Success without love? You wish.
By Jean Ricot DORMEUS
Have you been pursuing lasting success by applying mechanically some formula or technique? Or by working harder and harder? Have you pulled it off or do you see it coming? If the wild horse of success stubbornly resists your attempts to tame it, stop trying to produce fire without a spark. Use also the game changer of love.
Love speaks a universal language that anyone understands. A smile or a word of kindness will go to great lengths. A while ago, I was negotiating an accord with an astute Dominican Ambassador, known for his visceral opposition to the ideas I was defending. From the outset, I showed appreciation and respect. I also referred to his hereditary competence on the issues, because his father used to work on the same matters.
This attitude alone created a conducive environment that facilitated report and success where previous attempts had failed.
You must sincerely love the people around you at home, at the workplace or in the competition arena. Otherwise, your best efforts will hardly measure up to the task.
You must also develop love for what you are doing. Halfheartedness and frustrations like to complicate every assignment and derail your walk towards excellence.
Why does love work so nicely? Because it adds meaning to our success. Because our love recipients will surely reciprocate and we will end up receiving what we gave in the first place. Love changes our lives and transforms our communities. Give it a try in everything, you will be amazed at the results.
