Me Time…

CNN headline news reported that a Mom left her Kids Alone at Home for a trip to Europe! Witty? Unbelievable? Hilarious? Crazy? Call it what you wish. But in this age of focus on self, it’s not uncommon to see people taking things a little too far (well…very far as in the case of Europe…no pun intended). Let’s make sure that we are not doing things for ourselves to the detriment of our own lives, and those of our loved ones. Now that mom will be jailed as a result of her time away. Read story here

Time Out

It’s important that we take time out. Whether it’s as a parent, entrepreneur, career professional, writer, or other. Taking a retreat will help you to refocus. This may be to attend a conference, group getaway, or self-retreat. That’s why we have planned a small group 2018 Goal-Setting Retreat at the beautiful Sanibel Beach Resort on Captiva Island in South Florida. Book your space now and put your goals into gear for next year.

Cheers!

Why Retreat?

 “Retreat is an act of moving back or withdrawing”.

Retreat is an act of moving back or withdrawing. Personally,  I consider it as an act of moving backwards to go forward. It is a purposeful act that brings meaning. It provides the opportunity to reflect on life, on our existence. To identify who we are, and where we want to be. In essence, taking stock.

Self-Retreat

A self-retreat is one where you go off by yourself. You take the time to re-discover yourself in light of what you do. It may involve shedding some things that you need to let go of in order to reconnect with yourself and build your self-awareness. You do this through the Rhyme of reflection which can lead to self-discovery, self-development, as well as increased self-esteem, and self-love.  Renewal of the self is important. It is by no means Willy-nilly.

Ways to Retreat

For years my company organized retreats. We would do it for all employees, departments, or at the managerial level in order to drive the year’s annual goals. It proved to be an exercise that I have valued throughout time.

That said, retreats can be elaborate or quite simple. It can be at a resort, at a conference or Goal Setting Retreat, in a cabin in the woods, or a simple retreat in your own home. At-home-retreats can be risky due to the distraction of everyday life. But if you are disciplined and create that ‘away’ space for the duration of your retreat, it can still be quite useful. Hey, better to do something than nothing.

Just as long as the purpose is being met a retreat can be a transformational experience. It gives you the time to focus on you, your goals, desires and what brings you complete satisfacton. It illuminates self care, letting go, and open things up to new possibilities.

Why not use today to plan your retreat? As we approach yearend we start reflecting on our goals. Are we close, drifting, or far away? Choose to attend this Goal Setting Retreat designed to help you close the gaps.  If you have been doing retreats throughout time, what has been your most satisfying experience? Do share.

Does Being Rich Make You Successful?

img_4137-1

I have always been fascinated by the topic of Success. So much that I decided to do three (3) years of research on success and leadership. I interviewed leaders at the top of their organizations to find out what they considered to be the traits that led to their success, and the Challenges they had to overcome. Then I was lucky enough to have the findings published in the Journal of American Academy of Business Cambridge (JAABC), as well as other books.

These days when I go around to speak or attend conferences and events, I take the opportunity to find out what success means to individuals. Listen to Miko Branch Founder and CEO of Miss Jessie’s as she shares her definition of success. Miko is recognized as Pioneer for transforming the haircare industry for natural and curly hair.

Brian Tracy asked the question “Does Being Rich Make You Successful?” Responses came in many forms from those responding “YES–But“, to the more common “No’ responses giving their reasons why.

Thinking further about this Pest-like Lusted phenomenon that defies many, I heard of an ailing executive rolling in the $$$, who had an incurable condition. He was asked the question to which he replied that he would give all his money in exchange for life.

Isn’t that crazy? What most dream and become obsessed about, those who have it would exchange it for life’s normal everyday living.

Define Success

Personally, I believe it is important to define what Success Means to you. It’s no Coincidence. How will you know when you have achieved it? Defining it helps you to visualize your expectations, whether it is to be ‘rich’, get an education, start a family, land that dream job, or become that all time successful entrepreneur. Whatever your goal for success, take the step today to achieve it.

Now its your turn. Do you believe being rich makes you successful? Can’t wait to hear your take.

Cheers!
