I was talking with Suze the other day and we were discussing a motivation course she is taking called The Thrive Programme. She discovered it a few weeks back and liked the sound of it and l encouraged her to take the course, but to take the 1 on 1 coach instructed course over just that of the textual only course, as she had been struggling with concentration. A human coach will help and inspire her motivation. I put in 50% of the course cost to encourage her to not procrastinate – l mean we can all do that.
Only today did l finally purchase my blogging/marketing course and why did l dilly dally? Because l wanted to make sure first that l could take a study course and write in two different blogs daily. The study will be the easy part, whilst working with daily posts in two blogs l think may have been the hardest part. Additionally, l needed to strengthen my time management and multitasking skill set again as the study periods allocated will act as the third blog that will be launching later this year.
The 3 Sides 2 1 as the second blog is just taking an easy path at present whilst l acclimatise to writing in two blogs and once l become more used to that routine, l can then broaden that blog’s topic range. The new course has 90 modules and will take me maybe 3 – 5 months to complete and action so l can peruse those this coming weekend before l start it all officially on Monday of next week.
The Thrive Programme, for those readers who don’t press the link is about enriching your life and your enthusiasm and your motivations for living your life again, finding purpose, finding direction, and more importantly finding ‘you again’. Suze had hit very low points this year following her cancer and the aggressive treatment of late last year with depression and an all-round melancholy and loss of control about where she should be heading.
It happens to us all at one point if not more in our lives. Suze wanted to do more with her life, l can relate to that having gone through a similar journey myself and still going through the rediscovery phases even now. The Thrive Programme should help her to boost her self-esteem again and believe in her abilities once more. All going well, and she has now been training on this for her first full week, she will feel empowered once more and has expressed an interest in becoming a Thrive coach which would be brilliant.
Anyway, we were discussing ‘beliefs’ because the programme looks into great depth at the subject of belief and some of you may recall, this month’s edition of 12 Bloggerz! July 2021 was hyperfocused on the topic of Belief. But she was talking, and l was listening to her progress after only a short while [we talked Wednesday and she started Monday], l came to understand and acknowledge that this course was having quite the impact on her thinking and thoughts.
This is good news in my eyes, because as l have said before, l can motivate, inspire, and enthuse many people BUT l cannot achieve that with Suze – because my approach is too bold or too direct or whatever and Suze needs to be challenged differently. The programme was doing just that and the reason being is because it was making her think about her inner emotions and family and back to this word again … but her beliefs about many things. Thrive challenges everything on that level.
However, as l listened l began to ask myself a question ………. which l give to you all now with very little further explanation … because everyone who reads this question will translate and interpret exclusive to them and their particular belief system.
There are many things l believe in ….. l consider myself an open-minded person and allow my mind to look at all possibilities however unusual or bizarre they might appear to others and including myself …… also, l have led an extraordinary life to date even in some of my quieter times my life hasn’t really been boring. I have seen things others have not and would NOT want to believe in – just because something is true or false, doesn’t instantly make it so for people – make of that as you will.
But then l started to think deeper and asked myself this question …….. When does it all start to really matter? Now l ask you the same question and allow you to interpret as you so wish – am l referring to happiness, wasting time, family, relationships, buying a house, having kids, fulfilling dreams, having the dream job, taking the right holiday or vacation, allowing life to pass by, not achieving anything or simply what really matters in life and how do you prioritise your focus?
So, l ask you all …
When does it all start to really matter?
