Be inspired, uplifted and impacted!

Every day is another opportunity to work towards your dreams and goals. Often we have the misguided impression that external things are stopping us from getting where we want to. But in reality the greatest hindrance is still us. Our fears, anxieties, self-doubt or negative thoughts stop us from tapping into our full potential and stepping out of our comfort zone. We sometimes get consumed by what others might think about us to the extent that we convince ourselves that the safest place is as "part of the masses" or "under the radar".

 

I, therefore, challenge you to ask yourself this question:

"Would I rather look back at my life and say 'I have done it all and achieved it all' or 'I played it safe like everybody else'?"

Remember to breathe

Breathing seems like one of the most trivial and basic things in life. Not something you need to learn or be conscious of but simply do. But like so many things, breathing is also something we need to learn or re-learn because we don't realize how often we "hold our breaths" in moments we should be breathing. 

How the story ends

Another year has come and gone. I don't know what you conquered, achieved or succeeded in last year, but I'm sure you also had some quiet moments when you didn't feel victorious at all. Moments you questioned yourself and wondered how things would end. The good news is, you're still here and not at the point of no return yet. Your story continues and can still be written the way you wanted to it to end.

Get in the zone!

A colleague of mine is responsible for writing all the creative and promotional content at my company. So, one day I asked her about her creative process. How was she able to focus and create new and exciting content all the time? Her answer was: "Sometimes I lock myself away in a quiet room for some hours and write. Other times I just stay home, so I can write and be creative without any distractions - all by myself!" Didn't sound like a magic formula or an amazing new method.

Who is to blame?

When something goes wrong, or there is a crisis, what is the initial reaction? Resolution? Conflict management? Is a meeting called to gather ideas for problem-solving? All of the above? Not really. Usually, the first reaction is to look for who is to blame for what went wrong. Not that it would make the problem go away, reduce the urgency of fixing it or help in resolving the issue. Most of the time it is the exact opposite.
