Our lives right now are made up of a multiple of everyday decisions and choices. Look at where you’re at, it is because of the decisions and choices you made previously. Look at the decisions you are making each moment of every day, there is a lot. Are you happy with the decisions you are making? Are you owning the decisions you are making? Think about it, you might even be struggling with a big decision right now……..but hold yourself accountable to making that decision.
I read recently in the wonderful book “Think and Grow Rich” by Napolean Hill that highly successful people have this in common – they decide quickly and change slowly….simmer that one for a moment!!
Is it time for you to make the decision? I believe it is, that is why you are reading this.
Thank you for being here, thank you and have a decisive day.
Now that I have swapped rainy Scotland for Sunny Dubai for a while, I sit here in my new home reflecting on the decisions and choices I made that took me here.
When the opportunity came about a couple of months ago, my mindset was strong, positive and open to change. It simply just felt right at the time and when the decision was made to go it was like the Universe opened up and encouraged me along the way.
I went out for a walk on my own last night and stayed out for almost 5 hours, I was enjoying each present moment and felt happy, content and free. I was experiencing life in the moment, in a city I had never been to before and I felt no fear, it was like this was just meant to be.
So whether I stay here for a long time or a short time, I guess time will tell. Right now I feel that this one step will lead me to greatness, a greatness from within where fear has no home.
Remember it’s the decisions that you make everyday in your life that creates your path for tomorrow. What will your tomorrow look like? One thing I do know is that my tomorrow will be hot and sunny.
My friend shared some very simple words of wisdom with me a few weeks ago, he told me to keep an open mind when thinking about my career development. I took those words on board when I was looking at other career opportunities because a lot of my skills are very much transferable. This thinking has now led me on to pastures new and I move out to Dubai at the end of next month to take on a new challenge.
So cast your net wide and challenge some of those limiting beliefs that may just be keeping you away from an opportunity that is truly meant for you.
See the world as an open book and write in it, the words, that you want to read.
At the beginning of every month I pose a question for you to answer and I also provide you with my own answer. Below is this month’s question:
What does a fulfilling life mean for you?
A fulfilling life for me is being able to do everyday what I am happy doing and in doing that making other people happy along the way and helping them achieve their vision, where I can. There are many specifics to this but ultimately the specifics relate to how I want to feel, moment to moment. So for example, lately I’ve been thinking of doing some work in Dubai and I have had a few skype calls with the Managing Director of a company out there to see if we are both “fit for purpose”. Ultimately I am thinking about will this work give me the life fulfilment I am looking for – because the way I see it “success without fulfilment is a failure” (Tony Robbins).
So I think it is important to be successful in life but please make sure that it offers you fulfilment too and by answering this question it may help you with your next step in life.
