Accepting Yourself Just As You Are

Love yourself no matter who you really are.       ~ Jen Sincero ~ How often do you think “I’m not good enough? What’s wrong with me”? Like most people, probably way too much. We compare ourselves to others and let the narrative run through our heads without being aware of it. Looking back […]

Experience is the Best Teacher

Experience is great teacher

Experience is a great teacher. In fact, everything we learn is based on some type of experience. There are basically two types of experience; objective and subjective. Think about it. The majority of everything you have learned is based on the experience of others. Now, before you disagree, let’s look at it. Objective The majority […]

Is It Feedback or Criticism?

Feedback isn’t Criticism and Criticism isn’t Feedback. I don’t know about you but I’ve seen many people misinterpret the feedback from a person as criticism. And I also have seen people criticizing a person believing that they are giving the individual constructive feedback. The method, approach, and voice tone of the person providing the information […]

Every Pencil Has An Eraser

Pencil Eraser

One day I was discussing an issue with a friend when I came to the realization that I misunderstood a situation. I then knew I had to apologize to a few people and told my friend. She then told me “That’s why every pencil has an eraser”. What an insightful comment. Deleting a Mistake Think […]

Why Do We Resist the Process of Life?

Resistance. A very common automatic response to what doesn’t “feel good.” It shows up in all areas of our life on a daily basis.

Experience Can Be The Best Teacher

Experience can be defined as “something personally encountered, undergone, or lived through.” I think all of us could agree on that definition. Only you can fully know and understand your past and present experiences and how they have affected you on many different levels of your life. You can try to explain them to others in […]

Where Are The Men?

This question took shape in my mind while preparing breakfast for my partner one morning. We were discussing the coronavirus (Covid-19). The lack of action by the president of the United States is a glaring example of a man not taking charge of a dire situation. Everyone in the entire world is concerned about this […]

Do Companies Have Leadership Positions?

Have you ever seen an opening at a company for leadership positions? I’ve seen openings for a supervisor, manager, director, etc. but never an opening for a leader. Even in sports, there are openings for a wide range of coaches from a position coach to the head coach. But once again, I’ve never heard of […]

Competency

How Does One Develop Competency? First of all, what is ‘competency”? Webster defines it as “the quality or state of having sufficient knowledge, judgment, skill, or strength”. We all want to be competent in what we do from a child learning how to walk, to and adult learning a new skill, such as developing websites, […]
