About personalpower4me

Hi, I am David, accredited Life Coach through the Life Coaching Institute of Aust. (LCIA). Briefly, I live on the southern fringe of Australia's Gold Coast,about 1 hour's drive south of Brisbane. I am married with 2 adult daughters. I have 30 years career experience in Banking & Real estate, over 50 years experience in life's great University and enjoy: keeping fit, most sports, interesting people and life itself.

How to seize This moment …

The next 10 years will be the most pivotal and defining of Your life. Don’t let them slip away.

You are about to enter your 40′s and may be feeling some apprehension about what lies ahead. It could be just vanity … hey, none of us like getting older.

Or, it could be something else ….. You have no idea what you want to achieve over the next year let alone the next few years. Or you do, however are not sure how to go about it and don’t like asking for help.

You are now turning 50.  Firstly Congratulations. Secondly, how have the last 10 years been for You?

These two scenarios play out in the lives of millions of people every day. I venture to say that at least 90% of the people now turning 50 have little idea where the last 10 years went or how unproductive they really were. Unproductive from a viewpoint that opportunities have come & gone without notice and personal growth has been non – existent.

Put simply, life is precious & life gets away very quickly. You can “go with the flow” & see [hope] where that takes You or you can make some choices and set some guide posts for the years to come.

This matters. The mSelf Motivationoment is Now. Now is when You make the Choice to make each day & year of Your life count. No regrets. All opportunities embraced. Mistakes will be made, lessons will be learned …but this is Living by ‘doing’. And that’s the best way to live.

That aside, You can be one of the tens of thousands who seek help from trusted Coaches or mentors or Life Guides. Doing this is one of the best choices that you can make. Rarely do people “make it” by themselves.

Reach out and live more fully

Be good to yourself

Short Story No.3

Hi Again.

“Smallville” is only for the son of Superman. It shouldn’t be a place where you reside. Agreeably there is a place for everyone on this planet however accepting small as an alternative to Big is giving in.Untitled26

“What is” is no replacement for “what if”. Ask the Question.Think Bigger, expand your horizons and create your best Life.

How to be Inspiring without really trying

I’ve had a few comments recently via Social Media thanking me for being so inspiring. Now while I appreciate the comments very much I struggled a little with this concept of being inspirational.

I know that my intent in part is to inspire others to take action. Actually, that is really my bottom line. However this “inspiring” thing got me thinking.

I am not doing anything out of the ordinary.blog26

I walk my talk. I speak and write with passion. I Love what I do.

I care about many things on this planet … the people, the environment, the wildlife. I enjoy seeing people excel. I enjoy seeing people value life and live it fully.

I like to share my ideas and I like to share my best work.

I care a lot. I love to play. I see life as an adventure and I “test” myself by seeing how fit I can get in my latter mid life years.

Now, I don’t see that as anything out of the ordinary.

So I guess there you have it . Simply be your best “ordinary” and You to can be inspirational.

You have it in You. If I can do it, so can You.

And that’s the real clue. Simply be the best version of You.

Be good to yourself

Heading toward 60 [part 4] – An open letter to myself

My adventure continues toward my next [age related] milestone.
Lately, I’ve been asking myself some pretty serious questions. Some I have been able to answer, some I can’t … right now.
Here’s how it’s unfolded.

An open letter to myself …
David, you’ve long aspired to become the best Mid Life Coach on the planet, how are you going with this? You’ve worked hard at it, gained some traction then saw some of that traction slip away. How do You keep going?

You have inspired many on various Social Media channels with uplifting commentary & support and have gained many admirers. Is this a true reflection of your Life right now? You have been successful in encouraging others to pursue their dream & goals however have you sacrificed some dreams & goals of your own?

David, you mean well, your heart is in the right place however … is this enough to live the life that you really desire? Will You drive on and become the best Mid Life Coach on the planet?Self Discovery

I have more questions left unanswered than answered here. My purpose in life is to live a purposeful life. I love supporting others with their dreams & goals throughout their Mid life years and removing any of their obstacles along the way … and I will continue to love that.

