I hope you enjoyed last week’s tip of the week about “radiating your inner light” to be more positive in your day amidst the current climate.
When I spoke to my wife about it, she mentioned that her team has a weekly motivation email that goes out on a Monday and is written by a different team member each week.
I thought this such a great idea for developing a positive mindset and getting to know how the team thinks. Funnily enough, it was her turn to send one out and I thought I would share it with you today.
When working in a team it is important to remember this lovely quote
“Individual commitment to a group effort: That is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” Vince Lombardi
So, my tip of the week this week is as follows. “Practice motivating others in your team.”
Send motivational messages to individuals and/or to the team.
Or as mentioned above, set a staff timetable to send out motivational quotes
Or share a tip of the week each Monday (you could just share my weekly tip if relevant, you can find previous tips under blogs on my website www.edgebarbados.com)
As promised here is the message my wife sent, it is perfectly topical, enjoy:
A diamond is merely a lump of coal that did well under pressure……………
A timely quote for all of us……
We are all busy navigating our daily challenges with a little extra pressure from a big project we are currently working on along with those extra obstacles that have been thrown our way by mother nature, …… the volcano in St Vincent or the World Covid pandemic, but we face these challenges head-on and each day our diamond grows a little bigger and shines a little more brightly.
So, if you hit any ‘tough’ times during the week and you are feeling the pressure……just remember:
We are all diamonds shining brightly, we just sometimes must blow off the dust to remind ourselves!!
Have a great week everyone and over to you for the next motivational quote.
