High Motivation Is
Haggai Prescription
Describing happiness as the
ability to maintain a high level
of motivation despite the
problems you face, Dr. Tom
Haggai challenged his
audience Friday night to
“Rejoice evermore.”
This is the advice that Paul
wrote in his two letters to the
despondent people of
Thessalonica, Dr. Haggai
said, whom he compared to
Americans today.
The popular High Point man
spoke at the annual Brevard
Jaycees Distinguished Service
Awards banquet Friday night
at Brevard College, attended
by 126 persons.
“He did not say be happy all
the time. You cannot be happy
all the time,” Dr. Haggai said.
If people were happy all the
time, there would not be the
great music, poetry and art
that was born of despair, he
In the face of terminal
illness of serious family
problems, “There is a way to
not lose your motivation,” Dr.
Haggai said.
“Paul tells you how. When
he gives you a toy, he gives
you the batteries and all the
screws. ‘In everything give
thanks. This is the will of God
through Christ Jesus.’
“You cannot be thankful
and depressed at the same
time,” he said. Unless, he
quipped, it was the man
watching as his mother-in-law
drove off the cliff in his new El
Dorado Cadillac.
