Year after year I find more and more individuals saying to me that they were still waiting for the warm temperatures to arrive one more time before the snow comes. In many ways these individuals did not have a very positive outlook on the arrival of the winter season.

Why Positive Thinking Doesnt Work!

There was someone I used to work with who, well aware of their tendency to look at the negative side of things, used to constantly tell themselves to "think more positively". This was said with such a feeling of desperation that I just knew that not only would they NOT think positively, they would probably go even further into negative thinking.

At work, at home or wherever, this can be a great time, if you let it.

You Can't Get to the Pinnacle in Life If You're Stuck at the Bottom
When you view your life from the lens of the past, what it does is to put you in a mentally stagnant frame of mind, perhaps without even knowing it, in which you are not looking ahead or planning for a new or better future. The past cannot help you, as the learning you needed already occurred, and what will help you evolve is ahead of you. If you ever find yourself feeling stuck in reverse, wishing you could learn to look ahead, or unsure how to develop a strategy for mapping out the purpose of your life, then perhaps what you'll read can help you begin to change gears and move ahead.

How To Feel Good Often, For No Other Reason Than The Feeling Itself
How often do you feel good, for no other reason than to experience the feelings alone? How do you create these good feelings? Do you listen to music? Exercise? Spend time with those you love or something else? I realise I'm being particular about my questions because I want you to connect with those pleasant emotions. Some people feel guilty because others might be in pain or suffering.

What You Silently Say And Do, Is More Important Than What You Externally Communicate
What are your innermost thoughts? Are they empowering or disempowering you? If your thoughts are negative, have you tried examining the root cause? In this article, I wish to propose what we silently say to ourselves, determines our reality. It's no surprise, many people spend time fixated on negative self-talk. Not just negative self-talk about themselves, but negative self-talk about others or situations. Whether or not you believe thoughts manifest into reality, what we dwell upon will find its way into our lives if we are unconscious to them.

3 Key Steps to Identify Your Core Desire
If you want to achieve success in any area of your life then there is one very basic and powerful way to do this. It is easy to understand and is fundamental to your nature. This is the way that people in all walks of life have achieved success from the beginning of time. It is the building block upon which all success is the built and the rocket fuel that powers it. To accomplish any success in life, you must identify accurately what it is that you hunger for, thirst for and long for. What is your core desire?

Your Point Of Focus - Is It Helping You Or Hindering You? Here Are 6 Tips
Your point of focus is either helping you or hindering you. We live in an energetic universe and it's not neutral, it is also a participative universe.Every single thought that you have, and especially the underlying energetic state associated with that thought, is influencing your life. It's either helping you or hindering you. Your internal energetic states, your external behaviours, and therefore your results in life, are the direct result of your point of focus. Over time, what you focus your mind on becomes your reality.

The Luck Factor - The Power Of Expectation
A significant component of the power of any success strategy lies in the expectation that you will achieve your goal or objective. Whatever you expect - of yourself, your career, your relationships, your life - sets the limit of what is possible for you. Henry Ford once said: "If you believe that you can do a thing, or if you believe you cannot, in either case, you are right." We invariably rise to the limits of our own expectations in life.

Bring on a Positive 2021!
If 2020 has taught us anything it's that life can be unpredictable and we can't take anything for granted. Of course, the high street and many businesses were already facing tough times before coronavirus, but those challenges couldn't have prepared us for this year and the global pandemic. Having the mindset to bring on a positive 2021 means being receptive to new ideas, suggestions and ways of doing business.

Why It's Important To Be INTROSPECTIVE?
We each have a choice, to, either, let circumstances, and conditions, determine, our best course of action, or, to try, to be the best, we might be, consistently! If one chooses, the second option, it's very important, to be, INTROSPECTIVE! Rather than, accepting, things, as they may, appear, and permitting, good - enough, to be pervasive, and invasive, into one's thought - processes, only, when, each of us, take the time, and make the effort, to give ourself, a check - up, from the neck - up, will this self - improvement, become more possible, and viable!

