The other day I was “all about me.”
I was challenged by work; all I could think of was me, me, me.
And it did not feel good.
This soon became a “poor me” victim story.
What does science tell us about how to get out of negative?
Go find someone to help. This moves you out of negative, depressed, sad – quickly.
Right now – think about someone who you could help.
Usually, the first person who comes to mind works for me.
Call them – right now. Commit to 5 minutes with them. Make it ALL about them.
Listen, encourage, compliment; do some act of kindness. Serve a team mate.
Ask, “If I were in their shoes, what would I appreciate?”
And then go do it.
Call them, text them, stop by and help them – socially distanced of course.
When you help someone else YOU benefit.
You get out of your own way and feel better because you made a difference.
You get the idea.
It is all about connection, helping someone else = contributing, serving.
Get out of your own way.
Go out there and help someone.
