Day 57: Attended the “Destined to WIN” Conference

Met people.

Chatted with friends.

Learned stuff.

Overcaffeinated.

Wore pink lipstick (called “hazard”).

Towered in heels.

Destined to WIN. *My friend Laine (who gave me a photography lesson) took photos for the event–she’s amazing!

It was also suggested that people take the strength finder test, but since I’m dirt poor, I’m going to skip that step and just assume the results would say I’m great at everything. Oh, and this woman really impressed me during her talk. She seemed to have a pretty firm grasp on psychology-y things, and how to translate how your brain works, to how your business works.

And here are “Eight Ways to Generate Inspiration,” from Jeannette Grace‘s “How to Get Others to Gravitate to You.”

1. PROCLAIM

  • Speak up when you see something great.

2. MODEL

  • Set the tone and the expectation.

3. FOLLOW

  • Do what you say you will do.

4. LATITUDE

  • Give it to yourself and to others.

5. COURAGE

  • Stand up. Do the right thing. Take risks.

6. INNER WEIRDO

  • Embrace it! Do something unexpected.

7. GIFT

  • Do something for someone else each day.

8. BE INSPIRED

  • Keep learning.

  1. Take the strength finder test! And do it with a friend or co-worker or sister. Incredible insight. We just did it at work, and it’s made a huge impact on how well we function as a team. Perhaps you could convince your employer to spring for the book/test?
