8) What you make of your life is your choice-you have access to all of the tools and resources that you need.

9) The answers to your challenges are available-all you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

Life Lessons

7) Other people are only mirrors of you. You simply cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.....

Life Lessons

5) Learning does not end. There is no part of your life that does not contain lessons. If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6) "There" is no better than "here". When your "there" has become a "here", you will simply obtain a "there" that will look better to you than your present "here".....

Life Lessons

3) There are no mistakes, only lessons. Your growth is a process of experimentation, a series of trials, errors, and occasional victories. The failed experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiments that work.

4) A lesson is repeated until learned. Lessons will be repeated to you in various forms until you have learned them. When you have finally learned them, you can go on to the next lesson.

More to come.....

Life Lessons

1) You will receive a body. You may love it or hate it, but it will be yours for the duration of your
life on Planet Earth.

2) You will be presented with lessons. You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called "life."
Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn several lessons. You may like the
lessons or hate them.

To be continued.....

Encouraging Others

They all turned around and went to help him. All nine of the contestants, including the little boy who had fallen, linked arms and crossed the finish line together. This same belief holds true in the workplace-what really matters is helping the other members of your work team win, even if it means slowing down and changing your own course.

Thanks for reading.

Encouraging Others

Whether we are dealing with other people inside or outside of the workplace, we can all learn a lot from this true story:

At a Special Olympics track and field event, nine contestants, all physically or mentally disabled, gathered at the starting line for the 100 yard dash. At the gun, they all started out, except one little boy. He stumbled on the asphalt, fell a couple of times, then stopped trying and began to cry.

The other runners heard the boy crying, slowed down, and looked back at the boy.....

In your opinion, which of the following is the most effective way to recognize an employee for a significant accomplishment at work?
