We can DO more together than we can do alone!This is modeled of nature. Nature works together as a synergistic whole. Everyone owning their position on the team, and contributing their part, is what creates teamplay. “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.” ~old African Proverb
"My value is to put my attention 100% of the time on building synergy with the whole team. This includes paying attention to myself, to others and to the environment and working together to create harmony, balance and function as a whole. To do this, I first need to work in harmony with my whole system: my physical, emotional, mental bodies and my spirit. Then, I need to see the world from everyone elseʼs perspective; include the environment Iʼm in; observe the contracts that are in place; lastly, I do the action that is most needed for the whole team."
2) Embrace Life: Open to Your Experience
Every experience is giving you information. When you welcome the information, you can use it to take you to the next step. Don’t question, analyze, categorize, or judge your experience... receive what is occurring and how you are feeling...it is the fertilizer and will give you the fuel to do what is needed next.
"My value is to include, accept and embrace every feeling, sensation, thought, experience that I have and any one else has. I won't try to change, fix, judge, analyze or compartmentalize it, but rather, let it be here and be experienced fully. I am grateful I can experience this piece of my life."
3) Be Responsible: Rise to the Occasion
Meet every experience with your commitment to move in the direction of your goal. Stay dedicated and determined, with belief and encouragement in yourself and everyone else in your life. Tell yourself the truth about what you and everyone else currently can and can’t do.
"My value is to be responsible for all my words, thoughts, feelings, actions and own up to whatever I do. My value is taking action without excusing explaining or defending myself."
4) Be Resilient: Bounce Back When You Fall
Jump in and participate! Give yourself space to make mistakes and tumble. Don't judge yourself, or anyone else, just keep MOVING. Get back up, make the course corrections, and keep moving steadily in the direction of your goals.
"My value is to live my life fully, just jump in and participate, and not to worry about being perfect. When I fall, I bounce back; when I make mistakes, I correct them as soon as I find out. I face my challenges once I hit them, clean up messes once I make them, and just simply get up and keep going on a consistent basis no matter what. I donʼt let anything stop me from going in the direction that is the best for me to go."
5) Explore: Your Life is an Adventure!
Expose yourself to new situations, new environments and people- ways of being, doing, seeing, and thinking. Expand yourself by not knowing, and fully give yourself room to discover. Open to input, to new sensations and feelings, and surprise yourself!
"My value is letting myself explore, discover, create, imagine, enter unknown territory on a regular, consistent basis. I expand my way of seeing things and look at life from all different angles and perceptions. I let every moment be new, here to be discovered."
