Why Don't They Teach This In Our Schools

Last night, yes a Friday night, 7pm was my son's Final game of the season.

First time in 4 years Newlands College had been top of the league.

The young men were naturally nervous but they knew they were the better team.

They are a great bunch of lads, really polite, respectful.

I went along and watched the game...

It was 'rowdy'....the Opposing team supporters stood on the left hand side and made a lot of noise, and our team stood on the right

(I was in the middle - have to be different lol).

I noticed how dirty the play was, intense....lots of jozzling and pushing, its not like that so much in football (Soccer for anyone not from the UK)...

I was very proud to see my son help a player up that he had as part of the game, tripped up...

Unfortunately our team lost... They drew at the end 3-3...and it went to penalties...

The referee, who was part of the opposing team, was not fair and did not treat each shot in the same way....the game went to the other side...

The boys were devastated...they had been the best team..

However it was what my son told me afterwards was what really hit me...

We came home around 9pm,  he didn't want to talk, 

In fact, he was so upset and enraged that he took himself off to the gym....

The next morning we talked about the game...

He showed me his bruises, it really had been a dirty game....

However, what he told me next suprised me...

The opposing team supporters (which happens to be an all boys school)

had been shouting abuse from the side lines....

They called my son various names the whole time

They shouted abuse at various players...

When it came to half time, some of the younger players, asked to come off

'I just can't take the abuse' they said....

I found this so sad...

What are we teaching kids in school?

Personally I think Self Development should be mandatory like English and Maths

We need to be teaching them Mental toughness...

My son told me he just smiled at the kids who were name calling 

(I was soo proud)

We need to be teaching these kids they can do Anything 

That Life Can be Tough but not to let the 'buggers' get you down...

I have been through soo many challenges in my life and without a doubt my personal growth has helped me...

Bullying is 'rife' in schools....

It is there because neither the victim or the bully have been 'empowered'

This is what schools are not teaching our kids

School won't teach - Don't Compare Yourself to Others

School won’t Teach your Child – Setting Goals

 

School won’t Teach your Child – Visualize your Results

 

School won’t Teach your Child – Your Attitude Creates your Reality

School won’t Teach your Child – The 80/20 Rule

 

If we did, we would enable us to have happier, more secure kids

And a More tolerant, happier, peaceful society...

This is Our Next Generation who are going to be Pivotal in society....

We need Them To be Spreading

Kindness

Love

Tolerance

They are not learning this at schoool - obviously....

My son is - fortunately hes learnt it from me....

I remember a few years ago, when my son was very shy and introverted....

He went away on camp, first week at College (crazy timing really I think)

He hated it, he refused to socialise and came home very down and in fact broke down when I asked him what was the matter...

Several years later, he went on the same camp as a Peer Support Leader

thats involves after the other younger kids...

I asked him what he would be doing when he was there

"Ill be looking out for the kids who felt like I did 4 years ago"

I have never been so proud of my son...

So lets get this on the Curriculum.....

Whose with me?

Be Open To Everything and Closed To Nothing

I just had to share this incredible thing that happened yesterday

I share my gratitude in a facebook page..so I did that 

I was 'inspired' to post 'sunflowers' which were my sister's favourite flower...I am then 'inspired' to look at the date and it was 7 years yesterday since my sister passed away......wow...

Then later on  I was discussing Meditation and asking people what they used for meditation.

My good friend Shaun posted a video...a piece of music he used to meditate to...

This was my dad's favourite piece of music..he would sit down and just 'be at peace' listening to this music. I love it so much that I have this as my ring tone on my home phone.....

I actually changed the video - because once again I was 'inspired' to look this one up which encapsulates so much of my dad.  

The same music but to this wonderful sight...

His love of nature and this music...he absolutely loved bird watching, walking and nature....

Not sure why hes coming back to me at the moment, maybe it has something to do with my sister's anniversary...

My dad passed away 3 years ago... a big piece of him died when my sister passed away 7 years ago...

Listen to this music and  watch these birds...tell me it does nothing for you...

 

I am not religious but watching this I can't help but be moved...feel absolute 'amazement' at what we have on this earth.... just the sheer beauty..

Love to hear from you, your thoughts, comments

Are You Showing Your Vulnerability

Are You Showing Your Vulnerability

I was listening to a very powerful webinar yesterday, and one of the things mentioned was showing your vulnerability....

I have also heard this many times before...

We are 'customed' Not to show our vulnerability..

Not to cry

Not to show we are hurting

Not to share our challenges

So recently I have been Really 'drawn/'inspired' how to;

get out of my comfort zone...

Show my vulnerability

Open Up....

So I have in the last several months...

I joined Toast Masters - and spoken up 5 times plus

I got on a webinar, in front of 2000+ to talk about one of my challenges...(above)

I wrote a very personal blog post....that I have been living with for years..and I had dealt with it, but it was still pretty scary to share...but I wanted to help people..

Then - The Universe was really pushing me - I got onto Another Google Hang out and shared my vulnerability AGAIN and this time - I started to cry !! wow...

Are You Showing Your Vulnerability

So why did I do this...?

