. 
๐Ÿ’ฆ We're bringing all the drops together, and we're hoping that your cup is now at least half full..... ๐Ÿฅƒeven overflowing.......? ๐Ÿบ Or maybe you've got a whole flood of possibility and promise for what 2021 could mean for you? ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ˜

๐Ÿ˜ Be awesome dear friends!  Here's the wrap up:
. 
#1:  Savour the power and possibility available for you when you decide to manage your mindset and make life better.

๐Ÿ’งWow, we're nearly at the end of our 21 Days of Value for 2021!  We hope you have enjoyed them. 
.
๐Ÿ’ฆ In this Value Drop #20 I'm keen to bring together 2 concepts:  Attachment ๐Ÿชข and treating things in your life as a Game. ๐Ÿ‘พ
. 
๐Ÿชข On Attachment, I highly recommend you listen to Episode 69 of The Jim Fortin Podcast.  The title is "This Is Your Greatest Cause of Suffering". There's lots of gold nuggets in there that apply to multiple aspects of your life. 
.
๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ For me I know that a mistake I have made in the past is to get too attached to my work.  I let my corporate career consume too much of me.  It's the risk of having a high work ethic and a strong focus on service. 
.
๐Ÿช„I remember I used to say to myself and my team that the trick was to really care, and really not care, at the same time, ie care so much that you put the effort in to plan, solution, and do the best work you can to serve your company/customer, and then stop and switch off, let it go, and not care at all so that the stress and never-ending obligations don't consume you.  Sound tricky?  I definitely didn't manage to achieve it all the time, but I'm glad I recognised the possibility and gave myself permission to let go. 
. 
๐Ÿ‘พAs for Being a Gamer, thereโ€™s two key aspects:
. 
1๏ธโƒฃ Are you playing (a.k.a having fun)? 
๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜
.
Most things in life work out better if you have fun.  Remember how it used to feel to play?  Bring that joy and freedom to everything you do in life.  Experiment, fail, learn, and laugh with it all.  Bring lightness and possibility to what you are doing, and the experience for you and everyone else will be better.  Notice how it's harder to have fun if you are overly-attached to the outcome?
.
2๏ธโƒฃ Are you participating? 
โ›น๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿคฝโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
Are you actually on the field, or just being a bystander?  Criticising others for how they play, and not getting out there yourself?  Do you see obstacles, or the opportunity to learn and 'out-create' your circumstances? 
.
We love being detached gamers in our Time Rich Life โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›

Epic day trip to Piha with my girls..... . We love the pristine and powerful majesty of this place. . Charlie and I got married on the beach at the North end. We lived out there for 11 years. It will always be a special place for us. . . . Whenโ€™s the last time you enjoyed the majesty of nature and the world around you? . . .

๐Ÿ’งDoes โ€˜mainstreamโ€™ make you think of something safe, proven, and reliable?  Or boring, common, or restrictive? 
.
๐Ÿ˜ And what about something 'outside the mainstream'? Is it exciting, interesting, innovative?  Or risky, unproven, or maybe you worry about what others might think if you got involved or explored it further? 
. 
๐Ÿ˜ฑ To what degree are your feelings and reactions related to a fear of what might happen, experiences from the past, or fear of conflict with others? 
. 
๐Ÿค” Many of us don't stop to think about the mainstream, or the degree to which it is operating around us or influencing us.  It may be the news we listen to, the messages given by leaders at our workplace, beliefs instilled in us by our family, or the opinions of the people we spend the most time with. 
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ It's interesting to explore the concept of the 'herd mentality'. There is a willingness of the members of the herd to accept any information that creates the least amount of conflict in their lives.  They subordinate their thinking and  desires to the popular views of the group.  They conform, and succumb to the fear of rejection or conflict, They are at the effect of the herd and their circumstances, rather than at cause in their lives.  This can lead to feelings of frustration, helplessness, a lack of confidence, confusion, and disappointment.
.
๐Ÿ†“ When did you last break free and give your self some space to think about what is really important and meaningful for you? 
.
โ“What are the beliefs that you have?  Do those beliefs work for you or against you? 
. 
๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธThe answers to these questions are deeply personal.  The value in this Drop is recognising that there is a choice you can make about your beliefs, what you do in your life, and what's meaningful for you. 
.
๐Ÿ’ช The tools and strategies for enabling yourself to make those choices and bring it to life are in the programs that are the heart of our business.  We love to share them.

