THINK BIG! TAKE CHANCES!
Like the Little Engine that Could, Walt Disney, Martin Luther King, Jr, and Moses - will you dare to Rise Above the Ordinary?
In the story of THE LITTLE ENGINE THAT COULD, the huge mountain was exhausting for the Little Engine who volunteered to pull a large train. Even so, that determined Little Engine kept puffing, "I - think - I - can, I - think - I - can." Finally, the Little Engine reached the top of the mountain and as it began to go down the other side, that Little Engine began to joyfully say, "I thought I could, I thought I could, I thought I could!" What seemed to be impossible, became a reality for The Little Engine that Could.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. -
· Was arrested upwards of 20 times.
· His home was bombed.
· Was assaulted at least 4 times.
· But at the same time...
· He emerged as a great black leader of the world.
WALT DISNEY -
· Grew up poor
· His first company called Laugh-O-Grams went bankrupt.
· Moved to Hollywood with only $20.00 in his pocket.
· Produced Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs during the great Depression.
· Had a DREAM
· Became a legend
MOSES left the comforts of Egypt to lead the Israelites out of 430 years of Bondage. He rose above the ordinary role of luxury living as the adopted son of Pharaoh's daughter to a life of unknown adventure and notoriety among his people as he followed God's plan. Moses become a hero of the faith because he had the audacity to Rise Above the Ordinary.
Will you dare to ... RISE ABOVE THE ORDINARY?

ACTIVITIES FOR TEAM BUILDING
1) Listen up!
Want to improve your team’s listening and comprehension skills? Listen up is a great team-building activity that does exactly that. First, pair up participants and give them prepared index cards.
One team member reads the prompt on his/her card and is asked to speak on the topic for the next 3-5 minutes.
The partner is then supposed to recap their talk in one minute. In the next round, you can reverse their roles.
Improv takes a fun approach to team building as it ends up being an entertaining and hilarious event that team members can enjoy together.
Have your own “Who’s line is it anyway” and break the ice with a pinch of laughter!
