There is no ” I” in Team……..

To be a Champion in any team sport, comes down to the fact that, it’s not about one or two guys, it is totally a team effort and the Boston Bruins have proved that with the great season they are having. On the verge of yet another Stanley cup victory and the way they as a team rebounded from a lack luster performance in game two, they go two games to one in game three, in the best of a seven game series. Game three wasn’t just a win for the Bruins, they did so in the house of the St. Louis blues and in a dominating way, final score was seven to two, while going four for four on the power play also. This team has a good mix of veteran players, as well as great young talent, with a coach that has his finger on the pulse of each game. Chemistry is another part of being a true champion, it is how you are respected by your teammates, knowing your teammates so you can move as one on the ice with pin point passing, as you gain control of the puck away from the other team. The team whether on the ice or off the ice, has to bond together and be ready to battle for each other, like being a family, with the coaches being the parents of the family. These Boston Bruins are a special group, that have come together in harmony, as they put aside the ego’s to work hard at achieving the most prestigious trophy in all of sports…………….. Lord’s Stanley cup.

The Bruins might of dominated in last nights game three match up, but let’s not forget the St. Louis Blues, this team is built very similar to the Bruins, I am sure game four these Blues will be ready to battle once again, the Bruins will have to be ready for the fight and respond as they did in game three. To get this far and be the last two teams standing within the league, with a chance of being the champions of the hockey world, says a lot of both these teams, now with these Bruins being two wins away from the coveted prize, is no time to become comfortable, as the last two wins are just as hard as the last fourteen. For those true fans of the game of hockey, you have basically two seasons in one and we the fans are blessed with such a great game, now through the years the game has had some changes to it, like being a much faster game then years before, but the basics of the game stay in tact, like the first season being the regular season and the second season being the playoffs. With the playoffs there is a slogan we call ” Mission sixteen”, basically we call it that because it takes sixteen wins to win the playoffs and become the keeper of Lord’s Stanley’s cup.

My earliest memory of these Bruins was also against the St. Louis Blues, with the now famous greatest player to ever lace up the skates………… He is Bobby Orr and with an assist from Derek Sanderson, the rest is history with Bobby flying through the air in front of the goalie, for the goal and the winner of Lord’s Stanley’s cup. The Boston Bruins have a rich history and being one of the six original teams within the National Hockey League, not too mention some of the great hockey talent to wear the spoke “B” on their chest, is the reason why I myself Bleed black and gold. With two more wins this special team of the Boston Bruins can cement their names within the rich history of the organization.

Like Tom Brady has become the G. O. A. T. of the football world, we here in the city of Boston has witnessed two G. O. A. T’s of their sports, with Tom Brady and Bobby Orr. There is a lot of sports history here in the city of Boston and with the Bruins on the brink of winning a championship, along with the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots all in the same season, which hasn’t been done since the season of 1935/1936, truly gives this city of Boston the title of ” Titletown U. S. A.”.

I love the game of hockey, played the game when I was younger and with my favorite team so deep in the playoffs, like two wins away from winning Lord’s Stanley’s cup deep, it is very exciting right now, with all eyes on this special team. A team that has battled adversity all season, a team that has bonded together more than a team, they have bonded like a family on and off the ice and has been fun too watch this bonding all season. This team has been resilient all season and watching them in game two and game three, proves just how resilient they are, with an ugly performance in two, and a great performance in three. Would love to see this team finish mission sixteen, as not just for the reward for the players on a great season, but for the third time in the same season, the city of Boston can cue the Duck boats once again, for this type of celebration will never get old, especially with my favorite team.

” In team sports there is never an I, as it takes the whole team to work as one and become a true champion”

” The Stanley cup is the most prestigious and hardest trophy to win of all the sports, which makes hockey the coolest game on ice”

” To be a G. O. A. T. of your sport means that you are the Greatest Of All Time”

” Mission 16 in the game of hockey starts with the playoffs as you are on a mission to win 16 more games to be a true champion of the sport you play and love”

The making of a Legend and a Dynasty

a man wearing a football uniform: Getty

” Hello Mr. Kraft, my name is Tom Brady and the best decision this organization has ever made”. This is how Tom Brady introduced himself to Bob Kraft when they first met and now, the rest is history.

