Our Weekly Message for September 5, 2001

Hello there friends,

Hope that first football game and halftime was successful and the extra long weekend brought rest and relaxation. Don't forget if you need an extra routine for pep rally or halftime to resource our 200+ routine video kits.

Here is a thought for today that reminds us to never wait to share something special with others:

Why do we wait till a person's gone 
Before we tell her worth?
Why do we wait, why not tell her now
She's the finest person on earth?
Why do we wait till a person's gone
To send her flowers galore,
When a single rose would have meant so much
If we'd taken it to her door?
Why do we wait till he cannot hear
The good things that we might say?
Why put it off, why not tell her now
And share in her joy today?
Of course we're busy, that's our excuse,
But why, oh why do we wait
To tell a person our love for them
Until it becomes too late?

I am thrilled that my high school team, the Haltom Highsteppers, will be celebrating our 35th anniversary this year with a mass performance of current and former team members at the homecoming game. If you are planning a reunion or have some great ideas to share with others that are looking ahead to a special year, please send them to me. I will be compiling these ideas into an article for our Educational Support Page for others to resource, too! By the way, hats off to my former director who served as director of the Highsteppers for 19 years.....Dorothy Mize! She was the ultimate role model!

Below are some "vitamins for the mind" from Jim Rohn's weekly newsletter. It is on the power of generosity, giving and sharing. We can all learn something special from these words. 

Have a wonderful week and, as always, please keep in touch!

Giving, Sharing, Generosity

It's best to start the discipline of generosity when the amounts are small. It's easy to give ten cents out of a dollar; it's a little harder to give a hundred thousand out of a million.

Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process. Nothing teaches character better than generosity.

Here's what is exciting about sharing ideas with others: If you share a new idea with ten people, they get to hear it once and you get to hear it ten times.

Sharing makes you bigger than you are. The more you pour out, the more life will be able to pour in.

Somebody says, "Well, I can't be concerned about other people. About the best I can do is to take care of myself." Well, then you will always be poor.

What you give becomes an investment that will return to you multiplied at some point in the future.

When somebody shares, everybody wins. The amount you give isn't important. What matters is what that amount represents in terms of your life.

Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.
