Reward People for Their Hard Work

Look at this gorgeous scenery!

I LOVE being so close to the mountains as I come in and out of work at the ICU!

Today I had nursea conversation with a woman who has been a nurse for almost 40 years! She told me how she is getting close to retirement but that she is sad because she feels like she has nothing to show for it.

She told me how other women her age have written books or are well-known for their homemaking skills or cooking skills but she has been a full-time nurse for so long she has not been recognized or praised for her work.

And it made me so sad.

Here is a woman who has spent the majority of her life serving others, caring for others and she feels like she hasn’t received any reward or praise for it. What a shame!

And it got me thinking about my life and my seven years as a nurse. I too have not received recognition or praise as a nurse other than a couple of thank you cards from managers and families.

And yes, helping others as a nurse IS rewarding in the moment, although there have been moments of extreme highs and lows as an ICU nurse in dealing with critical life and death situations.

And then I realized that in my one year of being an online fitness and business coach I have received more recognition, reward, and praise then I ever have in my seven years of nursing.

It makes me sad that typical jobs don’t reward people for their hard work. The more effort I put into my coaching the more reward I get in return. And I didn’t go to school for 4+ years to be a coach.

What’s wrong with this picture?
