KUDOS – Discovering Fulfillment

Posted by Herman Najoli on May 21, 2009

A few days ago I was floored when someone sent an email to someone else to pass along some kudos for me. This is a rare word so I went home and developed a KUDOS formula for encouraging others. Here’s the KUDOS formula:

K – Keep your focus on finding acts worthy of encouragement in your people.

U – Underscore the vital necessity of a climate and culture of encouragement.

D – Discover the 101% principle (Find the 1 thing someone is good at and give 100% encouragement in this area.

O – Outline your expectations, knowing that people soar higher once encouraged.

S – Seek to encourage with a desire for the other person’s benefit, not your own.

Participating by Dreaming Big

Posted by Herman Najoli on May 4, 2009

Many times we stall in contributing to society because we “have no dream”. Is that really possible? Are there people who “have no dream”? I don’t think so. Think deeply. What’s your dream? What’s that one thing you absolutely believe you were born to do? What keeps you up at night and keeps you dreaming during the day? What’s your greatest desire in terms of accomplishments?

Each of us have been created with a desire for greatness. There is no human being who does not have the capability to dream big dreams. Greatness does not necessarily mean being rich and famous. Greatness is simply understanding what you were born to do and doing it to your utmost potential. All human beings have the potential to dream great dreams and achieve them. T.E. Lawrence, in Seven Pillars of Wisdom, said, “All men dream but not equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their mind, wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.” Don’t let your dreams become nightmares. Dream big. Your dream is key to you participating in the flow of life.
