Nikki’s Tip of the Week – week-ending  23rd  September 2017 & upcoming events.

811 Views 0 Comment

To coin a phrase from Oprah Winfrey, “What I Know For Sure” is that if we stop learning we stop growing and if we stop growing we die. 

I also know, without a shadow of a doubt, that without challenge there is no growth, and because of this I have made it a daily priority.  I have to challenge myself on a daily basis.  It does not always make me very popular with myself you understand, but the reality is that I have come to enjoy my daily learning.

That said, I have also come to realise that the ‘learning’ is absolutely useless if I don’t implement what I have learnt and this usually makes (well for me anyway) the challenge of the day.

Over the last couple of weeks what I am learning with Peter Carruthers in terms of the PoPI Act has been invaluable (the offer is still below) and I have just signed up for Telana Simpson’s course through Boss Lady (sorry guys this one is for the gals) as well as another 10 courses that will (should) take me a year to complete and the great thing about it is that they have been hugely discounted . . .  for now.

Getting back to “What I know for Sure” . . .  I know that since I have embraced this ‘learning’ venture in 2014 and put it into practice, I have grown as a person, I have grown my business and my life has been enriched, not only by what I have learnt, but what I am now able to give back when I mentor and teach.

I am grateful and I am blessed and I know that going forward, many more rich rewards await me.

Remember, without challenge there is no growth so challenge yourself daily.  What better way than to start right now  . . .  today.

Anyway . . .  on a lighter note, but still being proactive.

Peter is still doing his introductory webinar’s on a Tuesday evenings, all the details are below this weeks’ article.  I sincerely hope that you join him –  it is for free at this time.

And one for the ladies (sorry guys) –  I signed up, why don’t you?

Have a look at what Telana Simpson in collaboration with Boss Lady is offering –  just below Peter’s offering.

Here’s the deal . . .

Please feel free to engage with me, or not.  Please feel free to send me your own snippets of information, early warnings, appropriate funnies and what have you, to share with other like-minded individuals, entrepreneurs and start-ups.

I hope and trust that you will enjoy the journey with me.

INSPIRATION – What are You Creating Today?

By Nikki Viljoen of N Viljoen Consulting CC

Tony Robbins says “Beliefs have the power to create and the power to destroy.  Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.”

When I first read this statement, it kind of took me by surprise and in a way it actually challenged me.

I sat back for a few moments and thought about it.  I looked at several occurrences in my life that have had a profound impact on me –  one way or another, and then I looked at what ‘could’ have happened had I not made the choices that I did make.

Make no mistake, not all of the choices that I made were the right ones and even with those I was able to avoid complete disaster, again by the choices that I then made.

So the reality, well my reality at any rate, is that I had the ability to become completely ‘disempowered’ or completely inspired.

In the instances where I made the right choice for me, and I became inspired, I have remained inspired, clear in what my ‘end goals’ are and comfortable in the knowledge that I have made the correct choice, in order for me to fulfil and live my purpose.

In the instances where the choice that I made was not necessarily in my own best interests, this was quickly highlighted in the difficulties that I began to experience.  The more I made the wrong choices, the greater the difficulty and the harder the lesson.

As I started to make the right decision, the easier my life became again.

That said, with my ‘end goal’ in mind, I am presented with many opportunities as well as many challenges along the way.  The choices I make are intrinsically linked to the quality of my life.

Irrespective of all the internal and external issues that affect us all on a daily basis, I am responsible and therefore accountable for me, for my well-being and my happiness and whilst there may be many individuals who share the journey of my life with me, they are not and can never be, responsible for who I am or who I may become.

That alone is my choice, my decision, my action, my responsibility.

I have made my decision and continue to make the choices daily that move me closer to my goals. I am fully aware of them and engaged in them and although there are times that my choice is made without thought or deliberation and may in all probability need correcting along the way – I do know that I am, at the very least, going in the right direction.  Right for me that is . .

What about you?  Are you going in the direction that is right for you?

Are you conscious of the choices that you make and the consequences of those choices or are you wandering through life without purpose or direction?

Only you will know . . .

Introducing Inner Coaching 2.0

[be brave] + [be real] + [be true] = [be you]

After over a decade of coaching and training people, and being coached myself and learning so much, I’ve rebranded and repackaged what I offer based on what has worked the most magic for my clients since I started Inner Coaching in late 2004.

This is for me the next step in my evolution as a coach.  I still have a strong focus on communication and having the conversations that count.  And so far, those on their new journeys with me are getting results sooner and having even more fun as we work through the [be brave], [be real] and [be true] programmes.

Have a look at the my exciting website and the new journeys I offer, as a Courage Coach, and let me know your thoughts?  I’d love to hear from you!