So this happened today!! ๐ŸŽ We received a gift from the founders of the company we partner with in our business. . ๐Ÿ™ They were thanking us for our contribution at the recent virtual Influence Live conference we attended and congratulating us for getting a top spot for the costumes we wore at the Gala party - Charlie was a Stormtrooper and I was a Vegas Showgirl. . Of course Charlie just had to use it as an excuse to get his costume back on and have some more fun!! . Having so much fun with this business, and really feeling like the force is with us in our Time Rich Life โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’› . Thanks to our daughter Eva for her filming and editing skills! And thanks to @gift_saint for curating a lovely box of goodies! We will enjoy! . . . . . #stormtrooper #grateful #gift #costume #fun #instagood #gala #party #giftbox #timerichlife

๐Ÿ“š Are you always learning?  I'm not just talking about for work, I'm talking about real life skills, managing your mindset, and the ability to take multiple aspects of your life to a whole new level. 
.
In this Value Drop I'm going to share 5 + 5....
. 
Share back a quote you love, or learning sources you have got the most value out of.
. 
Here's 5 of my favourite quotes about learning for life: 
. 
1๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ“ โ€œLearn to work harder on yourself than you do on your job." Jim Rohn
. 
2๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ“ โ€œNothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to learn." Pema Chodron
. 
3๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ“ โ€œIt's what we think we know that keeps us from learning." Claude Bernard
. 
4๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ“ โ€œAlways choose people that are better than you.  Always choose people that challenge you and are smarter than you.  Always be the student." Sandra Bullock 
. 
5๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ“ โ€œIf you are not willing to learn, no one can help you.  If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you." Zig Ziglar
. 
5 of my favourite latest sources for learning:
. 
1๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป The global Zoom training sessions in our business.  I've worked in many different organisations and never experienced an environment where learnings are shared so openly, frequently, and with so much energy, inspiration and support. 
. 
2๏ธโƒฃ ๐ŸŸข Greenlights by Matthew McConaughey - get the audio book so you can enjoy his engaging drawl and the entertaining way he delivers his insights.
. 
3๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ’ช Core personal development principles.  Award winning personal development programs are the heart of our business.  You can get a pretty chunky taste of these principles from the FREE 7 Day Boot Camp that was released as a gift early on in COVID
 https://www.mindpowerbootcamp.com/?id=28072 

4๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ My kids:  They share great things they've found, and of course, are always teaching me something about life as a parent! 

5๏ธโƒฃ ๐Ÿคฒ Volunteering is an opportunity to learn so much, especially when you are working with a charitable organisation.  It enriches my life.

๐Ÿ’ช Have you noticed the strong theme of personal responsibility in our Value Drops so far?
. 
๐Ÿคฉ We are strong believers that managing our mindset is the key to the life and the outcomes we want to achieve.  Thankfully, that doesn't also mean that you have to do everything alone and you can never ask for help. ๐Ÿ™
. 
๐Ÿ’งIn this Value Drop, we want to inspire you to know that it's ok to ask for help, and empower you with a couple of key 'droplets' for how to ask for help powerfully.
. 
๐Ÿคฟ Before we dive into the droplets (hmmm, not sure that quite works as a metaphor....LOL ๐Ÿ˜‚), anyway...... know that asking for help is a strength.  It's what successful people do.
.
๐Ÿ“ โ€œSuccess always takes help.  Failure is done alone." - Simon Sinek
. 
๐Ÿ“ โ€œBe strong enough to standalone smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it."
. 
๐Ÿ’ฆ Droplet 1:  BYO
Remember Value Drop #7 about being in a Problem State versus a Resource State?  Take some time to generate some ideas for possible solutions.  Then when you ask someone for help, bring those ideas and bounce them around.  Together you might come up with something even more powerful. ๐Ÿ‘ฏโ€โ™€๏ธ
. 
And don't beat yourself up if you find you're in a Problem State - laugh, forgive yourself, and then shift to solution/resource mode.
. 
๐Ÿ’ฆ Droplet 2:  Seek Knowledge
Help is all around us in stories others share, how others overcome problems similar to ours, and the expertise online from respected sources. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป Not everything you find will be the right fit for you.  Take the elements that resonate for you. ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ Find out what resources were needed, choices made, steps taken. Then take action to try them for your situation. ๐Ÿคฒ Be open to finding something of value for you. 
. 
๐Ÿ‘‰ And finally, know that the โ€˜problemโ€™ might be the very thing you need.  The opportunity that brings something better, if you are willing to see the possibility and bring it to life.
.
We love helping others in our Time Rich Life. โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›

Adventure every day. . Making it happen in our Time Rich Life. . . . . . #timerichlife #adventure #adventurebike #beautifulnewzealand #tenere #tenere700 #roadtrip #motorbike #twowheels #freedomride

