Taking total ownership means: “It happens because I say so…” When we know we can do it what holds us back? Sometimes we jump out and demand to lead, yet the space is intended for others to do so. Leadership will often look like observing, staying silent and allowing others to succeed.
The absolute lowest level of commitment is:
“I don’t care and I don’t care that I don’t care.”
Conversely, the highest level of commitment is:
“I am willing to alter the universe to make it happen.”
When we choose to take action, checking our commitment level is crucial.
Often times Actions are more meaningful than words. It’s funny that birds wordlessly sing, yet we don’t always know what they intend to say. Science and observation has taught us that their calls have different meanings. It’s the tone and mood that tells the story.
Greater than 70% of all human interaction is non-verbal. There are wonderful words of poetry and wisdom that are excellent guides. What’s important is that our Results align with what we say. Few things irritate more than a person who doesn’t walk the talk.
If you want something else, then say and DO something else
Feelings, emotions, wants, desires, goals or anything of the sort cannot be surgically discovered within us. What is love and is it tangible? We know that when we’ve experienced love, it is one of the most powerful and memorable feelings of our lives. The love a parent feels for their child, the bond, the connection cannot be broken.
The passion and commitment that occurs when we fall in love provides motivation in its greatest form. The loss we incur when love isn’t mutual can be equally devastating. If love is anything, it is apparently everything. We get what we give
The feeling of being tired can be confused with our emotions and labeled as fatigue or exhaustion. The blame game starts and our dilemma becomes someone else’s fault, leaving us powerless. We get to choose to be being honest about whether our experience is physical versus mental, emotional and/or spiritual.
Once clarity is in place, we get to choose to take care of ourselves or take action to offset our emotional or spiritual fatigue. The latter will likely be chosen when we realize that feelings have passed, thus returning focus. This is a great time to handle of unfinished business.
