Simple, Elegant, and Powerful? Is that What you Want to Be?
We spent an hour at Verizon this morning buying the new iPhone 4S. What an amazing piece of electronics. It integrates your communications into one package creating a powerful, elegant solution which includes internet, voice, apps(tools), social networks, visual interaction kinesthetic(touch) audio, planning, synchronizing, and more. It’s an all in one and that is why so many people like this Apple product. It is an integrated communication tool that helps you manage your social and work life.
The days of electronic fragmentation with devices are gone. You don’t need a phone, iPod touch, and iPod classic, and computer any more. This fragmentation lends itself to compartmentalizing your life. Since this is a website about personal development and achieving greatness, you probably know where I am headed in this post.
The iPhone is about powerful communication. The essence of our lives is about communication as well. Everything we do has to do with some form of communication. Integration versus fragmentation in our personal and work lives can really mess us up. It can become an energy drain and lead to lots of frustrations.
When we experience fragmentation we are unable to integrate our strengths, skills, values, motivations, and learning styles in a healthy environment. When we fail to live in that powerful zone or sweet spot, we often experience frustration and failure. Imagine what your personal and professional life would be like if you were able to identify and master your strengths and become a power, simple, and elegant person? You would be satisfied and would probably create wealth where ever you go and would be in great demand.
What steps could you take to get integrated so you feel life your life is converging on your strengths?
1) Take personality inventory – learn how you are wired for motivation (click here). Go to the Personality Assessments. I recommend PSI for starters.
2) Answer the “What’s My Identity” questionnaire and debrief with someone about what you learned about yourself. Go to Downloads
3) Hire a coach who can help you grow in self-awareness and experience break through in your thinking. If you are a high school student or college student, we have some scholarships available and you can get feedback for free. Click here to contact us.
Don’t delay, invest in your future. Take these actions steps to move closer to a place of greater satisfaction and experience the joy of achievement. You will not regret it.
