When Actions Speak Louder than Words!

action-man-nah There is one thing for sure that I know, and that is if you talk and wait, you'll end up talking more about the waiting. However, if you talk and take action, you'll feel energised, alive, and optimistic about the energy you are creating towards the target you set. Whether you get there or not does not seem to dull the senses of a good energetic, go-getting action plan. So it makes sense that we get busy right? Well, that's also if it's kinda smart busy as opposed to the old 'busy doing nothing' routine I see alot of in the corporate world.

Survive jobs that are not your first choice!

Okay! So we don’t all get to land our dream job first time round. So what do we do now? Is that it? Do you just accept your fate? Perhaps be happy with the cards you’ve been dealt? Does any of this sound familiar to you? I’m sure there are many of you out there who have felt this way. I know I certainly have. The really tough question is, How do we stay motivated and focused, even though we may be in a job that is not our first choice? The answers lie somewhere in a place known to us as maturity.

Unlock Your Real Life Potential

A few years back I created a philosophy about work and life that helped me understand why people find themselves in jobs that they have no passion for, and why there always seemed to be this urge in people to unlock their potential. I called this philosophy the discovery of natural alignment. A couple of years later I read a book by Stephen Covey called the 8th Habit, in which he described a similar model. He calls it the natural intelligences model in which he describes the link between mind, body, heart and spirit. In both our philosophies there is this underlying belief that unless you can bring the elements into alignment you will seldom reach a level of personal life satisfaction.
