Nate’s Monday Morning Message
Welcome to this edition of Nate’s Monday Morning Message…what a great game last night!!! This morning I looked up the definition for “underdog” and it literally means, “a competitor who has little chance of winning.” I am sure each of you reading this has had a moment in your life when you too have felt like the underdog. But what separates the winners from the losers? Those who go home with the trophy and those who do not? Preparation + mindset + hard work = success. The “underdog” doesn’t have to stay an underdog. What can you do to today to prepare yourself for the big win? Let’s make it a great week!
Do you wish the World were better?
Let me tell you what to do:
Set a watch upon your actions,
Keep them always straight and true.
Rid your mind of selfish motives,
Let your thoughts be clean and high.
You can make a little Eden
Of the sphere you occupy.
Do you wish the World were wiser?
Then suppose you make a start,
By accumulating wisdom
In the scrap book of your heart.
Do not waste one page on folly;
Live to learn and learn to live.
If you want to give men knowledge
You must get it ere you give.
Do you wish the World were happy?
Then remember day by day,
Just to scatter seeds of kindness,
As you pass along the way.
For the pleasures of the many,
May be oft times traced to one.
As the hand that plants an acorn,
Shelters armies from the sun.
Poet: Ella Wheeler Wilcox
