The Patriot way of doing your job

gillette

The New England Patriots are a football Franchise, that play a game of football, which besides the physical nature of the game, it is simply just a game of strategy with the best strategy on that day winning the game. The strategy part of football is similar to the board game of Chess, the object to football is reaching the end zone of the opponent and in Chess reaching the other end of the board, conquering the opponents King, There are a series of moves or plays that happen in between, which makes it quite simple, each player or Chess piece has a job to do and when each do their jobs, that is the team that reigns supreme on that day,

The New England Patriots have been good for so long, because they have a coach that understands the game as good or better then most within the game today, in chess you would call him a Wizard. he not only understands the game, he also knows how to motivate each player, knows when they are on the up swing or down swing of their careers and he flat out will out coach any coach in the game.

Now you have this guy named Tom Brady, which by the way is the best Quarterback in the game. Tom didn’t get this way by chance, he with his great work ethnic, made himself the best he can be, he practices and studies film as much as anybody in the game. Tom has also become a great leader of his Teammates showing by example, not too mention he is one of the most competitive guys in the NFL and he definitely likes to win more than he does losing.

Now it takes a lot more than a great coach or players to become successful in the NFL, you also need a great Owner that wants his investment to reap big rewards, there is no better Owner of all sports better than Bob Kraft. The best day in the history of the New England Patriots was the day Bob bought the team. Bob Kraft is a great business man and he did what any business man would of done, surrounded himself with the best of the best football minds he knew. He started with Coach Parcels which had brought them to a Superbowl, they lost that one, then they went out and signed Bill Belichek, which they never looked back and the rest is history.

I have been through the years that the Patriots would only win one game a year, but now these Patriots are rewriting all the record books and from a fan of long standing, what a ride it has been, True there has been some changes through the glory years, with some of the coaching staff and players, but the two common denominators have been, Bill Belichek and Tom Brady, these two guys have become the best Coach\Quarterback tandem in the history of the NFL and we here in New England are witnessing it first hand. Yes your going to have your Hecklers and Hater’s, the Yankee’s and the Canadians went through it in their hey day, simply because others were jealous of their winning all the time, this is what being successful brings unfortunately, The team of the New England Patriots are a Franchise that when you look deeply into what you see, you can clearly see that, they were not that successful, but with hard work, some of the right changes, they now have become a successful Franchise, that we all can look up to and strive to become.

The path that the New England Patriots took is nothing different than the path we all take through this journey of life, it only differs from the amount of hard dedicated work you put in along the path, the harder you work, the easier it becomes and the more you practice the work, the better you become along your path of this journey. Nothing is easy and nothing just comes to you without practice, if we only just follow the Patriot way, just maybe we all can achieve the same success that they have received over their glory years. In many ways sports and life are different, but in many other ways, its the sports that help us, become better and stronger as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” The New England Patriot way of ” Do your job” can also be our way through this journey of life:

” With hard work and practice we all can achieve success at anything we do”

” Chess is a game of strategy, just like football with the best strategy winning on that day”

” Practice is how we become better and stronger so we can walk our paths easier making our lives even better”

 

The Crown of Jesus Christ

” You have heard that it was said to your Ancestor’s, you shall not kill and who ever kills will be liable to judgement, but I say to you, who ever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgement”.

*** Mt: 5:21-22a***

 

This picture was taken last summer, up in the woods of Maine, on a camping adventure of peace and serenity. I was out in the kayak one day paddling along the lake and seeing all of natures beauty and for a bonus, watching the Bald Eagles fly over head. I was loving this day and even though I was working the paddles through the water, this in no way seemed like work, simply because i was enjoying all the peace and serenity all around me. Then as I came around this one Inlet, these roots were front and center and as I got closer, I could clearly see what they truly resembled, they resemble the Crown of Jesus Christ sticking out of the water. These are the signs that God sends us, so we can receive his message and never lose sight that he is always with us, no matter who you are and no matter what life struggles you are going through.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we have also herd the saying ” an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”? Maybe not such an extreme, but yes we all should be held accountable for our actions and held totally liable to the judgments of those actions. Within this Society and because of the Political Correction, we don’t hold anybody for their actions, as we are so afraid to offend anybody, which then leaves us with a Society in such disarray, that none of us accept the judgments of our actions, instead we point the finger to others, blaming them for what we should be accepting ourselves. What this type of practice does most is, create more anger of each other, instead of spreading the love of God, that is within our hearts and souls, spreading our love is so easy, as the anger and hate we so chose to spread, takes much more work on all our parts.

