Switch Off

The age of the entrepreneur is here and the competition that once focused on being busy in the rat race has shifted to this arena. The autonomy and self satisfaction that comes from creating a business requires dedication and discipline but one of the pitfalls comes from not taking time to rest and reset. 

Previously, the overworked 9-5 er would bemoan the excessive overtime they were faced with. Now, because there are no ‘working hours’ entrepreneurs delight in declaring being on their hustle, grinding it out and crushing it. 

This is not to say that achievements do not require efforts but to be effective there needs to be time away from work to decompress.  

Doing nothing gives you something.

Fight Or Float?

Fight Or Float_.png

Sometimes even when you have commitments, circumstances will not be in your favour and people will be let down.  Even though you explain and apologise you will not be heard. It will be perceived as a personal attack and you will only realise this later on when the other party has the opportunity to be gracious yet chooses not to be. 

So what should I do? I am within my rights to go in harder and I can see that they are acting out of revenge. They were hurt and so want to hurt me back.  

It is not really working. I am very frustrated but not hurt. I want to state my case but I realise I am not dealing with reasonable people. This is a time for recalling the quotes that I liked on every meme online, being patient and forgiving because there is still the urge act otherwise.

However, this is not an indefinite act of passivity and we are fast approaching my deadline. Up until then I am breathing deeply and trusting that there is a purpose to this problem.  

If and when the time comes I will be learning to win with peace.

Let If Go

Let If Go.png

I am a person who is open to new ideas and can often see possibilities yet I do still procrastinate.
The Mavericks in society are those who start immediately and figure the kinks out along the way. I am more of an Early Adopter, which is no bad thing but there is room for growth. 

I can see how trying to reason and be assured of success has cost me in the past because I faltered and did not trust the instinct to move forward.  

The age we live in now presents so many possibilities and is moving so quickly. I am being called to take leaps and the information I need is presenting itself to me almost in confirmation that this is the way I should go. 

Despite all this there is still that little niggle, a pause.  

I am pushing through.
Without the ifs, buts and maybes I can be free to soar.

Ask For Help

Ask For Help.png

When I was young I was described as independent and my juvenile mind took the definition and went overboard with it. I took it as needing to do everything myself and decided wrongly that needing assistance was a sign of weakness.  

Over the years even when my challenges became increasingly tough I would still attempt to muddle through on my own until I had exhausted all options and then I would reach out but I would mostly be met with rejection and then still have to work it out for myself. 

What I learned is that I had not mastered the skill of asking and as a result after spending so much time building myself up to ask, I would ask the wrong person and then have to deal with the humiliation and hurt.  

I took it personally, clearly people did not want to help me and it was a show of real strength to get things done solo.

I was so wrong.

I watched in amazement the progress that others made when they were helped and as much as I wanted the same for myself, I could feel construction in my throat and body when it came to speak up. The fear of rejection outweighed my needs.

Now I see my errors. I am denying people (the right people) the opportunity to give and also not acknowledging myself. Sometimes I need to take a break and let others show their strength.

Positivity Fails

Positivity Fails.png

I have realised a potential pitfall in my desire to always look on the bright side of life. The creative in me sees the best possible outcome and while overall this is no bad thing, it has meant that on numerous occasions the red flags of reality are ignored. 

This tendency has repeated itself so many times that and I wonder why I not learned from it. Maybe on some level I enjoy the pain? 

There is a famous quote by Maya Angelou, ’When somebody shows you who they are believe them,’ that now holds a new importance for me because if I am being honest, I in every experience I knew and/or felt the truth very early on and yet  still chose to ignore it.  
This has happened in work, friendships, relationships and living situations, there has been that similar unease that I have clouded out with my rose tinted reasoning. Yes, there is always potential to be better everywhere but the facts are few care to put in the work to achieve it. 

Now it has happened one time too many. Lesson learned. Finally I hope.  I will accept what is actually in front of me and until it chooses changes itself.  

Its not always love and light.

Live The Dream

LIVE THE DREAM.png

Depending on your viewpoint we are either living in the best of times or the worst of times.  Both could be true. 

There are those who recognise the opportunities being created by advancing technology and are educating themselves in order to transform their lives. Fundamentals like the way we have been conditioned to work and earn money, even money itself, are being revolutionised to such a degree that change seems unbelievable.

But it is happening with or without your belief. Once the concepts start to make sense, possibility and excitement take over. 

There is a shift happening for sure.  

Yet this truth still is only held by the minority. The ones labelled as dreamers, unaware of ‘real’ life. 

It can feel like the world is splitting into two. Those who know and those who would not believe it anyway. Each seems crazy to the other.  

We are entering into an age where possibilities and solutions are accessible to all. Nobody can ever convince another of anything. Only transforming and demonstrating a new life will inspire others to change. 

We can all be free.

Be A Believer

Be A Believer.png

We have all experienced a time when our outlook has been challenged by others who did not see our point of view and more than likely wasted energy trying to convince them otherwise. 

Often we add pain to our frustration seeing their unwillingness to agree with us as a personal rejection and that is not always the case.  

People often think that not believing in a thing means it is not real but a thought creates. Believing in something is saying ‘Yes’ to the experience. 

Thinking this way will calm any future disagreements. That person is simply not ready and when you are next confronted about your beliefs you know that on some plane it exists.

Do you accept?

System Update

SYSTEM UPDATE.png

The start of a New Year brings into focus what we want to bring in our lives for better and what needs to go. However there will always be parts that will have to stay, the everyday and often mundane tasks that seem to take up so much time.  

Most of us use technology and are familiar with the regular updates the programmes need in order to operate faster and deal with the shifting demands. We are also a technology but when was the last time we installed our newest update? 

Are you still relying on information that was force fed to you at school when the idea of a touch screen phone would have been laughable? How relevant are the majority of your qualifications? 

There is still a lot of fear and misunderstanding surrounding technology but it is a tool available to liberate us. If we take time to learn what it can do for us.  

Similarly, updating our own systems, changing the programme, emptying the trash will help us to be highly functioning. 

Faster. Stronger. Slicker.  

Happy 2018!
