Design Your Destiny with Optimism, Leadership & Empowerment
I have had this song in my head for weeks! I’ve been walking around the house singing “How Am I Going To Be An Optimist About This?” from the song ‘Pompeii’ by Bastille? This has almost become my mantra, and I’ve even got my daughter singing it along with me. You can hear the song here: http://youtu.be/F90Cw4l-8NY
And then, I had this kind of crazy thing happen while I was driving home from an event on the weekend. It was kind of an inconvenience, lead to some expenses I hadn’t planned for, and really threw a wrench in my plans for the evening. Sounds like kind of a sucky thing to happen, right?
BUT, instead of being down and disappointed that things weren’t turning out the way I had planned, I started imagining the possibilities and opportunities that this situation created. I asked myself, ‘how can I be an optimist about this’? And, I actually got kind of excited.
So, what does being an Optimist have to do with Leadership & Empowerment?
Watch the video below where I fully explain the situation and share how I became an optimist about it, as well as how this situation highlights the parallel roles of leadership and empowerment.
