“I’ve not heard that before, would you say that again?” an audience member asked me.
“If you’re looking for a good romantic partner find someone who is kind and flexible,” I emphasized.
When you really want to succeed, remove the blocks so you are kind and flexible.
Our thinking needs flexibility. However, our habitual thoughts can constrict our thinking.
I have a metaphor about flexibility: Every day I do exercises to keep my neck and back flexible.
I’m looking to be flexible in my thinking, too – so I study a number of books. I have the thoughts, research and feelings of a number of people in mind.
The Power of a Flexible Perspective
I’ve learned that …
Life can place you into a new chapter at any time.
Still, you can declare that you are now beginning a new chapter of life.
Why is this helpful? You are declaring your flexibility. Over the years, I’ve learned to adapt when life has tossed in a surprising, tough situation.
One of my favorite quotes is:
“In truth, I am a verb.” – Steve Chandler
When you think of yourself as a verb, you are free! Other people may look at their past behavior and give themselves a noun or label like “shy person.”
Instead, you can change your behavior. As a child, I acted like a shy kid. As an adult, I take courageous action. Then I’m courageous.
Develop Your Flexibility
Nina, one of my clients, said, “I don’t take vacations.”
Then an opportunity arose, and Nina considered taking a vacation. Upon her taking that vacation, I commented: “You are now a person who takes vacations. Prosperous, calm, and happy people take vacations.”
Why is taking a vacation a good idea?
It’s about refreshing yourself and keeping yourself flexible. You also get access to your intuition, and then you can come up with Leap-Up Ideas that could vastly improve your business.
[By the way, a vacation can be two days. Or you could declare a mini-vacation of “I’m taking the afternoon off.”]
Don’t block your blessings. Don’t let doubt stop you from getting where you want to be. – Jennifer Hudson
Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. – Ray Bradbury
Remember to cultivate two powerful practices: be kind to yourself and others – and be flexible.
