DO WHAT'S RIGHT EVEN WHEN YOU DON'T FEEL LIKE IT

Thomas A. Buckner said, “To bring one’s self to a frame of mind and to the proper energy to accomplish things that require plain hard work continuously is the one big battle that everyone has. When this battle is won for all time, then everything is easy.”

As Arthur Gordon, author of A Touch of Wonder, said, “Nothing is easier than saying words. Nothing is harder than living them, day after day. What you promise today much be renewed and redecided tomorrow and each day that stretches our before you.”

People are insecure… give them confidence.
People want to feel special… sincerely compliment them.
People desire a better tomorrow… show them hope.
People need to be understood… listen to them.
People are selfish… speak to their needs first.
People get emotionally low… encourage them.
People want to be associated with success… help them win.
