Time Management – Spread your Grace and Blessings Freely
Spread your Grace and Blessings Freely
This time management intervention will show you that, almost everyone I have met wants to make a difference during their lifetimes, to leave some sort of a legacy after they have completed their last revolution around the sun. Making a difference is not just about volunteering to assist people, who come from a less advantaged background than you do. If you want to begin making a real difference, it is time to shift your thinking away from seeing making a difference as an event or something you must do. Make the shift today and start to see, making a difference, as a new way of being. See it as a new way of conducting yourself. This shift albeit small and subtle, will allow you to really start making a real and lasting difference, every day in your own unique way.
What Effect do you have on Your World?
Everyone that you come into contact with on a daily basis can be either positively or negatively affected by your presence. As you go through your day you are both the cause and effect of many different situations, which will develop in the future. From a very simplistic perspective, you are either someone, who will create solutions or create challenges for the people in your environment.
Think about your life, past and present, try to visualise everyone you have had contact with over the years. They either helped you to find solutions and contentment in your life or they caused you to encounter challenges, which you had to solve. People are either the cause of contentment and joy, where they energise you and add value to your life or they drain your energy and bring you challenge.
I hear you say that there are also neutral people that do not affect you at all. My experience has shown me that the only difference between recognising someone as a value adder or an energy sapper is the amount of time you spend with them. After spending enough time with anyone they will fall into either of the two categories.
Explore your Past
Dare to explore your past interactions with these same people once again. This time ask a different question. How did these people feel about their interaction with you? Were you someone that added value to their lives or were you the person that sapped their energy and caused them discomfort? If you cannot answer emphatically that you are someone, who adds value to everyone around you, it is time to make a few small, yet crucial changes to the way you think and present yourself to the world.
To begin the process of changing the attitude that you are projecting to the world, try to introduce these few simple ideas into your life:
- Wake up every day and consciously start your day in a state of grace and gratitude. Invest at least five minutes at the start of your day exploring all the wonderful things you have going on in your life, for which you can be really grateful. This may seem difficult at first, but with practice, you will be amazed at all the good you have going on when you dare to search and discover.
- Aspire to encourage and assist as many people as possible throughout your day. Look around your world with an open and caring mind-set and ask a better question. “Who can I help and how can I help them to be happier and more fulfilled”? I do offer a caveat here, give freely to inspiration and never empower desperation.
- Try to only make deposits of energy and genuine authenticity into the lives of everyone you come into contact with. Maintain a positive outlook throughout the day and constantly aspire to exude good positive energy.
- Smile as often as possible and be willing to share your grace with everyone around you. A smile costs nothing, but adds so much to your world. Share as many smiles as possible every day.
Share your Grace Freely – It is more Abundant than you could ever imagine
Your ability to share your grace with everyone around you is limitless. Begin to give freely to inspiration and remain committed to make deposits of energy and grace into the lives of others, all the time. When you live in this modality, the same wonder and grace you consistently radiate into your world, will be reflected back at you. You will become the recipient of incredible blessings and grace wherever you go. You can very quickly become a person of value and someone, who can make a real difference to the world. All that is required is a small shift towards grace and a willingness to try to make a real difference to everyone you touch within your environment.
Grace comes from Consistent Commitment
Andrew conducts this time management workshop to show you that, whatever gets measured gets done. So set yourself a goal each day to begin spreading your blessings and grace. Stay committed to keep doing this until your attitude of grace and blessing becomes an integral part of who you are. What you really want is to create a grace and blessings habit set. The person that will benefit the most from this new attitude is YOU!!!!
