You Serve…

| May 26, 2013

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ~ Ronald Reagan

On Memorial Day…

My dear friend, Ryan Sarti, wrote and produced this wonderful music video as a tribute to all who serve.

Remember, all gave some… some gave all… and they deserve to be remembered with respect and honor.

Many of us will enjoy this long weekend with our friends and families.

Many will place flowers on the graves of those who, even beyond the clutches of death, are still important to us.

Just for Today…

I want you to make a simple pledge.

Choose the name of a fallen hero or a family member who has passed on and say his or her name out loud.

Promise that person that you are eternally grateful for all they have done to preserve your freedom, and that you, to honor their memory, will become the BEST you possible.

You and I owe it to all who have given their lives for us to step up to the plate and actually BE the change we want to see.

PoTQ_REV3_3DwCD_MedNot just talk about the need for change.

Not just pray about the need for change.

Not just go through the motions and hope for the change you want to see.

I want you to promise that valiant man or woman that YOU will become all that is within you — to carry on in their stead and honor their name — to BE the change.

You are living proof that there is HOPE.

Within you is a superhero capable of more than you can begin to imagine.

You are called to serve.

Be the hope.



PS To help you release your full potential, take a few minutes to Test Your TQ and discover exactly which area of your performance you need to improve… then vow to improve it. After all, you can’t BE your best if you are not AT your best.
