How to Develop a Sound Mind

How to Develop a Sound Mind | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

A sound mind in a sound body, is a short, but full description of a happy state in this World: he that has these two, has little more to wish for; and he that wants either of them, will be little the better for anything else. – John Locke


There are a number of diverse issues that could alter our wellbeing / contentment — entailing aliment, standard of living, workout routines, anxiety, family, and line of business et al. However, the principal aspect that frequently gets ignored is the strength of the mind. Sound mind is the gateway to form / sustain an active and cheerful life.


Your beliefs are exceptionally influential and can direct all phases of your life comprising your health. Most of us are only to some extent conscious of the reasonings that run through our mind. To truly concentrate and have knowledge of all ideas that you sense can be draining and not to point out, kind of intimidating too.

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.

For this reason and as pointed out, rightly, Ralph Waldo Emerson, we should inspire us from nature...

Lose the Excuses

Lose the Excuses | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

A very inspiring text to start a new day. I totally agree, apologies are never a good idea and they will never give us success in our lives. [note mg]


As a college teacher, I hear my share of excuses. They all start with, but you don’t understand…


  • People from my neighborhood don’t…
  • People of my race won’t…
  • Women can’t…
  • Poor people never…
  • People my age shouldn’t…


I’m a very short (5’1”) African-American middle-aged woman. I have tons of excuses not to succeed, take your pick.


Discrimination does not have my permission to enter my life; therefore I have no use for the excuse. You may use any one of them to fail if you’d like. In the meantime, I’ll keep succeeding...

What I know is that we must commit ourselves everyday to keep our faith in our capabilities and to meet our personal commitments, family and work, it’s a permanent job.

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

What is our capacity to do great things? It is very large!


Sometimes I wonder what we mean when we talk about capacity. It is a word that often refers to the obtained results. But for my part, I consider that this is only one basic element which, if used properly, will yield interesting results and, in the contrary, disappointment will be greater.

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.

Leadership mantra : Possible vs Impossible. | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Possible is a state of mind!


You have certainly heard, on numerous occasions, people say, “that’s impossible.” What did you do with that? Here lies the difference between success and failure.


If we listen to such people, it is certain that we will abandon. Otherwise, we will continue and put the odds on our side to make things possible.


We live in a world where pessimism and lack of courage is part of the lives of many people. It’s what makes me say, that here we see clearly the difference between a leader and a follower.

In evaluations conducted in the past – well, this is more than ten years now – it became clear that I am a pragmatic person. I wonder how the same test would be interpreted today, because, since, many things are happened and my outlook on life changed dramatically in many areas.


Even if I’m stayed in some areas, it’s quite different in other areas of life.

TODAY’S LEADERSHIP MANTRA : Move!

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

[Today 01-27-2012 for practical issues, I decided to integrate the TODAY'S LEADERSHIP MANTRA topics here.]


Move forward, always moves forward, such is life.


When we say that to stop, it’s go to the back, it’s reality. We live in a world where everything goes very fast and where we must be able to be adaptable, to be open to new things and to assimilate them.


What is it that can prevent us from moving forward, if not ourselves, perhaps fear, but as Victor Kiam has well said:


“Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward.”


that should give us enough courage to know that we are moving forward in all cases.


As a leader, we know that the only way to achieve his goal is to start and move constantly. The momentum thus created will also galvanize the team who will be drawn, with you, into the spiral to success.

How to Nip Procrastination in the Bud Once and for All

How to Nip Procrastination in the Bud Once and for All | PEOPLE BUILDING | Scoop.it

Ironically, procrastination is a problem that we all seem to put off dealing with. Many people will keep putting off their obligations for as long as they can, even if they are fully aware that their lives would be so much easier, if only they were able to do everything they want to do on time.


Procrastination is something that affects people of all ages. Many college students put off studying for an exam or writing a paper for as long as they can, and then they have to pull a ridiculous all-nighter to compensate...
