Honor!

The word for today is Honor!

When I think about honor I think about a ceremony where someone gets recognized for his loyal, creative and courageous service.

I think about applauses, medals and several speeches to honor the person worth of this recognition.

This is good but there is more.

For me honor is a daily attitude of people of integrity who in spite of the fact that they are recognized or not, , do the right things with discipline and faithfulness.

They do it not for recognition but because they are passionate about the principles that lease their life, regardless of their personal recognition.

When a few years back Italian music writer Ennio Morricone ( author of all the spaghetti western movies like the good, the bad and the ugly and many more ) received the academy award in LA FOR HIS CAREER , he said:

I want to dedicate this Oscar to the many musicians who deserve it but will never get it!

That’s it! Honor is not a recognition but a daily attitude displayed by the real heroes of everyday life.

To sum it up, honor is not what others say and show you but WHAT YOU KNOW YOU REALLY ARE!

Are you a real hero worth of honor or someone looking for honor to become a hero?

May this question sink down strong in our daily actions.

Success belongs to ALL!

A life can be altered if our attitude changes.

We are what we think.

If we think we are an accident of nature we will live without a clear orientation.

If instead, we think we have been programmed for a purpose created specifically for us we will find the way to go on in life with courage and authority!

Just as the birds were programmed to fly and the fish to live in the water, you and I were programmed to successfully achieve our goal.

Luck can accelerate success but it cannot create it. In fact, luck helps the brave!

Follow your passions, find your purpose and with your success, you will find the true meaning of your existence.

Today your destiny is crying out your name. Decide now and answer to fulfill the unique mission entrusted to you!

Do not stop at success though!

Success may not give you value and meaning if achieved only for personal and self-centered reasons.

The meaning and substance of a life is found ONLY when our success ADDS VALUE TO OTHERS!

Success gives you in return a career that will be soon forgotten BUT the VALUE and the SIGNIFICANCE of a life, is a CALL that will never be forgotten!

Clarity!

The word for today is Clarity!

We can live without certainties but we can not live without clarity.

If our vision is nebulous and opaque, it becomes difficult to have the determination necessary to live with enthusiasm and positivity.

To be clear you need to have the knowledge of the BIG picture, of the complete PHOTO of what we want to achieve!

To be successful in the career we have chosen, in the relationships we are building, in the vision we want to share with others, in the obstacles we want to overcome, we must be clear that it is mandatory to clearly know the big picture!

In my high school years, one of my favorite subjects was math. In my homework I was a champion! My secret was to read and reread the problem and identify the point of arrival.

On the contrary, my other companions immediately answered the various questions of the problem, trying to solve it in an inductive and not in a deductive way.

Clarity lies in identifying the point of arrival and ONLY THEN start to solve the problem!

As in a puzzle, it makes no sense to put the pieces together if FIRST you do not know the complete and clear figure of the finished puzzle!

If you want to face each day successfully, always have clear the goal you want to achieve and then take the right and correct steps that lead you to the goal!

Live today in the light of what you want to become tomorrow because the clear projection of what you want to achieve is the secret of a life worth living!

I hope I was clear 🙂

Involvement!

The word for today is Involvement!

Most people like to participate from outside and enter the game only when they think they are sure to win.

Everyone knows the famous words of lawyers that when they win a cause they say WE WON, but if they lose they say YOU LOST!I

I remember once at the stadium a spectator who, while eating a giant sandwich and drinking at least one liter of Coca Cola, criticized the players who, according to him, did not give the best of themselves.

I was tempted to take off the giant sandwich and the Coca Cola bottle and tell him to enter the field and show all his agonism!

Everyone criticizes and gives advice spitting judgments!

It’s easy to criticize when you are not involved first-person!

Keep in mind that trophies are not won on the bench but on the playing field.

Leave your spectator seat and embrace your involvement because each one of us has an important role to play in the race of our life!
