A Debt of Gratitude

By Andrea Goeglein

Thousands of people owe a debt of gratitude to television host John Oliver.  He showed me what it looks like to see a terrible injustice and do something to make things right.  His idea and action saved many strangers from medical bankruptcy.

If you think this has nothing to do with my work in positive psychology, think again.  Here is the connection:

  1. Research shows that giving to others increases well-being of both the giver and the receiver.
  2. Feeling gratitude toward another who has helped you in some way improves your well-being.
  3. Creativity is one of the 24 Values in Action.  John Oliver and his team came up with one of the most creative and innovative ways to solve a social injustice I have ever seen.

This clip is 20 minutes long.  The best part is at the end, but watching the rest is a well-grounded education on a business that needs to clean up its act.

Be brave, Andrea
