It felt like teenagers are another species altogether

As a mother of two teenagers, I was always second guessing myself, about whether I was saying the right stuff. It felt like teenagers are another species altogether, until I remembered that I was part of that species not so long ago. Thinking back to those years I vowed I would never be like my parents, I would be cool and never do all the embarrassing things my parents did. Fast forward to 2016 and I sometimes catch myself “being my parents”

As the saying goes “If you can’t beat them join them”, so I decided to get back my cool with these new skill sets:

  • The one thing you should never, ever say – “When I was your age”. That just closes down any chance you may have to communicate with your teenager.
  • You need to learn the lingo to be in with the times – we are at a time where everything is going at a much faster pace and shorter attention spans. The lingo of today is acronyms , if you don’t know the meaning of OMG, WTF, ROFLMAO, BRB, then its time you learnt fast.
  • I heard my son say the other day, that if you’re not on facebook you don’t exist. I wouldn’t want to be put into that category, so if you have been ignoring social media, its time you start “existing”. Facebook, twitter and instagram are not going anywhere so if you want to remain relevant, I suggest you start taking a few lessons from your kids. A quick hint, don’t send your kids a friend request on facebook, if they do accept it, but don’t comment on anything they post, its very uncool.
  • Music is like a religion for teenagers, so you know what you need to do right. If your girls are into One Direction or your boys like Nicky Minaj, you have to learn the lyrics, who knows you may actually enjoy it. Quick tip, don’t ever say the music from your generation was better.
  • Pay attention to what you wear, especially when your kids are having their friends around. I also prefer to be comfortable, but it won’t kill you to put on some heels and make up once in a while.
  • Eat with your fingers, burp and use that colorful language when someone cuts infront of you in traffic (when its just you and the kids) they will realize you are human too, and can help to ease tense situations. They’ve already heard and seen everything anyway.
  • Do cool stuff, like trading in that station wagon for a sports car, or turn up the volume when their favourite song is on the radio and sing to it.

Make your relationship with your teenager count.

You can choose words like I am strong, happy, wealthy, healthy

Professional Relationship Coaches in Johannesburg
Relationship Coach Pretoria

During the month of love, we at Success Focus are focusing on relationships, the relationship with yourself, your loved one’s, colleagues and the rest of the world. Be sure to catch all the articles in this series.

My Relationship with Myself

Whatever comes after the words I am is entirely up to you. You can choose words like I am weak, worthless, depressed, sad and have results such as sickness, depression and even death show up in your life or you can choose words like I am strong, happy, wealthy, healthy and prosperous. As soon as you said those positive words, didn’t you sit up and feel confident, like a waterfall washing over you, leaving you refreshed. I Am, affirmations create a sense that “I Am” worthy and powerful. Nobody should ever forget that they matter in this world.

Nobody can make you feel the way do, except you. So why not choose to live in harmony with the world rather than in resistance. Living in harmony does not mean you have to forget about your uniqueness, it just means that no matter what challenges show up in your life, you will achieve that which is important to you. Use the challenges as opportunities, opportunities to overcome your fears and develop your strength.

As parents we sometimes rob ourselves of loving and caring for ourselves, thinking that our children should always come first, at any cost. By doing this we are turning our children into bullies and self-centred monsters. They will start to believe that they are all important, and mums feelings are not. The world out there will teach them a very different lesson, no matter how special mum thinks they are. Mum’s need for peace and happiness is in no way less than her sons need for playing soccer.

We are all whole and complete, the only person that can make us feel any less is the person in the mirror. To keep that person in the mirror happy you need to remind yourself daily that God moulded you in his image, shouldn’t you love yourself the way God loved you.

Material wealth is a basic human necessity

Despite having more comforts than the generations before us, we seem to have less happiness and peace than our predecessors. Living a fulfilled life sometimes sounds like an unobtainable myth. Self-development is the only answer.

Self-development is not a new concept and can be found in the relics of every religion on earth. Today I will attempt to combine ancient wisdom with modern relevance to give you some pertinent advice on how to live a more fulfilled life.

Spiritual Growth Johannesburg
Spiritual Coach Pretoria

Because we do not live on this earth alone it is important that we have a code of honour, dignity and respect towards ourselves, our fellow human beings, and all other living beings. It is the basis of individual progress and social welfare. Righteous conduct develops character.

  • Material Wealth

Material wealth is a basic human necessity. Without material security we cannot keep our body and soul satisfied. One cannot have thoughts of emotional and spiritual growth if his material needs are not fulfilled.

  • Satisfaction of legitimate desires

Desires when unrestrained lead to disintegration of the body and mind, yet when suppressed , create an unhealthy state of body and mind, making life drab. What then is legitimate desire? Pursuit of wealth and enjoyment, unless guided by righteous conduct, can make a person greedy and selfish.

