An Unusual Poem For Your Massive Success by Robin Sharma


I found this poem by Robin Sharma on the other side
of a link in an email he sent to his subscribers. I had to share it with the
Grow Forward & Flourish community.
 It is my hope that it will be printed and kept in a place that you can see
 everyday to remind you that your
job is to manifest the glory of God  within you. And as you do, you will
encourage those around you to do the same!

By Robin Sharma
Within each of us lies The Project.
An idea longing to be nourished, cherished, launched and completed.
Writing a novel. Starting an enterprise. Raising a family. Freeing a nation.
Our deepest desire is to do The Project. To express our vision.
To carefully and patiently watch it unfold.
To present it to those who will benefit by it.
And to experience the pride of the job beautifully done.
Yet, a million distractions battle for our attention.
And one hundred doubts fill our hearts.
And so slowly and subtly, we recite the excuses that construct our reality.
And we shelve The Project. Postponing it for a better day.
But postponing The Project is life’s greatest lie.
Picasso and Basquiat, Einstein and Edison, Jobs and Jay-Z didn’t wait for
an ideal day to do their dream. They started. When it was hard.
Though they had little. While they were alone.
So many of the world’s troubles are symptoms of The Project undone.
Pain is the result of potential denied.
And when you avoid The Project, you dishonor your gifts. Your Talents.
Your Genius.
A portion of you goes numb. Silent. Quiet. Scared.
The moment you start The Project, everything shifts.
Purpose, focus, passion and peace returns to your life. Eyes sparkle.
Energy explodes. Inspiration flows. And your days become supported
by coincidence, power and peak possibility.
This very day, the first of a fresh year–presents your greatest opportunity.
To be a lion not a sheep. To walk with giants versus among the meek.
To celebrate your best instead of succumbing to the worst.
To lift others up versus tear others down. To pour creativity, mastery,
courage and light into a world aching for marks of heroism.
So please, step up. Release all chains. Dispute all doubts.
Start The Project. Do the dream. And change the world.
You are responsible for no less.

Your fan,

8 Reasons You Feel Emotionally Exhausted

If you neglect to recharge a battery, it dies. And if you run full speed ahead without stopping for water, you lose momentum to finish the race.
~ Oprah Winfrey ~

How often have you thought, “Where’s my get up and go? I’m tired all the time. But it’s not my body that’s tired. It’s like it’s me that’s tired inside my body.” So many of us are caught up in an energy rat race”, according to Mira Kirshenbaum, author of The Emotional Energy Factor: The Secrets High Energy People Use to Beat Emotional Fatigue. She says, “The demands of life, if not managed, will exhaust our emotional energy.” Emotional energy is defined by Kirshenbaum as “the preconditions for everything we care about. Everything worth doing that’s difficult gets lost without it. Marriages fail when we run out of the emotional energy to reach one more time across the divide of anger and silence. Dreams die when we lack the emotional energy to hang in there in the face of all the obstacles.” In my blog post, Simple Steps to Mana…

Managing Your Greatest Workplace Frustration

Whenever you’re in conflict with someone, there is one factor that can make the difference between damaging your relationship and deepening it. That factor is attitude.

If I conducted a survey on your job and it consisted of this question: Out of the following two issues, which would you say is the greatest source of your workplace frustration: “people issues” or “job tasks”, which of the two issues do you believe would receive the most votes?
