Care on a deeper level

We work hard to influence others in business. But it doesn’t have to be hard. You would be surprised at how big an impact you can make by just caring for people on a deeper level, by having compassion for their problems and then getting on with solving them. Here’s my tip to those in business: Save money on fancy marketing campaigns and start connecting with people on a level others won’t. Most have got the formula wrong and this is why fulfilment levels for many are at an all time low. You don’t have to cast your net wide to have great impact on this planet. If you want to build a unique, sustainable and profitable business that stands out, is fulfilling, that gets you and your team jumping out of bed every day – build better relationships through trust by simply solving others problems. There are many components to success in business and solving others problems is essential. With social media and email such a large part of communicating, we are not creating deeper connections. This is why we need to regularly unplug and just communicate with real live human beings. Yes I mean face-to-face. We need to…

An unstoppable life force

There is no easy way to reach greater purpose and fulfilment, but finding your why brings fewer bumps in the road and more enjoyable scenery. Without having your why and what aligned and without the powers of belief, conviction and commitment to drive you, your travels may lead to a dead end. For many, the first question is how? How do we create a picture of extraordinary business and life success? But is how really the first question? How is actually the second question. The first question should be why? Because having a compelling reason — having clarity around what you love, what you treasure and what is most important to you — is a massive step towards living a meaningful life. Our true values become our why. Once you have your why it’s about living that — making sure your why and your what are aligned. Have you ever lost the connection between your why and the what? When life is good they are all in alignment running in parallel paths. When there is a connection life rocks. But when your why separates from your what — when what you are doing and why you are doing it separate — then problems appear. Have you ever had them separate? It’s pretty painful when they do. Living with greater purpose and fulfilment is about keeping the why and what aligned. For True Believers a strong why is like…

Reveal the authentic you

Being authentic is a very attractive quality but sharing our true selves can leave us feeling exposed. It takes commitment and courage to be genuine. My advice is to embrace your uniqueness, take a risk, stand out and be the ‘real deal’! Why do we hide? For some, it’s easier and safer to put up a façade. Consciously or unconsciously we can try to live up to others’ expectations — whether those expectations actually exist or not. Comparing ourselves to others and copying them is a no win situation. In trying to be like others we lose our authenticity and become a counterfeit copy. And remember an imitation is never as valuable as the real thing. Those who walk their own path are believable, trustworthy and stand out which in a world of sameness and fitting is priceless! Here are some tips to be true to you: 1. Embrace your uniqueness — love you — warts and all! 2. Don’t hide — live life to the fullest! 3. Take a risk — be courageous and stop playing it safe! 4. Stand out — don’t fit in with others’ expectations! 5. Be the real deal — live your core values everyday!…

Trust yourself

When it comes to success there is no shortage of advice for climbing the ladder towards all that you want. However I believe there is one element of the success journey that has a big impact. Trust is an essential and powerful ingredient for our belief and success momentum. There can be a gap between making a decision, taking action and arriving at your vision or destination. What often sits in this gap is trust or a lack of trust. Lack of trust can bring doubt and paralysis. 1. How many times have we given advice to someone who has asked for our help and yet they question, they doubt and consequently don’t take action? 2. How many times have we done that — appointed an advisor or simply asked for advice, made the decision to invest time and dollars and we still don’t take action? It’s often not labeled as such, and other reasons are often given, but when we seek advice and we don’t take action it can be a lack of trust. Bind together all your learning with relentless execution by: * Trusting the decision you have made * Trusting in the process and do the work * Trusting in the…

Tipping points rock!

An issue or a series of changes that become significant enough to cause a large impact defines a tipping point. Many in their lives will escape these critical points and remain content without much change. For some though, these tipping points, although often painful, can create the greatest positive transformations. Our lives can be: Uneventful – constant and steady, with little opportunity for growth Eventful – varied and changing, with much opportunity for growth. And although at times I have craved constant and steady, I know that some of the greatest accomplishments and progress come from the events that shake us enough to cause a tip toward positive change. Think about those events throughout your life that had considerable impact – those major events that rocked your world – in a good or not so good way. These may be related to your health, to important relationships or even your wealth. Often these critical points hold considerable pain that can wake us up to the truth we have been ignoring and force us to make a few overdue decisions. Tipping points are common, just not talked about a lot. What we do in these challenging times is crucial to our…