The being angry towards one another has us all forgetting just how to truly forgive one another, it has us all being not truly of who we are, it then replaces a big part of ourselves with, someone that we ourselves do not even know? When Jesus came to us and walked his journey with us, he taught us many things, he showed us how to truly love ourselves as well as each other, he also showed us that anger and betrayal will bring us to our knees with much pain, to which he himself because of the anger and betrayal, died on the cross for each of us, then three days later…….. showed us all that, when we truly change our ways, when we truly feel his love within us, we can learn to forgive ourselves as well as each other, so we all at the day of judgement, can truly be of who we are, so as we walk our paths through this journey of life, we all can be at peace, while we are all living in happiness throughout the journey.

 

” Life’s journey doesn’t have to be as hard as it seems, it is only we ourselves that make it as hard as it seems”

” Anger and Betrayal are what brings us to our knee’s with much pain, with Love there is no pain only peace and happiness”

” The signs from God are all around us, we just have to truly look deeply into what we see, so we can truly see all of the signs”

” When the signs of God are in front of us, change is how we accept his message, so we can truly forgive and see all the beauty around us”

 

A Nation of Immigrants

” We all want a better life and sometimes we go to other areas to find the better life, but when we come from a different country, we first need to go through proper channels and do it correctly, without over staying our welcome”

 

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all want to better and stronger as we walk our paths, but when we take advantage of one another, or we hurt one another in any way shape or form, now your doing something wrong and need to change what you are doing. I get that some in other Countries are struggling and want a better way for their families, but when you relocate to a whole different place and don’t follow their laws, or want the ones in that new place to give you everything without you working for it, now you are doing something wrong and need to change what you are doing, or go back to where you came from.

America was built on Immigration, but Immigration done the correct way. When their is the word of ” Illegal” before the word of Immigration, now you are doing something wrong and need to change what you are doing. I am getting sick and tired of listening to the left or the Democrats, calling out Trump on his Immigration reform that it is an attack on all Immigrants? It is not an attack on all, only those Immigrants with the word ” Illegal” before it, simply because you are doing something wrong and you need to change what you are doing, or go back to where you came from. Most of these ” Illegals” are Criminals and are doing great harm to all those around us, not too mention the sponging off of all of us, by taking our hard earned money every day and the Democrats are letting them do it, simply because they vote for them with the fake credentials they are given.

Then there is the left bias Media, that only print what they want to print, irregardless of whether it is actual truth or not? They take the words of ” Illegal” Immigration, drop the word in quotes and make it sound like the Immigration policy of Trump is against all Immigrants? I am calling out all forms of Media, no matter what platform you use and actually do your job, of printing the 100% truth of everything, without distorting, twisting, or leaving out of any words that only fit what ever agenda you want to achieve. All the Media is doing is creating way to much Drama, in this already Drama ridden Society we are living, just so they can make all the money and come across as more powerful than the rest of us. I think we the People already proved just how powerful we are, with the results of this past Election, as all the Media was left scratching their heads. Plus a lot of information the media reports on and a lot of the quotes the Democrats quote to us, come from Parody accounts that are on Twitter and to those of us with Common sense, we all know what a Parody account is? Correct it is another way of saying a fake account, that some create hiding who they really are, so they can get away with using words to hurt their fellow man. We all walk a path through this journey of life, time we all get back on the same page like the years of our beginning, so we all can move forward better and stronger, while living peacefully and in happiness.

 

” A Parody is fake and is only created to create more drama, while hiding solely who they truly are”

” When you hide of who you truly are, only means that you are ashamed of who you are and have some issues that you yourself need to fix”

” Immigrants are on a journey for a better life from where they currently are, most will do it correctly, but a small percentage won’t think twice at taking advantage of their fellow man”

” If you can’t do a job with confidence and on your own merits, then you really shouldn’t be doing the job you are in, especially when you are in a position that hurts those around you”

 

We are all Patriots……

” True Patriots unite as one, there is no hatred to be found no matter who you are, or where you are from”.

 

Patriots may be a football team that play at this stadium known as Gillette, but we are all Patriots who walk a path, through this journey of life. I can remember a time when this same football team of the Patriots were only winning one or two games a year, man!!! What a different team they are now. True there is way too much hatred of this team, simply because they do nothing but win for the last fifteen years, it is pretty much a Dynasty that has been built by Robert Kraft the Owner, with the bringing in of Bill Belichek, so why can’t we just sit back and enjoy the ride? without bringing the unnecessary drama.

This team from year to year has had many different components, but the two common denominators have been Bill Belichek and Tom Brady. These two have pretty much re-written all the records and show no signs of slowing down, or calling it quits. So from someone who has struggled from year to year while saying, ” wait til next year” every year, it feels good to be proud of the team once again, as they truly are a great football team.

