Today’s challenge, ask yourself: Whose Pride Buttons can I make note of this week, and how can I mention it to let them know I respect what’s important to them?
“All successful people men and women are big dreamers. They imagine what their future could be, ideal in every respect, and then they work every day toward their distant vision, that goal or purpose.” Brian Tracy
We surround ourselves with Pride Buttons: pictures of loved ones, awards we’ve won, etc. Notice these. Ask: “What do you love most about your job?” These things drive us and get us up in the morning. Recognize Pride Buttons, and focus on them when you or others get frustrated or swamped. Remind me how I love the excitement of problem solving or the thrill of a challenge. Point to the pictures in my office to remind me why I do what I do.
