The Little Engine That Could…

What Optimism Brings to Your Life

An article that I read today on the recovering national job outlook made me reflect back to a beloved childhood book.  Who hasn’t read, The Little Engine That Could, by Watty Piper?

The mantra throughout the story is, “I think I can, I think I can.”   The story teaches the values of optimism, hard work, and determination.  The story is about a long train that must be pulled over a very high mountain.  After a number of larger engines declined to pull the train over the mountain, the “little engine” agreed to try.

The economy has taken a severe beating and will likely require a long recovery. Many economists are saying the economy may never recover to the levels we have known in the past.

“The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.”
