Are you ready for everyday life or are you scrambling to get a costume together? With a few simple accessories to your daily activities you can have the same attributes as a superhero of your choice.

Don’t worry these few steps can be done as fast as a change in the phone booth.

fresh start of the day

Confidence in life

  • Confidence has power to increase your productivity
  • Daily affirmations has the power to increase self love
  • Lack of fear has the power to increase bravery
  • Stop, the action of comparing oneself to other has the power to increase the knowledge one’s own value

No joke, with confidence you won’t hide in a cave all day, rather you will have the super hero power to face life head on.

Alone or with your side kick

Accomplish goals

  • Setting goals increases the power of the future
  • Monitoring those goals increases the power of self checking
  • Revising daily actions increases the power of success
  • Success increases the power to meet the goals set in place, and that is amazing

You may not have came to this planet in a rocket and glowing rocks don’t harm you, however you are in need of finding out your true self and the power within.

Setting goals ALLOWS you to see your power

long-term Positive actions

  • Strength, in confidence to meet new people

Manners go a long way, no matter what PLANET you are from

The Fight against inhumanity

  • Equality is away of life that always increases power

Why the company name tags? The truth of how we see our own identity

EXPRESSIONS OF SUCCESS, October 2021.js.

Justice Stained In Ink.

How you act without the name tag makes you a leader, how you act with it makes you: The Boss or A b.o.s.

J. russel

Being a leader within any setting is going to have their own set of hard days, wearing a name tag allows others to know who we are and in the day of social media everything seem to be posted on someone’s wall by days end. Feeling overwhelmed with coworkers and customers, ready to through your name tag out the end… join the club a lot of people feel the same.

Read the highs and the lows of having a name tag, ID badge. Grasp an understanding of how we approach the hard days that formulates the respect we see demonstrated by others; making us proud for the world to know our name.

A name tag is placed on a uniform, office location, desk top or the parking place you have been granted. They are in place to identify you, keep you and others safe within the company, hold you accountable for your actions, or a promotion of success, among other reasons.

aspire Equality, justice and truth
  • yes vs no on the company name tags, Yes. It makes me feel as though I have accomplished some goals in my career path. The feeling and belief that “The Boss is proud of me”.

Giving staff the power to voice their ideas and needs can improve your place of employment. Knowing the name of your coworkers can be a bridge to a socially distanced 2020 to a new friendship in 2021.

yes vs no on the Event Center name tags, maybe, is a uniform enough or do they need to see an ID badge to know you are apart of the venue?

ID Badge are always great when in an event setting, unless formal is the code

What if you tipped the scale? By placing a name tag on staff and managers no longer wearing them. I think the staff would feel more accountable for the job and interactions they have with customers. Even greater it may boost their confidence, leading them to improve and shine in the areas which they have been placed.

  • yes vs no on the business name tags or ID, No, never on my personal clothes. A deeper reason to justify company supplied uniforms. However office space, yes to the ID as a security measure.

Often times the lack of unity within the company or the company’s dress code divides a wedge between staff. In some fast food industries a manager is given many shirts, or the ability to exchange them, while the staff maintain a two t-shirts maxima the duration of 6 months to a year.

question: Could employees with no name tags be less important compared to ones who carry them 24/7?

answer: It is not the ID or tag that makes any one important it merely tells the world your name and title.

positive leaders without a badge, in my WORLD

  • Rumpkie, our tristate trash pickup.
  • Pastor, Bishop, Minister, Our leaders in the faith and wellness of spiritual healing and education
  • Farmers, plant and harvest the food and/or raise cattle.
  • Truck Drivers, deliver the items that are needed around the nation and to our ports to go beyond our boarders

Those wearing an ID badge due to matters of high risk situations enabling the security within them and their team members

I personally say thank you

Those a name tag or ID is Needed for SAFETY and relations

  • Nurses and other health care workers
  • Onsite Journalist
  • Police and Firemen, if not by name by ID Number
  • Those in our Armed Forces
  • Our teachers and Education staff

As a customer are name tags important to you in places such as; food, retail, car repair, grocery centers? Tell us in the comments below

Why is it that we all, yes you know we all do this? We seek the names of the employes when something or someone has wronged us or someone we know.

