Spring Break: More Renewing Thoughts

Published March 25, 2015 by Mayrbear's Lair

2-Wednesday Spring Break

Success As a Living Reality

On day one of Oprah Winfrey and Deepak Chopra’s (2015) online 21-Day Meditation program, Manifesting True Success, Dr. Chopra asks us to embrace the idea of success in an entirely new way. Instead of viewing success as an outer goal to achieve, he asks us to learn how to experience success as an inner state of being that we can live in right now! In other words, we accept that we are already manifesting successful outcomes because the act of being successful is a creative endeavor.

Chopra further explains that the concept of success is the evolving realization of worthy goals. In order to experience success, he discloses that we must learn how to align our actions and goals with the values and ethics we hold as dear. The key is to identify what is significant and what direction we want our life to grow. By developing our self-awareness, Dr. Chopra contends that we can awaken our consciousness in order to manifest the kind of successful outcomes that are authentic and in alignment with who we really are (Chopra, 2015). That is one way to view success as a living reality!

That’s it for today! Until next time … stay aligned and organized!

Spring Break: A Time for Renewal

 Success Is Wholeness

While the magical folk at Media Magic are off for spring break we decided to post inspirational images this week and share some thoughts and insights to ponder.

In the online 21-Day Meditation Program, Manifesting True Success, Best Selling author and medical physician, Deepak Chopra (2015), suggests that our body, mind, and emotions are key allies in manifesting successful outcomes. He further suggests we consider enlisting our most vital and frequently overlooked ally in achieving success – our Being; the Being which is the silent, unshakable foundation of our life. It gives purpose, strength, balance, and direction to our life, just by virtue of its existence. This is different, he postulates, from the other allies which actively send signals back to us to condition and regulate life. This Being is self-regulating, self-sustaining, and self-aware. When we are connected to our Being, we feel secure, confident, loving, open, and awake (Chopra, 2015).

That’s it for today’s food for thought. Until next time … keep being organized!

Motivation: A Key Component to Success (Conclusion)

Published March 13, 2015 by Mayrbear's Lair

Today’s post wraps up our discussion on Thomas Haizlip’s top ten tips to motivate employee performances.

wages_2391900b

7. Good Wages

Robert Bosch, the founder of the world’s largest automobile parts supplier, is known to have said, “I do not pay good wages because I have a lot of money; I have a lot of money because I pay good wages.” In his article, Employee Motivation, Thomas Haizlip purports that leaders who want motivated, high productive employees must be willing to compensate such people in accordance with their ability and performance. He further postulates that good employees are motivated by more than just great wages, and that the most effective leaders never allow low wages to play the role of the wedge outside competitors can use to steal away an employers best staff members.

8. Good Working Conditions

Haizlip also contends that leaders who are interested in getting the most out of their staff members need to create an culture that fosters successful outcomes. At the minimum, he suggests supervisors provide a safe, clean, and sanitary workplace. In short, to get the most out of staffers, leaders must find a way to help them take pride in their workplace, even if it is only a small cubicle or workstation. Furthermore, he suggests that employers allow people to personalize their own work space with pictures, or other personal items to help them feel more comfortable, like they have a place that belongs solely to them. Companies like Google even provide employees a stipend to help staff workers establish more comfortable work spaces.

9. Being Part of a Team

The most successful leaders realize that being part of a dysfunctional team is an emotionally draining experience. One that results in low morale, low productivity, and high turnover. The great coach, Vince Lombardi, is quoted to have said that individual commitment to a group effort is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, and a civilization work. The truth is that we are all social beings that possess an inherent desire to be part of a successful healthy team. This is a motivating factor that enables people to give and receive support, help, and encouragement. Leaders that want to achieve successful outcomes at their organizations learn how to harness this natural human desire by aligning employee efforts to achieve company goals which are mutually beneficial to both the company and its staff members.

10. Help with Personal Problems

How many of us have been in circumstances where we worked directly with, or heard about, incompetent bosses that communicate messages to their employees encouraging them to essentially leave their problems at the door as an effective strategy to focus on their job? Haizlip suggests that unfortunately, in doing so, employees also tend to leave their motivation and productivity at the door as well. Smart managers on the other hand, acknowledge that their role is not to act as the employee’s counselor or therapist. In truth, their job is to recognize when staff members are experiencing personal problems which in turn is having a negative affect on their job performance. In other words, the most successful leaders need to have open lines of honest, authentic, transparent communication so that their employees will feel encouraged to seek guidance and help. In short, these managers know that the best method to help employees in these circumstances is to direct their workers to their Human Resources Department or their Employee Assistance Programs to help them implement positive changes.

Well, that concludes our discussion on employee motivation for this week. Until next time … keep motivated and stay organized!
