SMILE

In these uncertain times we may find ourselves wondering what is going on.
Schools are shut.

Working from home.

More free time.

Restrictions on going out.

You made plans, but now they have been put on hold.

Not sure what to make of it all.

How do you remain positive when there seems to be chaos all around?
Here are a few things that I have been doing to stay focused, I SMILE.

S– Start a gratitude journal or continue writing in your journal.
Write down each day, two things you are grateful for. This will shift your focus and allows you to see that there is always something to be grateful for. You can do this exercise with your children. Members of your family. Call a friend and share your gratitude.

M– Mediate on positive affirmations.

Recite a positive quote in the morning. Think about what it means to you at this time. Share your quote with someone. This is a great exercise because it can transform the way you think and view things

I– Inject some fun into your day.

Dance to some music like no one is watching. Reconnect with old friends. Sing in the shower. Combat boredom and add some fun into your day.

L– Lend a helping hand.

Think about who you can reach out to. This will help you to focus your mind on other things. There are people that need your support. Be that person that extends a lending hand.
I am offering FREE one-hour coaching sessions for individuals who need to refocus and take action. Schedule your call with me today.

E– Enjoy the down time.

We may never get this time again. What is that thing, or in my case the things that you have not got around to do? Don’t overexert yourself. Take one day at a time.

Here are a list of some of the things that I am doing:

  • Decluttering the house, one space at a time.
  • Enrolled onto some free courses.
  • Working on new offers for my business
  • Spending more quality time with family

Reconnect with the things that you have been too busy for.

Remain positive and don’t forget to SMILE.

Share this with someone who you feel may benefit from hearing these tips.

What strategies are you using to remain positive in these uncertain times?

FOUR BENEFITS FOR PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT

It is approaching the end of 2018 already.

At this time of year, I like to reflect.

Self-reflecting helps you to look at what you have carried out so far.

Thought provoking questioning goes round and round in my head.

These are some of the questions I have asked myself over the last few weeks.

Image result for question mark

What have I accomplished?

What have I not accomplished?

How can I do things differently to produce different results?

What else do I want to work on?

How will I go about doing that?

How will I navigate the challenges?

Personal development helps you to make improvements in your life.

Creating an action plan is all part of the personal development process.

Remember personal development is a lifelong process.

Four benefits to personal development.

  1. You will be able to make crystal clear goals
  2. You will be motivated
  3. You will have a better work-life balance
  4. It will improve your prospects

What areas do you want to work on?

Do you have a personal development plan?

Why not work on it TODAY!

INSPIRATION.

Inspiration starts from WITHIN.
That JOYOUS moment of thoughts that manage to hit from the DEEP.
Just deep enough for your thoughts to TRANSPIRE from the depths to a REALITY.
Those precious thoughts that TRANSPIRE to INSPIRE.
Whether it be in the unconscious moments or whilst wide awake,
It is more than a burning passion to more than make it happen.

You wake up and it’s there, you go to sleep and it the thought it still there.

Giving up is an option we can CHOOSE.
Though in the mist of it all you can dwell on it or OPEN DOORS.

STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE.

STRIVE FOR EXCELLENCE, NOT PERFECTION

Do not put obstacles in the way of your progress.

Strive to be the best you can be.

Sometimes we do get it wrong, and that’s ok.

As long as you learn from your mistakes.

In everything you do, ensure you strive for excellence.

In the words of Colin Powell… Perfectionists have to win to keep high self-esteem. Pursuers of excellence can finish second and still feel good about themselves.

As you go through your day, remember…

Strive for excellence, NOT perfection.

GREAT NEWS.

I would like to take this opportunity to share with my fellow bloggers some GREAT NEWS.

Have you ever been so surprised that you are lost for words?

Growing up it was hard to accept praise and kind words from others.

I guess that was because I lacked confidence, and was crippled with low self-esteem.

As I got older, I knew that I could not remain the same.

I was not living to my true potential. Have you heard they saying? There is greatness inside you?

Is there? I thought. I had to learn how to unleash the greatness and live a life of purpose and meaning.

Two things have happened this week which has taken me by surprise.

My husband said, accept the positive things that people are saying to you, and embrace it.

The first thing, I came home from work and I saw a letter on the piano addressed to me.

There was no stamp. This was a personally hand delivered letter.

I was very curious.

I preceded to open the letter. It read Open Doors…

It was a two page letter of how they really enjoyed the book, and they hope that others will enjoy it and feel motivated to walk through the doors of opportunities.
Wow, how nice of this individual to write such lovely words.

At the end of the letter, there was no name. They stated that they want to remain anonymous. I really want to thank that individual for taking the time out to write such kind words.

Also, I found out that I have been nominated for Author of colour. What? Me? Really? I had to read it again. Yes, my name was on the list to my surprise.

BEXLIVE Enterprise and Community Awards Gala.

They have nominated me for this award.
