Understanding Power and How to Embrace It in Your Life

June 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 187

You must produce a result

With any endeavor that involves a goal or accomplishment, there needs to be a measurable result. Without some discernible accomplishment, the element of productivity is lacking. Notice whenever you either produce a result or have some story, justification or excuse for why the result may be lacking. Your power will come from taking responsibility for making a result happen in spite of any challenges or circumstances that may cross your path.

There must be personal development occurring

You can achieve all the money, possessions and fame possible, but without learning something that moves you forward personally, the achievement is incomplete. Your intention to examine each situation, interaction and communication to evaluate what worked about it and what was missing that may have supported your power and effectiveness will provide insights to ensure that this element of personal development is present as you go about your day.

You must have fun

No matter how successful you may be, if you hate the process and have not stopped to enjoy yourself along the way, your accomplishment has surely been lacking. You get to decide what will constitute having fun. Identify your values and passions and ensure that they are honored and included as a condition that must be met as you design your accomplishments. Your focus on having fun will result in it happening because of your intention that it be so.

Rating Your Accomplishments:

As you take on projects and set goals, rate yourself on a scale from 1 to 10 in your journal with respect to:

A-Measurable Results, B-Personal Growth, C-Fun

Your focus on all three areas will produce a worthwhile and enjoyable victory with substance.

Are You Living Life Backwards?

Here is short Story... Larry was a tremendous success by most standards. He had built a company from scratch that netted $5 million a year in bottom-line profit. He had all the houses, cars, boats and other toys that we usually equate with success. But no matter how well he did, no matter how much wealth or how many things he amassed, it was never quite enough. He somehow could not get over the persistent thought that he was a failure. There was little satisfaction in anything he accomplished. Throughout his childhood, if his report card showed all A's and a B+, he would be disappointed for not applying himself more. He could still hear his dad scolding him, saying, "Come on, Larry! You can do better than that!"

It was the same story for everything he did. No matter what the accomplishment, the feeling of satisfaction was always short-lived. He would always find a way to invalidate himself, thinking it wasn't that big a deal after all to achieve whatever he did. There was always another bigger, steeper, tougher mountain to climb. Once he climbed THAT Mountain, he'd be happy. But after doing so, there was always little sense of lasting accomplishment awaiting him at the top. So he'd be off looking for that next prize to attain ---- and then, surely, he'd be happy.
