October Powerful Word – DILIGENCE – Week 2

This week, we’re talking about what stands in the way and what helps us to show diligence. The quote from Buddha says it well; “Chaos is inherent in all compounded things. Strive on with diligence.” How can we help those we lead to focus, show diligence, and work hard when there are so many distractions around us? What helps you focus and block out some of these distractions? What can we do when the distractions are not elicited from the outside (noise, prompts to goof off, taunts, technology like Facebook), but rather,from the inside (i.e. fear, negative self talk that makes a person feel that they won’t be able to achieve something even if s/he tries)? This week, your Powerful Thought Assignment is to get honest with ourselves. Do you allow outside or inner distractions to compromise your diligence? What can you consciously do about it?
