    Hello Jim,

    This was a super simple one – something someone said to me:

    Several years ago, I was walking down the hall where I worked.  I was having an ‘average day’.  As I walked by one of the directors who was standing outside his office speaking with someone.  This was someone I had discussed business with a few times in the past, but I rarely saw him.  As I got closer to pass them he said, “Hello Sunshine”.   I smiled and said “hello” back as I kept on my walk.  The moment he said that I must have grown 2 inches taller!

    The ‘icing on the cake’:  A few days earlier I had said to myself, “I want to be sunshine”.   A little odd, I know, but but nevertheless, that’s what I had been thinking.  He SAW me!  That was so powerful to me that I will never forget that moment.  Every time I think of it it brightens my day!  I even include that story in my GL training – I demonstrate how my walk changed and everyone gets a kick out of it.  🙂  Be sunshine.

    I like that Judy.  Sometimes its hard to acknowledge the truth about ourselves, especially when we are being called out for a not so nice behavior.  This was another example of the power of acknowledgement!

    Hi Jim,

    I had the same challenge! It was a strange feeling. I kept starting to write and the words were not forthcoming.

    PS: I LOVE YOUR PODCASTS!!!

    This really struck me. I started to respond and had ‘writer’s block’. I think it overwhelmed me with how important and powerful this movement is. It’s like I know how awesome it is, and that is why I am so passionate about it…. But somehow what you wrote bulldozed me with its power. It made me check myself and ask, “am I really doing enough to change the world?” GL is the perfect opportunity to help others and help organizations. If I am involved in something that continues to give me goose bumps it must be a calling and a life purpose and therefor I must give it a higher priority.

    Providing People with the tools and encouragement to continually express gratefulness and acknowledgement lights a Passion within me and gives me Purpose. It sometimes seems slow-moving and with Persistence, little by little, more and more people are exposed to the Power. This Power changes lives. It moves both the giver and the receiver every time to a sense of well being and joy.

    The ‘movement’ is ALWAYS on my mind. I teach other topics and in every class I facilitate I weave in Grateful Leadership and advertise an upcoming classroom opportunity. Even when I introduce myself to leaders, I mention the power of Grateful Leadership training that’s available. lol. That’s the Persistence for me.

    I am Patiently waiting for this training to be released globally in our organization. On that day we will celebrate! 🙂

    You are truly a beautiful human being Judy. You are changing lives and I am so grateful you are in mine.

    This is what I often point out in the course:  as a result of the 5C’s, Contagious is the 6th C!  Like Judy I thank you for describing this phenomenon so powerfully.

    Amazing -the kinds of emotions we receive when we see others acknowledging others.  I have tears running down my cheeks right now from Judy’s SoundPancake video.  It reminds us of the POWER of acknowledgement.

    I will have to watch the over videos in the Media conversation a little while later… thanks so much for sharing!

    I love the idea of the business cards Roxanne.

    Kathy, I think we can never acknowledge too much.   You did the right thing because your heart was in the right place.  What is unfortunate is that the security guard probably gets yelled at all the time by agitated people.  If a person is so often treated poorly they may not recognize a true acknowledgement for with it is.  In his mind, he may have mistaken it for sarcasm.   If more people acknowledged him, he may soon receive it.  Thanks for taking the step.
