The world of work can be like a maze. Lots of different routes we can take but at times we pass by alternative paths without even noticing them. All consumed by the one we are on.
Sometimes we have colleagues who could help us find our way more effectively. Many of us don’t ask for fear of seeming weak or inexperienced.
Our colleagues get to know us through our actions. Sometimes we don’t act in the most effective or professional way. We can get caught up in thinking and perhaps block others out and see them as an annoyance or a distraction. This can really harm our relationships.
So perhaps it’s time to take a new look at our behaviour in the workplace and really start to make this most of the opportunities that have been hidden from us.
Recognising our thoughts as just thoughts is the first step. Think of thoughts like a rainbow. Definitely there but you could never touch them. There is no point getting bogged down in thoughts, they are not reality. We need to learn to let them pass by, this way things will start to flow. Once we have realised this life can seem lighter, brighter, less serious and full of inspiration.
Once we are seeing life in a more open minded way we notice opportunities that we didn’t see before.
We realise that communication skills are key to success in every area. Cultivating genuine kindness to those around us can make things work so much better. People will return kindness and when you need help it will be there for you. The more people think of you the better you will perform.
Asking questions like a beginner can actually get us a long way. Often those with more experience than us have been wondering the same thing but haven’t wanted to ask. Being genuine in our quest for knowledge can earn us real respect.
So don’t let worries about what others think of you stop you getting on. They are after all, just thoughts. Be brave, be bold but be yourself. Get on and be the best you can be, others will love you for it. Most importantly you will love the new you!
Come on a revitalise day and start to free your thoughts. Open your mind to some new possibilities. Reveal the creative, vibrant person inside.
