If the only thing people learned was....

Have you struggled with really awful experiences and wished they would quickly pass? Or cursed your strings of bad luck and wondered when the bad streak will ever end? What about the other end – have you ever let a great victory get into your head and made bad decisions? Consider the following story.

Les Brown shared this story and I had to pass it on. There’s a famous fable of an ancient powerful king. As powerful as he was, he often struggled with emotional highs and lows, and that had caused him heavily during critical moments in battles.
The King was prone to periods of great elation where he would make very poor decisions, and periods of great despair where he would get extremely upset.

One of the kingdom’s wise men created a ring for the King, a device that would help stop him from getting lost in his high and low moments.

The King asked, “How does it work?”
“Wear the ring with you always. In times when you need it...

The Power of Deep Listening

THE POWER OF DEEP LISTENING

Posted by: Raul Lopez Online

Have you ever spoken to someone who made you feel like you were the only person in the world at that moment? Who seemed truly engaged and interested in every word that came out of your mouth? How did that make you feel? Important? Understood? 

This is the power of deep listening. Deep listening is more than a valuable social habit; it is a transformative communication tool. With deep listening, you are not only allowing yourself the time and space to fully absorb what your conversation partner is saying, you can actually encourage him or her to to feel heard and to speak more openly and honestly. And this is a key step in developing rapport with someone. 

To better understand how to interact and communicate more effectively with others, we spoke to body language expert Jan Hargrave, one of the Leadership Academy speakers, about the core tenets of deep listening:

HOW TO LET GO OF THE PAST
STOP LETTING PAINFUL MEMORIES CONTROL YOUR PRESENT – AND FUTURE


Posted by: Team Tony


Why do we hold on to the past? Why is it so difficult to let go of the experiences that have caused us pain and suffering?


For many of us, we get stuck in the past because of our need for certainty. Certainty is one of the six basic human needs and is fundamentally about survival. We all need to feel certain that we can avoid pain and, ideally, find some comfort in our lives. Continuous pain means continuous damage, and that eventually leads to our demise. It’s frightening to step into the unknown. It’s difficult to be vulnerable. And it can be overwhelmingly uncomfortable to have that sense of uncertainty about what lies ahead. So we hang on to the past – because even if it’s steeped in pain, it’s what we are familiar with and what we feel certain about.

The other reason it’s so difficult to let go of the past has to do with the way...

Step into your Greatness.

 
    As you move outside of your comfort zone, what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal ~ Robin Sharma
 

As humans, we make choices everyday. It’s these choices that determine and create our daily Habits, the situations we deal with, our choices will also pave the path to our goals.

The trouble is that our minds often lie to us. Our mind has developed what are known as heuristics (shortcuts) that create quick decisions. Or, your mind is quick to make decisions for you (fight or flight) and it serves us well most of the time (and that’s why it exists).

But these heuristics also have a negative side: Your mind often look for the easiest path. It lets you believe, feel, and do things that often put you in a comfort zone.

Want to shoot a video? Your mind tells you that you don't look good or nobody will watch it.

Want to meet somebody new? Your mind deters you by making you feel unsafe or tells you that you’d...

10 Phrases You Should Never Tell Yourself If You Want to Succeed

1. ”It’s too late/early” – Phrases You Should Never Tell Yourself

When to start is a question often asked, even though the answer is easy and always the same – now!
