Remember Why You’re Here

“I once succumbed to the fad of fasting and went for six days and nights without eating.  It wasn’t difficult.  I was less hungry at the end of the sixth day than I was at the end of the second.  Yet I know, as you know, people who would think they had committed a crime if they let their families or employees go for six days without food; but they will let them go for six days, and six weeks, and sometimes sixty years without giving them the hearty appreciation that they crave almost as much as they crave food.”

This excerpt is taken from How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie.  It should be a reminder to not forget why you’re here and what really matters.  A reminder to show your appreciation for everything that you have.  It is far too easy to lose sight of who you are and all the great things you have in your life, so take time to reflect and appreciate those things.  Invest time with the people who you are closest to.  Make it your goal to leave those around you feeling better than they did when you arrived.  Pay them a compliment.  It will make you feel good and it will make them feel good too.  Put your positive energy in the air.

Happy Wednesday!
