MOTIVATION: THE GROWTH FACTOR

 THE GROWTH FACTOR
Wondering why you're always pushed aside when tasks or responsibilities are been disseminated?
Or are you been removed from the equation when serious decisions that can make or mar one's future are been made?
Take it easy. It's not that you are useless or not needed.

We all as humans are ' work in progress'. When a person is not qualified for a position, he isn't promoted to the position.
In the pathway of life, there are different stages, each attracting different challenges, commitments and responsibilities.
The higher the stage, the complex the responsibilities coupled with equivalent challenges.
Considering how we evolve or grow as humans, we have 3 phases; 1) ' The baby' 2) ' Adolescent' 3) ' Adult'

DEALING WITH DIFFICULT PEOPLE

Have you ever had to deal with a difficult person at one point in time?

If no, you should thank your stars that you are not acquainted with someone who is difficult to deal with.

Most, if not all of us are bound to partner with certain people at our workplace, social functions, within our family tree or elsewhere who seem to have the ability to pull our triggers and oftentimes derive pleasure in it.

Difficult people come in several ways. They can introduce themselves in many ways. Some never keep to promises or time. Some talk, talk and talk but barely listen. Others criticize anything they did not create.

Regardless of the variety in which they come, they all have one thing in common. You must address them.

Dealing with difficult people is a must. It can't get any better when left unattended  or unaddressed.

However, no matter the condition, the way we choose to respond is within our control.

MOTIVATION: IF YOUR SHIP DOESN'T COME IN, SWIM OUT TO IT!

IF YOUR SHIP DOESN'T COME IN, SWIM OUT TO IT!

Yes, it seems funny but just like a coin with two sides, it's also a serious statement.

For how long are you going to wait for the best time or the perfect opportunity?

For how long will you wait for the ship to get to you? Will you still wait for it to cruise by,set to pick you but not close enough for you to conveniently step in?

Swim out to its direction as soon as it gets closer.

Yes! Luck can change your status. But how often does it come by? Wishful thinking is okay but it should be just the starting point. That canoe of wishful thinking can't take you far. You need a plan and also need to take ACTIONS, not just wishing.

Each time you see the opportunity fading away, all you do is wonder if it will come back. But sadly enough, most times, it doesn't. Then you're stuck because you didn't rise up to take the challenge.

You have to rise up, consider carefully your options and then take hold of the opportunity.

MOTIVATION: HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE

7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE( Book summary)

Nowadays, most people look for short cuts. They see a successful entrepreneur, organization or team and ask, How did you do it? Teach me your strategies.

But, these ' quick fixes' that we crave for just to save time and or effort and still achieve the desired results will yield short- term solutions.

The author, Covey writes, " the way we see the problem is the problem." He believes that the way we see the world is solely based on our own perceptions.

That's where the seven habits of highly effective people comes to play.

1) ' Be proactive': This is what differentiates us as humans from all other animals. It's our inbuilt ability to examine our character,  decide how to view situations and control our effectiveness.

PSYCHOLOGICAL WAYS OF FACING CONFLICT

Conflict occurs at all levels of interaction, at work, with families, among friends and between lovers.

It's a fact of life, and it isn't necessarily a bad issue. Offenses do come. In fact, a relationship with frequent conflicts may be healthier than one with no observable conflict which most times are silently kept in the dark room of anger in our hearts.

You should never be afraid to enter into a confrontation. So often, we want everyone to like us and  think we're a nice person. This obviously isn't possible.

Many compound this by adding a layer of self-righteous religiosity to the mix. They feel like it will be a sin to criticize a member of a team, even constructively, and thus smile and nod and accept less than desirable outcomes.

Yes, conflict can be a critical event in the course of a relationship. The relationship may be weakened or strengthened.

 However, whether a relationship is healthy or not doesn't depend so much…

BUSINESS ISSUES: APPREHENDING A MOLE

APPREHENDING A MOLE

Commonly, in every organization, gathering, company, industry, sector or establishment( be it private or public), there is always a mole.

If you are a christian reading this, you will likely remember that there was someone we could also refer to as a mole among the twelve disciples of Jesus, in person of Judas Iscariot.

It is no new thing when one of such is being discovered or apprehended after a long period of time.

Definitely, the height of damage these set of fearless, heart-rending and highly dangerous individuals have done, are still doing and will most likely do  in years to come cannot and should not be underestimated.

This therefore brings us to the BIG QUESTIONS;
1) Who is a mole?
2) How do they work or operate?
3) How can one successfully apprehend them?

WHO IS A MOLE?

  A mole is a spy, a double agent( one who pretends to spy for one government or establishment while actually spying for another) who establishes a cover long before beginning espionage.
