I am so thankful for community–including those at BlogHer. I woke up this morning and found this inspiring post and video emphasizing a word that I’ve been concentrating on: FOCUS. The video starts with this beautiful quote. I encourage you to take a moment and reflect upon it:

“Your real work is to decide what you want and then focus upon it, for it is through focusing upon what you want–that you will get it. That is the process of creating.”

The video closes with another thought-provoking quote by Ghandi:

“Keep your thoughts as positive because your thoughts become your words.

Keep your words positive because your words become your behaviors.

Keep your behaviors positive because your behaviors become your habits.

Keep your habits responsible because your habits become your values.

Keep your values positive because values become your destiny.”

You can apply these words to yourself, to your family, your work, and you can also apply them to your organization. Think: When was the last time you (or your organization) felt inspired?
