Good morning!  

I love “I CAN” people. Much of my business success and personal contentment rests in forming a network of stable and consistent “I CAN” colleagues and friends. When we associate with people who inspire and encourage we catapult ourselves forward. Likewise, when we associate with people who doubt and discourage we quickly stall or move backward.
I have carefully chosen my close friends and my employees, each of whom reflects the I CAN attitude. We also have the I CAN attitude in our home. When I travel or go out for a day of shopping or errands I am often astounded by the amount of negativity and discouragement in the world. I wonder why people would choose to spend time in such a place when they could create positive and encouraging surroundings over time. It certainly doesn’t happen overnight. We all have our share of negative people that we have to deal with. We may also treat ourselves negatively. But as adult women, we also have the right to shape our future by proactively choosing who we spend our time with.
This beautiful quote is so powerful because it reminds us how important our words of encouragement can be to one another. It is our encouragement that create strength and positive action.
Your Turn: Who do you need to give encouragement to today? Who can you help be strong through positive words? Likewise, who encourages you? What can you do to spend more time with those people? Who discourages you? What steps can you take to spend less time with those who doubt and discourage?
Your Affirmation: “Each day I encourage and support those around me through word and action.”
