What one word best describes you?
Is there actually one word that would encapsulate everything that you’re all about?
Look for your ‘one’ word – can you think of it?
Even under copious amounts of caffiene, I could not think of that ‘one’ word for myself. I don’t actually think that word exists – so maybe I have to create it!
You see, when I challenged you to think of that ‘one’ word, it immediately put limits on your thinking but our thinking needs to be limitless in order to engage and change worlds.
So let’s get a little creative here. I think my newly created ‘one’ word needs to be blended into something so magnificent, you’re never going to forget it.
A bit like the stupendous word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from the famous Disney Movie, Mary Poppins.
There is so much POWER in our words and they can be used for the greatest good or to disempower, so please be very mindful of the words you say to yourself and to others.
I’ve got to say, one of my favourite words is “aspirational” – for some reason, that word seems to “breathe life into me”.
Another word I seem to love is “exponential”. I was first introduced to this word by Broadcaster & Global Keynote Speaker, Rene Carayol at the “The Time is Now” Leadership Conference, held in Glasgow City Centre in 2009.
“Imaginative” another wonderful word that seems to ignite my spirit.
Okay, I need more time to create ‘THEE’ one word but I think you get the moral of the story:
When you add rules, limits and boundaries to your creative thinking, you are boxing up the best of you.
Remember you are a GIFT, so special, that doesn’t need to be boxed up.
Next time you’re in a team meeting trying to come up with an innovative solution or new concept, allow your thinking to flow freely with no barriers in the way.
