And so we enter a new week – a week filled with hope and endless possibilities. It’s also the last week before the holiday season officially begins. In the United States, next week Thursday is Thanksgiving Day and then the holiday shopping bonanza begins.
Acknowledge your strengths and weaknesses
Consider the limitless possibilities of what you may accomplish
Take small steps daily toward realizing your dreams
Inspire others to join you on your journey
Obey your instincts and work relentlessly
Nurture your dream until it becomes reality
This poem applies to both our professional and personal lives. If we want to accomplish great things in the workplace, we have to be proactive and take action. Likewise, if we want the families we dream of, we have to make it happen.
Our children live what they learn from us. If we want them to reach for the stars and conquer the world, we have to lead by example. How can we expect them to make good grades when the very thing that brings good grades – hard work – isn’t taught to them? If they see us working diligently, they will learn that success isn’t something you sit and dream about, but rather something to reach out and grasp for yourself.
Let’s take action today so that all the good things we envision for our families and ourselves will become reality.
Enjoy your A-C-T-I-O-N filled day!
