Refill your cup
“People often say that motivation doesn't last. Well, neither does bathing - that's why we recommend it daily.” ~ Zig Ziglar
Are you feeling motivated today? Are your people feeling motivated today? Does anyone need a refill?
Give people validation that they are respected and appreciated. Thank them for the things they do and the efforts they make. Let them know how happy you are to have them on your team. Share the vision of success toward which you are all working.
And if you are the person with flagging motivation, do something fun. Get outside. Reconnect with someone who inspired you or makes you feel like the best version of yourself. Do something good for others. Exercise or meditate. Play fetch with your dog. Get a good night’s sleep.
As leaders, we need to help keep our people motivated, but we can’t always count on someone else to do the same for us. Refill your own cup, so that you can be the best version of yourself for others.
