Did you know that the quickest way to feel better when work has you super stressed is to express gratitude? It is. And it’s easy to do.
Open your eyes and look, really look, for the silver lining in the “project that never ends” or the “boss who never found a presentation he couldn’t make a change to 30-seconds before it’s given.” The silver lining is there. Find it, express your thanks for it, and feel energy, peace, calm and strength that comes when we get grateful.
Do you make New Year’s resolutions? I don’t. Not new ones, anyway. Instead, I simply remind myself of the decisions I made a few years ago after my husband’s death.
I call them my 5 Do’s and a Do-over (because everyone deserves at least one do-over!) and share them in my new video in the hope of helping anyone who might be grieving a death, a divorce, a job loss, or any painful, life-altering event, find the courage and strength to believe that, while life as they know it is over, the road they’re embarking on can be beautiful, hopeful and happy. Life can still be filled with sunny days, love and yes, laughter. Click here for video.
Have you ever set aside time to work on a big project only to have a colleague burst into your office the moment you start to dig in and say, “Hey! Have you got time for a quick meeting?” I’m willing to bet you have. I have. And what I want to know is, what did you say? For more, click here.
The fact is, there are so few things over which we have control. Beyond decisions like where to live, type of career to pursue, whether to see the glass as half full or half empty – because, indeed that is a choice – there are very few things over which we have real control. Control is an illusion, one that impedes resilience and results in our suffering. Better to acknowledge that reality, let go of the need to control, and move forward with confidence and courage.
