Black History Month – Langston Hughes – Vagabonds

You may ask what place does poetry or celebrations of Black History month have in this blog that was created to encourage, inspire and motivate women to be their best at work and home. I would answer that I am an African-American woman so black history is my history and when you understand and appreciate it, you come closer to understanding and appreciating me. I would also answer that poetry, like all forms of artistic expression fuels our passions, gives us hope makes us think and makes our lives richer and better.

Vagabonds

We are the desperate
Who do not care,
The hungry
Who have nowhere
To eat
No place to sleep,
The tearless
Who cannot
Weep.

There is so much emotion in this poem. When I read the words, I see have a vision of poor desperate and hungry people looking for food and shelter. In my vision, I do not see them as not caring about their predicament. I have been rich and I have been poor. I know people who have been homeless and not known where they would sleep or what they would eat. Those people were never uncaring. They cared about their situations and wanted to do better.

I have been sad many times in my life. I have never been too tearless to weep. My business has found itself in desperate straights at one time or another, but things have never been hopeless. It does something to the heart and to the head to read about a person who is so desperate, hungry, and hopeless. Yet, these people are all around us. It seems that we have an obligation as entrepreneurs, as human beings to make the world better than we found it. Entrepreneurs with employees have an obligation to be fair to their employees and not to leave employees worse than they found them.

As an entrepreneur, think about what you do to make the world a better place. If it takes you more than two minutes to come up with an answer, perhaps there are some changes that you should be making at your organization.

Take Action Now – It’s Your Dream – Make It Happen

It is magnificent to take action now and realize it is your dream and you can make it happen. One of my favorite and best things to do is TAN. What is TAN? TAN means to Take Action Now, to start doing what needs to be done. When you take action now you leave the world of “what if” and enter the world of “yes, I am doing this.” The world is full of reasons to sit back and wait, to put off until tomorrow. That is a fact everyone seems to know very well. The world is full of excuses. You know, the excuses that keep you from accomplishing your dreams. [Read More . . . ]

 

Take Action Now and Live The Dream

When you have a dream it is important to work, to do something to make the dream come true. Faith without work is dead and no one wants to be the owner of a dead dream. At the same time, when you take action on your dream, make sure the action is real and that you are not sabotaging your dream without realizing it. For example, recently I was speaking with a group of entrepreneurs about going from dreams to reality. The discussion revolved around the idea of writing checks for some dream amount the entrepreneur would earn in the future. The filled in checks were to be placed where the could be seen each day. This visual cue was thought to be a source of motivation. [Read More . . . ]

 

Take Action Now to Follow A Dream

Take a moment now to look at your life, think about your dreams. How are you treating your dream, what are you doing with them? What has been your history when dealing with your dreams. Has your habit been to sit back and treat your dreams as precious untouchable things that sit in the china closet of your mind? Or, are you a person who tends to take action now and to treats your dreams as things that must be used, worked and acted upon? There are no right or wrong answers to these questions. No matter what your answer is, answer honestly. Once you have asked the question and answered honestly, you will know your place in the universe.
