Be nothing if not courageous.

by Rick Baker

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It's about personal values

  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to others?
  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to ourselves?
  • If we are not courageous, how do we take chances, fail, learn and grow?

 

When we to want to win at all costs, our perspectives become quite blind to the realities of situations.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Some people cannot adjust their thinking to fit the realities of the situations at hand.

Some people cannot even begin to untie their emotions, so they can use logic to think about the real facts they face in situations.

Perhaps, the problem is, their Ego must cry out for help regardless of the situation they face?  

 

 

Hope is not a strategy but it is an essential ingredient of leadership.

'Hope is not a Strategy', an interesting business book by Rick Page.

"Hope is an essential ingredient of leadership." a Deepak Chopra quote from his book, 'The Soul of Leadership'

Both are accurate statements.

People are 'selflings': that's a good rather than a bad thing...so focus on yourself...regularly.

About that suffix 'ling': yes, often pejorative; but, not always.

So, cut other selflings some slack, as they will have to do for you if you are to achieve your desires.

If trust is at the heart of meaningful business relationships, insight is in the brain.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Trust, based on a history of past experiences, is not enough to guarantee business relationships contain value. When insight is added to trust, business relationships can thrive.

Ignorance is bliss; enlightenment is bliss: the work in between is the tough part.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

For some reason, we have an old saying, "Ignorance is bliss." Obviously, that's an exaggeration...or is it?

At the other end of the spectrum, many gurus have taught, "Enlightenment is bliss." I think that may be true...however, not having reached that state I cannot say for sure.

Yes - work is challenging...it tests us, it resists our desires, and it strengthens us. 

And perhaps, as James Allen taught, perfection and work-mastery bring bliss as work-challenges vanish.