Do you see 'Celebration' often?  I strongly recommend you make some time for her. ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽŠ
. 
๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ’‹โ€๐Ÿ‘ฉ Sheโ€™s closely related to gratitude:  when you practice gratitude you have lots to celebrate, and when you look at what you have to celebrate you naturally feel gratitude. 
. 
๐Ÿคฉ Celebration is a key life 'hack' to creating success and satisfaction, and generating more of that in your life. 
. 
๐Ÿ† In the personal development and success coaching programs that are the heart of our business, we have the concept of counting your wins, no matter how small. 
.
๐Ÿ˜ซ Being human, our reptilian brains tend to focus on the negative.  You know from earlier Value Drops that in life you get what you put your attention on.
. 
๐Ÿ˜ฑ If you are at a low point or struggling to deal with your circumstances, itโ€™s easy to feel like there is nothing to celebrate, that you haven't accomplished much.  Itโ€™s easy to be stuck in fear or worry about the future, or regret or hurt from the past. 
. 
๐Ÿ‘‰ Thatโ€™s the most important time to look for what you can celebrate.  It takes a shift in mindset.  One trick we use is R.A.C:
. 
๐Ÿ‘€ Recognise the win - find something, however small, eg Did you do some exercise today?  Take action towards a goal?  Identify a goal and plan how to achieve it?  Chose to eat something healthy?  Help someone?  Smile and laugh?
. 
๐Ÿ’ช Acknowledge what it took to achieve it, who you were being when you did it, the skills and capabilities you have and are developing, the forward step you made.

๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿ˜ Celebrate - focus on and allow yourself to feel the satisfaction and enjoy the achievement.  Choose an arbitrary number of wins (eg two or five) where you will reward yourself in some way - big or small. 
. 
๐Ÿ‘‰ Do at least one R.A.C every day for a month.  You'll find you have more wins, and more goodness will happen in multiple areas in your life. 
.

Weโ€™re celebrating you, in our Time Rich Life โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›

I strongly recommend you make some time for her. ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿฅณ๐ŸŽŠ . ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ’‹โ€๐Ÿ‘ฉ Sheโ€™s closely related to gratitude: when you practice gratitude you have lots to celebrate, and when you look at what you have to celebrate you naturally feel gratitude. . ๐Ÿคฉ Celebration is a key life 'hack' to creating success and satisfaction, and generating more of that in your life. . ๐Ÿ† In the personal development and success coaching programs that are the heart of our business, we have the concept of counting your wins, no matter how small. . ๐Ÿ˜ซ Being human, our reptilian brains tend to focus on the negative. You know from earlier Value Drops that in life you get what you put your attention on. . ๐Ÿ˜ฑ If you are at a low point or struggling to deal with your circumstances, itโ€™s easy to feel like there is nothing to celebrate, that you haven't accomplished much. Itโ€™s easy to be stuck in fear or worry about the future, or regret or hurt from the past. . ๐Ÿ‘‰ Thatโ€™s the most important time to look for what you can celebrate. It takes a shift in mindset. One trick we use is R.A.C: . ๐Ÿ‘€ Recognise the win - find something, however small, eg Did you do some exercise today? Take action towards a goal? Identify a goal and plan how to achieve it? Chose to eat something healthy? Help someone? Smile and laugh? . ๐Ÿ’ช Acknowledge what it took to achieve it, who you were being when you did it, the skills and capabilities you have and are developing, the forward step you made. ๐ŸŽ‰ ๐Ÿ˜ Celebrate - focus on and allow yourself to feel the satisfaction and enjoy the achievement. Choose an arbitrary number of wins (eg two or five) where you will reward yourself in some way - big or small. . ๐Ÿ‘‰ Do at least one R.A.C every day for a month. You'll find you have more wins, and more goodness will happen in multiple areas in your life. . . . . Weโ€™re celebrating you, in our Time Rich Life โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’› . www.jackiandcharlie.com . #21daysofvalue #celebrate #celebration #acknowledge #recognition #timerichlife #mindsetmatters #goodness #gratitude #sisters #sisterhood

๐Ÿ’งHere's 5 words, all with relevance for me and the journey we are on with these Value Drops. 

Have you heard of them?  Do you have any words you'd like to share? 
. 
1๏ธโƒฃ Moai (Japanese) ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต The cultural tradition of companionship, and one of the reasons why Okinawans live lives that are extraordinarily better and longer than almost anywhere else in the world.  In our business, we have a global moai we connect with over Zoom.  It's the best moai I've been part of! 
. 
2๏ธโƒฃ Ubuntu (South African) ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ โ€œI find my worth in you, and you find your worth in me". It roughly translates as human kindness, that we are all bound together in ways that we cannot see.  Hasnโ€™t COVID given us appreciation for our connectedness and humanity?
. 
3๏ธโƒฃ Commuovere (Italian) ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น To be moved in a heartwarming way.  I love hearing stories, and I treasure the capacity I have to be moved by stories in this world.
.
4๏ธโƒฃ Meraki (Greek) ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ท The idea of pouring yourself wholeheartedly into something, doing it with soul, creativity and love.  A kind compassion and appreciation for the small things.  That resonates for me with the practice of gratitude, and the idea of committing yourself fully to your journey. 
.
5๏ธโƒฃ Wabi-Sabi (Japanese) ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ตThe ability to find beauty in the imperfections.  An acceptance of the transience of our lives and how that can lead to a more fulfilling existence.  I link that back to our Value Drop on forgiveness for ourselves and others. 
. 
๐Ÿ“– I discovered some of these words in a little book I found in a hotel we were staying in on a trip to Japan, in the beautiful Oirase Gorge. ๐Ÿƒ
. 
โœˆ๏ธ Remember those days of travel!!! On that note I'm going to leave you with one more bonus droplet:  it's the Swedish word "Resfeber", and it translates to the restless beat of a traveller's heart before the journey begins, a mixture of anxiety and anticipation.

