These days I’ve been reading a lot about businesses, markets, leadership, and different topics related with the corporate world and entrepreneurship. Causally (from the law of cause and effect), I’ve stumbled upon several very interesting articles. Particularly one inviting to focus on both personal and entrepreneurial values rather than focusing on the economic growth and sales goals.
It refers to a revolution in terms of branding and clearly defined goals based on personal and business principles, team work, and motivation. And talking about motivation I remembered that I was trying recently to apply the principles of leadership to motivate the team supporting the project I manage. And without complicating things in elaborated motivational methods I simply shared with them how happy the client is with our results and I confirmed first-hand the power of giving thanks to the team for the effort: The outcome of that was better than what I could expect and I could feel the energy of hope, the spark plug of giving more just lighted up in all and each of us.
The second lesson I had about giving thanks I learned it from my children. After much hammering on them about being grateful, Mrs. Fridaylover and I were pleasantly surprised every time the children were giving thanks. Now it is very common to hear them say, “Dad, Mum, thanks for breakfast.” “Mum, thanks for buying me the shoes I wanted”. When we hear this sincere thank we feel even more motivated to do things for them and please them.
Somehow I think that the universe is also more motivated when we show our gratitude. There is power in giving thanks for all we have. That power, that some call good luck, is the key that opens the doors of prosperity and abundance. When we thank the universe, the universal energy, God or whatever you want to call that higher vibration that we all, consciously or unconsciously have felt, we are given more, because that inner power we all carry within as creators of our reality unleashes.
Today, I would really like to thank in this virtual space that allows me to connect with all and each of you and to share a thought and a subtle vibration of love and good feelings in one instant. Thank you very much from my heart!
