Your life in 7 days

I’ve written lots of articles and blogs around procrastination and recently I’ve had to take note of my own issues around stopping short of doing something just because I know I can’t make it as perfect as I’d like, sometimes good enough really is good enough!

I’ve also written recently about the death of Wayne Dyer and how that amazing man with his legacy has inspired so many people to follow their dreams – his phrase ‘Don’t die with the music still in you’ is something I trot out regularly especially to clients who tell me they know they want to write  a book, start their business, become the founder of a charity…

Nothing brings this home more than the analogy of ‘Your Life in 7 days’  Years ago a normal lifespan would be seen as ‘3 score years and 10 – meaning we will hopefully make it till the age of 70 – (of course most of us hope to live a lot longer but bear with me!)

So if each decade represents a day, and we are born on a Monday, most people reading this will be over twenty so onto Wednesday already, some of us are into Thursday or even (ahem) Friday or into the weekend ….

It really focuses your mind as to how you are spending your time, if there’s something you know you want to do, when will you start it ?  If not now – when ?  Having explained this to my hubby he sometimes says to me (especially if I’m asking him to do something for me rather than himself)…’.darling I’m on the Friday of my life, I need to do XXX’    Of course he is right, we all must prioritize what it is we are really here to do, define your purpose and get cracking.

By the way if you are on ‘Sunday’ I wouldn’t worry about that one bit, the great Louise Hay is 89 (way past the sell-by 70) and she is rocking (and recently learnt a new skill of playing the piano)    Heres hoping we will all make it to that ripe age and beyond, still feeling young, still feeling energized by living our purpose and passion, but why wait to see what age you make it to ?  If you know what you are meant to do, start right away.  remember you don’t have to get it right, you DO have to get it going.

Don’t Die with the Music in You

I was sad to hear recently of the passing of Wayne Dyer, as a Hay House author I had met him and heard him speak several times and was always struck by his humble yet inspirational persona.   He has regularly been listed as one of the ten most spiritually influential people in the world and last year Mind Body Spirit magazine ranked him at number eight.    Wayne was a best-selling author of over 40 books including his first book Your Erroneous Zones, which is believed to be one of the best selling books of all time, (an estimated 35 million copies sold around the world).

Hay House said of Wayne – ‘He offered a way of being that was at the heart of change, a way of experiencing the world so that your focus is internal — on the I AM — and connected to the Source energy of creation.  When we move from “what’s in it for me” to genuinely putting our energy and attention into visualizing ourselves in a capacity of serving, the doors to fulfilment open for us, when we extend ourselves in a spirit of giving, helping, or loving, we are acting as God acts’.

People giving tribute to him included Oprah Winfrey and Ellen DeGenres. Fellow motivational speaker Tony Robbins also wrote on twitter: ‘Wayne Dyer has passed away today. For those of us who loved him it’s sad, but he knew death was a transition. We send love for his next adventure.’  Many tributes mentioned that Wayne had no fear of dying and I must confess I envy him that.

Many fans called him Mr Motivation, one thing Wayne was brilliant at was helping people to overcome feelings of guilt and inadequacy and get started on what they wanted to do, where they wanted their light to shine in the world, one of the phrases made famous by Wayne was ‘Don’t die with the music still in you’    He certainly didn’t and his huge catalogue of work remains to inspire us.  It’s a great reminder to us all if there’s something you have always wanted to do, be it write a book,  start a charity climb a mountain, if not now….when?

Janey in FORBES – ‘Getting your Message Across’

Media now means much more than it used to. “If you want to use any kind of platform to get your message out there, you need the right skills to get on that platform. You need to be prepared to attract the opportunity and then maximise it.” But it’s also possible to miss that opportunity: being media-ready takes preparation. “One of the reasons I started working with clients on media training is that, as an interviewer and co-host on BBC Radio 2, I see this from both sides of the microphone,” says Lee Grace. “I’ve seen guests come in to do a pre-recorded interview that would have gone out to eight million people – but was dropped because they weren’t prepared.”
