Is it fate or destiny?
“We fail to say the right words, because we choose to say the wrong words!
We choose to say the wrong words, because we fail to think about the right words!”
- Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
What does the above quote evoke in you?
Do you agree with this or do you believe you always say the right thing?
Do you think before you speak and what are the consequences of not doing so?
Of course we all know that we can 'put our foot' in it at times and sabotage our relationships
and rapport with others by sometimes saying the wrong thing.
But are we fully aware of how much our words actually sabotage ourselves also?
Let's take the words 'Fate' and 'Destiny' -
pretty similar, right? .
..Or are they...
Fate is from the Latin fatum, which means "that which has been spoken."
Destiny is from the Latin destinare, which means "to make firm" or "to establish."
Which would give YOU more power, control, self motivation and direction?
Destiny or course.
If you want to achieve something, have a goal, want to get somewhere..
You have to firmly establish a destination.
Leaving it to 'fate' might not get you there.
Personally I believe our fate is a result of our destiny
which is determined by our words and actions.
If you are ready to take control of your words, direction in life and ultimately your destiny,
then its time you joined us on the next NLP Practitioner Training.
Your words and your world will never be the same again ;-)
I believe in more than 'positive' thinking.
I believe in 'practical' thinking,
which opens and expands your mind and leads to a more fulfilled and complete life.
This quote sums it up perfectly with these powerful words.
"She sees in black and white,
thinks in greys,
but loves in colour."
Think smart, love being wrong and dream big with a passion.

Are you like Scrat?
Poor Scrat was a little saber-toothed squirrel in the animation Ice Age. He was constantly chasing his beloved Acorn - to no avail - and always resulting in disastrous consequences for him and his surroundings.
Is there a message in this?
Well...last week I GOT the Acorn ;-)
An exquisite little gift of handmade jewelry by my love. He knew I would appreciate the symbolism.
It got me thinking.....
Are we always chasing, striving, hoping, wishing, dreaming.
Longing for something or someone just out of arm's reach?
If you find you may be doing a little Scrat impersonation at times, think about how it leaves you feeling.
If you are chasing a bit too hard then you might be feeling at the same moment a sense of 'not enough' as you are without it. What does that do to you?
I recently felt 'loss'. It hurt and I felt very afraid. I wasn't sure what to do next.
I was confused and perplexed at the change in the status quo.
Do we sometimes tend to get too familiar, too reliant, too complacent with 'things' as they are?
Well, my little acorn is now around my neck to remind me of two things.
1 - We all have our 'acorns' - our seeds, our dreams.
Whether you can see it or touch it, YOU still have it. BE it and live your life from that place.
Be strong, brave, courageous. Yes dream big and have goals BUT and it's important -
DO this from a place that you are enough already.
2 - BE present. Be in the moment. Be grateful.
My little gift might one day break off from my neck.
I could lock it away and never wear it at the risk of loosing it, but then I would not be enjoying it.
Instead I choose to hold my head high, allow the sun to shine on my face,
and even if one day I have to say goodbye .... I know that really, I always have it within me.
Live with purpose and gratitude at every moment.
Remember you were that nut who stood his ground ;-)
