10 Reasons I Learned to Admire Others
We all seek recognition for our work; we all yearn to be praised for our accomplishments. I often refer to our necessity to be “relevant” as a selfish act that usually gets us the opposite attention of what we ultimately want. One of the many lessons I have learned over the past few years is the ability to recognize unselfishly through the act of admiration. If your relevance overpowers your ability to be recognized you should read 10 Reasons I learned to Admire Others.
- I realized if I am constantly proving to others what I have done, I really didn’t make the impact I thought I did.
- Praising others for their accomplishments will naturally gravitate them to search for your own accomplishments.
- People who recognize others give power and courage to individuals to succeed which is ultimately a leader’s legacy.
- Although it’s very difficult to avoid, giving self-recognition is extremely off-putting and often difficult for others to provide feedback on this opportunity. I discovered this by paying attention to others who did the same thing and quickly realizing the effect it had on me.
- Admiring others shouldn’t be a way to manipulate others into simply admiring you in return. The best part of admiring others is the practice of truly seeing the value others bring to the World.
- The reputation of being a humble leader that recognizes others is a very attractive quality to employers and employees.
- The greatest way to influence others is to focus on their strengths, celebrate their wins, and praise them loudly for their accomplishments.
- Having a reputation for being selfish and not giving back will make others avoid both collaborating with you, as well as working for you.
- It may take a little longer, but if you truly accomplished something of significance, it will always find its way back to your name.
- Recognizing and admiring others is a very powerful gift to someone. Often times as a leader I have heard others reference one conversation with someone who believed in them; ultimately making one of the biggest differences in their life.
The main point I want to stress is that admiration when truly effective should be the most unselfish act we execute at a leadership level. It absolutely took practice and time before I was able to separate my personal gains from truly admiring others, but eventually it has become a part of my everyday activities to influence others.
