20 Feb THIS WEEK: TAKE PRIDE
Have you ever done something that you were proud of? Maybe it was a piece of art or speech you made, a promotion you got, or reaching an exercise goal. Whatever comes to mind for you, we’re pretty sure you had to put some skin in the game to achieve it. And, it probably felt pretty good to have a sense of personal pride and joy in your accomplishment… because you earned it. See, we believe that everyone has experienced that sense of pleasure and satisfaction at least once in their life. But what about when it comes to your community or city or country? Do you feel the same sense of achievement or something different? Well, this week, we want you to TAKE PRIDE in your community. But herein lies the rub. Every day, we have two options: (1) sit back and complain about everything that is wrong, or (2) get involved, get to work, and make it happen. Just like our personal goals, in order for us to take pride in our communities, our schools, our towns, our states, and country, we have to put some skin in the game there too. So how about making your place in this world one that you feel a sense of accomplishment for and want to share with others. Taking pride matters.
