I was reading another of a long list of motivational writings and it said the same things - If you want to be happy and successful do these things.
One of the questions we hear most is, What is the most effective way to take the Triangle of Health and protein nutritionals? While you can do whatever you find works best for you, here is how we recommend you take the products and when.
This week sucked. I had such high plans for the month of Oct. I still do have those plans and it will not change. However, the start has not gone according to plan and I need to make adjustments. In the past, I would simply stop trying when things did not go my way, but I am getting better at letting it go and moving on.
Previous to my current career, I was in leadership. I say I was in leadership, but the official title ranged anywhere from Supervisor to Manager. I am not a big fan of these titles, as they do not scream leadership to me. Leading people is more about heartbeats than they are about head counts. Supervisors supervise, managers manage, and leaders lead.
Every job I have had, the good days are good, and the bad days are bearable because of the people I've worked with. I don’t see why it’s not the same things here. Plus, we get to be our own bosses, get healthy, and go to cool events together! So yeah sign up, or don’t, but do.
Have you ever been electrocuted? I have - twice. Hey, if at first you don’t succeed… Persistence is key to discovery I suppose.
Because we are in debt, we have been looking for a side hustle. A neighbor we trust let us know that they have been doing direct sales for Kyani. I immediately closed out, because direct sales or network marketing is just not something I enjoy. My father used to have parties and sell things to family all the time and I think it soured me. What changed my mind was that my neighbor said they understand the reputation of direct sales and that it is not for everyone. That was it!
Here is another post from 2017 about a situation I could not avoid a few years earlier and how I handled it. Sometimes, as a leader, you have to make choices to do the right thing, despite what others may think of you. This was the most difficult scenario that I faced in a leadership position.
Trust is a big deal in leadership. I know that is not a great revelation, or at least, shouldn’t be. If you have the trust of those who are in your care, they are more likely to execute on your directives. It goes deeper than that however. Management above you must also have the trust of their employees in order to create a culture of success.
Continuing thoughts I wrote in 2017 about managing. The word manager itself suggests we only look at numbers and not people. In my experience, looking simply at measure and not the human is a serious mistake.
