Language is important.

Replace (I can’t) with (I won’t) and see how that changes things.

One comes from a place of hopelessness

The other

From a place of empowerment,

One relinquishes ownership and the other reclaims it,

One outsources responsibility and the other assumes it

One is passive and dismissive

The other is active and engaging.

It’s a complete switch in perspective.

Reality is, your time is limited, so understanding value and what’s important will allow you to establish a set of priorities.

Then the challenge is keeping those priorities in order

Because when someone tells you they don’t have time, they are essentially saying is that it’s not a priority

So next time you find yourself saying (I can’t), check yourself!

Because, you can – you just don’t want to or aren’t willing enough to try.

  • Taking your second chance
    It’s pointless, because history will always be confined to history. Instead it may be time to look yourself in the mirror, at the risk of not liking what you see. Because getting it right, means being honest with yourself. It comes with the brutality of having to confront your own demons, And being able and willing to take the hits. So take your second chance. Don’t look back in anger, maintain the hope And be determined to do things a little different.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
  • Ahead of the game
    It’s easy to play life on the back foot Always playing defence. Always waiting, always passive, always reactive.