๐ŸŽ† This one is a cracker.  Were you brought up believing that you have to work hard to do well in life? 
. 
Here's how it translated for me:  if I wasn't working so hard that I was practically making myself sick, then I wasn't working hard enough and I should be doing more. ๐Ÿ˜ฑ  It was a variant for me of 'you've always got to do your absolute best'. 
.
๐Ÿ˜“The other message I got was that big companies are slave drivers - theyโ€™ll work you hard and abuse you to get everything they can out of you. 
.
๐Ÿ˜‚ Funnily enough, that combination of subconcious beliefs was not a particularly healthy cocktail for my mindset or my experience. ๐ŸนYes, I have done well at high levels in the corporate environment.  But there's a balance - working in stress and to burn out is not a healthy or pleasant place to be. 
.
๐Ÿ’ฅThe other cracker of a mindset around money is that money is not important.  Itโ€™s almost a moral high ground, with underlying beliefs that money is evil, or rich people have done something unethical to get it.  In the context of the law of attraction, it's pretty easy to see that mindset is not going to bring money into your life. 
.
๐Ÿ•Š๐Ÿ’ธWouldn't it be great to have peace of mind about money?  For many, that seems impossible. We think we need to 'have' the money first to then be able to have peace of mind about money.  For many, money is a source of stress, or causes conflict in their relationships.
.
๐Ÿค” If you're curious about whatโ€™s possible, then I recommend you explore the concept of having a Prosperity Mindset.  For a short but great explanation,  listen to Episode 9 of The Jim Fortin Podcast.

๐Ÿ’งLucky #13!! I planned this topic a week ago, and it fascinates me that I experienced some judgment and criticism in the last few days.
.
I made a comment on a thread that sparked a raft of comments - some in support, but also some criticising me - making assumptions about my background, and ascribing me with attitudes that are quite unfounded. 
.
I touched a raw nerve in these raw times when many of us are sensitive.  I acknowledge that the comment I made was a 'judgment', and others have judged me for that.  It sparked a valuable conversation, the learning being that Empathy PLUS Empowerment is the best support through these times. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ‘
. 
Every day we make judgments about others.  And every day others make judgments about us.  When people judge us, a huge part of that has nothing to do with us - it reflects them and the concerns they have.  The critics on my thread raised privilege, disadvantage, mental health, wealth divides, the poverty cycle, and even class segregation and racism.  These are all concerns that they have.  The reverse is also true - our judgments about others are often a reflection of ourself. 
.
๐Ÿ˜ฑThe fear of being judged is usually based on a fear of not being accepted or a fear of being inadequate.  Feelings of inadequacy often come from comparison.  Comparing ourselves with others, or an unrealistic standard.  Comparison is toxic.  Like we said in Value Drop #12, look up.  Look to others for learnings and clues to success, but don't compare. 
.
๐Ÿ›‘ Fear can stop us from expressing ourselves or trying new things.  I don't want to stop expressing myself.  I will take the risk of criticism, knowing that my voice will resonate with some.  I will take action, knowing that it is the key to my progress. 
.
One of the best quotes about judgment that I have heard is "What people say about me is none of my business." Isn't that powerful?  And freeing. 
.
And โ€œDon't compare yourself to others.  There's no comparison between the sun and the moon.  They shine when it's their time."

