Archives For encouragement

I’m late getting this post out to you today because — this is a mindset that is really near and dear to my heart. I WROTE A BOOK ABOUT IT. I must admit that I have some AMAZING critical connections. They are working for me even when I don’t have a clue about it.

An interesting set of events happened today. I made a new connection — I hope that we will find the critical things that make our connection matter. And then I re-connected, a few hours later, with a critical connection I had made several years ago. The events that surrounded these two meetings really through me for a loop. It was if I were having one seamless conversation but with two different people at different times.

OK, enough with the riddles. I will keep it simple. The “We Are Connected” mindset encourages you to explore the synergies in all relationships and learn to empower one another. 

1) Embrace Everyone 2) Maximize Positive Relationships 3) Build Your Drream Team and 4) Lead with Value.

We Are Connected


Pause2The other day I got a text from a friend of mine that read: Back Home! Great seeing you again! Happy New Year and Happy New YOU! I smiled, took a deep breath in and exhaled allowing myself to embrace the magnitude of that final piece of text: Happy New YOU! If nothing else in 2013, relish in the thought that every day you have a fresh opportunity to be the “New YOU”. Just think about that for a moment ~

SARAH (Listen to her message about Eliminating Toxic People From Your Life) this is such a timely topic as we move into the new year. This year I’ve had quite a few toxic people in my life — the term toxic sounds a bit Rejuvanteharsh but it does get straight to the point — that I’ve had to make the difficult decision to let go. I do believe we must intentionally surround ourselves with like-minded folks.

Beginning in October every year, for the last 5 years, I normally will do something I call the RRR (Re-assess, Release, Rejuvenate) year-end exercise; one R for each month of that last quarter. It allows me the opportunity to evaluate my year and then do whatever is necessary to create my present, which will determine my future. Can’t go back — it’s already done, no use wasting time there.

In essence, I’ve found that releasing the things that are “toxic” can seem lonely (because it could mean someone or something you really love) — but darn it. . . it’s the most rejuvenating thing you will ever do. Thanks for sharing while I’m in my month of RELEASE. – This post was originally published in November 2012. I’m now REJUVENATING!
