Right Focus… Better Result.

In business and personally we seem to constantly be focusing on all the wrong things… money, power, success… and it’s all supposed to lead to happiness.

What follows is an old Buddhist parable (which was sent to me recently by a close friend as a very gentle reminder), that could be of some interest to you because happiness actually comes from within, and if you start to become truly happy, the normal trappings of success that we seem to be constantly chasing start to eventuate far more easily and effortlessly than we thought.

Enjoy…

“Long ago, when the earth and all living creatures were being created, a meeting was called of the council of the Gods. They wanted to make the One Thing available to all Human beings, but they were concerned that it might be misused. So they decided to hide it, where only those people who could value its power could find it.

Where to hide the One Thing was the question. “Let’s bury it deep in the earth,” said one God. But another answered, “No, that will not do, because humans will eventually create huge machines to dig into the earth and find it.”

Another God said, “Let’s sink it in the deepest ocean.” But then came the objection, “No, not there, for they will learn to dive into the ocean in big metal fishes, and will find it.” Then someone said, “Let’s take it to the top of the highest mountain and hide it there.” But once again another replied, “No, that will not do either, because they will eventually climb every mountain and put the One Thing to improper use.” Then they all gave up in despondency. “We do not know where to hide it, because it seems that there is no place on earth or in the sea that human beings will not eventually reach.”

The King of all the Gods thought for a long time and then said, “Here is what we will do. We will hide the One Thing deep in the center of their own being, for humans will never think to look for it there.”

They all agreed that this was the perfect hiding place, and the deed was done. Since that time, humans have been going up and down the earth, digging, diving, climbing, and exploring, searching for power and riches and resources, when all the time the greatest treasure is already within themselves.”

Remember, we are not business people… we are people in business and every journey that we undertake starts from within.

Time To Make A Change!

One of the greatest challenges in life is that we are constantly giving away our power.

 

We give our power away at work, in relationships (both personal and business), with our families and certainly with the society in which we live.

 

The best way in which to regain our power is to constantly improve what we know and make a decision to reduce our ignorance in areas that are important to us.

 

Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with being ignorant… what it means is that at any one point in time we didn’t get the knowledge or information that we needed… to help us in this moment… because that is something we can ALWAYS change, (stupid on the other hand, is another matter :-)).

 

Our business and work lives are such an important part of who we are and the success we create for ourselves, yet we do very little to make the necessary changes to improve what we do and how we do it.

 

Instead of worrying about what is going on in the world and how little power we have, we need to take steps to change what we are doing so that we can guarantee our future successes in our job or business.

 

Making the right connections, learning to have great conversations and building powerful and profitable relationships is a great place to start.

Another Weekend Bites the Dust…

Many of us have died… many more of us have been born… far too many of us are struggling in this thing we call life…

 

Life is simply too short to waste…

 

Today… more harsh words have been expressed than words of love and encouragement have been shared

 

WHY…? Because we have become too fearful… too complacent!

 

We live in a world where real connections are more critical than ever… for our success… as well as for our well-being.

 

Sadly… we have created a world where trust, authenticity, real values and true, honest communication have become VICTIMS to EXPEDIENCY.

 

A world where everything is done in meaningless soundbites… where narcissism and blatantly judgemental behaviour has become the norm… where people are valuing their uninformed and often worthless opinions instead of becoming truly informed…

 

Where REAL RELATIONSHIPS have started to disappear under the weight of this rampant onslaught on our lives…

 

Let’s make a promise to ourselves to communicate… write, talk, text (this is not really writing…LOL), sign, mime, hug or simply express with a smile… a word or two of encouragement, praise, caring and love to at least three people in the next 24 hours…

 

WHY…?

 

Because life IS too fleeting and a kind word of encouragement does more to lift someone’s spirits than anything else I know.

 

Be an ENCOURAGER for your life as well as for others… blessings… 🙂
