I’m going to do all the things I said I would do.
If you limit what you learn to what you hear in a classroom, you rob yourself of so much more.
I used to work with a man who came to work everyday wearing a look of boredom. It was hung permanently on his face. It would take him ten times as long to finish a task. He didn’t have any enthusiasm whatsoever other than to moan about what wasn’t working. He wasn’t motivated to find any solutions to challenges. He wasn’t moved by any new developments. Yet, everyday he came to work. He showed up but he wasn’t there.
I don’t want to be that guy. Neither should you.
Find your passion and do more and more of it until you can do it all the time.
Life is simply too short.
I’m discovering so much more than ever that friends are important. Scratch that – people who genuinely have your best interest at heart are important. We need to surround ourselves with such people. We may never know when their counsel or strength may be needed but one thing’s for sure. When you are down they will be there to lift you up. When you are weak, they will be your strength. When you are sad, they will bring laughter to your lips. And when you don’t feel like laughing, they’ll give you a hug. That’s what true friends are there for.
Make sure you are surrounded by such people. For without them we are alone.
I’ve been running my Vision Board workshops for just under three months now and it’s been tough yet fulfilling.
I guess starting any new venture can be a hard slug and there are times when you wonder if it’s worth it; especially when it seems you are getting no where really fast. Yes, I’m a tad impatient. 😊😊
I do always find it quite fortuitous that whenever I have those moments, someone sends me a review or a note to say how this workshop has been instrumental in shaping their life. That is simply humbling, encouraging, amazing and all those sort of words you could think of. 😆😆😆
Yesterday, I woke up to a review by a blogger who attended the very first workshop; the one I fondly refer to as the just-do-it-afraid-workshop. Such moments are a signpost for me and motivate me to work even harder. It’s even more special because it was unsolicited and unexpected. I just love that people’s lives are changing and I’m a part of that story. 🙌🙌🙌🙏🙏🙏
Here’s the review by What Mummy Wore. A little different but wonderful all the same. Enjoy!
Life isn’t about competing with one another but making a real difference in the lives of others
Last year I shared what I’d learnt in 2014 and I’m doing this again with what I learned in 2015.
- A life without a vision is like an untethered goat – aimless
- Thinking time is as important as doing time
- Commitment to one’s dreams is essential to achievement
- Successful people aren’t those who don’t fail but those who push on in spite of failure
- Don’t compare your early days to someone else’s finished work
- The life you want is determined by the actions and risks you are willing to take
- You already know what you want to do.
- Fear is toothless bulldog. The minute you start advancing towards what was scary, you find an innate boldness and fear is distant
- The support of family and friends is invaluable
- Faith is the glue that sticks it all together.
What ten things did you learn?
There is no escaping hard work if you want to be successful
