The greatest problem to overcome……………………FEAR
My definition of FEAR is:
Most of it takes place in the mind, and very often is involved with us losing something.
Loss of our liberty, money, relationships.
Many of us spend a lot of time focusing on our fear, until it becomes in grained in granite in our mind, that this is reality.
This is not true.
Put your thoughts and focus on happy thoughts.
People you love, happy events in your life.
I personally have a “Happy Thought” my granddaughters.
It is very difficult, in fact in this impossible, to feel fear, when I focus on these two beautiful girls, who I love so much.
Find yourself “A Happy Thought.”
The most endangered species……………………. Dedicated leaders.
We only have to look around the world to see sadly how true this is.
This does, however, open up opportunities for leaders to step up on the stage. Maybe this is a real opportunity for you!
People fundamentally like to be led, they like to follow, someone who is clear about the outcomes they want to achieve, and also there needs to be something in the leaders message for the listener.
The greatest “shot in the arm”………………………….ENCOURAGEMENT
The easiest place to see this is with children.
They respond wonderfully to “good job”, “well done”, or “you're very clever.”
There is obviously not enough praise given, otherwise we would not experience so much doubt, self-doubt, and lack of confidence in the world.
I definitely believe in discipline, but we can achieve positive results, and increase confidence, by encouragement rather than retrimand.
The greatest LOSS…………… loss of Self-Respect.
When we lose our self-respect, we lose our sense of self worth,and our integrity.
There is a big price to pay for the loss of our respect and reputation.
Be honest and TRUST yourself.
The most SATISFYING work…………….......... Helping others.
One of the most fulfilling experiences we can have is helping others.
To experience helping another human being, and seeing their reaction, and often joy and happiness, in having a new discovery can be magical.
The UGLIEST personality trait is…………………… Selfishness.
People who are selfish, are only ME, ME, ME focused.
There is no space in the conversation and behaviour, or for anyone other than them SELF.
Many people who are selfish, had very few if any real friends.
In this blog I want to talk again about success. How to make the jobs that you're running successful, and these are what I call the “4E’s”. If you have these 4 E’s” then the ultimate chance of you being successful is guaranteed.
As we go through this exercise, ask yourself the following questions does my project have these 4 E’s?
The leaders, the managers, the employees need to be energized.
Are we energizing our employees, our customers, our suppliers, our workmates?
Do we have the ability to give “yes” “no” answers to make decisions? Trillions of dollars are lost in the US through indecision, procrastination. Is this happening in your organization? Is this happening in your project team? It is better to make the wrong decision, than have no decision at all. Nobody feels their mistake like the person who makes it, and they will quickly put it right once they realize they have made a mistake.
Deliver your results on time. Deliver against the plan.
“ Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion, you must set yourself on fire”
It’s what happens within you, not what happens to you.
It’s not what happens to you, it’s what happens within you.
Your attitude is a choice.
Happiness is MY responsibility; other people cannot make me happy.
Attitude is not everything, it is the main thing.
Invest in helping others with their dreams.
Four ways to value people:
1. If you value people, people value you.
2. Add value to people, when you know what they value.
3. Add value to people, by making ourselves more valuable.
4. Add value to people, do the thing God values.
Dreams are conceived, long before they are realised.
Have a spirit of forgiveness.
