We Rise By Lifting Others

I just love this quote from Robert Ingersoll, I just had to post a quick update about it!

We rise by lifting others — Robert Ingersoll

I’ve always felt this and now I want to get it out to everyone looking to be better or to take a step up in your company, your career, your family, or education.

True joy comes from investing in others and seeing the positive results that come. And the best part is as you help others around you take a step towards something better, you rise too!

From a practical standpoint it’s true, if you want to get to the place of success you’ve got to put in lots of hard work and you have to be determined to never give up. But, I know without a doubt I would not be where I am today without the encouragement and help from others that were ahead of me and I am so thankful for those who believed in me. That’s not to say I didn’t have critics in my life, (because there were plenty), but I chose to listen to those who wanted to see me succeed.

So here’s a question for you. If you are already thriving where you are and happy with who you are; are you investing in anyone around you? Who are you lifting today? We were made to encourage one another —to build each other up. We are not here to tear each other down or to minimize one another. Think about that for a second, how far has that negativity gotten you? Right?!

Stop listening to your critics. Start seeing what is possible. I hope this encourages you today!! And more than that, I hope you take some time today to encourage those who have been put into your life! 

It’s time to rise.

The definition of success can vary from one person to another, but the common denominator is how to focus on the goal you’re wanting to achieve, and how do you keep that mindset. We can often get lost in the why, […]

Start Right Where You Are

You are worthy how you are. Your uniqueness is actually vital to your life’s mission. If you change you, you might miss your calling. No one was intended to become someone else in order to find their purpose. It’s time to step into the adventure you were made for!!  If you’ve always wanted to work […]

We Are Thankful

I was asked today, “What’s one thing you’re thankful for?”  I was on a live call, so there was no time for hesitation.  I immediately said, “I’m thankful for where we are today!” Let me elaborate.  Yesterday was one of those days where in the midst of the chaos, I was able to stop for […]
