Hello wonderful you! It’s Youtube Tuesday and today’s original video poem is all about giving yourself a chance at achieving your dreams. Stay focussed, stay strong and keep going my friend.
May today’s video inspire you to do greater things for you. GET GOING, BELIEVE!
Take a Chance
Take a chance, on living your dream. Put in the effort, and feel supreme. Capture the spirit, from inside of you. Be determined, be open, to follow through. Your champion heart, will help you achieve. This one’s for you, get going, believe.
A very warm welcome to wonderful you. It’s Youtube Tuesday and today’s original video poem is all about bouncing back after a fall. I have always said, resilience is built in the bouncing back, not when everything is running smoothly.
Hopefully, today’s video will help to motivate and inspire you to KEEP GOING. There will always be challenges, but you are much GREATER than any challenge that comes your way – remember that.
Where Do I Fall
Where do I fall, if not at my feet? What keeps me going, after defeat? A focused forever, of what I am. A determined spirit, of “Yes I Can”. For a winning heart, is a champion mind. My faith is amazing, it is one of a kind.
Is there actually one word that would encapsulate everything that you’re all about?
Look for your ‘one’ word – can you think of it?
Even under copious amounts of caffiene, I could not think of that ‘one’ word for myself. I don’t actually think that word exists – so maybe I have to create it!
You see, when I challenged you to think of that ‘one’ word, it immediately put limits on your thinking but our thinking needs to be limitless in order to engage and change worlds.
So let’s get a little creative here. I think my newly created ‘one’ word needs to be blended into something so magnificent, you’re never going to forget it.
A bit like the stupendous word “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” from the famous Disney Movie, Mary Poppins.
There is so much POWER in our words and they can be used for the greatest good or to disempower, so please be very mindful of the words you say to yourself and to others.
I’ve got to say, one of my favourite words is “aspirational” – for some reason, that word seems to “breathe life into me”.
Another word I seem to love is “exponential”. I was first introduced to this word by Broadcaster & Global Keynote Speaker, Rene Carayol at the “The Time is Now” Leadership Conference, held in Glasgow City Centre in 2009.
“Imaginative” another wonderful word that seems to ignite my spirit.
Okay, I need more time to create ‘THEE’ one word but I think you get the moral of the story:
When you add rules, limits and boundaries to your creative thinking, you are boxing up the best of you.
Remember you are a GIFT, so special, that doesn’t need to be boxed up.
Next time you’re in a team meeting trying to come up with an innovative solution or new concept, allow your thinking to flow freely with no barriers in the way.

Even if you never ever become the BEST in your field, the fact that you actually strive to be the greatest, is what will make the difference between being ordinary or being AWESOME.
I always aim to be better today than yesterday – it might not always work out, but at least I go for it!
If I believe I AM THE GREATEST in my field, I won’t let limited thinking stand in my way of progression.
Even if, in the eyes of many, I am not the greatest, I don’t allow their thinking to have a negative affect on mine. Well, wouldn’t that be a bit BIG HEADED then? Absolutely NOT, if it is for a meaningful purpose and aligns with your core values.
Never apologise for aiming to be the BEST in your field. Never ‘dumb down’ your talents and abilities to fit into a smaller box. In my opinion, battle your way out of any boxed thinking and set yourself FREE to achieve greatness.
If you’re not aligned with the above – that’s okay – you just need to kick your way out of that box!
I see you doing AMAZING things, when you let your greatness shine through.

You make a difference by firstly focussing on changing yourself for the better and then that has a real positive effect on others around you.
I never read a personal development book until I was in my 30s and then I was super hooked on how the teachings in those books had a positive influence on my thinking and then ultimately my doing.
You’ve probably heard the term “Leaders are Readers” and I think, there is a lot of truth in that popular saying.
Do you see yourself as a Leader or someone who likes to sit back and be led?
Personally, I think there is a leader in each and everyone of us and if you feel you’re not leading right now, it’s up to you to make the self-adjustment.
A leader doesn’t benefit from being loud, over confident or bullish in their ways and if you are currently experiencing that – then you’re definitely being wrongly led!
Sometimes, and more often than not, the BEST leaders are calm, focussed, quitely confident, deep listeners, super observant and highly self-aware. Great leaders are fully engaged in each and every person they influence. These type of leaders bring out positive energy in others, empowering untapped potential, leading to significant action. In my opinion, Leaders who truly shine, blend coaching and mentoring skills with experience and wisdom.
A true leader wants to bring out the best leadership qualities in others, then stands back, to see them soar.
Enhancing your attributes in self-leadership is one magnificent way to make a difference.
Please remember – Leadership isn’t only a ‘work’ thing – it’s a LIFE thing!
