Cast your mind back to the months or weeks preceding the naija bloggers’ awards.
There was a boom in blogville. New blogs came up. I got to meet lots of bloggers. I made friends, networked, read quality, hilarious and life changing posts. I was motivated. It was a great period.
I had just started blogging, but I could feel the warmth, the energy, the family, the motivation…
The success of blogville will always have a connection to those awards (at least in my mind).
As humans, we expect rewards for our acts or services. These rewards could come in different forms.
Reward is a motivator. Reward reinforces. It strengthens. It approves. It is a honour. We all need it even if you don’t acknowledge the fact that you need it.
Truth is, reward is a good thing. It is very natural to need rewards. It keeps us going.
Reward comes in different forms. It doesn’t have to be huge. It’s just:
A little “thank you“. A little hug. A little kiss. A little apology– “I’m sorry“. A warm handshake or holding of hands.
A little bonus. A little extra. A little “checking up on you“. A little donation. A beautifully crafted SMS. A quick “flashing“.
A little scolding. A little explanation. A little mentoring and guidance. A little treat. A little acknowledgment.
An authentic smile. A little acceptance. And the rewards list go on…
…and you’d have changed a generation… and you’d have injected energy into humanity… and you’d have saved a life!!
Reward others. Be rewarded.
Have a great week 😀
