see the potential of here and now.

“My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never miss me, and that what misses me was never meant for me.” – Imaum Al Shafi’i

Chumlee is patiently waiting for me to snap his weekly glamour shot. Love that mug!
