Last week we defined hope as the belief that something extraordinary is possible. We saw how through the lens of hope these small seeds could become plants that produce dozens of tasty

But what if we left these seeds in our pocket or on the kitchen counter. Under those conditions, our hope for tomatoes is futile. Hope thrives under the right conditions.

The mission of Top 20 Training is not to develop tomatoes, but to develop people. Over the years we have paid close attention to the right conditions in a culture that yields human development. Over the next few weeks we will identify four of those conditions.

The first, and possibly most important, is helping others succeed. Martin Luther King said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?’”

When we live or work in a culture where we help others succeed and others help us succeed, hope thrives, human potential flourishes, and something extraordinary is possible.

Be intentional this week to enhance hope by helping someone succeed and establishing this condition as Job 1 in your culture.

From our Top 20 team…Kevin Brennan, Willow Sweeney, and Tom Cody…who create hope by helping each other succeed.
