Yesterday I spoke about how everybody appears happier, more cheerful and productive when the sun comes out and posed the question:
What would you do if you could, without fear or anxiety, let your inner sunshine out each and every day?
So today it was no surprise to me to hear the good old phrase “that Friday feeling” again we all know that one :
Thank God it’s Friday
Thank Crunchie it’s Friday
TFI Friday (as Chris Evans re-branded it more than a couple of years ago)
What is it that we are also excited about? What is it about Friday or realistically the weekend that we so look forward to?
Does everybody really hate their job that much that the weekend gives them such freedom, such empowerment , such an ability to be passionate, that’s all they long for all week? Constantly waiting for Friday to be freed to be the person they want to be.
Do you recognise this in yourself, or in your employees or your co-workers?
If you do take 5 minutes to explore that feeling, ask yourself the questions that I’ve listed above. What does that Friday feeling mean to you? Why do you long for it? And how much better would your life be if you have that much passion everything you did?
Learning to harness your Friday feeling and use it each and every day so that everything you do it with passion and commitment opens you up to so many more possibilities and opportunities. If you’re suddenly seen as the person in your office or the supplier with a passion and commitment that nobody else is showing you will shine through. Not only will you be recognised and rewarded but you yourself will be more content as you are seeing the joy in the things you’re doing.
I’m not saying this is easy, most people don’t even know it’s possible. Some people are able to do it on their own, others need support and help.
Now that you know it is possible, just think of the value that could be added to you or your business by simply asking for that help.
Enjoy your Friday Feeling and I hope you have the same one on Monday.
