Share Some Confidence

If you’ve ever read or heard another person’s story and it inspired you to take action where you had previously been stalled, you borrowed a bit of confidence. While you eventually needed to build your own confidence, in the short term you could ride on the tail of an individual’s triumph over a challenge.

I can tell you, from first hand experience, that learning about others’ tales, of turning obstacles into a success, was a lifeline for me in one of the most difficult times in my life. I will be eternally grateful.

So, what’s your story? Who can you encourage by sharing it? Do so and you share a bit of confidence in the process.

Have a great day,
Anita

Success Engagement

If you are like me, you find something you want to learn about and dive deeply into finding the person who can help you. My enthusiasm can take over and I need to remind myself that the person is an actual human being – way more than just a conduit to the resources and information I want and need.

When you authentically demonstrate that you value the other person – with care, respect, and appreciation – your opportunities can expand exponentially and you will feel wonderful in the process.

Have a great day,
Anita

Trust Behavior

Some people are really good at getting their points across with powerful words, great enthusiasm, and even big smiles. While this is great, it doesn’t tell the whole story. Even more important is a person’s behavior – over time and especially when no one is watching.

Trust a person’s actions more than their words. The best of all words is that their heart and mind play out in both words and actions.

Warmly,
Anita

The Success Block You Can’t Afford

If you aren’t achieving your goals, what could be the problem? While the source of your stalling out could be a variety of things, the one I see most prevalent today is resentment.

Now this doesn’t have to be gigantic grudges. Actually those are the easy to identify and correct since they are so obvious to you and those around you. The resentment that does the most damage to you, you life, and even your finances are the small, subtle forms that creep in as tiny negative comments about another person (or even many people) – especially behind the person’s back.

Instead of letting this nasty talk prevail, make yourself find at least one thing you value about the person and change complaint into appreciation. As corny as this may sound, I can almost guarantee that you will feel better and prospects in your career and life will grow.

Experiment and see for yourself.

Warmly,
Anita

Let Others Help You Succeed

I was chatting with a friend in Europe who has a venture capital firm that works with mission-focused startups to help them grow. Recently, he came to the conclusion that he was working all of the time and needed help. So he asked for assistance and now has a whole fleet of people (of all ages) who can deliver projects and programs. The individuals gain experience and money and my friend has talented people to expand his companies and positive impact.

Let others help you succeed, too.

Warmly,
Anita

Sticky Connections

When I think of stick connections, I am not talking about a USB drive that someone touches after eating salt water taffy. I am referred to the relationships we build that are engaged, mutually beneficial, and lasting. They take care, kindness, and value.

Having those sticky connections can be the difference between a mediocre life and one that is spectacular. So build them early and often.

Have a wonderful day
