Mastery

Mastery

“If neither the positive or negative future has happened, then why not choose to  believe in the positive future? The key word is “choose!” – Cynthia Kivland

So you have to make a choice, and this choice determines whether you thrive or survive. The key is how you choose to master your emotional brain. According to Joshua Freedman, COO Six Seconds, fear and hope both have something in common: a future that has not happened. Fear believes in a future with limited options. Hope believes in a future with possibilities. When you master the intelligence of your emotions and social connections, you live in an environment that lets you breathe and develop your greatness.

Attraction

Attraction

“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”   – Mark Twain

Greatness is a state of being that is experienced when you attract the people, experiences and outcomes that bring out your personal best and the personal best of others. It is not a condition of achievement. You have an understanding of how to help others be great. The Universal Law of Attraction states that you attract or distract everything that happens in your life – and what you can do to deliberately attract more of what we really want.

“Self-confidence is not something that you get once and for all – rather it requires periodic experiences that renew it.”  – Author Unknown



Resilience

Resilience

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs

 

Resilience is the ability to persevere and adapt when things aren’t going the way we’d like. It is mentally, and often physically, stepping back, to examine and reflect on a situation and then, determine the best action. When we act resiliently, we act from a proactive place of power instead of a reactive place of fear.

These tools will help you explore resilience from a proactive not reactive mindset and behavior. You will learn that resilience is the ability to PERSIST even when things are happening just like you expected them to; to NAVIGATE through uncertain and unpredictable times; to TRANSCEND common problems and barriers; and to build RESERVES to thrive in the future.

To understand how to use the SMARTER Resilience tools, refer to Chapter 7 in Smart2Smarter.

“Whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you’ll find that when you’re free . . . your true self comes out.” – Tina Turner



Tolerance

Tolerance

“Talent, skills or personality do not explain why some of us continue to thrive and evolve. When you reach for your goals or dreams and comfort zones expand, amazingly you will find ways to breathe.” – Cynthia Kivland

 

Tolerance is the ability to accept, acknowledge and appreciate different cultures, people, ideas, perspectives and beliefs. Put simply, it is the ability to cultivate opportunities through diverse people, events and experiences. Tolerance is also the ability to recognize and eliminate behaviors, thoughts and habits that hold you back from being your personal best. The tools below provide a first step on how to develop tolerance.

To understand how to use the SMARTER Tolerance tools, refer to Chapter 8 in Smart2Smarter.

Evolve

Evolve

“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful. ” – Mark Victor Hansen.

 

All behavior is driven by emotional energy that moves you toward or away from a desired goal. Emotionally healthy people achieve their goals unless they allow distracting or hi jacking “energy” to disengage their passion, steering one of the path of evolution. Evolution tools explore the process of personal, professional, spiritual and relational evolution by using the intelligence of emotions to thrive and not just survive. The smarter definition of evolution is the ability to continuously improve, initiate and innovate. There is no end game when evolving.

Reciprocity

Reciprocity

“Today we are faced with the pre-eminent fact that, if civilization is to survive, we must cultivate the science of human relationships.”  – Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1945

Why should you care about developing the smarter skill of Reciprocity? When people feel good, they work better, are more creative and productive. Good feelings are like lubrication for the brain – mental efficiency goes up, memory is sharpened, and people can understand directions and make better decisions. Studies have shown this to be true when it comes to the ability to lead and be led. Emotions are contagious.
