Best Life Tip: Soft Heart, Thick Skin

SoftHeartIt could be said that World War I, which began a hundred years ago this month, started because some people in power got overly offended. That might be a slight exaggeration, but it did play a major role.

We’ve all become offended when it wasn’t justified. We’ve cared too much about being right and being properly respected and not enough about being the bigger person.

We need to develop a thick skin and maintain a soft heart. We need to be able to let people in, but not let them get under our skin.

We need the thick skin not to be caustic but rather to be compassionate. Because we can’t be compassionate when we’re irritated and offended.

Someone once told me that when we take offense, we GIVE offense. It took awhile for that to sink in, but I think there’s truth in that.

We have a choice to be right or to be happy. And it’s pretty darn rare that we can be both. Much of the time, we just have to let it go.

So don’t sweat the small stuff—and remember, it’s ALL small stuff.

Oh, the Wisdom in the Room . . .

WisdomMy New Inner Circle MasterMind is coming together very nicely indeed.

We’ve had an orientation training (now recorded) and our first MasterMind meeting is next week. We’ve set members up with bonuses, a long list of resources and plugged them into the network.

And the talent, experience, wisdom and intelligence represented is truly amazing.

We have published authors, a networking expert, a small business consultant, a life coach, a Forex trader, an attorney, sales trainer, an engineer, a doctor, financial planner, a martial arts expert, and more.

Imagine having all this expertise available to you in achieving your most important goals and objectives. Knowing you can share your challenges, ask questions, and bounce ideas off from these people as you create your best year yet is truly priceless.

We’ve not closed Inner Circle yet, but we will soon. There’s still a chance for you to participate at a VERY nominal monthly fee.

It’s all explained on this page . . .

And if you were not on the Webinar or have not listened to the replay of “How to Stay Focused All Year Like it Was the First of January”, you can still do so—although that too is scheduled to come down in just a few days. Click here to access . . .

I would love the opportunity to help you each week as you design, create and live your best life. The networking, the ideas, the resources, the connections and the PROGRESS will be exceptional.

You really can’t afford to miss out on all this has to offer. See for yourself on this page . . .

Make it a great day—and a great YEAR, with my Inner Circle MasterMind.

P.S.: I promise to inspire, motivate and challenge you throughout 2014. Join us. It’ll be fun—and you will wonder how you ever tried to go it alone.

P.P.S: Oh, do you know why all these people are going to help you get what you want? Because you’re going to help them get what THEY want.
It’s all explained on this page . . .

    I have read so many articles or reviews regarding the blogger lovers but this post is really a nice article, keep
    it up.

    I was convinced to add to the feedback as the article really stirred up some feelings within me.

    Maybe these issues can be applied across other areas too, such as the
    professional cleaning sector.

    These kind of issues need to be discussed at a higher level
    and get sorted once and for all.

    Oh well, back to cleaning my home I suppose, but I did enjoy this article immensely.

    I have been a reluctant , often prodigal member of SuccessNet for several years.(Mostly a series of health challenges!)

    The 3 C’s are part of the example they set for ‘divergent thinkers’ like me!
    I am looking forward to making ‘best use” of SN resources once again!

What’s Your Theme for 2014?

I usually have a theme for each year—something catchy and memorable to keep me focused on my most important goals.

And this year’s is the same as last year’s: “Lean and Green in 2014”. I’m lighter, earning more and helping others earn more than a year ago, but it’s still my focus. And because I’m committed to helping even more people generate more income, freedom and confidence, “Lean and Green” still works.

What’s your theme for this year? What would you like it to be?

Having a yearly theme has worked well for me and the many others whom I’ve recommended it to. And it will work for you.

We all need more focus and concentration. It’s the 2nd C of The 3C Formula (see The Achievement Code: The 3C Formula for Getting What You Truly Want). In fact, if you can accomplish your top goals without a lot of focus and intention, you probably don’t have very big goals. If so, you may want to re-evaluate.

All you have to do is select your top one or two goals and make them into a theme. It doesn’t even have to rhyme like mine ;-) .

Let me know what your theme is for 2014. You can comment on this post below or comment on our FaceBook Fan Page.

PS: If you didn’t see my brief article on listing your Tolerations for elimination, it’s on our home page.
