Wow, didn’t know this. So Hewlett-Packard got started in a garage in the (what is now Silicon Valley) Great Depression………..the two founders Hewlett and Packard flipped a coin over what the company name was going to be called…..Packard-Hewlett or Hewlett-Packard……well enjoy. History of Hewlett-Packard
People prefer known hells to unknown heavens, because hell is familiar. ~Les Brown
Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
So although I’m generally a very positive person I decided to drop this post to remind myself and anyone who’s willing to listen. So recently some people who I know and had great conversations with have gone from this world. I still have the shared memory of common experiences, but the spirit of that person has left this realm. I send best wishes and condolences to him and his family. I’m not going to post a picture because I don’t want to parade him on this blog as he will truly be remembered by many as a great man. But his death reminded me as it does all of us. Are you doing the things that you want to do. Are you building creating what you want to create? Are you being the person in life that you want to be? OR are you just coasting from crises to crises hoping that one day you can stop and smell the roses. Well I got news for you. Even when you think you reached a position where you can relax, “Bam” a new crises will show up. So crises or no crises, start, if you already started keep going, if you kept going but your waning focus, remember why you started and re-imagine the final outcome. Listening to Les Brown yesterday morning he so eloquently put it, all the dreams, and ideas, poetry, sounds, revelations, words, and hopes, that you have are yours to bring to fruition in the world. No one else has been given those set of ideas, it’s your job, to execute, execute, execute. In the end, win, lose, or fail. You’ll know you have lived the life you wanted to live. One thing that I picked up from another motivational speech is to repeat, I am the kind of person who………..dreams big, saves money, helps kids, protects my family, helps the handicap, writes novels, makes films, creates shows that amaze, plants flowers or trees. The possibilities are endless, with LOVE in my heart Electramorhipism out.
Sometimes on our destination it can get scary. Things can get bumpy and seem out of place. There’s nothing like listening to motivational speakers who keep you focused on your objective. Thanks all folks. Les Brown is very inspiring and motivating speaker. Thanks for watching. Goodnight.
So in my free time besides listening to the latest music and learning whats going on in the world. I find motivating speakers to listen to. On my search on YouTube I stumbled upon Mr. or Dr. Earl Nightingale. I really like the way he conveys his thoughts. His speeches cover all types of subjects from personal empowerment, to business leadership, to fear, attitude, a lot of the reasons people fail to achieve, accomplish their dreams. I find by listening to these types of speakers when things are good, when things get bad you have substance to draw on. One of his favorite speeches that he gives that I like is called, “Acres of Diamonds”. Basically this guy goes around the whole world looking for treasure only to end up dead and broke or dead broke. Then someone buys the land that he had and found one of the greatest diamond mines in the world. So basically, instead of chasing everything that has made others successful or rich, or happy, chase the things that makes you happy, rich, and successful. He also has a series that he calls insight. Where he takes a subject or concept and delves into it giving you afresh perspective on life and real life situations. In closing, one of Earl’s greatest quotes is, whatever we plant in our subconscious and nourish with repetition will one day become a reality in our lives. On that note. Enjoy your day.
