Learning to Flourish in the Dark

Do you feel like you are able to be your best self at work? The majority of us are working hard to earn a paycheck every two weeks. We strive for our work to feel good. We want to be inspired by positive energy and to be encouraged to perform at our best levels.

However it’s an unfortunate truth that some of us feel that we cannot blossom at our jobs. We don’t feel good. We are surrounded by negative energy. And as for feeling encouraged to work at our best levels? Forget about it!

Instead we are held back by fear. We bring our personal insecurities to the office. We fear another colleague’s judgment. We face bosses who are never satisfied, no matter what we do or how hard we work. We face put downs, cynicism, belittling treatment, and smug looks.

It’s easy to allow such treatment to paralyze. It’s easy to allow others to prevent us from trying our best and putting our best face forward. How can we be expected to flourish in a place of darkness? By shining our own brilliant light!

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

The hard truth is that we need these chiselers in our life to help shape us into becoming the best version of ourselves. We will never reach our potential and we will never maximize our true abilities unless we face hardships. We CAN overcome the naysayers, the grouches, the mean-spirited. Slowly, steadily, but surely we can begin to flourish and create our own positive energy to push us through.

Reflect, breathe deep, and perform like never before!

Be a winner. Overcome fear. Soar on your job.

You CAN do this.

What Type of Colleague Are You?

What type of colleague are you?

Have you ever asked yourself that question? Have you ever thought to take a moment to take your eyes off other colleagues and to instead really look at yourself from within?

What do you see?  Do you see someone who readily points fingers at other colleagues, blaming them for everything?

Or do you see someone who sees things for what they are and with a good spirit and heart? Someone who endeavors to pursue not just your success and joys of work but that of others?

Do you assist others in doing and being the best that they can be at work or are you gleeful about their ‘failures’?

What spurs you on: throwing others under the carpet or celebrating a victory for all on the job?

Are you the colleague who will aide others to succeed, buoy them up when they are down, or scheme to make their lives even more miserable?

Do you assist your fellow colleagues, lend a kind hand, say a kind word, champion them on, nurture and bolster them?

We can all work harder to make the work place a better place for each other. Let’s begin by asking ourselves the tough questions about how we contribute to the joy or the misery of others at our work places. After all we are colleagues, we are people, and all of us are valuable and precious, and do not deserve abuse or denial to be the best that we can be.

We all deserve to excel, and sometimes it just takes a kind word, a slight urging and encouragement, a moment where we are treated with decency and dignity. It works wonders for our productivity.

What will you do this day, this week, this month, to support, stimulate, uphold and motivate a fellow colleague?

The choice is always ours; our freewill can assist or destroy. What do you choose?