How can we praise others, the women at Bank, or our coworkers when a job is completed and done right? Instead we say nothing because why, “Well that is there job”. Fact: it is their job; however, a person doing their job and doing it right needs to be praised by those it has benefitted. More often our managers should praise their team as well as the team praise their leaders.

Be kind, say Thank you

What is the point of having a name tag? quotes from the world…

  • unity within the members of a team, business or organization
  • to display community of the business and their customers
  • to have and hold accountability to the staff
  • the label brings on a happy spirit and smile within once self even if they are faking it

My personal however random, feelings on the subject:

  • Do not make the assumption of quality based on the title or name tag of a person.
  • Knowing each staff members greatest selling point will allow their skills to be used in a realistic manner.
  • A name tags is there to protect the staff and customers within the company, as well as; maintain order.

HELLO MY NAME IS

Important and worthy of the world to know

Equality, to be shared and received by all humans with kind actions and humble hearts

One Question still remains: Is a name tag causing a forced human nature to place judgement along with closed minded to be apart of our daily thinking and/or action within in your life? OR. Do you respect each worker within the community as we each have a job to maintain?

Leave your comment below, but first …

wiki dictionary, webster dictionary,

The last tidbit of information for you my reader with a name tag or no name tag at all one thing is for sure, you are important and I think the world should know our names. Since 1960 we have been trying to spread the names.

In 1960 the name tag was invented. It was referred to as an I. D. identification the

card fo who you where. A name tag is the name and title that shows others our

past experience and accomplishments. But God calls us by name….

a flowers has no name tag, however; God said “I care, For the birds and lily of the fields how much more am I that he cares for me and calls me by name. My name, not my title is printed on my father’s hands never to be removed. scripture,

4 ways to promote a healthy reaction to the reality we can not control

EXPRESSIONS OF SUCCESS. AUTHOR: js. 2021. July.

A bad day tends to lead to over thinking. Wondering if it was the conditions, circumstance, staff or simply yourself that created the day? Self reflection enables you to process the day. When we measure daily success it enables us recalculate or celebrate the appropriate action.

success found in Daily Reflection

Stress is a reality of adulthood. How one reacts to the stress will determine the satisfaction of that reality.

“Different views show different pictures”

Quote Unknown

1.) Know your stress points

Stress points are high level of emotions that disable your activities. Knowledge of these points and the source will help bring a understanding to the levels of stress. When the pin point is regonieved, of the first stress point, action now has a starting location. the snowball effect if you will can then be reduced.

Questions to ask yourself
  • Is the stress created by me, unrealistic expectation, lack of knowledge or preperation
  • Unresolved forgiveness within a relationship, personal or work related
  • The lack of physical or emotional needs being met
  • Hunger or thirst
  • Are you Worried, unable to focus on anything other
  • Anxiety or Depression
  • Life changes such as the death of human or animal, a break up in relationships or upset in the family circle
  • The Bad News Calls: results from a test, or call from land owner, friend.

With each question how would one react is the universe they will create. Positive actions or positive understanding of each process within the events will lend the strength to no longer allow stress point to affect other people or places it does not pertain to.

2.) Feed your body the proper nutrition

Nutrition is how food affects the body. By eating the right foods for the body at the rights times will maintain a healthy body. This is different for each human, however we are similar so you may look to other blogs for healthy food intake. When one takes care of the body it is less likely to cause an upset in the day to day activities.

Questions to ask yourself
  • Do I start my day off with breakfast
  • What type of day does my food consist of
  • What is my water intake
  • Am I able to use the restroom regularly
  • Do I need to visit with a doctor
  • Will packing my own food help me through my day
  • Does alcohol affect my proper food
  • How often do I move throughout day, work out, walk, or take the stairs

By changing a few of these at a time an increase of energy may help decrease the stress. Anger may be caused by lack of food. When one listens to the body through hunger or pain then taking the proper action allows the body to be relaxed; leading to the mind being at ease.

3.) Increase the level of knowledge

Knowledge is a great tool but when it not given or taken it may lead to a job or activity becoming harder to accomplish. Understanding how the knowledge was missed leads to finding a solution in obtaining it.

