BeAwesome: #269 Translate

Create a compelling vision, one that takes people to a new place, and then translate that vision into a reality- Warren G. Bennis 



Understanding languages and dynamics of a voice is extremely difficult. The different tones. Pronunciation. Speaking a different language is one of the most difficult things to do in the world. Watching someone start and begin to understand a different language is fascinating. It is something that takes an enormous amount of persistence. Patience. Focus and desire to make right. You cannot wake up and learn another language. This year I’ve been able witness the process of a student who is translating a different language. It is amazing how fast young kids can pick up on words and sentence sounds. This student made me think. What is the purpose of translating anyways. Why do we only translate words and languages when life is about translating itself. Why is it that we stop in translation when things get tough or when things don’t go the way we want them too?


To render in another language. To put into simpler terms. Explain or interpret. To express differently. Take something make it your own. Translate your dreams and wildest hopes into something real. Everyone always talks about doing. And making things happen. But who is willing to translate those thoughts into action. Who is ready to  take a risk and try something worth trying. When one becomes older, and confident. One will sooner or later become comfortable. Translate that comfort into hunger. Translate that comfort to expression in another medium. Go from one place to another.Take the time to really think about life and its ways to translate your feelings and thoughts towards something/someone. Life is often about seeing who can translate when presented with different challenges. And those who are able to do so. Usually prevail.


Those who are AWESOME translate. We take the challenges that are presented to us throughout life and translate them into meaningful experiences. We use every aspect of life to lift ourselves up. To encourage ourselves to do better and make a difference. We translate our thoughts when we want to anger. We translate our hands when we forget to give. Translate
