Our brains are fascinating things! They are constantly computing massive amounts of data and speeds we can’t even comprehend. As humans, our minds are constantly applying labels to things, giving us clues as to how we perceive the world around us.
This is such an incredible function and allows us to process and learn and grow! However, it’s easy for our minds to fall into a trap of hiding behind our labels.
Truth be told this is a learned process, giving labels is something that can come from our upbringing, society, media, or our experiences. Yet the impact this has on our psychological view of the world is that it makes us constantly try to read into new experiences or situations and figure out which label to put on them: “good” or “bad.”
I move to show you that by merely making that judgement, we are predetermining our response to all the “bad” things that come our way as things we have no use for. This sets us up on the defense, consistently trying to stop all the “bad” experiences from happening, much like a goalie in a soccer or hockey game. And after awhile, it gets exhausting playing defense all the time.
What I am proposing could be a very radical idea to most. I’m proposing to truly master the consciousness of one’s perspective of how we choose to see ourselves in relation to the world around us. Through this, even the most horrific life experiences can become a great source of knowledge and growth.
It requires changing the lens of world view. Instead of predetermining whether something is good or bad, choose to see each moment and circumstance as a gift to help us better ourselves. Changing this view gives you creative power in choosing how you will take each situation to better yourself for the next moment.
This can be difficult to see when we get disappointed or feel frustrated, or even hurt by the experience we are having.

Our society is yearning for a new breed of leaders, a set of leader that will take us out of the “every man for himself” mindset our society finds itself.
The bottom line can no longer be the sole standard in which we operate. This new generation in the workforce is calling for their work to have meaning, to have impact, to reap intrinsic rewards that go beyond just the number in our bank accounts. We no longer need just leaders; we need a new breed: The Conscious Leader.
John Quincy Adams is quoted as saying “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
