Everything we do in life seems to be tied up with money. Now don't get me wrong. I think money is a wonderful thing and everyone should have loads ... it's the natural flow of life ... super abundance ... life thriving and pulsing in every way!
But the culture of money, the thoughts, beliefs and emotions tied up with money are way out of bounds these days The search for personal wealth, the desire to make millions, seems to be compelling loads of people's attention. What if the search for personal wealth is the wrong end of the stick? What if slick marketing, better sales techniques and focused affirmations are not the keys to abundant living, working and playing?
Life is naturally abundant. Look at wild forests left to flourish or waterfalls sparkling over magnificent mountain drops. Ok, don't think I'm pointing you here to visualizing nature or Meditating on wildness. Nope! I'm suggesting that orienting to Life ... sourcing a natural, wild abundance for ALL ... is a movement that carries its own flow, its own brilliance and its own wondrous abundance.

…the system of elected parliaments is based on propaganda to win votes. It is a demagogic system in the real sense of the word. Votes can be bought and falsified. Poor people are unable to compete in the election campaigns, and the result is that only the rich get elected.

At a news conference in Tripoli on 7 March, former Libyan Foreign Minister Moussa Koussa accused the Western powers of trying to split his country by supporting separatist rebel forces: “It’s clear they are getting in touch with the defected people of eastern Libya. It’s clear there is a conspiracy to divide Libya. The English are yearning for the colonial era of the past as the first nations who started getting in touch with the secessionists were the English, as well as the French and the Americans.”
Have you ever worked for a kind leader? What was it like? Do you practice kind leadership? I train leaders and I’ve observed many types of leadership styles and their effects on workplaces. Leaders frequently fall into two broad categories: Those who think they have to control their employees and those who think they have to be their best friend. Each approach generates predictable results.
Leaders who feel a need to control employees thrive on giving orders and getting a lot of tasks done but their employes are rarely happy. The misconception controlling leaders operate under is that you can’t get results unless you’re very demanding and on top of everyone all the time. On the other side of the spectrum are the leaders who want to be friends an who often run a chaotic, drama-permeated organizations which ironically, also leave most employees unhappy. The belief they adhere to is that you have to be liked to run an organization.
Resonant Networks is pleased to have a new contributor to the community voice – Alan Wilson from the UK. Alan developed and pioneered a unique approach to changing family relationships, and founded the U.K. charity Every Family Matters. You can visit his website at: http://parentchildrelationships.co.uk
He now wants to bring the proven benefits of his radical approach to a wider audience of parents who want the best for their child and are ready to look holistically at what they can do to improve their child’s performance, social outlook and life chances.
If you’d like to know more about Alan You can read about his own experiences here.
Parent Child Relationships are tricky to understand, and gradual changes in your relationship with your child can go unnoticed. Children’s behaviour and attitudes can make parents feel remote and unheard, at a loss to understand their child’s performance at school, their child’s lack of attention, self-care or respect for others.
Desperate to provide the best life chances for their child, parents are often advised to focus on the child but the harder the parent tries to help, the harder the child pushes back. As their child grows, a happy family life becomes a more distant memory.
For years we believed them, the scientists, the engineers, the politicians, that nuclear path was ‘safe’. What we believed behind this was that the clever people on the planet had a clue, a plan, that when things went south, they could maintain our ‘safety’. How wrong we were.
The earthquake and tsunami that ravaged parts of Japan in March this year were enough to shock even the most complacent of us out of our hypnotic trance. Until then, many of us believed that , at least in our ‘developed’ nations, if something as shocking and as unexpected as the March event happened to our nuclear power plants, that our top engineers, our best scientists would have the cleverness the resources and the plans to deal with it all.
What is this new thought?
- A direct impulse to change – divinely/source inspired - that emerges from you!
- A single or group of thoughts emerging from your heart concerns that bring you to see a bigger picture, a path, a solution to a current challenge or belief.
With it comes an energy that moves and directs you forward to feel good, to reach for your highest goal, to take action in a way that seems so natural and easy, that your mind agrees it makes SENSE to do. And you do.
Perhaps you've worked for someone who inspired you to do everything but succeed. Some leaders have a special knack for creating hostile workplaces full of uninspired and miserable employees just waiting for the day to end. Why does this happen? One of the major reasons is that many people in leadership positions mean well but have not yet figured out what it takes to create vibrant and productive organizations where people are treated well. So they keep making the same mistakes over and over, hoping that someday they'll get different results. Here are ten of the major leadership mistakes that are happening in workplaces worldwide as we speak.
1. Not allowing employees to think for themselves and make decisions autonomously.
2. Not being able to let go of the need to control people.
3. Working out personal problems on one's employees.
4. Being completely disorganized and having no semblance of a plan.
5. Creating chaos and consternation by always being in crisis mode.
6. Not setting a positive example of how to behave properly in the workplace.
7. Assigning duties constantly and randomly with no clear expectations.
8. Not listening and talking too much.
