Monday Morning Motivation – Kind

(Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially)

Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement — along with a good cup of coffee! — to start the day.

Hopefully the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week.  Please feel free to forward the newsletter on to others that you think would benefit from the content.


In looking to my list from Mr. Ziglar today, I come across kind – talk about a fun concept to write about!

For me, when I hear “kind”, I immediately think about the people in my life that are always there to support me.  They have a kind word, a smile, a willingness to help, a capacity to make me feel better.

I can absolutely, 100% see why Ziglar includes this as a positive trait / a trait that he admires.  Kindness is at the heart of significance:

  • Remember that significance is defined as having a positive impact on the lives of others

Those who are kind ARE significant.

And that is what makes them stand out from the crowd.

That brings us to today’s question:

  • How could you be kind to a friend, a family member or a co-worker this week?

Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning and I wish you all the best for the week.


(Note:  Each week I publish “Monday Morning Motivation” in the hopes that one person will find a bit of inspiration and that inspiration will have a positive impact on their life.  My motivation comes from experiences, reading, sermons, and discussions.  For the next several months I’m going to be drawing from Zig Ziglar’s book “Over the Top”.  It’s a great source of inspiration and wisdom and I would be remiss if I didn’t give him credit up front for the motivation)
