I’m Ok With Weakness

Kimberism: The greatness of a man’s power is the measure of his surrender.”~William Booth I am the type of person that has an extremely tenacious nature. I can do a lot in my own strength. Just to confirm and realign this tendency I received a heavenly reminder through a girl friend’s dream. In the dream we were in a boat when suddenly the motor broke down. Immediately I got out of the boat and with sheer determination proceeded to pull the boat to shore. Ha! That is pretty telling isn’t it? The fact of the matter is there are plenty of times in life when what we need most is not more strength, more determination, or more will power.  I have discovered that as important as intentional action is to getting where we want to go, there are times when we need to remove ourselves from our agenda, lay it down and simply step aside for a greater grace.

Heaven is Missing An Angel

Kimberism: “All you need is ignorance and confidence and the success is sure.” Mark Twain One of my daughter’s top 5 strengths determined from an Assessment is”Self-Assurance.” Her brother’s whole heartily agree. They know well that their fashionable sister never hesitates to wrestle, or swat them back, managing to hold her own. I love that! Another thing I love is that Chloe’s morning wake up alarm is set to play, “Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel.” I hear it every morning while sipping my cup of tea. It brings a smile to my face as I think of her heading out for the day to confidently serve celebrity clientele. She makes no qualms about her personal style which is what makes a great stylist stand out.

How Is Your Development Quota?

Kimberism: “When you live up to your greatness the whole world is made better. The world can not afford for you to choose average or easy.” Erwin R. McManus Several months ago I was inspired to compile a list of the many investments I have made over the last eight years in areas of personal, and business development. When ever I feel stalled in life, or business I quickly remind myself of the vast investments I have made to consistently grow and develop my self personally and professionally. I recommend you do the same. If you discover that your list is slim to nothing, or consistently contains the same types of training or programs, you are faced with a huge opportunity to shake things up and begin to nurture greater development in your life and business.

Levels of Change

Kimberism: All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.  ~Anatole France

Many of you may be familiar with Maslow’s hierarchy of needs a theory proposed by psychologist Abraham Maslow in his 1943 paper A Theory of Human Motivation. In his theory he created a hierarchy of levels that exist around peoples needs. Obviously our most basic needs are biological and physiological centering around survival, food, shelter, warmth, sleep etc.

Once basic security is reached the Maslow’s heirarchy continues ascending into greater levels of intimacy, love, belonging, self-esteem, confidence, achievement and respect. While the first 2 tiers relate to external factors, the more external needs are met the advancement becomes internal. 

Maslow’s final level is called self-actualization and this is where an individual begins to focus on creativity, spontaneity, problem solving, lack of judgment, accepting of facts and development of spirituality. The dictionary defines self-actualization as: “the achievement of one’s full potential through creativity, independence, spontaneity, and a grasp of the real world.”

Sharpening Intuition

Kimberism: “All great men are gifted with intuition. They know without reasoning or analysis, what they need to know.” Alexis Carrel   As much as we like the idea of being free to do whatever we want suggested in the phrase, “If it feels good do it,” I find that the converse exhortation applies well in life. If it doesn’t feel good, you may need to pass on the opportunity. Recently something felt wrong to me, and I lacked the peace I look for when making decisions. Although I spent a lot of energy discussing the ends and outs of my choice, the bottom line was it didn’t feel right, and so I adjusted my course of action. Most people have sensed a red flag cautioning them to halt at one time, or another. Isn’t it nice to know that your intuition is working to help you out? Think how handy it can be in making business decisions. Yet not everyone relies on their gut feeling for decision making. I wonder how our decisions might be affected more positively if in fact we trusted our intuition.
