There is a deeper meaning to the holidays once you get past the surface of family, great food and receiving gifts. Although nothing should be taken away from these Yuletide traditions, the true significance lies in the act giving. David Meltzer
“Make a lot of money, Help a lot of people, Have a lot of fun” is our mission at Sports 1 Marketing. This path to happiness and success lies in the way an individual utilizes and perceives giving to create a sense of gratification one only feels when accomplishing gracious giving! sports technology
“Make a lot of money.” Many people look at the first part of our mission and interpret it as it’s written on its face. However, these words have a deeper meaning than just “money.” Yes, money is important, But Why? The answer lies in gratitude and giving. sports technology
Making a lot of money allows us to give others what they do not have. A few ago I began giving my employees and interns a $100 bonus contingent on the freedom to “keep or give.” Before giving them the bonus I asked them to write down on a scale from 1 to 10 how happy they felt. The majority of the people answers ranged from 4-8. Upon return from the holiday exercise of giving, I posed the same question just one hour later. It was no surprise all of them responded with 10+. Why?
Giving is the easiest and most effective way to create happiness. When we give Serotonin is released in our brains which is actually biochemically proven to make us happy! Not only does it make us happy by giving, Seratonin is released in those who receive our generosity and the recipient is happy as well. But most interestingly anyone that witnesses this act of giving Serotonin is released and they are happy as well. So there is no better way to scientifically create happiness than to give!
Sports 1 Marketing is devoted to helping those who need help. We promote and achieve this in many ways including encouraging all our clients to be associated with charities so that we together can give back to the community while taking care of ourselves. sports technology David Meltzer
Giving, Receiving, and Witnessing happiness is what life, especially the holidays, is all about.
