Living a Win-Win Life

This is my outline and flow of thoughts for a 7 Habits group meeting discussing the 4th Habit:  Thinking Win-Win.

We know what win-win is…do we know the secret to living a win-win life?  With self, with family, and with others.  Living Win-Win is Thinking Win-Win on the macro-level, wherein Thinking Win-Win is our spiritual orientation and therefore how we live our lives.  Could we consider Thinking Win-Win the secret ingredient of alchemy 101 – transforming our fears of uncertainty into a fear-less life?  It is those moments of lose-lose and win-lose that we shut ourselves off to opportunity, creativity, and growth.  Only in Win-Win do we find synergy, momentum, and leverage.

Tame the Tiger by Emily

You have heard about the Tiger Mom, and probably gasped with judgment and self-righteousness.  That was my initial reflex.  With further contemplation, I began to formulate an idea that maybe we all have a little tiger in us.  The Tiger Mom may be a bigger tiger than most, or maybe she is just more honest and forthcoming.  Conscious parenting is a tool for taming our tiger.  Offering unconditional love and acceptance, and honoring the pure potential in our children is conscious parenting.      Read the rest of this entry »
