“One of the greatest discoveries a man makes, one of his great surprises, is to find he can do what he was afraid he couldn’t do.” – Henry Ford Have you realised that most of the barriers that are challenging us have been put there by us in the first place? Logic would tell us then that if we put them there, then we can take them down. One of the great discoveries you and I can make is to find that we really can do something we were afraid we couldn’t do. The barrier is something we have put up inside ourselves and we really can take it down. What barrier will you take down this week? Have a go, what have you got to lose? If you are successful, much is...

It’s Time to Kick Some Goals

Comments Off on It’s Time to Kick Some Goals
Think of some things you want to happen in your life. Some amazing, exciting and really imaginative things you want. Write them out now. Goal 1 Goal 2 Goal 3 Goal 4 Goal 5 Goal 6 Goal 7 Goal 8 Goal 9 Goal 10 You can keep going, of course, if you wish or not even have 10 goals. The number is irrelevant; the goal is what is important. Now arrange them in order of priority. Then set a target date. Now, what is the first step for the first goal? Great! Now, go and do that!

What Are You Doing For Others?

Comments Off on What Are You Doing For Others?
Martin Luther King, Jr. once said, “Every person must decide whether they will walk in the light of creative altruism or the darkness of destructive selfishness.” This is the judgment. Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, “What are you doing for others?” Did you know that contribution is one of our six core needs? To feel whole and complete, we are programmed to contribute. There are many ways to contribute and I’m not necessarily talking about volunteering on a regular occasion. Did you realise that helping others can be as simple as making a decision to smile more than you currently do? This is a decision that I made a couple of years ago. Now, I find that I am automatically smiling just as I walk along the street without realising...

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...
