Be a Good Listener

really_listen

Most of the successful people I’ve known are the ones who do more listening. Bernard Baruch.

There are few needs of the human heart that are greater than the need to be heard, to be understood and respected for whom we are; to have someone actually hear what we are saying.

Often, though, in our state of busyness and the desire to win, many engage in a conversation without actually hearing what the other person is saying.

Have you ever found yourself in an encounter when you are already preparing a response to the point the other person is trying to express even before they have finished speaking? I know I have.

Slow down….

Listening shows respect and regard for others.

It is only when you actually slow down and the other person realizes that you are really  paying attention to what they have to say – that real communication begins.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  As always, thank you for reading me.

I look forward to seeing you back here soon.

Stay Relevant

The future depends on what you do today. Mahatma Gandhi.

It has been a rough couple of years, challenging in so many ways.

The pandemic isn’t finished with us quite yet, but as we get beyond the worst of it, the conundrum facing many is whether to just give full throttle to their current activities or, perhaps, referencing their lockdown pledges, pause for a deep rethink about the arc of their lives.

Big thoughts, I know, but that’s what a pandemic does. As we all begin to adjust to the new realities, there isn’t a better time than now to refresh and, if necessary, repurpose.

All with the aim of staying relevant.

Be real. Do the work. Wherever you go on from here, know that you have all you need to maximize your potential, step up your life and be the best version of yourself that you can be.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.  As always, thank you for reading me.

I look forward to seeing you back here soon.

Positive Self Talk Can Do It!

Promise yourself  that you will talk health, happiness and prosperity as often as possible. John Wooden.

positive-talk-drew-simmie-2

Success doesn’t magically land in your lap. There are a number of factors that determine your level of success. Among the many, top achievers know that positive self-talk has a huge bearing on their success.

Never underestimate the strong belief you have in yourself and the value of positive self-talk. Constantly remind yourself that underpinning all your work, your belief system can carry the day.

Put another way, if you don’t believe you can do it, you can’t. If you believe you can,  you can.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

I hope to see you back here soon. As always, thank you for reading me.

Sharing With Others In Anxious Times

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

sharing-troubled-times

What is time if we don’t share it?

What is gratitude 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 is compassion if we don’t share it?

When you share with others, you’ll be amazed at what comes back to you.

Hmmm… something to reflect upon in anxious times.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected.

I hope to see you back here soon.
