Self Discovery & what it means for You

Around the age of 40, your perspective on Life will probably change.

For some [good] reason your thoughts turn to the 2nd half of your life and how you can continue/start to enjoy or improve your lot.

Questions will more than likely tug much harder at you. After all, you do want to discover what your future may hold, don’t you?

Less is More … or is it?

I’ll get straight to the point.
Life’s too short to be spending your time playing the wrong game.
The Game of Life demands your full attention. Every waking moment will be dedicated toward enjoying what your life gives you.
You simply don’t have ”time on your hands”.
Because there’s never too much time to live, to love, to create, to play your best game.
There’s only too much time for regret
And that’s not the way you should be spending your time.Too much time
Regretting what You haven’t done is a poor place to be.
It’s never too late to turn that around. Starting Today, Now even, fill your day with Value.
Create marvellous experiences. Create wonderful conversations and relationships. Create a terrific Life.
That’s why You are here.

A Very Short Story about Goals

Many say that writing down your goals adds commitment [to the goal]

I’m not going to argue with that however I’ve seen many

who have done just that and they simply spend their time just looking at them every day.

Regardless of whether you write them down or not, if the goal lacks sufficient meaning,

then you’re wasting your time. Writing it down won’t save You.Once you set them

Your best commitment is making sure that the goal means enough [for You personally] and you follow through by taking the action to get the goal achieved.

Plan your attack. Visualise yourself achieving the goal.

So, if you have a goal [or goals], make yourself happy
by doing something about it [them].

Short Story No 8 [Energy. Action. Purpose. Conversation. Motivation.]

Life is for Living. Life is for doing.

So, if you are going to live your life, then grab a good hold of these 5 ingredients.

Without Purpose, without Energy it’s very difficult to take the action necessary to do what has to be done and To do what you are meant to do.

Of course you will need a healthy dose of Motivation. You may be sufficiently self motivated.

Or you may need to engage in some meaningful conversation with someone who can motivate You.

Imagine what you can achieve with the necessary energy,purpose & motivation?

Just imagine!

Take the required action and follow through on every step.

Plug into Life! … it’s waiting for You
Plug into Life

Short Story No7 “The time of your Life OR is it?”

In your life on this earth, time is finite, therefore limited.
As You know, you and I have the same amount of time available in each day.
Now I’m pretty sure that you have most of your days mapped out or allocated according to the time you have available in that day.
Your day, week, month is most likely run along the lines of a schedule. And I can see the sense in that.
Now, does your schedule include living?. In other words, is there time for living your life, in your life full of schedules?It's important to make Time

What time are you really making for your life?

It’s difficult to do. However it is what you must do.

I see ‘MyTime’/Life as being made up of a series of precious moments, namely:

Connections with myself, connection with others, family and connection with my environment.

These “precious now moments” are what I believe, are the true joys and blessings for and in, my Life. This is what we all should embrace and this is what we all should prioritise as time critical.

Easier said than done, I can hear you say. Fair enough.

It is easy to get caught up in “work” and other people’s priorities. And often it is necessary. It happens to me.

But being caught up and being consumed by … are two different ball games.

There can be a fine line here. Tread warily. By all means, do the stuff that you have to do but “switch off” and live in your day as well.

How often do people late in their lives state their regrets? Often, like:

”wish I had done this…..”, wish I had made more time for that….” etc,……..Why? Mainly because “stuff” got in the way. And they hadn’t scheduled” time to Live.

As Stephen Covey has said “Prioritise the important things not just the urgent ones.”

I suggest that You Make time for your Life.

Are you doing it Now? Or will You promise to re schedule your “schedule?

Short Story No. 6 – Can You Feel it?

You and I are feeling beings.

Your reactions, your actions, your attitudes and the way that you move through each day … is determined by how you feel.Can You Feel It?

Many unfortunately seem numbed by daily life, unaware of their surroundings or their abilities to improve themselves.

Simply going through the motions is not living.

Being aware of what life has to offer and taking action to grab your piece of it, is.

How do You feel about that?

The Art of getting it together – “The How to’s”

You have many challenges in life. Some you will overcome, some you simply will not be able to.

These latter challenges will thwart you because of either of reasons:

  1. you don’t have the skill to overcome them
  2. you don’t have the willpower to overcome them
  3. The Universe got in the way
  4. Some things are meant to be (must be that “Universe” again)
  5. You give up 

For most of us, 1. 2. & 5. are the relevant ones,  I will talk about 3. & 4. later.

If you do want to overcome your challenges, then point 1. is salvageable. People with the will to overcome obstacles will get it together.The Art of getting it Together Blog Post

You may need help, however if you have the “will” to overcome then you will seek out all options to do so. And that will set you apart from others.

‘The Art of getting it together’  emanates from your very own Willpower.

Here are two examples of stating just that:

The power of frustration … “I’ve had enough, I won’t put up with this anymore”

The power of wanting more out of your life … “I can do better”

When you decide to initiate your Willpower, You begin to turn things around.

Skills can be learned. You may not have them at the moment however someone who does have them can teach you. Or, you make the extra effort to learn them yourself. I’ve certainly been in both categories … and still am.

When you don’t have the willpower [or decide not to use it],then you are at the mercy of whatever comes your way. Some will flow with this and say “what the heck” or “I’m in the flow” (of whatever) AND some will simply get swept away (and complain immeasurably).

This is where The Universe  does  play a huge part ….. you have the power of Choice. You choose to take positive action or not. I can only suggest that you try the positive and inject some Willpower.

To give credit where it’s due, those who “give up” have in the most part, at least initially tried. They have had crack and that’s worthy.

If this is you, then more than likely your willpower has run out of steam or you have lacked support. The good news for you is that there is a glimmer of hope. In fact there is a rainbow of hope.

When you read this, do something for me. Reach out. You need a confidence boost, a shot of energy, an embrace of hope. There is someone out there who will support you through this. Reach out for the rainbow …. all the colours thereof exemplify the amount of options open to you.

Giving up is a poor option though I can understand that frustration plays huge in your life. It gets the better of me at times.

So, what is the answer?

When I have a target, goal, dream, desire that IS strong enough, emotional enough and important enough, I will work to see it through.

The time frame isn’t that important, however the “will” to get it done, is ….. because it’s that important.

You can do the same, I am sure.

Please feel free to share your thoughts here and via your favourite Social Media Channels.

You can also reach out to Me if you need some help.
