The big election in the U.S. has some people excited, others disappointed,
and almost everyone worried about what is going to unfold in the next
What we all need is a big dose of HOPE.
Hope that inspires action that brings out the best in all of us to create a
better life for our families and a better world for our neighbors.
I think this quote from Dad sums up the current climate perfectly: “Other
people and things can stop you temporarily. You are the only one
who can do it permanently.” Zig Ziglar
I watched Dad encounter grave circumstances and situations that were
not of his choosing. With a glimmer in his eyes and a determination in
his jaw, I could see hope vibrate out of his soul. You see, he knew he
had a choice of how he responded to the situation. And with that
understanding that he had the power to control his own attitude and
actions, he would go to work.
Work for Dad meant studying and reading material hours each day that
he could use to help other people have a more successful life. He
was convinced that if he could learn one more thing and teach it to one
more person, the world would be a better place.
What about you? Is there something you can learn today that will help
you grow and, in turn, allow you to help someone else through a tough
time? You bet there is!
I am betting that YOU, like Dad, will decided to become the HOPE that
the world needs right now. It’s a choice and an awesome responsibility –
you have what it takes!
You are Born To Win, so go ahead and Live To Win!
