For the most part most people are pretty content and if you ask them what they look forward to it is usually centered around something that they consider fun; different from the norm or just to break up the monotony. This also reminds me of some of the reasons of why I love Tigger and what he taught me.
I often use a lot of the things I learn about Tigger; when sharing motivational or training points with my team. It is no secret that I love Tigger. He is just excited all the time… I can totally relate…
I have often thought of strangers as friends I have not met – maybe not the guy who doesn’t wash his hands in the men’s room, but even he with the right mentoring, he will learn to have better hygiene.
Some “Rules” that I want to share with you on the this “TIGGERIFIC” FUN Friday that I learned from Tigger are:
1.) Tigger Overcomes His Flaws If ever there was anyone who could have benefited from being hooked on phonics, it is Tigger. As much as he mispronounces and misuses words he just keeps going and has a short memory when it comes to his failures. Often too many times we let our own deficiencies trap us in a fear of ever venturing out… not Tigger.
1.) Tigger Bounces Back As much as I love Tigger, I have to admit that I am as equally not fond of Rabbit – and that is not because he doesn’t have a real name. Rabbit is constantly setting Tigger up for failure and Tigger’s Attitude is a reflection of his Altitude when he is “Bouncing Out Of Here“! Not even the best laid plans derail Tigger from the fun he intends to have.
1.) Tigger Is One Of A Kind Most of us adults have either sang or have heard our kids sing the “The Tigger Song”. In his song he stresses how he is one of a kind.
Now I can’t say that Tigger can easily emulate anyone; because, he lacks other skill sets that would make it easy for him to duplicate any system. What I will say is that he figures out within his means to get all of what he can out of who he is! I wish we all could learn to do that more…
1.) Tigger Embraces His Critics I love that even with prior knowledge that Rabbit tries to do him in or isn’t very welcoming of Tigger; that never stops him from always trying to make peace with his adversaries, temporary or otherwise. He never holds anything back. You will always know where you stand with Tigger. He has a heart the size of his leaping ability which I believe he uses to bridge the gaps in misunderstanding; while landing on a resolution – even when landing on Rabbit.
1.) Tigger is Always Ready… For Anything! It might be easier trying to find a honey pot that Pooh doesn’t like than trying to catch Tigger with a surprise. He is ready for any adventure big or small; tough or easy; he will always have fun along the way. For Tigger, the journey is always as important as the destination.
1.) Tigger Embraces Change The more we live eventually we will always change. Even though we try to fight it we shouldn’t because we can grow. It keeps us from being open.
I hope you found value in the “Rules” that Tigger has shown me. I try to adopt those in my daily life and in my business. So what are the morals of the blog post, you ask?
GET EXCITED! BE YOU! EMBRACE CHANGE! EXPECT THE UNEXECPTED…MOST IMPORTANTLY HAVE A “RUBBER BUTT”!
Bounce back when things know you on your kiester!
