Does you motivation dwindle at the very last step?

I notice something again and again when I present at conferences: people who’ve been so fired up, so diligent in doing everything they can to achieve their goals, have suddenly stalled, sometimes at the last hurdle. I even talked to a woman who was one step away from achieving a black belt in martial arts, but she stopped training!

Expect challenge and deal with it

My young boy Matthew, at 8 years of age was playing a competitive game of junior Australian Rules football. I was the coach of his football team. One day, in the middle of the game, he’s trying to get the football and a whole stack of kids are falling on top of him.

What Difference Do You Want To make?

Cancer doesn’t care when it strikes. It doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor, fit or lazy. A few years ago a melanoma claimed the life of a 26-year-old north Queensland man, a super fit triathlete.

Make an 'early inclusion'

It makes sense to include people rather than exclude them. But when we fail, when things don’t go right for us, the last thing we feel like doing is letting people into our lives. But that’s the time when we absolutely have to let people in. Rather than exclude people from our lives, it’s the time when we have to include others.

Let me give you an example: I was speaking in the country recently and there was a farmer, I’ll call him ‘Alan’, in his early 40s, the prime of his life, but he felt like a failure. His wife came up to me and said, ‘Pete, I really want you to talk to him, I’m really worried about him. He’s very upset, but he’s shutting everyone out.’
