Thought of the week- Silencing The Enemy Within

 

We live in an ever increasingly competitive world. New threats seemingly pop up daily and old competitors are  re surfacing with retooled value propositions, all eager to take your business.

You can classify your competitors as the enemy but from my perspective and my thought of the week is that our biggest emery lives within. How many times have you talked yourself in to a bad situation or paralyzed yourself, doubting yourself, from making the needed decision?

It is important that to fulfill our fullest potential we have to acknowledge the power our inner thoughts have to impact our success. If your internal voice is telling you that you are no good, not worthy, don’t think big enough, others are better, smarter, quicker, or simply you are not worthy then that is a competitor you can not beat.

Moving forward, it is vital that we all realize that there is no easy path but we deserve to be on the path as much as anyone else. Don’t allow your inner insecurities and fears to pre determine the outcome. You control your destiny and it starts with silencing the enemy within. 

Onwards!

Thought of the Week – inspire

Thought of the Week – Inspire 

My thought this week is simple to state but takes great effort to achieve. Go out and inspire those you interact with. Be a force for good and leave every interaction with the person being valued, listened to and motivated to do great things. If we achieve this regularly we make all better. Give some thought to the footprint you are leaving. Make it a positive one. Onwards! Dh

Thought of the Week- Separate What Offends You With What Affects You!

In life we are presented with a dazzling array of things that offend us. Regrettably the list grows by the hour. However, as the saying goes “if you care about everything, you stand for nothing”.

My thought of the week is that in business and in life it is important that we first distinguish those things that offend you from those things that affect you. My suggestion is that we all need to simply let go of the things that offend but do not affect us. We need to use our limited energy to work on the things that affect us. We must realize that there will always be hate mongers, people who wish to divide us and the unscrupulous who want to sow havoc. Don’t let them live rent free in your head rather bring focus to the things that truly affect you and you care about and let go of the rest.

Onwards!

Thought of the Week- Getting Better

Oftentimes, as leaders, we spend a lot of our time insuring that the company is improving, that the team are getting better and anyone is pulling in unison and delivering results.

However, at times we are too focused on driving results that we miss the opportunity of an important element of leadership; personal development. My thought of the week is that as leaders we need to be asking our team what can we do to do better and how we can personally do a better job? Don’t let your title get in the way of believing you have all the answers. The feedback can make a real difference if we listen and then act to improve. The reality is that if you are not aware of your opportunity areas you can not improve them. Ask, evolve and get better.

Onwards!
Dh

Thought of the Week- Mouthbreathers Should Be Set Free

There is simply too many mouth breathers and much negativity, anger, jealously and outright hatred in the world.

My thought of the week is that we need to set the mouth breathers free. Take a moment and review how you represent yourself? Are you positive, upbeat and encouraging in your daily interactions? And just as important if you have nothing positive to say, do you do just that.

Onwards!
Dh
