FINDING YOUR MOJO & GETTING IT TO WORK

According to Marshall Goldsmith, who is widely recognized as the world's leading authority in helping successful leaders achieve positive, lasting change, "mojo" is the moment when we do something that's purposeful, powerful, & positive and the rest of the world recognizes it.

Putting it in another perspective, "mojo" is that positive spirit- towards what we are doing - now - that starts from the inside - & radiates to the outside.

Mojo is at its peak when we are experiencing both happiness and meaning in what we are doing and communicating this experience to the world around us.

I reckon "flow" or "in the zone" is probably another way to express it.

Marshall Goldsmith also asserts that our professional & personal "mojo" is often impacted by four key factors, as follows:

1) IDENTITY ~ WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?

2) ACHIEVEMENT ~ WHAT HAVE YOU DONE LATELY?

3) REPUTATION ~ WHO DO OTHER PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE & WHAT HAVE YOU'VE DONE LATELY?

4) ACCEPTANCE ~ WHAT CAN YOU CHANGE & WHAT DO YOU NEED TO JUST LET IT GO?

Something worthwhile to ponder.