You don’t just wake up one day and suddenly you are a Legend at whatever you wish, it takes work and not just work but, long, hard, dedicated work. First you have to explore your options, try many things, til you find that one thing you not only love, but really want to excel in excellence at becoming the best at whatever that thing is you choose to be your craft.

Tom played baseball growing up, but being a strong New England sports fan, I am so glad he decided to love the sport of football. Tom’s work ethnic is second to none, he is the first one at practice and the last one to leave everyday, even when he is home, he watches film on the next team he is playing, he studies them inside and out, so he can read them like a book, then pick them apart with great passes to his teammates. Tom may be a gifted Quarterback in the NFL, but that gift came with a lot of hard, dedicated work.

Tom came to the Patriots like all other players in the league, through the draft, but Tom was drafted so far down the depth chart, that he was like an after thought that, hey maybe we can pick him up and put on the practice squad, to basically just go through the reps and maybe see what he can do? Well Tom studied the ways of the Patriots and the league to the point, when Drew Bledsoe went down with the injury, Tom never looked back and seized the day, taking the Patriots to the Superbowl and beyond.

It is not just Tom working hard to become a legend within the NFL and helping the Patriots become a dynasty within the league, that also comes from one of the greatest Coaches ever to coach in the NFL and that is, Bill Belichek. Bill like Tom eat, sleeps and drinks the game of football, he studies the game as well, giving him the knowledge, to create the most high tech playbooks within the sport of football. Now if Bill was a poker player, he would be the best, as he never shows his hand, until the time is right, which keeps the other team, not only confused, but keeps them guessing as well. Bill knows how to recruit talent, just as much as unloading the talent, when they are on their down slide. He loves a player that is not afraid to play any position on the field, as well as……..he is one of the few, that still like the position of Full back on the team and he grabs a player that is the toughest at that position, of which Devlin excels perfectly at the position of full back, for the New England.

The New England patriots the last 20 years have a legendary Coach and Quarterback, that work very hard daily, which has earned them the biggest title of them all and that is, earning the title of becoming a Dynasty within the sport of football. A Dynasty of anything takes a lot of hard work , not just for one Individual, but for many who make up that team. Bill Belichek recruited many different players through the years he has been here in New England, with the top recruit being a guy named………. Tom Brady. These two have been the common denominator on the team, with many different numerators over the years and with Bill putting a great system in place, the rest is history as the Patriots, year after year, have become the team to beat by all the other teams in the league.

” Achieving excellence in anything takes a lot of very hard work and doesn’t come that easy”

” A Dynasty is like and orchestra, with all on the same page and the same note, with a great Conductor bringing them together in harmony”

” You can’t have the dynasty without the legend and without the great supporting cast there is no legend”

” With winning breeds hatred, but if you want to win and become champion, then step up to the plate and beat a true champion”

The Patriots got “Played” at Hard Rock Stadium




” Superman has the Kryptonite, as the Patriots have Miami stadium” 

                                                                                         *** Bowlingchef ***

 


             This season of the NFL, is one with many flops and turns  by each team. The team mostly in question here are the New England Patriots, as this is my home team and one that I have seen much worse from, than the last few years. I remember this team losing more then they won and the favorite quote year after year was, ” wait til next year”. Now this quote was used by all the Boston team fans, but look at the city now, as they are known for the many titles as “Titletown”, with the Patriots and the Red Sox leading the way. 

      

               Yesterday’s Patriots game…………. True it was a heart breaker, but with all seriousness, it was one of those plays that does and will rear it’s ugly head, on to any playing field, of any sport. Today within all the Sports medias, they are all going to be the ” Monday Quarterbacks”, they are all going to be chatting as if they are the experts and all else are second to them, what I say to them is, it is you and your drama that all the sports can do without, so let the players play, keep the drama to yourselves. 

                  Tom Brady is one of those Athletes that does not come along very often, so instead of trying to predict of his retirement, by being overly critical of each play, simply just sit back and enjoy the ride, for the ride will not last forever. It has been twenty years and counting, that Tom Brady has brought the New England Patriots from a team of, not even mentioned in the sports world, to a team of ” Champions”. Tom Brady and Bill Belichek are Winners and when one makes a mistake of calling for the wrong play, OMG!!! The World is going to end? They are human like you and I, they are going to make mistakes like you and I, it is when we correct our mistakes, that has us grow better and stronger moving forward on our path through this journey of life, with Bill and Tom making fewer mistakes over those twenty years, that has us all in the denial part of admitting to the seasons of New England Patriot football before the Belichek and Brady era. 

