Growth 101: So, what next?

Growth 101: So, what next?

Much time has passed since I’ve last posted. A couple months if I’m not mistaken. Why? Well I didn’t know what to write about, I wasn’t sure where to take this. I was at a blockade. I’m speaking to you honestly when I say that I’m not sure what I’m doing.

I made the big change, moving up north to Muskoka, yet I see the summer slowly winding down. The thought of then next season is something I’m not sure about. Yet, I’ve had a hell of a time.

I want to be somewhere where I can continue to grow, is this the place for me, who knows. What I know is that the people I’ve met and friends that I’ve made will be treasured for a lifetime.

There are so many great people here with a story to tell, a reason why they’re here. Whether it be for good or bad; question remains, why am I here?

Taking a moment to reflect, I realized that I’ve changed since arriving. I’m more relaxed, in the best shape of my life, my golf handicap is to a single digit, I’m ridiculously tan; but what else?

In terms of where I want to take my life from is uncertain. What I do know is that following my passion and doing what I love has given me incredible satisfaction.

So is that what life is all about? Doing what you love and enjoying life? I still feel as though there’s much I need to do and give back.

I’m lucky enough that I love to write and I feel as though I’m pretty fucking good at it. What can I say, my vocabulary is vast, however sometimes those words really help enunciate the point.

Any who, if you’re reading this and wondering, what’s his next move. Well confession, I don’t know. I’ve become quite comfortable with change and risk. The fact I took it, makes it easier to make the jump again. Where I’ll land, well that’s the million dollar question.

What I do know for certain is that I want a way to continue the lifestyle that I’ve enjoyed, but I need a variation or else I fall in the perpetual lifestyle of comfort (I’ll avoid that, thanks).

I missed writing this blog, but where shall we go from here. I have a few plans in the works. Time will reveal them, actions will show and words will be few.

The world is a big place, I want to experience it. I want to continue to inspire and motivate people, while at the same time growing as a person. My spiritual, mental and physical aspects of my person have grown drastically.  Where shall we take these new found skills?

Ladies and gents, we’ll get back together soon. I’ve changed, so my blog should reflect it.

Changes are coming. Here we go!

Thanks for stopping by, peace and love!

Growth 101: An Attitude on Gratitude.

Growth 101: An Attitude on Gratitude.

It’s that time of the year again. Yes, the holidays always bring out the best in people (besides Boxing Day shopping). There’s a greater sense of positivity and gratitude towards each person. As well, we’re thinking of others.

The fact we’re thinking of others is an important aspect of life. It shows how appreciative you are and how much you care about them. 

But it doesn’t have to be once a year, we can practice gratitude everyday. Ultimately creating a much happier and healthier mindset along the way.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

– John F. Kennedy 

I know I’m guilty of sometimes thinking negatively, however if you take a moment to think how grateful you are for the things in your life, it brings you to a much happier state of mind.

It doesn’t take much to be grateful, your attitude towards gratitude should be a primary thought process. By doing so, you’re in the moment and not giving a thought to anything negative. As positivity and negativity are a part of our lives, we choose how they affect us. 

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

– Denis Waitley

Be grateful, be thankful, appreciate what you have as there was once a day when you hoped for everything you have now.

Everyone is on their own journey. Enjoy yours. 

As well here is a great article from INC magazine featuring a number of famous quotes on gratitude, enjoy! Inc.com Article.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and a pleasure as always.

Growth 101: Love is fundamental!

Growth 101: Love is fundamental!

I’m back! Yes, I’ve been gone for some time but not forgotten!

Through my life recently I’ve discovered something that is always there but sometimes over looked. It’s LOVE!

Yes, love, now why am I talking about love when we look at growth? Well for one, it can inspire you, drive you, encourage you and even destroy you. You choose how love plays a role in your life.

 

Let’s break it down…

 

Where do we get love from in our lives?

  1. We have love from friends

2. We have love from family

 

3. We have love from our significant other

 

4. Honorable mention – Love from our pets

 

Be open to love, it can change how you look at the world. Better yet, it can change how you impact the world.

Positivity and love play such a large role in our lives that we tend to forget just how important it is to us. More than that, we tend to forget how important being loved is.

We only miss it when it’s gone, but appreciate those that give you love. To do that, give some right back.

Whether it’s a stranger on the street you greet with a smile, offering encouraging words for a colleague or just being there for your friends. It’s all centered in love.

Think about it, when we grew up, how much did we appreciate the love that our families gave us. I was fortunate enough that love was always readily available and that made me feel invincible. There are people that love and care about you; now go out and make them proud!

The world needs more love, don’t be afraid to show it. The more you give, the more you’ll get.

Love = Growth (give more, grow faster)

 

Enjoy these videos on selfless love. Prepare for some emotions. 

 

 

Do it for love.
