After speaking at a business conference someone asked me how they could make their life more meaningful and fulfilling and the idea of life enrichment came to me. It seems almost everyone, once they find out that I speak professionally, always ask me, "What do you speak about?" When I boil everything down, whether it's on Gourmet Living or Sales Leadership the topics end up covering how one's life can be made better. My goal after every program is to increase the effectiveness of their personal lives and their professional success.
I realized many years ago that while we were impacting the lives of many people professionally, as they grew, they also began to experience a more satisfying personal life. One of the points I discuss often is the need for each of us to impact the lives of others, and the more we work to positively impact the lives of others, the more our life will be blessed.
It may be a simple phone call or email that reaches out to say you care or asking how you can assist someone can make the difference in someone's day-or even their life!
As you plan your 2014 goals I encourage you to enrich other people's lives each week
- Seek out a person who needs a lift, give them an idea, or simply share that you care.
- Volunteer in your local community to help others who are less fortunate.
- Project a positive, fun attitude to the people you interact with during your day.
The phrase "attitude of gratitude" seems to ring out to me-enrich your life by being a better person.
Let me know what you do now or plan to do to make this world a better place.