                    Sports is no different than any other aspect of our lives, there is no such thing as perfection, there will be mistakes made, the difference between the Patriots over the years, compared to other NFL teams, they knew how to correct their mistakes quickly, so they wouldn’t get in the way of their winning seasons. Those that are very successful in life, they to make mistakes as we do, just that they are the Belichek and the Brady’s of the real world, they quickly correct their mistakes, so they can move forward better and stronger, everyday throughout the journey of life. With this last mistake of guarding against the hail Mary and putting Gronk out there on Defense, yes I can see the theory of having someone with good hands and being tall to deflect and knock down the ball, they did this with success when Randy Moss was on the team, but with this changing NFL, you as well need to adapt and change with it, or become the Patriots of old, when the “L’s” would outweigh the “W’s”. To be a Champion in anything, you need to adapt and change, as the New England Patriots, under Bill Belichek, did this better than anybody, which is why they have five Superbowl victories out of eight trips, Tom Brady with five rings, going one beyond his Idol Joe Montana. Instead of hating on this team so quickly and bringing more unwanted drama too us, lets remember on key thing, ” In Bill and Tom we trust”. 

” Football is a team sport that is a chess match between the coaches, with the players and their talents, helping the coach make all the right moves, with an occasional over looked play, becoming the miracle play”

”   We all have that something that gets in the way, it gets frustrating, by staying true to who you are, we can overcome that something” 

           

New England Patriots……….( do your job)

TB12 the brand……… Tom Brady is one of those kind of Athletes that doesn’t come around all that often, much like Micheal Jordan in Basketball, or Bobby Orr in hockey, These Individuals defy the odds, rewrite the record books and come with more raw talent, then even they themselves are surprised by their greatness, but yet ask them of their greatness and they will never admit to any of their success, only praising their teammates, for helping them with their success.

Tom Brady may be the Quarter back and player for the New England Patriots, but he would be nothing without a great leader or Maestro of the orchestra, a person that is so brilliant in not just looking at football as a game, but taking it too the next level, always being three moves ahead of his opponents and treating the game on the field just like a chess game, with each position of the chess board being strategically placed, to keep that competitive advantage, plus making sure each of the players buy into the, ” Do your job” mentality.

Now you can’t have a great quarterback or a great coach, without a great Owner, someone who is just as dedicated and competitive as the coach and quarterback tandem. The Owner is where it all starts and not just an owner that invests in a team to make good on his investment, but an owner that turns his investment into a gold mine for many years to come, with many generations reaping the benefits and joy of his investment.

With Robert Kraft…….. Yes it is true he is a very successful Business man, yes he has a lot of wealth and can afford many exotic things, but he is also a man who is still in touch with where he has come from, he also had season tickets to the Patriots, back in a time where winning games were far and few between, so he knows through experience, just how we true Patriot fans have suffered til now. Bob Kraft is one of the greatest owners of all sports and as a business man, he has surrounded himself with the smartest of football minds, which has turned the New England patriots into a very successful organization.

The best move the Kraft’s have made was, bringing in Bill Belichek. This man has become one of the game of football’s all time best coaches and by best, I mean more like a genius in understanding the game inside the game. His philosophy to the game may seem high tech to most, but to those who understand, it is actually very simple like just, ” Do your job”. Now the so called sports Media may not like him or his press conferences, simply because they can’t get that much info from him, or made too look just as stupid, with each stupid question they ask him, but if you ask me? The so called sports Media totally gets what they deserve, as they try to look smarter than the smartest coach within the history of the NFL.

Then there is Brady? call him what you want, but there is no denying him the title of, ” The Greatest of all Time……….the G. O. A. T”. This is a guy that was drafted so far down in the draft, no other team wanted to give him a chance and seriously! look at him now, not too mention of just how jealous some players may be of him, to the point where they have to say fake things or make things up to try to knock him off his game? I got news for you!!!  When there is ice in your veins, it is very hard to be rattled, or to be taken out of focus, not too mention when you are as competitive as Tom Brady, you not only try to be as perfect as you can be, but you also look for perfection in all those around you. We have seen Brady lose it on the sidelines and the so called media try’s to spin it as Tom is far from a team player, Huh!!! If only they knew that this is the fuel that feeds his competitive fire, when things in the game aren’t going as planned, yes he may get a bit vocal, but this is only his competitiveness that is trying to light a spark underneath his teammates, so they can wake up and play as they have been coached during the long hard practices.

