Being ourselves here, there and everywhere

January 3, 2019

So, the new year is in progress, bringing another chance for us to go about being ourselves here, there and everywhere.

With social media an integral element of life for many of us nowadays, the idea that we are anything less than ourselves is perhaps strange. Still, ensuring we provide a consistency of message – a way of being ourselves here, there and everywhere – is a personal task for each of us.

Values are transmitted through actions and yet words also play their part. Likewise, being authentic with our online followers, besides those we interact with beyond the digital world, is crucial to us being ourselves here, there and everywhere.

The ease of putting the notion of being ourselves here, there and everywhere into practice is linked to our perception of society. If lies and falsehoods make up our world, it is difficult to keep ‘the dirt from our shoes’. Yet when honesty is the name of the game, we too can let our true self shine.

To explore how coaching could help you as you attempt to live your potential, please get in touch so we can talk.

For now, thanks for connecting and for reading this ‘Being ourselves here, there and everywhere’ post.

Brian.

Letting our music play

September 16, 2018

Sheets of music

It doesn’t matter whether we are musicians or not, letting our music play here refers to the idea of freeing ourselves from any limiting beliefs, doubts or fears impeding us from living our potential.

In certain instances, letting our music play might include releasing the negative mindset we have bought into concerning our abilities. Of course, there will be some things we are not very good at right now – probably these are activities for whatever reason we have no interest or need in attempting.

Let’s not forget our success to date, our achievements plus the aspects of our character and life people compliment us on. These are examples of us letting our music play. And as we have already done it we can do it again!

Pushing the proverbial button, to what extent do we hold back from letting our music play because we feel, consciously or subconsciously, the world is not ready to hear it? Are we suggesting it is too powerful for those around us, therefore, remain silent rather than frighten or offend people near and dear to us?

With so much noise already surrounding us the idea of silence is an attractive one. Nevertheless, without letting our music play are we not doing ourselves and others a great disservice?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on the issue of letting our music play, so please feel free to leave a comment below.

Following our chosen path

August 5, 2018

Following a chosen path

Carrying on from the previous post here, ‘Where will the journey lead us?’, we can spend a few minutes pondering what it means to us to be following our chosen path.

In the past, promotion or the lack of it was intertwined with corporate politics inside organizations and institutions. Setting aside the idea of ‘a job for life’ or ‘a single career spanning a lifetime’, we are now free to embrace the benefits associated with the personal responsibility of following our chosen path.

Being in charge of our destiny, in this respect, means we have few excuses not to work constantly to our potential. And in this manner, we are making ourselves available for whatever opportunities await us, even those as yet unknown to us as we go about following our chosen path.

If you’d like to share your thoughts on the issue of following our chosen path, please leave a comment below.

Kindest regards.

Brian.

More Heart Poems Captured From Dreams

March 16, 2017

Ebook cover

Following the publication of Heart Poems Captured From Dreams, it felt right to continue along the poetry path. As an expression of ideas, reflections and general musings, More Heart Poems Captured From Dreams indeed brings more ‘heart poems captured from dreams’ into being.

Captured by a dream we might find sleep difficult. Captured by a dream the day could offer us too few hours to achieve all we want for the sake of reaching our objective.

To borrow some lines from Heart Poems Captured From Dreams: “The words set out here were captured from dreams. In certain instances, the lines arrived complete. On other occasions, nagging fragments forced me to sit and finish the thought.”

Rather than producing a traditional self-help book along the lines of How to deliver your potential successfully on the stage of work, the format used in More Heart Poems Captured From Dreams, as in Heart Poems Captured From Dreams, lends itself to a more open and abstract creation. Nevertheless, as a support throughout the challenges and opportunities life presents, poems are valid.

Whether read from start to finish or dipped into every now and then, it is hoped More Heart Poems Captured From Dreams provides some nourishment for the mind and food for the heart. With this book, you will get the opportunity to:

a) Explore a random set of words and ideas;
b) Ponder your reaction to the poems;
c) Apply any new thinking in your life.

I hope More Heart Poems Captured From Dreams becomes a catalyst for further reflection and renewed enthusiasm. 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 the compendium of ideas arranged, the themes of development, potential and joy become clear. As you are here, let me thank you for your presence and wish you Happy Reading!

Brian.

November 24, 2016

Ebook info

 

 

You are perfect as you are. However, over the course of a typical workday it is easy to forget this under the stress of meeting the needs of clients, colleagues and other stakeholders. Rather than attempting to fix you, How to deliver your potential successfully on the stage of work was written with the aim of sharing everyday coaching tips to help you as you go about giving your best, regardless of what the task involves or where it occurs.

Divided into bite-sized chunks, How to deliver your potential successfully on the stage of work brings together ideas associated with the stage for the sake of ensuring your potential is the star of the show on a daily basis. As with any assignment, the delivery of your potential represents more than what is experienced by the audience or beneficiary of your work.

What is visible once the proverbial curtain has been raised is the fruit of much effort, consisting of initial assessments, detailed preparation and precise practice, geared to offering your best possible performance. And then being able to repeat this as necessary.

From the preparatory phase of any project, to the feedback and learning opportunities deriving from post-performance reflection, the giving of your best is achieved not by luck, but through a systematic use of tried, tested and learnable skills.

Beginning with an exploration of the roles you are expected to undertake as part of your job description, to an examination of what is needed to ensure your presence ‘on stage’ represents the true you, these and other aspects of your daily performance are covered in the opening chapters.

Input concerning preparation for the delivering of your potential is then dealt with, leading to the moment of execution. To complete How to deliver your potential successfully on the stage of work, key points regarding the learning available post-performance in the form of feedback – uplifting when full of praise and useful if critical – are set out in the concluding chapter.

Throughout How to deliver your potential successfully on the stage of work questions are asked. Accordingly, it is advisable to read this self-help book with a notebook and pen or pencil to hand to capture reflections, thoughts and answers.

Similar to any form of professional and personal development material, the value of How to deliver your potential successfully on the stage of work is found in its adaptation and application to your specific needs on your stage of work.

How to deliver your potential successfully on the stage of work is available now at the Amazon Kindle Store.
