Focus

Comments Off on Focus
In the modern world we live in, maintaining our focus can be difficult. When delivering workshops, I receive so many comments like: I can’t manage my time. I am always stressed. I have too much to do. I procrastinate. I am frustrated. I am stuck. We do, in general, have a focus issue. We get distracted all the time. Even though I am aware of this, at times, I struggle to stay on task. Our attention span is getting shorter and shorter. So how can we focus more?

Focus on You

Comments Off on Focus on You
For you to be your best and look after and support others, you need to look after yourself first. I have a friend who recently was doing everything – working a number of jobs, getting up at 4:30 am to start her day, not eating properly because she was too busy, no time to exercise, no time for a chat with friends and not enough time with her family. Guess what happened? She ‘hit the wall’. Her body had given her a few warnings to slow down, take some time for herself, but she didn’t listen. She was just trying to do it all for everyone. She became quite unwell and then she couldn’t do anything for anyone for a period of time. It really doesn’t take a lot to look after...

The Ant Philosophy

Comments Off on The Ant Philosophy
Have you ever taken the time to watch ants? I know it’s a strange question. My brother-in-law, as a child, had a fascination with ants. He refers to them as his ‘friends’ because they were always waiting for him every time he arrived home! Jim Rohn teaches about “The Ant Philosophy”. Jim recommends that we should study ants. Jim has been teaching children about a simple but powerful concept – The Ant Philosophy. Jim believes that ants have an amazing four-part philosophy. Part 1 – Ants never quit. That’s a good philosophy. If they’re headed somewhere and you try to stop them, they’ll look for another way. They’ll climb over, they’ll climb under, and they’ll climb around. They keep looking for another way. Perhaps a good philosophy to embrace; to never quit...

Our Thinking Can Impact Our Results

Comments Off on Our Thinking Can Impact Our Results
Our thoughts, those things that we think about on a day-to-day basis, have a huge effect on the results that show up in our lives. They actually say that 90% of our thoughts each day are the same thoughts as the day before. So what do you think about? Thoughts trigger our emotions. Emotions are very powerful, and our decisions are made based on our emotions. That means that our emotions determine the choices that we make, which in turn leads to the actions we take.

Making Mistakes

Comments Off on Making Mistakes
I don’t know about you, but for a period of time, I just didn’t want to get anything wrong or make a mistake. Boy, how that one desire restricted my life. It restricted what I could achieve, how far I stretched and kept me in my safety and comfort zone. Then one day I had a mind switch and realised the more mistakes I make, the more I learn, the bigger my comfort zone, the more I can achieve. I started to look at mistakes and failures as part of my expansion, as part of being able to achieve everything that I wanted to achieve. You may have heard the story of this famous figure before. However, I would love to share it again. Failed in business, 1831 Defeated for legislature, 1832 Second failure...
