I had tears in my eyes,
As I was wiping my eyes,My wife walked in to my home office.
Why What happened?, She asked
I showed her an email that I just read. After reading she said
“You are lucky to have people conveying their gratitude after years”.
Yes I am lucky and those tears came with joy.
That email was from one of our ex employee whom we recruited right after his MS degree. A Mechanical Engineer turned DBA.
I taught him DBA just like I taught few hundred others at Infovision after joining us.
Email summary is: He became Vice President at a Big Bank,Now he leads a team of DBAs, owns a home , tesla and a thank you note with his family pic.
“Krishna Sir: Because of you I received green card and became a DBA. Thank you ”
It is not the wealth I accumulated in business makes me happy rather how I motivate/Inspire people around me.
When ever I receive such gratitude notes,My eyes will be filled with tears of joy. Those notes are my real wealth that I am accumulating.
For a second,close your eyes to remember who ever helped/Inspired you in the past.
Write a gratitude note.
it will make their day as well as yours.
Gratitude is one of the most powerful catalyst for happiness.
