by Jim Wolfson Reprinted with permission from http://jimwolfson.com/ The Elements of a Personal Growth Plan How to Set Your Life up for Change To be alive is to be growing and transforming.

Lessons I Learned from Nightfall

This One Leadership Skill Will Send Your Credibility Soaring

Alexander is a trooper, and knew that the pain in his mouth would eventually subside. But that first afternoon, he was extremely uncomfortable. Later that evening, around dinner time, the phone rang. It was his orthodontist, Dr. DeMaio. He was calling to see...
