Helpful Tips...

  • Explore your paradigms, or frame of reference and beliefs. It's the way you see something.
  • Be proactive instead of reactive. Proactive people make choices based on the outcome they want.
  • Come up with your own personal mission statement. Sean Covey explains it's like a personal credo or motto that states what your life is about.
  • Explore things outside of your comfort zone by stepping into the courage zone. In your courage zone you take healthy risks like sticking up for someone and making new friends.
  • Synergize by celebrating differences and working together to find better ways.
