Who Do You Want To Be Forever

There are few things, if any, more powerful than the first impression. It is  important for us to so see each day is a new opportunity to be better today than you were yesterday.

What do you want others to believe, feel or see when they look into your eyes? 
Do you have the face of a champion; one who refuses to give up and let the toils of life beat you down
Do you have the face of hope; perhaps the only hope one has seen in quite some time.  
Do you have the face of loving kindness; perhaps the only chance for one to see the likes of a caring person

Its Not The Job, Its The People

How often have you found yourself entrenched in a project with the full intent to deliver a job well done only to be distracted so many times that you lose sight of the task at hand.  Oftentimes we feel that it is the task but in reality, its the distractions.  Its not the job, its the people.  

Too often, people become so involved with what they want that they fail to see you as in important an aspect as they.  Don't take it out on the job; address the people. Not with anger and venom, but with love and kindness.

Life Evolves Sometimes In Reverse

Sometimes we must take 1 step back to get 2 steps ahead. 
 
As a child, my mother would tell me to step back to get ahead but it just didn't make sense to me then.  Now I understand fully what she was trying to tell me. 
 
As adults, we work so fast and hard to reach the next plateau that we don't realize that we've missed a step or two along the way. 
 
We often get to a point in our lives where we simply can't get ahead.  It is here, at this point of frustration, that we must take a moment to reflect and re-assess that which we have done to ensure that we have not skipped ahead of ourselves and our goals by moving too fast.

Troubled Waters

 
There is nothing more troubling that reporting for work daily with the uncertainty of continued employment.  Having these troubling feelings are not new for most people, but the difference between those who arrive with confidence and those who arrive concerned is their presentation.
 
How well do you present yourself?
 
Knowing what works in a business setting is one thing, but presenting yourself as the working component is another. Your personal self is equal to a package being presented.

Remember To Think Of Others

This is the perfect time to think of others as you make plans to close this year on a good note.  January will be here soon and as most traditionally do, when developing your new year resolution, make sure you incorporate others in this annual plan.
 
Some great ways of considering others around you can be as simple as the each-one teach-one concept. Take a little time to talk to a young adult or teenager. Offer a little encouragement while listening as a friend. Tell them how much the two of your life experiences are the same and share with them how you overcame your own obstacles.

Polished and Poised

The best way to stand out in crowd is to shine.
 
In an employment world that has to weed through thousands of candidates, having the best presentation is the most effective way to rise to the top of the potential candidate list.
 
Making a first impression only happens once, so why not make the most of that one time opportunity. Look well, speak well and act well are great starters to a first impression.
 
More significantly than looking the part is living the part that you present. To do this, we must start early and the early start begins with mentoring and parenting.
