Good Thursday Morning, Friends! My Soul Intention: Making an effort shows you care. Society tells us that looks make the person, but looks only get one foot in the door, and they won’t get you to the door if you don’t make an effort. The energy that exudes from someone making an effort is contagious. It doesn’t matter where you make an effort, but the fact that you do is important in every area of life. Marriages die without effort from both partners. Children grow up neglected if neither parent makes an effort. You’ll flunk out of school if you don’t make an effort, and the majority of companies hiring are looking for effort on the part of the candidates they hire. Your boss, partner, child and friends can withstand many things, but when you stop putting an effort into what you’re doing for them or with them, they quickly lose confidence and trust in you. It’s not only about showing up; you need to put forth effort to succeed.
