Refine, Not Define – How To Manipulate Negative Experiences To Your Advantage.

No one is immune to negative or unhappy experiences in life. We all have been there, done that.

A negative experience has the power to pull you back, make you unproductive, and take a toll on your emotional and mental well being.

Some people are affected by it in an unproductive way, and some people learn from the experience, and turn it into something productive.

The difference is this – the people who are affected in an unproductive manner are the people who allow the negative experience to define them. On the other hand, the people who are affected in a productive manner are the people who use the negative experience to refine them.

Don’t let a negative experience define you, let it refine you!

So, here are 4 steps on how you can use a negative experience to refine you:

1. Remind yourself that the past is the past – As simple as that may sound, some people cannot let go of the past. Their past becomes their identity. In some cases that identity creates a victim mentality. After years of being a Life Coach, and having coached people from all walks of life, I can put my hand on my heart and say this – nothing disempowers a person more than having a victim mentality. A victim mentality keeps people stuck. Worse still, it has the capacity to repel supportive, caring, and nurturing people. I volunteer at a mental health support centre where I made friends with a trauma counsellor. He taught me an exercise that he gave to his clients. He would ask them to clap their hands and repeat “That was then, this is now”. In other words, if you don’t let go of the past, you will never experience the power of “Now”.

2. Adjust your focus – I am a big believer in the Law Of Polarity. It dictates that for every negative, there is a positive. Some people get stuck in the victim mentality because their attention is focussed on the negatives of that given event or experience. If they were to focus on the positives that came out of that event or experience, they would not get stuck in a victim mentality. Instead, they would be more likely to get empowered. In the immortal words of Tony Robbins “Where focus goes, energy flows”. If you have a negative experience that is holding you back, please make a comprehensive list of everything that will serve you productively (as a result of that experience). Write it down each day and read it aloud for the next 30 days. I can assure you that you will gain empowerment.

3. Learn to recognise your patterns – In an article in Psychology Today, Dr Mark Bandschick said that everyone has got triggers and responses. He goes on to say “Learn to recognise yours”. That is so true! When we learn to recognise our triggers, we are in a better position to take immediate action in order to control the outcome of that trigger. Let’s just say that a person’s relationship with their partner ends up in a bad break up. They are left feeling very dis-heartened, and gripped by negative emotions. A few weeks later, they are getting back on track to get on with their life. Then, while driving, they hear a song on the radio that reminds them of their ex-partner. Now, the negativity starts to creep in, and they get into a disempowered state. The song was the trigger and the disempowered state is the response. When I was doing Life Coaching, I used to ask my clients to create a “Happiness Trigger”. It could be anything that makes you smile as soon as you think about it. Most of my clients chose their children, their pets, or something symbolic to their success. One lady whom I coached had the image of her dog running on the beach. Every time she imagined her dog running on the beach, she would smile from ear to ear. Learn to recognise your negative experience triggers, and learn to stop them by using a happiness trigger.

4. Forgive and thrive – Forgive yourself, forgive the other party (if applicable), and give yourself permission to thrive. Forgiveness is a very powerful tool for anyone’s life. Sometimes we are very quick to forgive others, yet very slow to forgive ourselves. Look in the mirror and say “I give you permission to soar above any negative experience from the past. Your present moment is priceless, and you will make your future a fruitful one”. Forgiveness is a very liberating personality trait. Whenever I deliver speeches at schools on bullying, I will say to the targets of bullying “Forgive the bullies, and you will show them that you choose to be the bigger person, you choose to lead by example, and you choose to focus on things that are positive, productive, and powerful”.

Please use the above mentioned 4 steps to help you break free from anything from the past that may not be letting you be productive and purposeful.

I strongly suggest seeking professional help if you are dealing with serious negative experiences from the past that are holding you back from being your best.

Growth is the best possible outcome for any negative experience”

John C. Maxwell

I hope I have given you a simple insight into doing something productive in order to break free from negative experiences from the past.

How To Awaken A Powerful Personality Trait.

