CREATE AN AUTHENTIC CONNECTION“WHEN WE FEARLESSLY FIGHT FOR WHAT WE BELIEVE IN AND REMAIN HOPELESSLY OPTIMISTIC ABOUT LIFE, LOVE AND THE FUTURE, WE CREATE AN AUTHENTIC CONNECTION WITH ALL IN OUR PATH. MOST IMPORTANTLY WITH OURSELF.”

inspiredIf we do what we want to do, what we have to do and what is needed, nobody has to tell us what you have to do. If we get more it’s because we give more, we do more. Compassion is important, but it’s more important to tend to our responsibilities. Let the new year inspire us to be inspired, responsible and giving. Let us show our inner strength to our loved ones to help improve their daily routines to do what’s needed.

procrastinationFalling into bad habits like laziness, procrastination, and an attitude of entitlement.

You may recognize some of your (many) behaviors that are like this, which have a trigger which is relatively easy to perform, but cascades effort to the rest of the behavior.  We can combat our human weakness by taking responsibility when others won’t. Lets start today.
If you can establish the trigger as a habit, the rest will follow:
  • Exercising – Commit to going to the gym.
  • Learning – Read at least one page.
  • Socializing – Say hello to one person.
  • Writing – Write a paragraph on any topic
Clever planning matters more than inexhaustible endurance. Invest your energy, not just in trying to stick to your goals, but in designing goals which are easier to stick with.

thinkposStop saying “should have,” after you lose your job . Start saying “next time.” The former is backward-facing and the latter is forward-facing.
Should have’s correct the past; something impossible to do. When you say “we should have” you belittle past wisdom and efforts
Should-have-leaders honor their critics; something that creates more critics because you get more of what you honor.
Critics frequently don’t participate but judge what was done. Critics sit on the sidelines and seldom offer useful suggestions because they are ignorant of everything that was planned and done. They tear down. If the best you can do is point out failures in others, you’re probably failing yourself.
Participants, on the other hand, offer insightful evaluations that create improvements. They establish platforms that enhance and build the future
Say, “What worked” and “What didn’t work” rather than “What went wrong.” The former acknowledges sincere effort. The latter is negative; it belittles participants.
“Should have” ties you to the past and expresses defeatist attitudes. “Next time” presses into the future and maintains momentum; something all successful leaders do.
Think positive and don’t do anything rush or bitter. As satisfying as it might be, making accusation or sending an email about everything that’s wrong with that company, your ex boss, your ex colleagues, the work place just be smart don’t do it. You need to protect your reputation now more than ever, and a bitter, hostile exit will make that impossible. Being negative holds you in the past and restrains you from the future
Put all the energy in finding the next step up and let the past “What worked” to be the starting point for your future. Better old friends than new enemies.
