More than a decade ago I was sitting in one of our numerous corporate meetings rehashing cutbacks, shrinking reimbursement and quality challenges and my mind started to wander. “Why does every meeting have to be this way?” heart and soul seem to be shouting. Suddenly, I heard a voice whisper – build CASTLES – “Create Attitudes and Strategies Tapping Limitless Energy for Success.”
Grabbing a napkin on the table in front of me – I scribbled these words down and passed it over to a colleague and dear friend. She smiled indulgently and asked “So?” I answered without hesitation, “This is the focus on my company.”
Leaving the meeting, I gathered up reports, notes and my napkin. Back in the office, I filled and tossed papers, somehow the napkin made it into my top drawer. Moving up in the organization, I now was much more focused on working with building attitudes for success. Sometimes it happened, sometimes it didn’t. A great organization just not the place for me.
Several years and countless meetings later, I left that organization and opened my own business. My vision and focus were on creating those attitudes and strategies tapping limitless energy for success. I just wanted to build CASTLES.
Fortunately, I have been blessed with a family and friends that supported positive thinking. The Power of Positive Thinking by Norman Vincent Peale has been one of the mainstays of my library. My company’s name – Positive Power Strategies, Inc. is a constant affirmation of using a positive mental attitude.
The secret for me is in the belief that every person, every business, every community is an opportunity to build CASTLES. With each client and company that I am engaged, I have the opportunity to discover wonderful creativity and opportunities that can be tapped leading to limitless energy and success. Together we discover tools and techniques that translate into action and extraordinary results. I have the honor and privilege to share obstacles and opportunities, dreams and goals with so many people. People whom given the time, tools and assistance with clarifying their vision and discovering their talents have the capacity to build their own amazing CASTLES.
My secret is an attitude that I am building it and they will come.
Where is your field of dreams? What would you like to build so that they will come?
