Hello and Welcome!
Happy Valentine’s Day! (almost! ❤️ )
We’re back with Part 2 of the A-Z of Positive thinking. We’re covering N-Z this time. If you missed part 1, you can find it here: Part 1
So, continuing on… 😊
N- n is for negotiable.
Negotiate. Sometimes we have to compromise on the terms of our goal or the means of achieving a goal. If we are working with others it’s sometimes a bit of give and take, and then everyone ends up a winner.
O- O is for open.
Keep an open mind. There’s more than one way to achieve a task. It’s good to have our plan, to know what we intend to do, and how, but try to keep an open mind. One of your advisors might have a better way to do something. Or you might come across something that gives you a better idea. Keep an open mind … be open to innovation and change.
P-P is for purpose.
Have a purpose for what you are doing. What do you hope this will bring to you as a person as an Entrepreneur, or a business person, and what will it contribute to others. What is your purpose in this role that you have chosen for yourself. Be clear on that point so that you can steer in the right direction.
Q- Q is for quality.
Do things to the best of your ability. Try not to cut corners. Try not to go for “good enough”. Do your best, be known for presenting, for representing a quality product. Be a person of your word. Be known as a quality person.
R- R is for ready.
When opportunity knocks be ready. Be prepared. Have the training that prepares you to know your business. So if someone asks you about your work, you are clear and you can tell them. If someone gives you an opportunity to do something you’ve always wanted to do, be ready. Have that training, that preparedness, that will help you be ready to swing into action at any point in time. Sometimes we just get a big chance and we’ve got to go for it right then.
S- S is for smile.
Smiling is so easy and it can lift our spirits. It can help others to be more open to us. If we are confident in ourselves and are relaxed, a smile can send out the most wonderful positive vibrations to others. And if we look in the mirror it can make even ourselves feel better. Of course do take care to be in an appropriate situation for smiling… Right Place Right times. 😉
T- T is for thankful.
Be thankful, be grateful for where you are right now. For the people in your life who help you, your friends your family your mentors. Be grateful that you can help others. You do have a skill… you do have a talent. You do have a gift that is useful to others.
U- u is for useful.
You have a purpose, a talent a place on this planet. You are useful. You can help others with your gifts. Be confident. You are important.
V-v is for value.
Value yourself. Value your time. Value your service. Don’t let anybody sell you short. Don’t let anybody under value your worth or the worth of your product. It’s ok to bargain. It’s ok to negotiate, but know your bottom line. Your service is quality, useful,and worth every pence.
W- w is for wisdom.
When we are working on the specific actions, details of our goals or objectives, use wisdom. There are so many places where we can find information nowadays. We can Google we can go to the YouTube and find many instructional videos, we can find mentors or people whom we respect their opinion, and ask them if they can help or brainstorm with us for ideas or methods to carry out our project. Or we can join a mastermind group where we share our expertise and knowledge to help each other.
Xenia is the ancient Greek concept of hospitality, the generosity and courtesy shown to those who are far from home or associates of a person. We never know who we will meet at any event or at any time who might be helpful to us or whom we might be able to help,or who might know someone who would be good for us to meet. So it’s good to show generosity and courtesy to everyone no matter what their status. Build up a far-reaching network of like minded people.
Y- is for you.
You are special. You are important. You have just the skill that the right audience, the right people, the right companies, or looking for. You must be confident in yourself so that you have the endurance, the enthusiasm, and the sense of knowing that you are going to achieve your goal, that you are going to be helpful to as many people as possible. You are in charge of you. When it comes down to it it’s up to you and your persistence, and your determination.
Z- z is for zeal.
For enthusiasm…for believe in yourself that is unshakable. If one door of opportunity closes, your zeal your vigor will help you to find another one. Your zeal will pick you up when ordinarily you might have just given up. Your zeal enthusiasm will attract wonderful things to you and your preparation will make you well equipped to handle them. Your positive zeal will keep a smile on your face and put a smile on most everyone else’s.
So, we can think of many other good qualities worth possessing. What’s on your list?
Let’s share & help each other!
