Have courage to live your success masterpiece

In order to live with belief, conviction and commitment we must have courage. We must have the courage to create our own masterpiece — not the masterpiece others expect of us. It has to be our own frame and it’s never too late to create a new picture. No matter what your age or experience, it’s never too late to find a way to spend your days the way you want to. You’ve got to admire those who see something they want and put aside all constraints to go for it – with a decision, action and a bit of courage. But as we walk forward there are sometimes tough times as others get used to our decisions. The tough times don’t have to last, but the tough people do. Overcoming life’s challenges and curve balls provides enormous strength and resilience. And each time you fuel up with courage and drive forward you gain tools and wisdom to take you through to the next opportunity. Clever people seek to understand what they fear. They know that on the other side of facing their fear lies spectacular growth and results. Rather than living in fear, learn what you are fearful of and take…

Productivity focus

A valuable productivity tip is to create something once and use it often – like a checklist. It may take a bit of time up front BUT we save lots of time later. The create once and use often strategy saves time, energy, headspace and money plus reduces stress and allows you to get the things done that matter. Here’s why! Checklists for routine tasks mean you don’t have to start at the beginning every time wasting precious time. We reduce our ‘to do’ lists to one off tasks not repeat tasks. By being organised with good systems in place we can reduce stress and maintain order over chaos. In How To Have It All I’ve listed 16 checklists ideas that will help to increase productivity. The simplest way to set up a checklists is on an excel spreadsheet and place them where you can use them easily. For example; the shopping checklist in your wallet, the packing checklist in your bedroom, the best recipe checklist in the pantry, the children’s activities checklist in their rooms and the work targets and results checklist in the office. Or choose one of the many productivity apps. The next step is to revise the checklists as the need arises….

The 4 D’s that matter

Self-doubt can paralyse and hold us back from finding fulfillment. The surest way to manage self-doubt is to move forward and take action despite our negative mindset. Believe it’s possible, allow self-doubt to exist and act anyway. There are four steps to help cure mental paralysis – these are the 4 D’s that matter: 1. DECIDE what you want 2. Act with DISCIPLINE regardless of self-doubt 3. Keep moving in the DIRECTION aligned with your values 4. Focus on your DESTINATION daily! Even when we know what we want stress can sometimes overwhelm us and “freeze” our ability to achieve. As we push through our fear a new mental state can emerge bringing with it greater conviction and DETERMINATION – there are many D’s that matter. It’s not self-belief that’s essential to success – it’s having the courage to act in the face of self-doubt until self-belief turns up. Self-belief is a by-product of taking action! Every Minute Counts and You Can Have It All! ®

Courage to create

True Believers are courageous — they leave the world a better place due to the way they live their life and the way they influence others lives. When I was at a tipping point in 2011 it was one of the toughest periods of my life. The day I couldn’t get out of bed I knew something was seriously wrong. Hiding what was wrong had begun to seriously affect me. I was paralysed by fear. I feared mostly how much I would disappoint others by making the changes I needed to make. I was fearful that those that mattered to me would reject me. I felt guilty wishing for a life greater than the life I already had. I was scared that walking away from a 12-year career and family business was walking away from everything I had worked hard for – high income, relationships and legacy. I was scared that if I made the decision to leave, with no money coming in, we would lose the investments we had worked hard to build up over two decades. For that period in time I had become a non-believer. Even with all of my previous belief, conviction and commitment that had…
