2017 Year in Review

I want to share a key activity we do here at RuralScope each and every January.  It's a simple one and is great for team building as all staff can participate.  But the best part of all is that it cleans the slate ready to bring in new things for the year ahead. We call it CLEANSWEEP.  We grab our diaries and go through each month identifying key things we did / achieved / mucked up etc etc for each month.  And through this process we jot down the highlights as we go.  And we also acknowledge things that didn't go to plan and let them go.  It is a fabulous time for each of us to reflect, review, acknowledge, let go and celebrate.  One thing I know for sure is that it creates pride and allows each of us the time to re-calibrate for the year ahead.  We have just completed our CLEANSWEEP, here's what we found.....

10 New Year Wellbeing Tips

I am always bombarded with an array of workshop, webinar, teleseminar and conference offers at the beginning of the year. Most of them are about learning the business secrets to increasing cash flow, improving marketing, setting up a to die for business plan, getting your head around how to use social media for your business etc etc.... the list is actually endless.  And yep, each new year, I get caught up in the "I really should attend / participate..." mentality and then when I don't make the effort feel pretty lousy!

Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway!

One of the Best Books. I vividly recall reading the book, Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway by Susan Jeffers.  It was from this book that I claimed the mantra - "No matters what happens, I can handle it!" This mantra and belief have popped up in my life to date many times over and I have also shared it with others.  

Fear is a Part of Life. Once you take on board that Fear is a part of life and you can't make it go away, then really anything is possible. Just got to learn to have it along for the ride. Many people get caught up in fear based self talk and it literally stops them in their tracks.  And sadly they never move out of their comfort zone to try something new.  Pushing through your fear threshold is what life is all about.  Question for you - when was the last time you felt fear and did it anyway?  Be honest. Read on to see the 5 Truths of Fear and see how these work for you.

A Simple Meditation Technique

Meditation or "dhyana" is a form of concentration. It allows your mind to to focus on one thing and to detach from what's going on in the world around you.  Its like finding a safe place in the eye of a storm.  And when practised regularly it can contribute to the relief of stress and anxiety - things which build up in all of us over time. Let's face it, not a day goes by when we don't feel some sort of stress, so to be able to pause for a few minutes each day and sit in stillness has to have benefits.  Benefits Research tells us that regular meditation creates a calmer person, decreases feelings of anger, supports our nervous system, helps us sleep better, regulates our emotions and helps us to develop greater concentration.  With all these benefits, who wouldn't want to give it a go. We include meditation as part of all the Leadership Programs we develop - YES right alongside topics such as communicating for success, developing your brand, dealing with difficult people etc etc and people love it!  Here is a simple meditation technique for you to try, love to hear how it goes for you.....
