So, what did this year teach you?

Hi everyone,

I am sure that everyone of us has been challenged and tested and put through the wringer this year so, what did we learn? Did we learn to be more patient, or perhaps more organised or did we learn that we don’t like cabbage, or that we never want to home school our children again?

Whatever we learnt, did it add to our lives, or take away.

Life-long learning is what helps us to grow and what keeps us relevant. I am not talking necessarily about formal training, but rather the lessons of life that we learn every day that help us survive and flourish.

When we learn, we tend to make changes based on those learnings and very soon those changes determine who we become. So, are we learning the right things and becoming better, or are we taking on things that either maintain the status quo, or even worse, leave us behind? Only you can determine that.

There seems to be almost two camps when it comes to demonstrating what we have learnt.

The camp that looks for the worst and has a justification or blame for everything that happens to them. Then there is the other camp that have been through exactly the same experiences as the first but understand that HOPE is always there and that things will get better. The difference between the two camps is that the first group believe it is everyone else’s responsibility to make things better, while the second group understand the need to take control of their situation and do everything they can to work towards a solution.

Which camp have you landed in?

So, my challenge to you this week is to identify one thing in your life that you are not happy about and take back the controls. Not in an aggressive way, but rather in a way that turns the situation from Hopelessness to HOPE.

Take back the control of the behaviours you need to change and in your own time and in your own way, reinvent them.

It’s amazing how our vision changes when we do this very simple thing. Our learnings then have a completely different look and meaning.

Have an awesome week full of HOPE.
