 THINKING Positive is bunnies & rainbows , fun & easy. But DOING Positive will take you to the next level?

Thinking positive really is a prerequisite for sustained, enjoyable success. But it’s just that – a prerequisite. Your career and life is made more by what you DO. Norman Vincent Peal wrote “The Power Of Positive Thinking”, but he didn’t just think it, he WROTE it! Positive DOING is what’s needed to release your Positive Thoughts to the world. And it’s not in doing what you’ve always been doing. You must take that first step outside of your current comfort zone. Until you take that step, you’re only dreaming. Decide NOW to turn your thinking into bold, consistent action. And your results will add up over time so that you don’t just dream bunnies and rainbows - you’ll be in the midst of them.

 

Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don’t believe is right. ~Jane Goodall

FLASHPOINTS: What Are Your Team Members Passionate About?

On December 14, 2012, in FLASHPOINTS, by Larry Broughton

Passion ignites the fire in our bellies, and drives us to dream of expanded horizons beyond our fears & failures.

Everyone on your team has a particular role & each has their own personal passion. It’s these passions and interests that you must identify in order to create a team that is totally on fire! What is it that attracted your team members to their particular roles? Is it direct customer interaction, is it writing, is it finding creative solutions? Ask them! When our roles evolve in business, sometimes the very thing that excites us to begin with is no longer a focus. As a leader, it’s our task to ensure each member of our team is successful—one of the best ways to do this is to create an environment where they are in love with their roles and working with passion. What are your team members passionate about?
