I’ve just got back from my summer holiday and I feel ready to really make the most of the rest of the year.
I know lots of people return from their vacation feeling so stressed that they need another one just to recover!
But, to me… as well as seeing a different place and sampling another culture, I totally believe in rest, relaxation and reflection.
And it’s the last of these, reflection. that I want to talk about today.
When you have a few days away from the usual day-to-day stresses and challenges of modern life, it gives you time to reflect on what is really important and allows you to see things clearly.
It’s as if you gain a totally new perspective on your life by being able to step out of it for a time.
Here’s what I have realised:
1. I have had a very productive year so far (having started some fundamental changes in my life and made genuine progress)
2. I need to keep up what I am doing to really embed the changes I have made and continue the momentum I have
3. September will be a big month for me – as I launch not one but two self-development training programs that I hope will help other people to enjoy the changes I have already experienced
4. The rest of this year is going to be about just three things: helping others, getting as healthy and fit as possible and continuing to be as positive and determined to live a better life as possible.
I am particularly pleased with the insights I gained when thinking about number 4. It’s so easy to get overwhelmed by the complexity of the modern world and not see things clearly. But when I sat in the sun and really reflected, it seemed to me so clear that those three things are all that really matter to me.
As a simple equation it looks like this:
2015 = helping others + health + positivity
What I love about such a simple view of life is that it cuts out all the BS and reduces it to a simple and easy to follow set of fundamentals that make every decision so much easier.
Now I just ask myself: Does the thing I’m thinking of doing bring me closer to my 3 key aims?
Anything that doesn’t fit is quickly discarded or avoided.
Honestly, this simple Life Equation has really helped me!
Now, going back to my 4 thoughts…
I will be back on this blog very soon (early September) to give you more details about my two training programs.
I am very excited about these as I believe I will be able to offer real, step-by-step training that will help people to make fundamental changes in their lives.
I promise to share this here with you first before anyone else gets a look in. I am very lucky to have so many loyal readers of this blog, and I want to thank you all for the overwhelming amount of support and interest I have had from people offering to review these products for me.
Thank you so much for all the emails and kind words. I have now selected a small number of people to have early-bird access to the training and contacted them to let them know. I just wanted to thank all of you who offered to help.
Not only will I let you all have the opportunity to get hold of this training as soon as it is finished, but as a loyal blog reader, I will give you the chance to get it at a special low launch rate.
I’ll be back very soon in September to give you all the details!
I hope you had a great vacation and have managed to gain clarity on the rest of this year in your own life.
