Trilogy Blog 2: Positive thinking and doing things that scare you

It’s February already, and this year seems to be moving at a fast past. It has been a very busy past few weeks for me and Trilogy, with a trip to Seychelles for consultation meetings, a junior stew training course and now a senior stew course. And that was just 3 weeks!

This got me thinking: last year I was wishing for things to take off with work, and wondering if I was on the right track. For not the first time in my life, I have realised that if we visualise our dreams and take steps towards what we would like to be doing, it usually comes back at us with abundance. But, we have to be willing to put in the hard work and stay the distance; nothing comes for free in this life.

Without getting too deep here, we often ask the wrong question when we want something to happen. We ask, “Why can’t I?” instead of “How can I?” Positivity attracts positivity. If you put it out there, it is bound to come back – usually tenfold. But, so often we are too scared to try, or we don’t believe in ourselves enough. I love the quote, “Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest of your life. Tip toe if you must, but take the step!”

This really speaks to me. Each time I have overcome my fear and taken that first step it has led me somewhere exciting. Even if the outcome isn’t what I expected, or the ride wasn’t always smooth, conquering your fear is just so worth it in the end. One of the reasons I love training people to get into yachting, is that I get the opportunity to share this excitement of the unknown and the challenging.

In my last post I wondered where 2019 would lead me. It looks like I won’t get a chance to wonder too much as I won’t have the time! Bring it on, I say.
