Who are you?
That’s the famous question that we should ask ourselves every six months. To be your authentic self you need to ask the question! Furthermore you also need to write down the answer. Why should you do this personal work? Because sometimes we forget who we are.
We get lost in all the craziness in daily chores, and what we think is important in our lives, and the news on our television sets. Some of it concerns us and some not so much.
How do you feel about the past election? Are your feelings based on the real facts? Are you doing your own research on real facts or just taking someone else’s word as fact full information and reacting to it? Can you change your mind when you find out the facts?
It’s paramount to be able to say “well maybe I was wrong before”! That is a powerful and bold statement. It’s important to realize and to say I’ve changed my mind on that because I now have checked the facts and found out that I was wrong.
It is important to admit you are wrong. Why is it so important, because that proves you can be a rational and independent person. Those actions make you unique in our world of smart thinkers. How many times do you think Einstein had thoughts that he couldn’t prove? Because he had such a momentous capacity to think about the natural world he changed his mind thousands of times in his lifetime. Einstein’s thoughts became his theories. He changed Newton’s three laws and transformed physics. His thoughts and theories became a foundation for astrophysics and the atomic bomb.
Isn’t that is enough proof that you can change your mind and still be okay with your thoughts? Listen to your innermost thoughts, your dreams, your happiness and that of other people in your life. Take the time to organize your thoughts and let your heart speak for you when you need that.
Don’t be afraid of change rather endorse change if it will open doors for you or your company. Do not be afraid to change, it can be the best thing to propel your life forward.
Yes you can talk about it with your family and friends and your staff. Be sure you are in a safe environment where their minds are open as well. Make a commitment to have a safe space where you can talk about needed changes.Do not let someone else put fear in your heart when you are working on going forward for you and your family. Do not let someone intimidate you when you feel you are on the right track to accomplish good things!
