Your Success Thought for the Week of November 15, 2006
Ah, the holidays. At no other time of the year do we hold such high expectations of ourselves and those closest to us. And at no other time do we communicate it so miserably. Little do we realize the damage this creates.
The challenge is an old story—too much to do, too little time, too much sugar and fatty foods that make us feel miserable, too little sleep, expectations set too high to be perfect, to find that perfect gift, and wear that perfect dress or tux to the holiday celebration ~ arm-in-arm with that perfect date, providing the funniest jokes.
Before we get too far into the season, let’s take a moment out to strategize new solutions to this age-old problem. I believe that our problems manifest through unrealistic expectations followed by communication mishaps.
Unrealistic Expectations: There is no shortage of books and workshops telling us how to simplify our lives. Throughout the year, many of these techniques apply but then comes the nostalgic holiday season and it all goes out the window. This year, take time to outline what you truly desire, from your heart, in all aspects.
Communication Mishaps: Then, the key is to communicate clearly throughout the season. Not only during your specific celebrations but during the stress that accompanies this time of year.
This is your season. No one can create it but you. Go out there and make this season like no other. Create what you want and keep those expectations in line while you heighten your level of communication.
Enjoy your discoveries and have an enlightened week!