The Merriam Webster dictionary defines empathy as “The feeling that you understand and share another person’s experiences and emotions: the ability to share someone else’s feelings.”


As I write this article, I am also preparing to deliver a speech at a state government organisation, on Diversity In The Workplace.


In that speech, I will say this – “Empathy allows us to be more human.”


What does that mean?


It means that when we come from a place of empathy, we are more in touch with another person’s feelings, thoughts, and reality.


Can empathy be taught?


In one of his articles, empathy expert Dr Roman Krznaric wrote “According to the latest neuroscience research, 98% of people (the exceptions include those with psychopathic tendencies) have the ability to empathise wired into their brains – an in-built capacity for stepping into the shoes of others and understanding their feelings and perspectives.”


I am on the same page as Dr Krznaric – I realise that empathy exists in people. It’s less a matter of teaching them empathy, and more a matter of awakening empathy in them.


How do you awaken empathy in others? Here are 3 suggestions:


1. Use questions – As speaker, I ensure that my speeches have emotionally engaging questions throughout the speech. Whenever I do volunteer speaking for charities, my goal is to get the audience members to support the charity. How do I achieve that goal? By awakening empathy in them. How do I awaken empathy in them? By asking questions! I ask questions such as “Can you imagine how the people in need will feel when they receive support from this charity?” Followed by “When you put yourself in their shoes, do you gain clarity on their plight?” In my Effective Communication training courses, this is something that I say emphatically “When you make a statement, people listen. When you ask a question, people think.” As you can see, questions have the power to awaken empathy.


2. Use “call backs” – A call back is when you make reference to something that happened in the past to the person whom you are engaging with at the time. For example, let’s say that you are parent, talking to your child. Your request to him/her is to be kind to other children. You could say something along the lines of “Do you remember when I took you to my manager’s son’s birthday party? You didn’t know anyone there. My manager’s son was very kind to you and played with you. Can you please do the same thing to kids that you don’t know when they come to our place”. A call back is very emotionally engaging because it makes the person re-live an experience.


3. Lead by example – This is one of the most empathic ways to awaken empathy in others. Actions indeed speak louder than words. I am fortunate and blessed to know many people who have dedicated their lives to the services of others (be it humans or animals). These role models of mine have not only awakened more empathy in me, they have also enlightened thousands of others to become more empathic. When you lead by example and beam empathy towards other living beings, people are more likely to follow your lead. Through experience I can say this – empathy breeds empathy. Whenever I see or hear from someone who beams empathy, I become more inclined to show more empathy. So, please lead by example!


Now, let’s look at when/where to use empathy:


·  Home – When I was a kid, my mum used to take three modes of transport (car, train, bus) to get to work for a few years. My goal was to make life easier for my mum when she got back from work. After coming back from school, I would tidy the kitchen, get the washing off the line, and take the rubbish out before she got home from work. Put yourself in the shoes of people at home, and feel what they’re going through. Then, look at how you can help them.  


·  Work – Whenever I deliver staff training to sales professionals, this is what I ask “Put yourself in the shoes of your clients. Look at things from their perspective. Now, tell me, what do they want, how do they want it, and when do they want it?” You can also apply that to your colleagues and have empathy for them.


·  Conflict Resolution – Whenever I am called upon by organisations to assist with conflict resolution, the first question I ask each party is “Please tell me in precise detail, what is it that you are asking for?” Followed by “Now, please put yourself in the position of the other party (see things from their perspective and feel their emotions) and tell me what would you want?”


·  Social justice causes – As mentioned earlier, in all my social justice work, I ask people to put themselves in the position of those that I am willing to make a difference to. You could do the same. Help people in awakening empathy, and they will be more willing to take part in making a positive impact.


Empathy is universal and has no barriers. It can be applied to anyone, anywhere, and anytime.  


I switched to a plant based diet in 2009 because I had empathy for animals.


Whenever you put yourself in the place of another living being and make an attempt to see what they see and feel what they feel, you are connecting with a deeper part of you that was created to feel for others, think of others, and act for others.  


