My last Thought for the Week was “Now vs Then” and how, while we may feel disappointed with our life right this moment and compare it with happier times way back, we then realise how much closer we are right now to all we ever wanted than we were back then!
This week, I saw a great LinkedIn Post from @Kelly Mizell (Senior GM at JLL) talking about “Calm is a Superpower” – did you see it? I thought how timely is that because I mentioned this thought in my blog; “The Cradle of Power” a couple of weeks back!
Great minds think alike … and in synchronicity!
Kelly says ….
“It’s easy to get upset. It’s easy to get angry and strike out. It’s easy to get offended and take things personally, even when they weren’t intended to be so. What isn’t easy is choosing to be calm in a fearful society. Being calm does not mean you’re weak. On the contrary; being calm is an incredible strength”.
“One of the best lessons you can learn in life is to master how to remain calm. Calm is a super power.”
~ Bruce Lee ~
And she showed this powerful image of a white tiger.
I agree with Kelly. And when it comes to the way we connect and communicate with others, then the first step has to be to ideally only approach any situation when we feel calm.
Yes, we are only human! If we find ourselves getting riled up over something, where can we go to recalibrate and find that inner calm? Our “Treehouse”? (I wrote about this recently too).
But how about if we don’t have time to go to our “Treehouse” to find some calm and inner peace and we have to respond right there and then?
Well as Bruce Lee suggests, we have to learn to master this inner calm and this is the first step we cover on “The Communication Code” Group Coaching Programme; We cannot master great communication until we master our inner self!
