You are Wonderful
The following true story captured our heart. It happened several years ago in the Paris opera house. A famous singer had been contracted to sing, and ticket sales were booming. In fact, the night of the concert found the house packed and every ticket sold. The feeling of anticipation and excitement was in the air as the house manager took the stage and said, "Ladies and gentlemen, thank you for your enthusiastic support. I am afraid that due to illness, the man whom you've all come to hear will not be performing tonight. However, we have found a suitable substitute we hope will provide you with comparable entertainment." The crowd groaned in disappointment and failed to hear the announcer mention the stand-in's name. The environment turned from excitement to frustration.
The stand-in performer gave the performance everything he had. When he had finished, there was nothing but an uncomfortable silence. No one applauded. Suddenly, from the balcony, a little boy stood up and shouted, "Daddy, I think you are wonderful!" The crowd broke into thunderous applause.
We all need people in our Lives who are willing to stand up once in a while and say, "I think you are wonderful. "
Things To Remember
I find what I look for in people. If I look for God, I find God. If I look for bad qualities, I find them. I, in a sense, select what I expect, and I receive it.
A life without challenges would be like going to school without lessons to learn. Challenges come not to depress or get me down, but to master and to grow and to unfold thereby.
In the Father's wise and loving plan for me, no burden can fall upon me, no emergency can arise, no grief can overtake me, before I am given the grace and strength to meet them.
A rich, full life is not determined by outer circumstances and relationships. These can be contributory to it, but cannot be the source. I am happy or unhappy because of what I think and feel.
I can never lose anything that belongs to me, nor can I posses what is not really mine.
To never run from a problem: either it will chase me or I will run into another just like it, although it may have a different face or name.
To have no concern for tomorrow. Today is the yesterday over which I had concern.
To never bang on a closed door: Wait for it to open and then go through it.
A person who has come into my life has come either to teach me something, or to learn something from me.
Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life
Compassion will cure more sins than condemnation
Henry Ward Beecher
Competition brings out the best in products and the worst in people
Confidence and enthusiasm are the greatest sales procedures in any kind of ceremony
O. B. Smith
A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
The leader has to be practical and a realist yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
