TODAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA: Present.

TODAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA: Present. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

The present, the magic moment of life!


Today and now is the first day of our new life. It’s a phrase I heard repeatedly during my life and sometimes I have to remind me to think about it.


All we can do, change and live everyday, is this moment unique where is decided to our present and our future. I like to think that we are writing our book of life, our successes and our happiness, it gives me an incredible sense of freedom and a feeling that everything is possible.


“Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.” Mary Kay Ash


As a leader, we know that things are happening now and that all decisions and actions we do will change our present and our future and that, this is the best way forward and achieve our goals with our team.

TODAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA: Tenacity.

TODAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA: Tenacity. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Tenacity, a word that can take us very far!


It is an attitude that I used very often in my life and, of course I use it always. Without it, I would have given up many times when I was near the goal, with, probably, some regrets later. But we must distinguish between tenacity and stubbornness. If the first leads most often to the summits, the second would tend to lead us to the disappointment or failure.


In this spirit, what Mia Hamm said is very true:


“I’ve worked too hard and too long to let anything stand in the way of my goals. I will not let my teammates down and I will not let myself down.”


As a leader, we know the difference between tenacity and stubbornness, and we use it wisely to advance, while showing to our team that this attitude makes the difference on the road to success.

7 Reasons Why a Lifestyle Business is Better

7 Reasons Why a Lifestyle Business is Better | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

I can live anywhere because of my business, although I choose to live in the Alaska of Europe right now, which is weird.

 

I haven’t figured this one out yet.

 

But I think it has something to do with me becoming a father next month, and being close to family is always nice.

 

Ever since I was 18, I’ve always had my goals set on being able to do anything, from anywhere, and at any time.

 

I began playing poker right out of school at 18. I could take my work anywhere, as long as I had an internet connection and a computer.

How to Believe You Can Do Anything

How to Believe You Can Do Anything | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

The phrase “You can do it if you just believe” has become so watered down to the point that people just roll their eyes when they hear it. They’ve tried it and it just doesn’t work for them.

 

Here are just a few quotes on the subject.

 

“To succeed, we must first believe that we can.” - Michael Korda

 

“Your belief determines your action and your action determines your results, but first you have to believe.” -Mark Victor Hansen

 

“Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve." - Mary Kay Ash

How To Discover the Greatness Within

How To Discover the Greatness Within | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Within all human beings, no matter what part of the world they’re from, what their environment has been, what culture they come from, what their religious tradition is, there lives a certain kind of greatness. Everyone knows that this greatness lives within them. We call it different things, but the bottom line is that we all have a central wish to be as good, true, kind, and as profitable a human being that we can be. It’s in our very DNA. And that divine code if you will, is the same in every human being. We just dress it differently.

 

Within every individual there lives a wish to embody something grand, beautiful, kind, true, and loving. None of us – no matter where you go in the world – can escape the need we have to realize the truth of ourselves...

Four Procrastination Myths Debunked

Four Procrastination Myths Debunked | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
This article debunks four common procrastination myths we often tell ourselves in order to avoid doing the hard work that needs to be done.

 

There are less than one hundred days left in 2011.
If you have a backlog of projects that you meant to work on this year, but which you haven’t gotten around to, it’s very likely that procrastination is the culprit.


Timothy Pychyl, Ph.D., creator of the popular web site procrastination.ca, is one of the world’s foremost experts on procrastination. Dr. Pychyl defines procrastination as “the needless, often irrational, voluntary delay of an intended task”. That is, you intend to work on a task but you go off and start working on something else which you know is not as important, and which doesn’t need to get done right away...

Social Bankruptcy

Social Bankruptcy | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

An extraordinary article that goes to the bottom of the "looking good" style, who prevailing in the social media area as also in the real life today. The only thing that seems to matter now is the volume, and this, at the expense of quality. Steve Pavlina gives us his version who I personally find very interesting. [note Martin Gysler]


For the past several months, I’ve been going through a social reboot. This involves consciously reassessing my social life and deciding what connections and social habits to maintain and what to change.


But this year I’ve decided to go further with this process and declare outright social bankruptcy. This is an area of my life that was far enough off track that changing it for the better is closer to starting over from scratch than making modifications to an existing structure. It’s more analogous to changing careers than it is to tweaking an existing career.


I could see that my social life was becoming exceedingly unbalanced. It was a source of many stimulating connections, but the overall big picture wasn’t working very well.

Enter; The Dragon

Enter; The Dragon | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Freedom and Pre-Natal Chi


Having more than a little curiosity about Eastern ways, and a bigger mouth than the [river] Clyde for questions, I’ve delved where few dare tread.


You see, since a young child I’ve asked crazy/ difficult/ challenging questions of my parents, my peers and in fact, anyone who crossed my path – much to my dearest friends’ consternation at times!


Born in the year of the Wood Dragon and under the sign of Aries my parent’s must’ve thought they’d created a monster! I was stubborn and determined as a very small child; I still have memories of refusing wholesome food in favour of sweets and biscuits. I’m sure my Mum and sisters were sorely irritated by me.


It wasn’t until much later on as I learned more about my energy that I began to consider chi; the potential we have and the impacts of using it.


So, Chi – what is it?

The Happiness Project: 8 Tips to Stop Procrastinating.

The Happiness Project: 8 Tips to Stop Procrastinating. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Every Wednesday is Tip Day. This Wednesday: Eight tips to stop procrastinating, and get yourself to do something you don't want to do.

 

How many times each day do you try to work yourself up to tackle some undesirable task? If you’re like me – several. Nothing is more exhausting than the task that is never started, so I've come up with some tricks to use on myself, to prod myself to get started:

 

1. Put yourself in jail. If I feel pressure to jump in and finish something in a rush, and therefore can't bear to start, sometimes I put myself in jail. If you're in jail, you have all the time in the world. You have no reason to hurry, no reason to cut corners or to try to do too many things at once. You can slow down, concentrate. You can take the time to get every single detail right.

 

2. Ask for help. This is one of my most useful Secrets of Adulthood. Why is this so hard? I have no idea. But whenever I have trouble getting started because I don't know exactly what to do, and I ask for help, I'm amazed at how much it...helps...

How to Set Yourself on the "Right" Path

How to Set Yourself on the "Right" Path | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

A few years ago, I stumbled on a letter I wrote to my future self when I was 15. I’ll spare you the bad writing but, it was frustrating to see how far I had strayed from the plan.


I hadn’t moved to Australia, I wasn’t an architect. I wasn’t rich and I wasn’t travelling 6 months a year.

 

In the eyes of 15 year old me, I was a failure, yet, I had done many other things.

 

Turns out, John Lennon had it right…
Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.

 

Although I had done other things and made progress in other ways, I had lost track of what my ambition wanted me to achieve...

How to Not Change a Habit: 7 Common Mistakes

How to Not Change a Habit: 7 Common Mistakes | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

“First we make our habits, then our habits make us.” Charles C. Noble

 

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” Jim Rohn

 

Changing a habit is something very powerful that you can do for yourself and for others.

 

But it’s often not an easy thing to do. It becomes even harder to change when you make what I believe are some common mistakes. I have at least made them quite a few times.

 

So I hope you’ll find something helpful in this article. Something that will make it at least a bit easier to change your habits and to making a lasting change in your life...
