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...

The Law of Diminishing Intent

Comments Off on The Law of Diminishing Intent

The Law of Diminishing Intent states that the longer you put off doing something, the less likely you are to do it.

This is the difference between people who get what they want and the people who don’t.

People who get what they want are the action takers. They decide what they want and they take action towards getting it – immediate action.

Short Cut to Calm

Comments Off on Short Cut to Calm
Feeling stressed out and worried can be exhausting. There’s the trying to get everything done, and that’s tiring enough. Then there’s the extra energy that it takes to worry, and the tension caused by stress. All that leaves us even more drained. When we’re stressed and spinning, it can help to short-circuit the action. Maybe we started off our day with something that caused a cascading domino effect of stress. Maybe it’s been intense for days or weeks, or even months. Whatever the case, when you catch yourself in stressed-out mode, or you notice that mind has sped off on a track of worrying, a key to returning to calm is to stop that action. Our breath can be used as a short cut back to calm. In fact, our...

Today Is Unwritten

Comments Off on Today Is Unwritten
A wonderful thought to have at this very moment, right where you are, no matter how much of this day has gone or how much of this day is still to happen. Whatever’s left is … yet unwritten. Words, ideas, images, experiences and feelings on the pages of your life book have yet to be experienced. It never gets repeated again so hold for just a moment how precious it is that you are alive, you have this moment and that you get to choose a never-again repeated day.
