    Are you a torch... Or a "selfish little clod of ailments"...

    "This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no "brief candle" for me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations." -George Bernard Shaw https://lnkd.in/f9dh6UY

    Yes frameworks do limit, but they are temporary constructs for direction.

    We conveniently convert our points of reference to limiting borders of relevance.

    We convert our refuge as the well to dwell, presuming we are immune in here. This also includes the well of success.

    But the refuge is a launchpad.. writing is a refuge and a launchpad. Its so refreshig to read you after so long. Still tied up for another 10 days but this made my day.

    #18 Maybe. I doubt any of the particular words really needed to be held onto. But it is evident that you absorbed what I was trying to convey. I see you employing your own mental flexibility to your own best outcomes.

    The blasted MS is a horrible overhead to your life, but the moments you can proceed without it having a direct effect on what you can think about - whether or not it is having physical effects - are the moments when you are actually being your own best ally.

    Because fruitful work, thoughts that capture all your attention, FLOW, is the antidote to the dreaded hypervigilance.

    #8 Success can be an outcome of interdependence, courage and discipline or a tormentor, even when we have arrived.

    Your comment was well stated and i enjoyed the view.

    I went through a period of understanding the word "enough". Without a personal understanding of "enough". Then success will always be elusive. This personal theory afforded me the brain space to achieve greater things outside of "success" as measured by society.

    In reading some of your thoughts i believe we each have come to the place that success is within humanity and not ourselves. My thoughts of "enough" enabled me to see the synergy within humanity and its ability to provide for my family.

    The sadness i see within many who search for success is the inability to describe what their arrival would look like. The constant view from inside out is changing and the definition of personal success changes with it.

    I loved your view where success is a blessing. From this view we can eliminate our judgement of success within others and focus on our own.

    Great thoughts here and thank you for taking the time to share such insight.

    Dear @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee- I am reading your buzz again and the contributed comment that are of high value-added. I pondered on this extract from your buzz at length "Success is a careful dance of listening and taking the bull by the horns and acting. There is a constant need to be willing to learn and supplant personal perspectives with new ideas. It requires flexibility in thinking".
    It is not a secret that I am writing a buzz to offer new perspectives on waggling dance, dancing molecules, dancing molds and other examples. Now, I have a new dance- dancing for success. You remind me of the great movie Zorba the Greek, in which Anthony Quinn danced for his failure. For great people failure is a learning opportunity and a step to do better till success arrives. I am dancing for you to have written this lovely buzz.

    #5 Harvey it is true as you say "No one can be successful like you can." The irony of defining success is sometimes we actual erase success. There is very clear definitions of success, such as a desire to emigrate to a particular country, fulfilling that desire is success. Then there is moving goal posts.

    A definition of success that is based on earning $2 milliion dollars so that one is on par with a neighbour who also earns the same, actually means we erase our success when we have only earned $1 million. In this case we have created a judgement about success, whereas counting a blessing is an appreciation of success.

    Thus what you say "no one can be successful like you can" really does begin with us. Once we cross the line into the world of judgements we begin to look down on the poor that are successful (living a meaningful life) and look up to the rich that are "unsuccessful" (living an anxious life trying to keep up appearances) much like a man who earned $1 million and feels that way. I am wary of success as a judgement but I am very welcoming of success as a blessing.

    Our world is built of the successful efforts of others and a well ordered and freedom cherishing society represents that.

Difficulties are only lessons of life, which make us overcome the complicated moments where we are deprived of almost everything. Never give up on your dreams, even though it seems impossible to realize them, for who moves us is the faith in knowing that we can overcome everything that makes us peace. Focus, faith and strength!

    Great Buzz. I agree with you. Everything still takes action. This reminds me of a quote I saw earlier today. "Even if I am on the right track, I will still get run over if I sit down."
    I love the part where you talk about hearing the word "NO". With my job, I market home improvement such at Sunrooms. This is a product that someone with probably only get once, or just need repaired. So if I am marketing it, I hear that word a lot. Yet, each time I hear "NO", I am that much closer to that "Yes". I don't even remember the faces of anyone who say no, because of how fast I go through the numbers. Yet, I remember a lot of the clients who said "Yes"

    #9 It's through these conversations that we get to explore the dynamic, so good for you for starting it here. There has been a lot of research on trust lately and until very recently there was no broad consensus on what it actually is. We are beginning to quantify it through its effects so, good news all round :) The moment we can measure something we can begin to understand it and, maybe, improve it.

    #8 Thank you very much for the insight David! I appreciate it. I agree there is a lot more to trust than what I've written above. How we engage and interact with people is very different compared to how we talked in the past. Like you said, wealth, power, and status aren't the strongest determining factors of trusting someone these days. I believe they still play some role but not a major one in today's society. There's other things that we must continue to explore. Certainly the different kinds of trust would be a good start. I never heard of that until just now so thank you for sharing!

