Every Day Wisdom – Taking Responsibility, a Key to Success!

When you see a problem, you address it, hands on. If you find a solution to the problem then you put it in motion, following the process through, making sure it’s the correct way to go. If you are unable to find a solution to the answers you seek, you don’t stop there, you ask for help from those who are better equipped to assist you with your problem. But you don’t stop until there is complete resolution.

The one thing you don’t do is stick your head down and wait for someone else to fix a situation that left unresolved may turn into a more serious problem down the road.

Those that take responsibility for not only their own individual actions but also by seeking out solutions to other problems in their immediate environment, job or community, contribute to the further well being of themselves and all those around them.

If you’re an entrepreneur, and take personal responsibility for resolution and problem solving you’re creating a proactive, productive and creative atmosphere for both your employees and/or potential customers. A good trade off I’d say. Best of all you can go home feeling very good about a day’s progress.

On a final note: Opportunities are everywhere. When you take personal responsibility for figuring out how and what you’re going to do next – even with the “inspite of’s” (such as unemployment, student debt, unanticipated crises, illness, or any combination of these) you are well on your way to success whether you know it yet or not. You will be successful because you’ve created the best mental and emotional attitude possible for becoming successful. You’ve decided to be responsible for the actions in your own life by doing whatever you need to do to make it happen (and not blaming where you are – in the moment – on other people or factors) ~ Anything is conceivable if you believe it to be so. Always remember this. It’s a powerful affirmation to know and believe in. Trust me on this one.

Just know I’ll be rooting for you because I know you can do this. That you have what it takes … YOU GO ON!

Have a great week ahead,

A few thoughts to share about blogging and the computer.

We all have our own reasons about why we decide to blog. And in the process of creating and publishing our posts, answering comments and visiting other bloggers – relationships form. Why we use our computer is a little bit more than that, though.

My friend Alastair posted a very insightful article today from the Daily Post at WordPress prompting Your life without a computer: what does it look like?

a-hand-reaching-out-of-a-laptop-by-ljupco.jpgFundamentally speaking a computer is a mechanical tool for gathering and storage of information, with programs for creating with written words, audio, visual, all manner of educational and industrial formats and a form of communication with others: Personally, professionally, or with a view to entertainment or retail (the purchase of a service or product)!

So the question that comes to mind, what would your life be without a computer is based on the purposes you currently use your computer for. Social connections, creative endeavors and so on.

Without a computer we step back quite a bit into a smaller universe, where we know less about other people around the world and what is happening with them.

Without a computer, many tasks done today in the professional world would be much harder or impossible.

Without a computer, we would be less connected with both family and friends.

And without a computer, our view of the global world, would become drastically restricted. We’d have to take someone’s word for what was going on in other far off places.

A computer is about growth. Our control over (and the interactive involvement) with various social platforms located online (accessible through the computer) is about growth as well.

So I think it boils down to the question of not so much what we’d do without a computer, but how can we best utilize (optimize the advantages) the additional opportunities our computers present to us. And keeping ourselves balanced between offline lifestyles and online involvement!

Just my thoughts and perspective on this fascinating question!

The Coffee Cup of life – It’s about balance isn’t it?

Nature does it … balancing things out, working hard at keeping the ecosystem alive and running efficiently (not that we humans have exactly been helping much there).

Know that for everything that happens there is an opposing reaction to balance things out.file000704919536

A forest fire produces vibrant new growth shortly after for example.

Balance in our daily lives is important and one of the hardest things for us to get a handle on.

Whether you’re having a good time or a miserable one, balancing things out so you can move on, go forward is essential.

So a few quotes on the whole “Balance” of things in our life!

~

“The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that, and live that way, you are really a wise man” ~ Euripides

~

“What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter – a soothing, calming influence on the mind, rather like a good armchair which provides relaxation from physical fatigue.” ~ Henri Matisse

~

“In art and dream may you proceed with abandon. In life may you proceed with balance and stealth”  ~ Patti Smith
