Happiness is most readily achieved in community

Happiness is most readily achieved in community | Mid-Week Mentor | Scoop.it

Happiness, like friendship, trust, altruism, virtue, enduring values and real relationships, is most readily achieved in community, and in an age when face-to-face communities are elsewhere in steep decline, in houses of worship they are still strong.

 

So ignore the world of brands and bling, and consider joining a religious congregation. Unlike the culture of glossy surfaces and glittering superficiality, it’s the real thing.

Take Ownership of Your Life in Four Steps

Take Ownership of Your Life in Four Steps | Mid-Week Mentor | Scoop.it
When we give up ownership of our lives, we give up control. In this guest post, Anne-Sophie Reinhardt provides four steps for getting it back.

 

“Remember, ultimately you are in control of your workout! I can motivate you to push harder. I can try to keep you from giving up, but in the end, it’s all up to you.”

 

This statement of our cycling instructor stuck with me because I see people give up control over crucial areas of their lives all the time.This lack of ownership reaches from personal health to thriving in our jobs and the level of destruction we create is often not realized until it is too late.

 

When I gave my eating disorder power over me, I stopped functioning, lost myself, and almost my life. When my brother beat me up over and over again for years, I resigned and stopped fighting. When I worked for Starbucks, I gave my boss the power to decide how much money I could make any given month.

 

Three completely distinct areas of a life. Three ways of giving up control.

Where Should You Spend More Time?

 

 

You get caught up in the busyness of the day-to-day.

 

You say you don’t have enough time.

 

Yet, the question isn’t where are you spending your time…

Leadership: Is Too Much Expected of Me?

Leadership: Is Too Much Expected of Me? | Mid-Week Mentor | Scoop.it
 In order to succeed, we need to slow it down. We need to expect less from ourselves and be okay with it. We need to help others see that less is more.  

 

Business is not local or national any more, but worldwide. The internet and social media keeps us connected constantly. Nothing is private and most of us are dancing through hoops to keep up with the demand. 
 
So if too much is expected of us, I say: 

Stop. 

Get off the treadmill. 

Do less. 

Decrease the sound.
