What Baggage Are You Carrying?
Pretty soon you and your loved ones will be heading away from work for a few weeks rest and relaxation. This is your time to take a breath; pack your bags and then get away from the stresses of the 9 to 5.
Here’s a question to work on as you go through your pre-departure check-list. Aside from the sunscreen, sandals and spending money, what will your mental baggage weigh?
What Does Your Mental Baggage Do To You?
Although you are preparing to get away from it all, do the negatives which you will carry with you actually feel like a burden, which will affect your leadership and management goals when you get home? Those burdens or limiting beliefs might include:
- Your inability to fix your problematic relationship with a key colleague
- Your belief that your career and your values are out of step
- Your self-criticism which means you aren’t good enough to try something new
Might you have more success and be unburdened if your skills, values and actions were in alignment?