Quote: ““Empathy is about finding echoes of another person in yourself.”  Mohsin Hamid


I hope I have given you a simple insight into being empathic and helping others in awakening empathy.

Time Management – A Myth.

Has anyone ever told you about time management, and how important it is in today’s hectic world?


In the corporate sector, time management is a big thing. I have delivered time management courses in corporate workplaces.


The first thing that I say in my time management courses is this – time cannot be managed. You can only manage how you spend your time.


Please think about this – time will tick away, one second at a time for you, for me, and for anyone else for that matter. In other words, you cannot manage how time will tick away.  


You may have heard of the old adage – “Time and tide wait for no one”.


Well, you and I are not exempt from that quote.


I remember Tony Robbins saying something along the lines of – “The only equal opportunity that we have is time. We all have 24 hours in a day. It doesn’t matter where you live, who you are, or what you look like, time has been given to you at 24 hours a day”.


How true is that statement?


So, how can you manage what you do with your time?

Here are a few tips:

1.    Be organised – As simple as this may sound, being organised is a very effective tool in being productive. Do you know what you will do for the day, at the start of that day? One strategy that I suggest in my corporate training course is to think calmly when organising your day or week. Take a deep breath, close your eyes, count to three, and then start organising yourself. Being calm will allow you to think straight. When you think straight, you will have more clarity. And, clarity enhances productivity.

2.    Learn to say “No” – In a previous article I mentioned that saying “No” to others can be a very liberating experience. I once read somewhere “Saying “No” to other people is saying “Yes” to yourself. That is very true indeed. When you say “No” to someone with a genuine reason for saying “No”, you should expect yourself to be at peace with that decision. Now, we cannot control how others will feel or react or respond. All we can do is be diplomatic and give them a reason as to why you are saying “No”. If you are too busy pleasing others, you will never be able to please yourself.

3.    Overcome procrastination – By procrastinating, you will do two things. First, you will have mental baggage that will keep reminding you that you have to get something done. Second, when you eventually get around to doing what you had been putting off, chances are you will be in a rush to do it. When you rush to get things done, they might not turn out the way you wanted them to. Procrastination is the killer of dreams. Kill it before it kills your dreams. The best way to do that is to just get going and doing what has to be done (no excuses, no delays, and no waiting).

4.    Technology free time – In an article in Forbes, Natalie Sisson says that at times we should turn off the internet. My approach is very similar to that. On Sundays, I observe a technology free zone. No internet time at all on Sundays for me. Unless it is an emergency, I will not log on using my phone or my laptop. Please be honest in answering this question – have you ever mindlessly surfed the net?  Most people will respond with a resounding “Yes”. Create yourself a technology free zone, and use that time on things that are more important.

5.    Move – Once again, as simple as this may sound, move your body. Human beings are healthier and happier (in general) when their bodies are moving more. As Tony Robbins says “Physiology creates psychology” and “Motion creates emotion”. I have found this to be the case time and time again – when people with desk jobs get up and move for a few minutes, they are more likely to be productive. When I was in my early 20’s, and working for a major financial institution, things were super hectic towards the end of the financial year. I used to get up, go to the top floor of the building (it was only a six storey building), and do stretching and deep breathing for a few minutes in the balcony. At times, I even did shadow boxing. I would come back to my desk feeling energetic and productive. So, if you start feeling sluggish, get up and move. Being productive equates to using your time better.

6.    Avoid unimportant phone calls – I have a golden rule that I never break. If my mobile phone rings while I am eating, I will not take that call. My belief is that food is to be respected. So, I won’t take any phone calls while I am eating. There is something else that I do not do. I will not take phone calls from hidden numbers or private numbers after hours. If it is an important phone call, they will leave a message. My suggestion to you is to screen your calls and then decide if it is important or not.

7.    Give back to society  – Yes, you might not have expected this one! Conventional time management wisdom may tell you that giving back to society will not help you in using your time better. What I have found is that when we fit in giving back into our hectic schedules, we become more fulfilled. Now, my belief is that fulfilment breeds productivity, not complacency. Whether you are a CEO or a housewife, once you start giving back to society, your sense of purpose gets stronger. When your sense of purpose gets stronger, you are more likely to be wiser with using your time. When I was doing Executive Coaching for CEOs and MDs, each and every one of them mentioned that doing volunteer work for their chosen cause strengthened their commitment to themselves. When you are committed to yourself, you will use your time wisely!

