How to Make Sure Your Glass is Always Full

Money does not make you rich, character does. There are lots of wealthy people who are absolutely impoverished in character. You cannot buy a reputation for being a person of good character. It is earned by being a respectful, kind and responsible. You are truly wealthy when you accept the greatest legacy you will ever leave is choosing how well you live. Be genuinely grateful for what you have in life and tearing up the list of what you do not have will be gratifying. Attitude is everything. Have an attitude of lack, and life will be a never-ending search… Read more.

What Makes a Leader

If you are discouraged by all the discord you see in the world, I would like to share the one change that changes everything: changing how we lead. We hold the key to move beyond hope and through transformational change by looking at life differently and making different choices. We frequently use the terms leadership and management interchangeably as if they mean the same thing. They don’t. We lead people and manage things, such as work and the everyday tasks of our lives. Leading is about our humanness, our relationships and our interactions with each other. Leaders are those who choose to make the… Read more.

The Secret To True Leadership

What does it take to be a leader in your business, your community, your family and your relationships? Try being a servant. The concept of “servant leadership” in business, developed by Robert K.

This causes others to feel valued and respected, which in turn leads to their respecting and valuing their leader and perhaps their employer. It’s a pretty powerful concept, which you can adapt to all of your relationships. If you focus on meeting others’… Read more.

Prepare Yourself for Success

Never underestimate the power of your thoughtfulness – it may just be the very thing someone needs. Something simple to you may be huge to the heart of another. Imagine what a better place this world would be if we practiced those unsolicited random acts of kindness unto others without having to be reminded or without needing to receive acknowledgement. Doing something kind because it is the right thing to do is as powerful for your conscience as it is your heart. There are people who will take advantage of your good nature and generosity. It’s inevitable. You’ll find that these… Read more.

The Law of Appreciation

By Sheevaun Moran. When leaders are complimentary in their mind towards their group, staff, vendors, family, etc. then discord can be easily disintegrated. The energy of the leader at the top is the energy of all the people below. A thought of anger permeates the entire organization and is just like putting a cog in the wheel of productivity. Frustration energy is like putting battery acid on your computer. Every time you appreciate the person who works with you and for you is like putting grease in the gears. The energy of appreciation is as if you are creating the… Read more.

3 Practices to Light Your Life

The greatest gift that I have learned in this lifetime is to live my life by these three phrases: Love your ego, love your life and lead by example. Like many souls, I once believed that enlightenment was reached by ridding oneself of ego. In my early teens, I was so frustrated by the power my ego had over me that I broke down in uncontrollable tears. I asked the divine why I was struggling with detaching from my ego. Then, like a divine lightning bolt hitting me I realized, “trying to rid yourself of ego is your ego’s work”…. Read more.
