Reflections from a big 2017. Hope you had a great one, and that 2018 is amazing.
Month: December 2017
I was reminded today as I went outside for some fresh morning air, that today is/was the longest day of the year (southern hemisphere summer solstice). It made me think… the sun will rise and the sun will set every day…. that is one of the only things that is constant in our lives. Everything else we don’t really know, but we can change our lives, our future by focusing on our choices, our plans, our actions…. by implementing the Freedom Engineering processes and procedures to create change, to create success..
In today’s society, it’s easy to get caught up in this concept of FOMO, or Fear Of Missing Out. We see other people’s lives through the lens of social media and can be mistaken for thinking that others are leading these perfect, amazing lives. This creates envy, comparison and anxiety.
It’s important to recognise that we only see other people’s lives through a very filtered lens and you cannot be sure what is going on inside the cover of the perfect instashot or facebook post.
Creating a success mindset includes recognising the concept of FOMO and when it appears, having the capacity to focus only on what you can control or what you can do. Don’t let other people’s lives be a drawcard for you. Make your capability the drawcard for your life.
Mindset shift, action steps and consistency has led me to today when I will host the first of the Melbourne Entrepreneurship Meetup events. Shows an example of making the choice to follow a path that leads to success and creating the life that you want instead of following the crowd.
Did you know Christmas is actually 2 months later than it is meant to be… apparently it shifted after the invention of the Roman calendar. Led me to think …. what else are we doing just because that is the way it’s always been done, without questioning the reasons.
How about following your own path??
Caught up with an old friend today and talked about how a community is very important. Also talked about finding bliss state and making sure the conditions are right for growth…
