From non-believer to True Believer

Those who were once non-believers can go forward to leave wonderful ripples, when they identify the non-believer in themselves and work on that first. I have much passion, compassion and expertise in helping others find their inner strength — to believe in themselves to walk forward with courage, with self-love and unconditional love for others. To help others feel empowered, to have a voice and to commit to making their very best contribution is what lights me up! I help others to become True Believers, to move up from the times they were non-believers in their own lives and to live with the non-believer in others. The irony of my expertise is that I spent many decades looking outside myself for peace — for others to believe in me — scared to speak out and always looking for recognition and approval. Many times I became a non-believer and was paralysed by the non-believer in myself and in others. I searched and searched — even though for most part I had achieved extraordinary results and success — I couldn’t find true peace. I couldn’t find fulfillment – constantly searching and moving up and down the ladder from non-believer to True Believer….

Stay out of drama

Being in drama about what has gone on in the past can prevent you from moving forward. Being in drama uses up time and energy and can also prevent the growth required. By staying out of drama we can increase our productivity in a massive way — giving us many more effective hours in our day. Drama that causes us to bring up the past or worry over the future in either our thoughts, conversation and actions may include: a relationship an event a situation a job. How much of your day is taken up with the following? blaming gossiping judging criticising complaining feeling sorry for yourself worrying trying to solve others problems without addressing your own. Imagine all the minutes of drama that add up to hours and hours every day. It’s not just the effect the drama has on us but also the effect it has on others around us. All of these negative behaviours of playing persecutor, victim or rescuer, keep us focused on what has gone on before or what may be in the future. People who live in drama often do so to avoid what is really going on right now in their own lives. By focusing on others…

Pave a clear path

De-cluttering is an essential productivity tool. Remove the clutter so that you can see the path ahead. Live with clutter and you live with obstacles. Highly productive people de-clutter quickly emotionally, psychologically and physically. It’s time to pave the way to success by spring-cleaning the clutter in your life. When heading in a valued direction, you need to clear the path. Like a pregnant woman who knows the baby is coming and spring-cleans the house, we too need to go through every area of life to get sorted to make life easier. As we move in a value based direction we need to make sure that the path is as smooth as possible and that the environment is right. Getting really organised is paramount. When there is an obstacle in your way, you have to go around it, climb over it, go under it or move it — all productivity suckers. We need to identify the physical and mental clutter and remove it once and for all. Once the clutter is out of mind and sight we can think, see and act more clearly. Have you had clutter in your life and said, “I’ll get to that someday?” Well today is…

Commit to taking responsibility

The power of personal promise and commitment are the foundations of fulfilment. When we learn to reject our excuses we then commit to a life that rocks! There are three parts to commitment: Responsibility  — no excuses Clarity  — clear focus Productivity — do what matters It’s the responsibility piece we have to get right first. We sometimes work hard at finding clarity and being productive without really taking responsibility and often wonder why we fail. Responsibility is the essential building block that keeps our commitment strong. My biggest cringe is excuses. That’s for excuses I make and that others make too. I guess you might say I have an ‘excuse radar’ that I use on myself and others all the time. This radar helps me identify excuses so they don’t sabotage attempts at success. Many decide what they want in life but then seem to break into two groups: 1. Those who decide, but don’t take responsibility 2. Those who decide, then commit and take responsibility It’s not about working harder or longer (as we all know where that leaves us); it’s about committing to the life you decide you want. Commit to taking responsibility — reject excuses. Commit to staying focused — find clarity. Commit…

Get in the game

Time stops for no one — there are a finite number of days left. With that in mind the questions are – are you where you want to be? How prepared are you to take a risk to get in the game and create the life you want? How much of your time is spent on thinking or talking about what you want and what you should be doing rather than actually doing it? Are you all thought and talk and no action? Do you: Have thoughts of success without taking action? Have lots of coffee dates and meetings to talk about what you intend to do but nothing happens? Use language like “I’m going to lose weight”, “I’m going to get organised”, “I’m going to have my best year yet” or “I wish I could live by the water, I wish I had a partner and I wish I had more money”. These common phrases should ring alarm bells — alarms that say stop procrastinating. Success does leave clues. Successful people think carefully first and then quickly get on with it. After over two decades in sales and leadership, I have observed and mentored many. Winning people: are active, not passive don’t waste…
