All of us have at least one good friend who inspires us. In my case I've got a few of them, although the older l get the more I redefine the difference between really good friends and friends who are just good acquaintances. Well, this morning I want to talk about two really good friends, Michele Celentano and her husband Paul.
If you've heard Michele speak or been fortunate enough to take one of her workshops, then you already understand her ability to motivate and help you take your work to a higher level. Well, meet Michele and Paul's refrigerator door above. I think I've discovered her secret...she's got great magnets!
"Don't be pushed by your problems be led by your dreams."
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
"It's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years."
Notice a trend in her themes? This is the stuff that Michele and Paul live by. It's not just about having a few cute expressions you found on a magnet, but paying attention to what they say.
In yesterday's post I talked about getting the negative people out of your life, well today is just a reminder to cherish those positive people who cross your path. Remember to bring new people into your network who are positive, motivational and help you focus on the courage you need to face the challenges of your business. They can help you grow your skill set and create the kind of life you aspire to have.
Most important of all they add a richness to your life. There's a special sense of peace and consistency they can add to your otherwise hectic world. Just like a great chef working with incredible spices and seasonings, great friends are the spice of life that turns each day into something amazing.
The bottom magnet is pretty hard to read in that shot, but here's what it says,
Courage does not always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice
at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow,"
Wishing everybody a terrific Thursday and one filled with new friendships that grow and help you flourish!
