Rise above unfairness

Do you know that there is a great equaliser for the “unfairness” that many seems to be complaining about?

What is more beautiful is that this equaliser is in all of us!

So what is this great equaliser?

*Drums roll*

POWER OF CHOICE

You heard it right! It is the power of Choice! And I am going to explain why, so it will be placed in the right perspective for you to gain this liberating power.

Say you are working in a company where the boss shows unreasonable favoritism to a particular colleague. Not only that, the worse thing that could happened is that this colleague of yours hate you so badly, maybe because of your effective work planning. The thing is because of your effectiveness, it takes more effort for her to continue being the great worker in the eyes of the boss.

Adding on to the fact that the boss never appreciates your effectiveness, you wonder how you can rise above this unfair situation.

This is when the power of Choice comes in handy. Instead of feeling defeated and negative about the situation, you always have a choice to change the course and re-write your story. You can either have a genuine talk with this boss and find out whether you are in his long term plan or you can realize that enough is enough, you are going to start looking for a place that values your contribution. Either way, you are making proactive steps towards your success.

So when unfairness abound, know that you always have an equaliser, and that is your power of choice. Having said that, do note that this equaliser gets more valuable and effective when you invest in yourself and start to increase your skills and differentiate yourself from the rest. The more skillful you get, the more effective your power.

The power is in you to overcome many things. The more you invest in yourself, the more powerful you get.

Don’t let anyone belittle your contribution. No matter how small it may seem at this present moment, it is bringing value to the bigger picture of life. Will share more on this in a separate post.

Have a beautiful week ahead!

Results speak louder than talk

You know how we sometimes talk too much about what we hope to achieve and not on the actual work towards the achievement.

Yes, I believe this is human nature and it is how we prep ourselves to undertake something that our mind is finding hard to accomplish.

This in turns will lead to procrastination if we do not watch ourselves and allow the talks to be… Just talks. It has been shared by many guru and successful people that it is not dreams or talks that propel them to success. It was hard work, hard freaking work.

Why then do we still get stuck in the talks? Because we have yet to find a strategy or plan on how to achieve that we hope to accomplish.

It is not easy to battle human instinct but one sure way to more effective at it is to be mindful, to be conscious of our actions.

For me, I always ground myself and remind me that whatever I know or have to share, everyone already knows it. I am just basically acting as a bookmark in their lives, to help remind them of their worth, as well as my own sometimes in the future.

Rather, I should work on getting myself to a place of making it and focus on how I can make it, so that with the results to show for, it will put me in a better place to change lives and to inspire change.

I am always a work in progress. And it is always through results that we will inspire real change.
