Fulfillment during the Holiday Season
Your inspirational quote for this
season of Thanksgiving and joyous celebration is:
“Imagine life as a game in which you
are juggling five balls in the air. You name them –
work, family, health, friends and spirit and you’re
keeping all these in the air.

electronic communication devices, no shopping malls, no
electronic games and television, etc.)
would I write in a holiday greeting card to myself
explaining the top five things that I like about myself?
If you were to act on your
answers, what would that do to your fulfillment during this
season of Thanksgiving and joyous celebration? Congratulations, you
have taken the first step to deriving results from
