Communicating from the heart

November 10, 2019

It might be fair to suggest we are always communicating from the heart. After all, what value is there in any other form of communication?

That said, to underline the importance of communicating from the heart, let’s explore a few of the benefits we gain when we do engage in this practice.

Benefits of communicating from the heart.

1) Our words speak for us, with authenticity.

2) There is no dissonance between our intentions and our messages.

3) We invite others to communicate with us in a similar fashion, leading to open connections.

Undoubtedly, there are other advantages to communicating from the heart. If you’d like to join the conversation here with your input, don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.

In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘Communicating from the heart’ post and please feel free to like/share it.

Kindest regards.

Building resilience on a daily basis

November 7, 2019

Life teaches us many things but one of the key lessons we should possibly take on board is that of building resilience on a daily basis.

According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, the adjective ‘Resilient’ refers to a person or animal being “able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions”.

With challenges turning up to test our resolve and determination to reach our goals it is easy to appreciate the need for building resilience on a daily basis. And as it is never clear how much resilience we will need to have stored up, topping it up every day is not a bad habit to acquire.

It could be argued our resilience is like a muscle that develops with use. If this is the case, each setback might be looked at as a workout for our ‘building resilience on a daily basis’ efforts.

Trusting we are capable of dealing with whatever comes our way derives also from those activities regarding building resilience on a daily basis.

Before getting back to building your resilience, let me thank you for taking the time to read this ‘Building resilience on a daily basis’ post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Winning despite being wary

October 31, 2019

Ideally, our actions spring from pondered plans leaving little or no room for doubts to creep into the picture. Perhaps success is the result of a tried and tested endeavour yet, in all probability, winning despite being wary is often the reality of the situation.

Winning despite being wary may be interpreted as taking two steps forward with an eye out for the necessity of a possible shuffle to the side. The peak of our achievement might be clear before us but not always are we able to reach it by moving in a straight line.

Caution or at least awareness of the need for taking alternative routes could help us to navigate around the dramas of modern life. Schedules created with an element of flexibility can withstand expected unexpected issues.

Winning despite being wary is, once again, a way of reaching our objectives. And it is fair to imagine the lessons we learn as we progress along the way turn out to be valid input for future assignments and the like.

To explore the idea of winning despite being wary as part of a coaching conversation, please get in contact.

Right now, thanks for connecting here and for reading this ‘Winning despite being wary’ post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Heart Poems On Success

October 29, 2019

Daily we strive to achieve this or that. We focus efforts to take us a step nearer to our desired goals. According to the Oxford Dictionary of English, success is “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose”.

Celebrating this important factor of what it means to be human, it felt right to ponder success in the form of poetry.

Individually, we know what success means to us. Regardless of our age, work status or general outlook on life, we will have experienced moments of success. It is this feeling of contentment, satisfaction or even relief Heart Poems On Success attempts to capture in the form of heart poems.

Instead of setting out the poems in alphabetical order, I have left them in the order I wrote them to better reflect the flow of my thinking.

Heart Poems On Success begins with an introductory piece, ‘What Is Success?’ and closes with ‘One Final Thought’. In between, you have the opportunity to explore success through a wide-ranging offering of words.

Additionally, with this book, you have the opportunity to:

a) Read heartfelt words related to success;

b) Engage with success from a variety of perspectives.

Despite spending considerable time in the creative pipeline, this collection of thirty original poems is now available to you. Ideally, it will provide you with one, some, or all of the following: material for reflection, motivation to continue on your journey of success and enjoyment. If it accomplishes any of these, I will consider it ‘a success.’

So, without taking up more of your time, let me wish you a successful read!

Brian.

Seeing success before us

October 24, 2019

Being clear about what we wish to achieve and knowing why we want what we want are crucial elements of seeing success before us.

Having clarity regarding these points permits us to make decisions aligned with our specific objectives rather than according to the whims of the day or the input of others.

Seeing success before us is also a great motivator for those instances we are required to face challenges and setbacks. In a sense, by seeing success before us we have a guiding light through testing times.

Similarly, seeing success before us gives us a tangible target to aim for in all our endeavours. It keeps our efforts focused on what is important to us and offers input in terms of how effective our input is moment by moment.

Other considerations concerning seeing success before us are no doubt equally worthy of reflection. To share your ideas on the issue of seeing success before us, please leave a comment below.

Kindest regards.

Doing what needs to be done

October 17, 2019

We are all probably facing numerous outstanding tasks, some of our choosing and others not so, yet doing what needs to be done is a necessary part of achieving anything.

In certain instances, our burdens, chores, jobs or whatever we decide to call them, can be delegated. And a few items may even be cancelled if we deem them no longer crucial to reaching our goals.

But then other things remain before us and require our input.

Procrastinating, delaying the time we get around to doing what needs to be done, unfortunately, does not permit us to escape the inevitable ‘moment of action’.

Jumping in and just doing what needs to be done is another option.

How we manage the issue of doing what needs to be done is, quite rightly, a personal matter. Our approach will, ideally, best suit our mindset concerning commitments, work and life in general.

In any case, and regardless of how we go about doing what needs to be done, let me thank you for finding time in your schedule today to read this post.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

Clearing up before starting again

October 13, 2019

Putting aside issues concerning overall cleanliness, we can read the idea of ‘clearing up before starting again’ as getting ourselves ready for a new venture and suchlike.

In many instances, we need to physically and mentally let go of past experiences before being able to move forward. Holding onto items no-longer valid hinders our ability to fully embrace anything else. Clearing up before starting again suggests a certain continuousness in the process of striving forward.

Perhaps this is the case as we are most likely constantly beginning things, completing them and then clearing up before starting again. Of course, it is hoped each phase adds value to the next so our efforts take us up rather than merely around in circles.

Many of us will be able to appreciate the positive sensation associated with a ‘fresh start’. Having the proverbial desk free of clutter gives us space to envisage what is to be. It is then up to us to bring into being the vision but that’s another matter.

Thanks for taking the time to read this post today. To share your input on the question of clearing up before starting again, please leave a comment below.
