What is about people, that they are so stingy with praise???
I have been thinking of the office set up. To be honest, I used to think and feel so overwhelmed by it. Yes, we have all types of people in this world. Just got to live with and make the best of it. SO, I adjusted the mindset, changed the goalposts (rather than have someone else do it for me) and hooray, success. I have managed to leave work at the office and look forward to evenings with the family.
There is a funny thing that our local Indians say here and I cringe mentally at it, but I shall share it with you, “what to do, when you not well to do?!”
That make you smile? You know the feeling?
Alas, sadly, I identify as well.
Need the job, have to work, kids to raise, bonds to pay off, cats to feed, you know how it is?!
One thing is certain though, on closer scrutiny, I AM WELL TO DO. I have wealth in untold measures. So do you. What, you ask. is that?
That my blogging community and friends, is a generosity of spirit.
….and nobody says it better like the lovely little lady over on Lovelaney.
Meet Laney who “set out on a mission to fill my life with happiness, gratitude, and purpose. The last three years have been a real growing period for me, and have only motivated me more to continue changing my life – and help you change yours.”
Read on why Laney and I agree that praise goes a long way.
Laney advises “So this week, offer praise. Offer thanks. Offer gratitude. Tell your people you appreciate them and all they do for you, even if it’s something as small as unloading the dishwasher. You might just make their day.”