Questions to ask yourself
  • Is the lack of knowledge established by yourself
  • Was it the company or a personal oversight
  • What steps are needed to gain the knowledge
  • Is the knowledge one that you need to teach or instill
  • Do you need help and if so who and how do you ask the proper the channels
  • Self reflection may be needed for time to allow proper judgement into which action is needed
  • Seek advice, do research

The way you obtain knowledge is to seek it out. Funny how we have to learn how to learn. Often times this process makes a stronger when it is done ourselves because the reward is all ours. One may have to encounter new stress to relieve the stress on multiple levels.

4.)Creative thinking for daily encounters

  • Creative thinking of the employees or the coffee maker at the corner location
  • Are you a target for some unsaid reason
  • Do you need to soften your people skills
  • Is culture a topic
  • Home life of yourself and others
  • Age difference

Knowledge on a personal level with people as well as our personal communication skills can enhance the positive level in which information is received and given.

Creative thinking, Observation of daily living, Finding the Middle Ground, and Refreshing the Start to your day.

Finding the truth as to why the stress is there, will light the path to change it. Taking that path is up to you.

js
To give love we must first love ourselves.
 One area of stress often becomes two.

Be kind. Be humble. Be just. Be the person that changes your world one street at a time.

js

Justice within the lines can be found on social media lines. A community awaits those seeking justice and success. Find your support team and change the world one action at a time.

Signification in Setting Goals, Expression of Success

Author: js Posted: May 2021

Definition of Signification.

Verb. The importance of regularly conveying your intent.

Webster

Goals are set to change what currently is. Goals can be set for employment, education, hobbies, relationships and the duration can vary also. How each person achieves their goals varies in us all.

Key terms when managing goals

  • Consistency, work on them daily
  • Pursuit, an ongoing process
  • Review, each day and amend when needed
  • Obstacles, they will come do not let yourself quit
  • Clarity, your time frame
  • Accountable, sometimes we need a friend to help
  • Encouragement, write yourself notes and place them through out your belongings to be found later. (this is a great help for myself)
  • Never Give Up!

Three R’s to help you Succeed

Review. We may not like football but one thing it has taught us is the importance of a haft time. Reevaluate the game plan you have for your goals. Changing the the play may lead to greater progress. Not all goals are the same and what works for one may not work for another. Therefore; if it is not getting the results you want, change it up. These are your goals, learn and change as you go.

Remain realistic. Stretching for the stars can be a goal but sometimes landing on the moon first can lead to better results. Knowing the level of each goal whether they be short or long term is another key to your success.

Relax and stay positive. You can do what you set out to accomplish.

Consistently doing any action well bring about results. It is up to you whether they are positive or negative.

js

Short-Term Goal is anything less than a 12 month period. It can be as short as your daily list of to do.

Mid-Term Goals is the 3-5 years. They can be goals that lead up to the long term. Don’t leave mid-term out. Remember the moon before the stars.

Long-Term Goals is something that takes time and planning, 5 years and greater.

js

Achieve Defined. Verb. Successfully bring about or reach an objective, level, or skill. Through Courage

Google Dictionary

It is time for our haft time report!

Dig a little deeper.

Words from the word meaning defined: idea, hope, a mood, a mind set, serve as, a sign.

Words from the word signification defined: regularly, expressed information, to carry, to make form.

Webster

Be Honest. When you created your list of goals did you give them meaning; just an idea or a mood. Or are your goals significant to you; regularly worked on? Did you write your goals down or are they a list still in your mind? (If you did not write them down, please write them down after you are done reading) Sitting in place a system to allow accountability. Work on them daily to insure that your goals do not remain a list in your mind or a list created. Action is needed to bring goals into fruition.

I challenge you to take a look at your goals and chose if you are going to have meaning or significance.

“Realization; the choice of action is yours. The future is yours. Find your truth, so that you are able to justify your life to yourself. How the world sees you is not important! Your goals are yours and if no one knows them no one will know if you failed. However; if you do fail please do not stop trying. You are amazing and you deserve success in all areas of your life. Let justice and peace ring out in your life.”

I encourage you, because I believe every human is worthy of success. js

Justice is a behavior or treatment of respect, fairness and genuine peace with and within people.

aspire for truth to inspire justice

Above all else when you reach your goals celebrate your success, and tell the world. Come back and share with justice in the ink or go to my Facebook page, Justice in the Lines. “I care! I want you to succeed in all matters you find important.” js Remember this, and read the next line out load… I can complete my goals! I am worthy of success! Why not me? Why not now? Yes I can, I can achieve my desires!
