Twenty Things We Should Say More Often (Part 14)

say 14

Today we are going to talk about #8 on our list of things we should say more often.

Hello, person I’ve never met before!  Here’s a high-five!

Sometimes we need to put ourselves out there to meet new people.  We don’t know how it will go and that can be scary.  Choose to put yourself out there anyway.  When you do, just go for it.  Be friendly, be funny, be energetic.  Even give them a high-five or a fist bump.  Most people will love your courage to be outgoing.  Sometimes you will meet someone who is put off by that, but if they are, you are best off finding that out right away.  That person who takes offense to your friendly greeting is probably not a person you want to be friends with anyway.

God commands us to love our brothers and sisters here on earth.  That includes family and friends.  It also includes strangers.  That means people that we do not know.  Be willing to put yourself out there because you never know when you will meet someone who could become one of your best friends.  And if you do, you want your first encounter with that person to be memorable so that years from now, you both can look back on how you met and smile and maybe even laugh.  Those are the moments that make life worth living.

Our assignment this week is to approach at least one stranger and start a conversation with them.  Get to know a little bit about them.  If you feel really brave, go ahead and give them a high-five.  People are not as scary as they might seem at first.  Putting yourself out there can really lead to some great things down the road.  Who knows, you may even end up getting a corn dog out of the deal someday.  That would definitely make it worth it because everyone loves corn dogs.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
