“If human beings are perceived as potentials rather than problems, as possessing strengths instead of weaknesses, as unlimited rather that dull and unresponsive, then they thrive and grow to their capabilities.” – Bob Conklin
Progress is a slow, sometimes painful journey; and typically, our minor daily achievements are unseen, unrecognized – even to ourselves.
You may have had a thriving moment today.
An objective eye may have seen you powering through pushups, walking with conviction across an intersection,
Or stepping away from a power lunch with a knowing grin.
An adoring eye may have recognized your serenity, your hope, your beauty, your passion, your fire, your faith.
The envious eye noticed your strength, your confidence, your determination.
Find yourself in your most powerful moments -even if they are only just moments. Recognize your strength, beauty, conviction, determination. To thrive is to make steady progress; it is a VERB you must FEEL and DO.. Fully experience and acknowledge your positive moments, stack them like bricks! Build a powerful wall; a testament to who you are, all that you have done.
“Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb.”– Sir Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965)