Say what you want of the New England Patriots, but what I say is, ever since Bob Kraft bought this team, he has not only made good on his investment, he has turned a sports franchise around, where the winning environment around town has become so infectious,  that the other other pro teams in town, are doing what they can in their sports, to be like the New England Patriots. Not everybody can be like the Patriots, just like their is only one Bob Kraft and I am happy that I can enjoy the fruits of his labor, while the Patriots keep winning not only games, but Championships year after year.

” What I say to the other teams is, ” if you want to be a champion” then step up to the plate and beat a champion”

” The competitive fire is within us all, but unless you unleash it, you will never experience being great at what you do”

” The great owner/the great coach/the great quarterback, call it what you want, but without these as the main ingredients, you have nothing to build greatness around you”

” Instead of hating on a champion, then step up to the plate and beat the champion”

” Say what you want of the Patriots but what I say is,  We are experiencing history before our eyes, so sit back and enjoy the ride while it lasts”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Take a knee…… make that two and pray for forgiveness

” The crown of Jesus Christ is everywhere, we just have to look more deeply into what we see, to truly see it”

***Bowlingchef***

 

Let’s think about this for a minute, time to end all the crap, end all the unnecessary drama, stop this epidemic within the NFL of taking a knee, especially doing so of a symbol that is dedicated to all the men and women that have died for the country of the flag you disrespect. You play a game in which you are paid big money for and now that you mention it, you definitely are not worthy of the contract you signed.

Maybe we all should take two knees and kneel before God and ask for his forgiveness, for the way we have taken his creation and turned it into this ugly Society today. God is definitely  not happy with us and all the fighting, bickering and the disrespect of one another needs to stop, so we all can move forward in peace , to be better and stronger as we walk our paths through this journey of life.

RESPECT………is the word of the day and if you can’t show it, than please stay home and don’t associate with those that do. Now I don’t mean being respectful to the face of others and then stabbing them in the back when they turn away from you, I mean being respectful from the heart and doing so, cause you have a love for all those around you. Those that disrespect the Flag and the national Anthem of this country, should seriously go to foreign soil with our troops, sit within a fox hole with them, as live fire goes over head and so close, that it not only buzzes your ear, but makes your hair stand up on top of your head, not too mention that you can’t get up to go to the bathroom or even cook a meal for yourself. This is what our troops go through, not just for us back here in this country, but for the good of all, that walk a path through this journey of life.

Respect is a two way street, if you want me to respect you, than you need to respect me back and not superficially, but from your heart as I would you. I get the meaning of the first amendment in this country, but there are some that have twisted around what it truly is all about, not only to fit their agendas, but to shove their opinions down your throat, then cry when  you do back at them. We are blessed here in America, to have some from the past, put together these Amendments and the Declaration of Independence for us, so we can walks our paths better and stronger than they did. We are also blessed over the history of this country, to have many brave men and woman, that have fought and died fighting for not only of what they believe in, but have died fighting for all of who that walk a path of this journey, within this great country of America and beyond. Time we all start not only showing our respect back at them, but showing more respect toward one another, as well as showing more love and empathy as well.

Jesus Christ came to us and not only walked this journey with us, he also taught us many things, he showed us how to walk our paths correctly, so we can find that path of righteousness, which is full of peace, happiness and love. The way we are going within this Society, is not only disrespecting each other, it is also disrespecting Jesus Christ and everything he taught us during his journey with us. It is never to late to make things right in the eyes of God, he will forgive us for all we have done, all we need to do is, instead of taking to one knee in protest, let’s take to two knee’s and pray for God’s forgiveness, so we all can get back on track, get back our love of selves and those around us, get back the respect we lack today, so we all can walk our paths of this journey through life, not just as Jesus showed us, but to truly feel his love within our hearts, then share this love with each other. Then as we do this, we all can walk in peace and happiness always throughout this journey.

 

” Respect is a two way street, the time is now to drive properly on the street so we all can see the true beauty that is in front of us”

” It is true that the 1st amendment gives us the right to voice our opinions, but not the right to shove them down our throats”

” Instead of taking a knee and disrespecting, lets take two knee’s and kneel then ask for God’s forgiveness”

” We have all lost our way along this journey through life, the time is now to ask God for forgiveness and find our way back to the path of righteousness”

 

Sports and Politics don’t mix.

