I invite you to begin your New Year by watching this short “ted talk,” which was actually a presentation by Viktor Frankl, the 20th Century Austrian psychologist and more importantly, Holocaust survivor. He reminds us all that we have a responsibility to lift up, to inspire, and to encourage others.
Regardless of your circumstances, position, and station today, 2018 is a blank canvas waiting for you to create your picture. I hope each of us will use colors from the palettes of kindness, patience, inspiration, encouragement, and belief as we paint. Because when we encourage others to reach for their far edge of promise, we, in fact, become the best version of ourselves.
