Feeling Stuck In The Classroom?

This single piece of paper has been taped up on my office walls in 9 different houses over 20 years now!  It’s traveled with me, that’s for sure!

It was at a Detroit Literacy conference when I saw Dr. Lorraine Monroe speak about 20 years ago.  I ran out, got her book, went home, and started reading Nothing’s Impossible.  

I remember reading this one quote in her book and rushing straight to my Apple II GS--do you remember those--they were huge, and typing it up.

She said, 

“Often the evidence of success is slow in coming or impossible to see.  Therefore, much good work must be done by faith and by faith alone.”

Do you ever feel like things aren’ t the way you want them to be or that you feel stuck in the classroom, looking out the window wishing you were somewhere else.  

Maybe you want to start a business but the stability of the paycheck is keeping you staying stuck?

Regardless, of what’s holding you back, remember that success doesn’t happen overnight, but you have to start to make it happen.

Most people in the world live their lives without even understanding what it is they really want for themselves.  Or, even if they know what they want, they neither have the will nor the vision to create what they want. Most of the time they’re just settling for whatever is easy, for whatever they term as attainable and within their reach.

We’re always trying to create our lives based on the current reality that exists around us at this moment.  If we enslave our visions to our current situation, it’s once again only settling for what is attainable and easy, what you think is possible. 

We need not to think in terms of what is possible or not possible. It’s in terms of seeing what is the vision, what’s the highest that you can seek in your life.

What you know as the highest, just seek that.  

If you have a vision, and you don’t obsess over will this happen, or concerned about whether it’s easy or difficult, basically, instead you give your life towards it.  

To simply give yourself to what you want with undivided attention, without the pressure and worry of what’s going to happen, well this is where business is a process of expanding oneself.  A way of transcending limitations within and outside of ourselves.  

If a woman has a vision of what she wishes to do with herself and the world around her, it’s not beyond her capacity to create it.

Ms. Monroe’s simple quote has served me well over the years whether it was in the classroom or the boardroom, it’s a good reminder that nothing happens overnight, it’s a process.  

What seems to be impossible today becomes a normal part of your life tomorrow.  Without any fuss it falls at your feet.  But, at every moment if you logically question this and think it terms of, “Is this attainable or not attainable?” the confusion that you create in your mind makes everything into one big confusion.  

We are a process….a work in progress. 

Every day I’m a better version of myself than I was the day before.  

We’re all on a journey, and no one’s journey is better than yours.  

I ask you, Do you like the journey you’re on?  If the answer is no, what can you do to change your journey?  How can you rewrite your future?

It’s time to really create a vision within ourselves, not for today, but in terms of being a human being, as to what it is you care for and what is the highest thing you can seek, and create that vision.

I didn’t grow WriteSteps overnight into a 7 figure business.  It was a process, it took time and a lot of work!   But, after 10 years I was blessed that someone wanted to buy my business baby, and that I now got to start a new chapter, a new journey.  

So, just remember, 

“Often the evidence of success is slow in coming or impossible to see.  Therefore, much good work must be done by faith and by faith alone.”
