Do You Tend to Act Like a Sheep or a Tiger?

"Here are some keys that will free you from the cage of a dull, passive, and complying existence so that the tiger within you can begin to assert itself."

You have only one life to live on this Earth. As you live your life be kind to yourself so that you can be kind to others.

Your success, security and freedom is not found in being part of the herd. Your success, security and freedom is found in your personal strength, the choices you make, the actions you take, and the things you accomplish for the good of yourself and others.

Here are some steps to improve your creative self-management:

1. Don't ask for permission, just do what needs to be done. By taking action on choices that are right and good you will notice that you affect other people’s lives in a positive way.

2. Don't report to others, check things out with yourself instead. You lose your most precious power of choice when you completely rely on others, so be sure to exercise your power of choice and take action to celebrate your success, security, and freedom.

3. Don't be afraid to say "yes" or "no." Answer and act on what you think and feel. Take time to understand the motivations of yourself and others before making your choices and taking action.

4. Do your own research and stop relying on others to make decisions for you. Self-belief is increased every time we ask ourselves, rather than others, what we should do.

Creative self-management - right up there in importance with money management and time management!
