I Remain Mindful – a poem

Leaving  every morning to work for some dimes

Here I stay,

living a life that money can’t buy

Times are hard and believing seems to be a crime

You stay with the sheep,

with the eagles i’ll fly

And if worse comes to worse,

i’ll take comfort in the knowing that I tried

No matter how hard the struggle,

the byproduct is distress

All the money in the world

only serves to buy products

therefore we perpetuate the stress

Dreaming as if I am living to die

Dying from the moment of my first breath

My heart translates the energy from my soul

I feel it in my chest

Happiness and joy,

pain and suffering ,

it’s all a decoy

For in this life

and in death

if only we opened our eyes

to see that we be blessed

Living a life on purpose,

this is my affiliation,

‘tis my crest

I wear my heart on my sleeve

my passion is like a vest

I nurture my nest

My mission is to share all that I am

Remove my masks and undress

Show you my route,

you discover the rest

for the path of happiness

is also one of sorrow

the road of joy is sunny today

but flooded tomorrow

all there is is this moment

and with that I remain mindful.

A personal development companion?
A personal development companion is similar to a “life coach” but is also quite different. A person such as myself does not direct or coach the development of his client, rather he learns about him or her by listening and truly learning about who he or she is. The PDC will then share what he has learned from his own experiences and pass on the wisdom he has gained, allowing the client to forge his own path rather than follow the PDC’s “truth”. This may seem like a small nuance but the results are astounding. Just as we need a mirror to see our own face, the personal development companion serves as a mirror that reflects the deep self of the client and who he or she can be. This PDC-Client relationship is a non hierarchical one where dominance and superiority are non existant, therefore this very natural flowing method of guiding allows the room and freedom for open-mindedness and humility which in turns increases the chances of the client discovering his path of happiness and success.

 If you are interested in my services, whether it in the form of personal development companion, conferences, or retreats, please go to Services page of this website and I will be more than happy to share whatever I can with you.

What is leadership 2.0?
We, as human beings, all have the capability of being leaders. Leadership is an intrinsic quality that resides within everyone and is simply waiting to be expressed and shared. You certainly do not need a title in order to be a leader since leadership power is not attributed by external sources, rather it is fueled by an inner vision and mission of a better self. Furthermore, leadership is when one expresses and shares the best of themselves in service of others therefore positively impacting the world around them. “Give a fish to a man and he will be fed for a day, teach a man how to fish and he will be fed for a lifetime, teach a man how to teach others to fish and he will feed a whole community”. A leader is therefore someone who creates other leaders just as autonomous as himself and who then perpetuates this leadership cycle.

To learn more about Leadership 2.0, please visit the website of the International Society of Exceptional Leaders, a network of people from all kinds of  professions and from all over the world who lead a life of leadership.