With all the success of the Patriots over the last fifteen years, you will have the Hater’s hating on this team simply because their team can’t beat the Patriots and the fans want the same success as the Patriot fans. The New York Yankees and the Montreal Canadians went through the same as the Patriots are going through now, only because they win more than they lose, what I say to all the Hater’s out there is, if you want to be a Champion, then step up to the plate and beat a Champion. Now not everybody can be a Champion, because as one team wins, there has to be another team that loses, this is fact and a fact we all have to better at excepting, so we can move forward better and stronger.

When Robert Kraft bought this team the New England Patriots,  this was the beginning of positive change not just to a football team, but to the Community that hosts this team. The Patriots are so good on so many levels, it would take all day to write about them all, but if those who hate on this team, would only set aside their hate and truly look at the team the Patriots, they could clearly see why they have become a great team and do what they need, so they to can accomplish the same success. There is way too much Hate within this Society and it goes a lot deeper than any sports team and their success, but if we can watch our favorite team, to cheer them on as they strive for success, then just maybe we can all unite and become one on the same team, as we all walk our paths through this journey of life, to become better and stronger with every step, then we all can share what it is like to be on the winning team throughout life.

 

” Winning should never be hated on, as it takes a lot of hard work and dedication”

” Hard work and plenty of practice are the key ingredients to anything you want to win at”

” We all want success but refuse the hard work and practice part, then we hate the ones that achieve the success with much hard work and practice”

” Don’t hate on a team just because they keep on winning, simply step up to the plate and beat the Champion to achieve the same success”

 

Greatness Personified………

” Greatness is within us all, but unfortunately only a few achieve true greatness”

 

Last nights Superbowl was an Epic event on so many levels, not too mention being one of the best Super bowls of my lifetime so far. Okay it is true I am a New England Patriot fan,  it is also true that I like many other true fans have gone through many seasons, with our beloved Pats only winning one game a year, so it is safe to say that, I am not the only one enjoying the ride for the last 17 seasons. With all the Hater’s hating on this team only shows what greatness brings and the New York Yankees back in their hay day, have also been through what the Patriots are going through now, which is where the nickname the ” Evil Empire” came from. What I say to all the Hater’s out there is, ” if you truly want to be a Champion, than step up to the plate and beat a true Champion”, with Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons almost did just that.

Tom Brady and Bill Belichek just solidified their greatness last night with this great come back win, some may say that the Falcons choked, but to the real football fan, this game was won a team that never gave up, no matter of how big the odds were as this game moved forward. This game was won by a team that never lost faith in their selves and their teammates, which kept hope alive for each and every one of them, when there is faith, you will always have hope and with these two, the confidence runs high throughout the entire team. Plus with the slogan of ” do your job”, the task at hand never really got too big for them to handle.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, we all also go through the good as well as the bad, with what I learned of Tom Brady’s Mom last night, I couldn’t stop my eyes from watering and to think she was at her first game watching her son……. the tears filled up my eyes and my heart became warm with love. with all the chemo she has been through, she was strong enough to go watch her son in person, which made this story so much bigger than the game of football itself. Tom Brady is more than just a football Quarterback, he is a Human, walking a path through this journey of life, just like all of us as well. The biggest difference between Tom Brady and most of us is, he never gives up, he never loses faith in himself and with this faith, never loses hope that he can achieve Greatness, plus as a Human and with all his Mom has been through, Tom Brady stays focused on the prize and the true prize isn’t each Championship ring he receives, the true prize is each chance he gets to spend good quality time with his Mom at her time of need. This was the story within the game, this is the story that drives Tom Brady to Greatness, this is a story and a message to the rest of us that, we to can achieve the same Greatness if we want it bad enough, we just have to stay focused on the true prize and not the prize surrounded by drama or false reality. We all walk a path through this journey of life and when we do it correctly, when we stay focused on the true prize and when we never give up, never lose faith, which brings us all the hope we need to move forward better and stronger, so we all can share our love within, with each other, as we then walk this journey in peace and happiness.

 

” True greatness is within us all, we just have to focus and never give up, so the greatness will shine over us all”

” Last nights Super bowl game was beyond a great game when you look deeply into the game”

” With Faith there will always be Hope and when you have them both, the confidence will drive you to never give up no matter of the odds”

 

 

As the Stream flows……..

