A story of a Lion who thought he was a sheep......
Once upon a time there was a lion that grew up in a flock of sheep. He had no consciousness that he was a lion. He would bleat and eat grass like a sheep.
“A leader is best when people barely know he exists when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.” — Lao Tzu
The Guru of all Guru’s in the field of EI, Daniel Goleman, Google Search Inside Yourself Institute and many other researchers proved that it’s EI that makes the difference between a truly effective leader and the rest. Intelligence (IQ) and technical skills are important for leaders too, and they are threshold capabilities. Being a leader, it is emotional intelligence that makes all the difference.
Being happy and fulfilled in life is a choice!
When I was 40 I knew two things.
I felt unfulfilled in my career, stretched between motherhood and managing a team.
I knew though that I would do anything to be happy in life.
The Power of Work-Life Balance
In current times, being “connected” 24/7, high workload and stressful situations are at the order of the day. We are mainly externally focussed, busy with “doing” instead of “being”.
We are born as human beings, not human doers, just something to think about. What would happen if we do less of doing and more of being? I found power in slowing down to go fast!
And how to create a new empowering pattern
Do you recognize that feeling of having so much to do that you feel tired? No time to do the things that inspire and motivate you? And while being so busy, if you zoom out and look for the reason why, you’ll find that you are at cause for it yourself? Then it’s time to pay attention to the NO below the YES.
Energy Flows Where Your Attention Goes
Do you recognize this feeling; so much to do, wanting to do everything at the same time and in a perfect way, work, household, children, hobbies, friends, family? And then you wonder why you have so little energy and lack of concentration? If you recognize this feeling, you can now benefit from the Power of Focus.
Your external world is a mere reflection of your inner world.
“Perception is Projection” is one of the most empowering themes of Neuro Linguistic Programming. The concept, which has its roots in Jungian psychology, tells us that what we see outside of ourselves is, at some level and in some way, a reflection of who we are on the inside.
Release your inner Dragon...
Do you want to be free of limiting beliefs and patterns? Do you want to be at peace with yourself? One thing that can help is to see how your ‘childhood dragon’ affects your relationships, your work, and life. If you can see it you can be free as it allows you to make new decisions, which will change your life.
To See is To Be Free
