Power of love

Uprooted tree

The power of love, as we may know through direct or indirect experience, has a way of uprooting our heart. Whether this is good or bad is up to each of us to ponder in a moment of reflection perhaps.

Within a work scenario the power of love might seem an intruder. After all, we could argue, work is a serious issue and not the place for sentimental slush. Others would possibly chip in with stories concerning the destructive impact of office romances, reducing the power of love to mere moments of physical attraction.

Yet if we think in terms of a heartfelt commitment to undertaking work not only for the sake of economic rewards, but also for the social good it can achieve, the power of love is often the force behind successful enterprises and businesses.

Individuals too, giving their best, can leave a lasting impression on those with whom they interact: the pizza maker has the opportunity to make the diners’ evening magical; the bricklayer is not just building another house, but helping in the establishment of a family’s home; teachers through their enthusiasm may inspire generations of students to continue in education instead of quitting once exams are passed.

These are examples of the power of love, and as Albert Schweitzer, the 1952 Nobel Peace Prize winner, noted: “If you love what you are doing, you will be successful”.

But what do you think? Please feel free to share your thoughts on the issue of the power of love by leaving a comment below.
