After the spammers have done their childish disruptive thing, we are back online. Hopefully the pathetic nobodies can go back to their sandpit and wait for their nappies to be changed.
Meantime I shall be working on something a little more positive and inspring for you all.
Many of our favourite Olympians of the past experienced disappointment through failure.
Examples are Murray Halberg and Hamish Carter. Both athletes expected to do well only to experience failure at the Olympic games.
At the elite level they operated in, four years can be a long wait for redemption; presuming of course they get selected again.
Four more years of training and competition and sacrifice, yet they did go on to become champions.
What excellent role models for persistance, burning desire, not giving in and going for that dream. The epitome of personal development.
Imagine applying that sme tenacity to your own life.
In a recent news clip another Olympic champion Danyon Loader spoke of developing self belief and overcoming hurdles. The everyday attrubutes you need to develop as part of your own self growth as you move toward becoming an Olympian in your own life.
Olympic rower Matthew Trott has experienced similar ups and downs. He has been to the well only to be dumped and and now he’s back for another shot at glory in London.
Sport reflects life.
Build that winning attitude.
A wee test post to see if after a few ‘fixes’ I have managed to bypass the awful invaders from yesterday.
If so, I shall call that exercise a personal growth experience.
No matter what, there’s always another way, even if you cannot see it at first.
It seems a strange title for blog post on personal development and self growth.
However today I have been invaded by some terrible glitch that I am not happy about.
Hopefully I shall get to the bottom of it and ‘she’ll be right’ as they say.
We are in the grip of a proper winter this year, frosts, snow and some heavy rain. With the frosts we get very cool nights and cold mornings. And if there’s a breeze from the south, then it has an edge to it courtesy of the snow on the mountains. Of course if you love skiing, then you will be very happy indeed – providing you get the opportunity to get to the ski fields.
It certainly is helpful to get outdoors and go for a brisk walk. After a while you do warm up somewhat and feel better for having made the effort.
Like any activity, you mostly have to take that determined step to actually do it. And, so often we are glad we did.
So, set a goal, get out and about and come back refreshed.
It’s also easier to warm up that way than turning on the heaters and shivering until the house warms up!
Then make a commitment to repeat the process at least every other day. That’s what we call self growth; doing something on a regular basis that you might not otherwise do.
Who knows where you might go next?
I don’t care what the naysayers rabbit on about. Whether it is labeled Law of Attraction or personal development or self improvement, whatever. Having a desire to achieve something, or aspiring toward excellence requires having a goal or target and a plan of action that moves you closer toward realisation [ of the desire].
Some of our most successful Olympians will attest to that.
Stephen Covey would say: ‘Begin with the end in mind.’
Napoleon Hill wrote a blueprint for success.
It’s why there are Life Coaches, as there are sports coaches. It is part of the human condition to aspire to something better – whatever that might mean to you.

I received an enquiry through my other web site, which did not appear to be a genuine request for a coaching interview.
In fact it looked like I was being spammed.
After swapping a couple of emails with the sender I soon realised that here was an innovative way to benefit charity.
As a Life Coach I encourage my clients to explore as many options as possible in their quest to realise their dream through their own self-development.
So, out of the ‘ashes’ of a message about to go in the virtual bin, I agreed to promote the idea.
See the brief article below.
And if you know anybody who would like to change their life for the better point them to this web site.
After all it costs nothing to ask!
Sacrifice, Love and Beauty
The sacrifice we make as mothers is HUGE! We often focus on the needs of our children whom we love unconditionally and forget that we have needs also. We are women first, we need to see the beauty we have forgotten, to remember we are gorgeous and amazing!
Well, for twelve lucky ladies we are going to capture this beauty and turn this into a beautiful calendar, which will be made available to purchase. The proceeds of the sale of each calendar will be donated to one lucky winner’s favourite charity.
Go to Sacrifice.Love. Beauty on the left at the address below.
