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.

Letting our true self shine

November 3, 2019

The idea of accomplishing anything should, perhaps, be evaluated by considering how we can go about letting our true self shine.

Achieving success without letting our true self shine is a sure-fire way of obtaining a hollow victory at best. On the contrary, by putting authenticity at the heart of our endeavours we ensure we are connecting wholly with each step along the road to our objective.

And by letting our true self shine in all our undertakings we are giving the green light, so to speak, to others to behave similarly.

Of course, these ideas are not new and no doubt this is not the first time you’ve come across them. To share your thoughts on the issue of ‘Letting our true self shine’, please leave a comment below.

For now, thanks for stopping here to read this ‘Letting our true self shine’ post.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
