The holiday decorations are down and put away. Life is assuming its regular routine. Perhaps the weather is dismal where you are, and you’re feeling the winter blues. The ink on your New Year’s resolution is barely dry, and maybe you’re feeling disillusioned by the whole thing! Are you wondering – will there be change this year? Will I finally be fulfilled?
You’ve heard it said: The happiest, most satisfied people in the world are, very often, the ones who give the most to others. Their joy is not found in material things, but in the ways they invest in other people. You’ve seen our Wish List for Your 2016, and we desire to keep this list in front of you for a bit longer – let it sink in!
The final items on our list are directly related to investing in people. YOU have gifts and talents that can be used to better others.
Here are some reminders:
- I want you to see people, not as objects or obstacles but as human beings. I want you to see their strengths and identify their weaknesses. I want you to focus on their strengths and encourage them to use them daily. Try coaching a weakness into a strength by positive transformation (i.e. a poor communicator can be an excellent communicator with self-awareness and instruction.)
- I want you to celebrate wins and to catch people doing what’s right.
- I want you to engage in healthy conflict — daily. Disengage from dysfunctional conflict. Know the difference.
- I want you to seek alignment. That’s a big statement.
- I want you to have clarity and to truly focus on what matters only, everyday.
- I want you to live with purpose and lead others in a manner so they can live their purpose.
- I want you to be heard. I want you to be seen. I want you to be understood. I want you to first do the same for others, be the first to serve.
- I want you to take care of yourself mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally. I want you to know your weak area and get a coach or mentor to help you with it.
- I want you to call out greatness in others and I want you to be great.
Simply, “to be” is the key. I want you to be the best you can be in 2016.
