Channel the characteristics of the eagle

FLY 2

Be like the eagle in all your endeavours:

  • Utilise your vision, hone in on your goal and go after what you seek.
  • Be fearless and dominant in pursuit of your desired outcome.
  • Risk more and expect more; challenging, yourself to fight for what you really want!
  • Claim your territory and be protective of it. In other words, achieving your goal, and work to sustain it!
  • Be the best leader you can be. Inspiring and nurturing others along the way

Above all be confident in who you are, in who you were made to be and the power you hold. The eagle never waivers, about the intrinsic core of who it is and neither should you!

Soar and keep soaring 🙂

Don’t forgot about “you”

It’s been 23 days since I last shared or connected. Being absent online, gave me the opportunity to invest time in myself. To reflect and identify with the path i’m currently on.

I think it is important to be able to switch off, as and when you need it. As we are first and foremost beholden to ourselves. Our mental and physical well-being.

In my time of reflecting, I read a couple of amazing blog pieces that deepenly inspired me. One very important question I had to ask myself, was: what is my expectation for this season of my life”

Am I planting, sowing or reaping? Is my plan well thought out? And do I know how I’ll indentify when I’ve achieved it.

I have encouraged many over the years to explore these questions. To be clear on the direction and decisions made. How easy it is to forgot to heed your own advice!

It is important to refuel as you give out and encourage others, as you can easily self neglect.

In the end it wasn’t difficult to answer those questions, because the vision is there. It doesn’t change, it just gets buried in everyday life sometimes.

The key is selfcare. Taking time out to dream, give your vision center stage. Review the goals and refuel.

The question is: are you due some TLC?

The glue gun saga and the power of motivation

As a mum of a creative and free spirited 9 year old, I have long learnt that nothing is safe in my house. Old dresses can be transformed into three piece outfits overnight, beautiful cards reserved for little notes to inspire others, become papier-mâché’ and even my sanitary napkin once became a shoe. I kid you not! As proof below you will find one transformed into a unicorn/person.

Having illustrated the essence of my daughter’s character, I must say, I wouldn’t wish her any different. She is motivated by her creativity, which in turn makes her resourceful and witty.

Not only is my daughter motivated by her creativity, she is also massively motivated by money. I recently shared a video via Facebook, relaying my excitement at having bought a Selfie Stick. It was purchased on a Sunday for £9.99, and used to film my excitement and left in my room to recover.

As I got ready for work Monday morning I noticed my selfie stick had a shine to it. On closer inspection, I found it had been loving wrapped in gold tape. As I started to unravel the tape, I realised the selfie stick was broken. The little clever clogs!

I promptly rushed into my daughters room, voiced my unhappiness and told her she would need to buy it back from her Christmas money. That was the worst news ever! She chanted the whole morning “I am not using my money to buy it back” and I was adamant, she would.

I have to confess, she did not. Miss little clever clogs, on return from school used the glue gun she received for Christmas to glue the selfie stick back to together! Her response “told you I wouldn’t buy it back”. Forget the cheekiness, in that moment I was so proud!

Motivated by her creativity and a desire not to spend her money, she resolved to find a resolution to the predicament she found herself in.

It reminded me that at times we can find ourselves in unintended circumstances, where we are presented with limited options or no options at all; effectively stuck between a rock and a hard place.

In sharing this story I want to remind you, that you do not have to be trapped. Let your motivation be your light, your guide, your resolve to finding the right solution for your situation, and not to the detriment of your money, your creativity, your values, your relationship or any other factor. But staying true to who you are

I encourage you as always to find your “why”, and hold on to it in challenging times. Persevere and find creative resolutions. Be confident in your goals, in your actions and keep striving.

If you find this a struggle, here are some helpful tips:

Reflect on what motivates you and put steps in place to keep yourself motivated, this may include:

  1. Writing down 1-2 sentences that affirm your “why”
  2. Repeating it to yourself everyday
  3. Taking 5 mins out of every day to visualise your vision
  4. Buddying up with a like-minded person

Monday motivation – Focus, not follow

focus-on-your-vision-dan-ryland8865751704928889340.jpg

Don’t be caught up in the hum of others people’s plan or vision

You have thought about where you want to be at this point in your life, you may have even made plans

You have thought about the future and everything in the now is a stepping stone towards that dream

Your vision is not the work of another’s plan and you will not attain if by weaving your way into ” their exciting thing”

Support others, but focus on your path in life and what is right for you. Everything else is a distraction

Make way for new beginnings

There is an indescribably feeling when you make a decision to do something new, especially when it’s something you’ve put off time and time again! ⠀

But of all the emotions, excitement is top. It feels great and secretly you are proud that you taken the step you needed to. You are buzzing with the atmosphere of change ⠀

If this is you, I applaud you. I am routing and praying for you. If you are on your journey to commit to that first step. I am still routing and praying for you. ⠀

Because I believe you can get there ⠀
