The Making of a Peace Maker

Originally posted on pamelamilne:
Although I blogged this 3 years ago – I think in the current climate it is worth publishing again. This is how real peace makers behave….. In the People Skills Revolution Handbook I include an interview with a CEO, who I had heard about through the grapevine, who I believed was…

Tips and tricks on writing CV’s (or Resumes) for young people who think that they ‘know it all’.

One of the most difficult things for someone entering the work force for the first time is that they have no relevant experience so they have to make the best of what experiences they have had. So I advise you to get some experience – virtually any experience that you can talk about. It could be going on an educational trip, it could be a work placement, it could be volunteering for a charity, it could be in a sports team, choir or band, it could be being part of a youth scheme in the summer, it could be going out of your way to assist people or perhaps you have been able to do some paid work already. Then you need to work out what you have learnt from the time you have spent doing these activities then work out if any of this could be relevant to a future employer. Continue reading

Mindfulness, Magic and Emotional Release

Although I have read many books on meditation and mindfulness, I have rarely read anything about experiencing emotional release. So I just want to tell you about it – just in case you experience it yourself. If you have never felt a flood of emotions or muscle release during meditation don’t worry – this is perfectly normal. If you have – I want to tell you that this is also perfectly normal although I suspect much rarer and nothing to be worried about. The way I look at it is that whilst these emotions and tensions are buried in your body they are not doing you any good so allowing them to be released in a gentle and controlled way when you are in charge can only be a healing experience.

Men (and Women) and Emotions – The Evolution of Love

I have always read the papers and stuff and seen articles about people who’ve committed suicide and I used to think “You selfish so and so. How can you do something like that?” but there’s time at the beginning where you think – you kind of know how they feel. When I look at my 3 kids, I couldn’t do that to them. I am not saying I have not sat there and thought I was going to do it but I have sat there and thought I understand and can see how you can sink into a mad place, where you just think, you know what forget this. But I have been lucky. I have had so many people around me, who have been tight around me’.

‘It Takes Two Hands To Clap’ – Dating in a Digital Age

Dates are becoming like commodities, before you actually meet, before you second or third date there is a lot of texting – you just say something wrong and you might not end up in a date anymore. For each text that you send you are being assessed. When you meet the person in person there might be things that you might not have liked about the person based on this one dimension but when you meet the person it’s multi-dimensional so there are other things that would have made up for these things that you might not have liked’.

REMOVE THE BLOCKS IN YOUR LIFE AND SUCCEED

Now all the exercise videos and New Year’s resolutions are out of the way and the diet is a long distant memory. You might feel frustrated that another year has gone past and you still haven’t changed your job, moved house, found a partner or taken the plunge back into education. If you don’t want to be sitting here the same time next having the same thoughts, you must take some action to remove some of the blocks that may stand in your way and make 2017 the year that you succeed.
