Why authenticity tops effort

October 20, 2019

Being ourselves every moment of the day is a way of living authentically and says much about our outlook on life.

Making plans aligned with our values and taking actions by following our intentions, we leave little room for anyone to doubt who we are and what we stand for.

These reasons alone, it seems fair to suggest, explain why authenticity tops effort. Of course, many times we need to do something, make an effort as it were, to realize our objectives. Yet these efforts invariably flow more smoothly when based on our authentic approach to life, work and all points in between.

Living life with authenticity as the central point of reference is a matter of making heartfelt choices. To explore your choices as part of a coaching conversation, please get in contact.

Right now, thanks for being here and for reading this ‘Why authenticity tops efforts’ post.

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.

Engaging wholly with our goal

October 10, 2019

Without engaging wholly with our goal there is little chance of us achieving it. Of course, this idea is so obvious it probably doesn’t need to be stated.

In any case, once we’ve taken the time to set down our objectives it would be silly not to go about engaging wholly with our goal.

Engaging wholly with our goal involves a variety of actions, including:

a) Prioritizing efforts designed to achieve certain objectives;

b) Being disciplined to respect our priorities;

c) Being sage enough to learn from the moments we lose direction.

Other actions are surely equally valid and, as ever, if you have a system producing the desired result you probably should continue with it.

To share your thoughts on the ideas raised here, please leave a comment below. For now, thanks for reading this ‘Engaging wholly with our goal’ post today and feel free to like/share it.

Kindest regards.

Dismissing the negativity from around us

October 6, 2019

Without judging, we always have the option of dismissing the negativity from around us. Dealing with life’s challenges is certainly tough enough as it is without having to wade through the waters of negativity.

The action of dismissing the negativity from around us could involve this series of simple steps:

1) Clarify our definitions of positivity and negativity;

2) Set personal tolerance levels concerning what we are prepared to accept;

3) Remind ourselves of the life we are striving to create;

4) Refuse to let others dictate our mindset or outlook despite their behaviour or words.

Dismissing the negativity from around us goes a long way to ensure we face daily life in, at least, a neutral manner. And if some people resent or get offended by our position, well that is their problem rather than ours, no?

What should we do now?

October 3, 2019

 

Probably, we are never faced with the question ‘What should we do now?’ as our strategy for reaching heartfelt goals is written out to offer us guidance every step of the way forward.

There might be a certain amount of flexibility built into the plan, justifying a moment of questioning ‘What should we do now?’ But the answer will be at our fingertips instantly.

When people look to us for assistance with the words ‘What should we do now?’ our input will, ideally, be based on the best interests of all concerned. Being trusted to lead others is a responsibility as well as a privilege and requires careful handling.

Or not. As ever, please feel free to share your thoughts by leaving a comment below and don’t hesitate to like/share this ‘What should we do now?’ post.

Kindest regards.

We’ve arrived at …

September 29, 2019

Referring to any journey, as much as the action of setting out can be exciting, stimulating or any number of other sensations, invariably we can’t wait to hear the announcement “We’ve arrived at …”.

The movement from A to B, C or Z, implies a new beginning, a change of scenery. Once we’ve arrived at … we have the opportunity to embrace a set of circumstances different, in all likelihood, to that which we were previously facing.

Yet we don’t have to physically move to tap into the energy the words ‘We’ve arrived at …’ bring to mind.

Each day is a clean slate. Yesterday is over, taking with it the doubts and worries we associated with it. Today we are in a position to tackle the challenges before us with a new outlook, strengthened by the experience of the day before.

If you’d like to share your input on the ideas raised here, please leave a comment below. In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘We’ve arrived at …’ post and feel free to like/share it.
