Monday Morning Wake Up Call 7/9/14

Morning,
Its been a few weeks, life has been a bit crazy which it tends to get sometimes. There has been a lot of ups and downs, with the passing of 3 dearly beloved friends and family in a 2 week period, mixed in with some amazing training that really expanded my growth and thinking & luckily helped keep me with a positive outlook in these hard time.

One of the biggest realisations I have had over the last few weeks is “Love where you’re at”. Embrace where you are right now, don’t sit there focusing on where you should be or could be or where you want to be or worry about what might happen. Love where you’re at right now in this very moment, be present in the moment and aware of everything going on around you. We all get so caught up whats happened in the past, and why we haven’t achieved what we should have because of certain people, situations or circumstances, this usually ends up causing depression of some degree. Alternately people spend a lot of their time sitting focusing on where they wish they were or worry about what might happen in the future, all this causes is anxiety, and chances are that it may never happen. Love where you’re at, you are in exactly the right place you need to be today for amazing things to happen in your future. This realisation alone has provided amazing insights for me in so many area’s of my life, and helped me embrace some fairly crappy situations recently.

Once you have embraced the present, look at what is it you really want to do with your life? Are you doing it?

One of my favourite quotes “The graveyard is the richest place on earth, because it is here that you will find all the hopes and dreams that were never fulfilled, the books that were never written, the songs that were never sung, the inventions that were never shared, the cures that were never discovered, all because someone was too afraid to take that first step, keep with the problem, or determined to carry our their dream.” ― Les Brown

This has really struck a chord recently, as there is is no point in waiting to do it tomorrow as there is no guarantee you are going to show up tomorrow to do what you want to do. So get out there and do it today, take the first steps,  and do what you love….

Have an awesome week

Karen Thompson Walker: What fear can teach us

Karen Thompson Walker: What fear can teach us

Imagine you’re a shipwrecked sailor adrift in the enormous Pacific. You can choose one of three directions and save yourself and your shipmates — but each choice comes with a fearful consequence too. How do you choose? In telling the story of the whaleship Essex, novelist Karen Thompson Walker shows how fear propels imagination, as it forces us to imagine the possible futures and how to cope with them.

From the EG conference: Productivity guru Tim Ferriss’ fun, encouraging anecdotes show how one simple question — “What’s the worst that could happen?” — is all you need to learn to do anything.

Morning, How are we all?
Hope we are all pumped for an awesome week….
Some interesting discussions last week around what is preventing us from moving forwards? From taking action? From being our best?

What stops us moving forwards is fear. It can destroy our psychology, and it can immobilise us from taking action. We all experience fear in some way during our lives. Fear of rejection, fear of love, or of losing love, fear of abandonment, of being along, or fear of success.

Fear is hardwired into all of us on some level. The secret is to use the fear and to understand it, instead of letting it run us.

So what fears do you have? Why? What is it giving you, holding on to this fear? What are you missing out on by holding on to this fear?

This week, identify what fears you have, and work out how to overcome at least one. It could be public speaking, go to your local Toastmasters club and start public speaking. Work out the steps you have to take what resources you need and get out there and do it. Ask for help if you need, but get out there and start overcoming your fears and see how much more fulfilling and exciting your life can be…
