Here's What All the Honking is About

It is April and spring is finally ariving. In its full colorful glory.
All the plants and bushes are showing off thier brilliant colors.

There,s Yellows, Greens, Reds, and Blues.

There just like the Personality colors we will be discussing this
Saturday Night. On the Teleseminar with Mentoring for Free.
Color to Success Call!

More on that in a moment, but first I have to tell You about the
Honking. I was out in my yard when I heard this loud Honking,
coming out of the south as I turned here is what I saw in the sky.

In the spring when you see Geese heading north, for home flying
along in the ‘V’ formation. You might be interested in knowing what
science has discovered about why they fly that way.

It has been learned that as each bird flaps its wings, it creates uplift
for the bird immediately following. By flying in a‘V’formation the
whole flock adds at least 71% greater flying range than if each bird
flew on its own.

Quite similar to people who are part of a team and share a common
direction to get where they are going quicker and easier,
Because they are travelling on the trust of one another and lift each
other up along the way.

Whenever a Goose falls out of formation,

It suddenly feels the drag and resistance of trying to go through it
alone and quickly gets back into formation to take advantage of the
power of the flock.

If we have as much sense as a Goose, we will stay in formation and
share information with those who are headed in the same way we
are going.

When the lead Goose gets tired, he rotates back in the wings and
another Goose takes over. It pays to share leadership and take
turns of doing the more difficult jobs.

The Geese honk from behind to encourage those up front to keep
their speed. Words of support and inspiration help energize those
on the front line, helping them to keep pace in spite of the day-
to-day pressures and fatigue.

It is important that our honking be encouraging.
Otherwise it’s just, well, Honking!

Finally when a goose gets sick or is wounded it falls out, two Geese
fall out of the formation and follow the injured one down to help
and protect him. They stay with him until he is either able to fly
or until he is dead, then they launch out with another formation to
catch up with their group.

When one of us is down, It’s up to the others to stand by us
In our time of trouble. If we have the sense of a Goose, we will stand
by each other when things get rough. We will stay in formation with
those heading where we want to go. The next time you see a
formation of Geese, remember their message that:

So as my contribution to the Mentoring for Free Team

It is only right that I pass this on to You.
We will be having our training call

What a great illustration. It takes a team to build a business.
I just got back from my daughter's softball game a while ago. They beat the number one team in the state. The difference - my daughter's team played like a team. Everyone knew exactly where to go in every situation. When someone needed back up, another player was there. When someone needed encouragement, another player chimed in.
It's great to be part of a team with proven success.
Good words.
