What Color is This?
Leading an Organization is like raising a puppy ....
I say that knowing that many people do not know what they are doing when they are raising their puppy.
Who do I choose to be at this time?
Is it time to turn myself inside out and surrender?
If the only thing you want to do is make a lot of money, I do not want to work with you.
Saying yes to yourself often means saying no to others
I’m too magical for all that bullshit
Leaders–Are you connected to your organization? Five steps to improving the C-Suite Line of Sight
"Dr. Albert Edward Wiggam, author of Marks of a Clear Mind and other books on the mind, called your mental picture of yourself “the strongest force within you.”"
The present and the future depend on learning new habits and new ways of looking at old problems. There simply isn’t any future in digging continually into the past."
From Psycho-Cybernetics: Updated and Expanded" by Maxwell Maltz and wanted to share this quote with you. "What is role-playing? Well it is simply imagining yourself in various sales situations, then solving them in your mind, until you know what to say and what to do whenever the situations come up in real life."

“Dr. William Osler, author of A Way of Life, said that one simple habit, which could be formed like any other habit, was the sole secret of his happiness and success in life. Live life in “day-tight compartments,” he advised his students. Look neither forward nor backward beyond a 24-hour cycle. Live today as best you can. By living today well you do the most within your power to make tomorrow better.”

Failure is simply a judgment placed on a result.
The real problem lies with how we THINK and FEEL about failure.
If you fail and attach emotional meaning to that failure, it will trigger a core belief about yourself.
You may even say things to yourself like:
“I’m not smart enough, I’m never going to succeed, I can’t believe this isn’t working, what’s wrong with me?”
“My parents were right…”
“ I don’t even know why I bother…”
This is how the downward spiral starts.
The truth is that failure is nothing more than a result.
And the purpose of that result is for our own learning.
Begin to see failure
as a GIFT.
What don’t I understand about this?
Who do I need to be to get a different result?
The most successful people in the world have experienced more failure than success.
After all, your own success lies in the ability to respond to results… to course correct and take risks in order to get different results without attaching emotions.
We think we argue over ideas. But we actually argue over emotion. Anytime there’s a conflict, someone’s feelings were hurt. Somebody felt abused. Somebody felt slighted. It’s not the idea that causes the conflict. It’s the emotion behind the idea.
Hurt people hurt people. The more people are hurting, the more they lash out at everybody else. People who aren’t hurting don’t hurt others. People who are filled with love are loving toward others. People who are filled with joy are joyful to others. People who are filled with peace are at peace with everybody else. But people who are hurting inside are going to hurt others. They’re going to lash out.
If you want to connect with people, you must start with their needs, their hurts, and their interests. If you want to be a good salesperson, you don’t start with your product. You start with your customer’s need, hurts, and interests. If you want to be a good professor or pastor or anything else, you start with people’s needs, hurts, and interests.
Philippians 2:4-5 says, “Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had” (NLT).
Are you often so busy trying to get the people you’re in conflict with to see your position that you’re not listening to theirs? You’re too busy speaking and not listening, so you move further and further away.
You need to intentionally switch your focus from your needs to their needs. Conflict resolution starts with the way you look at the situation. The word “look” in Philippians 2:4 is the Greek word scopos. It’s where we get our words “microscope” and “telescope.”
Scopos means to focus. The next verse says your attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ. You are most like Jesus when you’re focusing on the hurts of somebody else rather than your own.
There’s an old Proverb that says, “Seek to understand before seeking to be understood.” When you’re focused on the other person’s needs and not your own, you’ll be able to get a better understanding of the situation and move forward with resolving your conflict. (Rick Warren)
