Use the 5 P’s in the Coming Year of Prosperity
Wow! Thanks for stopping by to read our 500th post for Insights. We are very excited about hitting this milestone and we’re looking forward to more interaction with our readers. So, first let me invite the real readers to give us comments regarding our subjects, posts and positions. (Spammers and Robots not allowed however.)
The exciting thing is things are happening all around us. In fact, our opportunities are interesting every day and there is a sense of optimism beginning to fill the conservations. IT IS TIME TO GET EXCITED ABOUT LIFE AND BUSINESS!
With that being said, I would like to share the Five P’s for driving Prosperity for you and your organization. I want to keep things as simple as possible in our ever increasing complex world and these five P’s help make it simple again.
So, what are the five P’s you ask? Here they are…
Here it is up to you to pick the right set of principles to follow. These principles are closely related to the core values Judy Bell has written about. These are the guiding lights if you may, that keep you heading in the right direction – no matter how many or what type of distractions are occurring all around you. Allow your principles to lead or guide you down life’s pathway to prosperity and happiness.
Identity what you must do to improve your personal performance. And, if you are a leader of a company – decide what your people should be focusing upon in order to arrive at your vision station within a stated period of time. The ability of an individual to stay true to their priorities is one of the key factors of leadership – personal and business. Think in terms of the outcomes needed in order to be more success as a human and a professional, these are the areas of priority.
To me, this is one of the most important factors in life and business. Every business usually starts due to someone being passionate about an idea or way of doing things differently that others. The best leaders are usually passionate about something – the thing in the back of their mind keeping them focused and committed no matter what is going on around them. Passion is the driver of life and business. Have you checked your level of passion about what you are doing? If passion is missing, what can you do to kick start it? Admittedly, some times you need to change your course in life to follow your passion. The most common block to change is the fear of not making enough money. The truth is – by following your passion you will become the best at what you do and surprise, the money will come.
Another way to think about partners is collaboration and networking. The world has become so complex, people are looking for others they can trust and depend upon – partnering is the pathway to more prosperity than in the past. Networking is the pathway to partnering. When others get a chance to know who you are and what you stand for (principles) you have the opportunity to build relationships. These relationships create more opportunities for you and others – a exponential growth factor using leverage and relationships as the catalyst. For some of us, this is the hardest of the P’s to master, particularly if you have compulsion to do things by ourselves without assistance or advise from others. Yet, this is one of the major changes coming to every facet of our lives – school, social clubs, religious groups, businesses, and individuals must master the skill of partnering.
Now this form of power moves away from the traditional source of positional power. This one is all about your level of personal power. How effective you can be in every situation you encounter. Life is getting more complex and personal power has a stabilizing effect upon your actions and your ability to remain calm during any type of chaotic situation. Developing a strong sense of self-esteem is an important ally for you to make the tough choices coming at you every week. You’re ability to say no becomes important if you want to live by the other P’s in this list. Others will tempt you to change or let go of your dreams, they will attempt to distract you into meaningless pathways or just plain tell you – it won’t happen. Your Personal Power will kick in and keep you on your life course – personal or business.
Take time to review the Five P’s for Prosperity during the coming year. Pick the ones you want to start with and after mastering, go back and pick another one until you feel you have mastered all five. Then you will begin to see a whole new world of opportunities and happenings – simple to accept, hard to explain in some cases. Yet, your personal strength in the beliefs of prosperity can happen for you – will help you make it happen.
By the way, one last tip. Stay away from the naysayers who do not want you to succeed in life. Find other positive and like minded people to spend time with during the day or weeks ahead. The groups of people you choose to be with are your reference group. The more alignment in thought and beliefs, the more life prosperity can be yours – assuming of course everyone in your reference group believes in life prosperity.
Take care and thanks for reading our 500th post. We also believe in sharing and motivating others or the effort to write 500 posts would have gone with the wind. Thanks.
