Be Remakable

I’m going to ask you to try something out for me. And then come back and tell me what you did and how it went. I want you to go to your next shift with this idea:

Be Remarkable

That’s it.

What would it look like? How would you do it? Those are valid questions. They also might be resistance to the idea of being remarkable.

You may have grown accustomed to the idea of laying low, going with the crowd and being rather unremarkable. Here are some ideas.

1.) When little kids and grown adults are inspired by you, you’re remarkable.

2.) When you walk on to a scene and the energy you bring with you changes the mood for the better, you’re remarkable.

3.) When you listen to people with a desire to simply hear what they are saying, you’re remarkable.

4.) When you recognize that your workplace is the perfect environment to live your highest values, you’re remarkable.

5.) When you strive to raise the bar on what you do and how you do it to a new level, you’re remarkable.

6.) When you enter a scene with nothing but a gracious and generous desire to serve, you’re remarkable.

7.) When you care about the greatness of your team more than you care about the greatness of your reputation, or your ego, you’re remarkable.
