Make Your Message Meaningful

“Developing excellent communication skills is absolutely essential to effective leadership. The leader must be able to share knowledge and ideas to transmit a sense of urgency and enthusiasm to others. If a leader can’t get a message across clearly and motivate others to act on it, then having a message doesn’t even matter.”

–Gilbert Amelio, President and CEO of

National Semiconductor Corporation

“Quality of Life”

“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives.”

 http://groups.google.com/group/materials-welding

We hear the term “quality of life” like it is some quality that is external of our being. I have read and heard this equated in political discourse as something that [is implied] institutions are responsible for. Why wait for some institution to give you permission, a subsidy or a politician to promise you bread and happiness? Seth Godin wrote a blog essay recently:

Reject the tyranny of being picked, pick yourself:

 “Once you understand that there are problems just waiting to be solved, once you realize that you have all the tools and all the permission you need, then opportunities to contribute abound.

No one is going to pick you. Pick yourself.” –Seth Godin

Stop, Breath, Center, Observe

Self-awareness is crucial to our wellbeing, our happiness and reaching our goals in life. Our sense of self has the coding so to speak for “the map” we have in our head that tells us who we are and where we are in the world.

When you are having a crisis:

“Stop!

  • Don’t act or react.

  • Breath.

  • Center.

  • Observe:

 

What is the big picture?

Have I felt this way before?

What does this situation remind me of?

How was I feeling right before the event?

(I was tired, I was happy, I was already

upset, I was not paying attention.)”

Play to Win, by Larry Wilson, pp. 95, Bard Press

Dr. Maxwell Maltz, MD, FICS

 

One of the first books on self-esteem that I read many years ago was “Psycho-cybernetics and Self-Fulfillment” by Dr. Maxwell Maltz, MD, FICS. I’ve lived and learned a lot since then. One of the problems that I have experienced, learned from and have overcome (although it’s a work in progress) is looking in the rear-view mirror. Dr. Maltz was right on regarding self-acceptance and forgiveness. We deserve to live joyously and courageously working towards our purpose in life!

“Am I regularly revisiting the past to gain a true perspective and think with understanding?”

–John C Maxwell, How Successful People Think, pp. 80, Center Street ISBN 978-1-59995-168-3 http://johnmaxwellonleadership.com/

Self-Awareness

Self-awareness is crucial to our wellbeing, our happiness and reaching our goals in life. Our sense of self has the coding so to speak for “the map” we have in our head that tells us who we are and where we are in the world.

When a child is about two-years old he starts to be able to distinguish his needs from others, this self-consciousness or self-awareness that his identity is separate from others, and the ability to feel pride and shame.

As an example put a touch of rouse on a child’s cheek then hold up a mirror. If she touches the rouse on her own cheek, rather than the reflection in the mirror, then she has become aware that she’s the child in the mirror.

Our map (the imaginary one in our head) may no longer be serving our highest and true self. Our career, our relationships, our goals in life may be at an impasse due to our inattention or a self-image that is not what it should be. Because we have the power to choose, we can choose to change. We can create a new vision, a new map and chart our future in a different and more successful direction.

“Determine what’s in your best interests:

  • Is my thinking helping me to protect my life and health?

 

  • Will my thinking help me to achieve my short- and long-term goals?

 

  • Will my thinking best help me avoid my most undesirable conflicts with others?

 

  • Will my thinking help me feel emotionally the way I want to feel?”

 

Play to Win, by Larry Wilson, pp. 109, Bard Press

Visualize Your Future!

 

Use visualization to re-program your self-image and create a vision of positive self-expectancy. Make a Vision Board! Place pictures of yourself and your loved ones with things that you desire and goals that you want to accomplish in the present/ future.

A vision board can be a bulletin board made of cork with a frame around that you hang on the wall where it serves as a daily reminder. It can also be pictures placed on your computer’s desktop as a slide show.

Our personal map can be stuck on “present” in that we have become comfortable with our present circumstances we view it as what our life IS. This is an incomplete and fictitious picture of who we are and what we are capable of accomplishing in life. We can re-program our mind by changing our thoughts; reading inspirational books and informative books on topics we are interested. Next by setting goals with a longer term view in mind we can grow and change. Learning should be a lifelong process both in what we accomplish and in knowledge through study and observation.

Action steps:

1. Create a Vision for yourself.

2. Write a plan of action, prioritize.

3. Live the plan as if you have become your vision.

4. Find mentors

5. Do it now!
