When you aspire and perspire to acquire a desire you admire and require. If it backfires don’t retire but be inspired to re-fire!!!

They have come again!!!!

Have you ever attended a talk and felt 'motivated' with a buzz to go out and conquer the world. Then after three days you felt 'motiva' and then after one week all you felt was 'moti'. By the second week, you can't even remember anything from the 'aspire to perspire'. Back to square 1.

I learnt very quickly never to allow the need to 'plan' to jeopardise the need to 'start' or the need to be 'motivated' to affect the need to be 'activated'. You see what I mean??? They have come again!!

So on all my training sessions, I obsessively give simple action points in a simple list to my audience by way of exercises or activities. So you learn by doing!!

For instance, after reading this 'try describing your current and future professional self in 50 words each!!!! Yes try it.

It's an activity I gave last week to the over 220 professionals from 17 African countries currently on my Flexylearn International Career Coaching Program (ICCP). You need to see the huge responses and today I shared with them the secret to describing it well. They are having so much fun!!!😊😊

Why action points though?? This is so that if tomorrow you forget 'aspire to perspire', all you need is to look at my list and do the next thing it says. 😊😊
