Take up the Challenge!

“Our doubts are traitors and make’ us lose the good we often might win by fearing to attempt.” – Measure for Measure (Lucio, Act 1 Scene 5)

“To know and not ‘do’ is to not know at all”

This is just one of the inspirational mantras I have on post-its around my office after writing up my notes from the weekend.

Being accepted to be part of the National Speakers Association of New Zealand Inc. and then attending the National Conference over the weekend has been the most inspiring,  challenging, informative and uplifting experiences I’ve had in a long time.

The experience of interacting with local, national and international speakers, receiving coaching, collaboration and open-hearted generosity has been humbling and heartwarming.

Pushing myself to take up the opportunity to stand on stage in front of some of the best in the world and be challenged, encouraged, corrected and taught highlighted for me that fear really is the only roadblock.

WHY wouldn’t I want the opportunity to learn from the best, to be challenged and pushed to be ‘more’?

To honour our human dignity we must strive to be the best version of ourselves if we are to make life-enhancing connections with others and the environment.

I’m constantly challenged by this thought.

When I look back on my life I don’t want to have ‘missed out’ and after this weekend I’ve just got SO much more to do!

I’m in absolute awe of the incredible people I came into contact with. What an honour.

Learn. Share. Grow. Belong
