Dear Readers and Listeners,
On October 2nd, Shelia Ramsey was our guest on, Voice For Truth. our new radio show on www.VoiceAmerica.com She is author of the book, Personal Leadership along with Barbara Schaetti and Gordon Watanabe.
A little about the book and the work they do is expressed so well in a quote from the backcover of their book:
When people come together from different backgrounds or with different perspectives, an inherently creative possibility exists. One of the most profound things we humans can do today is move away from fear and mistrust of difference and instead open to that creative possibility.
Their book contains Two Principles, MINDFULNESS and CREATIVITY and Six Practices. The Six Practices are as follows:
1. Attending to Judgment
2. Attending to Emotion
3. Attending to Physical Sensation
4. Cultivating Stillness
5. Engaging Ambiguity
6. Aligning with Vision
Shelia led us during this program on creating a Personal Leadership Vision. A very powerful process where you claim how you want to show up in the world, your way of being, so that wherever you are or whatever you are doing, you have a vision of how you want to BE!

Prior to Shelia's visit to our radio show, Voice For Truth, I created my statement after reading about it in her book. I fine-tuned my statement after her presentation on Voice For Truth. I've found it to be a very practical and powerful statement. Below is what I wrote:
My contribution of Presence, intellect and action originates in my core of equanimity and peacefulness. I welcome the Present moment and accept what is. I remember that it's only personal if I choose to take it personally. I breathe deeply to remember who and what I Am. I commit to operating at my highest and best with an orientation of joy, abundance and connection; making choices that call forth my deepest wisdom and potential. I take responsibility for seeing the possibility in each moment and act to bring forth that potential possibility. So, as I live this in each moment, I create a new possibility and reality for myself to make a world of difference and stand for all to be inspired and live consciously and together create a world that works for all.
I'd love to hear from YOU!
What is the way YOU want to be in the world, every day...and all day?
I welcome your reflections!
