Day 2 of the Touch with Good story challenge
One of the best parts of working as a designer is I get the privilege to be involved with amazing inspiring people and bring their ideas into vision.
Needless to say, sometimes our professional relations grow into genuine friendships and we keep in touch much longer after the project has been completed.
Such an example was my lovely friend Katya Georgieva and her project Touch with Good/ kindness (originally in Bulgarian: Докосни с добро). The project is dedicated to sharing the stories of genuine acts of kindness we have experienced from other people, and thus inspiring for MORE kindness in the world and making it a better place.
She got inspiration from the wisdom:
When you do kindness, keep silent. When you receive kindness — tell everyone.
The point is we tend to remember and tell our own acts of kindness rather than the acts of kindness we receive. Or too often do we take them for granted.
With the new year 2018, Katya started a viral challenge to share such stories 20 days in a row, and somehow… I got “infected”.
So here is my
Day 2 of the Touch with Good challenge
One of the big questions recently when my birthday approaches is “What present do you want?”.
Around my last birthday, I had “sharpened my teeth” to present myself with the new program on Personal Branding and Reputation by Bulgarian expert Boril Bogoev, of whom I am a great fan. ❤
My boyfriend caught me “red-handed” right when preparing my bank card for transaction, and suggested to present me with the training. The proposal surprised me but I fondly accepted and I rushed to brag loudly and publicly in the FB group with my new acquisition.
BUT surprises didn’t end here!!
Several hours later I received a personal message from THE Boril Bogoev himself who had decided to make me YET ANOTHER present and grant me access to… more or less all his trainings I hadn’t got a hold on!
Now someone may argue:
Jeez, what are you so damn excited about?! Don’t you see he’s just his sucking in with marketing funnel and it practically doesn’t cost a thing to him, while you are sleeking and promoting him!
Ummm,… Not exactly 😉 The guy’s showing personal attitude by making an incredibly nice gesture, for which he’s hardly obliged, if AT ALL! Not only is he presenting attention, but he’s parting with a potential couple of hundred bucks which he could well earn from me as a client of the very same trainings. And let’s not forget — these are years of experience, knowledge, and skills under his belt, the cost of which is only known to him.
That’s why I support and genuinely cheer for people like him who deserve every bit of their success, and yet — they remain humble, gentle and kind at the same time.