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

Sports are no way the place for any type of Politics, we all have our views, but when we force these views on those around us, simply shows nothing but all the disrespect we have for one another. Sports………… no matter of what sport you play or watch, is all about the competition and trying to be the very best that you can be. In today’s sports world and with all the advertising/promotion dollars being thrown around, now you have athletes making gigantic amounts of money and thinking that…… with all this money, they now have the right to use their platform, to shove their views down our throats. ” politics have no business in sports”, sports have no business within politics”, let these two quotes sink in, get over yourself and simply play the sport, for which you set out to play.

Political Correction has gotten way out of hand and it’s time to bury it, so we can all heal properly from it’s effects. The fact is if you don’t like someones comments, then walk away and don’t listen, or simply change the channel, to something more educational away from the crap. This has come to the point of, we are afraid to say anything, because we don’t want to offend anybody, We are a troubled Society today, time we all accept it. so we can truly change it and move forward instead of backwards.

Last night at a ball game, you had a few Demented Individuals hanging a sign with the ” Racism” word in it, then there is a sports reporter on ESPN coming out publicly and calling our President a White Supremacist”, Really!!! Are you FREAKING kidding me!!! I have really had enough of this crap and it is time for we the people to grow up, be smarter and simply learn to love one another once again. ” Love is easy cause it’s within us”, ” Hate is harder cause it is learned”, as we walk our path through this journey of life.

All while our now President Trump was running for the office, you had so much hate coming out against him and even still today, President Trump was elected by the true smart Individuals within this country, okay he may be a little harsh with his words, but you know what, this is what Political correction has done to this Society. it has made us all weak to the true meaning of the spoken word, it has made us all hide within ourselves, instead of coming out, expressing our true feelings and then moving forward better and stronger, I stand with President Trump and truly want to ” Make America Great Again”. The best way to achieve this is, bury Political correction, bury all the hate, respect one another again and finally, we need to come together in unity, to share the love that is within us, with each other once again.

Sports is no place to hold any agenda for anything political, sports is a place to play a sport for which you love, while you work together with your teammates in unity, then when everybody plays together, works hard together and simply try’s their very best ( which makes you feel good at the end of the day), your chances of winning a Championship will increase drastically, which will then have you work harder and become a true leader of your teammates, plus will teach you to become a great leader, when the sport is done and you are back walking a path through this journey of life.

Now ESPN is a sport news station on cable, when they first started it was all sports 24/7. When sports is brought to us in the right way, it is a great thing, to help us all cope with our daily struggles, it helps us become better along our journey, when we watch others trying to be at their very best, in order to win at their chosen sport. Lately ESPN has become all about drama and sharing their political views with the rest of us, you tell me where this belongs in sports, let alone…………Belongs on any sports news station. No matter if your watching the daily local news, or the daily sports news, being a real Reporter has changed drastically and there are no real Reporter’s out there anymore, as they are getting paid by a Communication company to report their agenda and if they sway from that, then their career is over as a reporter. A true Reporter…………reports the facts, not piecing together words for an agenda, if you can not report and write facts, then maybe you should look for another career? Oh wait!!! they are too lazy to do any kind of manual labor.

To bring this topic in a different direction, their is a daily talk show called the “VIEW”. This is one show that not only will I not watch, but I think this show should be taken off the air and the ones who call themselves a Host, should be banned from being in front of any camera anymore. This show and the panel they have on the stage, do nothing but spew the hate of anything and everything they can, while they shove their “Views” down our throats. I got a news flash for the ones who host the View, who really cares what you spew, as the only thing that comes out of your mouth, is the same thing that comes out of the back side of my anatomy. We all walk a path along this journey through life and when we love one another, work together in unity, we to can win a championship, like those who are on a winning sports team. plus we all can walk in Peace and be flooded with happiness throughout the journey.

