Positive Affirmations: How a Sticky Note Can Make an Impact
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you decided to go outside of yourself and do something amazing? I had this experience while volunteering for a nonprofit. I found out how simply giving positive affirmations can make a big impact on others.
Do something special
I do not remember what it was that caused me to come up with this idea, but one morning I decided that instead of just coming into the office for a regular day, I would do something special. I decided to write positive affirmations on as many sticky notes as there were doors to the offices in the building. You can see where this is going. I got there early and only the secretary knew what I was doing. I was so worried I would get in trouble by doing this, but I stuck with my intuition and did it anyway.
On every door, I put a sticky note with something positive written on it. I was leaving early in the morning to go to another office, so I wasn’t there when everyone found the notes.
When I got back to the office I found out that everyone was talking about the notes on their doors and was wondering who put them there! Not everyone went to the office that day so there were some notes still on the doors. But most of the notes had been taken off and obviously read. The secretary told me how so many people were so happy and surprised to see the notes!
A small act makes a big difference
I was filled with so much pride knowing that I could make a big difference in the lives of everyone in the building through such a small act – even if it was just for one morning. Although this was a challenge for me I realized upon doing this that there is so much inside of me that has potential. So, what is it that is in you? What is the one thing that you should be doing, but aren’t? How can you make a positive impact on others?