I hope I have given you a simple insight into productively using your time.

How To Execute With Excellence In 2016.

It is that time of the year when people are coming up with resolutions for the new year and setting goals in many areas of their lives.


Rest assured, I will spare you the task of reading another article on resolutions for the new year.


What I will focus on instead is how to connect acceptance and appreciation with your goals.


Some experts in the fields of personal development and professional development may have told us to stay so focussed on the goal that we become almost tunnel visioned. I have been guilty of doing that in the past.


The point that I wish to make is this – goal setting for the new year or for your life will not be very purposeful if you don’t make acceptance and appreciation part of your everyday life.


I will totally understand if the present moment is a very challenging time in your life. Last month, I was speaking to a young man who is not a big fan of setting goals in life. He used to set goals and he had massive professional achievements. Then, he got struck by a debilitating illness. Now, getting through daily human tasks such as walking, bathing, and eating is a challenge for him.


He emphatically said to me “There is no point in setting goals when you are not making the most of the present moment. Life is full of surprises. What lies ahead, no one can predict. So, I am now of the belief that I must totally be at peace with myself. Then only I can work towards the future, and hope for things to get better”.


After speaking to this young man, I came to the conclusion that (in my opinion), acceptance and appreciation should take precedence over goal setting.


Here is my three step process to embracing acceptance, expressing appreciation, and executing productively to achieve your goals:

1.    Do you love what you see? – When I asked this young man how he saw himself or what his self image was, he replied “I see someone who is at total peace with himself, his life, and his current situation”. Now, my question to you is this – do you love what you see when you look deep inside yourself? Let’s forget about the ‘superficial you’ ie. the person you see when you look in the mirror. I am talking about the person that you are on a deeper level – your beliefs, your attitude, your values etc. Society is plagued with body image issues these days. Nearly everyone in western society would like to make some changes to their physical appearance. In an article, the Social Issues Research Centre mentioned that at least 80% of people over the age of 18 are not happy with what they see when they look in the mirror. Learn to appreciate and more importantly, respect what you see when you look deep inside. If you wish to make changes to yourself, start on the inside first. Make a list of everything that you are on the inside. Then, tick the items on the list that you are happy with. Followed by, a plan on how to improve on the things that you could be happier with.

2.    Do you appreciate what you have? – When I was doing Life Coaching, I had so many clients who wanted things in life, without acknowledging and appreciating what they already had. In 2007, I read a quote which I mentioned in my book –  “In life, we should be happy with what we already have, and happier with what we will receive.” This quote was from an Anonymous author. Another quote that I once read was “Count your blessings, and you will lose count”. Once again by an Anonymous author. My suggestion to you is to start appreciating everything that you have. A simple way to do this is to start saying two words that have the power to make you more appreciative – “Thank you”. Start saying “Thank you” more in your everyday life. In my book I wrote about how I used to say “Thank you” to my car every time I arrived at work in the morning. The more appreciative you become, the more chances you have in making productive changes in your life, and in the lives of others around you. Being appreciative can be very contagious at times! So, whom have you said “Thank you” to today? What have you said “Thank you” for today? 

3.    Execute with excellence and appreciation –  Be appreciative of the opportunity that you have to work towards achieving something. As I was writing this article, I received a phone call from a friend who is self employed. She called me to share some exciting news – she had just signed a contract with a business mentor! She said that she was very grateful to finally be able to afford the fees that this particular business mentor was charging. My suggestion to her was to tell the business mentor “I will execute with excellence and appreciation”. Now, that is my message to you too. When you are taking action to achieve something, act with excellence and appreciation. Bring your best (excellence) to the table and appreciate the opportunity to take action towards achieving what you want. Coming from a place of excellence and being appreciative at the same time is designed to make you more productive.