  • Freedom of Spirit

The quest for freedom is what distinguishes a human being from other creatures. Freedom is the ultimate goal of life. A man lives a fulfilled life when he discovers that his soul is the soul of all living beings and things, and that his happiness and peace depends on the happiness of all.

Self-development is an inner maturity which comes during the course of time and with experience. No one can give these experiences to us, they come to a person who is ready to face life’s challenges. Self-development is a life-long process, it is learning from the successes of others as well as from their mistakes. An old proverb says “Learn from others mistakes, because you cannot live long enough to make all the mistakes” .

A PLEA FOR PEACE IN SOUTH AFRICA

Motivational Coach Johannesburg
Spiritual SpeakerSuyan Budhoo

It fills my heart with pain and hurt that we even have to speak about xenophobic attacks in 2015, in South Africa, where Nelson Mandela passed the baton to all 52 million citizens to live in peace and unity.

Tata Mandela and so many freedom fighters lived in our neighbouring countries as refugees during the Apartheid regime and were even given Sudanese and Tanzanian passports in order to overcome Apartheid. If it wasn’t for those countries protecting and supporting our freedom fighter, we probably would not even have this democratic nation that we are taking advantage of.

I am reminded of Abraham Lincoln’s words: “Those who deny freedom to others deserve it not for themselves.”  It’s the people who were never involved in the freedom struggle themselves that are leading and instigating these Xenophobic attacks. It is a sad day, when people of the same race, religion and continent choose to only see the differences and not the similarities that we possess.

Perhaps it’s because the youth did not have to fight for their freedom that they have so little respect for what they have. Theylack responsibility and it shows in their actions, maybe because freedom has come freely to them. Ask any struggle stalwart or any mother who lost her son, fighting for liberation, if freedom was free? We received our freedom through the blood and tears of thousands of people, respect the blood of our men and women, by respecting the freedom they fought so hard for.

I love my beloved South Africa for the rainbow nation that we so proudly proclaim to be. I am grateful for not having to fight for my freedom. I feel privileged to be living in an open society where our Constitutional rights are protected.  But all this means nothing if we cannot live in peace and harmony in our beautiful country.

xenophobi-different raises people

Some of the visions shared by the Parliament of World’s Religions is of a just, peaceful and sustainable world marked by these characteristics:

  1. Religious and spiritual communities live in harmony and contribute to a better world from their riches and wisdom and compassion.
  2. Religious and cultural fears and hatreds are replaced with understanding and respect.
  3. People everywhere come to know and care for their neighbours.
  4. The richness of human and religious diversity is woven into the fabric of communal, civil, societal and global life.
  5. The earth and all life are cherished, protected, healed and restored.
  6. All people commit to living out their highest values and aspirations.

The hope for our future lies in our hands, as our present lay in the hands of our forefathers. Government, religious leaders, countries all around the world are calling for peace, to whose call will you heed?

Our own negative thoughts sabotage our dreams before it is given a chance to take flight

Durban Life Coaches Pretoria
Pretoria Life Coach – Suyan Budhoo

If you feel at times that you are leading a double life, acting as one person and wanting to be another, you are not alone. So often the person we really are, and the person the world sees are two different people. We fantasize about having jobs such as a painter, instead we choose the traditional jobs such as teaching or medicine.

We think about what others may say if we choose to follow our dreams. More than outsiders, our own negative thoughts sabotage our dreams before it is given a chance to take flight.

Happiness of Life
Life Coaching DurbanSuyan Budhoo

Man is by nature complex, he is capable of moulding his life the way he wants to. Unlike animals, whose only mission is to survive, man has been blessed with the ability to live beyond mere survival. Man has been given emotions, intuitions and feelings all to be used and nurtured.

We are afraid to choose our own happiness for the fear of causing others pain. If you are happy, you can only cause more happiness to others. Fear not where the money will come from to support your family, because when you follow your passion, the money shall and must follow. People often thrive beyond expectation once they pay heed to their souls calling.

As Mahatma Gandhi said “ To believe in something and not to live it, is dishonest”. I believe there is good in the world. We want our partners and children to be honest with us and yet we live our entire lives being dishonest with ourselves.

South African Life Coach
South African Life Coach DurbanSuyan Budhoo

When what we do and what we believe in is in disunion, a number of evils set in, in our health, relationships and even our finances. When our mind, body and soul are all in sync, we enjoy good health, brilliant relationships and an abundance in every sphere of our lives.

If you are still living a dualistic life, still looking for meaning and trying to find your passion and it seems like the hardship will never end, do not despair. Suffering and hardship is necessary for it is only through own experiences that we grow. We cannot appreciate success until we’ve known failure. Embrace those challenges, learn from them and move on. When you move on from being who the world thinks you are, to being who you really are, then only will you know true happiness and peace. Read More Articles like this at http://www.successfocus.co.za

Despite doing your daily affirmations, positive self-talk and mind power exercises

Life Coach Pretoria
Mind Power Exercise

I don’t know about you but I feel like I’m being bombarded with self-development and wealth building information from every direction. But what do you when, despite doing your daily affirmations, positive self-talk and mind power exercises, nothing seems to be taking you closer to the life of your dreams, as they promised in the dvd’s.

