Honor the Past Create the Future

Honor the Past Create the Future

It is important to honor the past, our memories, our relationships, our experiences.  They have shaped who we are today for good or ill.  Remember that nobody is perfect.  Even a parent or a friend that had once said or done something that hurt you are also dealing with issues from their own past which has shaped them and issues that you may not be privy to.  Honor them for being in your life and for the good that they have brought to you over the years.  Keep in mind that how we deal with the past, affects our present and our future.  Use the past as a history book that teach you lessons you may not have learned any other way, than by experiencing them.

Turn Conflict into Powerful Collaboration

There is a misconception in collaboration studies that conflict will tear businesses apart and halt the cogs of progress at a company.  In fact, conflict can be a source for new ideas, new energy and a source for powerful and transformative change. The kind of conflict I am speaking about is “creative conflict” rather than “interpersonal conflict.”  Personal attacks are not beneficial, but methodologies, tasks, and many more concepts that relate to the business and work at hand are fair game to be dismantled, attacked and rebuilt anew.

Importance of Patience

Everything you see and read extols the benefits of getting things immediately and with as little work as possible. Take cleaning clothes as a banal example. It is fast to pop them in the washer and dryer today, taking a maximum of 60 minutes to complete.

However, for thousands of years, washing clothes may have taken half a day to physically wash each garment and hang them on a clothesline to dry. Imagine the patience someone would have needed to accomplish the task.

Art of Attraction

There is a growing body of scientific work that backs up the belief that we are all connected, as if there were giant magnets that pull us and push us together or away. At the basic level of science, we know that all things are energy. Matter is energy. Our bodies are energy. Our thoughts evoke great energy. By focusing on your target or goal, you can will it into existence. Of course, it takes more than just thought. Most of the time it requires great effort and work to achieve these goals.

Develop yourself as the Offer

What if we thought in terms of developing ourselves as the offer or the product? We consciously market ourselves in every way. We learn what it takes to be the best self and do whatever it takes to achieve it. As you know, the person with the most valuable offer that connects with their audience often gets the best jobs, makes the most sales, and climbs the ladder of success faster. Our offer affects our personal and professional life. When we consciously develop ourselves we are in charge of who and what we attract. However, in order to create our unique offer we need to achieve two critical things.

Take A Victory Lap

Last week the Miami Heat became the NBA champions for the second straight season. It is the third straight season where they reached the finals. In the weeks and months ahead they will be paraded around Miami, on sports talk shows, and eventually culminate with an elaborate ring ceremony. However, taking a “victory lap” should not just be for sports heroes. You can celebrate your own victories.  It is the reward for all of your own hard work and the contributions of many others.

Cultivating Professional Relationships

How do you get a relationship from point A to point B in the most efficient manner possible?  Communication is the key. And by communication, I am talking about asking good questions and listening far more than speaking. We are accustomed as sales people to sell, sell, and sell. Always be closing. And that often means that we take the initiative and give them an avalanche of positives to take away from our short sales meeting or call. However, if we want to take a business relationship to another level we need to nurture it with powerful communication that will resonate with them long after we have left the room, or hung up the phone.
