Monday Morning Motivation – Seasons

(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.


We’re in the middle of one of the hottest, nastiest seasons here in the Midwest – right after the 4th of July.  And yet this weekend it was absolutely gorgeous!  However, those of you that are familiar with this part of country know that the season can raise its ugly head with scorching heat waves or nasty storms.  That’s the way each of the seasons work – things can be going great and quickly turn nasty.  Or things can be going nasty and quickly turn great.

Every season has its good and its bads.  And both of them are temporary.  Both of them will pass.

The important thing to remember is that through the good seasons of life and the bad seasons of life there are lessons to be learned and opportunities to grow.  Every season has its purpose – even though you wonder what that might be when you’re in the middle of the heat or the middle of the storm!

Interestingly after we pass through either ae good or bad season, it’s not the “weather” we remember.  It’s the lessons we learned and the growth we undertake.  That’s why it is so critical to never stop learning, never stop growing, and never stop living through the good and bad.   If we learn, grow, and live through both the good and the bad, we’ll find that we are normally much happier with our lives

That brings us to this week’s question:

  • Are you finding a way to learn new things, grow as an individual, and live life fully in this season of your life?

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