What was I thinking when I wrote this post?
Today after getting a comment about an action I put in place at the workplace, I felt down, I took it as it was a personal attack and started complaining and acting as I was a victim of the situation. Then when talking with the great Michel Rivard, he made me realize that I was seeing things from a perspective where I felt I didn’t have a choice, I was missing the point and acting far from my highest potential. It took him just 3 phrases to make me see that I was acting childish and losing a great opportunity to integrate that feedback into my initiative and make it better.
What have I learned about doing something for one another recently?
That quick intervention helped me a lot, in fact turned my day up and made it better, and I immediately saw the power of doing something for one another. Once I noticed the impact of Michel’s action on my behaviour, I thanked him and he said something like “I am doing what you did to me last week” and that was huge for me to hear.
That has made me wonder:
- How many times I could have used an intervention like this to change my view about a given act/action/behaviour?
- How much potential there is in given a hand one to another?
- How should I keep helping one another?
What if …..
- I take a step back and ask for feedback about the situation once I hear myself complaining about it.
- We use today’s context as the perfect opportunity to consciously help one another?
My invitation is to help one another and build greatness all around
Now that you know a little bit more about myself, I invite you to take a moment to look around, staying curious, being brave, spreading love to reflect about the following questions:
- How do you know that you are complaining about something without doing something constructive?
- See around and ask yourself, who could benefit if I offer my kind help?
- How does your life change when we help one another? What’s possible now that we are helping one another?
Stay at home, keep yourself safe, and remember that:
We are incredibly better together, today more than ever!
