Personal Power Tip of the Day 1-29-2013

The ten count.

Simple. Easy. Effective.

Yet so often forgotten as a good way to keep ourselves out of trouble!

A short, sweet post to remind us all to STOP. THINK. THEN speak or react. So many times we jump to the conclusion our mind has made up when if we had only waited, stopped and thought, we would have found a different event happening.

When someone puts you on the spot or purposefully tries to get you angry…give yourself time to respond unexpectedly and with grace by simply counting to ten…or twenty if needed.
If on the spot, tell then you need time to gather your thoughts or process the new info.
It had saved me many times and when I do not give myself the moment to think, I usually get it wrong.
