Alexia’s Legacy: Take Time for Appreciation and Recognition

She was tragically taken from us, but her legacy lives on.  Every few weeks we will share excerpts from the book.


Tonight I wrote a bunch of thank you cards for all the leaders and execs at McKesson that helped make the internship so memorable for me. I did a 30 minute work-out. I am writing my journal and am off to bed!




Great update for everyone! Thank you so much for this! Melissa has completed the hours and was having lunch with the director who can verify that last Friday so she should just need to turn in the form. I will double check though!



Lesson: Take time for appreciation and recognition.

We are often busy with the chaos of life and forget to take time to show people how much we appreciate their help and support. But it is important to take that time, not just for them but for ourselves. It makes us feel better to reflect on things we are grateful for and to share those feelings with other people. Successful leaders make time to show appreciation and recognition for the people who make a difference and who make things happen.

Opportunity: Think about how you can recognize and appreciate someone today.

My Passion is helping people become successful and happy. I have found that many people want to be successful but just don’t know how. More importantly, people want to be successful because they feel that reaching some success pinnacle will result in them becoming happy. The research and my experience has shown that just the opposite is the case. Success does not lead to happiness. Happiness leads to success.
