HAPPINESS

john mulvey life coach happiness

Something that the majority of people search for! It’s often illusory for the majority, because many of us have been led to believe that working hard forms the basis for success and automatic pleasure. Working hard is not to be discounted, but it doesn’t necessarily guarantee satisfaction. I read a book by Shawn Achor some years ago that fuelled the idea of happiness being an advantage. I agree with that but want to dispel the belief that only monetary success is the panacea. Read more

Get a Move on!

Motivation moves people! It provides you and I with a reason to act, to do and to be. You may be in a position where you would like a person or a group of people to perform in a particular way. Motivation therefore should not be confused with manipulation. There is a difference and a distinction worthy of note. Read more

Moving On!

Moving on!

In my last missive I mentioned providing instant pleasure then moving on, which had become the success revival of the film industry all those years ago. It rings true to this day and television programmes are certainly no exception with countless episodes of popular topics being not only repeated, but also following on from a previously unfinished outcome. An example would be Foyles War, which for me is a superb programme and watchable on a regular basis. Another is Judge John Deed, with good acting, good characters and different topics integrated into an interesting format. However, that’s from my perspective because I am not a TV ‘watch anything’ type. Read more

STEPPING STONES

Stepping Stones

Every step we take and ‘selling’ oneself is so important for advancement. How we go about the process can determine whether we arrive at a beneficial place that is satisfactory as we travel along our chosen road.

Some people have entrepreneurial ideas without back up or support. Being aware of the Feast or Famine Syndrome is a good start, although I call it the Loneliness of the Long-Distance Runner of a business. If you’re like me, then you could fall into the trap of having entrepreneurial ideas without back up or support. Read more

Step by Step

step by step

I wrote about stepping stones recently and this is a follow up to keep interested readers on track.

The first step is to write down your intentions and keep them by your bed at night. Whatever you would like to achieve or aspire to is more powerful in written form. Reading the written word regarding your desires is a strong method for achieving your aims. An example might me: “I would like to bring good fortune to myself in every area if my life. Specifically; finances, family, friendships” etc. Read more

Every step we take and ‘selling’ oneself is so important for advancement. How we go about the process can determine whether we arrive at a beneficial place that is satisfactory as we travel along our chosen road. And, it is imperative to believe that it is by choice we elect to go on our way. One step at a time is all it takes, and realizing we’re treading a path requires self-awareness so that we stay on course.It’s all to do with mental attitude and making our steps positive. There is nothing to gain without determination and a willingness to stay true to our beliefs and satisfactory outcomes. There may be pitfalls along the way, and these are to be anticipated in order to accept and deal with as part of the journey. Nothing comes of nothing, so how we plot our journey will determine the eventual outcome. It’s all to do with deciding what we would like to achieve and having the fortitude to stay on track whatever hindrance might pop up. Read more

make things happen

I believe that there are three types of people in our world: those who wonder what happened; those who watch what happens and those who make things happen. Have you ever considered into which category you might fit? Aldous Huxley, an English author who wrote, ‘Brave New World,’ which was about an imaginary place where everything was bad – ‘Dystopia’ – said that everything that happens to us is like us.
