A Field of Multiple Opportunity
Opportunity is all around us and has many facets, but it's not always obvious.
It hides behind the same appearance that everyone else sees, but it reveals itself depending on who you are.
Even though everyone sees the same appearance, different people recognize different aspects of opportunity.
What you see depends on the vision with which you start.
Consider a farmer's field.
Sam Walton had his own vision regarding fields.
The founder of Wal-Mart needed to open stores and lots of them. His discounting philosophy meant that he needed to drive costs down, cut profit margins to the bone, and generate huge volume.
He did this by seeing opportunity where others saw a field.
Walton flew his own airplane. He would fly low over an area of potential expansion, especially noticing any new subdivisions growing around existing small communities. When he found a key intersection between a few small towns and in the path of growth, he would land his plane, buy a piece of farmland, and build a new store.
To most people, it looked like a field. To Sam Walton, it looked like a field of opportunity.
But it was a field of opportunity for others as well.
The same land upon which now stands a thriving Wall-Mart looked very different to different people.
It was a farm for the farmer, an thumbnail sketch of economic indicators for the commodity speculator, a microcosm of the local environment for the scientist, a trend indicator for the demographer, a rustic landscape for a photographer, and a source of tax revenue for the county assessor.
The field was the same, but it embodied multiple opportunities.
What makes the difference is your vision.
If you know your vision, you will recognize your opportunities.

The Bubble Of Prosperity

Creating Meaningful Success
'No man is an island' the saying goes. The implication is that humans cannot exist alone. I would take the island aphorism a step further and contend that no one can be successful alone. Merely existing day-to-day is not enough. Success must be an essential part of our lives. Individual success builds our personal power, increases joy & fulfillment and grows a strong sense of self-esteem. Regardless of how we define our individual idea of success, it is impossible to manifest that desired outcome alone. Fortunately, women are collaborative by nature. We work well on teams and in efforts for the benefit of others. So why is it so difficult for us to act on behalf of ourselves?

Communication and Communication Skills - Understanding Your Audience
Response means "to answer" and that idea, in its purest form means a complete and honest answer, with all of the detail that constitutes a meaningful communication. Semantics teaches us that we must appraise our "audience" and determine the language level, detail level, maturity level etc. of the person(s) to whom we are speaking. Only then can we communicate effectively. An obvious example is communicating with a child vs. an adult ... language, speed of speech and even gestures and facial expression should vary, based on the audience!
