Your Vulnerability is Your Power

Monday, February 19th, 2018

 

Sometimes I feel like people are walking around with a face on a stick. They have a fa├žade and when they pull that away, there’s the real person underneath that.

Your vulnerability is your power. Being real is your power. Being authentic about where you have fears or where you have concerns, that’s your power.

When you come as the real person that you are, as opposed to putting your face on a stick, you allow for authentic communication pattern to happen within your workplace. And it’s okay.

When you’re real, people will be there wanting to help you through that and so, just be real. Enjoy the fact that the face on the stick can go away now, it’s no longer necessary, you get to be you.

Create Your Future

Monday, January 22nd, 2018

 

Thank God it’s Monday, because you an opportunity to create a great Monday and a great week. You see, this week isn’t just going to happen to you. You can get to create that week if you choose to. Most people aren’t conscious of this. They think life occurs to them, and they don’t realize that they create a life.

For instance, if you want to have a great day, you’re going to go about it differently, won’t you? You’re going to be happier. You’re going to look for great things to happen around you. You’re going to be more disciplined in creating great things. You’re going to improve your relationships, and as a result, you’ll create a great Monday. Then, why not take it into the rest of the week? You see, creating a great life is just about having great choices and being committed to creating a possibility that you had never even dreamed possible.

Take Care of Your Brain

Monday, January 8th, 2018

 

How’s your brain doing today? No, seriously, how’s your brain doing today? You see, your brain and how it functions doesn’t just happen one way. It operates differently based on the fact that you’re taking care of it. Exercise and good positive thinking and good healthy eating habits all impact the fact that you can think more clearly when you’re at work.

The reality is when we’re eating fried foods and eating burgers, we’re changing our brain chemistry in a way that doesn’t serve our ability to focus. If you’re having a difficult time focusing, you’re probably ingesting some things you shouldn’t be and not getting the exercise that you need.

If you want success in your life, and also health in your life, you’ll need to be considering a little bit about how will you be taking care of your brain and getting your omegas, your rest, your sleep and eating the kind of food that keeps you optimizing your results because you matter. Taking care of you is probably the most important job you have.

Are You Your Worst Critic?

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

 

Are you your worst critic? Why I know that one. I think we all are. But, the thing about that is even though you’re criticizing yourself, it’s also important to make sure you’re celebrating your breakthroughs, as small as they may be. They’ve actually proven that if you spend 15 minutes at the end of every day and you acknowledge all the breakthroughs you’ve had for the day and the successes you have for the day, that by taking that 15 minutes that you can wildly increase your productivity for the next day and beyond, because there’s a brain chemistry thing that basically says what we pay attention to grows.

We are changing the structure of our brain to focus in on what’s working. We’re built to find all the things that aren’t working, yes? Okay, you know how that works, and so, try on the habit of celebrating yourself with all the successes you have. If it’s as small as making the list of the things to do, then checking off everyone, ’cause that feels good, or to at the end of the day, acknowledge yourself for all the great things you’ve learned and all the great conversations you’ve had and all the great outcomes.

Whatever you do, create a habitual process that allows for you to keep celebrating your small successes, because by doing that you will create much larger successes.

How to Better Your Best

Monday, December 11th, 2017

 

How can you better your best? Okay, so there are certain things that you’re just a master of, and you’re really good. But the problem with really good is it gets in the way of really great. It becomes the ceiling that keeps us from being able to see a possibility beyond that, unless you come from a place of deciding every day to better your best.

How do you be in competition with yourself? How do you set higher goals? How can you shave even more time off of that project? How can you have even more quality in that project? How do you take that number and move it even beyond that? You see, when you see what’s possible within you, you find out a lot about you and about what’s possible when you set the intention of being unstoppable to go create whatever mastery looks like for you.
