Job Vs Career People who don’t stand for something, can easily fall for anything. Deciding how you want to measure your life means making a stand for something and then living your life in alignment with it. Ultimately, living with purpose means focusing on things that matter most. Ironically, the things that matter most are rarely “things.” That said, while some people are in a position to trade the security of a regular salary in order to pursue a passion, many simply can’t—at least not in the short term or without violating core values (like paying off debt or providing for their family). But following the money and following your heart don’t have to be mutually exclusive. By shifting the lens in which you view what you are doing now, you can profoundly shift your experience of it. No matter what your job, you can draw meaning from it and find greater purpose through how you do what you do. If you don’t think you’re the kind of person you’d want to work with, then consider that it may not be because of the job you do each day, but your attitude toward it. Knowing your purpose may compel you to take on challenges that will stretch you as much as they inspire you. Just as a boat under power can handle any size wave if perpendicular to it, when you’re powered by a clear purpose, there is little you cannot do.

Doing work that you’re good at, but which you loathe, is not a pathway to fulfilment. That said, knowing your greatest strengths and where you can add the most value—through the application of your education, skills, knowledge and experience—can help you focus on the opportunities, roles and career paths where you are most likely to succeed and therefore find the greatest sense of accomplishment and contribution. Too often we undervalue our strengths, skills and the expertise we naturally acquire over time. If you reframe the concept of adding value through the lens of solving problems, you can ask yourself what you’re well placed and equipped to help solve in your workplace, career, organisation or industry. You can also ask yourself what problems you really enjoy solving, and what problems you feel passionate about trying to solve. You’ll then be more successful at focusing on your natural strengths and those things you’re innately good at than trying to bolster or eliminate your weaknesses.

Great leaders are great learners. Getting feedback from others allows you to continue to learn and grow. Just like you want your team to out-stand, you also want to improve yourself. Ask others for feedback on a regular basis. THE COMMON MISTAKE Some leaders make the mistake of thinking they need to have all the answers. Successful leaders never stop learning — especially from their mistakes. Three little words extraordinary leaders are not afraid to use: “I was wrong.” Learning requires keeping an open mind, listening, and exploring. For leaders, it’s also important to share what you learn. While it’s important for you to have followers, it’s critical for you to develop other leaders. Leaders who develop leaders invest time in sharing what they’ve learned with others. By doing so, you also model the importance of continuing to learn and grow. Leaders don’t accept the status quo or rest on their laurels. They’re always asking “what’s next?” to grow themselves, their organizations, and their people. Learning and sharing what you learn to develop other leaders is how you make an impact and leave a legacy.

Goal setting is essential to living a life with purpose and meaning. Having clearly-defined goals allows you to have a sense of control over your action, your life, and your organization. Developing personal goals that you are committed to as well as a solid plan for your organization will help to minimize setbacks. However, there will always be obstacles and setbacks…so expect them. Have you thought about what you want to be doing in five years' time?🔕 Are you clear about what is your main aim for attaining such a level in life?🤔 Pray for wisdom for you to maximise your potential through hardwork and value opportunities you come across 💯. Wishing y'all a great week ❤

Let's wrap up the week with an by being confident and trusting every step we are making. We don't have to do what others are doing, level up your game! Above all Focus on your values and goals.

Money is a fantastic resource but seeing a lot of people still fall into the money trap rather than for what drives them, is so unfortunate. If you can grasp the concept of making your dream come true rather than always chasing money, you will reach new levels of success. It’s easy to walk down the street and see so many people eating nice food, driving fancy cars, and dressing well, but what you can’t see is what they are like when they get home. Unfortunately, platforms like Instagram, facebook, Twitter ,etc. can easily give you the impression that everyone is living an amazing life –on the contrary, most of us are chronically unhappy. So, don't get it twisted! Go ye for your dream and envision it fully Many of us have all been there, working hard to make money without understanding what drives us. At some point, we question is this all of it. The most sustainable way to earn money is to forget about chasing it, but to have a clear vision. That’s the real motivating goal. You truly succeed only when you have a clear conscience of your vision and you’re able to add value. Those values will become money. Money is like a shadow, when you try catching it, you can’t, but when you move forward, it follow you. In other words, stop chasing money, be creative, start adding value and money will start pursuing you.

Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value. Becoming a person of value demands embracing a life long pursuit of personal development. Personal development is a process of understanding and developing yourself to realise your full potential. To realise this, you should set life principles to abide by. One such 'MUST HAVE' principle is Integrity. Integrity means doing the right thing at all times and in all circumstances, whether or not it's convenient. Furthermore, find a way to encourage and inspire others to be all they can be. Empower, share your knowledge and skills with others. Your value is connected to the number of lives that are better because of you. When you're on the path of purpose, it's easier to add significant value to the lives of others. You'll hardly be of any significant value to people or influence them when you don’t know where you are going yourself. Remember, purpose ignites passion which keeps you motivated, inspired and focused. You need that to be valuable.

