Those Who Believe!

We all have thoughts of a better life. But why do some move confidently ahead with powerful momentum while others hesitate and stall? There are many components to success however effectively managing the inevitable self-doubt is where enormous progress lies. Think about this for a moment – what if you could live each day working with people you like, doing the work you like in the way you like? And where belief was a tool to make this a reality. As an Australian and NZ Thought Leaders Partner I help clever people be commercially smart by teaching them to think, sell and deliver. The success of the curriculum is proven. But I also share my thoughts on belief, as sometimes even thought leaders get the blues, and start to wonder if anyone will care or listen to what they know. Although self-doubt is common, managing this is a critical factor in progressing from white to black belt. There is a common transition period from self-doubt to belief and it’s neither necessary nor smart to walk that path alone. As a Thought Leaders Mentor I hold the belief for thought leaders – until the evidence and their self-belief show up for the party!…

Create a Success Picture!

Writing down what you want is a powerful and respected success tip however just the words on their own don’t always deliver the desired result. Creating pictures to compliment the words are where extraordinary results lie. There’s a lot of truth to the saying a picture is worth a thousand words as a picture creates a deep connection – it evokes an emotion and a pull towards the desired outcome. And the great thing is that this feeling remains long after the written word is read or spoken. Creating pictures of what we want – in advance, allows us to be in success well before we actually become a success. This fun tool not only fast tracks our achievements but makes the journey all the more fulfilling. For those who have reached a target or a goal and felt surprisingly unfulfilled and lacking motivation, who often repeat this same roller coaster routine for a lifetime may find success pictures offer a smoother ride.
 
I have used success pictures for over two decades to influence my business and life, as I know the written word with the picture is the most effective winning combination. It gives me greater attachment and meaning to everything I do.
 
Living and feeling success in advance means you…

Definition Of Success!

What is your definition of success? Think about those who have financial success and money for all the things they desire. Money certainly does bring some life satisfaction but it is not a guarantee of fulfillment. I’ve come across too many people who have lost sight of what they truly value as a result of chasing the almighty dollar. Women who juggle so much at home and at work often share their challenges of: • working long hours with few results • having too little personal time • not having enough time with the kids, partner, special friends and family • so much of their spare time is taken up with chores, and • their guilt or exhaustion when there is time to relax. To me, the definition of success is living life according to your values. Those women who strive, everyday, to have both achievement and fulfilment at work and at home are to be supported, encouraged and thanked. Last Saturday was International Women’s Day and I wrote something special to mark this occasion. Dedicated to those who INSPIRE! To all of those women who do and inspire, Who help us feel better and make us go higher! To…

Growing Pains Of Change!

As we set out to create the life we want, why does change sometimes seem so difficult? Given there are no guarantees that change will be positive (or even possible!) self-doubt and fear can creep in and convince us to bury our ideas. A decision to avoid change is a decision to impede our growth. To be a leader of change takes conviction, commitment and courage. We face loneliness as we disrupt the status quo. We recognise that we have invested our time and resources in habits that do not now support us. But often, the hard and painful changes – the growing pains – are the link to our greatest rewards.
 
We may think a change is necessary when we are no longer satisfied with the returns that were once present. However, before we leap in and toss out our routines, job, partner, house, friends and family we need to stop and be clear about what to change. Before we change our external environment, it’s best to look at the internal environment, as that may be all that needs a tweak or a shift in focus. Ignore the internal environment and there may be a lifetime of time and energy spent navigating external changes without growth….
