Just for today find someone to encourage and inspire to reach their full potential. What you put out in the world will inevitably make its way back to you. I’m the first to admit that when we are experiencing particularly hard times this appears to be the farthest thing from the truth.
However, there are any number of reasons this is true, the simplest of which can be explained in that people as a general rule like to associate with, gravitate towards, and yes, when they’re in a position to do so make the choice to work with, and hire those people who have an upbeat and positive attitude — and who look for the good in situations.
As you move through your day today keep the following saying in mind, “life’s like a boomerang, the more good you throw out, the more you receive in return.”
To prove the truth in the ideas shared above, carry a little journal around, keep track of how many times your “good deeds” make their way back to you in the course of a month or two.
Don’t go into this little exercise looking to prove it wrong, or more than likely that’s precisely what you’ll end up doing.
Remember, more often than not we get exactly what we focus on, whether that’s a good thing or not depends at least to some degree on what you and I go looking for and take notice of in life.
It’s your life, LIVE BIG!
I hope you find the following quote & picture inspiring. As was once wisely said, “all else fails without first action.” I hope you will give some thought to the words in the quote below. As you move through your day, look for ways to adapt the main idea and remember that the actions you take, as well as don’t take act upon go into what you get out of life’s adventure.
The quote below reads: A day will never be anymore than what you make of it. Practice being a “doer”! — Josh S. Hinds
Find someone to encourage. Of all the gifts you possess truly one of the greatest is the ability to build up and
help another person to do the best they can.
An interesting thing happens when you give of this special gift — much in the same way a magnet works, you begin to pull into your life people, opportunities and life experiences of a positive nature.
To better understand this, consider the wise words which state simply, yet profoundly: “You reap what you sow”. In short, what you put out to the world makes its way back to you. My friend, if you’ll concede that there’s truth in that wouldn’t it make sense to be proactive when it comes to looking for ways to encourage others? I think so!
Going forward begin to look at your life as though you are an artist with the ability to paint on your canvas a magnificent masterpiece. While this in itself is incredible — consider that you also have the added advantage of literally being able to start a new work of art at will.
In the moment you find yourself on a path which doesn’t serve you, you can choose to course correct. You have the ability to succeed at whatever you desire. Let go of the broken idea that it has to happen overnight in order to be deemed a success.
Take joy in your achievement journey, knowing that as long as you stay in the game, and allow yourself to learn the lessons which can be gleaned from any challenges which may pop up along the way you will reach your intended destination.
You were made for greatness — believe it and live your life with an outlook of exploration and a willingness to let your gifts and talents flow.

There’s a saying that I believe holds true. It says, “if you wish to receive more of life’s rewards, look to create more value for others”.
The question then becomes how does one go about creating value. This is an area where most folks over think it in my humble opinion.
Giving value can, and does come in many forms. It can range from the referral which leads to a new source of business, all the way down to the person who shares a smile with another — that in turn helps them start their day on a positive note.
A simple, but effective way to create value…
One of the simplest ways I know to make a positive impact is to adopt the role of people builder and encourager to others. If you will look for opportunities to point out the good in those around you, you’ll begin to notice that others are not only more attracted to you, but that in many cases bigger and better opportunities are as well.
The simple fact that so few people practice the art of proactive encouragement puts those who make it a regular part of their routine in an enviable place.
In a world where more often than not others are more interested in bringing others down, to make themselves look better, those who build others up are a valuable asset to have around. Be that person, and you’ll begin to reap more of the rich rewards that go along with doing so.
It’s your life, LIVE BIG!
