Bringing our all to the task

October 27, 2019

It is probably fair to suggest bringing our all to the task we are faced with is as much a mindset as an approach to work.

Once we’ve decided to move forward with our plans, bringing our all to the task seems a pretty sensible thing to do.

We may feel caution is appropriate yet holding back from bringing our all to the task is a way of hindering our eventual success.

Putting our all into each action ensures we remain true to our objectives and life in every moment. Nobody can ever accuse us of doing things half-heartedly when we go about bringing our all to the task before us.

Any doubts about our commitment to joint-venture or activities of collaboration are likewise put to bed if we are bringing our all to the task in question. Whether it is sufficient is, of course, another matter.

Embracing happiness through each success

March 24, 2019

There are many ways in which we are able to enjoy our daily routine but embracing happiness through each success is the focus of this post today.

Ideally, we achieve results aligned to heartfelt goals so in a sense embracing happiness through each success is a natural consequence of our actions. Nevertheless, taking a few minutes to consciously celebrate the positive nature of an outcome adds additional meaning to such moments.

Without proverbially patting ourselves on the back for having successfully completed this or that, we risk devaluing the work undertaken to reach such levels of achievements.

Embracing happiness through each success is a way to acknowledge, at least to ourselves, the planning, preparation and implementation of our work for the sake of moving ourselves along the path of life.

But should we, in a similar fashion, take time to reflect on the pain caused in the event of failure? Switching the question around, why shouldn’t we access this learning opportunity created by obtaining less than desired results?

Being open to constant improvements ensures no occasions are lost to us to better ourselves. In this manner, we are never without the possibility to go about embracing happiness through each success given that we are ‘winning’ or certainly ‘learning’ all the time.

Benefits of freeing our potential

October 11, 2018

Flowers growing behind bars

The benefits of freeing our potential are most likely many. At any moment, the most relevant will be linked to our current mindset.

Focusing on the efforts we make each day to bring our best to the table of life, I think the following two are especially important benefits of freeing our potential.

1) There can be no question as to whether we are giving our all to all we do. We are living fully as we engage with the moment.

Likewise, there are no doubts as to if we could be doing more, right now our efforts represent our potential.

2) Operating in such a mode, and hoping others are doing the same, the world gets to experience the real us rather than a half-hearted version. If some folk decide we are ‘too much’ for them then that’s their choice. Playing small to please others is surely a waste of our potential.

Other benefits of freeing our potential are, as mentioned above, linked to the mindset of each of us at any moment.

To share your ideas related to the issue here, please don’t hesitate to leave a comment below.

In the meantime, thanks for reading this ‘Benefits of freeing our potential’ post.

Adding value to our daily routine

May 31, 2018

Fruit stall

Being curious, let me ponder how we could go about adding value to our daily routine. Many ideas spring to mind but, for the sake of space, three will have to do for now.

1) Be clear about the intentions behind our actions

With the clarity of intentions comes a greater focusing of subsequent activities. Understanding why we are endeavouring to achieve something makes efforts relevant and even enjoyable. On the contrary, doing things just for the sake of doing them or ‘because we have always done them’ turns routines into ruts.

2) Seek out the element of fun

Noticing the fun or funny side of a task is something we may wish to attempt, especially if we have never considered work from this perspective before. This approach can reduce the tedious aspect of chores, turning them into light-hearted ‘events’ whilst adding value to our daily routine.

3) Schedule pleasurable activities as rewards for the successful completion of daily routines

Knowing we are off to the park, the beach or the pages of a favourite novel, once we have gotten through our routines is a way of adding value and energy to our efforts. Managing our workload is key to getting things done to the best of our ability. Incentives, where appropriate, help.

As stated, there are many ways to go about adding value to our daily routine. I hope the ideas here act as a starting point for you in your efforts.

Thanks, in any case, for reading the ‘Adding value to our daily routine’ post today.

Heart Poems On Clouds. The NEW book

May 29, 2018

Clouds

Heart Poems On Clouds

“Above the clouds of the moment opportunities exist.” Brian Groves.

Just like waves, clouds are a daily presence often ignored. The heart poems in this collection, based on the transient nature of clouds, are thoughts and reflections brought together to capture something tangible from their intangibility.

We might choose to see clouds from many perspectives. At times, when dark, they could represent challenges and setbacks to our heart-desired goals. On a sunny day, we may wish for a cloud to provide shade and a little relief. No matter the moment, embracing clouds is something within our ability, even if it is only through words set out here as poems.

The potential to live life fully exists in us all. But being human, we forget this from time to time. Accordingly, this book could be read as encouragement, to us all, to be our best even on a cloudy day. I hope this collection of heart poems on clouds gives you something to ponder and, dare I say, enjoy. It was a pleasure for me to write these poems and it would be pleasing to think you find value in the words.

Clouds, whether those above us or those obscuring our clarity of thought, are a part of life. This latest offering reflects my curiosity towards how we live life, embracing or otherwise the presence of clouds.

With this book, you will get the opportunity to:
a) Connect with nature through the written word;
b) Look at thoughts created in the heart;
c) Observe ideas set out as poetry;
d) Undertake a moment of reflection;
e) Discover input relating to everyday life;
f) Seize upon any inspiring material.

Possibly this book becomes a catalyst for further reflection on what is dear to you. Though I am experienced in the field of professional and personal development, you are the expert on your life. Implementation of any new thinking will, of course, need to be undertaken by you, I cannot do it for you.

With that said, let me thank you for your presence here and wish you Happy Reading!

Brian.

Filling the gap between wanting and having

January 18, 2018

Gaps in the pavement

 

Filling the gap between wanting and having can be an endless task. With so many ‘must have’ products and services being made available every day, the task of keeping up with our wishes and desires is monumental and even maddening.

The adage of ‘wanting what you have’ may help in our efforts of filling the gap between wanting and having to optimise our actual possessions and such like.

By embracing more of what is already part of our lifestyle we might discover there is little else we actually need or indeed really want. Abundance is a mindset some folk say.

Other perspectives worth exploring, with regard to the idea of filling the gap between wanting and having, could form part of a complimentary coaching session via Skype or Google+ hangout. If you are interested in this opportunity, please get in touch.

In any case, thanks for connecting here and reading this post related to the idea of ‘filling the gap between wanting and having.’
