Choose your tribe

Each tribe has certain characteristics — a cultural identity that makes it unique. These are determined by the beliefs, attitudes and behaviours of its members. Consider: Are you currently part of a tribe? Is the culture right for you? Are you and the tribe a good fit? Does your current tribe inspire you? In the words of Eckhart Tolle, “A group of people coming together in a state of presence generates a collective energy field of great intensity.” Take the True Believer tribe for example, it has certain characteristics and expresses its cultural identity in many ways. True Believer tribes have the following characteristics that make them unique. They: 1.  Show vision and purpose – their why and their what are aligned 2.  Have belief 3.  Display conviction 4.  Commit to their values 5.  Expire the old stuff 6.  Undress their ambition 7.  Feel success in advance 8.  Have an excuse free culture 9.  Expect setbacks 10. Have a growth mindset 11. Accept that non-believers are part of the journey 12. Come together for learning, support, accountability, contribution and friendship 13. Increase consciousness within themselves and others 14. Have no regrets 15. Create success masterpieces! And like any tribe, those within it are at…

How to create a more peaceful planet

1. A smile Have you ever walked along and had a stranger smile at you? We think: “Do I know them?”, “Why are they smiling at me?”, “I didn’t smile back, maybe I should have!” A smile we receive makes us feel good. An authentic smile radiates warmth that says we are open. I have known a smile to repair strained marriages, create new relationships and turn average working relationships into strong ones — bonding over a simple smile. When we smile at someone we are seen as: •    more approachable and open to communication •    more attractive and likeable •    more sociable. 2. A kind word  Sometimes the tension between two people is so strong that meaningful communication has ceased. A kind word shows an openness to communicate and that you care. There is always something kind to say. 3. A caring ear It’s time to listen. A caring ear demonstrates a willingness to hear another point of view. If we want to be understood, we need first to understand. It takes one person to decide to ‘break the ice’, and there is no better way than a smile, a kind word or a caring ear — it may…

Focus on the vision

Once we discover how much time is wasted on thoughts of what has happened to us or to others in the past we can consciously focus on our vision. But we are often fixated on an issue or an event that is in the past but is still consuming our thoughts. Expire the old stuff and focus on today and your vision for the future. Take a moment to consider: What do you constantly worry about? Who do you complain about? What event from the past do you always think or talk about? This can be a heavy load to carry. There’s nothing to be ashamed of in admitting that you are caught up. We all go through difficult times — it’s great to realise that we can take responsibility for our lives and move on. Four ways to move the focus from the past to a vision for the future are: 1. Consider what poor quality thoughts are stemming from an issue you are caught up in 2. Accept whether this situation can or can’t be changed 3. Choose to unhook those poor quality thoughts 4. Focus and take action towards making your vision a reality. By changing focus…

Build a better relationship with non-believers

Sometimes we can wrongly identify non-believers. We can be too quick to judge others through their words or actions or through lack of words or inaction. We label them as a non-believer when in fact with a little bit of understanding and effort we can build better relationships with those who we thought were non-believers. Have you ever complained that something is missing in your life? Do you feel that you are not receiving what you want or what you believe you deserve? Or that someone has been ungrateful, disrespectful, disloyal, unkind, unloving or unaffectionate? Of course — we all have. We might call these people non-believers. But the fact is that it is important to be aware that most often what you are receiving actually parallels what you are giving. Don’t expect to receive anything that you are not prepared to give yourself. Or to put it another way — expect back what you give out. First give what you want to receive: To receive gratitude, first give gratitude. To receive respect, first be respectful. To receive loyalty, first be loyal. To receive kindness, first show kindness. To receive love, first give love. And the converse: To receive no gratitude,…

Stop wasting time

One of the major differences between those who succeed and those who don’t is that the former know how. They have learnt to be productive. Life becomes a lot simpler when you know how. Without learning to be productive, you are likely to have a bunch of things you want but never quite get. Being productive increases your motivation as you begin to see the results. Learning how to commit with productivity gets us across the finish line. The most common reason we give for not being productive and not getting things done is, “I don’t have time”. The moment we give a reason and justify why we think, say or do what we do, we hinder the opportunity for change. When we stop giving reasons and start taking responsibility in every minute and every moment then life gets a whole lot better! So what’s your reason for not having time? The statement “I don’t have time” is everywhere — everybody says it at some point. It’s the reason for not getting the things done that matter — like exercise, healthy eating, quality time with loved ones, relaxation, self development and great results at work. What we could say is “I don’t have time for the less important tasks that add…
