The Classic Pamela Positive: Winston Churchill: We’re Not Made of Sugar Candy

cotton-candy-434810_1280“We have not journeyed all this way across the centuries, across the oceans, across the mountains, across the prairies, because we are made of sugar candy.”

-Sir Winston Churchill

Going through a tough time?  Does the mountain you are climbing seem too steep?

But it’s not just a mountain, and it’s not your only mountain.

You are striving not only for yourself, but also for others.  Whatever you are trying to achieve today, whatever you hope to have in the future, can be used as inspiration for others…

You’re learning from it. Growing from it, and becoming a better person. Don’t give up, you don’t want to do that; Don’t be discouraged, it won’t aid your cause.  You’re not a piece of cotton candy, disintegrating; no, you are firm, resolute, patient.

Your mountain lesson isn’t just for you. It will be an example, a story with which you can encourage others.

Thank you for persevering — the world thanks you!

Widely regarded as one of the greatest wartime leaders of the 20th century, Churchill was also an officer in the British Army, a historian, a writer, and an artist. He is the only British Prime Minister to have received the Nobel Prize in Literature, and was the first person to be made an honorary citizen of the United States.  He was born into the aristocratic family of the Dukes of Marlborough, a branch of the Spencer family.  Churchill married Clementine Hozier in 1908 and had five children: Diana, Randolph, Sarah, Marigold Frances, and Mary.

Kellogg’s Company Values at the Heart of Its Brand: Two Values I Love

Here are two values I love from Kellogg Company’s official values:

• “Speak positively and supportively about team members when apart.”

 
“Display openness and curiosity to learn from anyone, anywhere.”

Learn, and care, about each person we meet. This can be very hard to do. Sometimes, we feel we just don’t have time to get to know and value others as much as we’d like.

Yet you can build it into your culture. Here are ideas where you can implement Kelloggs’ values:

1- Make Learning About Your Team a Part of your Management Meetings. 

Have the team leader of the meeting share a Fun Fact every week.  It’s helped UniversalGiving team members bond in new ways.  You will learn things you never imagined.

2- Give Your Team a Creative Voice.  

Allow team members to post on your company blog, even if it is not the exact topic you would normally choose. For example, we have an astute young woman on our team who is very talented. She’s publishing her own book, a young adult fantasy novel. Not a part of UniversalGiving‘s mission directly?  You will find a way: For us, she is posting her book, with links to how you can “Share the Love of Reading” on UniversalGiving or give to the Gift of Literacy.  Now, you are being creative and related!

3- Watch Your Management Meetings.

Sometimes, you and your COO or Management Team need to work on some really key team building of a member who might not be reaching your values or execution.  Sometimes, you have to encourage them to a different or better career path.  Will you speak positively? Just as you must be constructive and compassionate with them in person, so you should in private conversations.  Let’s remember that, if we can. It’s kind, understanding, compassionate, just as we would want to be treated.
