Lessons from Miami Beach

We are in Miami now. I have wanted to come here for as long as I can remember. I have no doubt that I am going to have the experience of a lifetime and come home with some incredible memories. I also have no doubt that I am going to experience my fair share of plastic, “Ken and Barbie” style living and lots of glamour and glitz. And that’s okay too because it reminds me that I can enjoy all walks of life and all experiences and stay true to myself. Let’s take Key Steps this week together and…

Be authentic

  1. Understand what it actually means to be authentic. I often see that people don’t understand what being authentic is and even stranger is that we actually think we can accurately judge someone else’s authenticity. We can’t. Being authentic is a very personal thing and is not necessarily about heading off to the mountains, forsaking worldly pleasures and singing Kumbaya – unless that is what you genuinely want to do. Because authenticity is associated with not acting like someone else and voicing your own truths. It means NOT being pressured into decisions or judgments by outside influences. It is about trusting YOUR heart and your gut instinct and following it no matter what. When did you last stop and really listen to what that inner voice was telling you to do…? Do it now and you can join us for our Assertive Communication and Conflict Management workshop where we will explore this and take Key Steps to live and work more authentically.
  2. Know your definition of success? This is easier said than done, isn’t it? Is it money? A house? A car? An annual family holiday overseas? Interestingly enough, monetary gains are hardly ever part of the initial definition of success for really successful people. Their definitions usually stem from things like hard-work, education, perseverance, active family engagement and making a difference in the world. But money is often the by-product of a successful life. I am very comfortable sharing that money is a VERY important by-product for me. Well, not the money itself but rather what it allows me to do (educate my family, provide for them, help in my community and have lots of fun in crazy Miami J). I am sure you can guess my real definition of success (hint, it is at the bottom of every email I send you) and it is also what I wish for you this week… that you will come to know your definition of success and…
