Founder Friday: The Power of Emotion
By Rachel Robinson, M.S. CCC-SLP
“PEOPLE WILL FORGET WHAT YOU SAID. PEOPLE WILL FORGET WHAT YOU DID. BUT PEOPLE WILL NEVER FORGET HOW YOU MADE THEM FEEL.”
As yesterday was the late Maya Angelou's birthday, it seems fitting to reflect on a quote that has always made an impression on me, especially given my work in the therapy industry.
Therapy is an interesting business.
In one aspect, it's a career. We clock in and we clock out.
In another aspect, it's an impact. We make emotional imprints on people’s lives every single day because of the action of the work.
Today, and all days, take a moment to realize that each smile you elicit is a physical manifestation of positivity that you are providing to that individual. You have a chance in every interaction to make someone feel happy or accomplished, empowered or proud.
So, I ask you, how many people will you make smile today?
