Were You Born With A Silver Spoon?

No one ever wants to see the road you’ve taken or the work you’ve put in.

Published

Life was not handed to me on a silver platter, although many would prefer to believe that. No one ever wants to see the road you’ve taken or the work you’ve put in. It’s easier to cover their own failures or lazy behavior by making your successes look like luck. Politicians love to use this as a weapon to demonize success. They dress it up as “unfair” or “pay your fair share” to change perception into a vote recruiting mechanism. It’s a lie. I share a bit of a story while doing some hunting below…

ABout Cory:

From NFL Offensive Lineman to husband and father, professional speaker, and financial investment advisor, Cory has held many titles and roles — but what separates him from the pack is his drive to help others win. Above everything, Cory is a warrior: for his team, his family, his clients, and his faith.

In 2005, he was picked up by the Detroit Lions practice squad. Seizing yet another opportunity he wasn’t expecting, he made the most of it. Procter worked hard, focused, and pushed himself forward. One yard at a time. Literally overnight, Cory ended up in Texas playing for the Dallas Cowboys. His tenure with the Cowboys would last 5 seasons and span two monumental stadiums. In 2007, Cory was introduced to his wife through mutual friends, and Megan has been by his side ever since. Together, both Texas transplants, they made the Lone Star State their home, growing their football family.

Cory continued to soar, until 2010, after moving to Miami. During game play in Miami, he had a massive and career ending injury. Procter did not know that was his new reality, that his time in the sun had come to an end. As he stumbled through the next few years, seven surgeries, tons of rehab, moving back and forth across the US to continue his football dream, he emerged a broken man, struggling to redefine himself. He and Megan began a family in 2011, with Cory literally limping down the aisle.

Cory and Megan now live in the DFW metroplex with their daughter, Grace, and their son, Hank. Cory runs his financial services company, Pro Capital Wealth Management, and shares his story of faith, football, and perseverance to impact his community. His goal is to build stronger people and bring them closer to purpose.

The Post That Made Facebook Threaten One of America’s Top Motivational Speakers

Apparently you aren’t allowed to ask pointed questions that make the leftist overlords look bad.

Apparently you aren’t allowed to ask pointed questions that make the leftist overlords look bad. Check out PolitiCrossing Founder and motivational speaker Chris Widener’s post that earned him the threat:

If Covid was so deadly, would Democrat politicians get caught without their masks dining at French Laundry? Or going maskless in their private jet terminals? Or at the ball games they attend? Would they really risk their very lives?

If the seas were really going to rise from global warming would Obama really own thirty million dollars of beach front properties?

If this is so deadly, would they allow us to pack hundreds of people into an airplane eighteen inches from each other (yet require you to “social distance” while you get off the plane)? Would they allow thousands of people to use the same touch screen to check in in airports like I just did ten minutes ago?

You have been fooled my friends. Look at what they do, not at what they say. The biggest scams in human history are being pulled on us and half our country goes along with it because they have no discernment of right and wrong or truth and error. And worse, when you call them on their BS, they act indignant and curse and belittle you.

Why would they keep virologists from the best schools in America from getting their message out that this is a scam? Why would they keep you from using medications that have been around and safely used for decades?

We simply cannot continue to allow these shysters to harangue us into complicity. I for one will continue to fight until my dying day for truth against duplicitous manipulation.

If someone told a crowd of 1000 people that they have to shut down their businesses and stay home from school and wear masks or else ONE of those 1000 people would die in the next year, would you do it? Of course not. That’s the math, and only if you believe all the reported cases of death by Covid were actually true but of course we know that many deaths were categorized as Covid deaths but weren’t.

And yet that is exactly what we have done.

Why would they roll out a vaccine that doesn’t even keep you from getting Covid and has tons of side effects and roll out national marketing campaigns to pressure everyone to get it?

What’s really going on here?

It is time to put on your thinking caps, my friends. Just because someone in authority says something is true doesn’t make it so.

Pay as You Go

We each benefit by pacing ourselves for the long haul.

Published

on

In 1900, the median age of Americans at the age of death was 49 years old. By 2018, life expectancy of Americans had jumped to above age 80. Career professionals, like nearly everyone else, are living to ripe old ages. As such, they need to pace themselves for the long haul. A personal story helps illustrate the point.

Machinists Know Best

I worked with my friend Peter, for Smyth Manufacturing Company, the book binding equipment manufacturer, the summer before we entered college. It was my only time in a job shop, and I learned many lasting lessons such as the importance of cleanliness in an industrial setting.

Before you left for the evening, you oiled your machine, wiped the floor and counters, and cleared away scraps and extraneous items so you could begin the next day without impediments. The craftsmen sometimes elaborately cleaned and reorganized items in the middle of the day as well, as they switched from one job to another.

When you’re working with potentially dangerous industrial equipment, you can’t afford to have a stray bolt or paper clip lying around that could catch in a gear and fly across the factory floor into someone’s face.

Control the Immediate Environment

As deftly as these job shop professionals worked, they continually maintained control of their immediate environment because they understood its importance on many levels. In case you think they were being overly cautious or were paid some admirable hourly wage, guess again. These workers were paid by the piece, and they were known as “piece workers.”

Any one of them could have easily increased their output on a given day by slacking off on cleaning and maintenance procedures. After all, if you can turn out seven pieces in a day spending 30 percent of your time cleaning and maintaining, you might be able to produce more than 10 pieces if you completely concentrate on your output.

In the short-term, you could make more money. Longer term, you could injure yourself or others, create more waste, shorten the equipment’s life, or get fired.

A Primary Lesson

The lesson for us all is to “Pay as you go.” Clear the decks each night, arrive ready for the next day, and pace yourself for the long haul.
