7 Lessons learned in 2016

1. Do business in Equilibrium
Equilibrium is not a place for emotion. You cannot allow yourself to be hurt, disappointed or lost. As it is all about rejection. Which we dread. Handle rejection carefully and emotionless. In business keep not your heart upon your sleeve but your trumps on the table.
The moments of rejection are the pillars on which each business is constructed and construed as the beginning of a beautiful “friendship”. Just learn and build. Together.

2. Time, time is on my mind! Above all we have been given time and the ability to make decisions. And they are correct if we allow ourselves patience and time to consider.

3. “Dream, Believe, Dare, Do!” – Walt Disney. Your dreams are part of who you are… so keep them close. You can go to bed with them at night provided in the morning you dare tailor up a plan. Or let them shimmer from the other realm and push them into reality the first chance you’ve got.

4. Creating trust. Seth Godin says that the best way to create a brand is through creating trust in the marketplace. With everything available and within your reach. If you are “the unburnt”, you use it to create trust that if needed, you will burn foes. If your skills burn holes into customers’ problems,  you are on the right path.

5. Storytelling. Stories are our meat and our magic. No matter what we do, we are story weavers. The package of our skills, abilities and accomplishments is always a story. Keep your followers with you within your story!

6. Stay healthy! Has become my other business and it has started to pick up… I have never felt better and stronger and creativity hits oftener. I do admit it sometimes hits me with a club, but I can always count on my humor to cover up the bruises.

7. Happiness is the root of all life. “One has to spend so many years in learning how to be happy.” –George Elliot. I had but one year to clear my vision impaired by unhappiness and clouds of doubt. And to find a little bit of wisdom.

What I want for the new 2017
I would wish each day to breathe life into all my projects! And to be able to nurture relationships with the tremendous courage of a newly bloomed cherry tree.
For You I wish above all that everything you have dreamed to become real and to no longer strive but for the happiness in your soul. The rest is here.

She is primarily a teacher of English. Also her mind is lured by goodies like finance, economics, interest rates, the stock market, as she has a hankering for how the money is made. Nevertheless she is a dreamer on a cloud...As dreams cost nothing... In ordinary days she is a word-weaver for everything and everything that breathes. In the best of days she just follows the seasons by means of bike, skis, or roller-skates. She is grateful to all colors of the world and to people who read, laugh, smile and drop a line here, or on her email.

    It is nice to read all this.
    … Walt Disney. Your dreams are part of who you are … I keep them close.
    I have always done this, it is sad to live without. Through the years, people forget the dreams, people do not dream enough.

    To be honest, it is an original article , given the topic and the general trend and writings that I had, by now, the chance to read, that fall in the ” lessons learnt in that year” category. Really enjoyed reading it and actually discovered interesting lessons , good luck with the other half of 2017 !
