Mastermind Session #2:
The Remote COO team had our second session with Stefani Pady, a John Maxwell Certified Coach, as we read and study our way through John Maxwell’s book titled, The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. We focused on the second and third chapters which are “The Law of the Mirror” and “The Law of Reflection.” Stefani opened the session with this quote by Johnetta McSwain from the book – “I get a chance to be anyone I want to be.” This is such a powerful idea! We all have the ability to be who we want to be and create the life we want for ourselves.
To begin this process, it is important to nurture your own self-image to ensure you see the value in yourself and believe you are truly worthy of spending the time and effort on adding value to yourself and your life. This chapter walks you through 10 important steps to build your self-image and finishes with the positive affirmation that “You can become the person you have the potential to be. You just need to believe in yourself to get started.”
The next chapter, “The Law of the Reflection,” focuses on how important it is to pause and reflect. I love the idea from Maxwell that taking the time to pause “allows growth to catch up with you.” How many of us are guilty of moving so swiftly through life that we don’t take the time to reflect on experiences and important moments in life? I can certainly raise my hand. By doing so, we miss out on making the necessary course corrections to get us back on track when we veer off in the wrong direction. Being intentional about reflecting on our experiences and choices in life aid in our growth and safeguard us against traveling down the wrong road again in the future. Maxwell ends this chapter by asking a set of personal awareness questions to help us develop our own personal awareness and lead us to discover what we truly know, think, and believe.
