We get exposed to some many different elements each day. These elements can affect us in multiple ways as well. You have to protect your energy at all cost. Today is exactly that day for me, I value my moments and my energy and can’t let someone interfere with that.
It’s like invasion and disruption when someone tries to melt your day with heat and hot energy of corrupting matter.
Just protect yourself my friends. You are in full control of your own outcome or destiny. Go for it, and be safe and safe guard your energy.
So yea, that happened today. It finally came down to this, I got pulled over by the police. I can’t even be mad about it, I know it was going to one day get to this point. As many of my friends know, I am mister super safe driver. I am certified in training others to drive safe and in many super defensive moments. It’s good to have this knowledge and be able to use this daily.
So why oh why, did you get pulled over by the police. Well let me first say, I am happy to say it was a good experience and it could have went super left. Oh so many things could have gone wrong, I could have been shot, I could have got handcuffed, I could have got assaulted, and other’s as you hear in the news, but that didn’t happen. *Side note: As you are reading this, I have used the word super, quite often in this post and even threw the word in again to add to the tally, for I had a super lucky day today and I am happy to report on it.
Back to the story, it’s not epic as you could have imagine. But there are a lot of learning that can be done, when you run into conflicts on the road or in person that try so hard to avoid or have negative results. The police officer that pulled me over was pretty direct, firm, and respectful in the sense of listening and hearing my side before he set the law down. He also was a bit patient, for it was only one officer than two, in which in my mind living in New York City, it can get really bad really quick as you may know or have heard on many news stations and years of abuse and etc.
All in all, the police officer set me straight, gave me a summons, on a matter which was not on my causing. But of course you have to assume the responsibility as you are the driver of the vehicle and you must follow the law and be a safe driver to others as well as set an example.
So for me, I give that police officer kudos, for doing his job right and efficient, and we both left the situation in a formal manner. I definitely know officers are put in crazy situation at any given time, and it’s a case by case situation in which can mean a very bad day or life or death and anything in-between.
So today I took the high road, and was fortunate to be alive and well, and have quite a few paperworks to handle and be aware off, unless, oh yes, unless, I want to be in court and have to see this police officer or more or a judge, in this super rare occurrence. (And yes, that was a super run-on sentence) lol
I am a very proud man when it comes to my work. I try to innovate, I try to disrupt, I try to humble myself. I am very competitive inside and out. I just don’t show my true face outside. You can read my ambitions at face value, but you will never see the depth I think things through.
So I felt it was going to be a important year or half of year for the last remaining months of 2019. I forecasted change, I ramble a few trees and leaves, and the same things I wrote, I spoke, they came to be.
The theme for today, was I walked into a tree and the leaves fell. I got a promotion at work this year, and it was told to me, I wasn’t going to get another increase in pay. I was not fine with that. I accepted the fact that they said it, but as I go to work I can’t help just excitedly limits and bounds, and was going to figure out a way to be recognized. If the most talented person in the room and person who bought back the best results was winning for you, would you deny their worth? I felt it was a no. I remember 2016 when my general manager for a store I worked at, said to me, I was capped from a raise, or my pay would not change, and I told him at that point, what’s the point in staying.
I told him give my worse position in the store no one wants to do and I will change it around. He didn’t believe I was serious, and gave me the chance to fail. I thanked him. I went on to break records and succeeded at that role and 3 other roles in the organization and received 3 raises in that one year. We were the best store in the region and highly competitive. The difference makers was me.
I love to win, I fight to win, I fight for my team to win, I don’t stop until I win, I enjoy the struggle, I pop bubbles, Even when I stumble, I still go hard.
I wrote this to say, never give up on yourself. Trust the process, take risks, always count on yourself. I shake trees for money and growth in every single thing I do. You can too. So when they say it’s impossible, show them that it’s not.
So today, I walked into work and was welcome with a letter for a raise. My manager fought for my increase as I told him from when I got the promotion I am here to delivery a team culture and success. I will create a vision and watch his back and put him higher in other’s eyes knowing that, if he just steps aside, I will help us climb far ahead.
I got my promotion in March, and 6 months later, I turned our team’s culture as the best team in the company. Everyone wondered what was this magic sauce that was happening at the worse team in the company in those times. I help create a champion team, even with our flaws and deficiencies, I knew that with transparency, empowerment, wisdom, drive and confidence, we would overcome.
I talked it into existence as my post yesterday spoke about, but I also put in the work. #action
