Think Twice – and make it another day of paradise… When we pass someone in need – even having the energy to notice something is wrong means that we have available resources. In my opinion available resources and capacity carry responsibility and the gift of meaningful change. In our everyday life it also means taking care of those around us.
Phil Collin sang one of my favorite song “Another Day in Paradise” – and still when I hear it I wish I could have helped more people I met in the street, or even people around me reacting strongly to something showing me that they were out of balance. I know myself when I am out of balance I less of the person I wish to be that when I am happy and doing well.
Think twice. The people around us all go through different emotional, physical or spiritual challenges and therefore are we all at some point in our lives in need of caring support. If we wish to change something there are only two options creating a crisis or overwhelming someone with understanding, love and encouragement. Fear feeds negative energies pushing people father out of their comfort zone and creates a downward spiral of eclipsing people in a box, making them unable to think creatively and find new ways. They might find a solution, yet it is one of survival and never the best option.
Encouragement and the attempt to understand the other party feed positive energy and hope. Hope and positive energy create an up-ward going spiral of openness to new ways, innovation, a sense of a bigger picture, longterm solutions benefitting all parties involved. These solutions leaves people and organizations energized and building new options where everyone involved live a more wealthy lives; wealth as in happiness, energy to follow their dreams, for those who do business it additionally makes their finances stronger.
Think twice. In business, it is not just ourselves building a stronger personal leadership. We need to care for our entire stakeholder-chain. It can be our suppliers who need a little less squeezing on prices as they already have given what was possible during the crisis, it can be our clients who is in either personal or corporate stress and need new solutions, services or products to find energy to what we already offer, it can be your own boss who has been under extreme pressure from a divorce and scrutinized by the shareholders who now have little energy for you and your challenges – whomever we are faced with reacting in a negative, a pushy or retiring manor, think twice – and reach out in a caring way.
We are all human – we are all here to learn and to grow, hence we are all challenged in our own ways. Some are more conscious about the reasons for the different challenges than others and some challenges feels more overwhelming than others.
Think twice. Rich or poor – the only difference is that rich have more financial resources and can help with little effort of having the mental resources and awareness to notice.
Think twice… No matter who you are.
On my “Treasure – Change the World Tour” I meet many different cultures, see many different people in various settings and talk to high and low, broad and narrow. I have met CEO’s, actors, film producers, people in the street, students, cashiers in banks and supermarkets, waiters, housewives of fortunate and less fortunate families, children, etc. They all have one thing in common – they all wish to be acknowledged, taken notice of, be taken care of and to be able to take care of those they love and care for.
Think twice… and we will together care for a better world.
I care for you!
Best of energies,
