Mount Rushmore was inspired by
incredible men who accomplished amazing feats by harnessing the power
of adversity. Overcoming the adversities of life can reward you with
an exhilarating feeling of strength and accomplishment. While most
people run from adversities, the true leader embraces adversity and
uses it as a slingshot to propel themselves forward.
Many find that mentoring relationships
are a prominent key to rapid personal growth. The mentoring process

Every person carries around hidden
mental bricks that weigh us down and prohibit us from living our
lives to the fullest. By embracing a structured process for
ridding the mind of these weights, we spark a new level of unstoppable
self confidence that opens the door to unimaginable opportunities.
Fear is one of the greatest obstacles
to personal growth and the ultimate success in life. Even the greatest
highest achievers struggle from fear and anxiety from time to time. By
learning proven strategies to overcome fear, we can truly life live to
the fullest and realize our greatest ambitions.
Enthusiasm is contagious, and
generates it's own momentum. Rise to the challenge, and practice sparking enthusiasm in yourself and
others each and every day. It is interesting to find this trait of not
just remaining enthusiastic but also spreading the same feeling to
others amongst every leader, irrespective of the sphere of his
leadership. We call them by several names: vivacious, charismatic,
dynamic and so on. What they essentially do is to instill the fire in
the belly of all those who come next to them. They instill courage,
self-confidence, and self-belief amongst their subordinates, team
members and colleagues.
only feature of life which is permanent is change. Whether you accept
it or not, whether you are prepared for it of not, people, situations,
values, beliefs, in fact, practically everything both inside and
outside us change. When change is inevitable, especially in a
corporate environment, the best thing to do is to play strategic and
swim with the tide - with the best intentions of proving your worth.
Allow the old to pave way for fresh blood, fresh ideas and fresh
challenges which must be met with courage and grace. Accept change as
a quintessential part of life. Be willing to surrender what you are,
for what you could become.
you have the will to take tough times in stride, you could come out of
it with flying colors. Take extra initiatives to do those activities
and meet such confident and enthusiastic people. If possible, remain
surrounded by them, till you have come out of the phase valiantly.
While coping with tough times, the important thing to do is to believe
in your inner strengths and your core competencies and take this time
to build them even stronger.
Assertiveness comes from supreme self-confidence, knowledge about the
subject and overall self-reliance. One of the biggest confusions which
rest in most peoples' minds is that they can not understand the fine
line of difference between assertiveness and aggressiveness. I believe
assertiveness is mastering the art of making a point without hurting
any sentiment whatsoever. You can do this when you have supreme level
of self-confidence and know what you are talking better than anyone
else in the room.
one who has tried to help others would know that it is not a very easy
task to 'help' someone, even though he may desperately need it. Yet
some of the world's greatest souls have made their mark in the world
by simply 'helping' others. If you take up this challenge with all
sincerity and seriousness in purpose for a stretch of 21 days, you
would be surprised at the change it brings to your life. Fresh avenues
of opportunities open up from nowhere, your mind becomes more
compassionate and suddenly the world becomes a better place to live
must realize the importance of being an encourager in which ever role
you play in life. Be it parent, superior, colleague, supervisor, field
worker or whatever role you are playing at this instant, needs
encouragement and which you must provide to others to get the best
actions from others. One of the first things which an encourager can
achieve is he can build and sustain a good team. Employees in an
organization would hardly think of switching jobs if they get a
superior who constantly nudges them to move forward with his
encouraging words, even in the face of adversity.
Being creative is not just learning to paint a good picture or writing
a novel. The need for creativity lurks at every corner of our lives.
Without being creative we can hardly solve the plethora of problems
which plague our daily lives. The more curious you become about being
more creative, the more would be the revelation of your own unique
creativity which right now lie latent within you.
Tough times are nothing new to us. All of us go through it many times
over in our lives. Many such tough times happen as part of the
societal growth or adverse situations which are beyond our control.
Examples could be loss of job due to downsizing, lack of money due to
inflation, debts or ill health in the family, loss of a dear one, and
so on. A tough time results in our losing mental composure as well as
loss of self confidence and esteem. In short, we have created the
cloud ourselves and have decided to get blinded by our own judgment
Though perennial doomsayers are as part of life as anything else, this
does not mean that you get bogged down by their pessimism. The basic
truth about such people that I have come to realize is that any
attempt to change them is fruitless. So it that is ruled out, the best
strategy is to gear up your mind to face such doomsayers with as much
patience and understanding as possible and then make your quick exit
from such company.
power of positive thinking can be unlimited. Not only do you spread
cheer and good humor around, you become a self-styled leader wherever
you go because you take people along with you as you walk through
life. Each of us are the way we are due to several factors out of
which our upbringing, our beliefs and values formed during our
formative years play a major role.
Mixing with happy children even for a few hours in a day provides
impact in your mind and can provide you some mental relaxation as no
therapy can. you can derive tremendous joy and piece of mind
especially during troubled times. Surprise them, teach them, play with
them, sing and dance with them and it's a another world. You
