1.0: Great love and great achievements involve great risk.
It is worth it, if you desire it so.
Life, is many things and one of them is – life is a big exercise in Risk Management.
Remember: No Risk, No nothing.
2.0Don’t laugh at anyone’s dreams. People who don’t have dreams, don’t have much.
What are dreams?
Dreams tell dreamers what could be as opposed to what currently is. Dreams are essential to creativity and innovation and achieving goals.
They are ‘dreams with a deadline.’ Everything begins and ends in the mind, starting with your imagination/dreams. As a mentor once said –
What are goals?
“If you can conceive it and believe it, you can achieve it.’
I used to tell people that if I made that person I see in the mirror better than, last week, than last month, than last year … in ten years I will be on the World Stage, standing and competing against the best in the world.”
Within ten years, I stood on stage against the best natural bodybuilders at that time, representing Australia. A Big Dream, come true. I repeated the feat the following year for good measure. As a great mentor once said –
“If you think you can, you’re right … you CAN.”
Don’t ever laugh at another person’s dream, no matter how far-fetched it is.
2.5 Disagree with people, if you must but don’t hate them.
It’s ok agree to disagree and still like someone.
In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling and personal judgements. Leave judgemental comments to God or people who have a profession as a Judge.
Shit happens. Stand your ground. Don’t be afraid.
So, there you go… 2.5 lessons. “0.5” as the list is far from exhaustive. I’m sure your can add many more to it from your observations of life so far.
Until next time, take good care of your lovely self
Yours in care, compassion & trust,
