Life Principles – Principle Interactions

What happens when principles interact?

Over the last few weeks, I’ve shared with you the principles that I try and live my life. I’ve found the “Life Principles” of Truth, Trust and Learning to be incredibly powerful but even more so the interactions between them.

In this video I explore what it means when each of the principles interact with each other. For example, what happens when truth and trust are expressed towards others? How about truth and learning or trust and learning?

Rather than be blown by the winds of circumstance, what happens to your relationships and your own character when you begin to live your life through a firm set of principles. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to live a more fulfilled life, then I would encourage you to watch this next installment in my “Life Principles” series.

Life Principles – Trust

Trust is the basis of every relationship.

Trust is the second Life Principle that forms the bedrock of my own life. All relationships are built upon a basis of the truth (from the previous week’s video) and trust. In fact, you could also say that society is built upon an unspoken contract of trust.

When I look at the world today one of the things that dismays me the most is the assault upon the bonds of trust between us. COVID-19 has brought about an air of suspicion where people are fighting for the “I” rather than the “we”. You can witness this behavior at supermarkets as shelves are emptied in a frenzied zeal to protect “me”.

What makes a person trustworthy and how can we become more trustworthy ourselves? In this video I outline the characteristics of trustworthy people and what I personally look for in someone that is trustworthy.

I hope you are enjoying this Life Principle series. Have a great weekend.

Saturday Musings - Life Principles, truth

Life principle 1, the truth

Being a seeker of the truth is one of the most transformative attitudes that a person can have in their life. Many years ago, I determined that being truthful would be one of the foundations for my own life.

The result of this journey has been a great relationship with my wife, kids and friends all over the world. I have been blessed beyond measure and I wonder what people that I will develop strong bonds with into the future.

I find that too many people are very loose with the truth and then wonder why their lives end up in a mess. In this “Life Principles” video I encourage others to join me in also becoming seekers of the truth. It’s a life principle that has stood the test of time and has brough much joy to those that follow it.

Have a great weekend.

My Life Principles

The three principles that I have built my life upon.

When I was twenty something, I went on a quest to try and find a series of life principles that would carry me through the rest of my life. I needed the principles to be timeless, practical and all encompassing.

In this video I relate the three principles that I have endeavored to rigorously apply to my life. I’ve found them to be liberating, powerful and a beacon for me to follow in every circumstance that I have found myself in.

I hope you enjoy what I share and find some merit in applying these principles to your own life. If you’ve found the video thought provoking then don’t forget to leave a comment, like or subscribe.

Personal Musings - Getting to the Facts

Learning to face the facts...even if it's difficult.

Facts can be scary things, especially when you don’t want to know about them. One of the reasons why things are called facts is because they are unequivocally true and yet, so many people take an ostrich approach to life by burying their head in the sand to escape them. The question I would ask is, “Are you a seeker of the truth or a large bird?”

A couple of years ago I found myself in a meeting planning for a leadership conference and I asked the question, “What’s going wrong with the organisation?” Several weeks later one of the leaders pulled me aside and expressed that she was really offended by the question. I must admit that I was a little perplexed by this response.

After listening to their concerns I explained that if you wanted to run a training session for the leaders of the organisation you needed to know the facts so the training could target the issues. I then shared with them that a leader should never be afraid to expose the facts of any situation.

One of the reasons why many organisations fail is due to the leadership punishing those people that are seekers of the truth. It doesn’t take very long before these people are isolated, ostracized and eventually take their talents elsewhere.

If you’re in a leadership position in an organisation then people that seek to find the facts, however unpleasant they may be, are like gold. What you will also discover is these individuals will often put their own position and career on the line for the sake of uncovering the truth of a situation.
