Happy New Year
Happy Year of the Fire Rooster
from Cynthia Brian
Having grown up on a farm raising chickens and selling the eggs to finance my university education, I have great respect and admiration for the good-looking, courageous roosters and their loyal, family oriented girls. I know 2017 is going to be a terrific year for all of us as we work together to build a better world through bravery, passion, and boldness. At Be the Star You Are!®, we strive to be role models of encouragement, energy, and enthusiasm for living. You, too, can be an example of excellence with a little help from Karen Kitchel’s article below.
We invite you to collaborate with us this year.

The Power of Example
by Karen Kitchel
We often don't realize the power we have simply by being a good example to others with our words and actions. We may think a lot of good thoughts about others, but don't always take a moment to express them. Need some ideas?
* Tell a child who is waiting in line "I like your smile"
* Make someone's day by simply saying "Beautiful dress or nice shirt"
* Ask your waitperson at a restaurant to tell the cook "I really enjoyed the ___________"
* Tell someone "That color looks good on you"
* While at the gym, reinforce someone who's working out "Wish I could do what you do"
* Send a reminder to a friend who lost someone "Thinking of you because you are special to me"
You will never know how you may have inspired someone to pass on compliments to others all because of the power of your example.