 

” Sports and politics don’t mix and we all need to grow up/ be smarter within this society”

” Sports teaches us to be competitive and work together in unity, so we all can try to be the very best and be within a winning team”

” An agenda is something we have on our plate as we walk our paths, an agenda is not the twisting of words to spread the drama and hate”

” ESPN is a sports news station, it is not about being like the local news that spreads drama for an agenda”

” Political correction has weakened us to the point that we are hiding within ourselves, instead of truly being of who we are”

 

Strong powerful leadership

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

The American Bald Eagle is a big, strong and powerful bird that rules the sky, this bird isn’t our symbol because it is weak, this bird is our symbol, cause it is a true symbol for those of which it represents.  I love this picture on so many levels, but the biggest thing is, just how majestic this bird is, not too mention of how cool this picture is of the Eagle watching out for all that is below.

President Donald Trump last night with his speech, showed just what a true Leader is all about, someone that is not afraid to stand his ground for all who he serves, someone that knows how to delegate and get the job done. Someone who is not afraid to stand up to a Bully or a Terrorist and someone who is smart enough to give our armed service men and woman, the tools and resources needed, so they can do their jobs correctly. You want to end all the ugliness that is around us all today, it starts with a true Leader, that knows how to lead and has all our best interests in mind with his actions.

You want an example of failed Leadership, you don’t have to look any further, then the failed Leadership of the National Football League, here is a guy by the name of Roger Goodell. This guy collects a handsome salary, but yet lacks the skills needed to lead an organization. Right now in the NFL you have player’s that will refuse to stand to the National Anthem? Really!!! These players are getting paid ridiculous amounts of money playing a game. These players are blessed with a talent and the ability to play a sport that they love, but yet they are so dumb when they use their sport, to highlight their platform. There is a time and a place for everything, just that a sporting event is no place to protest against the music of your country, especially when your getting paid big money within that Country you are playing in. I am aware of this thing called ” freedom of speech”, but when your playing a sport you love and for big money as well, not too mention looked up to as a role model to guide the young and steer them in the right direction, you have to pick your battles wisely and do your protests in other venues. Now if the NFL had a true Leader, just maybe these Individuals who refuse to stand for the National Anthem of a Country, who many have died, just so they can get paid big money to play a sport which they love, will no longer get to play their sport. It’s a respect thing and if you want others to respect you, then you need to respect all that is around you. Just maybe the Coaches of these teams should stand up to these Individuals and simply not let them play and have them become a bench warmer, for those who show respect for the National Anthem of the country for which they play.

President Donald Trump is quickly becoming one of the best Presidents of my lifetime. He is someone that does what he says and says what he means. President Trump is a Business man yes………. but to be as successful as he has been, you not only have to be smart, you have to be able to be a great leader, that can adapt to any situation, as well as know how to delegate to those around you, so you can focus on what you need to focus on, then you can walk your path of this journey through life, to be better and stronger moving forward.

 

” Some may be born to be a leader, but a true leader is never born”

” The American Bald Eagle……. So majestic but yet so powerful, a great symbol for America showing strength and freedom, while soaring the skies so graceful”

” Failed leadership will never work, as it will only compound the issues and bring out the ugliness instead of beauty”

” To be respected you first need to respect moving forward throughout this journey”

 

Small Town ….. Big City

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

We all walk a path of which we choose, along this journey through life. Some may live within a small town, while others choose to live within a big city. The journey may be the same, but the paths we walk are different, depending on each of us and what we want to achieve along our paths. Now there are no paths along this journey that come smooth and grooved, as we all have to work hard at grooming our paths, so we can be happy and at peace. These paths will bruise us and knock us down from time to time, but the paths should not dictate on how we walk along them? Although we do get caught up within all the crap and get stuck within the ruts of the paths, then we struggle with trying to get out of the ruts, which then has us, out of focus on what we truly want along the path.

Now as we walk through this journey on our paths, we do need to work, so we than can make ends meet and afford what we want, but some as they work for someone or maybe a Corporate company, want to do things their way? Well that’s not how it works, we need to do it their way, as they are the ones paying us weekly, so we can afford what we want and do as we want on our days off. The same goes for our elected officials within our Governments, these Individuals will do and say anything to gain our votes, then when they get into office, they proceed to forget who put them there and move forward with their own agendas, not too mention we also pay for them and all their trips while they ” serve us”. Then they will not work with their fellow elected officials as they should, because they are too busy with the attitude of,   ” all about me”. The big problem with our elected Officials is, they continue to lie to us as they say, ” I am here for you and I work for you”. I think the biggest problem is we the people, as we fear putting new blood within the office simply because, we don’t want to take the risk of putting someone in place, that can not handle the job? So we then continue with the status Quo and then complain til we are blue in the face, because we know they are screwing us within the Government.

