Self Value

The root of how others value you is how you value yourself!

It’s no secret that actions speak louder than words. Just because you attempt one act of kindness to appeal favourable to society or employ a public hoo-ha of some sort,  it doesn’t mean that you are the star of the show.

I define values as a way of living. The way you carry yourself is base, how you respond to others is body, and the consistency of your relationship with your loved ones is whole.

The delusion of grandeur is pathetic at times, but you are not to see it. As a matter of fact, it reflects in the eyes of those that look from the outside in, therefore; steer away from the unnecessary attention, and remain simple.

Less is more, keyword is always, so, always be somebody good to become somebody great!

Avenue to success

On the 8th of September 2015, I attended the National Achievers Congress 2015 in Sydney. The event comprised of reputable and highly successful guest speakers that shared their entrepreneurial experiences and outlined tools to their success.

I listened to Michelle Bridges who had a passion for fitness since she was 14 years old, Patrick Grove that recognised an untapped demand for IT solutions in Singapore at the age of 24, Garry Robert who is now an international best selling author and publisher worth up to $100 million a year, once called an illiterate, to name a few.

Fact is, learning never ends. It’s about finding what it is you want, plan for it, set a benchmark to reach it, and persist on it. Michelle expressed the below points:

A) Your past does not define your future.
So, what are you prepared to change today?B) Resistance = Persistence.
What you resist continues to persist.C) Consistency is crucial.

Let’s touch base on Adam Markel, an American peak potential, CEO & Author. He discussed the blessings in life. The simple fact that you are healthy enough to be breathing, walking and talking makes you wealthier than most.

I found most interesting his definition of friends. He said, good friends are enablers, they say what you what you want to hear, great friends tell you what you DON’T want to hear. How lucky am I, I’ve got plenty of great friends, hmm.

Deep down, your five year old self is still embedded within. Our drive to want to have fun is consistently present, it’s the most authentic and creative part in us so we hunger for it. Though, it’s not always rosy, success comes with pain and struggle, whatever it’s personal, financial, or other. To progress one must pivot, implement small adjustments to make a big future.

He mentioned that settling is rather normal, it’s our comfort zone, a natural state of mind, one that must be shaken up. T. Harve Eker, the author of Secrets of the Millionaire Mind says “How you do anything, is how you do everything” – isn’t that true.

We are programmed to think and act a certain way, but the secret to living is giving. Ultimately, to maximize your full potential, it come down to this:

– Have a ritual: Dig the positives, even in your darkest moments.

– Invest time in you and your education to make incremental improvements.

– Build a healthy relationship with yourself and those around you, we don’t live alone.

– Create an unstoppable team: Associate with those that pull you up when you are down, lead you, guide, support and genuinely want the best for you.

Goals are our dreams with a deadline. So here’s my challenge to you, what do you want?

The notion of trust

Someone once said to me that you you’ll say yes without reservation and I’ll choose not to go without hesitation and that’s how it should go.

We discussed the nature of trust. In contradiction to the above statement it’s known that secrets are necessary for survival so this simply means that we as humans are hypocritical beings. We demand full trust but frown upon the full truth. We settle for a white lie as though it’s perfectly acceptable.

In any given relationship to love someone is one thing but to fully trust is scared to the core.

A three hour delayed flight has led an elderly couple to sit beside me and cuddle, seeking not affection but body warmth. A simple gesture leaves no doubt in my mind that it is impossible for these two not to trust each other blindly. It could be an ambiguous statement but it feels way too real not to be true.

But hey, the joke could be on me. As for the time being it’s one thing that I’ve learnt and that is trusting an airline to be on time is a relationship you wouldn’t bet on!
