Execute is a big word when carrying out a maneuver, or a plan has been accomplished.

The successful execution of a plan can fill a lot of voids, but the word execute is also attached to some deadly consequences oftentimes leading to punishment for a crime so serious it’s commonly referred to as the Death Sentence.

Well, am not talking about that execution, am talking about the other ones, the ones concerning putting into place a real plan that is ready to execute (start); an order, or course of action. 

Take note; there are plans out there that should never make it outside of some people’s head or their imaginative off the rail outlook on things that are not normal, (mental frailty, devilish practices, etc…) some things need to stay in check.

Ideals are easy to come by and most of us have an abundance of them; the thing is, execution is the only way to complete any plan, including the ones we didn’t plan; I was sitting in a school auditorium when a lady fell dead out of her seat, now I am sure she had not planned that since it was her granddaughter’s graduation.

We just never know, even when planning our death, put a plan in place just in case you don’t get to have the last say.  Now, that’s something to think about, this is too, It’s the execution of any plan that matters, never the idea.

An old Japanese Proverb tells us Vision without execution is a daydream, and execution without vision is a nightmare; take singers for instance, they know a really Great talent has the ability to execute the music, just like team members understand “Great execution, that’s what you have to do when you’re playing Great teams”.

Leaders know when on a job site it obligates them to execute the company’s business by any means necessary; do it themselves, hire more help, etc…or risk losing the job; Here lies the problem; ideas are plentiful, but the actual execution of these ideas are far and in-between. 

I am guilty several times over; I have had ideas that I discussed with others, and sought after those who could help with my plan; help with something I couldn’t do, draw the blueprint, build a prototype, but…

I lost my chance to hit the jackpot all because of Failure to Execute. 

It’s simple, I didn’t put in the work, and I paid a price.  Twenty-some years later I would see an idea I had on AS SEEN ON TV… All because I did not execute my plan.  I thought I needed a partner when the idea was enough.

I think most of us have lost out on something worthwhile that is directly related to slothful behavior (lazy).  My normal reaction when laziness was the main cause of my downfalls was to try to clean it up by saying it wasn’t my turn, but not this time, it was all me.

The sad thing is my project didn’t require electronics, electrical power, etc.; it’s a game that would have fit in then just like it does now.

We need to understand failure is not a death sentence, failure is not about insecurities (afraid to, no knowledge of, etc.), it’s about The Law of the Land, and that is for us to fall down in order to learn how to get up; and…

Stop saying it’s complicated when you fail to executeFailures are all about I bet I don’t do that again; It’s a learning process to teach us how to plan the execution of our plan, then executes the plan. 

Effective execution of a plan is what counts not mere planning on paper; it is not what we put on our plate or even what we eat that provides nourishment and growth, it’s what we digest.

Careful now, don’t become over-confident and neglect to fact check every aspect of your work (leadership); However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.  Sir Winston Churchill.

And it’s always a good idea to learn the language of your task or goals; the particulars about the item, how does it work, what’s it made of, etc.?

And just so you know, Bad communication is a disconnect between strategy and execution.

Hate and Fear are two of the Three Musketeers of Misery; the other is Jealousy, these action words are not your friend, and they are not to be entertained at any cost.  Once caught in their ugly snare of dismal living, your life can go to the Dark-side where it may waddle for years, eliminating the possibility of attaining Peace if you are unforgiving and revengeful.

Hate, and Fear bind together circling our emotions with nothing short of loathing.  Hatred is never anything but fear-if you feared no one, you would hate no one.  Hugh Downs.

Hate and Fear hinder the peace of mind, you’re just mentally suffering all the time, coupled with being in a constant state of delusions.  The thing is, it’s your choice, your attitude, your life.  Make the right decision no matter how many armies are braced against you or wattle in the Land of the Lost.

I know that may sound hard to do and it is, but look at it this way.  If you claim you were born to be miserable all your life at least pick your own battles.  I can drag myself to Hell with my own ideas let alone yours.  If we don’t fight for ourselves there is no coming back, but nothing is set in concrete when it comes to this world, and things can change in a blink of an eye.

I know how suddenly we can leave this earth.  I was attending an event held in a school auditorium when the woman seated in front of me fell dead out of her seat.  I didn’t believe for one minute she was expecting that, but it does go to show we are not in control.  

Fear is the path to the dark side, so focus; it determines your reality, and be extra careful because every person or thing we deal with may not be what it seems.   

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.  1st John 4:1 KJV

Did you know if we were not fearful we wouldn’t have demons, the Lord himself told us he did not give us a spirit of fear?  Read it for yourself: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7  KJV

It seems as if we all have demons we just need to live above them, the way I understand it is there are ghosts that are demons pretending to be Dead People.

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities, against powers, against the rules of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.  Ephesians 6:12 KJV

Just so you know, Fear creates anger and anger is the beginning of hate and hate leads to our downfall, but have you ever noticed when we fall in love there is no fear or hatred in the mix?  Anyway, it’s ignorance that breeds hatred and fear, not love.

For me, Peace is a personal joy between me and God.  Now don’t get me wrong I love all the earthly things that are peaceful too.  But, sometimes we can find ourselves in some strange situations that are not so peaceful, wondering How the Hell did I get here?  Well, you could have been voted in, acquire the position from a long line of…, or placed in some unique role because you happen to be there, or you did it to yourself, trapped.  You get my point.

In order to achieve our destiny coupled with most of our wishes, which mostly comprises of having a long life, paired with happiness that’s intertwined with love, and of course, some semblance of peace.  But, in order to gain that small measure of joy and all the perks that come with it, first we must recognize, we may be getting in our own way.

Just so you know, Peace is a way of life that doesn’t work well with hate, fear, or jealousy including things I cannot name.

Who are we trying to fool other than ourselves?  Most know they are the #1 killer of their own peace, and it’s all determined by how we take care of our mental, physical and Spiritual selves.  Did you know even the simplest of things without peace can be incredibly hard?

We can make life easier on ourselves by slamming the door on hate and fear; this allows for Peace be within thy walls, and prosperity within thy palaces.  Psalm 122:7

FYI: Peace comes from within do not seek it without, while keeping in mind that ignorance is a natural menace to peace.  But, more importantly, Peace is not meant to be in a place where there is no trouble, noise, or hard work.  It’s meant to be in the midst of these things while still remaining calm in your heart.
