Are you living your life on purpose or do you spend most of your time reacting? If you’ve ever looked at your caller ID, only to see a number that makes your stomach drop, you are reacting. If you have ever seen someone walking down the hall and you consciously chose to avoid this person, you are reacting. Life is full of emotional and potentially stressful situations. How we respond to those situations as they arise has a profound an effect on our productivity, relationships, and health.
I’d like to introduce you to a concept I’ve come up with called “Mind Over Moment”. Basically this means you make small choices, micro-decisions, throughout the course of your day to achieve the life you want. Now that sounds like common sense, but common sense isn’t always common practice. Where do you want to change your life? Here’s an example of how this might play out.
While we have all seen the headlines, what we don’t hear are the stories of the millions of non-celebrities suffering. The only thing worse than struggling with a mental health issue is trying to convince people it’s real. I share our story and ways that you can help yourself and others as a way to let people know they are not alone.
What is the number one reason people feel dissatisfied or leave their job? Contrary to popular belief, it’s not advancement opportunities, it’s not money, it’s not even an inability to do the job. The number one reason people leave or feel dissatisfied at work is their relationship with their immediate supervisor. So what do you do when you want to keep your job but don’t want to lose your sanity?
Most of us stop ourselves from succeeding. And it’s not that we don’t have grit, and it’s not that we don’t want to persevere, it’s that we let ourselves get trapped instead of breaking through to become what we can truly be! Until we release our potential and until you fail a few times, you won’t know what that is.
