Soft Power Leading.

Leading with "Soft Power".....

When you enter a conversation do you expect people to agree with you or you would rather leave people with an impression of increase?
Do you like to grow in awareness , learn from a situation - and by learning I mean sometimes we can learn what to do other times we can learn what not to do, or you would rather keep learning the same life lesson over and over again.
Because you see in life we keep getting "The same" Lesson until we learn it - we can not move to the next level of success or prosperity until we learn the lessons we must learn at the previous level.
Me personally don't write blog post or comments on other posts so I get every one's approval - growth is part of life, growth is part of the journey we are on, growth is going from one goal to another towards our Purpose.

I love reading other people's comments so I can understand and a different point of view, so I can learn a different way of approaching a problem or a goal of mine - a different way of thinking.

Approaching something slightly different next time around will give me different results right? That being the truth I believe it serves me to stay open minded to new ideas and not stuck in the same kind of thinking that created my current circumstance, my current level of success.

I strive to do better this year than I did the previous year and the year before - therefore change is inevitable.

One of the things that changed my life dramatically in the past few years was - learning and understanding more about myself, taking responsibility for my actions, my results my attitude and my own behavior.

Now what has attitude got to do with my results?


A fascinating aspect of self development is I got to the point where by guiding my own attitude towards other people I can guide their attitude towards me....

If you are a Leader, you must understand that you your words will be better heard and understood if you guide people with your own attitude - which I call "Soft Power".

What approach to leading works best for you? What gave you best results?
In my next post I will get into this a little deeper.

Please share your experience with us.
To your Success.

Shake off what most people might perceive as failure.

Shake off what most people might perceive as failure.

Talking to myself this morning, deciding what steps will I take today towards my Goal. And some mornings decisions are easy especially when things go your way and what you worked on gives you the results you expected... wright? You are inspired to take more action, that's when self-motivation is not a problem at all.
But what happens when for a couple of days things just don't go the way you wanted them to go, when it seams like everything is just biting you in the butt?
What happens then? How do you act, how do you decide to use your energy then, will make the difference and always has.
Passion, persistence, stepping out of our comfort zone, and most important getting back up after failure...these are the traits of a true champion! Getting up again and doing it different and better.
How do I find the inner power? How do I keep advancing? How do very successful people do this?
It takes confidence and self belief. You can have all the knowledge in the world all certifications, diplomas but nothing will help you if you don't believe in yourself.

Do you know you can have all the plans in the world - but if you don't work on your mindset you'll be stuck there for a while.
We must spend as much time on the MINDSET for SUCCESS as we are on the marketing and planning and all that which will be useless without the mindset for success.

The Success JOURNEY is one of the most profound personal growth Paths you can take.
And any new level of success you achieve becomes a new level of personal growth.

We all have amazing talent and potential within us.
How do you use yours?

Hope you give this some serious thought so you don't have to be stuck there for a while.

Please leave your comments or questions bellow.

Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.

Even if you fall on your face, you're still moving forward.

Starting 2011 - we can get into it like a lost sheep or WE CAN Make up our Mind we are going to do it Big , we are going to do it Different.
So, I decided to go for the second. What did you decide?
The way I look at it : If what we are doing isn't working the way we want it to work, don't be afraid to change it , start approaching it a little different, right?
Sounds easy enough.
I mean Commitment to a New Goal it's easy, no big deal (especially for the first 2 weeks of the New Year ha,ha,ha) but buying into it, keep our commitment, creating new habits and beliefs not so.
Choosing New Habits and committing to a new way of doing things is an Art I would say.
So if you decided to do it different and by that I mean do it better and bigger this year, here are some aspects you could incorporate in the process, because changing habits is a process, a system.
1. Don't change things by fighting existing reality, to change things you need to create a New Model - that makes the existing model obsolete.
2. Write it down - make your commitment in writing, sign it and give your written commitment to someone you respect and trust - This is like a Policy against failure. Make 2 copies and keep one.
3. Read your commitment out loud every morning - first thing in the morning and just before going to bed.

And here we go getting into Habits again...hum, fun part begins.

P.S. Now make sure your signature means something, something as simple as keeping your promise to yourself will build or chip at YOUR SELF IMAGE.
