The article below from Huffington Post lists some courtesies and thoughtful behaviors that seem to be less common these days. +Lee Brower has developed a concept called the "4 Levels of Gratitude" of which "Social" Gratitude (i.e., common courtesies such as saying "please" and "thank you", as well as some of the behaviors on the Huffington Post list) is an important foundation. I recently told a group that I believe that Social Gratitude is the foundation of a civil society and a better world because, when genuinely expressed, it represents an outward demonstration of respect for another person.

Our training, education, and coaching programs all "Begin in Gratitude".

Dynamic Balance in a Busy Life

This year I’m embarking on a career shift. While I’ll continue writing, I’m transitioning away from the food and culture writing I’ve focused on for the last few years and shifting toward personal development writing and coaching. This change has not been an easy one, and it’s required ongoing adjustments and shifts in my habits as well as my mindsets. This is where practicing dynamic balance comes into play.

Addie-K-Martin-May-Blog-EWWhen I view my evolution via the dynamic balance lens I see how it takes all four of the asset types being in alignment to make this possible. However, I cannot give equal priority to each at any given time. To hold all in equal esteem, at all times, would be detrimental. To attempt to hold them all in a static balance state would result in none of the cups ever being as full as they could be. What’s more effective is for me to practice the concept of dynamic balance with my asset areas.

Instead of trying to hold on to everything in a static state, Read more »

It's Not What You Say

In his audio blog post below, Darren Hardy tells us that who we are, our way of being, is the greatest influence we have in the world. This is an emerging theme for Empowered Wealth, especially, with our focus on developing positive habits through tools like The Empowered Wealth Journal.

The power of lasting influence and persuasion has mostly to do with this–
Listen to this excerpt below:

I witnessed an angry customer at the Verizon store yesterday. He was complaining about his new cellphone, speaking harshly to the store personnel, and generally acting pompously and rudely. Afterwards, I mentioned to the salesperson who was helping me that this man was unhappy and miserable in his life, even though he probably drives a nice car and lives in a nice house (I was in a neighborhood where it seems that most people have multiple fancy cars and a big, fancy house). What the salesperson said after that struck me.

He said that incidents like the one I had just witnessed occur many times daily and that Verizon has a difficult time getting people to work at this particular store because there are so many pompous, rude, entitled people in this particular community. This is a town that 50 years ago was an agricultural crossroads. It has been transformed into a major, upscale shopping and business center. The demographics of the area now tilt heavily towards newly wealthy "mass affluent", white collar professionals.

To me, the level of unproductive stress and lack of gratitude expressed in the behavior of the man in the Verizon store is sad. It does, however, suggest to me that there's strong purpose in the work that we're doing at Empowered Wealth.
