ACCEPTANCE AND BELONGING - an easy gift to give

GIFT GIVING AND BUSINESS

A lot of you are probably familiar with Abraham Maslow's "Hierarchy of Needs." You've probably seen the triangle that depicts the needs of man, with the base representing basic needs such as food, clothing, sleep, shelter. The rest of the triangle, from the bottom up represents Safety, Employment; then Sense of Belonging, Acceptance; then RESPECT and finally, Self Actualization. If we can get all of these needs met, we are happy people indeed. The middle section of the triangle, the part that represents Belonging and Acceptance, is a gift we each can give to one another. Helping others realize they belong is a gift of acceptance that has no monetary cost to you or your business. One of our modern gurus, Deepak Chopra, said, "Practicing the Law of Giving is actually very simple. If you want joy, give joy to others; if you want love, learn to give love; if you want attention and appreciation, learn to give attention and appreciation." In a fast changing and integrated world, it's a good idea to help a new business or Chamber member fit in - "break the ice," and make them feel welcomed to our Chamber community. Have a good week.