 

The stream carves out a path for which it travels along the Earth’s floor,

Walking along the shore of the stream has you seeing all the true beauty around,

Just as we walk a journey the stream travels along it’s journey also,

Sit and take a break from your journey along the shore of the stream,

to notice the beauty in the sounds and sights around you,

The sound of water flowing down the mountain side,

is so soothing and relaxing, it has all your stress simply melt away,

Then as you totally focus on the water flowing by,

you can actually see there is all kinds of life around you,

The tree’s the plants the flowers are all thriving from the stream,

The little Amphibious animals within the stream itself,

This all has you focusing on things you normally would never,

Then suddenly you see a Bear up stream……….

but you find he is looking for his daily meal within the stream,

that he don’t notice as you sit quietly and nervously by,

A Moose wanders to the shores of the stream,

as he splashes the water on him washing away the days filth,

Then as you look down stream you see a Deer,

as he to comes to the stream for his daily drink,

Now as you sit by the shore of the stream you suddenly realize,

this stream is a busy place and you are not alone within,

the peace and serenity that the forest has within it.

 

 

You become so relaxed of the sounds of the mountain stream,

you fall asleep for a little nap and awake to the same great sounds,

As relaxed as you are you get up and move along the shore of the stream,

You now become one with the stream as you notice all its beauty,

The beauty is not just within the stream it is all around as well,

The tree’s of all sizes, shapes and varieties are everywhere,

we watch the leaves of the tree’s sway in the breeze,

with really no effort or energy to the branches that holds them,

As we feel the air that the leaves pushes around invisible like,

we take a deep breathe to let the clean air clean out our lungs,

As we look around the ground that our feet take each step upon,

we notice the little creatures as the squirrels and the chipmunks,

weaving a path around the fallen brush and the plants,

there is so much going on within the forest along the stream,

The only way to experience it is too actually go out,

walk among the tree’s along the shore of the stream,

don’t worry of what direction, simply just get outdoors,

within the deep cover of the forest and find your way,

Experience all that is around you so you can truly,

be one with mother nature and feel the beauty around you,

We all walk this journey of life but if we don’t go out and explore,

We totally miss out on a huge part of the entire journey.

 

” As the stream flows so do the words out of my head and onto the keyboard of my PC”

” Be one with Mother Nature to see all of her true beauty around you”

” The sounds from the stream are the best way to totally relax your body, mind and spirit”

” We walk our paths of this journey as to the stream flows along a path it carves through its journey as well”

 

Peaceful streets for a peaceful journey

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

 

Within this Society today we have way too many uneducated, il-informed and Mentally deranged Individuals walking our streets. These Individuals won’t think twice at bringing chaos to the rest of us, simply because they know no different, nor do they truly know of how to respect each other that walks a path through this journey of life.

With the Mentally deranged I blame the States and the federal for this, as when they need to make cuts, where is the first place they cut……….. You guessed it, the Mental Health Profession, now you have those that need help, walking our streets without getting the proper help and that leaves the rest of us to put up with the crap. The uneducated and the Il-informed are pretty much the same as now you have some walking among us, distorting all the facts to something that they think is what they want, or what they try to persuade to the rest of us as their fake reality, none the less these Individuals will always take to the streets and bring much chaos to the rest of us, when they don’t get their way, or better yet get what they think they deserve in their own little fake reality.

I am willing to bet that a high percentage of those that have taken to the streets lately are, the ones that have abused the system and have received free money from the Welfare they are on. This Welfare program was designed to help those in need when they have become down on their luck, it wasn’t supposed to become a way of life or a profession. This Welfare have made people lazy and not willing to work hard for what they want, like those of us who pay into this with our taxes we pay, basically you can say that, those who abuse Welfare are, robbing the American Taxpayer everyday, as they receive their free money and benefits. Because of the abuse of the system that has been going on for way too long, a high percentage of the ones taking to the streets, are the ones in jeopardy of losing their free money, meaning that they will be going back to work like the rest of us, hard work Individuals. ” It’s time we all pay our fair share no exceptions”

Then there is the uneducated, I solely blame the Teacher’s Union for this and how they take care of their Teacher’s, plus the school systems for letting the corruption go on for to long, with the Children ultimately paying the price in the long run. In the Winter if there is a dusting of snow, they cancel school……….Really!!! Now you are depriving the Children of learning, simply because you want the day off? Yes I said it, calling out our school department heads, when back when I was going to Elementary school, it was just about a mile or so? but we walked with no bus and just like a mailman, through all kinds of weather. Then there are the teaching programs that the Teacher’s put in place, they never really challenge the Student, as to the Teacher it is more of a popularity contest, then actually doing their job and teaching the children. America can be great once again and to do so, you need to go back to basics start with what got us to today, first and for most, start with each one of us getting back in touch with our Common Sense, so we all can fix what we need to fix, then as America gets better and stronger, we all can than walk our paths through this journey of life in peace and happiness everyday.

 

” When the streets are icy they become difficult to travel, as in life when too many abuse the system, now you have a broken system”

” Time to take out the trash and replace with newer and better ways for all to flourish”

” Common Sense isn’t too common today, we need to find it within us to move forward better”