Quote: “The reality is – you’re either pushing forward and improving. Or, you’re going backwards, and getting worse. That is life. That’s how it works.” Adam Armstrong


I hope I have given you a simple insight into using this three step process in embracing acceptance, expressing gratitude, and executing with excellence this year.

Awaken, Develop, Reinforce

Recently, I was speaking to a HR manager who has been asking me for support in bringing out the best in the people she works with.

Her question was very similar to what many HR managers, team leaders, coaches, and mentors ask – “How do I improve the performance of the people I work with? Is there a formula or a method?”

Parents might also be wondering the same thing – is there a way in which I can bring out the best in my children?

Although there are many methods out there, here is something that can be used in your personal life,as well as your professional life.

There are three steps to the process:

  1. Awaken – in my years of coaching and mentoring, one thing has been clear to me. That is, some people are not aware of what lies inside them ie. their hidden strength, potential, talent, and abilities. I remember a quote by the legendary Ralph Waldo Emerson “What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.” The first step is to help people in uncovering what lies inside them – their untapped potential. There are many books and articles out there which focus on this subject. The one question that I ask people who wish to realise their untapped potential is “What would your life be like if you were living up to your potential?” Followed by “Which of those things can you do right now?” This gives them some sense of reality. In the present moment, being realistic can be a good start. Another strategy that I use is asking them for their past achievements eg. “Name a goal that you achieved that seemed like a big challenge at some stage”. When they give me an example, I will ask “What will it take to exceed that achievement?” Once again, this gets them thinking. Then I ask them to make a list of the skills that they would love to develop. Finally, I use a question that Dr Michael Broder mentioned in his enlightening book Stage Climbing – “If you were operating at your highest potential in this part of your life, what advice would you have for someone else who was struggling with this issue?”
  2. Develop – now that the person has some idea about what lies inside them and what they wish to do, it is time to act on the physical plane. I will now ask “What will it take to develop those inner qualities so that you can take action (execute)? While speaking to this HR manager, I asked her to spend time and resources on developing the people she works with. This is where a coach, mentor, or a professional trainer comes in handy. I remember when I started playing cricket for a club, my batting coach spent hours on my footwork. Although it seemed repetitive at the time, the energy and time spent was well rewarded! The insights from my coach were invaluable. I also suggest to people to do some self learning and developing – reading books, reading articles, listening to podcasts, and watching online videos. Developing a person’s skills can require time, and patience is required. If you are helping someone develop themselves (in a professional or personal capacity), please keep one word in mind – empathy. Everyone learns and develops differently. So, keep encouraging them to develop and grow.    
  3. Reinforce – once the person has started thinking about what they wish to achieve and has started working on developing themself, start supporting them in many different ways. If the person is working hard in a training program, ask them how the training program is going, and if they need anything else to make things more fruitful for them. If the person is having a few challenges, remind them that you are here for their support, and that they are not alone in this. Just a gentle reminder that you are here for them can go a very long way in making them feel that they are part of something bigger. It also helps to remind them of what you discussed in the first two steps. Sometimes when we start focussing on one thing, we may lose sight of the bigger picture. This is where you should remind them of the bigger picture – what lies ahead, what has to be done, and what positive outcomes to expect. It is amazing what a difference it makes to people who have someone supporting them. In my coaching career, I used to say “I give you the gift of four words – I believe in you” to my clients who were working hard to achieve their goals.

When it comes to supporting other people in becoming more productive and positive, my suggestion to anyone is “To bring out the best in others, you have to bring out the best in you!”

In summary, help them in awakening what lies inside them, support them in developing themselves, and keep encouraging them.

Quote: “The best way to inspire people to superior performance is to convince them by everything you do and by your everyday attitude that you are wholeheartedly supporting them.” Harold S. Green

I hope that I have given you a simple insight into supporting people in being at their best.

5 Steps For A Productive And Purposeful 2015

A very happy new year to you! I hope that you really enjoyed the Christmas season with family and friends.

Seeing that now things are getting back to the normal routine (people are going back to work, and children are preparing to go back to school), we must focus on what we can do to make the year ahead a productive and purposeful one.

