Relationship Tip of the Week

How often do you complain–especially to yourself? Everytime you complain about something, it creates a negative energy around and within you. Negative energy repels others and attracts more negativity to you. Being angry makes you make mistakes. Being rushed slows you down when you have to go back and fix something you didn’t do right in your rush to get it done. Ask yourself, is it going to matter in 100 years if I’m late to my meeting because I “caught” the light? What impression do I make when I come in grumbling and stressed? Life can be fun sometimes–even when it stinks. Mae West said it best” “Life is a banquet and most poor suckers are starving to death.” Hungry?

How many times have you had soooo many things going through your head that you end up not doing anything? To be productive, you must understand that planning is the single most important step. Take a breath and I really do mean take an actual breath, sit down with a friend and go through what you have to do one step at a time. List all the contingencies and your timeline. Then do ONE THING at a time. Sounds elementary, but  most of us think we’re too advanced to have to plan. Planning is the penicillin for stress. To be successful, you have to remember how to eat an elephant…one bite at a time.

This month I offered two people the opportunity to speak to my networking group. One person jumped at the chance, the other never even answered my email. Both are struggling to get their businesses going. Speaking to our group holds enormous potential as each one of us knows hundreds of people. Which one do you think will increase their sales? What about you? How many opportunities have come your way that you ignore as “not important enough?” The chance to say hello to a stranger on a plane or to talk for five minutes to a new neighbor? I once spoke to the fellow sitting next to me on a plane and ended up coaching him on a business presentation he was developing. I welcomed a new neighbor and got a referral on the spot. There are opportunities all around you to make a friend, gain a new customer, do a good deed. We never know how a simple hello will wend it’s way through our life. Take a chance–it might be the best decision you’ve ever made.

One of the things I like the best and fear the most is new things–new experiences, new people, new ways of doing the same old thing. I fear it because sometimes it’s hard–like learning a new computer program or cooking something healthy instead of drenching it in bacon and cheese. But I like it because it changes things up for me. It widens my life, takes me out of my little everyday circle of playing it safe. Same with people–people who aren’t like me feel kinda threatening–they’re not necessarily comfortable to be around because I’m going to have to step out of my comfort zone to talk to them–and maybe they won’t like me so much.  I learn that they don’t have a TV  but know how to wire a house or knit on a loom. Makes me say, hey, maybe I could learn to use a loom. Five minutes before I met them, I wasn’t thinking of learning how to use a loom. My little tight circle just got stretched out a bit. I challenge you this week to step out of your comfort zone–before you smother slowly over time. Who knows–might be more fun than scary……

There’s been a big uproar over Facebook changing its format recently. It makes me wonder–is this a reflection of generalized anger or a sense of entitlement? Either way, it is not a good sign of where peoples’ heads are. For this or any similar situation, instead of spending your energy on something insignificant, take that same time and send a positive message to someone–make their day. In quantum physics, there are cases were negative quarks actually attract other negative quarks. This is one of those cases:the more you complain, the unhappier you will be.

Think…..did you do anything just for yourself today? Read, meet a friend, watch a favorite show, call a bff? A day without a personal break is like a day in JAIL!!!!!!  You aren’t good for anyone or anything if you don’t take time to enjoy each day in a way that is personally satisfying to you–you get grumpy and feel like a martyr.But, it’s not too late to “save” today. Write me back and let me know what you did.
