Making a choice, decide who you’re going to be?

Do you believe that you can be what you choose to be…? not what someone else chooses for you to be..?

Does life feel like that?

This inspiring interview with Will Smith, highlights the choices and the visions we play with and believe in..

The book Will speaks about is ‘The Alchemist’.. Just the title itself implies some sort of magic.. but what if that magic is just the simple magic of choice.. the magic of having an open enough mind to re-examine the possibilities..

This alone could empower you to choose a life and a world for the better.. if not for greatness.

There is a beautiful inspiring phrase that I’ve heard stated in many places:

“What the mind can conceive, you can achieve.”

It’s so powerful to acknowledge that initially it all starts in the mind.. the vision you hold for yourself.. the thoughts you hold about yourself.. the future you hold for yourself..


Here’s another video that looks at this a bit deeper.. the sound quality is not so brilliant, but the content and passion is awesome..

I’ve been dumb founded, and continue to be dumb founded finding that I’m choosing to attract into my life what I have now, and I choose what I attract in the future.

But most of all.. just like you I still have a choice and the beauty of all choices are that you can only choose now.

“The past does not have to dictate your future.”

So if your lot now is not all it’s cracked up to be.. there is a way to change it for the better..

Whether it’s changes in:

  • your relationships
  • your finances
  • your personal development
  • your family life
  • your social life
  • your health
  • your spiritual well being
  • your emotional well being
  • your vocation.. or career..

Or perhaps simply having more balance and fulfillment in your life.

There is an answer.. there is a system.. a process.. where you are challenged to be greater than you are now..

One on one.. in person or on the phone.. If you want to know more send an email.


How To Not Get Smacked By A Cricket Bat When You Communicate?

Have you ever found that when you’re trying to get a point across.. it appears that you’re talking in some strange language, even foreign language that no one seems to understand.

I heard a beautiful definition of communication recently:

“All communication is the response you get, not what you think you are actually saying.”

This has really started to open up my eyes and ears..

Many a time I’ve fell into the trap of thinking that some people are just a bit dense when they can’t understand what I’m saying, …they get completely the wrong end of the stick.

But now it’s dawning on me (a light bulb moment) that it’s me that’s a bit dense.. Dense in my own self absorbtion, living in a bubble, blind to what’s in front of me.. not aware or awake to the responses I’m really getting.. Too busy focusing on what I’m saying than being aware of the response I’m getting.. and yes I’ve many a time had that cricket bat wrapped around my head.

How about you.. do you get so absorbed in what you’re saying at times.. absorbed obliviously in what you want and where you want a communication to go.. without being aware of how your words are affecting the person in front of you?

“If you don’t get the response you’re looking for, change the way you’re trying to say it.”

It’s starting to become clearer to me as I bear this in mind that it’s not the other persons responsibility to figure it out, it’s up to me to modify what I’m trying to say to fit the person I’m saying it to.

Ask the question, “what is it like to be in their shoes.. not yours..”

For me it would be damn crippling if they wear a size 5..

Try it for a laugh, I’m finding it’s making communicating much more fun and interesting..

But every now and then, when I miss the mark I’m learning to duck just that bit quicker.. 🙂
