Trying To Tie My Words Together

The best writers often tie together all of their thoughts and points into one nicely packaged product. I’d be one of the first people to tell you that I’m not one of the best writers, but I will always tell you that I’m up for a good challenge. I challenged myself to tie together my summer series posts together into one piece. Bring it on.

We here at Kottke Trucking want this blog to succeed and to be widely read. I’m still awestruck at the amount of people who do read my little ramblings. At a recent conference, I sat down and a gentleman leaned over to me and said, ‘My focus is just fine. Thank you.’

This was in reference to my then recent post about the ‘Power of Focus’ where I asked for the readers to tell me how their focus was when they next saw me. Obviously, someone was reading. This blog may never win awards or really be the ‘best of the best’, but we’re really going to try and that’s a huge part of being the best of the best.

I could go on and on about the people who I know in my life that are some of the best of the best. I got to see a lot of them last Monday at our Golf for a Cure event. We had many folks drive many, many miles to help us fight cancer at our golf tournament and those hours devoted to us really put those people at the top of my best of the best list. The time that they gave us and the Relay for Life team that we are intertwined with is the true essence of giving.

We are more than grateful for all of the hours and the dollars that we were given for the event. In this year’s event we raised north of $12,000 in an effort to defeat cancer. The battle has been a long one, but we all believe that it is a battle that will be won.

This is where the power of belief comes in. I believe that the power of belief is the most important of the topics I have talked about. The amazing thing about belief is that it becomes a whole lot more powerful when a magnitude of people believes in the same thing. On Monday, we had a golf course full of people who all believe that we can win the battle with cancer. That is truly amazing and sends chills down my spine.

I don’t expect this blog to be earth-shattering by any means, but it does give me an opportunity to give you all a little piece of my mind, my faith and my beliefs. I hope you enjoy it. I really hope that I tied these all together and appeared like a decent writer.