We are so afraid of what others will think of us when we show we can’t handle anything, that we then do what ever we can, in order to not show failure……… only because through failure comes ridicule and gossip talk. We are so afraid of failure, that we then hide our mistakes when we make them ( yes we all make mistakes), then we point the finger elsewhere, just to divert our mistakes away from us. The biggest mistakes our elected officials make is, to tun for an office that not only they can not handle, but they then get lost within the job of serving themselves, instead of the job of serving those who voted them into the office.

Now living within a big city we have to work harder at maintaining a certain lifestyle, while those within the small town, have less pressure and don’t have to work as hard, to live in a more simplistic lifestyle. We all want great success and to achieve great things, but within this broken Society we all live, we all have truly lost what real success is and have lost our way on what we need to achieve, in order to have that success. Sometimes when our paths beat us up and bring us great pain, we then get lost within the clouds of our judgments and totally lose sight of what we want to achieve, so we then can have success.

This journey through life comes with no guarantees, as we have to work hard for what we want, we will also make many mistakes, although we need to own up to those mistakes and not hide them then point the finger away from ourselves. There will be many jobs that will confuse the heck out of us and have us tackle things we can not handle, that is when we need to be strong, admit to ourselves and to others that we need help, so we all can work together, instead of banging heads and causing chaos around us, so we all can walk our paths through this journey of life in happiness and peace.

 

”   Little big town or big city, you take your pick, but which ever you pick you still need to work together to move forward stronger”

” There is no path that is groomed, we have to work hard at grooming our paths, to have success at whatever we want to achieve”

” Our elected Officials need to get back to who put them into their office, instead of trying to forget them and move forward with their own agenda”

” We may becomes confused and out of focus along our paths, which even more of a reason to unclog the clouds of our judgments and focus harder along our paths”

 

The Good …………….. The Bad

Hypocrisy is the word of the day, when we talk about our elected officials within this Country, especially when we talk of the far left Socialist Progressives. These far left Socialist Progressives will do anything to have us be dependent on them, so they can keep all the power within the Washington power game, this even includes…… coming up with some fake agendas and charges for our new President, just to stop him from truly helping the American Citizen.

Now I could name them, but I won’t stoop to their level and become like them, as they know exactly who they are. I don’t know about you, but when an Individual gets elected to the highest office on the land, we all have to suck it up, whether you voted for him or not and not only respect him, but support him, so he can do the best job he knows how, so we all can become better and stronger moving forward. Okay President Trump may not be a traditional Politician, but he is a very successful business man and may be just what this country needs, so our economy can truly get back on track and start to reduce some of this ridiculous national debt we have. President Trump may also have a different approach of the way he speaks, only because he believes not in Political Correction, this approach is just what the Doctor ordered for us all right now, simply because Political Correction has made us all weak and vulnerable.

What most have totally forgotten is, all this crap and the hearings happening right now within Washington DC, is costing each of the hard working American Tax Payer millions each day they continue, not too mention slowing or stopping President Trump from truly helping us moving forward.   Because of the far left Socialist Progressives and the way they operate by trying to control everything around them, if we let them have their way then just maybe the beauty around us like in this picture, may cease to exist? Because they will take it away from us and only they can go out and enjoy this beauty? This is what they want, for us to be totally dependent on them, so they than can continue with their fake agendas and bring this country down to the point we are all in Poverty. You want to end up like Russia, where there leader takes billions away from the people and places it within his personal bank account? It will happen in a Society of far left Socialist Progressives and instead of having a President that will work for the people of the country, we will then have a Dictator that will not only take from us, but will gain all the power over us, whether we like it or not, then the Constitution our fore fathers worked hard at creating for us, will then become null and void, leaving us all…………up shit’s creek without a paddle.

This taking to the streets in protest has gotten way out of control, especially when someone leaves their home in one state, goes to another state and sleeps in his car, then takes to a ball field, asks if this was a certain party out there playing, then shooting at anything in sight, just because he didn’t like the out come of the Presidential election? COME ON NOW PEOPLE!!! Time we all grow up and get back to respecting one another again, time we get back to using our Common Sense again, which is far from Common within this broken Society we all live. A lot of us have wandered away from the church and stopped worshiping as we once did and it totally shows, with just how this Society is moving forward. One Congress Woman comes out and says of gun control. ” if we don’t sell guns in the stores, then they won’t be on the streets”? Well I got something for you, drugs like Heroin and cocaine are not sold in stores, so how is it that they are being sold on the streets and why are they killing many with the over doses? The Hypocrisy is so bad within our elected officials it is not only sickening, we have become the laughing stock throughout the World.

