Have you found your moral compass?
After a year that had many ups and downs, I am challenging you this week to find your moral compass in 2021. Were you faced with any tough decisions? How did you handle adversity? We were all hit with unforeseen circumstances in 2020, but this year can, and will, be different. You just have to step up to the plate. In the #CJJblog this week, I give you eight tips on how you can find your moral compass and have a more positive year. Enjoy.
- Be in charge. Say to yourself “I am responsible” consistently. Accept responsibility for your life and your decisions. Do not blame others or take pity on yourself.
- Who are you? Answering this question will help give you clarity on yourself like you have never felt before. Personal mission statements give you a purpose and allow you to see clearly during tough times.
- Confront the brutal facts. As it says in one of my favorite books of all time (Good to Great, by: Jim Collins), always understand the facts before taking action.
- Protect your mind. Listen to people you trust instead of news outlets and social media. Feed your mind positive material.
- Be a positive role model. Challenge yourself to consistently be a person who is setting an example for those around you. When someone thinks of a person of integrity, do they think of you?
- Choose leaders wisely. When choosing who you follow and listen to, are they someone who has character and competence?
- Share kindness. Always share love and recognition to others when the opportunity comes about. Catch people doing the right thing and recognize them for it.
- Be respectful. No matter your political beliefs, always be respectful to everyone you meet.
