Life is full of change. How we accept that change makes a big difference. Change is constant. Sometimes it is good and sometimes it is bad. How we approach it with our attitude may make it better or unbearable.
Why do you think it is hard for some to accept change and for others they just roll with it?
Who do you think is more successful? The people who do not accept change or the ones who do accept it? Why?
Change is like a butterfly. It flutters around until it finds a sweet spot. ~ Patti
A friend was telling me recently of a situation which happened at his work. A co-worker of his was pushed to the breaking point by one of his peers and exploded with anger. The person who lashed out had been holding in his frustration and finally blew. The results of this uncontrollable anger cost him his job.
What steps may have prevented this from happening?
Here are a few tips when you find yourself at the boiling point:
Walk away immediately when you feel the anger boiling up inside.
Step outside for some fresh air to clear your mind.
Go back to your work space, grab a piece of paper and write down all your ugly feelings. Get out all those emotions, reflect on it and destroy it.
Controlling your anger and temper will help you as well as those around you. After you have calmed down and self reflected about the situation. Think about how you will approach the person to calmly discuss the matter. Does it need to be address quickly? Or does it really need to be discussed at all? By practicing these tips on how to handle anger it may help you gain respect from others instead of destroying it. ~ Patti
Today I saw this quote “Impossible is just an opinion”. We live within our thoughts sometimes believing “That is impossible” or “I am not capable of doing that”. However just think of all the different things we thought were impossible within our life time. I remember when I saw a fax machine for the first time and how I couldn’t believe it, now days there is so much more enhanced technology being developed daily. Just think if people kept thinking that is “impossible” technology would have never moved forward with what we have today. Impossible IS just an opinion. If there is something you really want in life, you will work towards finding a way to accomplish it. My wish for you is happy seeking your “impossible”. ~ Patti

There will come a time when you believe everything is finished. That will be the beginning. – Louis L’Amour
These words are so inspiring. Think about times in your life that something ended a friendship, a relationship, career, the children growing up and moving out. When our lives change this gives us opportunities for other things to come in. Sometimes these circumstances are emotionally hard for us, but once we move past those feelings we start moving towards a new beginning.
Fear leads you to believe that where you are right now is a safe place and going forward is a risk. The truth is standing still is the risk. – Susie Carder
I saw this quote recently and it made me think of how many people have so much potential they just don’t see it in themselves. If they would just step out and be open to new ways of doing things or trying something new. I remember my daughter said to me once “I think you should try hummus, I know you will like it”. I didn’t try it until recently and now I buy it all the time. If I would have been open to trying new things I would have been enjoying the taste of hummus a long time ago. Throughout my life there were so many things I hadn’t tried or done because of fear in some form or another. Fear of rejection, fear of someone getting mad, fear of disappointing someone and fear of being hurt. I have learned through the years stepping out is better than living in fear. My hope and wish for you is to step out and live to your full potential. ~ Patti
Question: Why do you think people are not willing to step out and show their true potential?
If someone takes the time to send an email, instant message or text you, have some manners and respond back. People who do not respond back appear to be rude, self absorbed or a just don’t care attitude. This may not be the case at all but that is how it is taken. Respond back even if it is “I got your message. Thank you!” To keep good relationships with friends, associates, clients, family and others in your life make some sort of effort or people will give up on you. It is just common courtesy.
We all get busy with work and personal lives and yes we are getting pulled in many directions. Sometimes we feel overwhelmed but we can take a few minutes every day to reply back to others. Show some respect towards that person who took the time out of their busy schedule to connect with you. ~ Patti
