What Thrive Means to Me
How awesome is it that we live in a day-and-age where there is an organisation solely dedicated to making people happy! When I first came across Thrive I was inspired. Seeing such a vibrant, energetic and unique organisation created purely to make others happy immediately made me want to be a part of it. I’m sure you do too!
We are all seeking more than just a nine-to-five job, and we finally have the opportunity to do so. This proves especially relevant for Generation Y. We not only want our jobs—but our life—to be interesting, inspiring, challenging and most off all, meaningful.
Would you agree that most of us are in “the pursuit of happiness”? We seek happiness from money, the gifts that we buy with it, and whatever one may do to fill this emotional void inside us. While we may never stop pursuing happiness, there is in fact one key ingredient some people tend to miss, that is; to inspire happiness in others.
One Thing That Makes Me Happy
Personally, skateboarding is something that truly makes me happy; it creates a sense of freedom. What makes me even happier is that I was able to create the same effect for others, and I did this by creating a community-based skateboarding “school”. Being able to teach and improve the skills of others around me is inspiring and highly rewarding; especially when your influence helps them to grow and achieve new things. My thoughts are; if you’ve found something that makes you happy, why not try to share it with someone else?
What is is about inspiring happiness in others?
Whether it be through random acts of kindness or being that trusty friend in need, inspiring happiness in others is one of the best ways to make yourself happy. And interestingly, one of the best ways to make other people happy is to be happy yourself. This is where Thrive can lend a hand!
Ever heard of the domino effect? This is what excites me the most about Thrive; the opportunity to inspire happiness that will hopefully be contagious. In a good way!
Thrive has a massive task ahead of itself. Inspiring happiness in 100, 000, 000 people is something easier said than done. Personally, I couldn’t think of a better challenge!
The ideas being generated here at the “Thrive Happiness Lab” are beyond exciting. At this very moment, the opportunities for Thrive to grow happiness in others are endless. Whether it’s the projects that are still being conceptualised, or the projects we have in store, I will tell you this; keep your eyes on Thrive!
Smiles for miles, Coehn
