IT – Harley Yoder

Posted · 7 Comments

Some people have IT! Others don’t. What is the definition of IT? I don’t know that I know. I just know that some people get IT and others don’t. Some people make decisions on a daily basis that are obvious to every one around them that they get IT. They are highly effective. Likewise they are others around us that no matter what they do or how hard they try, they do not quite get IT! What is the difference? Do those that get IT work harder than everybody else? I think not. In most cases. People that really get IT have very balanced lives! Can somebody tell me what IT is? Maybe if we identify IT, we can start having more Its!

    I HAVE NOT MET A PERSON WITH “IT” THAT WAS NOT IN A GOOD RELATONSHIP WITH JESUS. I THINK THE BALANCE YOU SPOKE OF MAY BE ONE OF THE BIGGEST FACTORS. GOD, FAMILY, WORK, RELATIONSHIPS , FINANCES AND MANY MORE THINGS COMPETE FOR OUR TIME AND THOSE WITH “IT” SEEM TO BE IN PRETTY GOOD BALANCE. “IT” IS GOING TO BE HARD TO DEFINE BUT IS USUALLY EASY TO SEE

    I spent a little time thinking about “IT” this weekend. I agree with Mark in that “IT” must be defined by a working relationship with Christ. However, I know many people that don’t get “IT”. Is “IT” inherited, or can we develop “IT”? In my opinion, environment drives “IT” some but “IT” may also be instilled in you before your born. Not sure exactly though. (how do you like that open ended answer?! ) 🙂

    In some cases I’m not sure if having “IT” requires you to have a relationship with Jesus. But then again those that do not might have “IT” at work and not have “IT” at home?? Or vise versa, but I guess people think of “IT” differently. Some people just have “IT” and some don’t. I know when it comes to dealing with someone on a daily basis that does not have “IT” makes it harder and sometimes frustrating. I’m not sure you can change someone that does not have “IT”

    So another words, you can’t learn “it”?

    ??? Maybe so, but for alot of people it’s hard to change you’re ways. Sometimes you can’t teach a old dog new tricks.

    “It” requires all of the above but takes dedication and patience to keep all the elements in balance. Understanding that God reigns and listening to him when he says not to worry is part of my foundation. Added passions such as my family, my art and a drive to attain a park bench up in heaven to sleep on helps me try to attain good balance. I will let someone else decide if I have “IT” but let it be after I have lived a full life as to view and quantify the experience here on earth.

    I believe IT is a choice we make as people to attain. IT has many different names: Excellence, Balance, Passion, Love for God being a few of them. I believe we are all capable of attaining IT in life if we set our minds to it. We are all leaders in life no matter are we the General Manager, salesperson, order puller, department manager, truck driver, administrative assistant, administrative staff, or designer. We all play an important role as a leader in our jobs. Do we choose to every day do that job to the best of our abilities? I believe the people that CHOOSE to do that, HAVE IT. I believe this principle applies to all areas of life, not just our job. I don’t think people work harder, they just discipline themselves.
    I once knew a man that had IT. He was a football coach. A lot of his players just knew him as COACH. He loved God first of all but loved everyone around him just as much. He wanted the best for everyone in life and always taught all his players to do the right thing first. He was a very optimistic person. Failing was not an option. When he did fail he took it all in stride and became better because of it. He was not a drill sergeant. He did everything through God’s eyes of love. He made everyone around him better.
    Did God give him anything special that the rest of us don’t have? I don’t think so. He maybe had more talents than some people. But with those talents he used them, cultivated them, and “doubled” them. It doesn’t matter if God gives us 1 talent or 10 talents. We are called to do the very best with what he has given us!
    So today are “YOU” CHOOSING “IT”? Remember, we are only given one shot in life; make the most of it! No regrets! You do affect everyone around you no matter what you think. Am I making people around me better? Am I choosing IT and spreading IT around.
    And in the words of Dabo….”I’M ALL IN!”
