A Soggy Memory: The Power of Determination


What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is determination. Right now, I am standing in the rain, and that’s why I look like a wet dog. People are driving by and walking by, wondering why I’m recording a video in the rain, but it’s okay; I don’t care. 


Rainy Reflections


The reason I’m recording this video today is because of one of my most important memories, which happened in the rain. 

About 28 years ago, my sister and my girlfriend convinced me to attend this conference in Atlanta. I didn’t want to, but I agreed to do it for her. Deep down, I didn’t want to be there, and my attitude was apparent. 

The first night I was there, we had to walk through a rainstorm to get to our destination. I will never forget walking behind her. She had her umbrella but was just trouncing through the puddles, letting nothing stop her. 

That memory of determination has been ingrained in my brain. Nobody wants to be walking in the rain! 

In fact, I’m getting kind of wet right now, but that’s okay because it’s just water. Watching my sister be so determined that nothing was going to stop her set a great example for me. 

I have used that example in my own mind, both consciously and subconsciously, along with channeling positive emotions. Those two things together— that important memory, plus channeling positive emotions—have helped me get through really hard times. 

When you are going through some really hard times, and I hope you’re not, but if you ever come across really hard times, try to remember those moments, those people in your life who set a great example. Try to channel the positive energy that you can pull from yourself and your experiences and find ways to break through those challenges. 

It’s all about determination, you guys. 

That’s this week’s very, very soggy Two Minute Drill. 

You guys have a great week. Talk to y’all soon.

Two Minute Drill: Painful Determination

What’s up Kaizenovators, Happy Tuesday Two Minute Drill. Today’s topic of conversation is painful determination. I’m here in South Florida, we moved my parents from California back to Aventura. It was also my mom’s birthday this weekend, so we celebrated her 85th birthday, and everything went really well. They’re all settled in, thanks mainly to my sister who does so much for my parents.

Malka’s Determination

We had a birthday dinner with my parents, my sister, my brother-in-law, and my baby niece Malka. During the dinner, Malka was sitting next to me and we were talking about who was more competitive, me or her, and she challenged me that she was more determined, she was more competitive.

She’s seven years old, and so I said, okay! She’s like, “I’m going to hold up your leg.” So, she extended her two little seven-year-old legs, and I put my right leg on top of her ankles, she worked and she worked through a lot of pain. You’re going to see that video at the end.

What’s really cool is that even though she was experiencing pain, she was determined to win. That inspired me. I was inspired to see how hard she was working and how much pain she endured to achieve her goal.

When it comes to our goals, our personal goals, our fitness goals, our life goals, our professional goals, how much pain are we willing to endure in order to achieve the goal?

Next time I’m in the gym and I did this, this weekend and I’m kind of struggling through that last couple of reps, I’m going to do a couple more. I did a couple more and I’m going to continue to do that.

The Power of One More, as Ed Mylett might say when it comes to doing things related to work or achieving personal financial goals, putting in the effort, and going through some pain in order to achieve the goal.

So, how much pain are you willing to endure? If you can have painful determination, you can win. Just like my seven-year-old baby niece Malka.

That’s this week’s Two Minute Drill. Y’all have a great week and I’ll talk to y’all next week.
