The Power of Acknowledgement

April 13, 2011

Isn’t it exciting and warming when others want to acknowledge you?   It is affirming and motivating and reassuring.  When we are acknowledged, it boosts our confidence and our attitudes.  Scientists and doctors are even confirming that it strengthens our immune systems!  It most certainly can improve performance.  With all of that why don’t we acknowledge one another more? 

We often underestimate the benefit it offers yet, acknowledgement, like love and kindness, only multiplies as you give it away.  While some may abuse it, the one who truly loses is the abuser.  Take a moment to make someone’s day and you will discover your day is a little brighter.   You can revisit the good feelings it gives you too. 

So do yourself a favor and let someone know what you appreciate about them.  Acknowledge your family, your team, your friend, your partner, your neighbor, co-worker or service provider.  You just may get something started that returns great dividends to you.  Thank you for taking the time to make a difference.

Succeeding Together

November 16, 2010

“To team up with people who have expertise in areas you do not gives you immediate access to wisdom, knowledge, experience and even power beyond your present scope.  If you understand and appreciate others you will find people looking for ways to help you.  Operate in a spirit of reciprocity and people will flock to your door to be of assistance.”
