Hip Hop Affirmation of the Day#80
“I’M KINDA YOUNG, BUT MY TONGUE SPEAKS MATURITY.”~Special Ed (I Got it Made)
As you strive to accomplish great things you may find yourself, “ahead of your time.” You will be with folks who are a bit older than yourself, but don’t let that intimidate you. Hold your ground and focus on what your have to offer and not how many years you’ve been on this earth.
You’re a baby! How many times have you heard that in your life?
If I had a dollar for every time the above statement was said to me, I would be able to retire (okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit, but you get the point). It happen to me when I was an intern in Syracuse University’s Athletic Department. I was one of the youngest to hold the position. I got my work done and was able to network with the best of them. I think my calm demeanor and way of working with others left people wondering, “How old is this guy?” My favorite response became, “Do you want to know how old I am?” as I pointed to my mind or “do you want to know how old I am?” as I pointed to my body. Just letting them know not to confuse my physical age with my mental age. Watch out now!
Affirmation of the Day: I am wise beyond my years
Question of the Day: Do you allow your age to limit what you can accomplish?
Action of the Day: Research great accomplishments and the age of those who accomplished them.
Run the Point; from where you are, with what you have!
