Sometimes the best way to open the door to a healthier and happier life and workplace is to lead with enthusiasm by asking people to do something unexpected for you, which ends up helping everyone feel more encouraging energy for whatever challenging situation you’re in.
In this video clip I am speaking to an audience of 175 healthcare professionals, sharing a story about the way my doctor responded to me when I was being taken into surgery many years ago. I still remember his unexpected response – actually shocking for his reserved personality according to his team — simply because he chose to remember and act on a request that I’d made weeks before to keep things positive in the operating room after he recommended surgery for early-stage cancer.
If you or the people around you are not feeling excited about your life circumstances, do something positive that takes you out of your comfort zone because it allows people around you to think, “Holy Cow, maybe I could look at the world a little differently too.”
If we’re feeling the potential action might not be professional or not who we are, we put on Beginner’s Mind and say “If I didn’t know this person was like this, what might I ask? If I didn’t know I was like this, what might I do differently? How can I be different in the world so that I could feel more alive in my body? What does that look like? How does it feel?
There are incredible feelings of freedom and joy available when you risk releasing and expressing to others the genuine enthusiasm that lives inside you and is waiting to be let out.
If you or someone you know are looking for a speaker for your next event or coaching for yourself or team members in the areas of stress resilience, better communication, or strengthening relationships, call or email for more information. http://marymarcdante.com
