    Spotlight: Meriam Nedri

    The Spotlight series introduces and celebrates the next generation of thinkers and makers as they enter the professional workforce. We are proud to support Australia's emerging creators, leaders and contributors as they share their skills, passions, ideas and experiences as young people ready to make a positive difference in the world.

    This week I had the pleasure of interviewing Meriam Nedri, a final year student at LaTrobe University, undertaking a Bachelor of Psychological Science.

    Meriam is an impressive young person who is passionate about researching human behaviour and developmental conditions such as autism. She aspires to work in an industry that is committed to increasing awareness and reducing the stigmatisation of mental illness.

    Aside from her studies, Meriam does wonderful work with the Youth Advocacy Group (YAG), a local initiative of non-profit organisation, Headspace.

    We discuss all of the above and more in this conversation, highlighting important issues surrounding mental health, university, career pathways and the impact of the pandemic and lockdown on young people in our community.

    S2 Essential Skills Ep6: Patience

    S2 Essential Skills Ep6: Patience

    We've come to the end of the 'Essential Skills' series! If you haven't yet, I encourage you to listen to the previous 5 episodes as I share some insights into why building these specific skills is important for cultivating a purposeful and meaningful life.

    I wanted to round out the series with Patience - no doubt a virtue that we're all struggling to honour right now! If you're feeling stressed and anxious about this seemingly never-ending pandemic, perhaps this episode will help you focus on what you do have control over - your mindset and attitude in this season of waiting.

    Modern culture has conditioned us to want things instantly, because new technologies and communications have made it possible! But we can undo this pattern, we can change and re-learn to appreciate the benefits of time and space to think more clearly, reflect, be grateful and enjoy the peace of the present moment.

    Patience is an essential skill.

    Patience is a virtue.

    "Patience provides perspective."
    - Simon Sinek

    S2 Essential Skills Ep5: Optimism

    S2 Essential Skills Ep5: Optimism

    Do you consider yourself an optimistic person?

    Some people might think that being optimistic is simply a personality trait - that some people just are, and some are not.

    However my view is that optimism is a skill that requires constant development, something that each and every one of us should be working on regularly if we aspire to achieve great things in life.

    I've learned throughout the years that optimism is connected to employing perspective, harnessing gratitude and having faith.

    More than just an essential skill, I also see optimism as a spiritual practice - enabling us to build positive momentum derived from trusting something or someone bigger than us. I channel my optimism through my faith in God, and what I know for sure is that growing spiritually from within, positively impacts all other areas of life.

    In many ways, optimism is faith and vice versa, and my hope is that this episode encourages you to harness both.

    S2 Essential Skills Ep4: Adaptability

    S2 Essential Skills Ep4: Adaptability

    In this episode, I discuss the importance of being adaptable in our fast-moving world - one that is now more than ever, troubled with fear of all that is uncertain and unknown.

    It has become a recurring theme across my content that not being able to change what happens on the outside, should not deter us from creating change from within.

    I've found it to be true in my life that once you learn to embrace and then focus on the control that you do have, you free yourself from the expectations that the world or other people will change for you. It is much easier to move forward when your trust isn't tied to things you cannot control.

    My hope is that this episode helps you feel a sense of empowerment, with the understanding that each of us is responsible for how we respond to what happens in our lives, and that our response is often the key to unlocking productive solutions.

    Being able to adapt to our surroundings like birds and chameleons, brings forth in us resilience and a confidence that will position us well as we pursue the lives we desire.

    “A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because its trust is not on the branch but on its own wings.” ― Charlie Wardle

    S2 Essential Skills Ep3: Discipline

    S2 Essential Skills Ep3: Discipline

    It's often a struggle to get moving on things we don't enjoy doing, but that must be done. Any arduous task, or one that takes us out of our comfort zone, is something that most of us try to avoid at all costs.

    Yet learning how to build the discipline required to accomplish such tasks, is an essential skill - because discipline makes us more responsible, productive and empowered people.

    When we strive for discipline, whether it's in our career or general lifestyle, we start to create healthy structures and boundaries that make our days more effective and enjoyable.

    Finding time to do the things we love most becomes easier when we prioritise everything else, because discipline keeps us accountable. Unlike motivation, discipline calls us to be proactive - rather than waiting around for the right feeling, our focus can be on doing.

    Building discipline is hard work and in many ways an ongoing process, but one which reaps multiple benefits especially when it comes to achieving personal goals and cultivating a fulfilled life.

    American author and podcaster John Gretton "Jocko" Willink, who is also a retired officer of the United States Navy, said it best, "Discipline equals freedom."

    S2 Essential Skills Ep2: Resourcefulness

    S2 Essential Skills Ep2: Resourcefulness

    We live in a culture that often fixates on what we lack in life - of what we don't have enough of - whether it is in material things or standards of beauty and success that we are exposed to across our multiple screens, standards that we feel we'll never measure up to.

    These messages then encourage us to spend money and buy things we don't really need - sometimes recklessly investing in superficial solutions to our very real problems.

    What can get lost amidst all of this is the fact that we actually have everything we need to start creating and living the lives that we dream of. It all begins from within us and our ability to be resourceful enough to utilise and maximise the things we already possess.

    I believe that resourcefulness is in many ways, an underrated skill and in every way, an essential one. If we can learn to harness our innate capacity to be resourceful, then no challenge will be too great for us to overcome.

    “When I’ve lost my way or when I am confused about a path to take, I remember that most answers I need I already possess – deep inside. I am naturally creative, resourceful and whole. If I consult my invisible compass, I’ll know what to do.” ― Steve Goodier
