Utilizing humiliation as a method to “teach” humility is equivalent to force feeding poison to “build” a healthy immune system. It’s wrong and it has no place in a professional setting!
He that maintains a grip on determination in spite of “mighty winds” is like unto one that completes the journey through a hot desert with a short water supply.
He will find a way to make it regardless of the challenges set before him…

He that idolizes arrogance is like unto one that plants weeds in his own garden. Fruit may grow, but the weeds will corrupt that which is good.

My pleasure @spnlocal!
PSA for businesses and individuals:
If you profess that you operate by a set of values, that must be accompanied by “practicing what you preach”. In doing so others will come to your aid to ensure your values are not compromised!
Lessons are a teacher to them that are open to learning. They can also return in worst form to those with a hard head!
Stop and think before you do!

One minute you are flying down the road and the next you are sitting bumper to bumper. Sometimes, traffic is necessary on your journey to teach you patience.
If some folks reached their destination exactly when they wanted to…
Allow no man to trick you into thinking humility and zero confidence go hand in hand. Humility equals freedom from pride and arrogance; the big head.
Confidence is believing that you can do what you put your mind to; no limits! Both humility and confidence are necessary pieces to the puzzle called success!
Imagine having the moon with a galaxy in arms reach, but your attitude prevents you from touching it. Sad story.
Bad attitudes are an unnecessary barrier between you and the next level!
To the leader that believes their team is nothing without them, remember this:There is no need for a leader without a team.
Oh, and you are delusional too. Tell em Kurtis said so! 🤷🏾♂️🗣
Be crazy enough to believe that your dream will come to pass and smart enough to know that if it doesn’t, you’ll be ok.
Remember, success is not dependent upon 1 dream; try again!
Sometimes it takes a man to fall off the cliff before he realizes he can fly.

Some things grab your attention for a reason. Don’t wave it off like it means nothing.
Keep your eyes open!
Your circle of influence is like unto an overfilled cup of juice; it will spill onto everything within close proximity and leave stains that are sometimes hard to get out.

The mind drifts into the unknown pondering over “what if’s” as a result of failed attempts.
However, we fail to realize that some of those failed attempts were sanctioned to keep us from falling into a trap. 🙌🏾
Keep moving forward!
The path of the lost resembles a treadmill; there is a lot of movement, and a burning of calories, but they aren’t really going anywhere.
Time to change paths!
Clueless bystanders may be drunk with hysteria while your “ark” is under construction. 🚧 You spell out your plans; they laugh.
You maintain hope though scorn; they laugh…
He who destroys his fellow man to “get ahead” is like unto one who builds a house on the surface of a sinkhole; a collapse is inevitable.
Our perception can sometimes complicate the simple things. Reevaluate why you may be feeling stuck; are you pushing a door that says pull? 🤔
Figure it out!
Before the match could really get started, many of us have tapped out; too much.
If we can’t handle the beginning of the journey, what makes us think…
I’m going to leave it right there. Ponder and reflect on your journey.

Word of wisdom for the day; STOP.
What was the point of that Kurtis? Trust me, somebody somewhere, maybe YOU needed to hear it.
What should a man do when the odds are stacked against him? Use them to build his empire.
Run and tell that! 💥
A business strategy infused with a GENUINE love for people has the capability to surpass the highest of heights and continue soaring.
There you have it; one of the secrets to success.
You know that I agree! We need to chat soon. I just realized we haven’t had a zoom call.
Loving what you do from your lips alone will lead you to the river called misery rather quickly.
From the heart flows true love, which sparks actions that back up what you say. Folks will see and feel it!
Self humiliation is a door one should never open in an attempt to gain favor from those they deem more successful than themselves!
He/she is a person just like you are! Admiration and respect is fine, but you don’t belong at the bottom of nobody’s shoe! Tell em I said so!
Successful completion of a project requiring team collaboration is like unto the purpose of the seesaw. Attempting to push yourself up with no help will be unfruitful.
Until another sits down with enough “power” to bring you up from the ground, you aren’t going anywhere!
If it’s a team project, YOU are not the team! Stop trying to do it all.
He who signs a contract without understanding the fine print is he who will pierce himself with much grief.
Don’t get too excited in any situation and jump to make a decision. Pay attention!
Because of age and minimal TLC, some buildings lose their splendor. Thinking out of haste we tend to think “tearing it down” is the best resolution to the problem.
Sometimes a good renovation will bring the renewal needed so that building can shine bright again!
Renovate or destroy? Mind the message!
Attempting to microwave what should be cooked will give you an undesired result. Why not cook it properly and bypass unnecessary frustration? 🤷🏾♂️
Think about it 💭💡
Competition is inevitable. However, a talebearer will be the death of innovation. Don’t believe me? Spill the beans prematurely.
Receiving a “No” is not the end, but gives you 2 roads to travel. Road 1 is to abandon and start anew, and Road 2 is to perfect and resurface.
Don’t waste time attempting to perfect that which should be abandoned!
He who enters the room of a physician seeking care, but attempts to instruct the healer on how to heal must reevaluate his “need” for help.

Exterior appearances tend to remain polished well, leaving one to infer the presence of beauty on the inside…
Insubordination to determination is unacceptable! Fear and uncertainty may knock at the door. You may feel butterflies before you take that next step, but do it!
“What if it doesn’t work?” is just as much of a possibility as “what if it would have worked out?”! Which side of history would you want to be standing on?
