I did that!

This is Mau!

I sat back, content and smug, and continued to stare at the website I’d been working on for the last three weeks.  A ‘cheshire cat’ grin tugged the corners of my mouth upwards as I thought to myself: ‘I did that!’.

Welcome to my new website, it’s been three weeks in the making, thanks to my very limited knowledge of anything techy, but here it is! Working on my website has got me thinking about how far I’ve come since I started this journey…

Do you ever take the time to look back at your achievements? I must admit that this isn’t something I do very often, preferring instead to stay as focussed as possible on the journey ahead.

…with the partner of your dreams

…a lithe and healthy body

…a holiday home or new car

…being the head of your organisation

…and so on…?Continue Reading

Perseverance Pep Talk!

arainYou’ve been working and working towards you dreams and goals but just recently things seem to have slowed and the visible results you’d previously been seeing are now blending into the everyday. You’ve lost track of your achievements to date and instead you’ve become consumed with the fact that you’ve plateaued, or worse, started to regress. Your motivation is waning and frustration is setting in.

Sound familiar? It happens to us all unfortunately.

But these are the times when we need to muster all the strength we possibly can, plus more, and just keep going. There are many stories of people who have given up on their dream literally a few paces away from the place that would have given them success and then, when they’ve let their dream go they hear of someone succeeding at their goal, in their place.Continue Reading
