Empower your relationships with compassion

Within the word compassion is the word compass. There is also the word passion. When I think of the word compass, I think of a device with a magnetic needle that helps me determine my sense of direction. When I explored the meaning of the word in the dictionary, I also found that compass means to comprehend, to travel entirely around, or to get into one's possession or power. This discovery was like a revelation for me because when I read those words "direction" and tapping into "one's power," … [Read more...]

10 Emotional Management Strategies while in College

Does college have you suffering from burnout, exhaustion or overwhelm? Trying to find the right balance between friends, study, family and more? If so, you may be a victim of emotional overload. Emotional overload is that place we all come to when we say things like “I can’t take it anymore,” “This is too much for me to handle,” “He/she just doesn’t understand,” or “What’s the use? It won’t happen or work anyway!” Most of us run around doing, doing, doing and then one day realize that we have … [Read more...]

Be clear about who you are and honest about what you want

Have you ever heard the phrase “honesty is the best policy?” Where did that phrase come from? I mean, there are so many situations that clearly reveal that honesty will either hurt or destroy the relationship! For instance, you were out with friends at a campus event and met this really nice guy who made you feel like no other person ever has. In fact, he made you feel so much better about yourself than your current partner (who you’ve mutually agreed to be in a committed relationship with). So, … [Read more...]

Are you ready for leadership development in college?

According to The Leadership Challenge by James Kouzes and Barry Posner, "leadership is a relationship" and "leadership development is self development." It is no doubt that this philosophy has been embraced by the women’s leadership conference vision team at Clemson University. It was a delight to witness the manifestation of this vision when I travelled to Clemson, SC to speak at the 2011 annual Women’s Leadership Conference. Students were engaging in discussions about conflict management, … [Read more...]

Increase your ability to concentrate

To concentrate is to place your full attention on one object. This means that you are making a choice to notice or give consideration to only one thing. It requires one to be still and focus. The one thing may be a person, place, idea, class work assignment, etc. For most people, concentration is hard because the mind, like the body, likes to move and is uncomfortable with stillness. Typically, most of us choose to live in a way that is complex. For example, as a college student, I often … [Read more...]

College overload and exhaustion? De-stress with Quick Coherence

That time has come again for end of semester final exams and the competition to earn high grades is fierce. After all, there are only so many top grades that professors can distribute when working with the ‘curve!’ The hope is that everyone does well so that the curve is set higher. But what if most people, including yourself, don’t perform as well as you wanted to? At that point, what happens for you? Do you feel like a failure; do you say “I gave it my best shot,” do you walk away feeling glad … [Read more...]

Recently, I had the pleasure of speaking to students at the University of North Georgia – Oconee.

Don’t make self-sabotage a habit

Do you often get last minute requests from friends or family members just after the moment you decided to carve out quality time for yourself? Have you noticed a habit of giving your time and energy to projects or people and at the end of the day you feel exhausted or dissatisfied with the outcome? Do you frequently think “when is it my turn to get what I want?” If you answered yes to any of these questions, there is a good chance that you are engaging in self-sabotage. When something is … [Read more...]
