If we ourselves remain angry and then sing world peace, it has little meaning. First, our individual self must learn peace. This we can practice. Then we can teach the rest of the world.

As human beings we experience fundamentally the same emotions (sadness, happiness, guilt, shame, joy, anger etc), however what triggers the emotion is different for each and everyone of us. We all have an individual bank/database of experiences that shape what these emotions may represent to us. For example, different things may trigger happiness or shame for me, than it does for a colleague and visa versa. Recognising individual differences and how our conditioning and perceptions affect our emotions is key to us having more healthy lives and relationships. #emotions#relationships#corporateathlete#workplacewellness#theperformanceclub#tpc#selfawareness#conditioning#perception#powerofyou
We see the world through our view of the world–our ‘perception’ of the world. Our opinions, beliefs, experiences and even our mood at that moment will shape how we interpret what we see, hear and feel.
We know this is true, and sometimes we choose to ignore it because it doesn’t support our case. The trick is to be present and aware, to observe and then not attach anything to the event. “It is what it is”, just an event.
The problem is that we then go crazy in our own minds trying to fit an explanation to the event, and our perception of that event will be influenced by all those things I mentioned above–beliefs, experiences (both conscious and subconscious) and like I said, our mood.

So, what can we do about it?

What a Year This Has Been for us as a Family!
Such major changes uprooting life as we knew it and moving to a new life by the sea!!
It has been filled with surrender, struggle, challenge and discomfort but oh how it was all worth it!!😍❤️
We are so proud of our kids and how well they have embraced the change and this year truly proves all we really need to feel safe and secure is each other!
We love it here, it has instantly felt like home .... just right!
I've never felt "new" and I feel like I've lived here forever.... I guess that's what it feels like when you are where you're meant to be!
I adore this family pic from the amazing @colouroflifephotography, Kellie is such a talented photographer and has captured our family pics in the past too!
The Day of this shoot was perfect! Blue skies and sunshine until ..... our shoot!
At the time of the shoot the sky turned grey, black even and the heavens started to rumble! A perfect reflection of our life this year and the day we had just experienced!! Uncertain, Dark, stormy....🤣🤣 Up there for timing!!👌
But also beautiful filled with love and each other!
This is what I love the most about Kellie's photography, the universe and perception!
At the time all I could see was black skies and a storm coming but all I felt was contentment , love and a trust that everything was perfect!
This picture to me perfectly represents what I felt not what was visible and that is what makes it so magic!!
How you show up offline and online says a lot about you as a Brand. Everything you do, say or write affects your brand positively or negatively.
You have to consistently show up every day to gain visibility and credibility because people can't get to know you and connect with you if they don't know you exist.
Have a clear and distinctive brand so people understand quickly what you are all about. Don't try to be too many things all at once especially if there is no correlation between the different aspects of you that you are putting out there.
Synergy and simplicity works best. For me, being a speaker, author, Total Transformation Coach, Talk Show Hostess and Beauty Entrepreneur are all connective because everything I do aims at helping people building self confidence and be true to themselves.
If it doesn't fit, I don't do it for now because it will misrepresent what and who I am as a personal brand and it is out of sync with my core message and mission.
Show up and keep spreading your message. Don't worry about the numbers count because that will throw you off your game. Deliver high quality content and value every single time and do it from your heart, the emotional centre and I guarantee you someone will surely connect with your message and join your tribe. Global impact starts one message at a time built over consistency and conviction.
Be a consistent brand.

