(From previous issue) 42. Overcome Defeat When you decide defeat is temporary, it is. When you decide it will ruin you, it does. (Stephanie Kathan) 43. Focus on What You Want Think about what you want, not what you don't want. Guard your thoughts carefully, they create your experiences. (Jessica Maria Carpenter) 44. Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway Fear is the most debilitating thing in the universe. It prevents us from living the life we want. I encourage everyone to think about this: "What would you do if you knew you would not fail?" Just imagine what you could do. (Ritchie Lucas) 45. Give Others the Benefit of the Doubt With everything and everyone, assume good intent. Be kinder than necessary, you never know someone's personal struggles. (Julie Spealler Weldon) 46. Act With Purpose Know why you do what you do. It will enable you to lead with passion. It will lift you when you fall. It will inspire others to join you. (Don Yoakum) 47. Just Do It! There's one way to improve your life now….Live It! Don't be afraid of taking a flight, boarding a ship, riding a train. Live your life as if your life has meaning. (Barbara Vidal) 48. It Really Is All in The Name Speak someone's name to them often and in an affirming tone. It seems the smallest thing that makes the largest difference in children, youth and adults. This little practice of valuing a person by calling their name followed by an encouragement will build trust and cause people to flourish! (Nancy Clegg) 49. Make Others Feel Welcome Wherever you may be-at the grocery store, at church, or at a baseball game- make sure the people around you feel welcome and included. No one likes to feel left out at any age…right? (Vicki Pellicciotta Anzalone)
