Live life on your terms

Live life on your terms

This post is inspired by my dear friend, Doina Oncel (owner of this blog) and a Facebook post of hers that caught my eye. (If you aren’t following her on Facebook yet, make sure you do as she has a lot of wise and valuable things to say. You can follow her here)

 

The thought she inspired me to write about is complacency. We are often brought up a certain way, to go to school, get a job, work and live a certain life . While there is nothing wrong with living this ‘normal’ life I believe and encourage you to live life on your terms and not within someone else’s view of normal. 

 

Those of you who follow me know that I often write and speak about outrageous goals and living a life beyond mediocrity however this credo is often misunderstood. 

 

There are many who have opted for what may be considered the ‘normal’ lifestyle of working in their job or career,  spending time with family, living in the same place all their lives etc. and to those people who are extremely happy and living life on their terms, I applaud them. You don’t need to be a speaker, writer or millionaire to be living the life of your dreams. 

 

For those of you, however, who are not happy, who have settled because  ‘society’ tells them to settle, who go to work because it was the next logical step after school and who complain that they are not happy, those are the people I am speaking to in hopes that someone that needs to hear this, hears it…To those people… I encourage you to dream and live life on  your terms.

 

Earl Nightingale said it well, “ We can let circumstances rule us, or we can take charge and rule our lives from within."

 

Understand that you can ‘poke life’, as my friend Doina says. You can ‘mold it’. Understand that you truly can be, do and have anything  you want in life. You can live where you want to live, be who you want to be. Don’t let people or the norm tell you what your reality should be. 

 

Dream. Live life on your terms.

 

To your success,

 

Tereza

1. For our readers to get to know you better can you please tell us who you are, what type of business you are in and why?

I'm what you call a bonified Enviromental-Artist/Instructor and Interior Designer, respecting, re-purposing/reviving discarded items, and re-designing them into attractive and practical creations for resale.

I have a passionate love and desire with helping to save our planet, and my sanity by making things pretty and practical…one craft at a time! I introduce the environmental art concept to my clients and encourage them to also to repurpose, recycle, and respect reclaimed items. I am an ardent volunteer, while loving myself, family, friends, a good read, music, travel and dance. Toastmaster and motivational speaker.

As a youngster I always made everything. Funny true story. While I was attending middle school, I used to make doll clothing for my friends and pillows for my teachers and adults in the neighborhood.

1. For our readers to get to know you better can you please tell us who you are, what type of business you are in and why?

My name is Ainka Jess. I’m a trained broadcast journalist who has two sides of the coin meaning I have career background in journalism and communications. I’m in this line of business because I eat and breathe helping people/brands effectively tell their stories, market their products/services and engage with their communities/customers. I have a soft spot for Twitter and like to stay on the pulse of current affairs and digital/marketing trends.

2. When encouraging innovative ideas, how do you go about it?

I designed an organization’s first e-newsletter to increase employee engagement and reduce their environmental footprint. To introduce this idea to my communications team, I found best practices and e-newsletter templates that other brands were using to support my findings/research on top e-newsletters.

Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation – ARE YOU READY?

SM 3

But you are not a spammer right?  Obviously, you’re not a Nigerian prince looking for a bank account to deposit your wealth.  Probably doesn’t matter.  Coming into force on July 1, 2014, Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (CASL) is the most pervasive and onerous of any such a law in the world.  That’s right–on the planet!  The legislation will require that pretty much ALL businesses and organizations make changes.  If you do any kind of email marketing—you need to comply.  The penalties are very stiff.

CASL impacts more than just what we have all come to know as spam—unsolicited email. CASL also requires an express (opt-in) consent protocol for most any and all electronic messages sent for commercial reasons.
