MGS 17 – Purpose

Purpose People!

We talk a lot about finding our purpose, but what about living with purpose? It’s what helps us activate our potential.

In this episode of Mini Growth Sessions, I share the two key aspects that influence our ability to do things with purpose.

You don’t need a purpose to live your life, but your experience of life will certainly be more enriched if you live with it.

And here’s a bonus … Purpose + People = Purple! :)

As always, be brave, think big, stand tall.

Cheers, Mich

MGS 16 – Mindset

Focus your mind!

Whether we can, or can’t, do well at something new, it’s all in our heads. Having the right mental attitude helps us to excel, and activates more of our potential. In Episode 16, I share three types of “mindset” that can help us improve when we’re doing something new.

If you want to find out more about setting yourself up for growth, I highly recommend reading Carol Dweck’s book “Mindset”. We can be limited by the beliefs associated with a fixed mindset, but the world becomes our oyster when we set our minds for growth.

MGS 15 – Courage

What to do about Fear

Growing and learning requires that we develop the courage to make friends with our fear.

To get on with doing what we were meant to in this world, we need to learn to become brave.

I wrote an article about this for the Do Lectures over on Medium. In it, I share three ways to help you overcome your fear.

Episode 15 of Mini Growth Sessions is a quick summary of these same three steps.

Be brave, think big, stand tall.

MGS 14 – Optimism

Power up your positive!

Living on the bright side is way better for our wellbeing than we might realise. Episode 14 is about how to bring our force for good to the fore.

Further reading:

Feeling positive really is good for us, as being optimistic can help us combat heart disease.

Despite her own hardships, Helen Keller wrote extensively about seeing positivity in the world.  Her essay on Optimism, written in 1903, is well worth a read. Here’s a quote to get you started:

“No pessimist ever discovered the secret of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven for the human spirit.” ~ Helen Keller

Martin Seligman is known as the father of Positive Psychology. He has written several books on optimism and happiness. I found his book ‘Learned Optimism’ particularly helpful as a learning tool during a turning point in my life.

Remember, there’s no such thing as half full or half empty … our cup is always FULL of hope and possibility.

As always, be brave, think big, stand tall.

Cheers, Mich

MGS 13 – Confidence

It’s all about ‘Can’…

It’s within our power to manage our confidence. We do it by matching our beliefs to our actions.

In this week’s episode of Mini Growth Sessions, I share three steps we can use to build and exercise our confidence.

Further reading:

If we know our weak points, then we can work on them…

  • Here’s a more detailed description of self-confidence, with  some super tips on how to develop it.
  • Research indicates that men tend to feel more confident than women. This article (and the video within) has some interesting insights.

Until next time, be brave, think big, stand tall.

Cheers, Mich :)

MGS 11 – Cadence

Cadence is about achieving rhythm in your life

It is far better for us (and more realistic) than striving for the elusive work/life balance.

In episode 11, I reconnect with my inner Madonna and use a choice word to share my opinion on the hype around the elusive goal of creating “balance”. Sensitive viewers cover your ears, or if you’re ready to take charge,  then join me in creating a new movement!

If you want to find out more about cadence, I wrote a Medium post about it here.

Remember, be brave, think big, stand tall.

MGS10 – Love

The thing about Love…

Looking after ourselves includes loving ourselves in spite of our flaws. To care for and support others well, we first need to have a love of ‘I’. Find out more in Episode 10.

MGS9 – Breathe

Breath is life…

Breathing is fundamental to our state of wellbeing. In episode 9, we explore how we can use breathing to change our mind and body for the better.

Practising conscious breath is one of the most effective ways to change your physiology and your emotional state. It starts with one inhale and one exhale.

MGS8 – Move

A bit of rhythm and moves…

Our third fundamental self-care habit is all about the moves. In episode 8, I share quick ways to incorporate movement into your workdays.

This article highlights several reasons why movement trumps sedentary habits.

Now take your moves to the next level by getting in on some of this Madagascar ‘Move It’ action. You’ll thank me later.
