Show Some Class

This week has been very productive and enjoyable – the highlight being the Masterclass I ran for the staff of a fast-growing organisation called Radius Payments. This is the third time I have run the Masterclass for them on behalf of Live and Learn ltd

I really enjoy working with Lisa, Paul, Marie and the team at Live and Learn who book me as their Mental Resilience specialist across the country.

A great success story

The Radius story began in 1990 when Bill Holmes set up a new fuel card company in the north of England called UK Fuels. After more than 20 years of growth and development across Europe they now have more than 21 offices in 14 countries.

This was a great session held in their brand-new Global Headquarters in their state of the art boardroom. What a great experience it was with excellent interaction and feedback.

Word for Today

I came across these wise words in ‘Word for Today’ this week about ‘Class’ and they made me think about how much class I demonstrate.

Show some Class

“We decided to reprint these timeless words on ‘class’ by columnist Ann Landers: ‘Class is just confidence dressed in humility. It keeps its word, its temper, and its friends. It has a steady eye, a steady nerve, a steady tongue, and steady habits.

It’s silent when it has nothing to say, thoughtful when it judges, and is always first to make amends when it’s wrong. Class doesn’t run scared. It’s surefooted, committed, and handles whatever comes along. Class has a sense of humour.

It knows that a good laugh is often the best lubricant for oiling the machinery of human relations. Class never makes excuses. It takes its lumps, learns from its mistakes, and becomes wiser.

Class knows that courtesy and good manners are nothing more than a series of small sacrifices. It bespeaks an aristocracy that is not dependent on ancestors or money. A blue-blood can be totally without it, while the son of a Welsh coal miner may ooze it out of every pore.

Class can walk with kings, yet still keep its virtue; talk with crowds, yet still maintain the common touch. Everyone is comfortable with a person who has class – because they are comfortable with themselves.’ Today, show some ‘class’!”

Class is worth developing

There is so much here I think this is worth reading a few times to get the gist of what she is saying. Class can be so much yet is attainable by anyone.

Thoughts for the week:

1. Spend this week thinking about Class and what it means to you.
2. As you go through each day think about how much class you show.
3. Take a good look at all the virtues of class in this article and try to demonstrate these in the coming week.

Well that’s it for this week have a wonderful weekend and stay positive.

Warm regards
