I’m sorry, what is your name?

Isn’t it fun when your day involves bumping into someone who naturally brings out your “best?”  These are people who leave you feeling better for having seen them; it is as if they super charged your batteries or something.  You immediately gain brilliance, raise your head a little higher, and you feel necessary in society.  Your new light then shines on others as you interact throughout the day.

What is their secret; how do they do that?  Ask them; they will tell you “they don’t know.”  And truly they don’t; their ability to find value in those around them comes naturally and with no effort.  They are individuals with their minds set solely on finding what they have that may be of need to others.

There is an easy way to know who these people are well before you have any interaction with them.  They possess the ability to treat all they meet, regardless of stature; the exact same way.  Whether it is a powerful political person, a high-ranking organizational leader, or the maid at the hotel; they are all the same.  No matter the role or the employment of any individual they are treated with dignity and admiration.

I have heard the term magnifiers used in business; these people are in fact multipliers.  The bring out the best in all of us and surround themselves with people who are better than themselves.  They leave all interactions better than when they arrived; unknowing and innocent to their ability.

Are you a multiplier?  Ask yourself a simple question: “Are there people in your life who assist you in someway that you don’t even know their names?”  These exchanges could be as simple as a single interaction with a clerk, taxi driver, or someone on an elevator.  Or as complex as the person who cleans your office, works at your regular coffee stop, or you see fairly frequently.

If you answer yes, you are a multiplier, you create goodness around yourself.  If it is no or not really, guess what?  It is okay because you can easily change.  Take these next few days and put your emotion toward others.  Before you think of yourself think of those you are interacting with.  What you will soon find is that your needs are met as you meet the needs of those around you.

My promise is you will never again find yourself unaware of how important every person, everyday, is in your life.  It is not happenstance that many meaningful people enter your life everyday; your paths are crossing for a reason, find out why.
