Wearing a Badge

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016

No ContactWearing a badge gives us rights. For those in the workforce some people have the right to hand out decisions and deliver mandates and if it weren’t for the work they do would not have the power to do this.

The reality is that one day those who have badges will give them up. Usually giving up the badge is done with grace and willingness knowing it is time to take it off. Other times termination forces people to relinquish the badge.

Once badge wearers are among the general population they lose authority but gain freedom from the responsibility that goes along with wearing a badge.

They themselves may run into resistance when they need help or are trying to help someone else.

If this happens it is tempting to let the people in charge know from where you’ve come as it might help but then again it might not.

For those still wearing badges do so with dignity and honor.

Be kind patient and respectful toward others.

Remember that once you lose your badge there may just come a day when you have to fight like hell to be heard.

Can’t Win Without Losing

Monday, March 21st, 2016

Winning is great, sure, but if you are really going to do something in life, the secret is learning how to lose. Nobody goes undefeated all the time. If you can pick up after a crushing defeat, and go on to win again, you are going to be a champion some day. Wilma Rudolph

If at First You Don’t Succeed

If at first you don’t succeed

If at second you don’t succeed

If at third you don’t succeed

If at fourth you don’t succeed

If at fifth you don’t succeed

Reevaluate your strategy

You are likely very close but just missing one or

two key elements that will help you move forward.

At the brink of failure things often turn around

You will never know if you quit.

Quitting puts a period where there might have been an exclamation

point.

Life is full of periods.

We have to fight for our exclamation points.

Don’t give up!