In our productivity-crazed culture, it’s rare to press pause. No sooner do we complete one thing before we’re on to the next. Or more often, we’re racing from one thing to the next, on a schedule we don’t feel we have control over, leaving a trail of incomplete tasks, projects, or relationships in our wake.Some people use writing or prayer at the beginning or end of each day to acknowledge what they’re grateful for and set an intention for the following day. You could also carve out some time each mid-week to reflect on the past days, and take note of what you appreciate, and what you would like to change. Here are some questions you can use to prompt your reflections. What do I appreciate in my life? What am I grateful for having experienced? What loose ends do I want to tie up? What amends do I need to make? To whom? What do I need to forgive myself for? What do I need to forgive others for and release? What do I want to celebrate (that I didn’t have time for when it happened!)? What do I want to congratulate myself for? What is my soul longing for? What do I want to create or shift now? Wishing you all a peaceful and joy-filled week. Until next time, be free and wild. #

The black man above is George McLaurin, the first black man to be admitted to the University of Oklahoma in 1948. He was forced to sit in a corner far from his white classmates. But to date his name remains on the honor roll as one of the three best students of the university. These are his words: "Some colleagues would look at me like I was an animal, no one would give me a word, the teachers seemed like they were not even there for me, nor did they always take my questions when I asked. But I devoted myself so much that afterwards, they began to look for me to give them explanations and to clear their questions." You have something to offer, don't look down upon yourself... Say "I CAN MAKE IT!!!"

No matter how you slice it, there are only 24 hours in a day. When you learn to take control of your time, you improve your ability to focus. And with increased focus comes enhanced efficiency, because you don’t lose momentum. You’ll start to breeze through tasks more quickly.Through effective time management, you can eliminate the pressure that comes from feeling like you don’t have enough time. You’ll start to feel more calm and stable. When the time comes to examine options and make a decision, instead of rushing through the process, you can take time to carefully consider each option. And when you’re able to do that, you diminish your chances of making a bad decision. So, remember, Time management is the key to success. It allows you to take control of your life rather than following the flow of others. As you accomplish more each day, make more sound decisions, and people notice. Leaders in your business will come to you when they need to get things done. And that increased exposure helps put you in line for advancement opportunities. Happy New Week!

Change Your Perspective, Change Your Life In life, nothing is "wrong" or "right" (rare circumstances aside). "Wrong" and "right," especially in regards to where you want to go in life, are relative terms. Too often, we think of "success" or "doing what we love" as an end. It's some destination that we have to reach. What so many people fail to realize is that both of those terms are more of an approach to the journey, not the end of the journey itself. You are "successful" when you are walking your path, always learning, always growing. You are "doing what you love" when you see every moment as an opportunity. It's on you to discover what that opportunity is. The key is to point at yourself. If you look in the mirror and you point at your physical self, your reflection in the mirror will point at itself. When you "pull the thumb," you take accountability. You are shifting your perspective from "blame" to "ownership." You are allowing yourself to open up and see opportunity instead of oppression. This same theory goes for everything: work, personal relationships, even the way you feel about yourself. REMEMBER TO FOCUS ON LESSON THAN PROBLEM

"I don't know why, but I can't/ won't trust Him/ Her." A team without trust isn't really a team: it's just a group of individuals, working together, often making disappointing progress. It doesn't matter how capable or talented your people are, they may never reach their full potential if trust isn't present. So how can you, as a leader, help your team to build the trust that it needs to flourish? 1. Create The Circle Of Safety The whole motive of building trust within the team is to keep the information safe in order to get desired results in the end. Treat your people like ‘human beings’ and give them a sense of security, belonging, an ultimate purpose and proper care. The first step to trust is care; the team needs to feel cared to trust you. 2. Praise Others Every member of your team want to matter and you might help them in feeling important by kind words of appreciation. Appreciating and valuing another person helps in building trust at a quick pace. Keep in mind that no one ever created a win-win relationship without letting the other person win first. 3. Open Up It is important to expose yourself to your team. Exposing doesn’t mean spilling your secrets to let them take advantage of you, but to make them feel that you are nothing different from the rest of your team. You should have the guts to admit your failures and demonstrate your thoughts without any hindrance. One way to build trust is to encourage your team members to see their colleagues as people and not workers. Think about creating situations that help them to share personal stories, and to bond. 4. Lead by Example: If you want to build trust within your team, then lead by example, and show your people that you trust others. This means trusting your team and your colleagues. In a Nutshell, trust is an essential element in team productivity. Without it, you're unlikely to get anything meaningful done. But with it, teams can accomplish everything they set out to do... and more.

How much sleep do you get each night? Most of us know that eight hours is the recommended amount, but with work, family, and social commitments often consuming more than 16 hours of the day, it can seem impossible to make the math work. Perhaps you feel that you operate just fine on four or five hours a night. You probably already have some understanding of the benefits of rest—and the costs of not getting it. Sleep allows us to consolidate and store memories as well as process emotional experiences. But what Do we do? Fortunately, there are solutions to help leaders improve the quality and quantity of their sleep. Many of these are well-known but underutilized. They include sticking to a consistent bedtime and wake-up schedule, avoiding certain substances too close to bedtime (caffeine within seven hours, alcohol within three hours, and nicotine within three or four hours), avoiding destructive gadget prior to sleeping time(Phones,tablets, Computers etc.) ,exercising (but not right before bed) and taking a break on social platform 30 minutes prior to bedtime. Additionally, relaxation and mindfulness meditation exercises help lower anxiety, making it easier to drift off to sleep. People who experience improved sleep, enjoy more self-control, better moods, and higher job satisfaction, and they become more helpful toward colleagues in a team. As a leader, even if you fail to get enough sleep yourself, you should be careful to promote good sleeping behavior. Your employees are watching you for cues about what is important. Avoid bragging about your own lack of sleep, lest you signal to your subordinates that they, too, should deprioritize sleep. If you absolutely must compose an e-mail at 3 am, use a delayed-delivery option so that the message isn’t sent until 8 am. If you must pull an all-nighter on a project, don’t hold that up as exemplary behavior.
