Appreciation at work. Now, who doesn’t like that? It’s one of the things that motivates us to keep going.
Wouldn’t it be great to walk into work every day and everywhere you went, people are saying “hey, great job,” “way to go,” “you’re the best,” “we’re so lucky to have you,” “keep up the great work”.
Can you imagine? What would that be like?
It would be weird. And then it would be awesome for a while (assuming you believed them). And then, eventually, it wouldn’t be enough anymore. It would become white noise. You would need more.
It’s actually kinda like an addiction. You need more and more reminders you’re great to actually BE GREAT. The biggest problem with this addiction is you can’t control when you get your ‘next hit’.
The only way to break the appreciation addiction is to get off the junk. The junk, in this case, is the reliance on other people to confirm your greatness…
I mean, it’s nice when it happens. But frankly, you need consistent appreciation you can control. And that comes from you.
The trick is how do you go from self-doubt to self-appreciation? I mean, if it were easy, then everyone would do it, right? So ya… it’s not easy, but it is simple. You might believe that appreciating yourself is impossibly hard work, but believe me… it’s way easier than waiting around for someone else to notice how awesome you are.
Plus, once it clicks… you’ll be off ‘the junk’ for good. And that’s a freedom worth fighting for.
In this episode, you’ll learn why appreciation is so important, how it impacts your performance and how to get more of it for yourself.
