Trust The Process

No matter where you are right now, who you are with, what you are doing and how you want to grow… trust the process.

New possibilities emerge in every moment, whether we are conscious of them or not. Setbacks and mistakes also realign us to redirect us on our journey to go where we want to go and allow us to be where we need to be. In time, everything starts to make sense. The clouds pass. The dots all connect. The stars align. We realise everything was perfect the whole time, even if we weren’t aware of it.

Infuse your thoughts with positivity. Remember to always be sunny-side up, even in challenging times. Be present and centred, especially in moments of uncertainty. Continue to believe. Stay aligned to your dreams and visions. Truly feel and know that everything is working in your favour!

Trusting the process to me means believing in my personal growth and power and doing everything I can to make things happen. What you do doesn’t have to have immediate impact. However, I know and believe that if I continue to stay committed to my goals and aspirations, that in itself is trusting the process and working towards newer and brighter horizons. Without trust and faith, we are merely machines and we won’t have the ability to invest in what we love and most importantly, ourselves.

These words funnelled its way into my consciousness today and I felt the need to share it. I hope it brings you hope and keeps your faith alive! Remember to also be kind to yourself.

Stay blessed.

Bright Lights and Festive Spirits

It’s Christmas Eve. It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year.

The world is adorned with bright lights and the energy is filled with festive spirits right now. As we get prepared to give and receive our love and presents/presence tomorrow… let’s also take a moment to feel humbly blessed and grateful for all that we have and all that we are able to share with others and the world.

Let’s also take a moment to think of those that are alone or lonely and don’t have a roof over their heads or a massive Christmas feast to dive into. Let’s think of those less fortunate than us and give back in any simple way or form that we can. You just never know who might be raised in spirit or lifted from despair by your simple act(s) of kindness… whether it’s a smile, a hug, a kind gesture or even just your loving presence. The littlest acts of kindness and grace can go a long way and be treasured for a lifetime, especially by those in need.

We live in a materialistic world and whilst we are very fortunate, every year we accumulate so much ‘stuff’. This holiday season, spend some time decluttering your home, donating items that can be loved by someone else, and clearing out your energies to welcome an era of newness for the new decade that is fast approaching. Speaking of cleansing and clearing, the Solar Eclipse that is to take place on Thursday 26th December at 4:17pm AEDT is a perfect time to sage your home, to write down your intentions and dreams for the upcoming year and beyond and to really hone in on your personal intentions and visions for the future. Leaf out your journals and write down all your wishes. This is spiritually a very significant time to launch into new beginnings, to start fresh and ride the wave of love and divine grace.

You have come so far in the last twelve months and it is important to honour your journey and learnings to help prepare you for what is to come. I truly hope and pray that beautiful things happen to you over this magical season and that you share this beauty with the world to amplify the gift of giving. With every breath and step we take, we are creating moments that we will treasure forever with our loved ones! Be conscious. Be present. Be kind to yourself and others.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a magical decade that we are about to embark on in 2020! I look forward to sharing this journey with you.

Stay blessed.

My Ingredients for Success

As a marketing professional, over the years I have always had drilled into me the importance of the traditional marketing mix, namely the Four P’s in business – Product, Price, Place and Promotion. This builds the very foundation of every business and defines the strategic and marketing objectives to the core.

Now we move on to talking about life and creative ideas…

Going back to basics and to grassroots, I am a firm believer in the fact that ideas generally always start small and have the potential to materialise BIG.

This also depends on the person that’s giving birth to these ideas, the one that’s breathing life into these ideas, the one that’s making sh*t happen (excuse the French). It takes a mammoth effort to bring an idea to life but what’s most amazing about it is the person’s journey and all the learning and growth that happens during the process.

To bring an idea to life takes plenty of work and what I like to refer to as my Four P’s in Life – Patience, Persistence, Perseverance and Positivity.

Why Patience?

It takes time, time and even more time for progress to take place. Stay humble and accept all the wins and lessons (not losses). Set goals in place and stay focused and committed to the higher purpose.

Why Persistence?

Consistency and persistence is key to keep moving forward. The only way is forward. And there are always learnings along the way.

Why Perseverance?

No one can make you do anything in life. Only you can! So you need to push yourself and to really want something to make it happen.

Why Positivity?

A positive and healthy mindset is vital to having a consistent approach to achieving your dreams and visions. Think mind over matter always and focus on the silver linings when life throws curveballs and challenges your way.

Do you have these four noble qualities? Is this something you’re working on? These are my four ingredients for success and I wanted to share them with you today.

Take it from a marketer of both marketing and life in general. The core business objectives of an idea are crucial but what really drives you deep down are your personal objectives. It always comes down to the people. Motivating your people. Motivating yourself.

Remember, it’s rain that grows flowers not thunder. Plant some seeds this weekend and watch them develop into something meaningful and amazing. Keep moving forward, just one step (or leap) at a time.

Stay blessed.
