The Two Falcons

 

Once there was a king who received a gift of two magnificent falcons from Arabia. They were peregrine falcons, the most beautiful birds he had ever seen. He gave the precious birds to his head falconer to be trained.

Months passed and one day the head falconer informed the king that though one of the falcons was flying majestically, soaring high in the sky, the other bird had not moved from its branch since the day it had arrived.

The king summoned healers and sorcerers from all the land to tend to the falcon, but no one could make the bird fly. He presented the task to the member of his court, but the next day, the king saw through the palace window that the bird had still not moved from its perch. Having tried everything else, the king thought to himself, “Maybe I need someone more familiar with the countryside to understand the nature of this problem.” So he cried out to his court, “Go and get a farmer.”

The court quickly located the farmer, who came and stood before the king. The king asked him, “How did you make the falcon fly?”

With his head bowed, the farmer said to the king, ” It was very easy, your highness. I simply cut the branch where the bird was sitting.”

We are all made to fly — to realize our incredible potential as human beings. But instead of doing that, we sit on our branches, clinging to the things that are familiar to us. The possibilities are endless, but for most of us, they remain undiscovered. We conform to the familiar, the comfortable, the mundane. So for the most part, our lives are mediocre instead of exciting, thrilling and fulfilling.

So let us learn to destroy the branch of fear we cling to and free ourselves to the glory of flight.

As you may know, I am going to be spending two weeks in April doing seminars and workshops in Kathmandu, Nepal. This will be my second speaking tour there, after November 2016.

Today, I wanted to announce one of my programs that I’ll be conducting there in Kathmandu. Titled “Make a Difference,” this two-day exclusive workshop will change your life and set you on the path towards becoming a leader and an achiever who stands out from the crowd, achieves their dreams, and leaves a legacy for others to follow.

This seminar includes brand new content that has never been used before, as well as some surprises that have been created exclusively for this learner group.

I’m excited for it and I know it’s going to be a wonderful time!

Success and Failure Happen in our Minds!

Thought for your Day: It is in the mind where success and failure happen. True, we don’t have much say in all the circumstances, conditions and events around us. Some things are truly out of our control. But what we can control is how we view them and how we respond to them. Our outlook on them determines our reaction towards them. A massive step towards success in any area of your life is realizing that it is not the circumstances that determine where you are and where you go from here, but rather your decisions and your choices–choices fuelled by the right mindsets and attitudes. You can change your life at any moment. All you need to do is change your mind!

PS: If you would like Coaching in the area of developing positive and success-engineering mindsets, please do drop us a mail to directkoaching@gmail.com or to our FB page and we’ll be happy to help you out!

Look Positively at the Process

Success takes hard work. Productivity is a tough process. Achieving can taxing on your mind and body. If we focus on the difficulties of obtaining success, we lose the power to pursue it and often fall short of the goal. Rather, let us focus on the joy, the happiness, the fulfilment, and the pleasure that comes through achieving our goals and let that motivation power us forward. Have a wonderful weekend!

Teamwork is Key!

Yesterday, I presented a business strategy to my board of directors. I was sure I had thought things out impeccably and had covered all the bases. However, one person saw a solution that would solve a particular problem within six months, whereas the solution I had for it would take twice that amount of time.

No one person has all the answers. Each one of us is smart, intelligent, intuitive, and blessed with an amazing super computer within our head. However, that doesn’t mean that we see the entire picture all the time. There are many variables that we may see or understand that can have mammoth affect on our plans. Each person processes information differently and each person sees things that others may or may not see, because of their various paradigms. So when it comes down to making decisions, never fail to get the help of others. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Focus on the Best

Life is busy for everyone–even more so for those of us who are entrepreneurs and business owners/leaders. It’s so easy for us to get caught up in the myriad of things to do on a daily basis that we lose sight of the bigger picture and the bigger goal. While most things on our “to-do” list are good things, if they are not the “best” things (ie: planning for the future and creating strategies for your success and making the decisions that only you as a leader can make), then it may be time to let them go or delegate them to others so that you can focus on the best that only you can do! Have a wonderful week ahead!

(PS: If you feel you could improve in this area and you’d like business or personal coaching, I’d be happy to work with you! Drop me a mail to my FB page and I will get in touch with you!)

Only Time for the Best (Mine)

Take Time to Think

Thought for your Day: Be sure to take time out from your work to focus your efforts! I learnt the value of this last night when I was an hour early for a dinner appointment with no work on me to do. From that one hour sprang a business plan and direction for my next three months. Time outs are essential for leaders! Have a wonderful Tuesday!
