Life Enrichment: Develop your Mantra
Think about it. What is the basis for your personal life? How do you lead your life, how do you make the decisions that impact your personal or professional life? This topic is very important as I have found that people who are successful tend to have a personal and professional balance in their lives
In building a Gourmet Life, I like to suggest you create a personal mantra or motto to help you or guide you in your life’s decisions. During my keynote programs I share several reasons why this is important and I also share several of my own mantras or I call them Thoreson Theorem’s.
The basic need for a personal philosophy is provide you a foundation on which to make decisions, offer assistance and to give others a few of who you are and what you care about. My challenge for you is to let others know what your belief’s are and to share with others what your mantra is, it will help not only you lead teams, but others will know how to better work with you or interact with you on a daily basis. Let me share several examples.
After 9/11 I felt many of my friends and clients were taken back and American felt shaken, I added the following mantra to help me and others move forward: Stay Positive, Take Action! Obviously it meant not to be negative and not to let the actions of a few cause me to stop or delay moving my life forward.
From a business point of view I use the following three rules:
1. I work to enhance the relationship between myself and my clients
2. I want to ensure any relationship is profitable for all parties
3. I want to make sure I have fun
As I work to build my business and my personal life I can use these three tenets to help me make a decision on any variety of topics. How are you living your life? What are your life mantras?
Remember: You can’t change the way you live your life, but you can change the way you LIVE your life!
