#GenWChat Recap: Tips for Creating Positive Change

change-greensign-1024x680We had a great time during our first #GenWChat last night where the conversation focused on how to create a positive change in your life, your community and even in your world.  Four big takeaways?

  1. Change Your Attitude:  “You can only do what you believe you can do.”
  2. Think BIG:  “To create change women must lead. They have to seek promotions, go after the BIG chances & say yes!”
  3. Get Focused:  “By focusing on your vision for your life you change the world.”
  4. Get Uncomfortable:  “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

 

 

 

Some other great “sound bites” from last night’s Twitter discussion:

On Changing Your Attitude:

  • “Everyday practice gratitude.  Be grateful for all you have, experienced & the people you know.  It starts there.”
  • “Attitude is everything. When we focus on where we are going we can be happy.”
  • “We can’t change others…. just our reaction to them”

On Thinking BIG:

  • “We have the ‘it’ to make executive decisions in the workplace. As Beyonce lets us know:  “WE RUN THE WORLD””
  • “Passion is the propeller of our ship.”
  • “By changing our attitudes to think BIG! If we don’t limit ourselves we are able to CHANGE for the better”

On Getting Focused:

  • “In order for a to-do list to really be productive, you must start each task with an action word.”
  • “Start with figuring out what is most important to you and get focused.”
  • “Break it down into small chunks! How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!”

On Being Uncomfortable:

  • “Be vulnerable and take more risks.”
  • “You can’t have success without discomfort. Desire pushes you through the discomfort.”
  • “Love this quote: “To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.””
