Monday Motivation: Courage

May 16th, 2016 by

pablo (14)

True story! “You get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” Other people do not really think about what you need. Whether it’s a boss, co-worker, spouse or friend, if you feel frustrated, overwhelmed or resentful of the relationship it is usually because you are not asking enough of the relationship. People are not mind readers, and they miss subtle cues.

How can you practice courage? Be specific about what your unmet expectations are, “Would you please do x by y?” If you are allowing others to encroach on your personal boundaries, you are complicit in it. Set boundaries — and be clear about what you can’t tolerate. “When you x, I feel y.” Don’t try to be all things to all people. “I’m sorry, I’m not available to help you with x today.”

No need to act in an aggressive or entitled way to get what you want. Courage is a manner of conveying that you know your worth, and while you may not always get what you asked for, you will command more respect than if you had not been bold enough to make your request.

Every day you have the opportunity to be a better you. This doesn’t mean huge changes all at once. Small changes over time guarantees steady personal growth.  These changes include dropping excuses and living up to mistakes, letting go of anger, listening to others (really listening), practicing kindness and being open to change.  Believe in yourself and know that whatever situation you are in, you have life-changing growth potential.

Monday Motivation: How to get good advice.

May 2nd, 2016 by

pablo (13)
Why are most of us willing to take advice from anyone? Friends, family and neighbors mean well (usually) but would you seek advice from a friend about money who doesn’t have money? Would you seek advice from a neighbor about health who is morbidly obese? Would you seek advice from a family member about a relationship who struggles with relationships?

Motivate yourself to seek out people who will give you the right advice. It takes extra effort because they may not be the people who surround you.  Two rules of thumb:

1. Carefully evaluate advice from someone who doesn’t have to live with the possible consequences.

2. Think seriously about the advice from someone who you wouldn’t trade places with on the matter.

Monday Motivation: Strong to the finish!

April 25th, 2016 by

Do you have a habit of committing to things, but not finishing them? While getting started is the first step to something great, many of us get stuck on the second step … thinking but not doing. Seldom do we consider the challenges that were not visible when we first started toward a goal.  However, a goal without commitment will never be reached unless you take action to overcome those challenges.

Where have you dropped your commitment?  What one action can you take today to pick it up?