Why We Need To Use Our MINDS To Overcome Our Fears?
Groucho Marx is often credited with saying, It's a matter of mind over matter. If you don't have a mind, it doesn't matter. While, Groucho, certainly, made that statement, with the intention of being humorous/ funny, a closer examination indicates, there is more, than a little, truth/ logic, in those words!

You Will Only Be Your Best If You Have FAITH!
If, you don't feel, you deserve to be, the best, you can, possibly, become, how could you, ever get, to where, you say, you hope to reach? The reality is, you will only be your personal best, when/ if, you truly, have a large degree, of FAITH, in your abilities, ideas, and self - worth! After, more than four decades of conducting personal development seminars, and trainings, I have come, to strongly, feel, there is usually a direct correlation, between how we view, ourself, and how we perform, and proceed, through life!

Happy Lockdown Birthday!
I'm guessing that by now many of us will have had some experience of a lockdown birthday due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Whilst it may not have been a special decade birthday or one which warranted especial attention, under normal circumstances we'd have had our birthday marked with a modicum of fuss and recognition. But now, how to celebrate a lockdown birthday?

Boost Your Autumn Mood
Autumn is usually the season when we start to hibernate a little, cosy down as the evenings draw in and spend more time indoors. After all the restrictions of the past year, many of us are anticipating the dark nights of autumn and the prospect of further lockdowns with dread. How can we boost our autumn mood?

Ever Ask Yourself If You're Good Enough?
How often do you berate yourself, feel that you've fallen short, not achieved what you set out to do or done as much as others in your orbit? A 2020 survey of 2000 adults by a weight loss company has found that we criticize ourselves six times a week; personally I think that number is on the low side!

Finish Your Sentences in a Positive Way
I've been reflecting on how we process our thoughts and feelings, the way we allow our sentences to finish. How often do we close with, 'it's not fair', 'I'm fed up', 'why does it keep happening to me?', but then sigh and leave it at that? Rather than remaining stuck at that point why not instead learn to motivate your approach and finish each sentence positively?

Can You Resolve a Fight? Is It Possible? Will the Other Party Meet You Halfway?
Sometimes we find ourselves in a pickle and have no clue why the situation is so nasty. Is it then possible to try to work at resolving the issue? Or does it come across that you are always playing the victim card and putting the onus on the other person? Take time to think things over before you try to resolve a fight. It may or may not be your fault. Work on your words before being in the company of people who are out to get you. Once you have that in order, you will be able to cite your points.

The Life Sentence: Reality
We all love to win, but who loves what happens before they know how to win? Working on yourself, "failing up", "all of it going down", we all must start somewhere. Let us get real about it all then: The mountain top is the mountain top, but that is only momentary when we reach it. Reality is a whole lot of work in between the mountain top celebrations.

The Half-Full Half-Empty Glass Syndrome!
For the last few months, the waves of negative vibes are rising as worryingly as the COVID virus. Reasons for this are not far to seek. In the wake of the 'new normal' forced upon humanity by the killer virus people are getting deprived of things they always loved to do...

The Killer Still At Large... Don't Be Callous!
We must learn from this to be compassionate to any loss of lives on our Planet Earth, and never to be callous. The killer virus can infect anybody and can stalk anybody irrespective of religion/region/riches/ethnicity/age, and its low fatality rate does not at all ensure our safety and longevity. Now onward you must learn to think of humanity and live for humanity...

Patience, Understanding, Tolerance, Discipline, Thought, Control (PUTDTC)
We all must live with full tact, consciousness, and work/play ethic, with work first and then play. I get that there are many factors we must live with to be successful at anything, but without good tact, good consciousness and good ethics, the other factors are nothing.

The Great Flick Off
What travels faster than the speed of light and spreads quicker than a virus? Fear. It's the thought that counts. For me, it's something like this. I'm not paranoid about getting hit by a car when I leave the house, but I'm not going to go out and stand in front of one.

How Are You Coping As Lockdown Restrictions Ease?
How have you found these past few weeks of lockdown? It may be that the weeks have seemed like a lifetime and many of us have been finding the loneliness and isolation a real struggle. Now that those restrictions are easing how are you coping with lockdown? Are you ready to revert back to 'normal' or do you need a little time to decide what you want, to readjust and regain your trust in the outside world?

