Modell’s Undercover Boss Episode
Homeless Employee Angel
Gets Another Chance To Start Over

I’ve watched a lot of Undercover Boss episodes and each one has inspired me in different ways.    I will never forget this one.

The CEO of Modell’s went to a Modell’s store to find out how the store was doing and ended up meeting one of his employees named Angel.   In the back room she tells him that she is homeless and he could not believe it.

Being a CEO of a major company is very time consuming but when you actually take the time to get to know your employees it can create a company culture like no other.    Is it all about the bottom line or is it also about your people?   When you have a loyal team of people that actually care about your business, the customers will notice and so will the competition.

I was looking for this video all over and could only find this international one where the quality isn’t great but it is enough to show you why I loved it so much.

J.K. Rowling Speaks at Harvard Commencement
Harry Potter Author

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J._K._Rowling

This is so amazing.  This made me cry.

  1.  Benefits of Failure – sometimes it is the only way to really learn.
  2. Imagination – “IMAGINATION is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation. In its arguably most transformative and revelatory capacity, it is the POWER that enables us to EMPATHIZE with humans whose experiences we have never shared. “

-Rosemary

It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not lived at all - in which case, you fail by default. -J.K. Rowling Harry Potter

NEVER GIVE UP
Motivational Video

Limits are an illusion.   Don’t let ANYONE get in the way of your dreams.    Even if people laugh at your dream or make a remark that you don’t agree with – FOCUS.   You deserve to follow your dreams.    Get to know yourself.    What do you love?

For years, I have been strengthening my mind.   It has taken a lot of work.   There were many times when it was tough but I got back up.   That is what it is all about – getting back up.   We all can fall but you cannot stay down.   Your mind can lift you even if you don’t feel the strength to get up.  Mind muscle.

Nobody knows your struggles.    Only you.   Only you can fight for what you want.   Only you can make a decision today to stop focusing on external factors and focus on you.   It doesn’t matter where you came from.   It doesn’t matter how much education you have.   It doesn’t matter what you think you are lacking.   Don’t compare yourself to others and put yourself down because you are not where they are.

Today, decide what you want.

  1.  Where are you today?
  2. Where do you want to be?
  3. How are you going to get there?

-Rosemary

Believe in you.   That is all you need.  YOU are good enough despite your past, despite your negative self talk.

You are perfectly imperfect and that is ok.

Homeless man called a bum, this will change your perspective

I watched this video last year and it really touched my heart.   We never know where we will end up in life.   Where our journey will take us.

I was raised with not a lot of money.   My dad worked so hard to provide and put food on the table.    I saw how both my mom and my dad struggled at times but they did it.   My sister and I will forever be grateful.

Sometimes people deserve a chance.   A chance to start over.

We sometimes take things for granted like the bed we sleep in, the food we eat, the bathroom we shower in.   Others don’t have that privilege.    At times we complain about the little things that are insignificant.

We don’t know what we don’t know.   If we have never walked in a person’s shoes how would we know what that person goes through?   This man in the video says it is humiliating to ask for money.   Imagine being in his shoes.   How do you get a job when you have no place to live or a phone or even clean clothes?

I’ve read a lot of stories of homeless people that were actually not homeless and made a lot of money by conning people into believing that they were homeless.    No wonder some people don’t give to the homeless because of these individuals that were con artist.

My grandma taught me a life lesson one day when i was real young.   She gave this man that looked drunk money and I asked her “Why did you give him money?  He probably will get more drunk” and she said “You do not know that man’s story and I am giving him money because I want to.   What he does with it is his choice.”  She impacted me because it is true everyone has a story and everyone deserves to not be judged.   We sometimes take a risk if we give money to a stranger but I usually am ok with taking that risk.   I hope in my heart that if I give a person money that they use it for what they need at that moment in their lives.

Watch this video.   Life is not easy.   We all have a  story.   One day I will give tons of money to the homeless.   I can’t wait for that day!

Glorious (feat. Skylar Grey)

Lyrics

You know I’m back like I never left (I never left)
Another sprint, another step (another step)
Another day, another breath (another breath)
Been chasing dreams, but I never slept (I never slept)

I got a new attitude and a lease on life
And some peace of mind
Seek and I find I can sleep when I die
Wanna piece of the pie, grab the keys to the ride
And shit I’m straight
I’m on my wave, I’m on my wave
Get out my wake, I’m running late, what can I say?
I heard you die twice, once when they bury you in the grave
And the second time is the last time that somebody mentions your name
So when I leave here on this earth, did I take more than I gave?
Did I look out for the people or did I do it all for fame?
Legend, it’s exodus searching for euphoria
Trudging through the mud to find the present, no ignoring us
Got 20, 000 deep off in the street like we some warriors
My mama told me never bow your head, woo!

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious

I’m feeling glorious
The crib looking Victorian (oh yes it is)
You know that we been going in (been going in)
Since we hopped out that Delorean (Delorean, yeah we win)

En garde, things are just things
They don’t make you who you are
Can’t pack up a U-Haul and take it with you when you’re gone
We posted on the porch, my family’s glasses to the stars
My grandma smiling down on me like woo, that boy got bars
Okay, okay, yes I do
I said amen and hallelujah, let me testify too
Another morning, a morning, don’t let self get in my way
I got my breath, I got my faith and I remember why I came

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious

We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
The world is up for grabs (Hey, hey, hey)
We gon’ be alright, put that on my life
When I open my eyes, hope I see you shine
We’re planting a flag they don’t understand
The world is up for grabs

I feel glorious, glorious
Got a chance to start again
I was born for this, born for this
It’s who I am, how could I forget?
I made it through the darkest part of the night
And now I see the sunrise
Now I feel glorious, glorious
I feel glorious, glorious