Now, I won’t give you the ‘stock standard’ advice about the new year – make a resolution, stick to it, and encourage others to stick to their resolutions.

Instead, I will share with you practical tips on creating and maintaining a productive and purposeful year ahead.

So, here are my 5 Steps For A Productive And Purposeful 2015:

1. Decide on what you want – in his audio program called “Decisions”, the legendary Bob Proctor says “Decisions – winners make them fast, while losers make them slow and change them often”. So, decide on what you want to do this year. No one can be intentionally productive and purposeful without making a decision about what they want to do. Decide on what you want, be very specific, and stick to that decision (unless extreme unexpected circumstances come your way). There is no bliss in just cruising or coasting along in life. You have to make decisions and put in the work.

2. Be committed – I once read a question which asked “Are you committed or are you just interested?” Without commitment, nothing will be done. When you are committed to doing something, excuses for not doing things are outweighed by reasons for doing things. I have seen this in my life, and in the lives of people that I have been fortunate enough to mentor and/or coach. So, make a commitment to getting what you want by committing to doing what has to be done in order to get what you want. It really is that simple.

3. Have a support team – There is a quote which I read many years ago which reminds me of the importance of support in our lives. It is goes like this; “Life is not a solo act. It’s a huge collaboration, and we all need to assemble around us the people who care about us and support us in times of strife” (by Tim Gunn). Having a support team in helping us getting to where we want to go has many benefits. People on our support team give us guidance, they give us emotional support, they give us encouragement, and they can be instrumental in helping us create and maintain healthy boundaries. So, which people in your life can you count on to be on your support team?

4. Focus on growth more than on gain – what I mean is that you must focus on personal growth more than you focus on physical/material gain. Ask yourself “How will I grow personally during the process of getting what I want?” Followed by “What positive changes in my character do I wish to see as a result of getting what I want?” Personal development is an ongoing journey. As Tony Robbins says “CANI – constant and never ending improvement”. In my opinion, “educated” is a misused word in the English language. It comes from the Latin word “educo” which means “to draw out, or develop from within”. So, keep educating yourself (I am not just referring to formal education) and keep focussing on personal growth. As Henry Doherty said “It is the studying that you do after your school days that really counts. Otherwise, you know only that which everyone else knows.”

5. Create a bigger impact – without service or benefit to society/community/people, you won’t be making a bigger impact! How will what you wish to achieve help others? If you wish to grow your business, and you achieve that goal, you could start donating a percentage of your profits, or giving work experience to disadvantaged youth. When I released my first book, I made a decision to donate part of the royalties to my favourite charity. If you want something on a personal level, dig deep and ask yourself "How will getting that something enable me to help/serve others?" And no, I am not suggesting that you drop everything and start doing volunteer work on a full time basis. All I am suggesting is that you look for ways in which you can help others in some way or another. When you share yourself (your skills, knowledge, wisdom, talents) with others, not only do they grow, you grow with them. At the end of every coaching session or every speech that I have given, I have walked away feeling that I have gained insights and knowledge from the session or the speech. So, create a bigger impact that reaches far beyond you!

One more thing that I would add is this – let go of attachments and outcomes. Yes, put in the work, hope for the best, and have faith. Don’t be fixated on certain outcomes. Sometimes something different comes our way, and we may not instantly realise that this something different could be more purposeful to us than what we had initially hoped for!

In Dr Mike Godfrey’s book “What’s The Matter – a doctor’s journey into our innate spirituality”, he mentions a prayer by Maurice Tester which is – “Dear God, thy will be done”.

I found that prayer to be very liberating. It liberates us from attachments and outcomes which can lead to massive disappointment. So, be open to outcomes, and not attached to them.

Quote: “Don’t pray for fewer problems; pray for more skills. Don’t ask for smaller challenges; ask for greater wisdom. Don’t look for an easy way out; look for the best possible outcome.” Steve Goodier

I hope that I have given you a simple insight into creating a productive and purposeful 2015.

Inspiring you towards your excellence,
