Are You Mindful?
Friend, author and founder of AM I HUNGRY?® Programs, Dr. Michelle May MD, writes about mindful eating, “You can learn to eat what you love, fearlessly without deprivation or guilt, and learn to love what you eat, mindfully with intention and attention.”
Imagine living in the principle of mindfulness across all segments of one’s life, just as “AM I HUNGARY®” works. Building a brand begins with your own state of mind. Have you established your role in your own success? Look at successful branding as a hunger needing to be fed. There are plenty of models for success. Yet models mean little if you do not establish a hunger and mindful commitment with intention and attention.
It’s Your Brand… Are you hungry for success?
Mindfully feeding your hunger-for-success builds on two global elements:
First – You develop an “I CAN DO THIS” attitude: With mindful planning you feed a vision, mission and establish clear goals. Prepare yourself for the internal/external roadblocks that keep you from achieving goals. You know why you want to achieve your goal and what it takes to get you through the grind to complete the tasks.
Second – You stretch yourself without breaking: Living and working mindfully means that you plan for stress and pressure. Balance does not breakdown in terms of 50/50. It is planned by a give and take approach. You prepare for: a) what you know, b) what you don’t know, and c) Pandora’s Box – a.k.a, things you don’t know you don’t know until the work begins. Once aware of “Pandora’s Box”, you become flexible and adapt more quickly to change. This approach gives space to work through stress and pressure.
