Are You At The Point Of No Return?

There is a point at which everything becomes simple and there is no longer any question of choice, because all you have staked will be lost if you look back. Life's point of no return." -Dag Hammarskjold

There comes a time in your life when the resolve to act on your ideas is so compelling that you can no longer afford to be complacent. It is at this time that you decide to overcome every obstacle in your path, push yourself hard and do whatever it takes to experience the success you have always desired!

This is the moment of action?the moment when you reach the point of no return!

It is not always easy to turn an idea into reality or even continue the process of fulfilling it. The power of sticking with the dream to the end is often lacking and is constantly tested by many obstacles. The are usually many insecurities to deal with, financial and social pressures, courage to be gathered, time to be invested, different hats to be worn and roles to be played as you strive to accomplish your goals.

The difficulty of the task and the overwhelming responsibility of what needs to be done to ensure success is usually enough to dissuade you from continuing on the journey to success.

However, if you really want to accomplish something, you have to greatly desire the prize, focus on the goal and on the finish line. You must be willing to take risks, great and small and plunge yourself into the experience and journey of achievement. You must reach the point of no return!

Your answers to the questions below will help you discover whether you have reached the point of no return in pursuit of achievement.

As you consider your idea, dream, goal or project?

Are you at the point where you are ready to give it 100% or nothing at all?

Is staying on neutral ground, stagnating and inaction a bad idea?

Do you feel that you can't just give up or stop the activity until you complete it?

Have you have gone too far to stop and invested too much to surrender?

Is your argument to win more persuasive than your argument to lose?

Is your decision to advance more compelling than your decision to retreat?

Answering yes, to at least three of the above questions, is a sign that you have reached the point of no return and are ready to take your idea, dream, goal or life to a whole new level. Your attitude is right and you are ready to make a run for the finish line!

To Be an Outstanding Communicator Your Voice Really Matters
"We often refuse to accept an idea merely because the tone of voice in which it has been expressed is unsympathetic to us." -Friedrich Nietzsche This is one of the quotes I have on my office "inspiration board," which reminds me every morning to sound my best on teleconferencing calls. We all wish to be "outstanding communicators" who can persuade people of our ideas and our visions of a new strategy.

The Four Agreements and Why I Take Them Personally
On the surface, the "Four Agreements" seem innocent, perhaps even thoughtful and wise. But then again, I would be a fool if I didn't always want to do my best; I am well aware that assumptions put an "ass" between "u" and "me"; and I have been teaching kids forever about how important "being impeccable with their word" is. As a navigator of life's river, this advice feels obvious. But when I come to "Don't Take Anything Personally," I can't help shaking my head at the simplicity of a journey that navigates on this "personal truth."

This discomfort can come in many forms - lost time, longing for "the way things used to be," the pain of learning a new process and, of course, the feelings of inadequacy...

How To Achieve Your Career Resolution
Years ago I was talking with someone who was training to run a marathon. But as he got deeper into training, he found himself continually more worn out - not from the running, but from trying to keep up with all the other things he still had going on in his life! Simply put, there wasn't enough room in his life for his new goal of running a marathon and all the other hobbies, obligations and responsibilities he was already involved in.

Formulation of Coaching Themes
The Coaching Programme is based on the purpose of the client's coaching intervention. This is recorded in a form of a coaching theme or topic. We should not coach without any coaching purpose. Once the theme is determined, the coach and the client formulate the coaching goal, and objectives. Whereas the coaching theme is responsive to the challenges and the client's desires, there are some common themes that may even be considered to be special coaching areas. The coach is informed by the context of the area and the client's perspectives. In this article I am addressing such common and generic themes, namely sport personality, community development, life & personality development, youth development, entrepreneurship development, relationship management, celebrity status, diversity management & inclusion, management & leadership, change management & transformation, and executive business.

Changing Limiting Self-Beliefs
The beliefs you have about yourself and life are fundamental in shaping your reality for better or worse, and affect all areas of your life, impacting the levels of success, happiness, and love you create and allow. If you believe you're not good enough or don't deserve, for example, you may experience painful accompanying emotions and realities that reflect that. Negative self-beliefs thwart your self-image and cloud and shroud the you within, skewing your true, happy, loving nature. You think you can't and you're probably right; you think you can and you're definitely right. You are what you think you are.
