    25: Your Test Awaits You

    Here's another toast to a new year and new decade, with so much expectations for greater and better experiences, outcomes and rewards. It is easy, however, to forget that tests come with the terrain. These aren't what we are ever excited about, but they serve key roles in actually making the new or the terrain worth our while. On this first episode of the year, I share the major types of tests we could be faced with and key things to help us make the best of it all. Bonne année.

    24: Treasures In The Depths

    There is a reason why precious stones and other life valuables aren't easily accessible. In fact, if you have an idea how to get any, you'll probably be paying a premium to acquire it in its finest form or you will be doing much work to mine / excavate and refine / process. Truly, all that is of value lies within the deep, requiring focus, attention and consistent effort to obtain. And this also applies to whatever you want the best from in life. But are you ready to dig? Will you continue to dig till you reach the core in the depths where the true treasure lies?

    23: Thank You, I Noticed

    What unique things are you incorporating into your leadership style to enable you get the best from your team? How are you trying to be intentional to sustain that key relationship of yours? In "Thank You, I Noticed", I, amongst other examples, shared a story I read recently in John Maxwell's Book - The 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth, of how a leader started a special practice as he grew in his role. I also highlight other key points you should factor in, as you consider this practice, which will help boost your team engagements and keep your relationships even stronger.

    22: The Value Code

    Have you ever wondered why you have been pushing for certain changes in your life and yet not getting the desired outcome? Have you often struggled with making the right choices in difficult situations like major life cross roads? The answers to these lie with an underlying factor which I call The Value Code. This code has not only been key to shaping who you are today, it is one of the critical things you need to review and modify to create the different life you desire. On this episode, I shed some light on what this code is really about and I also share 3 simple steps to recoding.

    21: Journey to Clarity

    If you've been struggling a bit with clarity, then “Journey to Clarity” is a timely episode just for you. On this episode, I share my own story on my journey to clarity, while I worked on specific personal goals and dreams. I also share critical ideas I have gleaned from additional studies that I believe will wipe that blur for anyone who implements them. I plan to do even more to fine tune my clarity level, because I know clarity is what differentiates the one who aims and hits and the one who's not even ready to aim because he can't see his target.

    20: Stop Justifying It

    If you've moved houses or offices a few times you'd have learnt that the hardest part may not boxing your stuff or lifting them to the truck and off, though of course this has its strains. It is actually having to decide what must come along with you and what shouldn't any longer. And for some of us this could be really hard! Life transitions work like that too, and if you're not careful not to handle this bit well, you'll pile up loads of unnecessary things, mindsets and even relationships; which eventually could be harmful in your new place. On "Stop Justifying It", I share some questions and ideas on how you can handle this better.
