This week we are going to talk about Step Two: Developing a New Perspective in 10 minutes a day.  Yes, you need to develop a new perspective because a  new mindset=new results. Developing a new perspective starts when you stop denying where we are stuck or stalled.  Self-awareness is not only the start of the leadership journey, it is pivotal to our individual and collective happiness and success. Let’s face it, thinking, communicating or executing the way you have in the past cannot and will not take you forward. Realize the power of seeing your story with new eyes, experiencing what typically has you stuck, stalled or frustrated in a new way, from a new perspective that will help you succeed and retain your peace of mind.    Read more

Do not ask what, ask why?  Before you do anything ask yourself why you are doing it. Simon Sinek wrote a brilliant book, a must read, Start With Why. Knowing your “why” will build greater self-awareness and is a linchpin for greater happiness and success.  Click here to watch Simon Sinek’s TED talk, Start With Why.

●Take at least two opportunities to reframe and reinterpret events so that you can start to find new meanings and solutions. Take your initial perspective, depersonalize it and turn it around. Yes, argue for the other side. Take up to ten minutes a day to journal what you have reframed and reinterpreted.

Find one limitation/barrier and decide to transcend it.  If you are uncomfortable making small talk, do just that. If you are always in overdrive, ask yourself why you are doing what you are doing and slow down.  Perhaps you hate to get up early?  Transcend it by starting the day 15 minutes earlier.  Pick anything you like and transcend it.

Ask yourself the right questions, expand your horizons, empower your best self and improve your ability to develop different perspectives.  Most of all, know that you have the power to make small changes that will drive transformational changes that help you succeed to purpose!
