What Can We Learn From Buddy?

By Sukh Singh, Associate Partner & Mentorship Coach, Lighthouse International

This is a hilarious video and a firm favourite here amongst the Lighthouse team 🙂 but there are also some quite powerful lessons we can take from Buddy The Elf…

1. How Can You Get Excited About Your Life?

What are you most excited about right now, or what could you be excited about? Is it making your own breakthrough personally, professionally, financially? While it may feel like it’s a million miles away, what would it feel like to actually break through and change your current situation? Give yourself just 2 minutes to entertain that amazing possibility and imagine it. If you don’t see it in your imagination (in other words – if you don’t believe it) you will struggle to make it happen no matter how hard you try. Run towards it in your mind’s eye with the same anticipation and joy that Buddy has.

2. Get to Know Those Closest to You

What do you want those closest to you to achieve? What do you see them doing in the coming year? What would fill you with a sense of pride, gratitude and enthusiasm? Maybe you’d love to see your partner, parent or child achieve a certain goal. Something that I’ve found to really help me feel more alive, passionate and dedicated to my own goals is learning about my friend’s and family’s goals – and then asking myself – ok, how can I play a part in helping them achieve that? Small or large, you can play a very meaningful role in someone else’s life.

Live with more passion and purpose in 2015…
