IF ONLY HE WAS ENCOURAGED!
BASIC SCRIPTURES: GENESIS 40:1- 23; 1 THESSALONIANS 5:11
One of the most hardened and notorious armed robbers in England, Mr. Daily Star, said that when he was in high school, his teacher called him to stand and read a passage in front of the class. He was a poor reader and the harder he tried, the more he failed. Then one day while in class, there was general laughter because he could not read, as usual. In the middle of the laughter, the young Daily Star exploded in great anger and with bloodshot eyes and clenched fists shouted as he left the class, “one day you will fear me! You will hate me, but this will be the last time you will laugh at me!” He bolted out and thereafter shook Britain in great fear till he was arrested. What went wrong? What’s the lesson? If he was just encouraged a little, he would probably have become one of the greatest stars and responsible citizens of Britain. Please encourage those you meet in life to pursue their dreams. In particular, encourage those that have failed or made mistakes. Never laugh at them or dwell in the castle of condemnation. Who does not make mistakes? Help others to fulfill their goals! Be a source of success for someone, whether children, pastors, business people; put courage into someone. That is encouragement and as you scatter encouragement into other people’s lives and ministries, you will never lack that 13-letter word: ENCOURAGEMENT! When you help interpret other people’s dreams, then yours will manifest. Joseph cared! (Vs. 6 of today’s first basic scripture). Joseph interpreted their dreams (vs. 12), yet his dream was in a limbo (vs. 23). But later, the God of harvest called JEHOVAH EBENEZER showed up (Genesis 41:1-37) and Joseph’s 17 year-old dream manifested. Go and do likewise! Declare 1 Thess. 5:11 many times as led today. Eddie Cantor said, “When I see the “most wanted list” of the police, I always have this thought: If we had made them feel wanted earlier, they wouldn’t be wanted now.” Make someone feel wanted!

In a fast-changing world, where the extraction of natural resources is key to development, whilst also creating environmental and social disasters, understanding how landscapes, people and politics are shaped by extraction is crucial.*BR**BR*Looking at resource extraction in numerous locations at different stages of development, including North, West and South Africa, India, Kazakhstan and Australia, a broad picture is created, covering coal, natural-gas, gold and cement mining, from corporate to 'artisanal' extraction, from the large to the small scale. The chapters answer the questions: What is ideological about resource extraction? How does extraction transform the physical landscape?

The new edition of the bestselling employee development classic includes advice on talent retention in the gig economy, and a new chapter on creating a career development culture in your organization.
Study after study confirms that career development is the single most powerful tool managers have for driving retention, engagement, productivity, and results. But most managers feel like they just don't have time for more meetings.

Beverly Kaye and Julie Winkle Giulioni identify three broad types of conversations that will increase employees' awareness of their strengths, weaknesses, and interests; point out where their organization and their industry are headed; and help them pull all of that together to design their personalized career plans. And the new chapter includes an assessment so you can measure how well your current culture supports employee development—and how to improve it.
