Wouldn’t it be nice to have a marching band or a cheerleading squad following us around to encourage us when we’re down?

It sure would make getting out of bed easier. 

The elevators might get a little crowded, though. 

We do have a little cheerleader inside ourselves, though.

They’re not very loud, at least not at first, but they sure have some important things to say.

They often get drowned out by the miserable, defeatist within us. Or the insatiable ambition.

But it’s important to give them a run out every so often. We must be our own cheerleaders.

Celebrate the little wins.

Celebrate the big ones.

Keep a folder full of copies of the ‘nice things people say about you.’

And read it often.

It’s a big one!
