Grief is Important

Grief is the toughest pain we have to deal with.  It is not the worst human experience, because it leads to resolution, but it is the most difficult for us to enter into voluntarily, which is the only way to get into it.  The rest of our human experiences just happens "to us."  Hurt, injury, anxiety, alienation, and failure all break through, and we suffer.  Grief does not "break through."  It is something we enter into.
                                                                   Author Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend

How People Grow

...Grief is the one that heals all the others.  It is the most important pain there is...It heals.  It restores.  It changes things that have gone bad.  Moreover, it is the only place where we get comforted when things have gone wrong....What is so special about grief?  Why is it the "pain that heals"?  Because grief is God's way of our getting finished with the bad stuff of life.  It is the process by which we "get over it," by which we "let it go"... The soul is designed to finish things.  It is designed to grieve...Cry it out, and it will get out.  It will be over. Author Judy Brizendine

Laughter's Benefits Part II

In addition to the healing benefits of laughter, research has shown that the combination of humor along with modern medical treatment increases positive outcomes.  Various sources have reported the average adult generally laughs a fraction of the amount the average child laughs (fifteen-seventeen times per day for adults versus 300-400 times per day for children).  So considering laughter's miracle benefits, adults may want to try a little harder to laugh more!  Author Dr. William F. Fry, Jr.


Laughter's Benefits

Laughter is a "healing" escape.  Since its benefits are so great, think about programming laughter into your life... intentionally!  Whatever you have to do to make it happen, be certain to include laughter as a regular part of your life. Let go of guilty thoughts.  It's okay to laugh.  More than okay, it will boost your healing.  You need moments - and intervals - of relief from your pain.  Author Dr. Will F. Fry, Jr.



Mr. Motivator Says

Build leaders and teams will come.
If you want to be a leader, you've got to build you.
We build ourselves.
You must become a student of leadership.
Motivation gets you started, but good habits will help you succeed.
You must be ...
Coachable (All good leaders are good followers).
Be positive and optimistic.
You gotta be a good communicator.
You must be an encourager and make people feel good about themselves.
You must have self-discipline in order to be a good leader.
\You must study to show yourself approved.  Know your product and your competitors.
You gotta be a teacher and duplicator (teach people to do what you do).
Intensity (work hard, focus on recruiting and building a team).
You gotta have tenacity.  (Most people quit before they get good at doing what they love doing.  When you are fortunate enough to have a job doing what you enjoy doing, you do not have a job, you have a career and a lifestyle.
Never give up!  Set goals that are realistic and obtainable.
When you help enough people become successful, you automatically become successful.  You build teams by building leaders.

Success is yours, walk in it!
Dare to Dream and Keep Thinking Big!
You will discover your purpose in life.                         Author Mr. Motivator
