This week I want to talk about giving thanks. It isn’t thanksgiving, or a special reason to do this -although the holiday season is a great time to send a card.
Taking the time at the end of the year to think about all of the people who have helped you, is a great way to see that you haven’t had to do this all alone.
Sometimes we forget the small things that people do for us; whether they make an introduction, explain a new skill or lend an ear to listen to your concerns.
I have been blessed this week with thank you’s from some of the people I have mentored over the year. It means so much to me that they have taken the time to write and tell me about the successes they have had. It was this that gave me the idea for this week’s podcast.
In the podcast I talk about why it is important for you to give thanks to the people who have helped you, and I have set you a challenge start to thank those that have helped you.
Reminding people that they have touched your career and life in a positive way, helps to spread a bit of magic around. We often spend too much time focussing on the negatives when we build our careers, without taking a look to really see all of the positive help we have received during the year.
What has someone done to help you this year? Let me know about it in the comments below.
Remember to be thankful as 2016 draws to a close, and think of ways that you can help others in the coming year.
