Ripples #667: Your Team!
For our tribe of 30,134 busy people who share encouragement and gratitude.
If you wish to go quickly, go alone.
If you wish to go far, go together.
-African Proverb, submitted by Shelly at Oregon State University
There is no such thing as a “self-made” person.
We are made up of thousands of others.
Everyone who has ever done a kind deed for us,
or spoken one word of encouragement to us,
has entered into the make-up of our character
and of our thoughts, as well as our success.
-George Matthew Adams, submitted by Micole H. in Omaha, NE
Who is on your TEAM?
Which of your friends, family, and colleagues are you especially grateful to have in your life AND whom consistently have your back when necessary? Have you told them lately that you appreciate being able to count on them?
Since our very first issue back in 1999, the success of Ripples has relied on an evolving TEAM of remarkable people who contribute fantastic quotes, invite others to subscribe, and occasionally share feedback about how these Ripples matter. I hope that each of you recognize your valuable role in TEAM RIPPLES, even if it is to simply pause for 60 seconds every Monday and glance at the latest issue.
