I asked twenty plus 6th and 7th graders, “Who likes to win?”  They returned with several cheers and screams and an agreement of the page we were all on.  I think it is safe to say that most of us enjoy winning.  I am writing about win win opportunities because in my opinion, to experience win win relationships, we must be able to recognize win win opportunities.

Do you believe everything happens for a reason?  If you do or if you don’t, opportunities consistently present themselves.  Whether they be a passing on the street, a FB friend request, an old friend encounter, new friend close encounter, they are always presenting themselves.  Would you recognize it to be a win win if you saw it?  How about if you felt it?

I’m going to be bold and say that we all have an instinct within us that speaks to us at times like this.  The voice may have checked out, may have a low tone, or may be lost amongst the debris of distractions present on a daily basis.  The point is to find your voice.

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to take 5 minutes and listen for your voice.  Can’t hear it?  Shh, listen again.   Still can’t hear it, turn off your phone, TV, dim the lights, and close your eyes, and listen to the first few words that come into your head.  Once we have established connection, we then can give your voice it’s purpose.  Part 2, The Warm-up.

A Sanity approach to winning,
