“A New Use for the Spare Room”

https://www.curbed.com/2019/1/23/18192963/nesterly-home-share-program-elderly-university-students

Other potential renters include writers, entrepreneurs, and people saving money for their own home, like me!

Though I am not renting a room from a senior, but from another writer, who also prefers a quiet home yet needs help too, has provided me with the quiet environment I needed to heal, restore, focus, study, research, write, and establish a social business venture for the global initiative to transform respect from a discretionary value to a global principle.

It’s all about being respectful, flexible, and adaptable, plus finding the right fit, which sometimes just shows up as mine did.

Happy and safe rooming!

“Getting to Work” … What Phrase Best Describes You?

From “THREE Getting to Work from Paul D. Tieger, Barbara Barron, and Kelly Tieger’s DO WHAT YOU ARE    Discover the Perfect Career for You Through the Secrets of Personality Type”

 #8 ENFJ “The Public Relations Specialists”

#9 INFJ “Catalysts for Positive Change”

#10 ENFP “Anything is Possible”

#11 INFP “Still Waters Run Deep”

#12 ENTJ “Everything is Fine – I’m in Charge”

#13 INTJ “Competence + Independence = Perfection”

#14 ENTP “Life’s Entrepreneurs”

#15 INTP “Ingenious Problem Solvers”

#16 ESTJ “Taking Care of Business”

#17 ISTJ “Take Your Time and Do It Right”

#18 ESFJ “What Can I Do For You?”

#19 ISFJ “On My Honor, to Do My Duty …”

#20 ESTP “Let’s Get Busy!”

#21 ISTP “Doing the Best I Can With What I Got”

#22 ESFP “Don’t Worry-Be Happy!”

#23 ISFP “It’s the Thought That Counts

As the authors point out in their book, one type best defines us, though we each fit differently from each group on the scale. We also are influenced by other personality type characteristics linked closest to us.

For instance, when I initially did an official MBTI test when working in a corporate head office, the results revealed  I was an INFJ, which was not a great fit for an organization doing what it was doing and the roles I took on. The reason I was not a great fit was because of my ignorance of my best strengths, interests, and of course, what was challenging for me in the environment and roles I naively placed myself in.

Recently I decided to revisit, but also delve deep into understanding the MBTI with the fifth edition,  Do What You Are   Discover the Perfect Career for You Through the Secrets of Personality Type. As the authors also point out, keep in mind that as we gain more experience and mature, we often find our personality types can become more balanced and/or blended.

For example, though the driving force for my work is my passion for helping people, exemplified by an INFJ, “Catalysts for Positive Change”,  I draw on my INTJ , “Competence + Independence = Perfection”,   to support my INFJ passion.

Yet also, characteristics of two the other comparative types I identify with,the INFP, “Still Waters Run Deep”,  and the INTP,  “Ingenious Problem Solvers”, also contribute significantly to my unique personality blend, the perfect mix for the work I am now finally doing as a social entrepreneur fuelled by my natural talents, skills, and experience as a philosopher, innovator, producer, publisher, writer, artist, speaker, and founder of the social business venture, Connecting The Dots With The Respect Principle, driving the global initiative transforming respect from a discretionary value to a global initiative.

May not sound like your cup of tea, but I love all the elements of my work now … the challenges, the innovation, the creativity, and of course, all for the greater good of everyone!

Perhaps all you need to enhance your life, professionally and personally, is to learn a little more about yourself and those in your work and social circles. I highly recommend this well-respected concept, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), used for screening potential employees and for guiding students on career paths. Add the authors’ extensive expertise after coaching people, who use the MBTI for such purposes, and you have a wealth of empowering insights, knowledge, and tools to enrich your life on all levels.

Best wishes!

Do you Know About “TALL POPPY SYNDROME?” Are You a Tall Poppy or …?

Discovered, the “Tall Poppy Syndrome” is the major reason my social business venture with its original intellectual capital and global initiative is no longer searching for support within Canadian borders, but is going international.

On another note, I also understand, for those who don’t feel good about themselves and their life, putting others down may briefly feel good, but it is a short fix that will have to be repeated over and over again … unless a person redirects one’s time and energy to rise up and take one’s place with the other tall poppies 😉

Thankfully we all are different and have our unique lives to lead, so let us not cut someone down or criticize. It isn’t necessary, helpful, or productive. The best thing we can do instead is to be brave, bold, and strong and become the best version of ourselves … because that is how we live our best life, which enables us to also help make the lives of others better too.

“Women & Money … Be Strong Be Smart Be Secure”

INTRODUCTION

When this book was first published in 2007, I was convinced that women were finally ready to focus on being powerful with their money. Indeed, many women heard the call. The book connected with a few million readers. It reached the top of the New York Times bestseller list, and tens of thousands of women took their lessons of the book to heart and forged healthy and strong relationships with their money.

            But, in the years since, I’ve come to realize that many more women–even some who bought the book–continued to ignore their issues with money. Or they struggled to make confident decisions that would help them achieve lasting security.

            I was very confused by this. What was preventing women from being as powerful with money as they were in other areas of their life?

            I have long said that self-worth determines one’s net worth. When you are silent, or silenced, it’s very had to get in touch with your self-worth. It is only when you speak your truth that you can be truly powerful. Starting in the fall of 2017, women began to speak their truth, and it suddenly started to make sense to me…

Read the rest in Suze Orman’s book, WOMEN & MONEY Be STRONG Be SMART Be SECURE published by Random House, 2007, 2010, 2018

Also check out best-selling author Suze Orman’s other books, You’ve Earned It, Don’t Lose It, the 9 Steps to Financial Freedom, The Courage to be Rich, The Road to Wealth, The Laws of Money, the Lessons of Life, The Money book for the Young, Fabulous, and Broke, Suze Orman’s Action Plan, The Money Class, The Adventures of Billy & Penny

“This fourth wave of globalization needs to be … Shared wisdom regarding the World Economic Forum

Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Chief Executive of the World Economic Forum, explained:

“This fourth wave of globalization needs to be human-centred, inclusive and sustainable. We are entering a period of profound global instability brought on by the technological disruption of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the realignment of geo-economics and geopolitical forces.
