Source of personal accomplishment
I met Kirk several years ago and have been subscribing to his Thought 4 the Day (T4D). His email this week was worth re-posting in whole. He gets the credit!
So many of my greatest personal accomplishments in life were not preceded by me believing in myself but by someone I respected and trusted telling me that they knew I could do it. It was their sincere belief in me that gave me enough courage, faith and hope to take action. In the end, when the task I never would have attempted without their encouragement was complete they never seemed surprised, and they never praised me for, what to me was a great accomplishment. Instead they would in a matter of fact manner say something to the effect of, I knew you could do it. Their belief helped set me free, it helped to get me going and growing, and now that I also knew I could do it, I could never do less. Kirk Weisler
