Daily Logs 27, 28, 29, 30 June 2011 – Busy working on my book ‘ReActivate Your Life – How To Make Changes And Achieve Anything You Want In Your Life’

MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS

OK. I have been neglecting writing here for a few days. So now I have to make a quick recap of the activities during the day. Before I do that, the book ‘ReActivate Your Life – How To Make Changes And Achieve Anything You Want In Your Life’ that I’m writing is going well and my new website will be launched next week. I’ve also been working on some audio recording as well as articles about some of the principles I’m going to include in the book.

The other exciting thing is that I have registered as a contributor to ezinearticles.com. I’m still a novice at writing and this is one of the steps I’m taking to improve my writing. Have a look there if you have the time.

Daily Log 23 June 2011 – I’ve lost everything

DAILY LOG 23 JUNE 2011 MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS Today is rest day. To be honest, I didn’t feel like working out. My MacBook died on me today, taking with it all my work on my book, the audios I’ve been recording and the articles and ebooks I’ve been working on. Yes. I readily admit that …

‘REACTIVATE YOUR LIFE – HOW TO MAKE CHANGES AND ACHIEVE ANYTHING YOU WANT IN YOUR LIFE’

I am writing a book. There, I said it. I’ve been mulling the idea of penning down what I’ve learnt over the years that has enabled to me to make some major and extra-ordinary changes in my life. I began to write about 2 weeks ago and frankly speaking I didn’t know what to write and how to write it. There’s been days wen I would sit down and stare at the monitor without a clue of what to write about. Recently, the ideas just kept flowing in and them more I write, the more the ideas would come.

I don’t want this to be a conventional book and I am striving to make it different, if not in thee way it is written then in the way I write it. So I’ve decided to start releasing excerpts from the book. The first one can be found on the ReActivate Your Life Facebook Fan Page for the book. Have a read of it. It’s called, ‘Why some changes are doomed to fail’.

It wa a really fun session for me (at least when I started to loosen up)

DAILY LOG 15 JUNE 2011

MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS

Over the last few weeks I have embarked on a small project, a book. I’ve wanted to write a book for a long time now but when it comes to doing something about it, I’ll always a reason to do it another time. For some reason I got really inspired about 3 weeks ago and have begun the book. I now have the outline and structure and have slowly started filling in certain sections of the book. I’ve even started to get things on audio as part of the marketing preparation. More details will come later. Suffice to say, life is really starting to pick up. With the book, and the recording and the planning and not to forget, my triathlon training, I find myself really really looking for more time in a day.

I feel so lucky and fortunate to be able to do all this.

Daily Log 12 June 2011 – What would you do if you knew you cannot fail

DAILY LOG 12 JUNE 2011

MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS

‘What would you do if you knew you cannot fail’?

This question was asked of me a long time ago by my Business School For Entrepeneurs (BSE) Instructor, Dominique Lyone. Ever since I attended the BSE, my life has literally undergone a major overhaul (several times actually). I quit my job, I started to take to the stage to be a trainer and instructor, I started my own training and consulting company, became broke and nearly bankrupt and of course am now in training for a triathlon.

Looking back over the years (there’s been 8 of them), I can honestly say I have had a blessed life even during the many downs that I had to endure. The BSE taught me the meaning of commitment, the power of planning, the magic of thinking big and the absolute wonder of life.

Daily Log 11 June 2011 – find your passion and make an empire out of it

DAILY LOG 11 JUNE 2011

MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS

Yesterday I watched a video by Brendan Burchard, the author of several books and the founder of The Expert Academy. It was a solid value and really got me thinking about a lot of things. One of the most profound things I learnt from him was to figure out what I am passionate about and build an empire out of it.

I am passionate about a lot of things but yesterday I discovered that I wasn’t really doing anything about it. Yes, one of the things I want to do is help and support people to achieve success but I haven’t really done it on a large scale, much less build an empire out of it.

So all day I’ve been thinking about what I know, what I’ve gone through, what I’ve learnt and how I can use all this to support people achieve success.

Daily Log 9 June 2011 – pushing my limits every single day

My first time open water swim

DAILY LOG 9 JUNE 2011

MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS

Ever since I started this journey I seem to have new found confidence in everything I do (despite the many setbacks and failures). I think it’s because I’ve just gotten used to pushing my limits every single day when I work on improving my swimming, cycling and running. If I was not able to view failures and setbacks as mere learning experiences, I would have given up this whole triathlon training a long time ago.

Daily Log 8 June 2011 – Compassion for self is the greatest gift you can give to yourself

DAILY LOG 8 JUNE 2011

MUSINGS AND THOUGHTS

Compassion was not something I associated myself with. Once upon a long time ago I was a very different person. At the core I was a deeply angry person and whenever I failed at something or when I encounter stress I used to beat myself up, quite literary. I used to bang my head against the wall and if there wasn’t a wall available I would use my fist. It was as the more I hurt myself, the better I felt. The odd thing was that nobody knew I was doing it. I hid the shame of it so well that even my closest friends didn’t know what was going on with me, much less what I was doing to myself.

We are never thought to love ourselves. It was as if the very idea of self love came from vanity and was frowned upon. Yet that very idea hits us at the core. We should love ourselves more. We should love ourselves so much that the idea of not doing what we want to do (or living the life that we want to live or even chasing the dream we want to pursue) is alien and unthinkable.