На самом деле, то как мы определяем и классифицируем людей на «хороших» и «плохих» - довольно занятный процесс. И, разумеется, важный. Так уж сложилось, что мыслим мы, в большинстве своем, категориями бинарных оппозиций: черное - белое, сладкое - горькое и, конечно, хороший - плохой, и так далее. Да-да, все относительно, но тем не менее.
Очень часто мерой в подобных весах служит наше ощущение, наше восприятие человека. Данное ощущение выражается в виде личных и субъективных «нравится» и «не нравится». И вот здесь уже начинаются подводные камни: как понять, не мешаешь ли ты одно с другим? Потому как очень часто мы занимаемся подменой понятий и ведем себя как незрелые редиски. Иными словами, руководствуясь банальной антипатией, мы по умолчанию навешиваем на человека ярлычок «плохой». Чем это плохо? Да всем.
Согласитесь, что с человеком, которого вы для себя определили как плохого и с тем, кто вам просто не нравится в силу своих личных особенностей и других обстоятельств, вы ведете себя по-разному.
Рассуждая со своей колокольни, я бы сказала, что с человеком, получившим окраску «плохой», я максимально сведу контакт к минимуму. Конечно, если придется, полезу конфликтовать. Человек, который мне просто несимпатичен в силу своих характеристик, не сможет понять или различить моего неприятия, потому как мое общение с ним будет таким же, как и с остальными людьми - нейтральным и, если уместно, приобретет позитивный оттенок.
Иначе говоря, не разобравшись в том, как мы воспринимаем того или иного человека, мы рискуем как минимум упустить интересного собеседника, а как максимум - можем несправедливо обидеть другого человека, что, в зависимости от контекста, может или забыться, или стать триггером куда большей проблемы.
Личное восприятие и его интерпретации, какими бы они ни были, никак не определяют объект. То есть, человек может тебе не нравиться сколь угодно, но это не делает его плохим.
I remember years ago when I first came across this pose. I literally couldn't imagine having the strength or coordination to get into it. It seemed like a lofty idea far far away from my practice.
This is one of my favorite aspects of a yoga practice. Yoga eventually reveals how our perceptions of ourselves and our reality change. The impossible literally becomes the possible. And our perceptions are constantly shattered as we continue to practice and grow.
I'm also thankful that this practice and specifically this #yogachallenge has caused me to pause and reflect. And now I think about the poses that still seem impossible in my practice, and I know that one day if my body allows in my practice continues, that pose well assimilate into my practice and my perceptions will shift once more.
Day 11 of the #collateralpractice with @cyogalife is the ever strong, ever graceful, ever beautiful asana dedicated to Sage Visvamitra. 🙏

Always amazes me and equally perplexes me that people will go to the ends of the earth to show up and rise for others but will not do the same for themselves, especially in knowing that we are ALL equally worthy and deserving!
Keeping your own well filled - overflowing with love for your self, working on yourself, growing yourself, challenging yourself, evolving yourself is what is required to emit, permeate to others that which essentially moves the collective forward as a whole - the highest vibrational energy we all say we want for our children and our grandchildren.
We invest monies into education, retirement plans, savings, financial portfolios - scrimp and sacrifice to buy that vehicle or that house or that dream vacation but we often do not see ourselves, our minds, our souls as worthy of that same sacrifice or investment. Ironic.
I am manifesting and setting my intentions on 2019 being a more meaningful, purposeful, joy-filled year for everyone!
You deserve it! It's your birthright! World Peace derives from inner peace. Inner peace derives from self-love. Love to ALL! ❤️ #Grateful#Mindset#Focus#Clarity#Discipline#Vision#Mission#Energy#Synergy#Vibe#Tribe#Growth#Shift#Goals#Intentions#Fortitude#Resiliency#Tenacity#CEO#Entrepreneur#Perseverance#Passions#Results#Standards#Persistence#Relentless#Perception#Perspective#Purpose#LivingFearlessly
“Don't be ashamed to weep; 'tis right to grieve. Tears are only water, and flowers, trees, and fruit cannot grow without water. But there must be sunlight also. A wounded heart will heal in time, and when it does, the memory and love of our lost ones is sealed inside to comfort us.” ― Brian Jacques. My eyes have cried many tears over the last week and a bit - something I would've tried to suppress in the past in favour of being 'strong'. To me, being able to share your emotions is the new strong - regardless of the place (like when you're sitting in the middle seat of a plane for 15 and a half hours from LA to Melbourne) I'm in. Honour the tears as they come, they're watering your heart and your Soul and helping you to grow from the sadness of the experience. I like to think that they're also watering the memories of my loved one so that they can continue to grow with me too🌳🌱☀️😰💦
Hidden stories 🤫
I edit all of my photos (obviously) before I post, however I never remove the important details, whether they are big or small... and to discover them it requires you to look deeper into the image. By removing the colour, we are left with only the raw details, which tend to make us feel something, usually uncomfortable or sad, maybe happy or nostalgic, but the connections we make are very important and should never be neglected.
Just a little food for thought 😉
