Another thought that Maxwell brings out in his book, Today Matters, is that we need to value the people we come in contact with. We should seek to encourage others all day long. We can do this by helping them, looking for the best in them, and trying to bring out their positive qualities.
"You cannot have a bad attitude and encourage others at the same time," Maxwell states (pg 49). If you are looking to encourage others, it will sweeten your attitude and brighten your day. Harboring negative thoughts about others will only make your day bitter. Do you want your day to be bitter or better? The choice is all yours. You set the tone by your attitude, and helping others, encouraging others will always bring about a better day.
Today - seek how you can encourage those around you, and then see what kind of good day you have.
