Giving Thanks


People just love the holiday season.  To get into the spirit, some start playing Christmas music early and often.  Others start decorating right after Halloween.  It seems Thanksgiving is just one stop along the way; however, I think Thanksgiving deserves more attention.  In fact, people may be happier every day by simply giving thanks more often.

The sad fact is that most people feel underappreciated which contributes greatly to unhappiness.  When I teach people about motivation, recognition, and rewards, I ask my participants, "Who feels over-appreciated?" Only one person has ever raised her hand.  Pleasantly surprised, I asked her to share her experience.  She said that she used to work for a non-profit organization, making half of her fair-market salary, yet she loved working there because at the end of each day, the director stood at the door and shook everyone's hands as they left thanking them for their work that day.  For her, that simple yet sincere thank you was worth the missing half of her salary.

How do you give thanks to those you appreciate?  Don't wait for the holidays or other special occasions: start today, show gratitude by being sincere and specific.  Maybe someday you'll be the reason for someone to feel over-appreciated, and that's something to celebrate. 

What are you willing to die for?

On October 14, I watched in awe as Felix Baumgartner ascended to, and then jumped from, 24 miles above Earth.  His dreams were to skydive from the highest point ever, have the longest free fall (in time), and break the sound barrier. He successfully accomplished his first and last goals as the world watched.


We all have different risk tolerances and senses of adventure. Personally, I'd never consider doing a space jump, yet Baumgartner did.  Regardless of what you think is possible, if you have a dream that consumes every waking moment, go for it!  Chances are it is less risky than jumping from space, and he survived.  You will too.


"Sometimes you have to go really high to see how small you are," said Baumgartner, 43.