    #1 Louise, thank you for bringing this quote in the discussion and Eric, trust is a complex concept that we are only now grappling with in the digital domain. In the offline world it used to be determined by visually affirmative characteristics (wealth, power, status, etc) - it has changed significantly over the last few years. Key, here, is that the four-step process that determines it: Contact>Connection>Assessment>Connection is the same throughout. It also helps to remember that there are different types of trust: https://goo.gl/htaj9s which reflect the complex boundaries of our interactions. Transparency and consistency (for individuals as well as brands) is a good way to establish trust and maintain it.

    I agree with you that being honest puts us at a certain vulnerability but it is that honesty and transparency that earns us trust. I truly believe in the old saying that trust does not just happen; it is earned. I believe it goes hand and hand with respect. As those around us watch our lives and the reactions we have in business or in our personal life, it will tell them who we truly are. Thank you for your insights.

    "I’ve been working very hard on getting people to care about me as opposed to getting people to trust in me."
    I've never thought about that before but I think you're right.
    I worked as a High School teacher for decades. I think sometimes my students didn't like me but as the year went on they would trust me.
    Very few students would care about me. Same for colleagues !
    And I would with trust or healthily mistrust them on an individual basis.

    Hi Gert, very nice praise of Javier. There are two ways in which a leader has impact. The first is the Google Way and the second is the Fearless Leader Way.

    In the Google Way, the culture the leader creates turns the name of his organization into an adjective, so today while Google is actually Alphabet as a company, the word Google has become a mainstay adjective - Google wanted to be known as organizing the world's information and when we individually search for information we say "Oh, just Google that". That is the highest praise a leader can have.

    In the Fearless Leader Way the culture becomes more like a Banana Republic or something that Kim Jong Il would expect, and with Donald Trump he is the classic example of a personal brand that wants to engage his work in a branded way - hence Seth Meyers takes a look at this branded way of doing things as Trump recently went to the ultimate level of actually seeking praise from his cabinet https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jlCFLG6rKKY - so it is that the word "personal brand" will continue to pick up more negative baggage and eventually it is not a cool word to associate with, so at least think Kim Jong or Donald Trump !!!

    So we need a BeBee Way and that way should culminate in beBee becoming an adjective. So one day saying "Develop your beBee" will mean that you have a strong personal and professional reputation or profile online . I can work more on my beBee and because I know what my beBee means I don't have to use extra words like personal or professional to describe it, for my beBee here already contains that ! So the ultimate praise for any leader is when their company becomes an adjective.

    Here are two that I find absolutely spot on.

    "Whatever circumstances we have in life, we are still the one controlling its outcome. It is still up to us to lead our life to where we want us to be. Blaming the circumstances and use it to justify our present condition will not help. It will only hinder us to move forward and continue to live our life. Trials and difficulties will always be there to set us off course, but we can handle it if we really have the right attitude in life. So instead of complaining about life being unfair, move on and make the use out of it."

    "Move on instead of complaining."

    Absolutely well said and underscores the essence of a great mind, great leader and great team at beBee with the vision and goals to make a difference one positive step at a time.

    When I tell people about beBee and the fact that you both reply and comment on my buzzes and everyone else's - they don't believe me !
    (And I'm known to be an HONEST person)
    BUT that's what makes beBee such a warm place to bee.
    You deserve every success !

    #54 I agree @Gert Scholtz, that's not just a great quote but true. I have been working on positive thinking. When a person has Anxiety disorder their mind tends to go right to all the 'what if's, or worst case scenarios. It takes a lot of practice and staying vigilant of these thoughts that seemed to come naturally over many years (even though they aren't natural) to replace with positive but it's possible and the more one practices it becomes easier. Rome wasn't built over night as my therapist reminded me and the our thought processes that we may have just accepted as 'who we are,' were also years in the making so it takes time to reprogram the brain. This why I love reading all the positivity, it's a great reinforcement for me, so Thank YOU and thanks to others like Javier who keep it real!!

    I was postponing reading this wonderful post for so many reasons. Today I made it a point to read it somehow and am glad that I did. Gert, my friend who study each one of us to the core where somewhere we are unaware of ourselves as a person. Javier is our king bee and an interactive and approachable one who had never let any one of us down. One needs to pick bits of information in order to create a post on an individual and am sure you might have spent hours doing it. Each bee is unique here and no one can replace them as beBee has placed everyone at their correct places.

    I was truly blessed the day when I joined beBee and would again like to offer my profound gratitude to our very own, @Javier 🐝 beBee. And you are absolutely indispensable my friend, @Gert Scholtz

    #1 On the subject of moving on. The article and specific context of the issue is not the important thing, but I found the two quotes in an interview between Arianna Huffington and Katy Perry: (AH)β€œAre you ready to let it go?” (KP)β€œI am ready to let it go…” Now there is a great question and answer. To all: keep making a difference.

