How Do You Feel When You Are Recognized?

Posted by vivhudson on May 27, 2015 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (0)

As I get nearer to approaching my 50th year the insights I have on my life to this point seem to be coming thick and fast. Maybe it is some of the people I have been mixing with, maybe the burning inside me that if I don't get some of this stuff done then it's going to be too late. Maybe it's not having the physical demands of a young family and learning now about what I really want to teach my kids.

What it is to BE Human

I have begun to ponder the meaning of what it is to be human. A friend of mine recently quoted we are human beings, not human doings, which got me thinking ...

'Dealing With It' Success Strategies For The School Of Life

Posted by vivhudson on May 23, 2015 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Resilience will be one of the major success factors in life as we move deeper into this century. Given how far technology has come in the last 10 years, it is almost hard to fathom what the next 10 years will deliver. Our children are being educated for jobs we don't even know exist yet and the foundations of what they may need to know have not yet been embedded into the standards of traditional school education. This lack of certainty will require development of good coping skills and the ab...

Your Body Speaks Volumes

Posted by vivhudson on April 19, 2015 at 4:30 PM Comments comments (0)

We take our bodies for granted and seldom slow down enough to listen to what our body is telling us or telling others. The time pressures and busyness of our western minds rob us from the ability to truly tune into ourselves.

The numbers indicate that 55% of what we say is body language, 38% is the tone we use and 7% the actual words we say. Th...

FAIL ... First Attempts In Learning

Posted by vivhudson on April 6, 2015 at 7:55 AM Comments comments (0)

One of my favorite questions was 'What would you attempt if you knew you could not fail?'

Our fear of failure can hold us back and cause us to do nothing at all. By allowing fear to hold us back, we are likely to miss some of life's greatest opportunities. We attach FEAR (False Expectations Appearing Real) and shame to failure. This fear and shame can stem back from our childhood years where we may have been undermined or humiliated by our parents or teachers.

When Life Puts You Off Balance

Posted by vivhudson on March 22, 2015 at 7:50 AM Comments comments (0)

As you go about your day, how grounded do you feel? If there are times when you meet with negative opinions you may feel a little 'off balance' when responding.


Our bodies hold our truth in many ways. All our thoughts are encompassed in our nervous system and reciprocally feed our body. Our neural pathways activate not only our...

You Can't Change What You Don't Notice

How often do you catch yourself saying or doing things that you don't like? Maybe you continually get a response from others that result in a communication breakdown. On the pathway to change, the first thing is to notice what you can change!

If there is an area of your life that doesn't sit well, then just take notice.

A Lesson in Your Master of Business Adversity (MBA)

Posted by vivhudson on March 16, 2015 at 12:35 AM Comments comments (0)

I earned my Master of Business Adversity on the job, like many business owners.

In your business, you may think that if your people worked like a team, maybe things would be better. Do you see or hear about things your people are doing and don't like? Do you have problems addressing it? Often when you are caught up in the day to day running of the business it can be hard to address these situations and dealing with the emotion of the situation.

How Muddy Is Your Map?

Posted by vivhudson on March 15, 2015 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (0)

As with any destination we seek, we require a map or plan as to how to get us there. Simplistically speaking, we may want to travel to the next neighboring town. Whilst there are a few variables, you will already have a pretty good plan of how to get there. Your variables could include how much time it will take, your mode of transport, stops you may want to make on the way and if you prefer the direct or the scenic route.

When you are considering this, you probably think that ...

The Benefits of the Status Quo ...?

Posted by vivhudson on March 4, 2015 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (2)

Before we can begin to master change, we need to look into what the current benefits of not changing are. If you are stuck in a rut of running your business a certain way you may be avoiding a bigger issue that you see as too difficult to overcome. Issues may include confrontation, lack of resources or fears around success or failure. This could be known as the elephant in the room.
