Everything Counts

What you think you become. What you feel you attract. What you imagine you create. Buddha.

we-become-what-we-think-2-drew-simmie

It takes a lifetime to make a life. Finding one’s way isn’t easy, especially today, in the throes of the pandemic. Sorting out the ‘wheat from the chafe’, what’s truly important from what isn’t, requires many personal values and attributes, including clarity, self-esteem, and courage. Especially the latter.

Everything flows from courage. It’s the foundation upon which all our other actions stem.

Each of us creates our own experiences by our thoughts, feelings and actions… painting a picture, if you will, of ourselves and how we can be the best version of ourselves that we can be.

Everything we think, say and do, every move we make, is creating our future success. Our thoughts and deeds create who we become.

There are no short cuts, no magic potions to a balanced life; however you measure it.

It takes hard work, honesty… aware, always, of the idea that everything counts.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  

I look forwqrd to seeing you back here again soon.

A Poem for Today

I can’t go back to yesterday, because I was a different person thenLewis Carroll.

your-quiet-centre

Last week I was reminded that April is National Poetry Month in Canada and the USA. It’s a month dedicated to the spirit of that special group of writers who, in poetic verse, pour forth their ideas, thoughts and feelings about various issues affecting us all, at one time or another. In my research, I came across a poem that I thought was especially meaningful today.

It’s all about resilience and courage. None of us can go back to who we were before the pandemic. As we continue our daily battle to conquer the Covid-19 virus, the challenge is how to best adapt to the new realities the pandemic is serving up. Here’s his poem:

A Center

You must hold your quiet centre, where you do what only you can do.

If others call you a maniac or a fool, just let them wag their tongues.

If some praise your perseverance, don’t feel too happy about it – only solitude is a lasting friend.

You must hold your distant centre.

Don’t move even if earth and heaven quake.

If others think you are insignificant, that’s because you haven’t held on long enough.

As long as you stay put year after year, eventually you will find a world beginning to revolve around you.

Written by Ha Jin. A Chinese-American poet and novelist.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I hope to see you back here again soon.

Hold True To Yourself

Flock_of_Seagulls_800

Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken. Oscar Wilde.

In the journey of life, being aware of who you are and what you are really all about holds the key to living on purpose; if only you will pay attention.

Hold true to yourself. Only you gets to decide how you live your life. Especially now, when we’re beginning to close in on the end of the pandemic. Things are going to be different.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.

I hope to see you here again soon.

Build A Successful Business

Your premium brand had better be delivering something special or it’s not going to get the business. Warren Buffett.

create-your-own-brand-drew-simmie

Building a successful business takes imagination and hard work. There are always challenges, of course, and competitors snapping at your heels.

In today’s business environment just having a new app or a good idea isn’t enough.

Creating a company or a brand is like creating a reputation for a person. You must earn it. By doing the right things well, rather than following the crowd and doing things right. Day after day, after day, after day.

In our ever-changing society, authenticity is a key component of a successful marketing strategy.

The most powerful and enduring brands are built from the heart. They are real and sustainable.

Their foundations are stronger because they are built not only with a slick ad campaign but with the strength of the human spirit.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  

I hope to see you back here soon.

Sharing In Difficult Times

He who divides and shares is left with the best share. Mexican Proverb.

What is time if we don’t share it?

What is passion if we don’t share it?

What is experience if we don’t share it?

What is knowledge if we don’t share it?

What is love if we don’t share it?

What, indeed?

Hmmm… something to think about in these difficult times.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.

I hope to see you back here soon.
