Over the past week, we have published 7 principles with the potential to make us better stewards of our personal gifts:
- Reach higher
- One by one turn “impossibles” into “possibles”
- Communicate clearly
- Create a Personal Culture
- Mentor those who depend on you
- Become a more aware citizen
- Live an “action based life”
The challenge today has two parts. The first one is to wrap these behaviors as a present to yourself and adopt them as a part of who you are starting now. In fact, we were inspired to write this series when we started hearing conversations a few weeks ago about resolutions for the new 2014 year and it became apparent that most of us wish for better, but we have a hard time conceptualizing how we may achieve it. In our experience the “how” comes as a result of an emotional investment and understanding the thoughts of our minds, the intentions of our hearts, and how the actions of our hands have the power to create beauty, understanding, caring, action, and love. The simple application of these 7 behaviors to your work, your family, your social groups, or your church, will guarantee you are spending at least part of your energy in changing the space around you instead of accepting it as it is.
The second part of today's challenge is: We would like for YOU to share your gifts with us. Write down a behavior that you find worth sharing here and leave it as a comment so we may benefit from the wisdom that makes you uniquely special.
Happy New Year!
