Stay in Doing Mode

Stay in Doing Mode

I read a lot, actually I read a huge amount of self-development books and I really do love them and I do get a lot from them BUT for me, where I get my GREATEST SUCCESS is when I stay in “DOING” mode, that’s me and that’s the way I like it.

I’m at my best when I am in action woman role, so this is where I’ll stay for a while.  The positives are outstanding for me and the ripple effects get me amazing results.

So I ask you today to focus on “doing” more of what will get you better results in your life for the long term, throw in some quick wins and you’re on your way.

Progress will motivate your “doing” mind – keep at it, keep the momentum going and don’t you stop until you get there….but please make sure you know where “there” is – that’s a very important part.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Surfing the Waves of Happiness

Surfing the Waves of Happiness

Every second of your life is filled with temporary moments that may test you, uplift you and even make your heart sing.  Embrace these moments for indeed they are just temporary.  If it’s a moment that’s getting you down, use it to help you grow or if it’s a moment that is making you smile, treasure it.  Temporary moments, good or bad are just that – temporary.  The bad stuff will pass, yet so will the good stuff.  Life keeps moving on, tick-tick-tock.  Make your moments count and grow from them.

Everything is temporary – the tough stuff will pass and soon you’ll be surfing the waves of happiness again.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Stay Strong – Stronger Than Ever

Stay Strong – Stronger Than Ever

In the past, I was always known as the “go to” girl in places where I worked, to write a wee funny poem about someone.  I would be asked to write poems for work colleagues leaving, celebrating their 50th birthday or expecting twins!!  I really really loved it.  I could write a poem very quickly and very easily and I always gave it just the right sentiment.  As the years went on I started writing poems that would encourage people to turn their life around for the better. A lot of the times, I was talking to myself if I was having a tough day – it would definitely make me feel better.

Stay Strong Poem

A few years ago my brother was going through a particular tough time at work, he was being made redundant and was treated very badly in the process.  My Professional background was in Human Resource Management so I helped him a lot professionally – it made the tough days a little easier for him.  After the process he was exhausted and was at a loss, he had to start looking for another job and in the middle of a recession it wasn’t easy!!

I gave my brother a little card to help him feel better and I made up a little poem for him entitled “Stay Strong” for him to read and hopefully make him feel better – it did.  Below is the poem that I wrote for my brother:

Stay Strong

Life can be tough,
the weather may be rough,
but stay strong,
find the inner strength to carry on.

You are loved, have faith, believe.
You are special, focus and achieve.
One door is closed, but many are ajar,
realise your potential, you’ll go very far.

The world is on your side,
so fill your heart with pride.
Move on up, inspire your mind,
get ready for change, you’re one of a kind.

A few years later I decided to turn some of my encouraging poems into motivational and encouraging greetings cards – I just wanted to cheer people up when they were going through low times.  I wanted to give people the opportunity to buy a card for a close friend or family member who was feeling down and that the greetings card would be heartfelt and encouraging towards that person.  Sometimes we struggle to find the words to say ourselves but a little card of encouragement can say it all for us.  It signifies that caring touch and that special bond we have with that person.

Over the last 2 years I have invested a lot of time and energy into setting up my motivational and encouraging greetings cards business and I am delighted to say that it is doing very well.  I am even more delighted to report that the “Stay Strong” greetings card, containing the original poem I wrote for my brother during his tough days, is the most popular and best selling greetings card of my 45 individual designs.

Breathing Space

Breathing Space

Life can be one big rush rush at times and before you know it you’ve landed somewhere where you maybe don’t really want to be.  It’s important to take some “time out” of your usual and sometimes manic routine, to take stock of what’s happening in your life.  Give yourself some “breathing space”, some time for you to make sure you’re on the right path for you.  Just because you’re in “automatic pilot” mode doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re in the right place for you.  It’s often the case that a lot of people spend more time planning their 2 week vacation every year than they do planning their whole lives. Spend some valuable time on the most important part and yes, that’s YOU. What’s your life plan and what are you going to do about it?

Plan well, live well, be well.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Don’t Settle

Don’t Settle

Don’t settle for an “okay” life, you deserve much better – we all do!! Although sometimes you’ve got to do the “ordinary” on a “temporary” basis to help you move forward into the “extraordinary”.

So when in the “okay” moments of life, tell yourself another story, think about how you can use your current position to take you to the next better position. Always think about how you can make it easier for yourself, make it better for yourself, make life much more happier and much more worthwhile.

Time is going to go past anyway, so do what you need to do now to get you to the next step, keep inching forward and aim for the very best – whatever that is for you.

It’s your life, go get it!!

Always focus on the solutions to your challenges and do what you need to do until you don’t need to do that anymore.

“Do what you need to do until you don’t need to do that anymore”.

Now you’ve got that one, put it into practice and you’ll see your world getting better for you – inch by inch!!

It’s your life, go get it!!

Put Yourself Out There

Time after time,
lessons come and lessons go,
let life in,
this is your show.
The waiting game,
slows down the clock,
open the door,
don’t wait for the knock.
A pro-active mind,
is prepared for the now,
planning ahead,
will answer the how.
Discover a new path,
to travel on,
where dreams of hope,
are never gone.
Explore, take charge,
and do what needs done,
put yourself out there,
and the rest will come.

 

Stand By Your Dreams

Stand By Your Dreams

For what it’s worth,
to all of you,
keep fighting for a life,
you want to come true.

Forget the worry,
and sleepless nights,
stand by your dreams,
to reach new heights.

For you are,
the happy ever after,
focus your thinking,
keep some laughter.

A tsunami storm,
can’t keep you away,
from better days,
so come what may.

Tell yourself,
I am that achiever,
stronger in challenge,
a warrior, a believer.

Take control,
master the seas,
forgive wrong pasts,
get up off your knees.

No more victim,
feel your desire,
feeding your heart,
aiming to inspire.

Encourage your soul,
and with arms open wide,
see yourself there,
succeeding with pride.

Lift Your Head High

Lift Your Head High

What’s stopping you,
from dancing in the rain?
What’s keeping you,
from moving away from the pain?
The clouds will move on,
the sunshine will appear,
uplifting your spirits,
and filling you with cheer.
Take a moment,
to treasure all you’ve got,
when you really think about it,
you have such a lot.
Open the door to life,
let the fresh air in,
don’t let the bumps on the road,
keep you from a win.
For there comes a time,
when enough is enough,
lift your head high,
and challenge the rough.
Soon you’ll be amazed,
at what you can achieve,
smile with an open heart,
and in you believe.
