We have all been shaped - influenced, pulled, taught, polished, altered, pushed - by three things: People + Experiences + Forces
The People (the Who) we invite into our lives and minds influence the way we think, the way we view the world, the way we pursue our dreams.
The Experiences (the What) in our lives, both those that are chosen and those that are foisted onto us, compel us to look, listen, feel, make connections, reflect, grow - to LEARN.
The Forces (the How) in our lives - Love, Hate, Passion, Fear, Ambition, etc. - are those internal and external drivers that are always there but seldom noticed, and they resist being controlled.
Understanding Who and What and How we are being shaped is an important step in self-knowledge, self-awareness, self-understanding.
Understanding Who and What and How we are shaping others is a critical component in effective leadership.
Purposeful engagements, purposeful actions, and purposeful reactions determine our personal success, and that of the organizations to which we belong.