Because I want to break through my own limitations...

I want to show people How they can break through theirs

So what do you need to share with others?  

Notice how we don't hear from Adele, yes shes very weathly and has gorgeous baby, but shes no longer in pain...

Many artists share their stories through their music...

Share your stories, the challenges you have got through

Open up and be Yourself....

yes we get scared of being judged, but don't be..the right people will be inspired by you and the 'other' ones are just too scared to do the same so knock you for being 'authentic'..

I confess when I was younger, I would 'never' have shared my vulnerable side..I was feeling 'way too' vulnerable..but now after my own growth...I jump out of my comfort zone, because I Know how much it will do for me and others..and thats what this life is All about....

Come Join us and Inspire others....

Im sorry I Love You Please Forgive Me

 

We Can't Please Everyone, (and neither should we try)

but sometimes there are people in our lives who we actually love/care about, and we fall out with and we really don't want to...

Sometimes it can take 'years' and sometimes we never do heal a rift, see my previous blog here 'what are you not saying', but as long as we can, we need to heal rifts, life is way too short and when you don't, they 'eat' at you, causing stress and unhappiness...

We have to let go of that 'dastardly' thing called 'Ego' which tells us

'Im NOT going to say sorry, that makes ME look as if Im IN THE Wrong!!...

no it doesn't actually..it just says

I care About This Relationship Than I do About Being Right

I'm sorry I Love You Please Forgive Me

I spoke up on a couple of webinars lately and opened my heart,  and someone who saw it sent me this wonderful little 'meditation'....as they know I do this already....

If you want to know more about hooponopono,

then please click here

Its quite amazing when you do this, it actually had me feeling very emotional, but then again I can be like that :)

Whatever it does for you - I hope it helps you...

Remember, No one really wants to be 'at war' with you

we just don't know how to make things right and that EGO, gets in our way.

So Push it right out of your heart, your mind and in fact - Leave it at the Door....

And Say Im Sorry, I love you Please Forgive me...

(you don't have to say the whole thing to the person, but at least say 'Im sorry for my part) and do this exercise/meditation

Im sorry I love you Please Forgive me...

Can You Relate To This

Can You Relate To This

I joined this business about 18 months ago..

To be honest, I didn’t do much with it – I didn’t take it seriously for a A LONG time…

I couldn’t make the first event after I joined…because I had just flown to the UK...

To surprise my mother for her 80th birthday – that was just priceless…

However I went to my first event in July 2013 and to be honest I was a bit ‘overwhelmed’

I didn’t like the way Dave Wood, dressed or spoke and I certainly didn’t like the way people treated him…..(now I understand this so much better)

I wondered what I had got myself into to be honest….

So I started to seek other ‘brits out’   (I am a brit living in New Zealand)

We Brits are more reserved...

or boring as some like to call it ! :)

They were 'normal' like me - or perhaps not 'normal' lol...

(None of us here are 'normal'....we are 'wierd' and we like things a bit 'different'

That’s what it takes to be an ‘entreprenneur’)

However I still wasn't sure....

I didn't like the Ra Ra Ra, how excited everyone got at the events...

I am Not religious and this reminded me of religious meetings where everyone gets excited, stands up, waving their hands in the air..I laugh now as I think of that...

But that was before I transformed......

Now I’m up there with them - feeling so excited  because I can see the transformations that are happening...for everyone….

Then things started to happen in my business…

Can You Relate To This

I had been out for the day and came home and discovered I had

made $2500 in One day

 (my results are not typical - see average incomes here)

After going to my 2 and 3rd events I started to see how much Love there was in this community

how much people cared.....

Yes its a business

but its more a Transformational Community disguised as a Business

Everyone here wants to help You succeed...

As the months passed by I fell more and more in love with this community

It feels like home...

I spent a lot of years when I was younger, desperately wanting to be accepted....and here you are Accepted for Who You Are....

No one is going to point at you here and say ‘your different

We Are All Different !!

No one tells you;

How to dress,

How to Speak,

We have All sorts here..hippies,

‘posh people’,

grandmas,

deaf people,

blind people….

You name it…we are all here..

We CAN and Are Making a change in the world

When I was young, I was shy, introverted, I was bullied ...

So now I spend my time inspiring others,

standing up for the under dog and I want Everyone 

to know they can stand up too.

Dave Wood, and the community are the same - they stand up for everyone....

I have seen at events, people stand up and say they don’t have the money to get home or they are sold everything they could to get there

– what happens?

Either EN pays for their hotel and for them to get home or we all band together and help them as a community 

People have come back from bankruptcy here

….foreclosure…

Paid for badly needed medical expenses….

of some kind.

Cristina here, who I got to meet and see speak on stage, blogs from bed AND has managed to pay for medical expenses to help her injured back

Everytime I go to an event, I see a ‘friend’ who lives across the world from me…who I only get to see at events, we think the same, we want the same...

We are Positive Like Minded people.....

Its like coming home….

I have said it before and I will say it again – I want to live in a commune with these people….they get me…we Get each other!
 

This sound like you?  Something you want to be part of?

Then come join us
