Learn to let go. Worth a read

There are many people, situations and events in life that cause us to hang on to anger, hurt and in some cases revenge. Unless we learn to let go of the feeling that this negative emotion creates, you will struggle to move forward. The more energy you give to it, the more difficulties you will experience in life.

Here is a great analogy to think about.

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.

She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.”

She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

Remember to put the glass down.

Inspirational video

As parents, we want only the best for our children and we wish we could project our wisdom and life experience into your minds to help you avoid the mistakes and mishaps that we experienced growing up. In this new world we currently find ourselves in you will be inundated with advice from adults and schools encouraging you to chase your dreams and believe in yourself blah blah blah……and we as adults have to be mindful of not forcing you into doing the opposite. It is a fine line.
So for what its worth, I have had a lifetime of proof that it is possible to create a better world for yourself and it is through believing that you deserve an exceptional life and are prepared to do whatever it takes to give yourself that life that will set you apart from the rest.

This video summarises everything we need to know to focus and create our dream. It gives most scenarios that could possibly come up. All the barriers and resistance, mistakes and the realisation of others letting us down. DON”T let these STOP you from creating the life that you want. Even if it takes years rather than months just remember – You deserve it?

Australian politics

Well if nothing else, the current political parties of Australia are educating the youth of Australia about how NOT to run a country. I constantly shake my head at the fact that some of our current senior leaders have such poor performance history and yet can still attain a high level of power.

Not surprisingly, a large percentage of Australians don’t understand the Australian political system so I have tried to explain in plain English how Australian politics is structured and who’s who amongst the key players.

Unfortunately in Australia, like so many countries many citizens feel despondent and disappointed (putting it mildly) by what our elected governments are doing. So many of our politicians appear to have lost the root basis of what their party actually stands for and believes in. They are unable to agree on issues within their own parties yet alone working together to make Australia a better country. Politicians appear to be more and more out of touch with the Australian public pushing their own agendas with little regard of the long standing affect on the public.
So I think it is very important for all of us including the youth of Australia to start paying attention to what is happening to our beautiful country.

Scams

This is an article resourced from AVG Australia.

This is particularly pertinent with tax time just around the corner. Some of these may be obvious but still worth mentioning. It is alarming how many people still fall for scams including adults that should know better.

The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) have advised that the number of email scams reported to them have tripled to almost 11,000, compared to the same quarter last year.
