On "Becoming a Person of Influence" by John C. Maxwell

When you take a large activity (such as your dream) and break it down into smaller, more manageable parts (goals), you set yourself up for success, because you make what you want to accomplish obtainable. And each time you accomplish a small goal, you experience success. That's motivating!


Wishing you success throughout our journey as teachers and learners. Have a great week!
