A Word – Greatness

I just want to be great. Recognized for my simplicity and appreciated for my achievements. I want others to underestimate my ambitions and be dumbfounded by my results; influenced by my charisma and inspired by my story. My greatest achievements won’t be measured monetarily or tangibly. No, I’m reaching higher for satisfaction. I want smiles, laughter, a hug, or even that natural glow of thanks which someone gives when they have truly been acknowledged. To stimulate an inner change and break down walls of faults is my desire. Affecting one is to affect many. I want my greatness to be your biggest day of solace and the beginning to your own success. I want to be great but want YOU to be even greater.

A series called “A Word”:
In the Baptist church when a pastor goes off in ministry, you might hear the congregation say, “He/She preached a Word tuh-day!” Or maybe among deep conversation with your homegirl or boy and they say something thought provoking. That too, was most likely, “a Word”. Well, my Words are actual words, but their meaning dives deeper than the individual letters. Coupled with my photography, Words are powerful, and I want you to be enlightened and inspired by them.

Builder Of The Hill

Fact: Businesses are like ant hills. A Queen owns the hill while the worker ants build the hill. The Queen’s job is to make sure the hill keeps growing and the worker ants keep building. If anything is to happen to that hill, the Queen must answer and make the proper arrangements to fix or correct. Queens do what is in the best interest of the hill. 

Now, a worker ant can build but they do not critique. They follow orders. If what they do is out of line with the best interest of the hill, then proper arrangements will be made. 

The Queen is the word and the hill is the product. Worker ants make sure the product is a success. 

Now what the worker ants fail to realize is that work was not simply learned. It came with vigor, determination, creativity, compassion, resilience, intuitive thinking, teamwork, communication skills, goal orientation and more. The hill was only dirt, mud, and debris until do-able claws became artists, architects, and planners. The worker ant was given the framework from the Queen, but the worker ant must be the scaffold and mold to the hill. Now, if a worker ant was to realize their worth, they would understand they are not a worker ant; they are an ANT THAT WORKS. And once they attain this knowledge, then can they build their own hill.

Most will stop reading, not realizing their worth, but if you are one of those ants that work, build your own hill. Learn to build others so you can build yourself: Self-worth. #RealityCheck