๐Ÿ’งThis Value Drop is short and sweet.  It's just going to take a moment (excuse the pun), because it's about being in the present.  Itโ€™s about mastering your attention to give yourself peace of mind.๐Ÿ•Š
.
๐Ÿ˜ So, this drop is actually a challenge I have for you.  The challenge is to go listen to Episode 13 of The Jim Fortin Podcast. 
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ It's a comprehensive explanation that references a wide range of 'circumstances' we live with:  not getting the results we want...... feeling like we're failing..... health issues...... worrying about the past or fear about the future. 
.
๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ It's about where you put your attention, and what you get in life as a result. 
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ You may not agree with all of it.  Some of it may be challenging or controversial, but there's gold in there if you want to mine it. 
.
๐Ÿคฉ And .... woop woop!  Weโ€™re at the halfway point for our 21 Days of Value for 2021.  We hope youโ€™re enjoying them!  And of course for your sake, to make great things happen for you in 2021, do apply at least something from them to your life! 
.
Enjoy growing and learning, drop by drop, from us to you in our Time Rich Life

๐Ÿ˜ฑ WARNING - in this Value Drop I (Jacki) share some low points.
.
๐Ÿ‘‰The conundrum:  How do you have the time to build great relationships with your children, and engage with them at a meaningful level, as well as working full time in a busy role? 
. 
I tried for years to solve it one way. Then I made a concious choice to solve it another way. 
. 
๐Ÿ˜ 3 years ago I thought I was managing to have it all - succeed in the corporate world, and have great relationships with my children. But then Charlie told me our girls had said: 

๐Ÿ’ฅโ€œWhy is mama so stressed all the time?โ€ 
๐Ÿ’ฅโ€œWhy does she have to be this way?โ€

At first, I put it down to our different ways of doing things. He is super easy going and lives in the moment.  I was strongly encouraged to always do my best growing up, and I put a big focus on getting things done. (Doing vs. being)

๐Ÿคฏ The truth was:
.
1.  Work was consuming me. 
2. I was bringing too much of what had made me successful at work (tenacity, urgency, and putting emotions/issues to the side) to the human, emotion-filled context of raising children. 
3. I knew some of the ways I had been brought up had not been good for my wellbeing, so why was I repeating it? 
4. I also knew it was a factor of time. โฐTime with my kids - the ordinary moments of the day where the extraordinary moments happen. 

๐Ÿ˜Last year, we started an online business. Soon after, the girls mentioned to Charlie how different I was now, and how great it was having me around more. 

๐Ÿ†I'm counting that as one of the most important wins in my life.  And I'm so grateful that our flexible, online business enables me to be more of the person and parent I want to be.

๐Ÿ˜ฎIt still amazes me how I thought I was fine. I didnโ€™t stop to ask whether what I was doing and who I was being (see Value Drop #5) was actually serving me or those most important to me. 

๐Ÿ‘‰Ask yourself the question. Ask your family too. Before itโ€™s too late.

๐Ÿ’งIn this Drop we're sharing how to make forgiveness your super power, and a gnarly โ€˜bonus droplet' about judgment and fear....
. 
๐Ÿ’ช Forgiveness is an active process.  Some people are better at it than others - they tend to be healthier and more satisfied with their lives. 
. 
๐Ÿ’ช Forgiveness is a skill you can learn.  A big part of it is retraining that reptillian brain when it flips into negative thinking (see Value Drop #2). You need to make a concious decision to let go of hurt, resentment, or bitterness, and the desire for vengeance and retribution. 
. 
1๏ธโƒฃ First, think of the situation or person that is the issue.  Write down on a piece of paper what happened, how you reacted and how it made you feel. 
. 
2๏ธโƒฃ Second, consider the other person and what might be driving or impacting them.  They may be at effect of their circumstances.  Let that be their problem, not yours. 
. 
3๏ธโƒฃ Third, let go of expectations or fears you have.  You can only control who you are being and what you do. 
. 
4๏ธโƒฃ Fourth, make the decision to forgive the other person and yourself.  Say it out loud.  Burn the piece of paper.  Let go of the hurt and resentment. 
. 
๐Ÿ˜ Hereโ€™s some inspiration to be that super hero for yourself:
. 
To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you - Lewis B. Smedes
. 
Forgiving you is my gift to you.  Moving on is my gift to myself - Unknown
. 
True forgiveness is when you can say Thank you for that experience - Oprah Winfrey
. 
๐Ÿคฏ Finally, a note on fear of acceptance or fear of inadequacy.  Often this is what's at the root of it all.  We'll expand on that in a Drop about judgment. 

โœ… Explore what beliefs or fears you have that are part of why the hurt or conflict arose.  Ask yourself 5 Why's.  Start with why did I react like that?  Whatever the answer is, ask why about the answer, and keep going for 4 more.  Search examples of 5 Why's to help you do it.

How good are you at forgiving?  Forgiveness is a 'muscle' you can build. ๐Ÿ’ช But maybe you are wondering WHY you would want to? 

๐Ÿ’งIn this Value Drop, we share why forgiveness is critical to your success, health and happiness.  In Value Drop #9, we'll share tips for making it real for you.

๐Ÿคฏ Science shows that unresolved conflict and resentment is terrible for your health: depression, heart disease, diabetes and other chronic conditions. 

