I had a wonderful surprise on my desk this morning, and it inspired this post. This book sat on my desk and inside was a little note telling me I was awesome. My smile stretched from ear to ear for two reasons. First of all I love the Kid President and what he stands for. Secondly, I smiled because someone took the time to tell me I was awesome, and that is a priceless gift.
We are often quick to let people know when something is not right or they have done something we don’t agree with. We are quick to point out mistakes or areas that need attention and growth, But do we look for the moments to tell people what they are doing right? Do we give more compliments than complaints? Do we work to build people up? Do we look for the moments to tell them they are awesome?
I challenge you today is to tell as many people as you can that they are awesome. Let them know they are appreciated. Let them know what they are doing right. Let them know they are a valuable part of the team. Be the model of meaningful positive energy, and you will find it is contagious. And that is simply AWESOME!
