DELAYED But Not Denied

May 19, 2012

by Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes

In my journey I have been DELAYED where my course was Detoured and I became Easily influenced. This put me at a Loss and I became Absent and then just Yawned all together. The Echo of trouble kept repeating in my life and soon caused Damage. Even with all that happening I was DELAYED But Not Denied.

Detour. Growing up I wanted to be a pro athlete or Hip Hop star. Year after year I would play various sports including basketball, football, track and field and bowling thinking this was the answer to my destiny. Rap helped me develop writing skills and I kept working on new ideas all of the time. Writing skills were different then study skills as I started to fall behind.

Easily. I didn’t even see it coming. Girls started to like me and if you had a girlfriend back then you were the man. More time was going into trying to meet Miss right than my academics and even my athletics started to suffer. There was no he said she said it was all about what she said.

Loss. When my grades and athletic ability started to decline I was not just at a loss for words I started to lose confidence. I was great with the girls but where it counted most I was replaced as a starter on the field. When you lose at one thing a feeling comes that you will lose at another.

Absent. By the time I graduated from High School I felt like my life was empty. I had played sports since I was 5 years old and had no scholarships offers to show for it. My confidence was gone and I hadn’t even taken the ACT Test so I could get into college.  I graduated from High School but the thing that was absent was my purpose.

Yawn. When you lose track of your goals and have no purpose you become bored. When you are not excited about too many things you will do whatever it takes to have fun. The hard lesson I learned was that in order to have fun in life you have to make life fun.

Echo. When you have no direction you will follow what everyone else is doing. I became an alcoholic at an early age. I mastered how to lie to my parents and stay out all night. I never knew the things I did as a child I would see done exactly the way I did them by my own children.

Damage. Sitting on the porch of my mother’s house I realized that I was damaged goods. I had to look in the mirror and hear the truth. I made it through High School but had not even applied to any colleges. My ACT score came back and I failed the test. Due to my health I had already ruled out a military career.

Just like many of you I was DELAYED But Not Denied. If you are on Detour turn around and get back on track. If you are Easily influenced buckle down and be the one that starts to inspire others. If you are tired of Losing, start winning. If you have been Absent show up and give quality time. If you don’t want to Yawn get up and make it happen at the break of dawn. Nothing is wrong with an Echo just find positive things to repeat. Guess what? The word is Damage and not done. Damage means you have been hit but not too hurt to holler back. When you are done it means that it’s over for you Rover.

I was DELAYED but that’s when my mother prayed

My son is DELAYED but don’t let him be denied

Let him do right and hear words from the wise

Inspire him to create what others want to buy

Bless him when he tries so his dreams are multiplied

Through the prayers of my mother and with the help of my Brother David I was able to pass the ACT and enroll in Tennessee State University and receive a B.A. in Business Administration.

I was DELAYED But Not Denied.

One L Of A Day

October 6, 2011

I was at work thinking of how good of a day it will be when I get off. I had know idea that it would be even better than I imagined. It reminds me of the classic Today Was A Good by Ice Cube. With benefits being cut short for those who have jobs and times getting even tougher for the ones who have no employment I refuse to talk about the hell we are going through. I’m here to lift your spirits well with stories I’m blessed to tell and their all through the letter L.

Leave. Will I get to go home? At work enough people have to come in order for you to get relieved from duty. I did my eight and now I get to skate. It feels good when everyone comes to work like they should. No overtime and we get off work on time.  The first blessing in this day is to clock out and head home.

Love.  In Corinthians it says faith, hope and love and the greatest of these is love. At work I had faith and hope that I would get to come home to my family whom I love. The scriptures say that love never fail. Every time I’m in the arms of the helpmate there are no words that can describe our vibe.  The second blessing I received is that I get to love the one I’m with.

Linger. I fall asleep and wake up by myself. My wife is off to work. A great feeling is knowing someone was there with you and that at the end of the day they are coming back. You never forget real moments as they stay in your mind forever. The third blessing I  witnessed is the feeling of love in the spirit.

Look. I know my hair is a mess but the barber has the skills to make my style manifest. I want to look fab to match my gift for gab. In the car I hop for my trip to the barbershop. After 30 minutes later I have the fade that will wake up the haters. The fourth blessing is I get a chance to look my best.

Lesson. Education is about giving and receiving. I was teaching others about how to build their personal brand on the internet. Through them  I was learning how to be a better teacher.  It’s never about me and that’s why I always share to help someone bring their dream to life.  The fifth blessing of my day is to teach those within your reach.

Lady. My daughter comes home from school and speaks. I have been working with her lately on how to put yourself in position to win.  I think she is getting it sometimes. I won’t assume but victories do come in small packages. I hope one day she becomes half the lady that her mother is. The sixth blessing is that you have to show up to help them grow up.

Later. It’s only 4:37 PM on Thursday October 6th, 2011 and I’m already thinking about the future. I can’t wait for my wife to come back home so we can meet and greet at the door and plant a kiss and talk about how all the  time that’s been missed. the candy is call Now and Later. Think about how you want your life now so that your dreams can manifest for you later. The seventh blessing is to be able to plan.

I hope you have One L Of A Day where nothing negative comes your way where the things that matter want to hang and stay where the fun comes back and gives your life play. If this is not you or your life close your eyes and say “God soon and very soon please touch my life with One L Of A Day.”
