I know it’s still June but I wanted to get this newsletter out early to make sure you have time to sign up for free to the Worldwide Transformational Summit starting on July 8th – LESS THAN TWO WEEKS Away. Follow this link. Also in this issue my thoughts on the ramifications of the Brexit vote.
The Times They Are A' Changin'!
“Come writers and critics who prophesy with your pen
And keep your eyes wide the chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon for the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who that it's namin'
For the loser now will be later to win
For the times they are a' changin'!”
― Bob Dylan (1964)
In the wake of the UK’s decision to leave the EU, we live in a time of unparalleled economic, political and social change.
There are three responses to change.
1) You can be an Ostrich. Stick you head firmly in the sand and ignore the changes happening around you. You believe your strategies have served you well in the past. Why Change? In a changing would you must adapt or be left behind.
“In times of change learners inherit the earth;
while the learned find themselves beautifully
equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.”
― Eric Hoffer (American moral and social philosopher)
2) You can drive yourself into the swamp of despair in a BMW. I don’t mean the car – I mean Bitch, Moan and Whine. Complaining about a situation solves nothing. Personally I voted to the UK to remain in the EU. I believe in democracy and I was on the losing side. I am not going to complain about the outcome. The only course of action is to accept what has happened and move on.
“There are people who make things happen,
there are people who watch things happen,
and there are people who wonder what happened.
To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.”
― Jim Lovell (former NASA astronaut)
3) The third course of action is to analyse the situation, identify new opportunities and move quickly to make the most of them while your competitors are in denial or despair. You need a positive attitude and the flexibility to adapt.
What do Giant Panda’s eat? Bamboo and nothing else. What do urban foxes eat? Pretty much anything that humans discard. When threatened with habitat loss pandas are becoming endangered in the wild whist foxes are prospering.
The Law of Requisite Variety states that, “The individual with the highest amount of flexibility of behaviour will have the most influence on the system. That basically means that the more choices you have, the more freedom you will feel, and the better a quality of life you can have.”
Keep an open mind and invest in alternative strategies.
“When the student is ready the teacher will appear.”

I advocate Mind Mapping as a tremendous tool for analysing a situation. You can learn the fundamental principles of Mind Mapping form a free interview I have given as part of the Worldwide Transformational Summit to be webcast on Day 4 – Monday July 11th.

Mind Mapping is only one of 19 strategies covered by the event. I am sure you will get many valuable ideas that will help you tackle the challenges ahead whether that be in relationships, health, money, depression, anxiety, starting a business, building your self image, self worth, keys to happiness, etc....
