] HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2010 7 Just A Thought Find your calling By RICK KRAFT Have you ever stopped to think that there is something in this world that you. and only you, can accomplish? What is it that you have been called to do in this world? Are you in sync With your calling? Are you ful- filled with how you are spending your life or do you dread getting up each day? Clergyman and writer John Powell wrote, "You have a unique message to de- liver, a unique act of love to bestow. This message, this sohg, and this act of love have be~n entrusted exclusively to the one and only you." Right out of the blocks you need to recognize that you are the first of only one edition. If God w@e tO sign and number you. He would write 1/1 on you before signing His name. Author Joseph Campbell wrote. "The privilege of life is being who you are." Rec- oglaize that you have been given the gift of life and that you are priwileged to be who you are. Ydur job is not to be anyone else. jugt you. So what are you doing with this gift called "life?" Is it some- thing that you are taking for gr/inted or is it something that you are grateful for? Is your benchmark for success the fact that you have a dog that admires you or have you set personal stan- dards higher than what others expect of you? Let me take you through a few steps that. if ap- plied, will help you be who you were called to be. First. assess where you are m your life at this time. Is your jour- ney taking you along the path you want to travel? Are you ad- vancing along the path? Are you at the right spot on the path at this time? These are some basic questions, but if you are moving on the wrong path, it really doesn't matter how fast or slow you are moving, you are eventu, ally going to end up somewhere that you don't want to be. Your days will quickly click away. None of us know how many days we have left. but we do know we have one less day today than we did yesterday at this time. In- vest your life rote your calling and you will make a positive con- tribution to this world you will someday leave behind. Second, if you have found your calling, be secure in pursu- ing it. Give it all you have. Change the lives you interact with one life at a time. St. Francis De Sales, a sixteen century French Bishop said, "Do not wish to be anything but what you are. and try to do that perfectly." Poet Rick Kraft and then be true to yourself and essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you." I like this quote by Pablo Picasso. "My mother said to me, 'if you be- come a soldier, you will be a general. If you be- come a monk, you will end up as Pope.' In- stead, I became a painter, and wound up as Picasso." To get to where you need to be, some- times you.just have to step out on faith. One of my favorite Martin Luthe~ King, J[ quotes is. "You don't have to see the whole staircase to take the next step." But you need to take action to move forward. General Dou- glas MacArthur. "Defensive strat- egy never has produced ultimate victory." Third. if you are fulfilling your calling, don't let others de- rail you. Your job in this world is not to win a popularity contest, it is to fulfill your purpose. Bill Cosby said. "I don't know what the key to success is. but I know +what the key tc~ failure is: trying to please everybody." Industrial- ist Charles Schwab said. "A man who trims himself to suit every- body will soon whittle himself away." President Harry S. Truman hit the nail on the head when he said, "How far would Moses have gone if he had taken a poll in Egypt?" Or NBA basketball coach Pat Riley, "Don't let other people tell you what you want." As you pursue your calling, give it all that you have. Major League Baseball player Jackie Robinson said it best when he say, "If you are going to play, play as hard as you can. Play like it's your last game." And Poet and essayist Ralph Waldo Emerson quipped, "Make the most of your- self, for that is all there is of you." Fourth. don't be afraid to take risks. If you are not pushing yourself outside your comfort zone, then you are not accom- plishing what you need to be ac- complishing. Playwright Nell Simon put it this way, "If no one ever took risks, Michelangelo would have painted the Sistine floor." Author Arthur Koestler said, "If the Creator had a purpose in equipping us with a neck, He surely meant us to stick it out." And finally, Test Pilot Chuck Yeager addressed risk taking when he said, "You don't concen- trate on risks. You concentrate on results. No risk is too great to pre- vent the necessary job from get- ting done." My challenge to you today is to accomplish what you were • put on this planet to accomplish. Don?t accept your dog's admira- tion as conclusive evidence that you are wonderful. Your bench- marks must be at higher levels. Author Richard Bach shared, "Your only obligation, in any life- time, is to be true to yourself." Assess where you are. Determine your calling. Fulfill your calling regardless of any nay sayers. Don't be afraid to take risks. Author/Evangelist Henry Drummond shared , "Unless people undertake more than they can possibly do, they will never do all they can do." Having no idea what tomor- row will bring, I get excited about the future ahead and what oppor- tunities to make a difference I will be able to accomplish in the days and years 1 have left.

The survey also found that they were less likely to consider. plan, or attempt suicide. All of these measures have been on a downward trend since 2003. The New Mexico Youth Risk and Resiliency Survey, con- ducted every other year by the New Mexico Department. of Health and the Public Education Department, collects data self-re- ported by students from most of the 89 school districts in New Mexicol The survey was com- pleted by 22,249 high school students and 23,628 middle school students. The survey asks students about mental health is- sues, substance use, physical ac- tivity and other behaviors. A key component of the sur- vey is the resiliency section that measures the protective factors that adolescents have. which in- clude relationships with family, school, adults and peers, commu- nity involvement, life skills and constructive use of time. Youth who have good relationships with their parents, peers, teachers and adults in the community have better school outcomes and re- duced risk behavior, including lower rates of suicide attempts. Students with low levels of c~- ing and supportive relationships with parents were more likely than students with high levels to attempt suicide in the past 12 Louis G.

"If adolescents trust and are connected to adults in their com- munity, they are much more likely to be emotionally well and healthy," said Yolanda Cordova. director of the Office of School and Adolescent Health and Sub- stance Abuse Prevention. "Adults who promote protective factors with the youth in their lives help young people to develop resil- iency." The biggest change between 2007 and 2009 was the percent of high school students reporting they had attempted suicide: 14.3 percent in 2007 and 9.7 percent in 2009. Those injured in a sui- cide attempt has gone down from 7.5 percent in 2003 to 5.1 per- cent in 2005, 4.8 percent in 2007 and 3.2 percent in 2009. About one-third of students report per- sistent feelirtgs of sadness or hopelessness, a figure that has fluctuated slightly over the years. It's Back to School Time and your friends at HMS want to remind you that not only do your kids need reading, writin and arithmetic, but children and adolescents need at least 60 minutes of exercise everyday! are decreasing, but we are still concerned that we have too many children who consider suicide." said Health Secretary Alfredo Vigil, MD. "We encourage our young people to reach out to an adult they trust if they are strug- gling with emotional issues." Among the middle school students, almost .18 percent re- ported thinking about killing themselves. 11 percent made a plan to kill themselves and 6.8 percent tried to kill themselves. Girls had a higher rate than boys in each measure, and the preva- lence of each behavior increased with grade level. For both high school and middle school, being bullied was associated with sui- cide attempts. A new state law requires a health education class for gradu- ation for all students (beginning with students entering the eighth grade in the 2012-2013 school year) that-could help increase re- siliency factors in youth so they can overcome risk factors around teem. The new class will address interrelationships of mental. emotional, social and physical health. Suicide .warning signs are behavioral or emotional changes that show someone is in crisis or at risk for suicide. To remember the most relevant warning signs, think of the pneumonic "Is Path Warm." That stands for Ideation. Substance abuse. Purposeless- hess. ,Anxiety/agitation. Trapped, Hopelessness, Withdrawal. Anger, Recklessness and Mood change. If you or someone you know is experiencing any or some of the following feelings, help is avail- able. The National Suicicle Pre- vention lifeline can be reached at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). Call- ers will be directed to a New Mexico help line that has infor- mation about state resources.
