I love thee.
These three words can change a person’s life. Too often, we only consider love in the context of our closest or most intimate relationships. But what about our other connections? Imagine what the phrase can do for the people who you work with.
Consider the following expressions of love and think about how you can put more love into all of your relationships…
How do I love thee?
I love thee…. without limits. The more I learn to love and appreciate what you do, the more improvement I will see in our relationship. There will be a deeper connection.
I love thee…. thru hard times. When business is slow and we are not reaching our goals, I will stand by you. In the end, love will fill us up and make us glad we have each other.
I love thee… enough to give you freedom. Freedom to make your own choices and decisions. Freedom to feel free from guilt about pretending to be someone you are not.
I love thee…without fearlessness. To create the space to tell the truth without being afraid.
I love thee….for your growth. Everyone needs someone to support them while they grow and make changes. I will stand by you.
I love thee… thru transformation. When you are seeking to understand, I will give you the space to search.
I love thee… thru all vulnerability. Allowing us to cultivate a safe haven so we can be open and honest at all times.
I love thee….with authenticity. I will love you in ways that matter ONLY to you
I love thee….for thee. Loving each person for who they are and honoring their gifts and talents will give them the foundation to launch into the success that is meant to be theirs.
I love thee leadership style: The greatest leaders are those who connect in positive and heartfelt ways to their organizations, and who do so with inspiration, motivation and heart.
Lead From Within: Learning to love others authentically and in ways that matter to them is one of the best things any leader can do.
This POST is dedicated to the ONE I LOVE………….YOU!!!!!!

  4. Spot on Lolly so lead on! The people-skills aspects of leadership make a significant difference. When leaders get over any fear they may have about losing objectivity if they show compassion — they succeed and so does the organization.

    Thanks Lolly for reminding us of some of the many ways God loves us all directly, and indirectly though Others who appear in our lives throughout our journey. Your post brings us back to an ancient memory embedded deep within each of our very souls, when we were first created and kissed by an Angel of God, a kiss of LOVE that would always be eternal, yet needing affirmation throughout our lives on this plane. You are one of those “Others” in my life and the lives of so many members of your wonderful cyber family. Mahalo nui loa and Aloha EdC

    Dear Lolly,

    Great post and appetizer for tomorrow night’s chat. It will bring great emotion to leadfromwithin with.

    Love, such a strong yet often misunderstood word, some fear it, some seek it, some may never have felt it.

    Love cannot be grasped, bought, sold or thrown away. It lies hidden, dorment within us all waiting to be touched by life, and then to blossom and flourish with such speed and rapture that is can extinguish pain, dispare, fear and want.

    Love should be cherished and nourished, love deserves our attention and commitment to its fuel, of life.

    Love as you say comes in may forms, it can and should be expressed in many ways, it knows no borders, has no boundaries but those that we impose ourselves from fear and misunderstanding.

    I look forward to spreading the love that you bring from within and the amazing gentleness of @John_Paul will surely bring us together to leadfromwithin.

    Love you for being here, and being you.

    You are amazing.

    Thanks Lolly for sharing. Great topic for tomorrow chat!

    I love thee, … because I WANT to love you. Love is not a feeling, love is an act of will. I choose to love you in a free and voluntary act.

    To love is to pursue the good of other not for myself but for him, selflessly.

    Therefore, love a person is to direct our whole being (mind, will, emotions, attitudes, skills, possessions, service and delivery capacity) to the being of the person you want, so that it deployment and develop to the perfection of his being.

    Love involves suffering, if you are not capable of suffering you are not capable of love. The higher capacity to accept suffering, the higher capacity to love.

    Understanding all these allows us to work on developing what we need to love without limits

    I loved the way you spreading your love in #leadfromwithin

    Thanks again!!

    It’s really refreshing to see such a different perspective on leadership – your focus on incorporating passion and internal motivations make it seem so much more human and organic. Thanks for the beautiful insights 🙂
