Question-How does an individual build resilience to face the ever changing environment? A Great Question by Preeti Subberwal, Life Skills Trainer, New Delhi

Jennifer Sertl's Answer As you know by now I don’t think of resilience in isolation. I think of resilience in the context of agility = resilience + responsiveness + reflection. However, we can zoom directly to resilience for this post.
Building resilience is an ongoing process and there are many ways to foster and buffer this capacity. I will only share a few that I think will have the most immediate impact.
First, I think we need to start by acknowledging how resilient y…

The 'Global Niche' Story-Creating Unexpected Twist for the Creative Entrepreneur

Image
I have always believed that we are all world class in some area (which I call as deepest passion) and Anastasia calls it our Global Niche.  In any case, the bigger the market we decide to target, the more focused we need to be in terms of target segment (or niche). Fundamentally I liked the idea of discovering our global niche, though I was already in the area of global personal branding for nearly two years. I had been running an interesting interview series on my Blog, “Vasudhaiv Kutumkam” or The World is one family. In the series I interviewed wide range of people who were contributing to globalization in real sense of the term-development of global mindset, cross cultural exposure (and respect for other cultures) and making honest attempts to become Global citizens.

Jennifer Sertl's Answer

I have a good friend named Peter Vander Auwera who wrote a very provocative post: The Programmable Me ~ We AreAll Nodes In the Grid

Two Perspectives on Personal Transformation
Two Perspectives’ is a monthly column with two different perspectives from two different continents, genders and cultures on the same topic viz.
Janet Smith Warfield (based in Florida, USA) and 
Dr Amit Nagpal (based in New Delhi, India).



Janet Smith Warfield's Perspective

What is a vision board?
A vision board is a unique collage of words and pictures that bring you joy, purpose, and meaning. It is your vision of what your life would be like if it were exactly the way you wanted. Here is what my own favorite vision board looks like:

Why do you need a vision board?
To refocus your attention and intention on all the good things you want to bring into your life. Your right attention and "right intention," as the Buddhists say, helps manifest these good things in your life.
How do you make a vision board?
Give yourself a couple of hours. Get yourself a big piece of poster board, a pile of old magazines, a pair of scissors, and some glue. L…
