30 Days of Empowerment
Last Saturday, I had a reminder that change happens, that one always should have a plan A, B, C, etc on hand... Why? Murphy's Law happens!... And more often than not.
In this case, I had prepared a wonderful, quite detailed, very uplifting and informative presentation to be presented to a quite special group of persons... I had plans of music, a great interactive and introductory session.... Ahhh, but due to technical unexpected circumstances, the complete plan went to China.... It was beyond my control, no matter how wonderful, my presentation, as planned, could not go, since there was no way of showing it and it was too late to go to my center and retrieve a projector and screen.
Now, what would you do? As always, I say perception and contextual value of things and issues come into play... Of course, I had put so much effort in it that, I did not think of anything going wrong! Ha, I had to present to present to almost, if not over 100 extraordinary persons with no props, intro, or anything... And had about half an hour to re-group.
Did I panic, during an instant...
Immediately, I changed into creativity mode. I could have not done it, if I let panic take over and ruin the expentancy of the group... Or become so nervous that it would have not even let me remember what, I so carefully had planned... Well, I got a pen wrote down some leads, reminded myself that I knew the topic, to focus, find an alternative creative way of presenting, to do my best with what I had and to speak from my heart... Yes, speak from my heart to theirs... Aha, I was able to find some soft music, put my heart into it and let the show begin... I was sooo happy, that even though, I did not follow my notes and was presenting way less than what I had prepared, my message was heard loud and clear, and most importantly, it had feeling, heart, and it was understood with impact. I was so honored to have been there.
... always have a second or third plan of action, with technology assume things can and will go wrong
...when you do something, whatever it may be... Know it well, and have an alternate way of saying it
...work with your heart, it never fails and shows
...do not panic, no matter the circumstance, there is always a way, if we allow our selves to remain calm and in control, and know that we have the power to change the context in which we can react, or see a situation
... Enjoy the ride, the journey, the actual issue, and raise your perception to be able to learn a lesson as I did and be proud of yourself for succeeding over it!
