“It was as if this opportunity was meant for her. The timing and the availability all seemed to fit perfectly into her plans for the future.”
That’s how this chapter opens. I have been working with the college where I studied for the last few months in an administrative capacity on a casual basis and so when a room became available to practice from late last month, I was asked if I would like to come aboard as a practitioner. It was an obvious choice. The college is known as THE place to go to study kinesiology here in Melbourne and is known as THE place to go for a Kinesiology session and houses some of the most qualified practitioners in the world. Absolutely! I’d love to practice here!
So today marks the beginning of my practice in Hawthorn. It is an expansion on my already flourishing clinic spaces in the CBD and Mitcham but I have a feeling that this is going to be the space that really super charges my Kinesiology and clinic.
Here’s to an amazing 2014 and a fun, successful chapter two!
Such a wise man, that Dr. Seuss. So many people assume that they are not creative when in fact they don’t even try. Or they simply think that they can’t paint or draw. But being creative is so much more than a pretty canvas or drawing.
Creativity is in almost every thing you do. It’s in creating a meal and presenting well on the plate. It’s pouring a latte with a decorative symbol or image in the froth. It’s wrapping a gift, writing in a card and putting your outfit together each morning.
There are so many ways to be creative in life. Don’t limit yourself to the canvas – your creativity may lie somewhere where you least expected it to be.
How often do we say “yes” to things that people ask us to do? I say “yes” all too often and then wonder why I haven’t had the time to do what I want to do.
A friend of mine said to me the other day that in order to get to where you want to be, you need be sure that you’re taking yourself and your dreams as seriously as you take everyone else’s dreams. And that’s a pretty big ask for some people (including myself). This friend of mine then progressed with the notion that you need to put your end goal or dream “out there”, write it down, create a vision board, put a charm on a bracelet, whatever it is that reminds you of what your dream is. Next, write out the steps you need to take in order to achieve your dream. Then, when someone asks you to do something for them, think of your dream, look at your vision board and ask yourself:
1. Will doing this bring me closer to my dream or
2. Will doing this take me further away from my dream?
Being aware of what brings you closer (or further away from) your dream, gives you power of choice. You can actively choose to do the things that draw your dream closer, rather than sabotaging it before you’ve even started. Knowing that your dreams are just as important as anyone else’s is something which, once realised, gives you the power to make your dreams come to fruition.
