THE PLAN

We all appreciate that businesses require a Business Plan and a Marketing Plan to be successful and to track their achievements. My nephew, Anthony A.K. King and I were having a discussion and as we talked he shared his passion of working with males in helping them to be successful in life. He had recently met with some young men who were seniors in high school and he asked them about their personal business plans for their life. The young men were caught off guard because even though they were high school seniors no one had ever talked to them about their personal life goals, their business plan.

So I pose the same question to you, what is your plan? Do you have a business plan that will guide you in getting to where it is you say you want to go or to the place you say you want to be? Do you fully embrace your plan? Can you easily recite it to anyone who asks you the infamous question, ‘What are you doing these days?’

What is your vision for your life? How will you get there?

Like the old saying goes; How do you eat an elephant? The answer is: One bite at a time. Do you know what your elephant is? Make the plans to proceed one bite at a time, set incremental steps to reaching your goals. Design your plan in truth and honesty. Please do not get caught up in someone else’s vision for your life. What do you truly desire in this life time? What will you truly do to accomplish what you say is important to you? How long do you want to take to get there? Understand that you are the master of this course. You obtain your doctorate degree at completion.

Is this the first time someone has even asked you this question? Then good, I am glad I am asking it! I applaud you at the finish line. I will be there at the graduation ceremony.

ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE

 Enjoy the experience you are currently in, there is JOY within it and all around you.

 Whatever the experience looks like resolve yourself to finding the beauty and joy in it. It may be hiding but it is there! You have the choice and care of creating your life. When JOY is what you desire then JOY will be manifested. It is always your very own choice.

 Blessings sometimes come disguised as something else. Yet when you are always expecting JOY and a miracle, then that is what will be evidenced by you. Take for instance, no employment. This could be a time of great distress or you can make the most of it and discover a great gift that has been waiting for you to have some free time to show itself to you. Maybe you can learn to swim or learn to paint or construct another artistic object. This may be the golden time of your life. Remember it is your choice of how you will look at it, either a curse or a blessing.

 Enjoying the experience may mean that you are currently living a single life. Well how about truly developing your relationships with the friends in your life. You now have the time to do things that you did not have time for before. Go out and meet new people. Get involved in an activity that you have put off until the right time. Enjoy your life and the experience you are currently in.

 Age has absolutely nothing to do with it. Age is a matter of consciousness. I know an elder who says she is 16, however the way we calculate age she is actually 88 years young. But for her, she is 16 (8+8) and loving life.

 Add flavor to your life by daring yourself to learn a new language or go to a new place just for the fun of it. Another friend of mine has recently relocated to the Southeast and he takes full advantage of his new environment by going out and learning about this new uncharted area of the United States he has never lived in before. He is having the time of his life.
