The Farmer & The Donkey – Take A Step Up!

posted by The MEGA Coach

 

One day a farmer’s donkey fell down into a well.
The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally he decided the animal was old, the well needed to be covered up anyway and it just wasn’t worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.
They each grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly.
Then, to everyone’s amazement, he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well,
and was astonished at what he saw.

As every shovel of dirt hit his back, the donkey did something amazing.
He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer’s neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal,
he would shake it off and take a step up. 

Pretty soon, everyone was amazed, as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off.

The Moral:
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt.
The trick is to shake it off and take a step up.
Each of our troubles is a stepping-stone.

We can get out of the deepest wells by not stopping and never giving up!

Shake it off and take a step up!

TEAMwork – Together Everyone Achieves More

posted by The MEGA Coach

Success is the sum of all of your efforts.
No matter how good you are by yourself,

You can achieve greater success with a team.

A team will always outperform any individual because of synergy.
Having more people, perspectives and creativity working on the same project will yield a superior result.

Who is on your team?
Do you consciously create teams and teamwork around you?

Do you acknowledge, recognize and appreciate your teammates and their contribution to your success?  Do you make it fun and worthwhile for people to be on your team?

No matter how wonderful life is on your own, it is even more incredible when you can share it with others.  Can you remember a time when someone helped you or when you needed a friend?

Look at the teamwork that it requires to bring a child into this world.
There is a saying that it takes a village to raise a child.

Have fun with your team.
Let them know how much you care.
Acknowledge, recognize and appreciate the contribution they make.

from my sweet honey…..

GUIDANCE
When I meditated on the word guidance, I kept seeing “dance” at the end of the word. 
I remember reading that doing God’s will is a lot like dancing.  In dancing, when two
people try to lead, nothing feels right.  The movement does not flow with the music,
and everything is quite uncomfortable and jerky.

When one person relaxes and lets the other person lead, both bodies begin to
flow with the music.  One gives gentle cues, perhaps with a nudge to the back
or by pressing lightly in one direction or another.  It is as if two become one body,
moving beautifully.  The dance takes surrender, willingness, and attentiveness
from one person and gentle guidance and skill from the other. 

When I saw “G,” I thought of God, followed by “U” and “I” dance.  God, you
and I dance.  This statement is what guidance means to me.  I became willing
to trust that I would get guidance about my life.  Once again, I became willing
to let God lead.

True love and relationship is like a dance.  There is a rhythm and music along
with a natural giving and receiving.  When one surrenders and let’s go, there
is true union and oneness.  There is unconditional love.

May you find this beauty and joy in your love and relationships.

May you see God in each other.
Happy Valentine’s Day!

My Great Uncle Lennie – A Sweet Gift!

posted by The MEGA Coach


My Great Uncle Lennie – 9/2011

“Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.”

Sir James Barrie

There are special people who grace our lives and enrich us.
They make the world a better place.
They have huge, unconditionally loving hearts.
You just feel better when they are around.

This describes my Uncle Lennie.
I was blessed to have him in my life for 54 years.
He passed away on Saturday, February 11th at 94 years old.

Over all the years, Uncle Lennie would talk about his brother, Albert who died very young.
Uncle Lennie consistently acknowledged Albert and included him in his entire life.
He would share how much he loved and missed him.  It is remarkable that Albert passed away on February 11th well over seventy years ago and this is the very day that Uncle Lennie went too.  God is always in charge.

Going back to my earliest memories, I can see Uncle Lennie with a smile on his face.
He loved to be with his family and he loved people.
He was just a good soul and practiced The Golden Rule like his older sister, my Grandma Yvette – they were cut from the same cloth.

Uncle Lennie always loved being with our family.
He sincerely loved spending time with my older brother, Neil and I.
He would take us places and do things for us and make sure that we had a great time.
Most importantly, Uncle Lennie always took the time to make sure that we knew how much he loved us.  He wanted to be with us, it brought him such joy that it was contagious.

It was the little things, the simple things that showed how wonderful a person Uncle Lennie was.
He did whatever he could do to share a smile, a joke, make you laugh and make you feel good.
He said nice things to people because he wanted to.  He helped people.
When Uncle Lennie spoke about other people, even relatives that were having a tough time, he did it with love and respect.  Technically, Uncle Lennie was my Great Uncle, but in reality Uncle Lennie was a Great Uncle because he was a great person.

As we grew older, Uncle Lennie would talk to us about life, offer his support and advice and share his experience.  Yet, he never did it in a way that made you feel less than or spoken down to.  I always felt nurtured.  We would talk about life and business in the later years and he always focused about what was most important – family and following proper principles.  Being a good person, helping others, honesty, integrity, making your family proud and quality service.  These were subjects we talked about often.  Even when we talked about business and making money he always reminded me about doing it the right way. 

In the Jewish culture there is an expression that best describes Uncle Lennie – he was a mensch!
He was a sincere, caring and responsible person.
I am a better person because of him and proud of the man that he became.
We all could use an Uncle Lennie in our lives.
Our world is a better place because of him.

God bless Uncle Lennie.
May every family have one!

hugs,
:) Lee

Uncle Lennie's 90th Birthday with his sweet sister, my Grandma Yvette (100)

“Was he a short man Megee?, not at’all, not at’all!”

Keep Looking Up
A wise man shared with me, “Sometimes God puts you on your back so you can look up.” At times, life shows up with challenges.  The key is how to receive it - do we allow it, accept it and welcome it as our next mission or the next thing to learn and experience? The world is facing its t
