Moving you past the road blocks and on the path to success
BUSINESS | CAREER | RELATIONSHIPS
When we begin to focus on ourselves we have this feeling of importance and value that lifts us. Although, paying attention isn't enough when striving to reach our goals. The next step is to become fierce with our goals and really fight for what we want.
Although, myself included, we often take the easy road and settle. What does settle mean? We give up and rationalize that this isn't important, or we didn't really want it. And yet we did. We have that sinking feeling which can translate into, I'm not important. And that kinda sucks...
In this blog I'm going to address what being fierce is and how we can add it to our life to really support our goals—and achieve them.
Think back to a time when we stopped ourselves from being okay with something and stood up for ourselves to get what we wanted. It could be a job, a relationship, a promotion, or an opportunity of some sort.
If you don't connect to that experience, that's okay. That will come to you, because...
If while in a conversation we struggle with thinking of that right word or phrase, at the right time... or the term of that... "what-do-you-call-it?", this can be very frustrating. But there's a small shift we can make to avoid this awkward moment and have us respond more effectively and intelligently.
In this blog, I'll provide strategies to help us overcome this awkwardness and communicate our worth in front of those we want to impress.
When having a conversation with another, we might be challenged to come up with the right response, and draw a blank. We frantically search our mind for the term, or detail, only to come up empty. That right word is somewhere in the depths of our mind—on the tip of our tongue, but refuses to come out when we want it most. The frustration we feel makes finding those words even worse.
Then finally... after an hour, or even 10 minutes, those thoughts suddenly appear. Unfortunately,...
Much stress in our life is because we feel we lost control—someone else is steering our ship and this makes us feel powerless. In this blog, I'll show you five activities you can implement now, to empower you and reduce that feeling you lost control.
Just the thought of someone else telling us what we can and can't do may make us angry, and then we immediately conclude that our freedom is at risk.
When we have the feeling that we lost control of our life we try to compensate for this lack of control by preying on those who will allow it. The unfortunate consequence is that controlling someone else can deteriorate that relationship. Trust is at stake, and they'll distance themselves.
Eventually we'll begin to lose the people that are important in our life.
That feeling of losing control, is just that—a feeling. Thoughts of what could be, lean towards negative ruminating when we feel our freedom is...
Tell me more about yourself? This is a challenging question for many, especially when we're sitting across from a person we want to impress. What to say, or not to say? How much detail is too much detail? What answer are they looking for?
By the end of this blog, you'll have a good idea of what to say to a person you want to impress so their attention is on you. As well, some activities to have that person remember you long after the conversation is over.
As we sit across from the one we want to impress, and listening to thoughts in our head of what to say, we miss out on the nuances of the conversation. Then instead of adding to the conversation we end up detracting it. The responses we give maybe agreeable, general and vague, and not contributing much at all.
By being quiet or reserved you may come across as hiding something, or uncertain, or indecisive, or uninterested. This signal can have the other person wondering if they can trust you, or...
Lately we've been experiencing much disappointment and loss from this pandemic and it's taking a toll on our wellbeing. But for many is also having us question our worth, and the value of our contribution.
Many of us have been let go at work, and others have had to reinvent their business. Both of these circumstances have us needing to recreate ourselves, and with that comes much uncertainty.
At the best of times, we're battling some sort of judgement, and this can have us discounting our worth. But what's worse, is when we believe what the nay sayers are telling us—or what we assume they're thinking. And when we do that, we fail to support ourselves 100%.
We try to interpret the words or actions of others, and as we take that message into our mind, we translate it into whatever we want. But when that message isn't certain, and the meaning unclear, we most often translate it into something negative.
We naturally go...
With the limitations we currently have while in isolation, we often feel like we're relinquishing control. When we begin to try to control other people and their actions, this is a sign that we don't feel in control of our life.
Before this need to control starts to push people away, we need to change the way we think and carry out our actions.
It may feel like we're compromising our freedom—we can't go to social events, we have to maintain social distancing at the grocery store, we can only buy one item at a time, the kids don't have access to the playground... I'm sure there are many other places you've found where you're feeling limited. And every time you turn on the news there are more restrictions.
I want to help you get back in the driver's seat and in control of your life to make this isolation much more positive!