We all walk a path through this journey of life, true we all get to choose which path we want to walk, but we still have to walk together, work together and unite together, so these paths can be as smooth as we can make them, when we don’t work together and we don’t respect one another, then these paths will always be rough and the walking will come with much pain and hurt. The time is now  before it becomes too late and we all fall within cracks of the paths, fall to all the far left Socialist Progressives, which will end controlling everything we do, including just how we walk our paths through this journey of life.

 

” Hypocrisy is the word of the day, time to understand and learn of it before it is too late”

” The Washington  power game is a game that our elected officials will screw all they can just to reach the top and finish the game with all the power”

” A broken Society brings much pain and hurt to us all, leaving us to battered and bruised to continue our paths of this journey”

” Common Sense is just us being smarter as we move forward, it is nothing to common, as it is just us having more respect of one another”

” Walk together, work together, unite together, the recipe isn’t hard to follow, just that we have to have all the ingredients so we can  create a beautiful gourmet meal”

 

True Leadership qualities……

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERA

What makes a great Leader? We all tend to link being a leader with power and control, we get caught up in the mix that, Leader’s have to be in high positions, like, the President of a country, a CEO of a corporate company, or maybe an Owner of a sports team to name a few. Some of the greatest Leaders do so quietly with no fan fare, or looking for any kind or recognition.

Everybody has their own kind of Leadership ways, just that we don’t give ourselves enough credit for the way we Lead, we also don’t tap into our souls enough and try to find a Leadership role that best suits ourselves. Not all of us are suited to be a true leader and not all of us can be a Leader, as in the old saying, ” to many chiefs spoil the tribe” or ” to many Chef’s ruin the soup”. You don’t find a true Leader, as True Leader’s simply rise to the role with their actions and not their words.

Look at a guy like Tom Brady, the best Quarter Back in the history of the NFL. He doesn’t look to be more powerful or above the rest of his Teammates, he just shows up in practice and works hard each and every day, then executes that hard work on Game day. He shows his Leadership on the field, while he brings his team into the lead, to move forward with a “W” in the win column. All his Teammates adore him, cause he is so humble and approachable by all. Tom also gives advice to his Teammates, instead of saying ” do it this way or you won’t touch the football”. Okay it is true you may see him loud and yelling on the side lines on game day, but he does so only to wake up the team, so they can execute better, giving the team a better chance of winning the game.

A true leader leads by example, without losing the respect of those they try to lead. Raymond Bourque of the Boston Bruins was another great Leader, even though he wore the “C” on his jersey, it didn’t mean anything to him, as he showed up everyday practiced and played hard, so when his Teammates saw that, they to practiced and played hard, making the whole team a better team moving forward. Ray was a quiet guy that stayed out of the limelight, but with his actions on the ice, that is what spoke much louder than any words at all. Bobby Orr was the same way as he also let his actions speak for himself, they didn’t want to be singled out as a special player and they always spoke of the team/ put the team before themselves all the time.

True Leader’s never look for any fame or recognition, they never look to be more powerful than or even try to have all the power over the rest. A true Leader at the end of the day goes home like you and I and does his chores, like the rest of us. A Leader that we all take for granted and never give enough credit to, are our own parent’s. these Individuals help you grow in many ways, they show you by example on how to treat other’s, they guide you as you walk your path of this journey through life, they don’t just love you deeply and they don’t just quietly lead you on your path, they teach you all they know, as they to were led by their Parent’s, as they walked their paths through this journey of life. Parent’s don’t look for any recognition or any spotlight, they never look for any rewards, all they want is to lead you into prosperity, so you can be the best you can be, as you walk your path through this journey of life.

 

” A true Leader is a rare breed and never looks for any recognition or fame”

” A real and true Leader, leads by example and never pushes his power on to another”

” Leadership is never about power and control over other’s, as a true Leader knows how to make others better moving forward”

” True Leaders let their actions speak more loudly than themselves, making all around them feel even more special then the Leader himself”
