Bet this scares you more than Halloween…

Time to Read – Faster than you can eat a treat, or play a trick

Everything you need, to achieve anything you want, you already have within you – right now.

That is as an individual, and as an organisation.

Some of you may be yawning at how often you have read or heard that line before. However, when we really look at those word and examine their meaning, we get scared, really scared.

As Marianne Williamson put it in her book, A Return to Love

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us…”

Because it may mean that we can achieve more in our lives. And that idea takes us way outside of any comfort or familiarity zones, into a journey of the unknown, of unlimited possibility, of being the very best that you already are.

Yes, I know this returns to a familiar theme – you – the question is when are you going to a return to an unfamiliar theme – the real you.

AND… Thank you to those of you who have offered use of premises to support The Prince’s Trust, hugely appreciated.

With my love to you all

  1. We can all improve. but have we got the time or the implication? It’s all very well saying we have it in us already but if that were true, why are we generally stuck in jobs we’re not interested in and not doing anything about it?
    Idealism gone mad!

  2. The question of whether trick or treating is extortion is interesting.
    For older people i think it is intimidating. That can be as scary as the evening itself.
    There are thousands i suspect who dread the knock on the door.

  3. I am more afraid of the post than halloween, yes, i admit it.
    To achieve our potential we have to give more. You only get out what you put in and i’m not prepared to make that sacrifice. Life is to short. I’m too busy enjoying it.

  4. With reference to the question about Trick or Treating – As long as the ‘children’ are supported by at least one respectful and responsible adult, then this can be such a community building experience for all.

    We took our children for the first time last night, we went from 18.30-19.30 and there were four adults taking care of the five children between the ages of 5-8.

    We ensured they only knocked at doors that were either decorated or that had lights on in the porch, as it was known in the area that lights off meant a no go area.

    That said, we did see a lot of older children, and some were still knocking on the doors at nearly 20.30. My view is it’s for the younger children and courtesy and respect should be shown at all times.

  5. I had a knock at 9,30pm and thought that was too late. i answered and a couple of youths were asking for money. All I could offer them was a packet of maltesers and lthough they didn’t seem too chuffed, they left saying thank you.

  6. That’s too late in my opinion. Unsupervised ‘children’ like that are almost begging for money.
    Not a great advert for youngsters today i must say.

  7. Children should be supervised to the age of 10 on these trips and there should be a curfew of 8pm at the absolute outside.
    I can understand the intimidation tactics might have an effect on the older generation.

  8. Why would anybody be scared of being successful?
    I guess the thought that you are taking on extra responsibly might be a hindrance to your future because some people just don’t want the extra hassle and longer hours that goes with it.
    Embrace it. That’s my motto.

  9. It is a lot to do with the stresses and strains of business.
    Some people prefer an easy life. That’s just the way it is.
    The more money you earn, generally, the more responsibility you have and that is not something people can always cope with.

  10. People should aspire to be the best and get on with the responsibility that brings. Otherwise they are not fulfilling their potential.
    Surely we have to strive to be the best we can be.
