Team Efforts; Work for It; Marrying the Right Person – Week of May 8, 2016 Posts

Being a team takes effort. Being overly sensitive hinders a good team. We need emotional intelligence. Sometimes we have to give each other a pass. Team work requires patience and understanding. We need to develop the ability to sense and understand, and effectively apply the power and acumen of emotions to facilitate high levels of collaboration and productivity.

From my weekly business meeting.

Don’t be upset for the result you didn’t get because you didn’t do the work for it. Pretty simple.

Marrying the Right Person Makes You More Successful

We will never always be motivated. We have to learn to be disciplined. I heard in a spiritual talk many years ago that action breeds motivation and motivation moves us to action. They work with each other. That has proven true over the years in almost every aspect of my life, including my home business.

 

We have two ears and one mouth. When we use them in that proportion, our interactions with people are much better quality. Did you know that CEO’s now are hiring specialists to teach what is becoming a lost art — the art of listening.

 

Action Changes Things. ACT!

 

Warm up to open up.

To become ‘interesting’ you must become ‘interested’. Talk less, listen more. Don’t ‘fake’ interest, ‘take’ interest. — Don Carmont

From my weekly business call.

 

One of the happiest moments is when you feel the courage to let go of what you can’t change. We tend to hang on long after someone has stopped engaging, rather than meet them where they stand. We all need to be willing to “bless and release”. Trying to do things for others that they need to do for themselves is just trying to give them a crutch that doesn’t work. We think we’re helping, but we’re not, because they’re not learning to do it themselves.

This is from my Monday business call. It’s amazing how much these things apply to so many different aspects of our lives, not just our businesses where we are mentoring and coaching people, and helping them to find ways to a better lifestyle.

 

Success is when opportunity meets preparedness.

 

Keep the momentum. Prepare for activity. Time slips away so fast. Can you believe it’s already the first week of May!

 

“The trouble is, you think you have time.” — Buddha

 

Let’s start where we stand. Let’s accept where we are right now and be grateful. Simply take a step; accept. Repeat. That’s what progress is.