๐Ÿ˜ Whereas forgiveness is great:  better sleep, less pain, lower cholesterol, blood pressure, less anxiety, depression and stress.

And forgiveness is critical for your enjoyment and experience of life, and your ability to make progress and achieve. 

๐Ÿ‘‰ We know from earlier Value Drops that thoughts are things, and that who you are being leads to what you get.  Being stuck in resentment or unresolved conflict keeps you stuck in negative thoughts and emotions, and is a barrier to your success. 

โœ… The power of forgiveness is going to make you rise.

๐Ÿ‘‰ What is Forgiveness?  Itโ€™s a choice that you can make, that you have 100% control of and responsibility for.  Itโ€™s the decision to let go of hurt, resentment, bitterness, and the desire for vengeance and retribution.  It's a way for you to be empowered and at cause in your life (see Value Drop #6) rather than at the effect of circumstances. 

โœ… It doesn't mean you are giving the person or situation an excuse or condoning what happened, but you do have to let go of making them wrong or making them pay. 

๐Ÿ‘‰ Forgiveness also involves forgiving yourself.  Look at how you had some part in creating the circumstances that led to your hurt or disappointment.  Take time to reflect on how you can change who you are being and what you are doing - then youโ€™ll get different results. 

๐Ÿ’งStay tuned for Drop #9.  Weโ€™ll share how to practice forgiveness, and make it a super power for you in your life.

Are you in a Problem State or a Resource State? 
.
๐Ÿง A large part of my career was as a lawyer, and a large part of that way of 'being' is analytical - identify risks or things that could go wrong for your client, and put protections in place.  Notice the focus on problems.
.
๐ŸŒบ There's also a part of me that is creative.  I had a neighbour who was in PR.  She wanted to have a go at making tivaevae (Cook Island quilts). I did too - tivaevae is part of my husband's heritage.  One day in the process of making them, my neighbour turned to me and said "Wow, you're quite creative - for a lawyer". I remember thinking of course I am!!... don't pidgeon-hole me!!!, and noticing the stereotypes people tell themselves about others....
. 
๐Ÿงฌ One thing we are pretty good at as humans is to look for the problem, focus on the negative.  As a default setting it's not a formula for a successful and happy life.
. 
๐Ÿ‘‰ So ... check in with yourself, which State are you in? 
๐Ÿ‘‰ Which do you think is a more powerful way of being?
. 
๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ PROBLEM STATE: 
Anticipates the future with dread.
Views problems as something that will not be solved. 
Believes life is hard and good moments are the exception.
Sees challenges as unmanageable and overwhelming. 
Sees problems everywhere.
Endures life.
Expects to just survive in the game of life. 
Feels like a victim in the game of life. 
. 
๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿคฉ RESOURCE STATE: 
Anticipates the future with confidence.
Views problems as something that can and will be solved.
Believes life is good while knowing it can also be difficult.
Sees challenges as things that can be managed and overcome. 
Sees possibilities everywhere.
Enjoys life.
Expects to thrive and win in the game of life. 
Feels like a player (or we would say "Prime Mover") in the game of life.
. 
๐Ÿ“š These lists are from โ€œDare To Dream and Work To Win" by Dr Tom Barrett.  It's a great book about the entrepreneurial mindset.  It debunks myths about the network marketing sector and shows how it has evolved.
.
We love evolving, and developing our resource state, in our Time Rich Life

Heard the one about the potato ๐Ÿฅ” and the egg? ๐Ÿฅš
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ The same boiling water that softens the potato hardens the egg.  It's about what you're made of, not the circumstances. 

๐Ÿค” Do you ever see successful people on social media, and find yourself thinking:

โ€˜Oh they just got lucky' or 
'I can't do that because I don't have [xyz].

๐Ÿ’ฅ First of all:  Donโ€™t be fooled.  Their life wonโ€™t be perfect, and everything has not fallen into their lap. 
๐Ÿ’ฅ Second:  Some people succeed and live happy, satisfied lives despite facing many adversities.  Why?  Because they are not at the effect of their circumstances.  They are what we call in our business a "Prime Mover". 

๐Ÿฅ‡ So how do you become a Prime Mover? 

๐Ÿ‘‰ See problems or difficulties as obstacles to overcome.  Lessons to learn.  A step closer to your goal. 
๐Ÿ‘‰ Know that your vision for what is possible and who you are being, can trump your circumstances (see Be.Do.Have in Value Drop #5). 
๐Ÿ‘‰ Apply your thoughts and actions towards the goals you want to achieve.  Eliminate self-limiting thinking (it attracts what you don't want!).
๐Ÿ‘‰ Know that you are responsible for the experiences and outcomes you have had in your life to date, and are also for the future. 

