Rhon’s Inspiration Station A New CEO No Problem
Americans went and voted November 6th,
below is what I wrote before the election, here is what I wanted the world to see
It is now too late as Obama has won a second term but not to waste my efforts you may want to still read my comments below:
I will vote for the most pro-life candidate, because God hates the shedding of innocent blood (Proverbs 6:17).
I will vote for the most pro-Israel candidate, because God blesses those who blesses Israel & curses those who don’t (Genesis 12:3).
I will vote for the most pro-debt reduction candidate, because the borrower is servant to the lender (Proverbs 22:7).
I will vote for the most pro-work candidate because God says if a man not work, let him not eat. (2 Thessalonians 3:10)
I will vote for the most pro-marriage candidate, because God is for marriage as defined in Genesis 2:24
I will vote for the candidate who most closely believes government’s purpose is to reward the good & punish the evil (Romans 13).
“Nothing in life is to be feared, it is only to be understood.”
“Calm self-confidence is as far from conceit as the desire to earn a decent living is remote from greed.”
“I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence, but it comes from within. It is there all the time.”
– Marie Curie
“Take calculated risks. That is quite different from being rash.”
– George S. Patton

A successful business man was growing old and knew it was time to choose a successor to take over the business. Instead of choosing one of his Directors or his children, he decided to do something different. He called all the young executives in his company together He said, “It is time for me to step down and choose the next CEO. I have decided to choose one of you. “The young executives were Shocked, but the boss continued. “I am going to give each one of you a SEED today – one very special SEED. I want you to plant the seed, water it, and come back here one year from today with what you have grown from the seed I have given you. I will then judge the plants that you bring, and the one I choose will be the next CEO.” One man, named Jim, was there that day and he, like the others, received a seed. He went home and excitedly, told his wife the story. She helped him get a pot, soil and compost and he planted the seed. Every day, he would water it and watch to see if it had grown. After about three weeks, some of the other executives began to talk about their seeds and the plants that were beginning to grow. Jim kept checking his seed, but nothing ever grew Three weeks, four weeks, five weeks went by, still nothing. By now, others were talking about their plants, but Jim didn’t have a plant and he felt like a failure. Six months went by — still nothing in Jim’s pot. He just knew he had killed his seed. Everyone else had trees and tall plants, but he had nothing Jim didn’t say anything to his colleagues, however, he just kept watering and fertilizing the soil – he so wanted the seed to grow. A year finally went by and all the young executives of the company brought their plants to the CEO for inspection. Jim told his wife that he wasn’t going to take an empty pot. But she asked him to be honest about what happened. Jim felt sick to his stomach, it was going to be the most embarrassing moment of his life, but he knew his wife was right. He took his empty pot to the board room. When Jim arrived, he was amazed at the variety of plants grown by the other executives. They were beautiful – in all shapes and sizes. Jim put his empty pot on the floor and many of his colleagues laughed, a few felt sorry for him! When the CEO arrived, he surveyed the room and greeted his young executives. Jim just tried to hide in the back. “My, what great plants, trees and flowers you have grown,” said the CEO. “Today one of you will be appointed the next CEO!” All of a sudden, the CEO spotted Jim at the back of the room with his empty pot. He ordered the Financial Director to bring him to the front. Jim was terrified.. He thought, “The CEO knows I’m a failure! Maybe he will have me fired!” When Jim got to the front, the CEO asked him what had happened to his seed, Jim told him the story. The CEO asked everyone to sit down except Jim. He looked at Jim, and then announced to the young executives, “This is your next Chief Executive Officer! His name is Jim!” Jim couldn’t believe it. Jim couldn’t even grow his seed. “How could he be the new CEO?” the others said. Then the CEO said, “One year ago today, I gave everyone in this room a seed. I told you to take the seed, plant it, water it, and bring it back to me today. But I gave you all boiled seeds; they were dead – it was not possible for them to grow. All of you, except Jim, have brought me trees and plants and flowers. When you found that the seed would not grow, you substituted another seed for the one I gave you. Jim was the only one with the courage and honesty to bring me a pot with my seed in it. Therefore, he is the one who will be the new Chief Executive Officer!
* If you plant honesty, you will reap trust*
If you plant goodness, you will reap friends*
If you plant humility, you will reap greatness*
If you plant perseverance, you will reap contentment*
If you plant consideration, you will reap perspective* If you plant hard work, you will reap success*
If you plant forgiveness, you will reap reconciliation
So, be careful what you plant now; it will determine what you will reap later.
Think about this for a minute.
If I happened to show up on your door step crying, would you care?
If I called you and asked you to pick me up because something happened, would you come?
If I had one day left to live my life, would you be part of that last day?
If I needed a shoulder to cry on, would you give me yours?
This is a test to see who your real friends are or if you are just someone to talk to when they are bored.
Do you know what the relationship is between your two eyes?
They blink together, they move together, they cry together, they see things together, and they sleep together, but they never see each other; that’s what friendship is.
Your aspiration is your motivation; your motivation is your belief, your belief is your peace, Your peace is your target; your target is heaven, and life is like hard core torture without it!
My heartfelt thanks to Frans Maritz (Wildhorse Entertainment) for his superb web site. He does so much to help the Indie industry, and is one of the kindest most supportive persons I know.