Do you just give up, or do you persist? Could you have been wrong for buying into all the hype? I have visited this question many times during my lifetime and this is what I came up with. Nothing stays the same. A simple example, we may travel the same route daily, but we never see the same cars as we saw the previous day. We need to accept that change is the only constant. As we adapt our driving to different conditions so too must we adapt our lives to different circumstances that we are faced with.

Business Mentor Johannesburg
Life Coach Pretoria

In order to face all the spin balls and googlies on a daily basis, there are a few things that can help us stay in the game.

Always expect better days, as I’ve said before nothing stays the same, so if you are having a bad day, chin up, tomorrow can only get better.

A smile can brighten up not only your day, but the other persons day as well, it costs you nothing and yet you are wealthier for sharing it.

Stay positive, if you are going to think, why not think good thoughts. Stress has never solved anything, infact it robs you of your ability to think clearly when there maybe a solution closer than you think.

I am sure you have heard that what you focus on, is what you receive. Instead of focusing on having a successful business or finding a perfect job, you worry about whether you will make it in business or if you will ever find that perfect job. That is why despite, doing all your affirmations and mind-power exercises you are not manifesting the expected results.

In all the self–development courses that I have attended, very few actually speak about relaxing and staying calm whilst you are trying to attract that which you want.

Personal Life Coach Pretoria
Self Development Course Pretoria

Unless you can remain calm, you are not going to be able to manifest the results that you want. Our minds can be restless and can rob us of the peace that we deserve. It can make us feel insecure and incapable, if we let it, however once you learn to control that negative chatter that creeps in now and again, you will achieve all that you deserve.

My advice to you, when nothing seems to be going your way, persist… http://www.successfocus.co.za

Now that you know how awesome you are

Life Coaches Johannesburg
Johannesburg based Life Coach

Of all the species in the world you were born a human being. According to science and religion, this is the highest known species yet. Now that you know how awesome you are, what are you going to do about it?

How often do we just let life happen to us, without any idea of where we would like to end up. Knowing that you are the highest species on earth shouldn’t you now be alive to the fact that your life and time is worth so much more. Unlike in the past when men were laughed upon for having “impossible” and “unreasonable” dreams, people are now encouraged to be different.

banner-life-coaching-career-coaching-business-coaching-guidance-support-2
Life Coach Durban

Be an original they say, an original is worth more than a fake. When you live each day with passion you appreciate yourself and others more. You tend to fill your days with the things you love instead of being robbed of your precious time by insignificant issues. Life seems more colourful and full of adventure. Being grateful for each day, you are rewarded with only more to be grateful. Sharing your appreciation for life, brings with it an abundance of life, friends, prosperity and happiness.

Nothing is impossible and the moon seems too low for where you want to go. This passion for life is what will get you through those days when self-doubt and fear starts to creep in. Your realisation of how great you are can actually push you towards that big scary dream that you have,  Impossible is a myth, do not believe in it.Believe only in your dream, in your ability to turn it into reality and the reason why you deserve it.

The secret of Religion lies not in theory but in practice

Working for Others

Spiritual Coach JohannesburgThe secret of Religion lies not in theory but in practice. To be good and do good that is the whole of religion.” By Swami Vivekananda. Swami Vivekananda lay down the path for Hinduism in the West at the First Parliament of Religions in Chicago in 1893. He spoke not of himself or his achievements, he did not even speak of his Guru, Sri Ramakrishna Parahamsa, but he spoke of the Religion of his people.

Life Coach at PretoriaWe, the custodians of various faiths, ought to take a page out the books of these great men, who paved the way for us. The original speakers envisioned a world where all men lived in harmony albeit their differences. Every religion speaks of love and kindness as its foundation, how then can religion be blamed. Religion therefore is not to blame, but men. If it is men that have caused all the evil that exists in the world, it is men who will restore the world to its original beauty and harmony. To effect this restoration we therefore need men of faith, strength and courage to face those who have destroyed the peace in the world.

It is our duty to go wherever there is an outbreak of disease, hunger or wherever there is distress and mitigate the sufferings of the masses. We are not here to hold titles and attend conferences only. We must act, take it upon our shoulders to destroy the evils of this world.

Life Coach JohannesburgWe must feel the pain of those suffering, until we can’t bare to just watch anymore. We have to set ourselves to work, work for the good of others, to lessen the suffering and to eradicate misconceptions that religion is to blame for all the suffering. Work in harmony, work as one, it doesn’t matter what religion you are, your suffering is my suffering and when you smile then I shall rest. Till then do not sit idle, thinking that it will all be done in time later. Nothing will be done, unless you get up and take action.

“They alone live who live for others, the rest are more dead than alive.”
