Why Your Life Journey Matters.

building your journey through life and following the pathEvery one of us has our own life journey. It’s a personal thing that often has too many people trying to influence. The outside influence is all around us. Why is it that all we hear about is bad news? Bad news accounts for a miniscule part of the news as a whole, but all we seem to hear about is murder, bombings, terrorism and the like. Why is that? I think it’s to drive fear into all of us so we comply with the control that is “invisible” all around us. We never really know the power of what we can achieve until we let go of this and set out our own life path.

The control can be as simple as people setting limits on us. Education systems in the past (and maybe even now in some circumstances) limited the expectations of certain pupils. What kind of message does that send out? It promotes Continue reading

Life Revolves Around The Right Attitude

You need the right attitude to make itYour attitude to work and to life will have a really big impact. We’ve all heard the glass half full or glass half empty way of looking at things. Both are the same thing in practice, but can also have a completely different meaning and depend on the right attitude to your action in getting what you want from life. You have the ability in you to achieve anything you want to, but you may not yet realize it. If your attitude is positive, negative or somewhere in the middle, you really can take control of your life and set yourself free! Everyone has potential and it’s time Continue reading

Why Being Scared Of The Future Should Be Banned.

fear of what\'s aheadIt’s true that many are afraid of what the future has to offer. Why is it that the future is so scary?

I was browsing through one site looking for ideas for a blog post. I came across a student who was reaching the end of his studies and who had just one year left making it clear that “he was scared of the future”. WHY?

Because of the reaction he was getting to his work! Outside influences were the issues that were making him think he wasn’t good enough. What could he do to make this change?

I believe there are Continue reading

Be Prepared To Make Mistakes.

A mistake made is naturalWelcome to part 5 of 10 on the principles that Einstein based his life on.

It’s a well known fact that we all make mistakes, but are you prepared to actually make mistakes in order to move forward in your business and life?

Einstein said “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.”

People make mistakes all the time, but we hate to do that don’t we? Making a mistake leads to one emotion that we all want to avoid – FEAR! If we are to move forward and make the best life and business we can, then it’s inevitable that we make mistakes at some time in the process of living and working. How we deal with it makes Continue reading

Be Like Einstein And Follow Your Curiosity

This is part one of a ten part series based on lessons that the great Albert Einstein lived his life by. This subject was discussed in a mentoring group I participate in and thought it good to share. I hope to show how you can take advantage of these lessons to help demonstrate the genius that you have inside you too.

Einstein didn’t consider himself a genius. He did, however, consider himself curious saying “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious”.

Do you follow your curiosity like Einstein did, or Continue reading

Form Is Temporary, Class Is Permanent – Persist With What You Really Want!

You’re young and you have a dream, but something puts a stop to that dream or fills you with so much doubt that you leave it alone.

It may be that you’re heading towards middle age and you have been doing something you love to do and yet are disillusioned and you give up what you’re doing even though you are really good at it. You know you should persist at it, but you are tired and have had enough!

The latter is what happened to me. In fact, to a certain extent, BOTH situations are true.

When I was a teenager, my dream was to play music for a living. I wanted to be a pianist Continue reading

Be A Masterpiece With Crystal Clear Vision.

be a masterpeiceThe mistake a lot of people make, including me, is that they don’t have a crystal clear vision of where they want to be when they START in their business. Yes, they have an ambition and a desire, but is this enough? Decide to be a masterpiece in your own world by having a clear vision on what you want and stop just fumbling around for long periods trying to make things happen without a canvas in your life that has the foundation of a masterpiece as the outcome of your efforts.

Compete With Yourself And Do One More Thing.

one more thingWhether you’re just starting out, or even if you’re already “into” your business, have you ever thought of how much of a difference “one more thing” done each day will make? If you don’t like making calls for instance and you get through that barrier and start making calls, if you were to make one more call every day how many calls could you make before you reach your maximum? Personal trainers look for doing one more of something to find the maximum level achievable and then repetition of that level leads to better results and adopting this attitude to business will increase results and benefits for that business.
