Start with You – the power to change everything

Every achievement ever made started with one single person. Every motion starts with one person deciding to move forward. You got a lot of power to change the world around you and I want to explain how it works. It is actually quite simple. All we need to know is some basics. When it comes to changing the world (or your world) it can just as well start with you. Are you feeling down, does your job suck? Is your personal life chaos? To clean up the mess, start with you.

The Power of One

Fact: You have the power to change and influence other people. Bad news, this does not make you a superhero. It is just basic psychology. If two people interact they will influence each other in some way or another.

Make a Decision

It is your choice to be great. There is no reason for you to sit still, even if the rest of the company is. What does your dream job look like? Do you know how to amaze your customers and your fellow employees? If you radiate with positive energy, positive things will start happening to you.

“Whatever comes our way, whatever battle we have raging inside us, we always have a choice. My friend Harry taught me that. He chose to be the best of himself. It’s the choices that make us who we are, and we could always choose to do what’s right.” – Spiderman

Your energy is like a bouncing ball against the wall

If you shoot out a pounding negative ball into your environment your will achieve one of two;

1) You will influence someone else in a negative way, making their day darker.

2) You will get the ball right back in your face and people will think negative thoughts about you.

Think about your career in the long run, you want to keep those positive balls bouncing.

So what will happen when you are radiating with positive energy and comments?

  1. People will be happy around you

  2. You will surround yourself with happy people

  3. People will like being around you

  4. People will like you

  5. People will smile around you, and make you happy in return.

How You Can Influence Results

Take a good look at the picture below. What team do you think produce the best results? At what team do the employees have more fun? What team has the most experienced employees? What team do you want to work for?

Negative and Positive

Now ask yourself:

What skills are important in Team Positive Energy?

How can you contribute to creating this team?

Think about all your interactions during the day, how many has a negative message or tone? How many positive? Your job is to reduce the number of negative and increase the number of positive.

The Power of Many

As you influence the people around you, and teach them this philosophy you will after a while experience the power of many. Now imagine these two teams being a part of the same company. Your job as a team is to influence the other teams. How should you interact with other departments at work? How should you greet someone visiting your department to spread the power of positivity?

In the same way as you will influence other, your team will also influence other people only this time in a larger scale. Now imagine that this spreads around the entire company. Do you think this will influence the customer service? Do you think you will get more satisfied customers? Do you think this can influence the company’s’ result?

You should feel obligated to do your best, to think in this way no matter where you work. If you are dissatisfied with your salary you work at Team Negative Energy. If you think your equipment is old you work at Team Negative Energy. As long as you work for Team Negative Energy it will take longer before the company can pay better, before the company can upgrade equipment. You are after all hired to get results. And when your day is over, it is very nice to know that you are contributing to Team Positive Energy. And if everything else fails, you will get a good resume and get hired at another Positive Inc. Either way, you win.

I have one last question for you? “Every achievement ever made started with one single person.” – do you agree?
