There is an old saying, “the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach”. There are other versions which tend to aim a little lower…however I believe that they are all wrong! The way to a man’s heart, is to care. Why just leave it with men – the way to a person’s heart, is to care!
When a man (or a woman) knows that they are appreciated and supported that goes a long way towards inspiring them to reach higher! Showing that you care, and actually caring (as opposed to fake it until you make it!) is perhaps the most powerful thing you can do to build a person up!
Have you ever had someone ask how you are and then answer their own question before you have had a chance to respond? “How are you going? Good!?” Doesn’t really leave room for, “actually my Grandmother passed away this morning”! Caring is asking and waiting for the answer because you are genuinely interested in the person.
There is power in intention, so if we intentionally look to build others up it really can begin to change our focus in a positive way, quite quickly! It doesn’t take long to tear someone down, but it often does take a long time to build someone up!
People Above Position
The vast majority of people I know as well as the research that I have done on the subject, shows that job satisfaction is at LEAST as much about the people you work with as it is about the job itself! If people do not get along with those with whom they work or have an overbearing boss who micro manages them, love for their work itself will not compensate for the stress from bad working relationships.
I had a job at one time cleaning windows…clearly not the most glamorous job, but I got along really well with my work partner which made ALL the difference! The people make the position, not the other way around!
Have you found yourself wishing to get off the 9-5 work week grind to do something which you are inspired about and which gives you more flexibility? You have come to the right place!
Here are five key points to starting a dream:
- It all begins with a thought.
- For the thought to take flight there needs to be belief that the thought, the dream can become reality.
- Then there needs to be planning.
- There must be absolute commitment!
- Learn and refine your chosen craft – do courses, advice, read, listen to relevant podcasts, attend Webinars and workshops.
Essentially the above becomes a rinse and repeat cycle. The number one point is by far the most important element – the mind…the mindset! Actually I would go as far as to say that when we focus on our mindset, and continue to pursue the building of our minds in a positive light, the other five points become a byproduct!
I’ve found that if we strive towards being the kind of person whom we would love to be a close friend of ours, then we are able to begin to embrace the vital elements which are able to release our creative self. Then we are able to live out our lives in such a way which is empowering and fulfilling, allowing us to express ourselves through embracing and empowering others to follow their path…
Look Where You Intend to Go
“By be holding we are changed” (my paraphrase) is a phrase from the Paul’s writings in the Bible which talks about looking at God (2 Corinthians 3:18). Whether or not you believe in a heavenly God or not, this phrase applies completely to the direction of our lives!
The people we allow to influence us, the books we read, what we choose to watch, podcasts we listen to…everything whether negative and bringing us down, or uplifting, full of love, positive and purposeful, will drive the direction of our life!
I am convinced that there is no greater calling on our lives than to be people who live with passion and purpose, following the dreams of our calling! From this space we are free to effect those around us, to “serve” people through empowering them by who we are, and then connect with them from a higher plain of the essence of why they are who they are!
Love is Key
What is love if not serving another? Love isn’t a word or a phrase you speak to someone, it’s what you do! How can we empower other’s with words if we are not first empowering them with actions? Love is an action!
The way to a man’s, and woman’s heart is through being a person who draws them in and inspires them to reach higher! A person who allows someone to be vulnerable without feeling vulnerable is someone who we all want to spend a lot of time with, and a person who will inspire us continually!
So back to escaping the 9-5 by becoming an digital entrepreneur…I believe, no, I know you can do it; if YOU want to!!! Taking the above steps is where to begin…focus and stay focused on where you want to go, and guess what, that’s where you will begin to go!!! Of course it’s not easy, if it was everyone would do it!
I have seen the change in my own life and the lives of many other’s, who just simply choose not to accept their/my current circumstances as being, “the way things are”, and move towards change!
