I’m going to share the 6th Mindset straight from the book! This one is so good, it doesn’t need altering.

LivetoGiveLive to Give teaches us that abundance in one’s life is a cycle, and so to get love, respect, and financial security we must first learn to give those things. This mindset also teaches that the greatest gift we can ever give is to find and leverage our unique genius to maximize our positive impact on the world, knowing that good things will be returned to us in kind. Woooohoo — that’s powerful. Did you get it? I hope so.

You can start this process by doing some of these things. Like I mentioned, in earlier posts, you can get all the details of the 7Mindsets in the book. So go get yourself a copy.

AttitudeGratitudeI’m grateful for BREATH! I’m grateful for POSSIBILITIES anew! I am grateful for what’s in my hand (what I have) right NOW! I’m grateful for POSITIVE RELATIONSHIPS that help me expand and grow! I’m grateful for HEALTH and well being! I’m grateful for the day time and a night time to REST. Why would I choose any other attitude, than the one of Gratitude? You choose.

4. Elevate Your Perspective ~ People who have achieved great lives point to moments of great adversity and challenge as the time when they learned a critical lesson or build the essential skill that allowed them to be successful. Know that, you can understand why it is important that you seek the positives from all situations, even the ones that seem completely negative. When you do this, you get better, learn, and grow in the essential ways that let you live a richer and fuller life. Come on people…..elevate your perspective!

Cultivate Critical Connections: A Guide for Creating Genuine Relationships is designed for college bound students and young adults who are at the start of building authentic relationships. I teach my readers how to nurture, evaluate, and sustain their connections in an easy to recall process called the 3C-Technique. I explain that their personal and professional growth depends on their original intention for developing relationships and that the benefits of those critical relationships can be the springboard to meaningful opportunities

At some point in our lives, we realize that we are who we are because of the critical connections we’ve made. When we take the time to create genuine connections, what we’re saying is that we value the people we are connecting with. The 3C-Technique approach– is simple and goes like this:

  • If we take the time to master how we cultivate relationships,
  • examine the fine details of what’s critical (authentic) in our relationships,
  • and then commit to the effort of keeping those connections intact, we can change the trajectory of our lives.
