Incredible… somehow in the realms of cyberspace you found me!
When I left my role recently with Christopher Howard Training I made wild promises from stage about starting a blog so that people could keep in touch with me and find out what I was up to and what I was doing. At the time, I didn’t really even know what blog meant. And tonight I am proud to announce I adjusted a theme and uploaded my own pictures… look out web-designers, I’m taking over!!
I don’t think the look and feel is quite there yet, but hey… if we waited til I got it perfect you’d never hear from me!!
So here I am…
The last few months I have been doing some navel gazing and some philosophising, a lot of networking as well as a lot of out and out nothing… and over this time I have really been inspired by a number of social entrepreneurs.
I guess the purpose of this blog is to share with anyone who’s interested what I am discovering about contribution as a lifestyle, about the others focussed life rather than the self-focussed life, and the importance of having a reason to get out of bed in the morning.
Having spent years in personal development I’ve learnt that unless there’s a purpose for growth and change, it can get ugly… I find it fascinating, if not somewhat disturbing that despite unprecedented amounts of information available on how to change our thinking, we have unprecedeted rates of depression and other “mental illnesses”. I wonder if its because in this day and age so many of us are blessed with the luxury of not having to worry about where the next meal is coming from, so we find ourselves with plenty of time to wonder “am I worthy?” I wonder what would happen if we started to focus on others for inspiration, if we made a commitment to them, and then had to grow to deliver on that commitment.
Just some nebulous thoughts… I’ll be chatting more about them frequently, so please check in from time to time!! Oh… and leave a comment if you can work out how! I don’t think I can tell you that yet!!
Make someone’s day!!
