What is important to you and how do others know this?
Most likely this question will catch many of us off guard and find us unable to instantaneously offer an answer such as…
Clarity • Simplicity • Focus • Execution
This is why following the herd (the rat race) and going through the motions is dangerous.
Think for yourself and have it down cold – because it’s who you are (at your core).
Take what you are given and do one thing with it.
Make it amazing. Make it yours. Own it.
The only two things that will ensure personal change:
1. Self awareness.
2. Unrelenting pain, of any origin.
Deep, but simple. Try reading it again.
Caring about the opinions of others makes us a prisoner in our own psyche.
Awaken each day with gratitude and forgiveness. Use these two the way we use oxygen.
This path never leads to failure.
Even in business.
We all have blind spots. You know, stuff everyone else can easily see about us that we are clueless to.
As a professional speaker, the classic example is the keynote speaker who says, “Um” so many times in their speech that you start counting, just to see what a ridiculously high number it will be.
Last night, a consultant I’ve been traveling with said, “You know what I’ve noticed about you? You’ll talk to anyone.”
Blind spots are almost always stereotyped as negative. Guess that’s a big blind spot for all of us.
