To Activate Others, Bring the Energy!

Monday, August 8th, 2022

 

To activate others to be enthusiastic, you must first become enthusiastic yourself.

We have an energy that transfers to others around us.

You know a person who walks into the workplace exhausted—they pull the energy out of everyone around them.

You’ve had your energy pulled from that person. Perhaps you’ve even been that person.

Alternatively, if you choose to come into the office with an enthusiastic mindset and belief system.

And you choose energy—even though you’re exhausted, even though you’ve been working hard—that, too, is contagious.

Are you the kind of person whom others want around to catch the energy that you have?

Ask yourself that every day and decide to bring the energy to the game.

Look at things as they can be

Monday, August 1st, 2022

 

Look at things not as they are but as they can be.

A big thinker always visualizes what can be done in the future. They are not stuck with the present but live in a world of possibility.

So, look around you today and see what is around you.

Then ask yourself: “What could be here? What could be created? What if we lived in a powerful way? What would we make happen?”

Then, from that vantage point, take action.

Rise Above Limiting Beliefs

Monday, February 21st, 2022

People never exceed their belief systems.

If you don’t believe you can get premium pricing over what you charge in your company, you’re not going to get premium pricing.

It’s not because somebody else can’t, it just means you’re never going to exceed your belief systems.

You’re never going to exceed your belief systems in terms of your capacity to be successful at work. If you believe you’re only capable of so much, you will fulfill your promise to yourself, sadly.

Our disowned parts…

Monday, February 14th, 2022
 

What part of you are you projecting on others?

Carl Jung taught us that what we love about other people we love about ourselves. What we dislike about others, speaks highly of the work we need to do on ourselves. Okay, I know you didn’t want to hear that. And yeah, I know you don’t believe it. And yet, psychologist after psychologist has proven that we project our disowned parts of ourselves onto others.

Look around and decide what you don’t like in other people that you work with.

If you had a problem getting along with your boss, it might not have anything to do with your boss, and you might not have had a good relationship with your previous boss and perhaps the boss before that.

If that’s the case, I’ll bet they all look the same. Why? Because these kinds of things are archetypal. In other words, we repeat the same patterns we had before; patterns so foundational to ourselves that we keep seeing them. So, as you listen to people complain about others in your workplace, notice that oftentimes, what people are really complaining about is their disowned parts of themselves.

Own the parts of you that are the ugly

So instead, ask people for what you want directly. Own the parts of you that are the ugly little part of you; that evil twin that comes along to work every day.

As you own that and look at that, it gives you the ability to say, Hmm, okay, I could be doing some work on myself. I’m going to stop making it about others and instead, step into it and realize that it’s my job to decide to love everybody with whom I work.

We still have our lines in the sand asking for what we need, but we can do it with kindness and gentleness, and just create a better awareness as opposed to being upset by it, and then we can stop projecting our disowned parts of ourselves onto others.

I bet we’ll be a whole lot happier being ourselves and being with the people that we’re around.

One of the Best Ways to Earn the Respect of Your Team…

Monday, January 17th, 2022
 

Focus on Quality

When I go into one of the workplaces of the clients that we work with and see a sign that says “Clean up behind yourself. Your mother doesn’t work here,” I got to tell you… it rubs me the wrong way.

I find it just a little bit insulting. That said, there is a message there that is probably more important outside of the break room. And that is this: we are all required to do our job well, which means it’s absolutely important to double check—and sometimes triple check—the quality of our work.

When we don’t focus in on that quality, we leave messes for those behind us.

Be Attentive and Have Respect

Listen… You’ve got to get your ego in check and realize that you too make mistakes and that you need to respect the need for accuracy.

Maybe you’re the kind of person who is always accurate anyway (Really though, you’ll still probably want to double check for accuracy).

If you know that you’re not all that accurate, you probably need to check three—or maybe four—times to make sure that you don’t get a reputation as the person being told  “your mama doesn’t work here” and making somebody else clean up behind you.

Be attentive and have respect for the quality of what you put out. You will earn the respect of those on your team.
