Dare to Explore; Dream; Discover ...

Phil Evans

Exploring means taking risks!
Dreaming means to get outside all of the boundaries that you've been taught about 'being safe'; and daring to think outside the square!
Discovering is when you combine exploring with dreaming; and actually find that elusive destination that everyone else thought was out of reach!
So dare to take those necessary risks; and find the winds that will take you to where you want to be!
Throw away hesitation and procrastination; just do it; you'll be glad that you did!

Enthusiasm Leads to Great Results!

Phil Evans

Enthusiasm ... we can see it; feel it; and sometimes even taste it in the air; when someone else is has it!  But what about when we want it; miss it; desire to have it; ... desperately need it?  
What is it; where is it; how do we find it when we need it?
It is attitude ... pure energy; and it is an inner thing that some of us can tap into all the time; but others have to work hard to even slightly experience it!
Without it - life's challenges become almost impossible!
Without it - great things are simply out of reach - not achievable!
Without it - it is far too easy to continually think and feel - "what's the point"?
It is an inner feeling that is driven by the desire to achieve; and is usually one of those things that we've been taught to do from childhood; of course we can do it!
Those of us who struggle with it have also been taught from childhood to not get too excited about anything; 'cause it probably won't happen; so don't get your hopes up.  
Sound or feel familiar?
Then it's time to challenge that inner voice that tells you to not get excited; and summon your courage to lift your expectations and show the enthusiasm anyway!
Because ... nothing great was ever achieved without it! 

Courage Doesn't Always Roar!

Phil Evans

That is so right ... courage is not about obvious signs of visibly roaring out loud; courage is usually hidden and quite deep within ourselves!  Others are aware of it; they just know that we have it; we don't have to 'put it on display' ... it is a knowing that people have about us!
It is often the hardest bit of ourselves to be aware of, and acknowledge to ourselves!
Not unlike any personal change that we go through; we are often the last to see it, or even know that we've achieved it!
Everyone else knows; and sees it; but we are often unaware of our own achievements at personal development levels.
Best example: we get a new puppy; we are with the puppy every day; someone who we haven't seen for 3 months shows up and comments on the puppy .... "wow - hasn't Snoopy grown since we saw him last"!
We haven't really noticed the growth; not really ... it's just happening.
Courage, and our own personal growth, are often similar; we are often the last ones to see and feel it.

Be more aware; praise and acknowledge 'self'; reward yourself for your various levels of achievement.  And, stay aware of your own courage; which may not be roaring to the world as an obvious part of who you are; but it is an essential part of your character!

The Decision to Try

Phil Evans

Every single journey begins with that first step!

Even the huge ones begin with just one step; pretty much a decision to try!

Every single accomplishment does begin with a choice; and that decision to try!

That decision to ‘try’ must be followed by a choice to actually ‘do’ something; a choice of taking action!

Trying .... and taking action; are two very different things! Remember that.

Example: Firstly, try to stand up; and now, actually stand up.

I rest my case ....

Aim High

Phil Evans

It is just too easy to set our sights on achievements that are easily do-able; as that way we are more likely to succeed.


All too often the fear of failure controls our ability to aim high.

Remember that if we do aim for the moon and miss, we still end up amongst the stars!

I have always loved that quote; it just makes sense!

Challenging but realistic! For me it takes away all the pressure of having to reach the moon first go.
