Here’s what the word “Encourage” actually means…

The story below is very scary, but true. You can pour courage into others...else.

Jenna (not her real name) is married to a friend of mine. She took her kids to a large amusement park in Atlanta on one of the hottest days of the summer. It was the grand opening of a huge new ride! The local TV and radio stations had been telling of this day for months. The new ride was the star attraction of the park. The lines were never longer.

In a sea of sweating moms and whiny kids, Jenna and her kids had been moving up about an inch at a time. The heat was stifling, but their suffering was about to be worth it: they could now see the front of the line and they would be getting on the ride in the next five minutes.

The Courage to Stop Thinking Like a Criminal

When life gets hard, do this!

I’m convinced that most people in jail have an “it’s not my fault” mentality. Some of them freely admit that they did wrong, but “it’s not nearly as bad as what that guy did, and he didn’t have to serve any time… it’s not fair.”

It’s worth more than you think!

You'll be happier, more productive, and more able to help others!

Serious Question:
How much would it be worth to you if October-December of 2017 becomes your most productive quarter ever? What would that be worth? What if that productivity continued into 2018–what would that be worth to you?

I believe that Michael Hyatt’s Free to Focus course on your personal productivity is the best in the world. Why? Because it’s not so complicated that you’ll say, “Forget it,” and it is laid-out in such a way that keeps you looking forward to the next day. But today is the last day you can get it for another year (the fun course has an ironclad money back guarantee).

Truth in Advertising! I purchase Michael Hyatt’s products for myself! I love them and I recommend them to others. If you purchase his program through the link below, I receive a little bit of compensation from Michael for “recommending” you. I truly don’t know how much (and I don’t care). It’s just a great product with risk-free guarantee. Just take a look at it because it goes away tonight at midnight.

A Good Team vs a Great Team
