DWP Challenge: Week 2

Week 2 of the DWP Challenge kicks off tomorrow!!!

Our focus is going to be active listening – something that is difficult for many, including myself! The goal is to spend the day listening more than speaking. True listening where you are taking in what others are saying and not just waiting for an opportunity to have your say. We’ll recap here on the blog and over on Facebook to see how it went. Good luck!

Also, I’m currently soliciting volunteers to be a part of The Divatude Chronicles that will kick off on January 1st.  Do you have a story to share? Are you driven, inspired, victorious, and/or called-to-action? Are you still working on getting all your stuff together but still pushing forward despite the obstacles? Did you persevere despite challenges and setbacks and can now say “I did that”? I’d love to share your story and help motivate and inspire others. Please email me at if you’d like to participate.

Here’s a recap of the first 7 challenges:

Challenge 1: Write Personal Mission Statement

Challenge 2: Rather than criticize, coach. Motivate with positive feedback and influence.
Challenge 3: Do something nice for someone else – leave a soda money by the vending machine, pay for someone’s coffee, let that extra car turn during your morning or afternoon commute, etc
Challenge 4: Focus on the positive all day. No negative thoughts. (Warning – often when you make a conscious effort to be positive, it will seem as though anything and everything that can go wrong will – keep smiling and stay positive through it all).
Challenge 5: Connect with at least 4 other people and commit to motivating and inspiring one another for the next 5 days. It doesn’t have to be anything ornate – just a simple motivating text, email, Facebook post, etc.
Challenge 6: Have a selfish moment. Do something for yourself.
Challenge 7: Share lessons from your successes and failures with someone that can benefit from it.

Thanks for this! I have a really hard time listening, especially for any extended period of time. I want to change this!

This sounds like a great challenge! A personal mission statement is something I need to work on.
