I’m considering doing a once per week post on three great things I’ve read during the week. Just considering it. Here are three for this week.
Why You Should Trust People First is a terrific post on why you should take that risk and speak up, ask, be vulnerable, greet, welcome, help that other person. In general, it is so worth it. Highly recommended.
Add Value To One Person’s Life Per Day is another great post suggesting that every single day, we need to find someone to help. Your help of that person will further help and compound as they likely then go on and do something good for someone else. Just get into the habit. Every single day.
You might be thinking that adding value to one person’s life is not enough of an impact. I once thought that too.
Until I realized that adding value is contagious.
When you do it once, the person you help passes it on. The second part happens in secret, though.
“You don’t see the significance of the value you’ve given to someone because the person you helped does it without thinking”
It’s natural that when we’ve seen the power of adding value to one person’s life, we want to pass it on. We collectively end up mimicking the behavior and just forget to label it as “I helped add value to one person today.”
Adding value to a persons life is contagious. Helping people is contagious too.Tim Denning
The Simple Power of Showing Up is a great reminder that just showing up and just being consistent makes all the difference in achieving one’s goals.
It’s time that people start realizing you can’t be the noun without doing the verb.The Simple Power of Showing Up
You can’t be a writer, if you don’t write.
You can’t be a cook, if you never cook.
You can’t be an athlete, if you never train.
In what areas of your life do you call yourself the noun without doing the verb? It’s time to get consistent.
