The Monday Morning Memo July 10th

Education & Training with SendOutCards-Appreciation Marketing Expert


Welcome to this edition of The Monday Morning Memo.....I hope you had a fabulous weekend.  Today is a new day and the start of a new week. The past is behind us and will stay there unless we bring it into the future.  Let us focus on walking forward and bring the experience and knowledge we have learned so far with us. Let us leave the problems of the past behind us and open our eyes and hearts to all the wonderful things that await. Let us start today with a clean slate and let us all be the sculptor of our futures.  The decisions that we will face in the future will not always be easy choices.  I trust you will face these decisions and choices head on, and always remember that you are in full control over what you do and how you do it. Let us make the most of our lives - time is ticking away right now!
One day, two frogs were enjoying the day in the barn when they accidentally fell into the farmer's bucket of cream, and they couldn't get out. The two frogs kept swimming around to keep from drowning, and every once in a while they would try to climb out, but this was becoming very tiring.
One frog kept saying, "This is useless, we should just give up." But the other frog just ignored the comment and kept swimming. Finally, the pessimistic frog gave up and drowned. The other frog was sad at the loss of his friend, but he wasn't going to give up. He kept swimming and swimming, and, finally, the cream turned into butter and the frog simply climbed out.

This story shows that even if we stumble and others try to pull us down, we got to keep on swimming because, eventually, the cream will turn into butter and we'll make it out of the pail.
You have 2 choices now:
1) Do something with what you just read.
2) Ignore what you just read.
Where you begin doesn't matter. Your willingness to start is what counts.

The longer we dwell on our misfortunes, the greater is their power to harm us.
Begin with the end in mind.

Great lesson here:

Even if we stumble and others try to pull us down, we got to keep on swimming because, eventually, the cream will turn into butter and we'll make it out of the pail.