I just have to find the best way to do this so that I have a “win” as well as my clients. The adventure continues. Calmness and deep breathing mandatory.

Be good to yourself

No, he isn’t my life coach (I’m waaaay too young to qualify, of course), but we met recently through Twitter and I do find him very uplifting and encouraging. We can all use more of that in our lives, can’t we?

Why did you become a Life Coach for ‘Mid Lifers’ ?

“Coaching/mentoring/guiding has been part of me for the past 20 years, initially without me actually realising it. In my previous professional lives as a Banker and also later as a Realtor, I was always “helping”. I was always communicating…

Hi again.

You can dream it up. You can talk about it. You can polish up your “wish genie”. You can read all there is to read. You may even set yourself some stirring goals.

But that will all come to nothing unless you own these characteristics … Three Words4

Choice – The Power and the Passion

Hi.

I am [again] unashamedly promoting my fresh blog post at my website.

However, this one is bigger than Big, if that’s possible. I’ve written about ‘Big’ recently as well.

It’s about “Choice” and it impacts upon You and Me. The choices that you make each day [and don't make] determine whether you have fun, success, disappointment or failure.Art4

I’ve jotted down 14 Best Choices for You to consider and added some extra verbage which hopefully makes sense. Can’t tell you any more, you will have to read it here

Please do me the favour of visiting the link and telling me what You think.

A “Big” story and Your Life’s Art

Hi.

I have just posted a dynamic new offering at my website.

I’d love You to visit. Briefly, the storyline goes like this …

“Big” is often seen as … well, Big. You know huge, gynormous, excessive, epic.881318-lake-eyre

Did you know that “Big” can also be the very first step that you take toward a goal of yours or the very first step you take toward following “that” dream of yours?

“Big” can also be stepping outside your comfort zone or thinking outside the box that you have created for yourself.

Big doesn’t have to be epic however the results that you get when you play “Big” … are epic.

And talking about epic Your Life’s Art is the top of the mountain. You are a creation machine. In fact, Your Life is your Art. Read more of this Big story  here

Forget about the “numbers”. The Math will add up if you do this one thing …

Be Yourself –  Express Yourself.

You will angst over the numbers. For example … How many shares , re tweets, likes, stats, visits, comments that you get on Social Media or on your website or blog. And good on You if you’re getting plenty.

Life, like Social Media doesn’t have it’s real bottom line in “the numbers”. Like how many friends you may have, how many cars are parked in your garage, how many houses that you own. And good on You if you have plenty of these.

It may look good on the surface. Your friends may there but are they really ‘with you’ or are they in love with your stuff? The cars and the houses look great but who knows if they are owned or mortgaged to the hilt, lease is about to expire or whatever. They are just numbers.

No, the real substance is You. Are You the real deal? Or are you just going through life like a cardboard cutout? Whether it’s your business self or personal self, you need to be “real” to seal any deal worth sealing.

Real friends and real Social Media influence and real “wealth/sucess” [whatever that may be for you] will come from your own true Self Expression. Be Yourself – Express Yourself. 

Create your own “Art” in life . Be proud of the Art that you do create. Art with substance. Art with integrity. Art5Art with Purpose.

Flaunt it. Love it. Be grateful that you can create it.

Don’t sweat the numbers. Work on the substance.

True ‘numbers’ will gravitate to you when you are acting as your True self. Be your own Artist. Create the life and the person that You are meant to live and to be … with Integrity.

True “followers” will be by your side because they will fall in Love with the real You. They will love the “Art” that you have created. This is the true Math.

Don’t just be someone’s statistic. Make Your number count. Let it be a standout, let it shine and enjoy the process. Express Yourself.

How does that sound? Is this true for You? I’d love to hear your thoughts.
