RELEVANCE…

Not all opinions matter.  Always consider the source-although they may have good intentions, their perspective may not apply in that moment. Trust your OWN intuition.

BE AUTHENTIC

Just be you-everything else will fall into place.

BE AUTHENTIC

It takes courage to stand in your truth. Be AUTHENTIC. No matter how “ugly” it is, your truth can set you free. Remember, you are on this journey for a reason. Be a LIGHT.

WISDOM

Life is made up of experiences and experience yields wisdom. Mistakes are inevitable. Focus on the lesson instead of the mistake.  Share your story-it could be the difference between success and failure.

CULTURE

It is important to think about the “why” in action. Many factors play into our beliefs, behavior, life choices and the paths we take. We are all different-we have different experiences-been exposed to different things. So, it is inevitable that our perspective-the way in which we “frame” things be different. Differences can be great tools for interpersonal relations, but not without respect.

There is something special about the collaborative process. Not only does it provide a forum for mutual encouragement, it affords the opportunity to become enlightened-to broaden our horizons-to alter our “frames”. If we begin to think about why we “do what we do”, we might gain a deeper understanding of others. 

Our beliefs, lifestyles and values are for the most part prescribed, literally from the time we are born. If everything else about me were the same (i.e. personality, temperament, race, size, blood type, etc) but I was raised in Germany by german parents, then I would be typing this in German, possibility from an entirely different perspective.  I say this to say that judgement should be replaced with understanding and the acceptance of differences. Of course, we can’t always see things from the other’s perspective, or understand the logic behind their actions,  but that doesn’t necessarily mean they’re wrong and we’re right. Respect peoples’ rights to do what they want to do and to be who they are. Respect is the only requirement for peace.

 

RESENTMENT

Nothing is worth not being yourself.  It is super important to be mindful of the sacrifices you make. This is critical to getting to your purpose. Too many sacrifices leaves room for resentment.
