Another Weekend Bites the Dust…

Many of us have died… many more of us have been born… far too many of us are struggling in this thing we call life…

 

Life is simply too short to waste…

 

Today… more harsh words have been expressed than words of love and encouragement have been shared

 

WHY…? Because we have become too fearful… too complacent!

 

We live in a world where real connections are more critical than ever… for our success… as well as for our well-being.

 

Sadly… we have created a world where trust, authenticity, real values and true, honest communication have become VICTIMS to EXPEDIENCY.

 

A world where everything is done in meaningless soundbites… where narcissism and blatantly judgemental behaviour has become the norm… where people are valuing their uninformed and often worthless opinions instead of becoming truly informed…

 

Where REAL RELATIONSHIPS have started to disappear under the weight of this rampant onslaught on our lives…

 

Let’s make a promise to ourselves to communicate… write, talk, text (this is not really writing…LOL), sign, mime, hug or simply express with a smile… a word or two of encouragement, praise, caring and love to at least three people in the next 24 hours…

 

WHY…?

 

Because life IS too fleeting and a kind word of encouragement does more to lift someone’s spirits than anything else I know.

 

Be an ENCOURAGER for your life as well as for others… blessings… 🙂

Trying To Get Out Of Your Box?

I just love the start of every new year… everyone is excited about possibilities, new opportunities and the chance to be different… make a difference and hopefully achieve a different result than previous years.

Sadly, now that the year has started… most people will be in the same place, or even worse off than when they started last year.  I know that sounds like I am being a “wet blanket”, but hindsight ALWAYS gives you 20/20 vision… and the majority of us prove this to be the case year in and year out.

I saw this graphic and I felt compelled to share it with you because it reminds me of one of the profound lines in the first of the Matrix Trilogy movies….

“…there is no box!”

Constantly people are telling us to “think outside the box”… very few of them show us how, and I suspect that most of them don’t even know how.

These so-called boxes that we are supposed to be in are totally of our own making… YES we are influenced by society, our parents, religion, governments, our peers etc…. BUT WE CREATE THE BOXES THAT RESTRICT US, so we are the only ones that can create change.

May I suggest a different way of thinking…

  • These boxes are an illusion.
  • Stop trying to think outside of a box that doesn’t exist.
  • Understand that in fact… there “IS NO BOX!”

Like our little ratty friend in the picture you will start to realise that attaining freedom only occurs when you shift your perspective and change your reality.

You Want Instant… Stop Bitching About The Result!

This problem needs your attention.

Instant this… instant that… when is it going to stop!

Guess what? It’s not!

You want instant business success… well I’ve got news for you and it’s all bad… THERE IS NO SUCH THING!

So how do you fix this… how can you achieve the success you want, in the shortest possible time.

Let me get to that in a moment, but there is something you need to understand first.

You live in an instant world so get used to it, but PLEASE… stop bitching about the results, because you can always do something about it.

You use instant coffee, pre-made food or take out, instant entertainment, instant connection using social media… Et cetera, et cetera… and you are never satisfied.

Yet when you make a decent cup of coffee (not instant) or go to a good coffee shop, you appreciate the quality of the coffee that you are drinking and you savour every moment as you take the time to chill, look at the world and enjoy a coffee (or tea, if you prefer).

It’s no different with food.

You often throw things together quickly (usually from a packet, or you get take out), throw it down, and wonder why you don’t enjoy your meals and yet when you go out to dinner and have good quality, fresh food that is prepared for you, or for that matter, when you actually prepare a PROPER meal for yourself, you savour every single mouthful and you appreciate the work you have put into the meal or the effort a chef and the restaurant staff are doing for you.

And don’t get me started on social media… so connected and yet so lonely… REALLY!

So… let’s get back to your business

To be better connected, to build and have fabulous conversations with real people… you need to take time.

From my perspective (and it’s just my view), there is no greater joy than having a great conversation, over good coffee/tea, building a strong relationship… AND one of the side benefits of doing this, is that you can build a successful and profitable business quickly and easily (NO not INSTANT), as any good relationship takes time and effort.

To do this right, it does take time and effort, but not as much as you think. So where do you start?

I would like to start by giving you a gift, my “5 Top Secrets of Networking!”, which are guaranteed to get your business networking moving…

Please click on this link to get your gift – “Five Secrets of Networking”

I hope that this is the beginning of a great relationship, let’s keep the conversation going.
