I thought I’d share my own ascent. which is a process I was introduced to 6 years ago by Kevin Dawkins, who was the founder of Results in Business. I explain the process and it’s purpose in an earlier blog entry. The Ascent would have to be one of the most effective business and personal development disciplines.This ascent is for the past week as I have already completed the 90 day reflection doc

  • Where your attentions goes your energy flows. Trying to do too many things at once causes me frustration
  • Being Present to what it is I’m doing will ensure a better Result
  • Results = Intention x Attention.
  • choose my mindset. eg. When shopping I can choose my old thinking….I" hate this!" …or approach it with some excitement, adventure, curiosity, mystery…..the latter was more enjoyable, Thanks Beth "6 yr old daughter"

Starting out Strong in 2010

To support you in starting the year strong I have provided the attached tools for you to use. please feel free to download the following documents so you can get some focus and really "Harness the Energy of the NEW YEAR"

Work / Life Balance This quick checklist will provide some valuable insights as to where and how balanced your life is. It’s a good idea to complete it with your partner, to see how aligned you are.

10 Steps Planning Tool I was introduced to this six years ago and every year in January I make a date with myself to complete it in full. This single document alone can set your whole year up. You will find it re-energises, reconnects, and inspires you by having clear Focus again. Some complete this as a couple, and others complete with their team as part of their strategic planning. We will be covering this as a part of our "Planning Your Success in 2010" workshop being held on January 28th, so this is a great place to start getting in the right mindset. "if you fail to plan….you plan to fail"

Remember the Best way to Predict the Future is to Create it !!!

All the Best with Starting your Year Strong

I’m really excited about 2010…….My theme for the year is FUN, Breaking New Ground, and Abundance, so if you can help me stay the course with those intentions I’ll be most GRATEFUL.

Have FUN and stay in Motion

Warm Regards

This would have to be my number 1 Highlight for 2009 Lewis Micol Walter Waretini (IWA) entered the world on 17th August 2009. "IWA" represents the number 9 in Maori and is a special number for Lewis. When I was asking about the birthdates of the Males in the family they all added up to 9 in numerology

Lewis                            1+7+0+8+2+0+0+9 = 27  (2+7=9)

Karl                                2+5+1+2+1+9+7+0 = 27  (2+7=9)

Mike (my dad)             1+5+0+2+1+9+4+5 = 27   (2+7=9)

Colin (Hayleys dad)   0+3+0+2+1+9+4+8 = 27   (2+7=9)

Walter (my grandad) 04+1+1+1+9+2+0 = 18  (1+8=9)
