M.A.P. for 2019


New Year’s resolutions are upon us. Resolutions are fun activities but most of the time they do not last. What can last is a M.A.P. for any goal and the Uncommon Wisdom crew is here to help. We have developed a toolset that can help you approach goals or objectives whether set as a resolution to ring in 2019 or any time after that. M.A.P. stands for Mindset, Achieve and People. By working daily from your M.A.P. you will be able to accomplish your 2019 goals.

We have a new resources tab on our website where you can check out all of the tools we reference during our episodes.

If you get value from our content, it would mean the world to us if you share your thoughts with just one friend and invite them to connect with us via: Facebook, YouTube or iTunes.

When you know…

When you know…

If you are a husband or wife, you mean more to your spouse when you know why you are here.

If you are a parent, you mean more to your children when you know why you are here.

If you are a teacher, you mean more to your students when you know why you are here.

If you are a business owner, you mean more to your customers and employees when you know why you are here.

If you are an employee, you mean more to your employer and your future success when you know why you are here.

But, if at this very moment, you do not know why you are here, that is okay.  Just know, you bring more value to yourself and others when you do, so get started.

Today is the day

Today is the day

… to take action.

… to execute.

… to wake up early.

… to exercise.

… to work hard.

… to love more.

… to move more.

… to take ownership.

… to embrace change.

… to create change.

… to be grateful.

… to leap.

Today is not the day to say I will do it tomorrow.

Empowerment or Initiative. Which came first?

The answer is empowerment but in a different way than you probably think. Empowerment does not start with a parent, spouse or boss.  Empowerment starts with giving yourself the permission and authority to accomplish something great.  Empowerment comes from trust, in yourself, and then from others.  Once you have given yourself the permission, then you must take action and apply initiative.  And when you apply that initiative, you will find something magical happens. 

Empower yourself to love deeply like you know you need to, then apply the initiative to create the relationship you desire.

Empower yourself to take the leap to do important work, then apply the initiative to see it through to the end.

Empower yourself to create the life you want, then apply the initiative to make it happen.

That’s the magic.  Empowerment + initiative = more empowerment

It’s simple really.   Give it a try.
