How to be inspired by recent news – #BestBootForward

We have had such an inspirational dose of recent news. I am sure like me the World Cup has captured your imagination but even more so the amazing rescue of the boys trapped in that cave.

I am opening the Best Boot Forward linky for the week and you are welcome to share any positive posts including those where you are moving towards any particular goals.

So I thought I would share some reflections or to put if more realistically some ramblings on those news stories.

Firstly, I thought about how many of us appoint ourselves Mystic Meg or Marcus the Pig saying exactly what is bound to happen in the future to us. We do this with no way of knowing what the future holds and all too often we imagine negative happenings. So we waste energy that could be better spent elsewhere. It would be so much better to take one game a time, celebrate each baby step towards our ultimate goal and be delighted if we achieve the ultimate win. If we insist on getting out the crystal ball, might I suggest we visualize good stuff.

Secondly, it strikes me that we all get ourselves in a tight corner from time to time. Often it can feel that there is no way out. We want to escape something or someone but we don’t know how to pull that off. Research is needed and sometimes we will have to rely on others and there is no weakness in doing so if we select those heroines carefully. We also need to move forwards with hope. We can choose to hope even when the situation in front of appears perilous.

So as ever with Best Boot Forward we encourage you to link up any positive posts but try to inspire you as best we can too.

If you choose to and only if you want to, perhaps reflect a little in a blog post or in your own head on the following questions.

1. How can you stop imagining the future will be rubbish?
2. Do you fancy visualizing good stuff?
3. When were you last in a sticky situation? How did you get out of it and what can you learn from that?
4. What information do you need to gain in order to move forwards positively?
5. Who are the potential heroes that can help you right now?
6. What are you hoping for?

Take heart from recent news that we can never know what will happen in the future. The apparently impossible does happen if you put on the right equipment/kit and put your #BestBootForward.

    1. How can you stop imagining the future will be rubbish? Just by living and giving things a try, enjoy the moment.
    2. Do you fancy visualizing good stuff? I do, i always look at both scenarios, both good and bad.
    3. When were you last in a sticky situation? How did you get out of it and what can you learn from that? My sticky situations are usually caused by others, I’ve learnt to tell people that if they want my help they have to be honest with me and not tell half a story.
    4. What information do you need to gain in order to move forwards positively? The truth.
    5. Who are the potential heroes that can help you right now? Dr Who
    6. What are you hoping for? Time travel
