It does make me think though. How can I use encouragement today, tomorrow, next week to bring out the best in someone? What can I say or do to make them shine? What role can I play in someone else's success? I've been reminded today that in helping people shine in what they do, I also shine. If they succeed, I succeed even more so. Helping someone else achieve their goals has greater impact than me doing it for them, and encourages them to do the same for others.
I hope I can retain this feeling that I have right now and take it into tomorrow and next week. If you're part of my daily life I give you permission to check in on me in a week's time and ask me how I have helped someone else to shine.
