Become The Type Of Person Your Dog Thinks You Are

Does your career, and more importantly, your leadership style, have a check engine light?

What are you working on that will make a difference in how others perceive you?

What are you working on that, unknowingly, doesn’t matter at all?

How do we tell the difference?

Excellence is a habit, not something we stumble upon.

What Are You Waiting For?

The focus here is on each human’s contribution to society. Every ant in the ant colony, and every bee in the bee hive has a contribution.

Same with humans. Society, generally speaking, pays us for our contribution.

You can make the french fries, you can manage the restaurant, or you can own the franchise. Society pays you accordingly. More isn’t always better. Be careful what you wish for.

Leadership, vision, balance, continuous improvement, conflict, adversity, courage, tenacity are just a few of the themes here. Did I mention courage?

Did I mention organizational skills?

What’s Your Big Dream?

Where Do You Stand?
Where Do You Stand?

Do you feel like quitting, giving up, or at the very least, backing down from reaching high?

Two of our most common feelings are:

  1. Dreaming Big Dreams
  2. Quitting because of the obstacles

So today’s thought for you to ponder, “What’s your big dream?”

And, “Are you still passionate about it or have you given up?”

Do You Follow Your Instincts?

This excerpt is from a Speakers and Panelist LinkedIn Group Member, Stephen J Stulic. Relevant and powerful:

“Seek and Welcome Opportunities That Move You Closer To Realizing Your Full Potential.

Be ready when opportunity knocks. And sometimes, by taking strategic advantage of several small opportunities, you may move closer to realizing your full potential more quickly than waiting for one big one to come along.

Therefore, do not be content to wait for a single opportunity to be all that you want it to be; they come in all shapes and sizes and quite often come disguised as something you would not normally expect.

A person truly centered in understanding what he wants will make more opportunities than he finds.

So, when any opportunity to become more is presented to you, be prepared to make the most of it and take action.

Follow your instincts; there is nothing more discouraging than waiting back on your heels as an opportunity ceases to be one.”

Bet You Have It Too

Far Away?
Far Away?

Passion.  Bet you have a ton of passion.

Maybe you’re in a job where your passion thrives. Maybe you’re not.

Does passion make for a better worker?

Do you do your best work around something you’re passionate about?

How many leaders are in positions that got them a better title, a better paycheck, better meetings, and better perks, but took them further from their passion?

And then there are people who have found their passion, their dream job, but over the years they have allowed things beyond their control to poison themselves.

Imagine your own situation.
