Help people think better - Don't tell them what to do.
~ David Rock
I recently read a book that exploded my thinking cap.
It's a must share.
Well that is what happened to me with the book Quiet Leader by David Rock.
Let me start by saying... I hate being told what to do.
I actually get into a pissy pant party if I get told what to do.
Just ask my parents, it started at a young age.
The tag on this book... Help people think better - Don't tell them what to do, made me jump for joy!
Unless a runaway bus is coming down the road directly toward me and I am on the crosswalk, then hell yes tell me to MOVE!
But there is a larger picture.
I notice how everyone is googlfied! (My new word)
What is googlfied?
My definition: a problem, idea or question comes to someones mind, and someone will google it to find the answer instead of staying within their creative thinking to come up with something new or find they had the answers all along.
Our mindset is our most important asset, especially when we figure out how to create a healthy mindset. The question is, how do we create a healthy mindset.
Are you the kind of person who reacts first, and says..."Ohhhh crap... I should not have done that, I should not have said that".
I was a 'screen door open' kind of girl...(sometimes still am). Things that came out of my mouth at times, was not always my proudest moment.
I didn't think twice about saying what was on my mind, and in moments, at others expense. Definitely not who I wanted to be. But, I didn't know how to change. I didn't know how to stop the reactions to my thoughts or feeling that were boiling inside of me.
I just knew there was something more. I could feel it, no matter what I did, I knew I had to figure out my emotions.
I fell upon some amazing teachers in my time of need. Oprah being one of them. Just little tidbits of info that I would try out here and there. My favorite was turning everything into...
