Have a Magnificent Day!

The Seed

posted by The MEGA Coach

For Jerome, our sweet son….inspiration from my mother:

 A successful businessman was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business.

Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different.  He gathered the young executives in his company.  He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO.  I have decided to choose one of you. ”

The executives were shocked.  The boss continued “I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one special SEED.  I want you to plant it, water it, and come back one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you.  I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.”

One man, Jim, went home and excitedly told his wife the story.  She got a pot, soil and helped plant the seed.  Everyday, he’d water it and watch to see if it had grown.

After a few weeks, the executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow.

Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew.  Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing.  By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have a plant and he felt like a failure.

Six months went by – nothing. Jim knew he killed his seed.  Everyone had plants and trees…he had nothing.  Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however.  He just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – He so wanted the seed to grow.

A year went by and all the executives brought their plants to the CEO for inspection.  Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot.  But she asked him to be honest about what happened.  Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right.

He took his empty pot to the board room.  When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives.  They were beautiful — in all shapes and sizes.  Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him!

When the CEO arrived, he greeted his executives.

Jim tried to hide in the back.  ”My, what great plants, trees, and flowers you have grown,” said the CEO.

“Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!”

All of a sudden, the CEO saw Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot and ordered Jim to come forward.  Jim was terrified.  He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure!  Maybe he will have me fired!”

When Jim got to the front, the CEO announced, “Behold your next Chief Executive Officer!  His name is Jim!”

Jim couldn’t believe it.  Jim couldn’t even grow his seed.

“How could he be the new CEO?” the others said.

Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed.  I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today.  But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow.

All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers.

When you realized that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you.  Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it.  
Therefore, he is the one who will be the new CEO!”

   * If you plant honesty, you will reap trust

   * If you plant goodness, you will reap friends

   * If you plant humility, you will reap greatness

   * If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment

   * If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective

   * If you plant hard work, you will reap success

   * If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation

   * If you plant faith in God, you will reap a harvest


Be aware of what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.

 

     May this be your best year ever!

     Health, Wealth & Perfect Self-Expression!

       Smiles,

A Real Man & A Real Woman

A Real Man & A Real Woman

A real man is a woman’s best friend.
He will never stand her up and never let her down.
He will reassure her when she feels insecure and comfort her after a bad day.

He will inspire her to do things she never thought she could do;
to live without fear and forget regret.
He will enable her to express her deepest emotions
and give in to her most intimate desires.
He will make sure she always feels as though she’s the most beautiful woman in the room
and will enable her to be confident, sexy, seductive, and invincible.

 

A Real Woman does the same for a real man and empowers him to be the best he can be.
I know this for a fact and my wife, Denise is the biggest reason for my success in all areas of my life.
And let’s remember, God created her just for me and me for her.  We are a perfect fit.

 

It takes two, separate and whole beings to unite and form a true and perfect union.

Each person must give 100% and be there for the other.  It also requires accurate and honest communication.

Each person must be willing to give everything to the other and surrender.  Easier said than done.
When a man puts his partner first and takes care of her, she gives him everything he ever wanted.
It is amazing. 

Make sure that you acknowledge, recognize and appreciate your partner, family and friends for their contributions.

 

Someone sent me the first part of this message.  It is beautiful and I added the second part.  I looked and searched for my divine partner for 38 years and wondered why I could not find the love of my life.  Then it dawned on me that I had this list of what my perfect partner would have.  I realized that for me to attract this in someone else, that it would be wise to be the kind of person who deserved this kind of partner. 

 

I focused on improving me and being a more sincere, caring and nice person.  Shortly later, my honey, Denise showed up and we have been together almost 15 years now.  She fills me with joy and the love of God.  I know that God loves me so much because he sent my honey to me to keep me company on this journey of life.

 

I am thankful for all of my blessings and know that everything in my life flows from my love of God and my love and wonderful relationship with my wife.  Our loves permeates everything  and attracts wonderful things.  Our love overflows onto everything we create.  From this all else follows.

 

I am blessed!

The Fern and the Bamboo

posted by The MEGA Coach

From a good friend:

 

 

When a man decided to quit..

 
One day the man decided to quit…

He quit his job, his relationship, his spirituality… I wanted to quit my life.
He went to the woods to have one last talk with God.
“God”, he said. “Can you give me one good reason not to quit?”

His answer surprised him…
“Look around”, God said. “Do you see the fern and the bamboo?”
“Yes”, he replied.
When I planted the fern and the bamboo seeds, I took very good care of them.
I gave them light. I gave them water.
The fern quickly grew from the earth.
Its brilliant green covered the floor.
Yet nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo.
In the second year the Fern grew more vibrant and plentiful.
And again, nothing came from the bamboo seed.
But I did not quit on the bamboo. God said.
“In the third year, there was still nothing from the bamboo seed. 
But I would not quit. In the fourth year, again, there was nothing from the bamboo seed.
“I would not quit.” God said. “Then in the fifth year a tiny sprout emerged from the earth. 

Compared to the fern it was seemingly small and insignificant…
 
But just 6 months later the bamboo rose to over 100 feet tall.
It had spent the five years growing roots.

Those roots made it strong and gave it what it needed to survive.
I would not give any of my creations a challenge it could not handle.”
God said to man. “Did you know, my child, that all this time you have been struggling, you have actually been growing roots.”

“I would not quit on the bamboo. I will never quit on you.” Don’t compare yourself to others ”
God said. “The bamboo had a different purpose than the fern … Yet, they both make the forest beautiful”
 
Your time will come, “God said to him.” You will rise high! “How high should I rise?” he asked.

How high will the bamboo rise?” God asked in return.
“As high as it can?” he questioned.

“Yes.” God said, “Give me glory by rising as high as you can.”
The man left the forest and brought this story.

A happy and meaningful life requires our continuous input and creativity.
 
It does not happen by chance. It happens because of our choices and actions.
 
And each day we are given new opportunities to choose and act and, in doing so, we create our own unique journey.” Keep going…

 

                                     ********************

HAPPY MOMENTS-PRAISE GOD.
PAINFUL MOMENTS- SEEK GOD.
QUIET MOMENTS -WORSHIP GOD.
DIFFICULT MOMENTS-TRUST GOD.
EVERY MOMENT-THANK GOD.
