Some recent events sparked the following thought, which led to the tonight’s blog. If you like the thought, or have something to add, leave a comment below and let’s get social. Don’t be a passive consumer! Let’s take the reins and lead together, or not.
Why try to manage life, when you can lead. I’ve noticed there is often an emphasis on management in any of the companies I’ve worked for, (and I’ve worked for a few). In my opinion, to manage is to strive, or to push up a hill a weight that is often too big for anyone to carry. Life is more enjoyable, and accessible when we understand the value in the team around us, and in the opportunities we have at hand.
When we approach life from a leadership point of view, we will see the following:
1. Achieve greater results
2. Inspire others to follow
Just another random thought… I know it’s been a while since my last post. I’m editing my first fiction novel, at the moment, and taking my own advice (and the advice of Kid President) in Being A Light; and pursuing my dream with dedication, hard work and a lot of faith. Wish me luck!
What a super week! From Oreo Cookie day, to World Book today, to International Woman’s Day. I have laughed, smiled, almost cried and had the BEST time celebrating this week. However, today, is a day that is really special. Today is the day we celebrate the beautiful woman in and around our world.
A woman’s strength is found in her ability to rise and be courageous, and to love in the face of fear.
If you haven’t had a great experience in life, I’m sorry. I hope that we all find someone in our world to be thankful for. If you feel like there’s no-one to appreciate you today, then let me. Have a listen to the song below and find out what I think about, when I think about YOU.
To all my inspirational friends and family around the world: Happy Mother’s Day!!!!
Being a woman is a great privilege and honour; and sharing this world with some of the finest people on the planet is a true blessing. Men, never under-estimate the value of the woman in your world. Life is better lived together! Woman this goes for you too. Let’s get better at helping our sisters out.
Like the title says, Merry Christmas everybody!!
Thank you for following this blog in 2012. Not only are we celebrating Christmas at The Social Exchange, but it’s our first birthday too!!
What a year it has been. This year I have left one job, started a business, got serious about finishing my novel and became a proud winner of Creative Pioneers 2012 for my business idea Tailor Made Social. There are many highlights to this year, along with many challenges, however; I am so excited for the new year and all the super news to come.
Just before I go I wanted to share with you one little lesson I’ve learnt this year that has made the closing of 2012 extra special, and that is: Never quit in a dip.
Well that’s all folks from The Social Exchange in 2012!! Look forward to sharing more with you next year on some incredible things that are about to take place. Wishing you a verry Merry Christmas!!!!
Watch this powerful music video by Rudimental. It’s a powerful and moving story of how our choices can lead us on two very different paths.
Which leads me to the conclusion that it doesn’t matter how you start in life, it matters how you finish. Every day we make choices that affect our tomorrow, which means we have the power to choose how tomorrow looks.
What you do today will flow into the Friday and so forth, so even if some challenges come your way today, how you respond to them will determine the altitude of your tomorrow.
We can choose many things today. Some of these may be:
- hope or depression
- love or hate
- kindness or selfishness
- curry or soup
- boots or flats
- press on or give up
- give or don’t give
- positive or negative
They are greatly varied; but big or small they all add up. Here’s a good question to ask ourselves daily – are the decisions we make leading us to where we want to go in life?

Two very important things, and yet there are times when we seem to misplace these very expensive assets. Whether we lose them through our actions, or circumstances, we cannot afford to ignore what they are, and what they mean for our life, business, project, or relationship. Failing to weigh up the cost of time, and value can have serious consequences. Evaluate what these words mean to your business, change them if need be, but whatever you do; Make sure you include them in life and activity. Keep them right at the front, and do not digress.
