Someone paid a price to make this sweet video. Somebody stayed up late, shot and re-shot the clip, cut, taped, posted, thought, and kept pushing. We all admire it. It elicits immediate appreciation and reinforces a widely understood truth. Vince Lombardi put it this way…
“The Dictionary is the only place that success comes before work. Hard work is the price we must pay for success. I think you can accomplish anything if you’re willing to pay the price.”
Does this remind you of leading youth?
Have you found that the things of highest value to you came from great sacrifice?
Leading youth is very hard. But you are making a difference. You are building into the life of someone and in some way participating with the creator in his masterpiece. Someone someday will see all of the time and effort it took and even if you get nothing in return for it you get the satisfaction of knowing it’s what you were created to do. Let this elicit an immediate response in you. You are appreciated and your job matters.
