- Has your child been able to study at home?
- Is it up to date or behind?
- If you are a student, how confident do you feel about passing this academic year?
- As a parent or grandparent, how are you coping?
There is a lot of catching up to do when the kids eventually go back. How can this be done?
Why is it hard to get what you want?
We use our mind to go after our goals and desires, to get what we want. The “problem” is that we have three minds and we don’t know how to use them optimally. The minds we have are:
- The conscious
- The subconscious
- The super-conscious
The Conscious mind
We activate this mind when we give our full attention to something. We use the conscious mind to pursue our dreams, goals and desires. Most people only use this mind 5% of the time, or less. Then who is in charge the rest of the time?
- How are you doing so far?
- What is it like for you to be in lock down?
- What are you doing to stay safe and sane?
When life is abnormal, we need to put in a little extra effort to safe and sane. Did you know that your safety and sanity are closely linked?
I am writing this email in my home office. I have just come off a webinar that is replacing our face to face meetings. Are you worried? Are you infected? Can our whispers help you cope?
Even though times are challenging, we do have a choice, are we going to get bitter or better? Are we going to get upset or are we going use these challenging times as an opportunity to grow? How can we be pro-active?
Hard work, what is that?
Everybody tells you that you cannot become successful without putting in the hard work. But was is this hard work that is required of us? Does this mean that we must put in long hours and keep pushing and pulling until we are there? And what is the personal cost? Do we now have to give up sleep, family time and only work? Do we reach the top, while leaving every body who is important to us, behind?
The answer to this question depends on how you are going to do the hard work. You can do it as described above in a physical way, or you can do the hard work in a non-physical way.
For many February is supposed to be the month of love, yet why does love hurts for so many?
Did you know that 1 out 3 women experience some form of abuse?
For men this statistic is 1 out of 8.
This means that of the adults in South Africa at least 10,000,000 people experience some form abuse. And how many children experience abuse? How many are bullied at home or at school?
How can we replace abuse with respect?
