  • STARs are Accountable for Their Attitude
    In September's newsletter, we talked about the attributes of a STAR. We define a STAR as someone who shines brilliantly in their field of endeavour. They are people who perform a skill or exhibit a characteristic that we can look at and appreciate that it is being done at a high level.

    We use the "A" in STAR to represent Accountable for Their Attitude which means that STARs:
    -don't play the victim
    -know that attitude affects energy
    -enjoy life
    -show gratitude
    -know that attitude is contagious.

    Being accountable for our attitude requires that we take responsibility for ourselves and our lives. It requires that we stand up and take ownership for each of the challenges and problems in our lives. When we don't do this, when we play the victim in a situation or in our lives, we diminish ourselves unnecessarily.

    Is someone picking on you? Is there a difficulty or challenge you are experiencing that causes you to bemoan your lot in life? If and when you stand up and take responsibility for these challenges you not only raise your standard of behaviour but you raise the bar for others - those who work for you and with you and those in your personal life as well.

    The good news about life is that we each get to decide what we think about any given situation. Is it a tragedy or an opportunity? The choice for one or the other is up to you. You can use your attitude and thinking to change the situations you are in.

    Use the following questions and reflections to observe your attitude. You may find some places in your life where your attitude could be shifted to support, rather than diminsh, you:

    List some times when you've looked for others to blame.

    How did you create the circumstances (good or bad) that you are in?

    Where in your life can you take accountability that you haven't before?

    List some times when your energy was low and a shift in thinking immediately energized you.

    List three of the most enjoyable moments in your life.

    What made these moments so enjoyable?

    How can you create that joy every day?

    List 10 things you are grateful for.

    Inspirational Quote
    The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
    William James

    Nothing is Impossible: Reflections on a New Life by Christopher Reeve

    If ever there was anyone who deserved to have a less-than-exemplary attitude it is Christopher Reeve; actor, husband, equestrian and quadrapalegic. However Reeve has recognized the importance of his attitude in determining the quality of his life, now that he is bound to his wheel chair.

    Reeve says, So many of our dreams at first seem impossible, then they seem improbable, and then, when we summon the will, they soon become inevitable. If we can conquer outer space, we can conquer inner space too.