Anger: Cleansing Squall or Hurricane?
Anger is the emotional energy within each of us that rises up when something needs to change. If you act on the need to create change, your anger can be channeled effectively; but it's not redirected to something effective, your frustration will build, sometimes to hurricane force. Anger that is allowed to get out of control is as destructive as a hurricane, but anger that is expressed in healthy ways can "clear the air" just as a mild rainstorm does.

How to Find Joy in a Job You No Longer Enjoy or Simply Tolerate
Without question, the business world has been changed and "business as usual" is no longer the case, and it may likely never be again. For those who are fortunate to still have gainful employment, the change in responsibilities has created a new focus on how work is performed. Those who are essential workers must guard their lives in a manner unlike anything they could have imagined. Those who made a transition from working in an office environment to becoming remote employees may now find themselves feeling a sense of performing in isolation. One of the challenges for becoming a remote employee is the lack of interactions and camaraderie available in a physical office environment. This is an especially difficult learning curve for those who were used to working in an open office environment and had the sounds of activity ever present during the workday. Now at home, the only aspect of the job each day to focus upon is the required tasks. There are no diversions, unless there is some type of web meeting, conference call, or traditional call.

Public Politeness
How do you feel when you walk into a public rest room and there are papers all over the floor, unflushed toilets, and wet toilet seats? If you're a woman, you're probably disgusted-men tend to be less reactive to it. However, men-what about discourteous drivers?

The Power of Politeness
For quite a while now, we've heard many public figures, like Rush Limbaugh and comedian Bill Maher express scorn about people who are politically correct. Maher even gave his show the very funny title "Politically Incorrect." Terms like "the PC police" were used to laugh at people who were perhaps a bit strident about defending the rights of small groups of people.

Are There Signs Your Career Stalled? It's Time for a Mindset Tune-Up
You've started your job and worked hard in your career, and yet for some reason you are no longer feeling a sense of fulfillment any longer. It may seem to you the harder you work, the less you are being recognized for your work, or you are summarized in your performance reviews by short sentences of how you have failed, rather than how you have succeeded. The work you enjoy has now reached a point where you are tolerating it as you need the income, or perhaps you do not foresee a future with the company you are working for as you are not appreciated or noticed. The longer you find yourself feeling unfulfilled, unappreciated, or unnoticed in or for your performance at work, you are going to reach a point in which your entire career may seem as if it has been stalled. If your present employer doesn't willingly acknowledge you as an employee, or at least the person you report to directly, how will your career ever advance? What's the point of developing career goals if you are not moving forward along?

Overcoming the Mistakes of Others
Mistakes happen and are a part of life. Some disastrous mistakes have happened in history. One huge mistake was the incarceration into the American style concentration camps of nearly 120,000 persons of Japanese heritage during World War II. Life can very difficult for them, and these innocent persons had to overcome the mistakes made by others. Keeping a positive attitude and working hard can help overome the consequences of the mistakes of other people or even oneself.

A New Year and a Positive New You
Certain times of the year can prompt us to review our lives. It may be a new year, an anniversary, a significant birthday that prompts us to pause awhile and reflect on where we are, on what we've done with our lives and what we'd like our next steps to be. For some this could be a pleasurable few moments of reflection, but for others this can result in an, 'is this it?' response. Let's look at starting a new year with a positive new you.

It's then we start to realise that it's okay not to be liked by everyone.

3 Instinctive Thoughts You Must Stop to Discover Your True Potential
When you want to start a new project or begin work on a new goal, perhaps for something related to your job, is your first natural reaction to think you are capable and ready to get started? As an educator and career coach, I've found the natural reaction for most people is one of questions and doubt. The natural instinctive thoughts are related to fear and questions about capability and capacity. When these instinctive thoughts begin, it sets the stage for feeling a sense of being limited and at risk for failure. Rather than working from a sense of empowerment and working towards the true potential a person has to learn, when new tasks prompt developmental growth, a person remains stuck in doubt. Yet if you can be on alert for instinctual patterns of self-doubt, it is possible to create a new set of empowering thoughts.
