Yesterday, while speaking to various teams at are team camp, I never fail to talk to them about the great power in the world -- the power they have to chose their attitude regardless of the circumstances. We talk about how we all have this ability and when we discover it and then nature it, we can accomplish amazing things.
I started my journey across that bridge many years ago when my assistant Eileen Beavers gave me a book for Christmas. When I saw the title, “The Greatest Story Ever Told,” I opened the book with great excitement, because I wanted to learn what it was about. But all I saw were blank pages. Inside was a note from Eileen that said, “John, your life is before you. Fill these pages with kind acts, good thoughts, and matters of your heart. Write a great story with your life.”
We really do have the power to write our own story.
