How will you SURPRISE yourself this SPRING?

Aside

thIWYG6JT4SpingSurprise2015fromBING031915

Earlier this morning, I posted a Blog, that was published by LinkedIn Plus at https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/whats-your-spring-surprise-jo-ann-m-radja.  The text now follows below:

“Life is full of surprises – you just have to look for them. It’s no surprise to many of us that when we work towards a goal and we reach it, we still have much work to do. We can’t bask in a victory for too long because that victory now is in the past and is placed into our experience. The question that faces us is, “What are you going to do now?”

No matter what the victory may be, the surprise lies in how we handle ourselves and learn from the experience. We keep taking steps that we hope will turn into a benefit, for ourselves and the people we work with.   Of course, we become disappointed, yet more resilient in our choice to move ahead.

What are you going to do now with the victories that you had this past Winter Season? Have you patted yourself on the back because you found the resilience to “keep going at it,” when your tired body, said “enough already.” Of course you did – quietly to yourself.   How will you carry forward all your resilience and apply it to your Spring Season at your Career this year?

I hope you surprise yourself, as you Choose Who You Want to be Known As in your career! Have a great Spring Season.

So, I

Persevered.

Resilience paid off.

It’s the first day of Spring and

Not too late to

Give back to those who were kind to me.

Doubts tried to creep into my mind for a while

this past Winter.

And were swept away.

Yearnings will come true as you focus on

what’s important to you.  Copyright Jo Ann M. Radja

Winter Poems for Reflection

?????????????????????????????????????????Two poems were published earlier today by me entitled, “Winter Reflections of Two Poems” by @Coach_Jo_Ann on @LinkedIn https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/winter-reflections-two-poems-jo-ann-m-radja.   The anagram poems are as follows:

Entitled was

The word

He said.

Incivility

Came about as he demanded

Something from her she didn’t have.ã Jo Ann M. Radja

Entering the Speed Mentoring Room, you felt

The excitement of people.

How engaged the Mentees were as each one

Invited the Mentor to ask

Confidential questions for their benefit.

Sharing food for thought nuggets brought

Smiles to the Mentees.ã Jo Ann M. Radja

Have a great career week.

Chance Encounters…

Early Friday evening she heard
That’s her – and she was called a b_ t_h.
He continued in bad form a few  minutes later.
It’s always surprising how often you need to
Control your reactions
So the situation is diffused and not reactive.©
 
 
Entering the store, she immediately felt uneasy,
     although she was
 Told the preceding evening to come to the store.
Having reached the counter, she was quizzed
     as to why she was in the store. 
It became clear her words were not believed.  She 
Carefully reached for her phone and 
Showed the call details.  Workplace public
     treatment of customers can discount good
     behavior of other employees.© 
As you CHOOSE WHO YOU WANT to be BE KNOWN AS this consider how you handle your close encounters.
Enjoy your week!
