Monday Motivation

.....A DAY LATE, BUT IT STILL FEELS LIKE MONDAY TO ME!!!

Encouragement

"Improving yourself is the best way to help your team. Successful people set themselves apart because they initiate the improvement others need. When you get better, those around you benefit. Excellence has the potential to spread in the same way that mediocrity does. The positives or negatives of a group always begin with one. When you get better, so will others."

- John Maxwell, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth: Live Them and Reach Your Potential

As the school year progresses, one of two things happen: complacency or growth. I know for myself I needed the advice from this quote by Maxwell to challenge me to continue to improve as the school year progresses. It's hard to believe that a quarter of the school year is gone.....We are doing AMAZING things! We have an incredibly dedicated and hardworking staff, BUT let's not stop here! LET'S KEEP GOING!!! That desire for growth and improvement is contagious and, as Maxwell says, so is mediocrity. I hope that each one of you challenge me to push myself to be better and I hope I can do the same for you! Have a great week!
