The sweaty day...

Have you ever had an experience where other people believed in you more than you believed in yourself? 

 

Maybe it was a friend, a parent or a coach. Do you remember learning to ride a bike, it wasn’t easy at first, but the people around you supported you and guided you until you got it. 

 

As an adult have you had a situation where someone else had more confidence in your abilities than you did? 

 

For me it was a very sweaty day...

 

Let me tell you a bit about the lead up. It was back in the days of film photography so you didn’t get the instant gratification and you didn't know if you had the best shots.

Think about what character traits or habits you would like to work on in the next 30 days. Some suggestions might be generosity, kindness, patience, saying no, or making time for family. Write your focus somewhere where it will serve as a daily reminder such as the calendar, your diary, a journal, or even a post-it on your bathroom mirror.
