If you have good thoughts they will shine out of your lovely face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely – Roald Dahl

Have you ever accurately guessed someone’s personality and tendencies of being just by looking at them? They say the camera doesn’t lie, I think the face doesn’t lie. The snapshot of a camera merely captures a moment in time, where the face is frozen in a state of emotion that is predominant in that period of a person’s life. In other words, we are what we think about most of the time. If we think good thoughts of joy, giving, gratitude and love, then we are happy, generous, appreciative and content. If we think about all the things we do not have and wish to have in life, we will operate out of a space of frustration, anger, envy and greed.

By all means aim high and work hard towards your goals, be your own competition and seek to grow and improve, but also remember to be thankful of all the things that you have around you and celebrate your wins. Think good thoughts and be kind to others, and you will see and experience greater gifts in your days. Life will reveal to you abundance in everything you do.

Quote of the day -5

Dream big

Today I ask that you do not limit yourself. I ask that you let go of the fear of being different. I ask that you let go of the fear of failure to get what you want. I ask that you let go of the fear of being disappointed.

People say: ” Your goals must be realistic”. What is “realistic” anyway? Was the 4 minute mile realistic before Roger Bannister ran it? Was commercial aircrafts “realistic” before the Wright Brothers took flight for the first time? Were smart phones realistic back in the day when mobile networks had not yet existed?

Your big dreams are most likely the most compelling. They are the ones that will get you up in the morning and keep you up late at night to find a solution for. They are the ones that will set your direction of growth and fuel your desire to be better.

Whilst dreaming big is good, acting big is better. Compliment the dream with actions. Action is the bridge between dreams and reality.

Dream big, Act BIGGER.

Quote of the day -4

The best way out is always through – Robert Frost

So you have come up to a wall. 10 days into the new year and your New Years Resolution is starting to seem like a joke. Question is, 1) How badly do you want what’s on the other side? 2) Are you a quitter?

There is always a way to get what you want. There is also always a better strategy to get where you want to be. Stay clear on your desired outcome, keep focused and keep blasting through those walls.

Come on, never give up on your dreams.

The McDonalds Drive Thru model

McDonalds Drive Thru

McDonalds Drive Thru

Many of us have heard of the Law of Attraction made famous by the book/film “The Secret”. Many then decided to test it out by asking sincerely, but got disappointed instead because what they asked for did not come true. So does this mean the Law of Attraction is but a mere marketing ploy? Is there more to it than asking and believing?

At Enlightened Warrior Training Camp I was fortunate enough to spend an afternoon with Hawk Moon, a wise mentor of much zeal for life and love for people. He taught us a simple 4 step guide to getting what we want in life, and called it the McDonalds Drive Thru Model.  Just imagine a drive through order process and remembering this technique will be a breeze!

1)  Clarity when placing the order : be clear about what you are asking for. Be specific but not too rigid with the minor details

2) Move towards what you want : Take some action in the direction of what you are asking for

3) Be willing to make an exchange : Be real. Do what it takes.

4) Reach out and fully receive it : Many people expect things to be handed to them. All you need to do is to allow what you want to come to you by removing resistance and if possible, make the circumstances in favour of receiving what you have asked for

So it is no secret after all. Ask with clarity and take action to get what you want. Simples.

(Yes, until you try and do it!!)

Good luck peeps. And just because I have mentioned fast food, you don’t have to go get some. Stay away !

Life got in the way……

I would like to address my lack of presence on here in the last few months. I was tempted to explain my absence by telling a story about my move to Singapore, change of jobs, lifestyle and the stresses at work. Despite it being true that that all happened and that my days have been the busiest it has ever been, it is only correct to fess up to what is, that is my whimpy commitment to spread my learnings through writing.

Very recently I attended a 4.5 day personal development course and learnt a thing or two about integrity. Continue reading
