Self Development Tips

Self Development Tips | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
As long as you are still alive, you are capable of changing and growing. You can do anything you want to do, be anything you want to be. Listen to some positive thoughts on how to continue your self development and then apply them in your own life.


  • Accept personal responsibility for your own growth; no one can do it for you. What you do today will determine your readiness for tomorrow.
  • Take time every day to do something for yourself.
  • Take classes to stay current in your field of expertise. The world is changing rapidly and you must learn to manage change to avoid obsolescence. The way Will Rogers put this was that "Even if you are on the right track, if you just sit there you will get run over."

Leadership Mantra: Noise.

Leadership Mantra: Noise. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

This noise who changing our life.


About what noise are we talking about here? There is talk about the discontinuous noise in our head, which is an integral part of our daily live.


Have you ever paid attention, if so, what was his tone? It was a pleasant tone, beautiful, positive or rather, unpleasant, ugly and negative?


Here, you can imagine, is the big difference.


Why am I talking about this today? Just because our attitude is dictated by this dialogue. If you are in the unpleasant and negative plan, it goes without saying that it will be difficult for you, to have a full and balanced life – which should ultimately be the goal of all of us.

Leadership mantra : Faith

Leadership mantra : Faith | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
Faith or the certainty of its capacity to move towards success. 


You know those days when nothing or very little work or we wonder what we did in the world to be in this situation!


During these phases, doubt and despondency can settle transiently, see permanent for some. It is in these moments that faith in our abilities and our values of life becomes important and makes the difference.


“A man of courage is also full of faith.” Marcus Tullius Cicero


Even if faith does not avoid completely doubt, it contributes significantly to the restoration of tranquility, which is more rapid, and largely reduces the frequency of doubts.

Commitment always makes the difference between success and failure.

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.

Today I want to tell you about a subject that has always held an important place in my heart and this, since my childhood. Yes, I have always been competition oriented. In everything I did, I wanted to be first, what which, as you can imagine, has no been always the case.


It is always the case today, but, it’s no longer in the same way. If in my childhood, it was to win the football, ice hockey game or another competitions like this; today it’s rather more in philosophical activities (…) where I want to have the nose in front!

The Nine Ways to Guarantee Success

The Nine Ways to Guarantee Success | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

I really blew it and everyone knows it. I was even asked to speak at some conference about Failure on I think June 13. I might’ve deluded myself into thinking I’m the keynote speaker. But I might just be on a panel. I don’t know. Hopefullly I won’t fail at it. But if I do I hope you can all come and watch it happen in slow motion. By the way, my favorite technique in public speaking is to slightly slur my words but that’s another post.

 

I’m like Dr. Failure. I know exactly what you need to do if you want your wife to hate you, if you want to get thrown out of school, if you want to lose your investors $100 million. If you want to lose your home, and so on.

 

1/16 of the time people are happy. The rest of the time they are unhappy. So if you start to avoid all the things that cause unhappiness then maybe there’s a small chance you can improve the ratios in your favor...

10 Secrets of Successful Leaders

10 Secrets of Successful Leaders | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “A good leader inspires people to have confidence in the leader, a great leader inspires people to have confidence in themselves.” But, becoming a great leader isn’t easy. Successfully maneuvering a team through the ups and downs of starting a new business can be one of the greatest challenges a small-business owner faces.

 

Leadership is one of the areas that many entrepreneurs tend to overlook, according leadership coach John C. Maxwell, whose books include The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership (Thomas Nelson, 1998) and Developing the Leader Within You (Thomas Nelson, 1993).

 

“You work hard to develop your product or service. You fight to solve your financial issues. You go out and promote your business and sell your product. But you don't think enough about leading your own people and finding the best staff,” Maxwell says...

For the simple reason that the potential has remained unrealized and unused, because there never was any concrete action.

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.

SUNDAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA: Goal.

SUNDAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA: Goal. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it
Everyone wants to be successful and, some people would do all to achieve it (...).

A good tool for success is certainly, the goal. As Brian Tracy say:


Goals are the fuel in the furnace of achievement” Brian Tracy


what makes me say that this topic is sufficiently interesting and important to linger a bit.


All of these goals that will lead us to success!


Introduction


Beyond the basics of goal that he should be SMART: Simple and Specific | Measurable | Achievable | Realistic | Time limited and which is known to most of us, I would like add the emotional meaning of the subject.


Indeed, the act of setting goals is often linked to an emotional process:

  • From needs who are deepest in us;
  • an ambition to be this or that;
  • Or an ego, oversized, who plays tricks on us;

and many other factors.


All these elements combined can significantly change the logic of things and lead us sometimes on unsafe paths and strewn with pitfalls.


When should we have a goal?...

Skyrocket Your Personal Leadership Now | Personal Success Factors: Plan. Brand. Lead. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Part of performing and succeeding like an Olympian is learning how to unplug from stress: how to create rituals and responses to stress that will help and not hinder you. Athletes like LeBron James, Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan have all spoke of their step by step rituals for dealing with pre-game stress. It often will include naps, listening to music, tying their shoes a certain way, joking with other teammates.


You and I go through performance rituals in our personal and professional lives. Would you like to learn how to unplug like a champion?

Success is one of those concepts that we all understand, and yet, in reality it means something different to each individual. What might represent financial abundance to you might represent poverty to someone like Donald Trump.

 

Your concept of being physically fit is probably not the same as that of an elite Olympic athlete. While swimming a quarter of a mile might represent your new personal best, to someone about to swim the English Channel it doesn’t mean much.
