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!

Having a Child-like Spirit

Phil Evans

Even though there may be days when you feel that facing the day with the spirit of a child is impossible; it is one of those challenges that when faced head-on - will reap you rewards beyond your wildest dreams!
Yes ... displaying that spirit of eagerness and adventure and certainty - will allow you to conquer the day; and allow you to create absolute miracles in what you achieve!
Allow yourself to play; to take risks; to abandon any fears and doubts; and your greatest thrill will be when you learn that you can develop a 'habit' of rising in the morning and facing each day with a child-like spirit!
It just takes time, practise, and lots of courage and determination, to get to that point!
Have faith in your ability to achieve this worthwhile goal; and remember to feel grateful for the rewards that will come your way.

Become The Change ...

Phil Evans

Yes, this can be one of our biggest personal challenges folks!  
Most of us wish to see positive and peaceful change in our lives; and in the world in general; and like everything else in life .... it all begins within!
I remember being told about 15 years ago that the world is a reflection of my inner self; how I feel, and what I see around me every day, is simply a mirror image of me.
Hmmmmm .... at the time I completely resisted that possibility!
No way could I feel that bad about myself; or within myself; because what I saw ever day was horrid!  Absolutely horrible!
This couldn't be a reflection of my inner self .... I thought.  It took me about another 18 months to actually 'get it' - and begin to accept that I could begin to work on those aspects that were reflecting life back at me so brutally.
The best example of this principle of life is this: If you're in a bad mood while driving; what sort of experience do you have?  If you're in a bad mood while looking for a parking space (anywhere) what happens?  Yes - you'll experience every mongrel who ever drove a motor vehicle in a bad way .... all round you!  You'll get every red light!  And yes - you'll keep just missing car parking spaces until it drives you to park illegally - and then you'll get a parking ticket!  This NOT a maybe; it is guaranteed!  Every time!
So - take note and be that magic change you wish to see in others - and in the world itself.
It all begins within ....

Believe in Yourself

Phil Evans


One of our biggest challenges in life is to believe in SELF!

To believe that we can do whatever we set out to do; and do it well.

So many of us have listened to our critics along the way; and learnt to believe that we are not worthy – nor are we capable! It is time to smash that belief if you are carrying it around with you; smash it - or simply put it down and walk away, leaving it to wallow in its own despair without you to feed it any longer.

Powerful stuff to actually realise this – and then let go of it.
