What Equals 100%?
Diane in Old Hickory Council, NC
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint:
What Equals 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been in situations where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 101%? What equals 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these Questions:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
H - A - R - D - W - O - R - K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
K - N - O - W - L - E - D - G - E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
A - T - T - I - T - U - D - E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%
AND, look how far the love of God will take you
L- O- V - E - O - F - G - O - D
12+15+22+5+15+6+7+15+4 = 101%
Thus, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that:
While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it's the Love of God that will put you over the top! It's up to you if you share this with friends & loved ones.
It's not WHAT you have in your life, but Whom you have in your life that COUNTS!
