“We carry our weather around with us.”
What a wonderful encouragement from Stephen Covey. No matter if our day seems cloudy or rainy, either from the outside weather or from tough news or a challenging day, we determine our weather.
We establish the climate outlook of our minds, conversations… We shape the weather pattern of our communications; we forecast the rain, sun or clouds of our expectations. We are in charge of our own weather, and our weather determines our hopes for the future.
Thank you, Stephen, for your life devoted to one of encouragement and positivity.
