It’s Monday and a great place to start the motivation wheel turning for the week. Against a watery backdrop I listen as a young woman takes centre stage to encourage her ‘captive’ audience that all they need is a little more self love – as fuel to navigate the road to success.
I’ve heard it all before (and sometimes I even say a version of it myself) and for the first part of the evening I was trying desperately to keep myself awake and as I looked for the excuse to escape, it dawned on me that this was time I would never get back again so I needed to make sure I made it count. I suspended the part of my brain that controlled the rolling of my eyes and allowed the part of me that was still open for exploration and adventure to take centre stage.
The very act of doing this was powerful. It reconnected me with spirit and the wonders of the universe to be open to new learnings, even from the things I already know. In that moment my spirit was excited!
Here are just some of the powerful things I learnt that evening:
There is always something to learn even when you think you already know it
I know is a dangerous word combination
Time is precious, cherish it
Knowing you are capable is only one part of the equation, you have to take action!
I love me!
The next time you are tempted to say I know, for a moment and allow yourself to open up and you just might learn something new!
