Comments17/11/2017 #8 Jerry FletcherGraham, The fact that experience can make a difference as you and @Phil Friedman point out is never more prevalent than when the new organization begins to seek funding. The order in which folks I know in the investing arena read a business plan is 1. Title page (your positioning statement should be there) 2. CVs of the company's officers, 3. Overview and then the rest. In my experience 80% of the decisions to fund are made on those few pages. Experience, market knowledge and proven capabilities count more than just about anything else.17/11/2017 #7 Mohammed A. JawadIt's nasty when egoistic entrepreneurs who by their infant ideas coupled with measurable monies think that they can march forth, capture markets and pocket profits. But, without censure and counsel, they decide and demand campaigns from consultants and simply ignore their wise strategies.17/11/2017 #5 Phil FriedmanI am sympathetic, @Graham🐝 Edwardss, to what you're saying here. My trademark tagline for two decades has been, "... because experience always matters."
I strongly believe in the truth of that because I've found that half the battle is knowing what NOT to do. Only experience can train you to recognize potential paths of action that will ultimately lead nowhere or to a dead end -- thereby enabling you to avoid wasting valuable and limited resources pursuing those paths.
Another verity which I cite often -- for example, in my book "Ten Golden Rules for Successful New Build Projects" is that much of the time solid experience trumps "creative brilliance" when the goal is to produce a product or run a profitable business.

Those are the very thoughts that ran through my mind. We often suppress our fears and feelings as a way to keep at bay what the expression of the same might bring upon us. But this only pushes us farther from who we really are. And that is a rather painful feeling.
Thank you for your comment and share!09/11/2017 #5 Harvey LloydGreat thoughts as always. The mirror is a place of horror to be avoided or a place that reveals wisdom. The soul is a something we can only see our own, we can guess at others with their signals they send, but we can't know.
If we never look upon the mirror to see who we are and grow that wisdom of self awareness we can never know another. If we do not appear before the mirror then those on the outside will reflect what they want us to reflect.
Thanks for the words, they inspire.

His patrons were so moved by the shop owner’s generosity and the gratitude displayed by these very hungry people, that they began donating money to the cause. Now, the shop owner can afford to offer more meals to more people several days a week. That is what I call,” awesomeness in action!” People helping people, one slice at a time.
When we share our good fortune in service to humankind, we help ourselves evolve personally and professionally as the self-less act never goes unrewarded...The trick is not to have expectations of a certain outcome, or you will find yourself disappointed every time...Be of good nature and always be willing to lend a hand to someone less fortunate...Now this pizza shop owner has a booming business and can afford himself some time off for a little pleasure once in a while;-)05/11/2017 #18 Savvy RajA very relevant post with some great takebacks.

They have no need to manipulate others because they are connected to their own energy.
They have learned how not to give their energy to those around them.
This multiplies their effectiveness and results.
Authentic, emotionally intelligent leaders would never sacrifice your safety for their own personal benefit.
Authentic acts of emotional generosity build trust. "

Comments28/10/2017 #14 Mohammed A. Jawad@David Navarro López Thanks so much for your compliments and comments. Perhaps, when we realize our little lapses or disgusting deeds and become repentant and dutiful towards our parents then that's the time they feel happy, and at this we should feel ourselves fortunate. I am glad to know that at one time you realized and turned as an obedient son.28/10/2017 #13 AnonymousThank you for your post, dear Mohammed. You are a man of great insights. I have witnessed many times children who, when grown up, treated unrespectfully to their parents. In my childhood and youth, I was many times in disagreement with my parents, but I learned to obey respectfully, even if in disagreement.
With the time, many decisions they took, which back on time seemed to me wrong, appeared to be the right thing to do when I got the maturity.
Then, I learned that in order to become and understand what a good son is, you need to become first a father. Only then one can fully understand how parents should be dealt with.27/10/2017 #12 Lisa 🐝 Gallagher#10 Hi Mohammed, feel free to use anything I said and I'm happy my words were inspirational. I think we can all agree that mothers give so much though out their lives to their children and the least a child (grown) can do is give back in any way they are able. Love is the most precious gift we are all given :))27/10/2017 #11 🐝 Fatima G. WilliamsSometimes a daughter or son is pushed to such extent. But then I ask the question how long can they remain ungrateful or forced to be so. There is a saying that respecting parents comes before respecting God. One should never forget that no matter what. I chose my mother over marriage simply because the guy couldn't see her living with us and I was baffled by such a behaviour considering he lost his mom while he was quite young. When you love a woman or a man you must love their parents as well otherwise that becomes an unblessed relationship.27/10/2017 #9 Lisa 🐝 GallagherI think the same could be said of some sons too. I'm lucky, my son respects me and shows compassion. I also have a daughter who is married, a great mom and her love/ respect has only grown for me too. Now, I want to address possible cultural differences... many moms in the US understand and pray when their daughters are married with children they put their new family first. That does not mean they ignore or disrespect their moms, it just means they have made a promise of love when they married and both, husband and wife should put each other first, while still having enough love for their parents. If a mother has been a good role model, then daughters stay close to their moms. I have seen spoiled grown children who always put their needs above the parents and they tend to treat others with similar disrespect. I've seen males do the same. In our society, unless a grown child has been spoiled in a way that teaches them that their needs should always be met and come first or the grown child was not respected and/or abused by their mother or father and they will distance themselves in many cases. So, I think it should never be expected that every daughter or son will respect if they were not given respect and were treated harshly. Love and respect are earned and should never be taken for granted. Last: If the mother gave her daughter love, she sure does deserve respect and a deeper relationship as her daughter continues to mature.26/10/2017 #8 Mohammed A. Jawad#7 Verily, i agree to what you have said that 'sons as well as daughters owe their parents some respect if it is warranted.' When sons become hen-pecked husbands, then there's a different shift in story, but, in rarity, when dear daughters turn harsh then that's very hurting.
Indeed, even if we go grey, with wrinkles and weakness, we remain still kids in front of our old parents. At this age, if undisciplined children turn repentant, then parents should forgive them to make them feel more fortunate. @Jerry Fletcher Thanks for your great insights.26/10/2017 #7 Jerry FletcherMohammed, The view you espouse is, to me sexist. Sons as well s daughters owe their parents some respect if it is warranted. Many times the respect declines in the teen age years and then in their twenties the children see the parents as wise and wonderful. At that time you must accept your progeny as a full functioning adult and treat them as such. Failure to do so will earn you behavior that is at most uncomfortable.
I understand that in some cultures what I've said is not acceptable. That does not mean that the culture has it right for today's world or for any part of it.26/10/2017 #4 Mohammed A. Jawad#3 So swift is the world moving on that precepts are heard, but makes no deep penetration. Perhaps, it matters the right mentorship of elders that chisel children to grow up into wise, mannerly adults, and they in their own liberties will never falter in any way. @Harvey Lloyd Thanks for your comments and appreciative note.26/10/2017 #3 Harvey LloydIn prophecy your thoughts are truer than the world cares to admit. I fear for our daughters today. They are not only under the loving guidance of parents but the world is at their feet at such a young age. An age where they are unable to sort out the virtues of peace and joy.
As parents we do not wish to lock our children in a closet yet we can't control what they experience within the world. Quite the conundrum.
A serving heart is built. The corruption to the structure of what is built is the difficult to piece to defend. Great thoughts.26/10/2017 #1 Ali 🐝 Anani, Brand Ambassador @beBee@Mohammed A.