    #3 It all starts with "one" deciding to do something different, regardless of what the crowd is doing. Stay in the dark, stay in the past or move on and change to be different, change to be positive, and change to make a difference. Then it just becomes a process of 1 x 1 steps and interactions and although not infinite, it can be positively exponential. 1 interacts with another. Then those two with two others, and on and on until theoretically, that 1 has become 7/5 Billion+.

    I have not completed the journey. I am not there yet, but I am trying.

    Your responses to so many posts have convinced me that despite the difficult nature of the trip you have already stimulated your mind to to take that one step, and to continue taking the others on "the journey of a thousand miles" that facilitate moving on and making a difference. Keep plugging, keep changing, and keep interacting One person, one step, one positivity at a time.

    #3 @Harvey Lloyd thank you for the thoughtful response. I think in one sense beBee provides that stimulus and as Javier said, helps us stop complaining and begin or continue the process of moving on. It serves as a catalysts for one person to express themselves, and for one other (or many others) to then interact and engage in a positive environment and "spontaneous natural liking's" and sometimes disagreement but all in a positive forward moving approach.

    On the "vs" issue, we have a choice. We can either sit back and passively just let those who use what ever venue to impart, exchange and/or control information yank us in one direction or another, or we can choose not to. It is a conscious choice. Remain or become part of the apparatus, or choose a path less traveled by, and build the combine of change, difference an positivism. In essence it is a decision point on a three way intersection on the streets of life: 1) continue 2) stop. or 3) change and move on. You either recklessly blast through the intersection, and continue on regardless of the consequences and how your actions may impact others. Or, you stop and just stay in one place, accept this as your status quo, and consciously decide to stay put and not move on. Or, you observe the environment around and before you, look to "see" what is going on, make a decision, change and then move on. Simple as that.

    #1 #2 @Javier 🐝 beBee First of all thank you for two great comments. They underscore the beauty of this site. What other social media site would you have that would have some obscure entity make a statement and have the El Jefe of its bees weigh in so quickly. Absolutely agree and am grateful both for your comments, insights and wisdom and for a site like beBee that consistently shares the same in so many positive and beneficial ways. You absolutely reflect the very nature of an entity that exudes the essence of an affinity of affinities. You are one that makes a difference indeed. Have a great weekend. Me, I am going fishing and moving on. :)

    "Our future will not succumb to the individual or collective approaches of delusional self-serving grandeur and disingenuous quests for power, fame and notoriety." This is the embodiment of our issues today. Your "vs" are appropriate.

    The larger looming question is always going to be putting the cat back in the bag. Clearly the era of self is upon us/we. Converting self back into we will require not only a standard of absolute truths but also an enforcement mechanism that secures efficacy within the effort.

    Each self is aligned with varying absolute truths of the "we" that is needed in order to move forward as a society. Current methodologies of change management at the regulatory and legal levels would call for some major changes in the constitution to get this cat back in the bag. Let alone the enforcement of the changes. The word chaos comes to mind. Constitutional documents relied on society being of a similar core value system. This core value system is no longer shared across a large section of our population and transportation has removed water barriers to dissimilar values.

    I enjoy your thoughts in this area and also share the need for us to grow in this dialogue. I am just struggling with the stimulus that will be required to enable us to proceed under a "we" doctrine. I sense a standoff with people facing each other, guns locked and loaded, each stating they will put theirs down when the others do. Time will answer the question or we will.

    Whatever circumstances we have in life, we are still the one controlling its outcome. It is still up to us to lead our life to where we want us to be. Blaming the circumstances and use it to justify our present condition will not help. It will only hinder us to move forward and continue to live our life. Trials and difficulties will always be there to set us off course, but we can handle it if we really have the right attitude in life.

    So instead of complaining about life being unfair, move on and make the use out of it.

    sales is great, as long as your prospect has the cash, collateral or credit to buy. I have no control over that - doubly so over the 2008-9 recession and how the industry STILL has not recovered to pre-crash days.

    πŸ” Mt Everest has an elevation of 29,029. To get to the summit you must climb through some of the most treacherous conditions. Freezing cold weather, ice, snow, lack of oxygen, mental and physical fatigue. The trip up the skype of the mountain takes several days, this is not an overnight venture. The same holds true in life. As we are Pershing the success we want, we will have to go through treacherous conditions. Finances, good/bad debt, mental and physical fatigue, losses. The success we want takes time, so we must be patient and ready to #work. To put in the hours, the time, the energy, the #hustle. If not, you'll never reach the summit of your success.

    ➑️ Book cover concept. Doing a collaborative book with @jasonhowland9022 (on Instagram), on the importance of giving value to people. Giving more value than what you're asking for in return is vital. I'm learning this subject more and more every day. This should be a great experience writing a book with someone. It was one of the things I wanted to accomplish this year! .
