A Message to Garcia is an extremely inspirational reading with woven leadership qualities throughout his text.
Ever wondered what it takes to make someone working? Ever wondered what motivates a person to do something? Each requested by the lack of staff expertise to do the job? Well, I too, and until I read Message To Garcia, I wondered what it was about others and myself that I was hitting against.
Here is a test that has captured considerable attention. It was published in 1899 by the American philosopher Elbert Hubbard. Over the years 40 million copies were printed. As soon as I read this text, I got my own game in life. Instantly, I became more productive. It seems that we may be educated in the production and leadership by creative pieces. I refer to this time of text to another. He still lifts me.
The test is performed during the Spanish-American War. This is a man who was given the sole task by President McKinley in 1898 to provide a letter to Garcia, the leader of the rebels in Cuba. The person to deliver the letter was named Rowan. The fact that he simply took the letter, crossed the sea and went through the jungle to find Garcia distinguished hand, is truly inspiring. He did not ask how he could find Garcia. He did not ask that Garcia, or it would not be better if the letter was delivered at another time. He took the job, worked on what was needed and delivered the letter, and came to the other side of Cuba, returned home.
We wondered what kind of person was Rowan. How is it that it does not weaken, stopping on the way? How many people are there in this world that could actually deliver a message to Garcia? How Much? Not much.
How many people you know that when you give them a course of action, they will not divert their attention? Call the union? Put it in the future? How many times have you made someone a job, only to ask you if you are sure this is necessary? Or, perhaps it might be better if someone else has done the job instead?
This short literary work is a masterpiece of inspiration of the pen. It does not matter who wrote or even who was Elbert Hubbard. This short-creation strikes a chord in most of us. It encourages us to ignore the shroud of apathy, and the associated reasoning, which we bogs to wallow in the uncertainty of life. It allows us to have the right to aspire to develop this quality we call spine.
Green Elbert Hubbard became rich and famous as a result of this one piece. I included on my site Scientology because I like his prose.
I hope you get a chance to enjoy reading.
