Slamisms – 301 through 400

     I apologize to my Guts Is The Key Readers. I am way behind, on my posts. It was August of last year since I released the third hundred of my “Slamisms.” So, With no further wait, here is the next hundred. I will preface these by commenting and expanding  the first few to give you an overview and flavor, of what’s to come.

  1. Before trying to “Fix” your career, “Fix You.” Amazing how careers get better when we do! #Slamism / It’s amazing how many people want to fix something on the surface, while ignoring the underlying problem. Many times, maybe even most times, our careers suffer because their is something “out of whack” in us.  When we fix our character defects and chase away our personal haunting spectres; it is amazing how many of our professional problems fix themselves.

  2. Center your work around others and not just self satisfaction. It is amazing how the workplace improves when you do this! #slamism / This is one of those things that you can not calculate in a binary equation but it works anyway! When we give to others with a healthy, helpful motive; it is amazing how the work attitudes of those around you will change. It is not calculatable how giving results in blessing. But it is so!

  3. Doing your best at work can make you feel better about everything else!  #slamism / Sometimes we want things to be better but are not willing to put in the work to change them. The work must come first. Another ironic truth is that when we do our best at work; it tends to make us feel better about things outside of work. Do your best on your job and see if you do not experience a general overall improvement, in your life.

  4. When u wear ur best smile & practice a good outlook in spite of “feeling bad”-u do great wonders 2 help turn the page & feel good! #slamism / A put on smile can rapidly becomes the real thing. An amazing event, most times happens when you feel bad, and put a pleasant face on anyway. You will find yourself feeling better. This is an uncanny but solid truth. Try it. Next time you are in a sour mood. Go to the restroom. Wash your face and put on a big smile. And make yourself keep it. The brain will produce chemicals to back up your decision to be optimistic, with rewarding sensations. So most times, it is good to smile, EVEN when you don’t feel like it.

  5. Dwelling on your problems only increases them. Think about the remedy. Live in the solution. Face facts but Aim on the Answers. #slamism / Rehashing the problem seldom solves it! Think instead about how you are going to get better. About how you are going to improve. This improved manner of thought will lead to an improved manner of living. Don’t stay in the doldrums of distress, envision a solution and fix your mind on this possibility becoming your reality.

  6. Smiling is a Neurological Miracle! Put one on & wear it/Not only will you make those around you, like you more/You Will Feel Better! #slamism

This last one so clearly ties with number 4 and number five, that we started with. Clear aim produces clearer results. Having the idea in mind, of what we want to achieve before we start greatly improves the likelihood that we will achieve it. Have your goal in mind before you begin your work. Just like the shot of an arrow from a bow; hitting the bull’s-eye is much more likely, when a very focused steady aim is applied before the effort. I teach my karate students to practice each technique with the intensity, that each technique might be the very one that saves their life. Learning to put our best and what we do is not hap- Hazard. It is very deliberate and sets the foundation for greater success.

    Have an awesome week and use these #slamisms to make it better!!
