Slaying My Dreams

I was so overwhelmed and tired that I decided to throw in the towel. My inner Warrior threw it back at me and said ‘Wipe your tears girl, we’re almost there. We can do this!’ And so we did. 🦋

Surprisingly Simple Solution.

The excuses are many and yet the solution can be surprisingly simple. 80% of success is showing up the remaining 20% is following up. 🦋

Success’s Secret Sauce

Today is Blue Monday. It’s also the 21st day in 2019. A good time to reaffirm our commitments, review and tweak our new year goals and plans. Note to self, enthusiastic focus is the secret sauce for my success. Let’s do this! 🦋

The Magic Bullet …

Throughout the past few millenniums, tomes have been written, talks have been scripted, motivational speakers have enlightened, coaches and consultants have been hired on a subject matter that only requires a two worded mantra, ‘Do It’, followed up by a whole lot of more ‘Do Its’ and of course heaps of befitting action.

Success, is defined as the accomplishment of an aim or purpose. Nike got it right in 1988 with their timeless inspirational tag line, ‘Just do it’.

The magic bullet for success? Simply, recognize that success is not a noun but verb, a lot of verbs strung together to the very end.

‘Do It’ till it’s done. 🦋

The Soul Of Success …

Integrity is the fundamental source of self-worth, the soul of success ….

Cruelty Is Never Ok …

Cruelty is deliberately causing or wanting to cause another pain or suffering and not being sorry or remorseful about it. Usually, our stance is self-righteous and we feel justified in our harshness.

Gossiping, character assassination, spreading false rumours, humiliating, criticizing, polarizing and ostracizing are a few examples of active cruelty in the workplace and in our personal relationships.

Yes, it’s ok to be angry, upset, frustrated and disappointed but it is never ok to covertly or openly lash out with the intent to hurt another and then be smugly ok about it.

Taking responsibility for our emotions is emotional intelligence. To be emotionally intelligent is a self-empowering discipline worthy of our attention and effort. It is the capacity and practice of being self-aware, self-control, effectively expressing our emotions and being able to interact with others objectively with compassion and empathy. 

Emotional Intelligence is considered to be the bedrock of personal and professional success. 

To learn more about Emotional Intelligence, I highly recommend Daniel Goleman’s book ‘Emotional Intelligence’.

We Cannot Fail …

There is no such thing as failure! There are outcomes, results or feedback. As long as we are learning, gaining knowledge, expanding our perspective and moving forward we are succeeding.
