Secret Key to Asking

Magic sauce Ask for what you want

There is a secret key to achieving your dreams.  The key is asking. It is one of the most daunting action steps a person can take, and the most liberating.

There are many ways of asking, for most situations it starts with these three steps.

1. Decide what you want, specifically, know what you want overall. Then decide what you want in specifics (really break it down)

2. Know who to ask

3 Ask

It all sounds so simple.  I know it isn’t.

4 Changes Caused by Women In Leadership

Last night I was in a restaurant and noticed a group of women in the corner. The restaurant was empty and the voices of the women reached my table. They were talking about leadership, opportunities and women in leadership.

They were talking about their next steps, I was able to surmise that they worked for a large global corporation and were in senior leadership. As my ears grew and I strained to listen I heard the same things that I hear from my coaching clients, all who are in senior leadership.

Change has arrived

[1] The Old Boys Network is shaking, quaking and digging in.

The sidebar meetings, the isolation tactics [ keep the femsaway] are accelerated. They just don’t get that they have to change, learn and be flexible to a new way. This is happening in corporate, government, and associations. Change has happens. Learn how to deal with power women.

The Gift of Knowing

I have had a long time of knowing. A long time of knowing but not necessarily believing this was my destiny. For a long time, I kept asking for my mission and my purpose. While I had many signals that directed me, I still was not sure.

My journey has been as glorious as a winding stream traveling long distances, curving, going back, and having many switchbacks. At times my stream was a rapid river of abundance and experiences, at other times it was a little trickle, still moving but by droplets. I know I was impatient, wondering and often not appreciating where I was and how I got there.

What I’ve learned is the stream will always be flowing until the day I die, only then, maybe I will have reached my destiny.

Be A Diamond Cutter

A foible is a minor weakness or eccentricity in someone’s character. Synonyms include words such as weakness, failing, shortcomings, flaws, imperfections, blemish, fault or limitations.

Humans tend to look for imperfections, comparing themselves to perfection which doesn’t exist. They search for what is wrong rather than search for what is right.

I love reading about diamonds and their value. I apply what I learn to myself and the people I work with. I want to use my knowledge to help people respect, honor and showcase their value.

Recently I read about the flaws, imperfections, and blemishes of diamonds.

“Diamonds are formed deep within the earth, under extreme heat and pressure; virtually all diamonds contain “birthmarks”, small imperfections inside the diamond (called inclusions), or on its surface (called blemishes). Clarity refers to the degree to which these imperfections are present. Diamond cutters make every effort to cut a stone so that inclusions are not visible through the table of the finished diamond.”

I love how Diamond cutters call imperfections inclusions. Every diamond has an inclusion. You are a diamond, as valuable, unique, inclusive and brilliant.

Expect Good Things to Happen To You

Wallace D. Wattles shares

“Every (wo)man has the natural and inherent power to think what he wants to think but requires far more effort to do so than it does to think the thoughts which are suggested by appearances. To think according to appearance is easy; to think truth regardless of appearances is laborious, and requires the expenditure of more power than any other work (wo)man is called upon to perform.”

You can think about what you really want to think and you can expect really good things to happen to you.

What is see is what you get. If you are seeing through a victim’s eyes, see limitations and expect failure and then that is what you will see and that is what will appear. Even when amazing, miraculous experiences are happening around you, because of your focus on negativity you won’t see the good, amazing, results.

Your Opinion Matters

Speak up, sit up because of your opinion matters.

There are legions of us women. Women who have an opinion and aren’t afraid to speak up.  From the time we were little we were heard.

These are women who see solutions and opportunities and point them out to others. As girls we were were coached to be quiet, punished and sent to detention, and often told sit down and shut up.

I had the good fortune of watching Dr. Marcia Reynold’s Tedex talk about Precocious women.   Leadership and talent development leaders will learn how to retain and promote women with opinions.

Precocious children [advanced for one’s age, forwardmaturegiftedtalentedcleverintelligentquick, smart] become precocious adults. 

When a precocious woman leads. Things get done.

Nurture Your Highest Perspective of Self

Nurture your highest perspective of self. Focus all your energy on your best self. Keep mindful of your magnificence and influence.  It isn’t easy in the world of social media and public critics. It is challenging when your biggest critic is yourself.

I wish there were blinders I could give you that would prevent you from comparing you to you (your reality now with your powerful, amazing now) and you to others.

I would rather you look at you from a higher perspective filled with the adoration, appreciation and expectation.Who you already are and who you strive to be and that you are living the story you want to live.

During my Influence coaching practice, I encounter brilliant leaders sometimes struggling with the story they tell themselves over and over and getting frustrated because they really want to live another story, what they perceive is their future story.

We work on shifting their current perception of self to their highest perspective of self. There are a lot of processes and techniques to get there.

These are five recommendations all of my leaders hear from me.

Leaders Take R.I.S.K.S.

Take the risk and grow your influence as leaders. Being a leader requires you to be willing to step out of your comfort zone, share yourself, think bigger and be bigger.

Leaders Take R.I.S.K.S.

R = Relationship

Focus on relationships and building new relationships. For me, it’s this year’s aim to have a hundred breakfast, lunch, coffee or dinner meetings. To attend gatherings so I can meet new people and connect with them one-on-one or in small groups. This is big, I like staying in and being in quiet.

I =  Illuminate Your Success

 

There is nothing wrong with highlighting successes that you have achieved.  People want to celebrate your successes. Post on Facebook and Linkedin and share your awards. Share what you’ve accomplished or have achieved lately. It makes a difference to people because they love celebrating their friends and acquaintances who have achieved. It’s also inspiring to them, so share your successes, it matters to people.

Get motivated!

get motivated

Find people who have done it before get motivated!

You don’t have to meet them in person, but you can find people online who have done what you want to accomplish. For instance, if you want to speak to sports teams you can search and look for successful speakers who have spoken to sports teams. This becomes a motivating factor, because once you know that somebody has done it, you realize you can do it too, it helps you het motivated. This has been proven time and again. Once you know then you can follow their plan or just keep in mind that if they can do it so can you. Get motivated!
