I just finished writing a e-mail to the folks who make Uncle Ray's Chips...Why? Well I'll tell you why...They are selling some mighty fine chips...and sending out stories about the life of Uncle Ray...My bag had Chapter 24 on it is called "Rip Van Winkle"...Here's a little bit of the story...
Have you ever done something wrong and wish you could do undo that wrong? I attended Boynton School located in Detroit, Michigan. In the seventh grade I had been chosen to play the part of Rip Van Winkle in our school play. After many weeks of rehearsals with my classmates the day had finally come. There was one problem. I was suffering from an acute case of stage fright. The day of the play I never made it to school.
When I returned to school neither my teacher or my classmates ever said a word to me about how I disappointed them. Over the past 48 years I have often wished I could go back in time and have the COURAGE to have shown up at school that day. It would give me a chance to do my best in spite of my fears. Should my teacher or my classmates read this, I would like to tell them how sorry I am for disappointing them. I have learned in business as well as in life, it's not failing that matters, but the fact that you tried and that you care. You see if you lack BOLDNESS to fulfill obligations or dreams you may just miss out on great things in your life.
Remember that winners never quit and quitters never win. If you try your best and continue to fight, you are not quitting. And if you feel what you are doing is right BOLDNESS should come easier. Don't let the lack of courage hurt your work and relationships.
There's more to read on Uncle Ray's bag but I will let you find a bag and read it your self...You can go to his web site here:http://www.unclerays.com/
BOLDNESS- "Confidence that what I have to say or do is TRUE, RIGHT and JUST.
To add BOLDNESS to your life:
Do not be afraid to speak the truth.
Keep a clear conscience.
Support others when they are right.
Be willing to stand alone.
Speak with humility.
