Lately I’ve heard a lot of people complaining. After awhile the bad news gets to you. We want everything to get fixed fast. Looks like we’ll have to wait a while longer for the economy to turn around. But remember, we live in a great nation, the land of plenty. Be thankful for whatever in your life is good. And pass along thanks. Here’s a great excerpt from Bryan Flanagan, one of our guest speakers.

It is from his book, Now go Sell Somebody Something.

"Who gave you your first break?
Was it an educator or a coach, a Sunday School teacher, a boss, an associate? Do you remember who had a positive impact early in your business career? What was his or her name?
How did he contribute to your growth and development?
What did she say that you really remember?
How did he know that you needed to hear those exact words just at the right time?
Who came to your rescue when you needed it most?
Who provided the arms to hold you, the ears to listen, and the heart to accept and not judge when you needed it?
Who ventured out to rescue you and then brought you safely back to shore?
Do you remember those people who helped you most in life?

Did you remember to thank them for their help?

If you did not, you made a mistake.
It's not too late to thank them.
Take the time TODAY to thank them.
Thank them and express your gratitude. If you do not, you are making another mistake. Now go sell somebody something."

Moving forward....
