Tolerance and Progress

For Audio Click HereThree guys walk into a bar, oneís a Jew, oneís a Muslim and oneís a Christian. Now remove the word bar and input the word basketball court and you actually have a snapshot of my daily life. Every evening around 7pm I meet up with my friends and we play basketball. Normally, we only like to play on each otherís team and if there were ever any altercations on the court, we are the first to step up for each other. This unspoken bond is an example of tolerance and progress at its best.We are an eclectic bunch of gentlemen and even though we have differences, we embrace our similarities. We donít need to speak about the years of fighting known as the crusades, which would have people of our religions fighting each other upon sight. We donít need to speak about the holocaust, which shines a dark light on our history and unnecessary persecution. We donít even speak about the fear some people have that comes from the perception of the Muslim religion. See these things are divisive and in order for us to keep winning on the basketball court and in our friendship, we need to stand together.Even though we make jokes about each otherís differences, itís all in good fun because we know that our differences are only important enough to laugh at. We are only serious when the basketball game is on the line and we need to score the winning basket. In life we believe that in order for everyone to progress we must recognize our differences but embrace our similarities. This is the untold bond that we all subconsciously agreed to when we decided to be friends.I accept my friends for who they are but I do find time to question them on their religious beliefs as well as give them my perspective on religion. These fact-finding sessions are usually just informal moments when we just ask each other questions to learn even more. We seem to thrive and grow the more we know about each other and therefore the bonds grow stronger.This is much more then I ever expected in life since I grew up around people who were like me and never had the opportunity to embrace others who werenít like me. I went to church with only people who shared my beliefs so I could never ask other people why they believed what they believe. I only associated with people who did the things I did therefore I never had the opportunity to ask other people what they like to do. This is the best of embracing my new friends because they are so different from me but share the best similarity in basketball. Therefore, let me retell my joke the correct way. Three guys walk onto a basketball court, oneís a Jew named Reid, oneís a Muslim named Rasheed, and oneís a Christian named J. Success. Welcome to Tuesday night, itís 7pm and itís time to play some basketball.Success is Inevitable...So Get Ready...www.iamsuccess.net

I am beyond words with what I have witnessed today. I knew that history would be made today but I didn't know that I would be overwhelmed when I saw it. I am beyond words and beyond belief in what has occurred today. I know that it's time to get to work but for a moment I am caught between the happiness of what has occurred and the gratefulness for those that suffered to make this possible.This is a great day for America and a great day for progress.For video click HereSuccess is Inevitable...So Get Ready...www.iamsuccess.net

Dont Teach Me...Tell Me

For Audio click hereWhen I was a child I would ask my parents where the sun would go at night. I couldn't understand why the sun had to go away every night for no apparent reason. I knew that when I would wakeup in the morning the sun would be there for me to go outside and play but for some strange reason as the day progressed, the sun would leave me. When the sun fully left for the day then my playtime would come to an end and I would have to get home quickly, always before the street lights came on. My mother tried to explain to me that the sun will come back tomorrow and I will be able to play again, but it wasn't until the sun came back a few times that I finally believed her. I could have believed her based on what she said but more often than not experience has to replace words as our teacher because of our lack of understanding and faith.When hard times are visiting our daily lives all we see are dark nights followed by dreary days and both have no light in sight. "A night is only as dark as you think it appears", are great words usually quoted by people that are not going through present difficulties. To hear the night is only as dark as we think it appears seems to have no helpful effects because we believe this is the darkest night that we have seen thus far. We also believe that since our life is going through this dark period, there is no way it could be lighter if we could somehow change the way we "thought" about it, what does our thinking have to do with the darkness we see and are experiencing. Again, we see that even though the words stated are true, it's the experiences that we are having that have the most impact on us and thus we disregard great words as just letters spoken that have no application to our lives.When attempting to endure a difficult period we want to often just say, "don't teach me just tell me", but the question is, will we really learn from words alone? In school we learn lessons, facts, methods and quotes from the words of an instructor but we are given tangible tests because there needs to be validation of words learned. In life we desire to get the great results but never want to walk the difficult paths that those goals require. It takes a great amount of faith to walk through a valley, with a map that says take the difficult path, and believe that at the end of that path is the increase that you so dearly seek. The true lesson seems to be learned not when someone tells you that the increase awaits you, not when you read the map and see the actual steps to take to the increase and not when you are walking the path and cannot see any increase. The true lesson is learned when you obtain the increase that was promised to you and look back and realize that everything said to you was true, then and only then will you go tell someone else how to walk in faith and hopefully they will believe your words.Success is Inevitable...So Get Ready...www.iamsuccess.net
