As you know, the most self-confidenced people don't fear anything: tehy trust themselves.
John Lasschuit ®™'s curator insight, July 7, 2013 4:37 PM

This is the ultimate truth: people who are very self-confidenced don't fear much: they have trust in themselves. And because of that, they easily trust others.

Tiffany Crosby's curator insight, June 9, 2013 6:23 PM

I'm also an advocate of scheduling nothing, especially soon after you've returned from a training event. Use that time to reflect back on your training and how well you've incorporated new behaviors. Use it to set goals for the upcoming week on how you will continue to grow on those new behaviors. Change takes time. Purposeful time.

John Michel's curator insight, June 19, 2013 5:19 AM

The most important reason to schedule buffers is to just catch your breath. There is no faster way to feel as though your day is not your own, and that you are no longer in control, than scheduling meetings back to back from the minute you arrive at the office until the moment you leave. I’ve felt the effects of this and seen it with colleagues. Not only is it not fun to feel this way, it’s not sustainable.

Equipping Young Leaders to Change the World [Video]

Equipping Young Leaders to Change the World [Video] | Positive futures | Scoop.it

What happens when you take two of the most energetic, passionate people ever and get them talking about equipping young leaders to change the world right now, today? Well, it’s a lot like throwing gasoline on a fire – all in a really, really good way.

You probably already know and love Angela Maiers from her viral Tedx talk, You Matter. She is an educator who says she never realized others saw her as a leader until companies began hiring her to bring her lessons from the classroom to transform their companies. But with her frequent appearances on HuffPost Live and her very recent addition to our own League of Extraordinary Thinkers, hopefully she’s getting the hint.

Excellent - and an interesting new TV channel worth following.

In this continuing series on Global Problems, we've  identified  four major areas of  concern that if left unresolved could spell disaster for  humanity. These  include war and its weapons, food  and  water shortages, injustice and failed government.  In this   installment, we'll focus on injustice: something that touches everyone at  some point in  life.

Ode to empathy

Ode to empathy | Positive futures | Scoop.it
With the emergence of a global civilization, we need to move beyond the “us and them” mentality that lends itself to so much conflict, violence, and self-destruction. An absolutely essential ingredient for this is empathy.

 

Here are just a few more extremely interesting ideas that are changing the way we think about our species:

Roman Krznaric’s concept of Outrospection, the act of learning more about ourselves and our world by empathizing with others, and “The Six Habits of Highly Empathic People”;Charles Eisenstein’s ideas about an expanded sense of self explained in his books, Ascent of Humanity and Sacred Economics;Non-Violent Communication, developed by Marshall Rosenberg (we even have a newly-formed local Non-Violent Communication team here in Athens, Greece); andScilla Elworthy’s powerful Ted Talk about fighting with non-violence.

Also, more and more organizations centered around empathy, compassion, altruism and generosity are popping up all the time. Here are just a few: Greater Good, Roots of Empathy, Center for Building a Culture of Empathy, Random Acts of Kindness, Charter for Compassion, The Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education (not to mention all of the talk and action around sharing and gift economies, like the Post Growth Institute’s Free Money Day.)  by Jen Hinton,

5 Things to Do When You Feel Insecure

5 Things to Do When You Feel Insecure | Positive futures | Scoop.it

"German psychoanalyst Eric Fromm said, “The task we must set for ourselves is not to feel secure, but to be able to tolerate insecurity.”

Everyone I have ever known — I take that back — every likableperson I have ever known in this world has admitted to periods of sheer insecurity. They looked at themselves from the perspective of someone else — perhaps a person with no appreciation of their talents, personality traits, abilities—and judged themselves unfairly according to the perverted view."
