Are you the CEO in your relationships? I was having a conversation with a gentleman about his current situation; shop talk. He was explaining to me how he was “involved” but “not really” with someone. He went on the tell me how he was being “respectful” of the other person by allowing them to “take their time” and “not rush” into anything, all the while his body language and gestures signaled that he truly desired much more. How many times have we done this? Shorted ourselves because although we advertised for a fulltime employee we settle for ones that barley meet the minimum qualifications. How many times have they told us upfront that they weren’t in the position, time wise, or not interested in a fulltime position. Then how many times, have we just overlooked that because of the “potential?” So, we accept the applicant “as is” and get disappointed in the end. Let’s start advertising and only interviewing those that share our same vision and respect our mission. Let’s retake possession of our relationships. After all, there is nothing wrong with asking what his/hers five-year plan is.
Why wait? what are you waiting for?
Will they ever meet you where you’re at?
Truth is they should’ve already been there
you were there and they know you’re there
but if they cared then they would have met you there
but you’re waiting for them to get there but their there was not your there
they may have already been there, been somebody else’s there
If you keep waiting for them there
you will never get there and they may never come there
But you keep waiting….
if they were there, they would’ve been there, long before you or when you got there
so when you made it there y’all would’ve met there
But instead you’re there and they’re there so y’all never get there
You’re there keeps waiting for their there to get there
all the while they know they’re not coming there
because they never wanted to be there
And they told you that when you tried to meet them there
THEY WERE NOT THERE!
and you kept trying to pull them there, push them and plead with them there
but they remain there
you knew they weren’t there but somehow, they convinced you, or more like you convinced you
that in time they would get there
So you keep waiting….
you move you’re there to their there
but when you get there, they’re not there
but they keep telling you “keep waiting because I will get there”
so you remain standing there, holding your place there standing steadfast there, weathering every storm there,
and they do
they eventually get there
But they’re over there and you’re over there
and you realize you’ve been there waiting on them to get there
but they’re there is over there meeting with Her there
and you Were there
still waiting ……
you were there waiting on them to get there when they should’ve already been there
but they were already there
and they’re there was not you’re there
and you missed out on what was over there
because you were there waiting on them to get there
when He was already there; waiting to meet you there
