Honing It In!

Today I saw a story on the news about a man that is in the Guinness book of records as the oldest practicing barber. The gentleman is currently 107 years old. He said that he has been cutting hair since he was eleven years old. That is 96 years of cutting hair. This is proof that we can have longevity in this industry if we do things the right way. We must hone our skills. One of the definitions of honing is to make more acute or effective; improve; perfect.

I have often heard the saying that practice makes perfect. I tend to disagree with that statement. I believe that perfect practice makes perfect. We can get very good at doing things wrong. This is where honing comes in. We must become more effective. We must seek to improve on a daily basis. As we improve, then we will want to perfect whatever it is that we do. For a long time, this was my problem. I was looking for what it was that i needed to hone, but I was not sure what it was. I was good at a number of things, but I did not feel as if I was just exemplary in any particular portion of my craft. This is what many have called over the years, “ A Jack of all trades & a master of none. I was good at pretty much all of the components of my trade, and I could easily explain what it was that I had learned to someone else. So, even though others had seen this ability in me long before I did, I was unaware of the area in which it was that I excelled. I need to hone my instructional and facilitation skills. This is where I really stood out, but I went about it all the wrong way.

I spent a good portion of my career enhancing the institutions of others. Some early in my career were very instrumental in my development. I would take what they had to present, and add my flavor to their instructional methods. Then I found myself in the corporate grind that began to deteriorate my drive. It was more about the money than it was about the understanding. There was a lot of internal conflict with following procedure versus really teaching the intricate details of the industry that I love so much. This really caused a strain me. Especially when dealing with supervisors that had no true knowledge of the actual technical and soft skills needed to truly help the masses to excel. Not everyone learns and understands the same, and a production line form of disseminating information is not good for the overall benefit of those involved in implementing their learned skills into action. Then I realized that these facilitation skills can be used in a myriad of arenas. I had to get away from those other entities to get back to my real appreciation of the need for detailed instruction. Now I no longer have to compromise the real mission and values to achieve the desired results. This is where each of us need to find ourselves. We must define ourselves for ourself. If we do not, then we will find ourselves consumed with the expectations of others for us.

Never Ending Story

The more things change, the worse things seem to get. When I was first called into the ministry, I disregarded the call due to my insecurities and my love for the world as far as what I thought that it had to offer. I was also concerned that later in my life of ministry I would run out of sermons to preach. First, that showed my lack of understanding of the living word, which quickens us on a daily basis. Secondly, I did not realize the evil that is ever present in this world that will supply and unending amount of material to write upon when it comes to the grace and mercy of God. When I see the level of unforgiveness and utter hate that so many people carry in there heart for years, if not decades, which is totally destroys them from the inside out. 

This is why I know that I have to get back in to the beauty industry. There is so much that is spiritually & emotinally ugly in this society that I want at least be a part of something that is beautiful. I am well aware that beauty is only skin deep, but that can be just the beginning of something great. When someone looks good, they often tend to feel better. If that starting point is nurtured correct.y, then it can be a catalyst for an internal change. That is all the more reason that I vow to teach others the art of invoking an internal change, even if it starts with extenal enhancement. Once they see that they are invaluable, then they tend to want to let others know the same. Evil is what it is, but love overcomes evil if it is brought into the equation. So, today is the day to start the love. I am starting a non-profit organization that will focus on realizing self-worth,  economic empowerment,  community building and entrepreneurial spirit. I pray that if you have read this far, the. You understand where I am coming from,  because I did reveal a number of aspects about myself. I just hope that you will help me to obtain the vision that I have for the people which will be enlightened by it. You can contribute by clicking here.

Invest in your investments.

There is nothing wrong with consumption in & of itself, but there must be moderation. That is with almost anything. We have to learn the difference between what we need & what we want. It is part of life to want things, but the wants cannot supersede the needs. That is why investing should be seen as a need.  That is why knowledge of investing is a must.  An investment should yield a return, but things that are just consumables only will just be consumed. Please invest in the future of our youth by helping me to get this non-profit started to educate our youth on financial literacy.

Consumers vs producers
