Food for thought today….
Do you know people who never seem to have their feathers ruffled? Do you panic when your day’s plans change, or play it by ear? Wish you were better about “going with the flow”? I found this list of characteristics that describe the “together” person. I know I, for one, can use a few of these ideas in my quest for “calm”,
PEOPLE WHO HAVE IT TOGETHER HAVE…
These people know who they are. They know their abilities and strengths, what they are capable of doing, and how to accomplish it.
They lack fear.
This is most often evidenced by their focus, not on themselves but on those they serve and work with.
A Sense of Urgency
This means a “divine impatience” about everything they do.
A Strong Sense of Personal Mission
There is a vision of what needs to be done and a passion and focus about doing it.
Awareness and Respect for Their Own Uniqueness
They don’t compare themselves to others or worry about what they’re not. Their focus is on what they are.
A Consistency to Their Lives
They are not tossed to and fro with every new idea or opportunity or change of events.
A Sense of Calmness and Serenity
They are often people who can keep their heads when all about them are losing theirs.
