Two very important words in our header this month of October 2022 – WISDOM & STRENGTH.  What do these two words conjure up in your mind?  Can a person have one or the other, or are the two needed to sustain one another?  Interesting question.

Inside each of us is something called a “Bank of Belief.”  You will remember the Henry Ford quote:  “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t – you are correct”, and we get what we believe.  So true and how often do we go down the road of negative self-belief.  Your mindset is just like your bank account.  You are either making deposits of wisdom, and strength, or you are in negative territory.  Only the fines which accompany your “Bank of Belief” are more severe than the overdraft charges your bank makes.

We each must actively deposit in the following areas:

  1. Deposit in our ability to “Communicate”
  2. Deposit in our knowledge of “Leadership”
  3. Deposit into others by “Equipping” them
  4. Deposit in or thinking with the right “Attitude”
  5. Deposit into each of our “Relationships”

What if I asked you this question:  “What is your life’s potential when it comes to your personal growth?”  I know no one has ever asked this question of you.  No one ever asked me, but it was eluded to recently in a conference I attended.  Let’s look at your age for a moment.  How many years do you have left [by US standards] to make significant contributions in your current field?  What about your spiritual field?  What about your relationship field?  What about your serving field in your community? How far can you go?

Now those are heavy questions, aren’t they? Have you found this to be true in your journey; “The more you know, the more you realize you don’t know?”  Let me enlighten you here; “There is no finish line” when it comes to self-leadership and self-growth, and self-development.  Until your maker calls you home you and I are to continue to grow and develop. 

We have about 86 days before 2022 is in the books, so what was your “Plan of Growth in 2022?”  Did you have one?  How is that working for you now that we are 279 days into the year?  How strong are you finishing?  Yes, yes, I know, I am stacking questions here, but I beg you to see that you have either been growing for 279 days or you have been existing for 279 days!

Let’s take a fresh look at the next 86 days.  You can start anew with a “Personal Growth Plan”!  That is the good news.  It is never too late to begin!!  I would love to help you accomplish this.  Are you up to partnering with me to create your own “Personal Growth Plan in 2023?”  If we start now, you will have a running head start for 2023 when the calendar turns!

As a part of Maxwell Leadership, we have a new program called C.L.E.A.R. that I would love to partner with you and become your mentor in your own Personal Growth Plan for 2023.  This is a wonderful program with an app for your phone and daily mentoring by five amazing people I personally know.  There is an overlay of personal coaching with me as your coach. 

In 2022 according to “Gallup Polling”, at least 50% of the U.S. workforce became what is being called “QUIET QUITTERS!”  This is a pandemic of a different sort!  This quiet quitting is worse among younger workers. What is causing this pandemic of quiet quitting?  The answer is actually simple. 

Gen Z, Millennials, those young workers under 35, college students, and workers in general have no idea how to:

  • Actively think to solve business challenges
  • Be psychologically engaged
  • Collaborate with others
  • Communicate
  • Develop healthy relationships
  • Equip themselves or others
  • Have a business, forward thinking, positive attitude
  • Have realistic expectations in the workplace
  • Leadership Skills
  • Meet customers’ needs

Please contact me if you are one of those people who is interested in living and learning and growing yourself vs just existing until you check out of life.  Call me at:  908-229-3797 and just leave a message: “I am interested in being a part of C.L.E.A.R. or email me at: janice@janicebastanicoaching.com and in the subject line write:  C.L.E.A.R.  I will respond within 24 hours!

Let’s start off 2023 with a celebration!!!
