I think one of the main reasons I have so many wonderful networks is because I am a natural cheerleader. There's no way I would steer my friends into doing something stupid, wreckless or careless with their business, careers or family lives but if they are thinking about doing something good - I'm right there to cheer them on. And they know it.

Uncertainty is as constant as change. Hand in hand they often go. One causing the other and the other causing it. Having someone listen and support you is important. Someone who's been there and done that - and come out of whatever it was successfully - is even better. That's not to say that someone who hasn't made good choices isn't a great cheerleader either.

I've learned to value my cheerleaders because they want the best for me. They're excited when I tell them about new initiatives. They're helpful when I tell them the challenges I currently face. They're genuinely happy for me when I achieve my milestones. If someone springs to mind as you're reading this - it's likely that's your cheerleader.

If no-one springs to mind straight away, think about those situations in business, in sport, in parenting etc. You may have multiple cheerleaders. If no-one springs to mind again... drop me a note! I love to hear about others' success.

And what do I mean by Nike got it right? If it's good - JUST DO IT.

:heart: I use the word divine but I mean it. Attached is a picture of my two girls, one a Maori mermaid at the local santa parade and the other wearing our Santa stockings on her feet(!) and a Christmas hat.

:heart: These two young ladies inspire me more than anything else in the world. I would turn the world around for them if I could. I feel no less unique for it - rather I feel blessed to be part of world full of parents, each wanting the best for their child and sharing that worldly understanding with all other parents internationally.

:heart: A parents love knows no discrimination. Before I had children I thought about what I would do until I die, now I think past that, like what can I do for them even when I am gone? Their effervescent personalities, groundhog day positivity - [I]literally every morning without fail[/I] - and their anxiousness to succeed drives me to show them that dreams aren't something they only have when they go to sleep, that security isn't something someone gives you but that you can have within yourself and that true love isn't something they have to work for or spend years seeking ... they just have to look around them and see what's already there.

:thumbsup: They don't inspire me to think differently - they inspire me to "do differently". Rather than tell them they can do things it's important to me to [U]show them[/U] they can do anything they put their mind to. I live to be an example to them, if not exactly for what they want to be, but as a living example that we CAN be what we want to be no matter what it is we want to be.

:book: In business... I have a Happy File - it's a folder full of thank you cards and letters, photo's of them and other loved ones, farewell cards from previous colleagues, love letters from my honey in his hay days ([I]here's hoping he doesn't see this blog![/I]) to inspire me whenever I need it and to remind me that there are so many wonderful things I can be grateful for.

:wings: Divine... Well I'm not religious exactly but if anything makes me believe that there is a bigger purpose for the time we are alive here on earth, I think my inspiration, my meaning for being, is to care for these two angels. Likewise I know I will not be the only one, in fact I'd be very surprised if I am the only one, who thinks the same.

Here in New Zealand, Spring season doesn't arrive until September. BUT celebrating another country's season is just as good a reason as any to make a spring "to do" list and wipe out some of those little things.

Like dust, the little things we've neglected to do or run out of time to do, build up. Sitting quietly on the surface, waiting silently for our attention. Do we dust? No, because there's more important things to do of course.

If we don't make that concerted effort to complete them, we eventually start getting allergy symptoms... headaches.

They might have been small specs of dust initially, just a 'to do' that wasn't urgent or important. But as time goes on they did become important and then as the final deadline drew near for these little things, they also became urgent. Funnyhow that happens.

I defiantly refused to make any New Years Resolutions because I didn't see the point in making the first day of a year a particularly special day for life changing decisions. My attitude was "why does it have to be January 1st?"

Needless to say the times I didn't make resolutions I also didn't achieve anything! Now I think "what's wrong with everyday!" and look forward to using the energy that entertaining a little cheesy-ness can do. If anything, it does you no harm. And it gives your workmates a good chance to smile at your apparent youthful absurdity ...until they see the results!

It's time to capture the energy these spring cleaning cliches offer us! Sharing some of your newfound excitement for season changes, and other excuses for positive activity, is yet another way you can help yourself and your clients, your family and friends. Enjoy!

Happy Spring Everyone![/B][/SIZE]