๐Ÿ“– Hereโ€™s some inspo to help drive it home:

"People are always blaming their circumstances ... The people who get on in this world are the people who look for the circumstances they want, and, if they can't find them, make them." - George Bernard Shaw
. 
"Your current life circumstances are the result of decisions made and actions taken in the past, whether ten years ago or ten minutes ago.  They are only circumstances.  They do not define you." - Dean Jackson. 
. 
"So here's the flash: Continuing to live life as a victim of circumstance, forever focusing on what's wrong with everything and everybody, will never, ever, bring the life desired.  It will only bring one thing: more of whatever it is weโ€™re wanting so desperately to change.โ€ - Lynn Grabhorn

๐Ÿ“– Have you heard the metaphor of the new year being like a book with 365 blank pages, and you get to write each chapter? 
.
๐Ÿ We also like the thought of a pristine sandy beach with no footprints, washed smooth and fresh by the tide.  What patterns will you make?  What will you create? 
.
๐ŸŒ€ This is another local beach near us where we walk around the cliffs when the tide is low.  It was another magnificent early summer day, and Charlie couldnโ€™t resist the creative urge to make a little beach art. 
.
๐Ÿš In our personal development programs we have the concept of โ€˜spiralling upโ€™. 
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ How are you going to spiral up this year?

Come on the journey with us with the โ€˜21 Value Drops for 2021โ€™ that weโ€™re sharing throughout January.

It was another magnificent early summer day, and Charlie couldnโ€™t resist the creative urge to make a little beach art. . ๐Ÿš In our personal development programs we have the concept of โ€˜spiralling upโ€™. . ๐Ÿ‘‰ How are you going to spiral up this year? . Come on the journey with us with the โ€˜21 Value Drops for 2021โ€™ that weโ€™re sharing throughout January. . ๐ŸŒ€ Letโ€™s spiral up together. . We love sharing the goodness, from our Time Rich Life ๐Ÿงกโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’› . . . . . #blankpage #writeabook #newchapter #newyearnewstart #newyear #2021 #freshstart #newbeginning #beach #beachart #spiralup #spiral #21daysofvalue #timerichlife #pristine #nature #naturelover #instagood

Hereโ€™s Value Drop #5 (of 21):

๐Ÿงโ€โ™€๏ธ Have you heard of the Be.Do.Have model?  Most of us live this back to front - we think โ€˜If only I had this, I could do that, and then I could be happyโ€™. 
.
๐Ÿ”„ The key to a great life is to switch that on its head. 
.
๐Ÿ”Ž Focus first on who you are BEING.  Then DO the things that are consistent with that person (that identity). And you will HAVE the things that flow from that. 
.
๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™€๏ธ One clue to working out who you are being is to look at your emotional state.  Are you in a negative emotional state, or a positive one? (BONUS DROP building on Value Drop #4:  when you are expressing gratitude itโ€™s impossible to be on the negative side!)
.
Hereโ€™s an example: 
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ Perhaps youโ€™re bored with your work, or frustrated that your income is capped by what your employer pays.  You want to be promoted, work on more exciting projects, or even start a business of your own, but you donโ€™t feel confident to ask or youโ€™re worried about failing. 
๐Ÿ‘‰ Opportunity and exciting projects require you to step outside your comfort zone, experiment and try something new, being prepared to make mistakes.  Have you heard the saying โ€˜fail your way to successโ€™? 
๐Ÿ‘‰ That is the entrepreneurial mindset and way of being.  If you arenโ€™t willing to step outside of your comfort zone and be the person that experiments, fails and learns, then youโ€™ll stay stuck. 
.
๐Ÿ’ฅ A fantastic resource to go deeper and hear this principle in action is The Jim Fortin Podcast Episode 11.  He explains Be.Do.Have in a super powerful way, in the context of those of us who feel like we never have enough time.  I challenge you to listen to it, and of course, apply it in your life.

๐Ÿ˜ซ Feel like you're not getting what you want in life?  Money, relationships, career?
. 
๐Ÿ›‘ Stop focusing on what you don't have. Focus instead on giving, and on what you've got. 
. 
๐Ÿฅฐ Heard of the law of attraction?  When you focus on what you don't have, you perpetuate that lack in your life.  Building off our earlier Drops, create a mindset of abundance first, to then have abundance in your life.  That can take some retraining of the reptillian brain, but you have the tools and you can do it. 
. 
๐Ÿ™ A quick and easy way to create abundance is gratitude.  Find gratitude for what you have.  Make a regular practice of thanking others.  Start a gratitude journal and write in it every day.  Then more will come your way. 
. 
๐Ÿค” If you think you don't have anything to be grateful for, then wow, you've got a huge opportunity.  Start with thinking about all the things that support you.  How about water? ๐Ÿ’ง (See our post about charity water for a reality check.)
. 
๐Ÿ‘ The more you practice gratitude, the more you'll find you have to be grateful for.
. 
โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’› We strive to practice gratitude every day, and our purpose is to make lives better - our lives, and the lives of others.  One way we give is by volunteering. ๐Ÿคฒ When I volunteer, I can't help but feel hugely grateful for all that I have, and I get a huge amount of satisfaction out of giving. ๐Ÿคฉ Those good feelings create abundance in my life.  They raise my frequency, and my results. โœ…
. 
๐Ÿ” AINY is an Andean concept for reciprocity.  It loosely translates as "today for you, tomorrow for me". It's the concept of giving first to be able to get, without expectation.  Letting go of the expectation is the key. 
. 
๐Ÿ”ฌ Science shows that giving activates dopamines in the brain, social connection and trust.  It helps you live longer and healthier. 
.
๐Ÿ‘‰ More inspiration: 
.
"We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we giveโ€ - Winston Churchill
.
"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it awayโ€ - Pablo Picasso

