When's the last time you got to make someone else a hero?
I'll admit, I'm a sucker for good TV. One of my guilty addictions is Grey's Anatomy. Yes, I watch that show. In case you don't watch it, brief background:
George was an intern but he didn't pass his exam. So while all of his friends are now residents, he's still an intern. None of the other interns know this, but he's pretty down about it. He has to repeat his first year.
So, on this, his first day of his second year as an intern, he delivers a baby for a woman who was in a tragic accident. For him, it's a letdown. He's done this before. He can only think about the fact that he's still an intern. He has a conversation with Lexi - one of the other interns (who is also Meredith's half-sister), and she basically tells him to suck it up.
Then she does something special. She tells all the other interns that he delivered a baby by himself on his very first day as an intern.
To them, he became a hero. None of them did anything remotely close on their first day. They were in awe and he became a hero.
When is the last time I lifted someone up by giving them the credit - publicly? In front of their peers? In front of their boss?
Make someone a hero.
