Is it hot where you live?
It was one of the first hot summer days of the year. I was working outside on our farm. I don’t know about you, but it takes me a few times of working outside in the heat for my body to adjust. Since this was one of the first hot days, my body had not adjusted yet. So I was feeling pretty hot, sweaty, and tired out there working away.
I stopped to take my hat off and wipe my brow and in doing so looked up. And what to my wandering eyes should appear? Vultures. That’s right, three or four vultures were circling over me. And I thought to myself, “I must be feeling worse than I know.” I stood there and watched them for a few moments as they circled and circled me, eyeing me to see whether I would make it or not. The good news is they passed on over to somewhere else.
Often times in life, it seems like something ominous is circling you—rising interest rates or rumors of layoffs or a loved one has a terminal disease. In those times, remind yourself that life or business is better than it seems. That’ll it pass…as you live positive and work positive today.
