11 Great Ways to be Positive about Change

Look for the positives!Seek them out - those little scary places that it's challenging to let yourself go to - the positives are genuinely scary, because they give you hope and it's hard to let go of all the fears you have right now - so hanging onto them is the easiest path!So try letting yourself go, just for the heck of it!Take that step back from being 'done to' and take the initiative. At work, at home or wherever, this can be a great time, if you let it.

Patience, Understanding, Tolerance, Discipline, Thought, Control (PUTDTC)
We all must live with full tact, consciousness, and work/play ethic, with work first and then play. I get that there are many factors we must live with to be successful at anything, but without good tact, good consciousness and good ethics, the other factors are nothing.

Anger: Cleansing Squall or Hurricane?
Anger is the emotional energy within each of us that rises up when something needs to change. If you act on the need to create change, your anger can be channeled effectively; but it's not redirected to something effective, your frustration will build, sometimes to hurricane force. Anger that is allowed to get out of control is as destructive as a hurricane, but anger that is expressed in healthy ways can "clear the air" just as a mild rainstorm does.

How to Find Joy in a Job You No Longer Enjoy or Simply Tolerate
Without question, the business world has been changed and "business as usual" is no longer the case, and it may likely never be again. For those who are fortunate to still have gainful employment, the change in responsibilities has created a new focus on how work is performed. Those who are essential workers must guard their lives in a manner unlike anything they could have imagined. Those who made a transition from working in an office environment to becoming remote employees may now find themselves feeling a sense of performing in isolation. One of the challenges for becoming a remote employee is the lack of interactions and camaraderie available in a physical office environment. This is an especially difficult learning curve for those who were used to working in an open office environment and had the sounds of activity ever present during the workday. Now at home, the only aspect of the job each day to focus upon is the required tasks. There are no diversions, unless there is some type of web meeting, conference call, or traditional call.

Public Politeness
How do you feel when you walk into a public rest room and there are papers all over the floor, unflushed toilets, and wet toilet seats? If you're a woman, you're probably disgusted-men tend to be less reactive to it. However, men-what about discourteous drivers?

The Power of Politeness
For quite a while now, we've heard many public figures, like Rush Limbaugh and comedian Bill Maher express scorn about people who are politically correct. Maher even gave his show the very funny title "Politically Incorrect."

Are There Signs Your Career Stalled? It's Time for a Mindset Tune-Up
You've started your job and worked hard in your career, and yet for some reason you are no longer feeling a sense of fulfillment any longer. It may seem to you the harder you work, the less you are being recognized for your work, or you are summarized in your performance reviews by short sentences of how you have failed, rather than how you have succeeded. The work you enjoy has now reached a point where you are tolerating it as you need the income, or perhaps you do not foresee a future with the company you are working for as you are not appreciated or noticed. The longer you find yourself feeling unfulfilled, unappreciated, or unnoticed in or for your performance at work, you are going to reach a point in which your entire career may seem as if it has been stalled. If your present employer doesn't willingly acknowledge you as an employee, or at least the person you report to directly, how will your career ever advance? What's the point of developing career goals if you are not moving forward along?

Mistakes happen and are a part of life. Some disastrous mistakes have happened in history. One huge mistake was the incarceration into the American style concentration camps of nearly 120,000 persons of Japanese heritage during World War II. Life can very difficult for them, and these innocent persons had to overcome the mistakes made by others. Keeping a positive attitude and working hard can help overome the consequences of the mistakes of other people or even oneself.

A New Year and a Positive New You
Certain times of the year can prompt us to review our lives. It may be a new year, an anniversary, a significant birthday that prompts us to pause awhile and reflect on where we are, on what we've done with our lives and what we'd like our next steps to be.

3 Instinctive Thoughts You Must Stop to Discover Your True Potential
When you want to start a new project or begin work on a new goal, perhaps for something related to your job, is your first natural reaction to think you are capable and ready to get started? As an educator and career coach, I've found the natural reaction for most people is one of questions and doubt. The natural instinctive thoughts are related to fear and questions about capability and capacity. When these instinctive thoughts begin, it sets the stage for feeling a sense of being limited and at risk for failure. Rather than working from a sense of empowerment and working towards the true potential a person has to learn, when new tasks prompt developmental growth, a person remains stuck in doubt. Yet if you can be on alert for instinctual patterns of self-doubt, it is possible to create a new set of empowering thoughts.