Hereโ€™s post number 2 in our Best of 2020 series. ๐Ÿ˜ 
.
Itโ€™s all about recognising and celebrating our blessings in whatโ€™s been a pretty huge year! 
.
๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ‘งโ€๐Ÿ‘ง Feeling very blessed to have got to spend so much quality time together as a family. Not just because of lockdown, but because we took the leap to change our lives with an online business. ๐Ÿ‘
.
โœ… I got to escape from the corporate world that was consuming too much of my time and energy.  Life is so much better now I get to have real time to spend with my family - being there for our girls as they grow up and having lots of fun with them, supporting my Mum deal with my Dadโ€™s dementia, and Charlie and I getting to have lots of quality time together. ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ‘จ
.
๐Ÿ“ธ These are just a few fun and meaningful moments from the year:  The 4 of us together with our dogs (Mango and Mae Mobely) for the video we got produced for our business. The girls and I with our Tatcha face masks. Charlie and the girls being โ€˜zombiesโ€™ dancing to Michael Jackson Thriller (just a typical night in our house having a laugh while clearing the dishes after dinner!). Eva turning 13 (!) and Charlotte turning 18 (!). Doing some volunteering as a family for Sustainable Coastlines.  Jumping with joy on a family holiday in Akaroa.  And my lovely mum who is such an amazing woman, an incredible mum and grandma, and has had so much to deal with these past few years with Dadโ€™s dementia journey - we are all in it together and supporting each other through the challenges. ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ’—

Hereโ€™s the first of 4 in our Best of 2020. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜
.
I mentioned in my last post the importance of RACโ€™ing your wins (Recognise, Acknowledge, Celebrate). 
.
๐Ÿ™ Itโ€™s also about gratitude.  In a year where our worlds have been so impacted, we are very grateful for the opportunities and the good times we have had. 
.
โœˆ๏ธ Although we couldnโ€™t do any international travel, and lockdown kept us local, we grabbed every chance we could. 
.
โœˆ๏ธ We flew to the South Island in June and December, enjoying the beauty of Aotearoa New Zealand. 
.
๐Ÿฆž Gorgeous seafood, frolicking seals, ๐Ÿฆญ and majestic scenery in Kaikoura. 
.
๐Ÿ” The epic Aoraki Mt Cook. ๐ŸŒŒ Star gazing in the Dark Sky Reserve, ๐Ÿšค the amazing Glacier Lake Tour, ๐Ÿฆbeautiful lavender fields and lavender ice cream, ๐ŸŸ delicious fresh Mt Cook Alpine Salmon, ๐Ÿฅพepic hikes like the Hooker Valkey Track, and the majestic scenery the mountains and surrounding lakes have to offer. ๐Ÿž ๐ŸŒ…
.
๐Ÿง–โ€โ™€๏ธ The heavenly Maruia Hot Springs and sauna. โ›„๏ธ Making snowmen on the Lewis Pass. 
.
๐Ÿ  The incredible mosaics at The Giants House in Akaroa, treasures at Little River Gallery ๐ŸŽจ, the gorgeous French influences in Akaroa township. ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท Such a shame the weather stopped us swimming with dolphins.๐Ÿฌ Weโ€™ll definitely do it another time. 
.
๐ŸŒธ The stunning cherry blossom festival south of Hamilton in Spring.  And the gorgeous lupins in the Tekapo area in December. ๐Ÿ’Ÿ 

๐Ÿ›ฃ We also flew down the North Island to pick up our gorgeous 1962 Cadillac de Ville and do a road trip to take her home.  You can see from other posts this year, sheโ€™s become a real part of the family and given us so many good times. 
.
๐Ÿ™ So grateful for the freedom and flexibility we have with our business - no need to ask for leave or be restricted to travel at certain times.  Our business comes with us, keeps working without us, and fits around the edges of the things that come first - family, travel and fun.
