Who Said It Was Going To Be Easy.

All things at first appear difficult. Chinese proverb.

Whatever your dreams or aspirations, whether they are personal or professional, it’s always good to remind yourself that nothing you do in life that has any real value ever comes easy. There always seems to be something…

It’s at those “something times” that you need to work especially hard at staying positive. Draw up a targeted list.

Mindful of the fact that if there is something you want, if it’s not written down, it’s not a goal. It is only a wish.

Hang out with positive people. Step up your exercise regime. Eat right. Sleep right. Regularly write out your thoughts and objectives. Make a note of the progress you are making – and what you still need to do.

All things at first appear difficult, sometimes even impossible. But if you’re being honest and doing the work, the future and success (what ever you’re doing, however you’re measuring it) will arrive on schedule.

There will be days when you wonder how you are going to make it all happen. It won’t be easy.

But, hey!

Who ever said it was going to be easy.

A MOMENT OF REFLECTION: Have you found yourself wondering if, perhaps, there is more you could be doing? Something more meaningful and engaging? Or closer to the point, something that more reflects who YOU have grown into over the years? Need some help getting there? Perhaps I could be of assistance.

Keep Evolving

Throw your dreams into space like a kite and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country. Anais Nin.

Wherever you are on your journey, there are no yesterdays. Keep focused on today for what you do today will, to a large extent, determine what your future looks like.

It’s always about your attitude.

And your courage to keep learning and evolving.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

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

Another Chance To Get It Right!

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

There’s a new year knocking on the door.

In spite of the cynics and pessimists, there are good things going on all around us and amazing initiatives in the works.

All over the globe, there are people like you, thoughtfully doing their best everyday for themselves and others, refusing to give into the greed, lies, fake news and all the social media madness.

They are special, these people.

In spite of it all, they have made an active choice to stand up what for they believe in and, to that end, continue to work towards a better world.

Not blindly, but rather with a hard-earned experience and unfailing optimism, they embrace the new year and celebrate another chance to get it right.

Hmm..

A Timeless Message This Christmas

christmas-spirit-drew-simmie

It has not been an easy year and 2024 promises only more changes, challenges and turbulent times. No one knows how it will all go. It will be what it will be.

But as always, we hope for the best knowing that hope is the oxygen of the human spirit.

However or wherever greetings and good wishes are expressed at this time of year, or in whatever language, as the old year winds down and the new year beckons, the message is as universal and timeless as the message in this medieval Celtic blessing:

May peace and plenty be the first to lift the latch on your door, and happiness be guided to your home by the candle of Christmas.

In the New Year, may your right hand always be stretched out in friendship and never in want.

I hope to see you back here in January

Everyday Counts

the-future-is-coming-at-sixty-minutes-per-hour

It isn’t easy these days to hold on to your dreams. At every turn negativity and pessimism rear their ugly heads. The world appears to be breaking into two groups. One is sure that we are all going to hell in a hand basket so don’t bother. The other says no, no no…..the future is bright if only we’re open to the new opportunities and changes that beckon.

It was always thus. No great work or extraordinary accomplishment in any field of endeavour has ever come without courage and hard work.

Whatever your dream, in order to ‘have,’ you must first ‘do’ and in order to ‘do,’ you must ‘be.’

Take action. You know what to do.

There are only 24 hours in a day. Use them wisely.

Everyday counts.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay connected. 

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