Live Your Dream

No matter who you are you deserve to live your dream.

At New Insights dreams are very much our business – that’s making them a reality, of course.

Our methodology is a simple yet powerful one.

We train those people – who are passionate about helping other people – to become great life coaches. Then we encourage them to go out into the world using their newfound toolkit and structured coaching system to bring personal freedom, self confidence and growth to what we hope will be dozens or even hundreds of others from all walks of life!

“The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”

Break the Cycle

As the year slowly draws to a close, I appreciate that reading personal development style blogs starts to slip down the priority listing for many people.

And yet, as we prepare for a temporary interruption in our day-to-day routines, this is without doubt the very best time to sow the seeds for positive, meaningful change in our lives.

For many, the end of the year brings with it an almost obsessive focus on trying to complete unfinished tasks and a sudden rush to put right the effects of procrastination earlier in the year.

It’s also a time when many, particularly those in the southern hemisphere where the summer holidays beckon, start their preparations for taking some time out from work and their normal obligations.

For those who desire more than just temporary relief from the ‘rat race’ this time of enforced change is the perfect time to plan to break the cycle!

“All things are difficult before they are easy.”

Experience Life

My nineteen year old son bade us goodbye at the airport on Monday as he embarked on a five month trip to China where he will be teaching English as part of an internship arrangement during his post school gap year.

Just over two months ago my daughter, who chose a post university gap year, departed for Chicago in the the US to take up a summer camp counselling job before heading off to explore the West Coast with a friend.

Jenni and I reflected yesterday on our first serious ‘empty nest’ experience and how it felt to have our two offspring half way around the world but in opposite directions.

experience life through travel

For both of our kids these trips are the culmination of dreams that began some years ago. Whereas one has been strongly drawn to the East and Eastern culture, the other has always had a fascination for the land of Uncle Sam.

An Inspiring Story

No matter how serious the challenges you face, your dreams can become real if you put your mind to it.

With the 2014 FIFA World Cup currently in full swing, it seems appropriate to share a true story of a footballing nature, that proves this point.

Inspired by the FIFA World Cup held in Mexico in 1986, a group of young boys with a dream of being champions, initiated the humble beginnings of Panyee FC.

Logic dictates that Panyee football club, given its location, should never exist – and yet it is now regarded as one of southern Thailand’s best.

The story (which was relayed in an advert for TMB Bank in 2011) is told here by one of the boys.

A 21st Century Career

I clicked on the red button, took off my headset and leaned back in my chair, before stretching out my arms and pursing my lips to force out a deep breath of air.

I had completed just the sixth in a series of thirteen sessions with a young lady life coach whom I had not yet even set eyes on, yet here I was, happily trying to come to terms with an amazing change of mindset that she had already helped me to bring about.

I felt excited about my future – confident, assured and impatient to get going – a complete turnaround from being anxious, confused and even resentful just a few short months ago.

“Get excited and enthusiastic about your own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire – you can smell it, taste it, and see it from a mile away.”

– Denis Waitley
