There is Hidden Strength in all of Us!

There is Hidden Strength in all of Us

­

Sometimes the unexpected happens.

We’ve all heard of miraculous stories of survival that seem like they can’t be real. Some of them seem like they are right out of the movies. Take for instance the story of a man who survived for three days underwater in a capsized tugboat. In June 2013, Harrison Okene became trapped when his ship was overturned by a large swell, but he didn’t give up. For those three days he clung to life in a four foot air pocket while battling the elements and avoiding sharks that began roaming the ship. He lived through the ordeal and went on to get married.

“We don’t even know how strong we are until we are forced to bring that hidden strength forward.” – Isabel Allende

We may not all face a situation like the one faced by Harrison Okene or countless others who have endured incredibly difficult circumstances. Yet for each of us, there may come a time when we feel trapped, afraid to move forward or perhaps even unable to. We may need to be rescued or saved, but until we are, we must learn to survive. You may be facing such a time, or you may know someone who is. In those moments we must find our pockets of hidden strength and continue to persevere. We must lift ourselves and others up and continue to survive until we are able to thrive.

According to research, dads often get the short end of the stick when it comes to being recognized on their day. In fact one recent survey found that if Mother’s Day and Father’s Day were celebrated on the same day, 78% of adult children would acknowledge Mom over Dad.

The people who were surveyed gave a variety of reasons for choosing Mom. Perhaps one reason Mom gets more attention is that she had an official holiday proclaimed 58 years earlier than Dad. Before you get too upset with those people who don’t seem to find fathers as important, consider that early attempts to establish a day honoring men were belittled by those very honorees.According to one historian, men “scoffed at the holiday’s sentimental attempts to domesticate manliness with flowers and gift-giving.”

Power Relationships

We loved this post so had to share!

Power relationships are based on great conversations; they’re not based on one person showing the other how much they know.

When meeting with a client, customer or potential prospect it is easy to fall into the “forget the rest, just impress” mentality. This type of attitude is common when meeting with someone you want to do business with. A conversation that is meant to build and strengthen trust, loyalty, brand awareness and a relationship suddenly turns into a “showcase” of how great you are.
