We just can't stay who we were. I thought that the beginning of the new year is a great time to ponder on this. Because no matter what you do or don't do things happen or they don't both will affect who you are and who you will become. You do have choices. You do have some control as to who you are and who you will become.
A definition of leadership is the action of leading a group of people or an organization.
One definition that I came across that I truly like is “Leadership is essentially a continuous process of influencing behavior.”
To really talk about leadership, we must have a good understanding of what a leader is. Afterall, we see the word “leader” being tossed around a lot, especially in social media.
There are positive emotions and negative emotions.
In the book by Napolean Hill, “Think and Grow Rich,” Mr. Hill talks about how your impulses are affected by positive and negative emotions.
Use your positive emotions to feed your creative effort.
Negative emotions will affect you, well, negatively.
Mr. Hill states that, “Positive and negative emotions cannot occupy the mind at the same time.”
We must form habits to apply and use positive emotions so that there is not room for negative emotions to occupy our mind.
Let's talk about Goals! Specifically SMART goals and DUMB goals. Make sure you check out Brendon Burchard's video that inspired me to think beyond the ordinary: https://youtu.be/_3AR9zH8LTE
We do need to accomplish things, but don't forget to add that dream to your goals so you can live a life of purpose!
In this episode, I'll be talking about failing and when we fail, it is a first attempt in learning. We often look at failure as something negative! Let’s change that perspective to the positive!
"Failure is nothing more than a chance to revise your strategy."--Sissy Gavrilaki
In this episode, I will expand on my acronym, RISE.
We are faced with many challenges every day.
Each challenge offers YOU the opportunity to make a choice. You are able to choose how to proceed, who to include, who to exclude, etc
Really examining what you have to offer and what those around you have to offer provides the opportunity to see the value in yourself and the value in others.
This leads me to the RISE acronym:
Realize Individuals' Significance Everywhere
In this episode I will talk about REST! Revitalize and Energize Self for Transition!
I ask you, if you are seldom refreshed and energized, how can you be your best for others?
Life happens. We get caught up with deadlines and expectations. We are often pulled by the busyness of life. It seems society teaches us that if we are not always busy, we must not be successful.
I disagree. If you are not resting and revitalizing yourself, you cannot be successful.
Often times when we are on a mission of change or meeting demands, we just persevere no matter what our body tells us. This can be very detrimental to our health.
Listen as i give tips to be the best you that you can be!
Many of us struggle internally with things that have happened to us or with things we have done. We cannot get beyond where we believe we have fallen short to move forward. We have hurt others or we have hurt ourselves. In this episode I offer 7 steps to learn how to forgive yourself (and others): Find, Own, Realize, Give, Internalize, Vindicate, Embrace.
