“For success, attitude is equally as important as ability.”

Shabbat Shalom!

What is success? A full room of “sisters” at a membership event? Everyone that has a part in your sisterhood Shabbat being on time for services? Having a speaker and 10 women attend? Women signing up to attend your first Rosh Chodesh gathering? Increasing your membership from the previous year? Breaking even on your a fundraising project? Meeting your Torah Fund goal early in the campaign? Welcoming a new member to your sisterhood? Having a list of volunteers to help with the Kiddush?

The response, is YES….each one can be a success! What? Each one is a success?? Absolutely….because your attitude is what makes any or all of these scenarios a success. Being successful does not mean having a full room, though it is nice. However, being successful is touching women, one by one. Being thankful for each women that takes the time to participate, attend and volunteer. Being successful is putting forth the effort with the best attitude you can. And, with a great attitude, each and every scenario will be successful…..for regardless if you have two, twenty or two hundred…each woman is important to the future of your sisterhood.

So…keep mindful of your attitude..and let’s make it a good one!

Wishing each of you a meaningful, peaceful and wonderful Shabbat!
