Change is daunting for most people and most businesses. It means moving away from something you are really comfortable with and heading in a new direction that has not been tried or tested and has no guarantee of success. Just because it has been successful for other companies does not mean it will work for you.

This poem by David Whyte captures a spirit of change that is so inspiring, strong and powerful and I aspire to help people find that “rose-fired compass, blossoming with direction”

But still, on the ocean, there is
no path

only the needle’s trembling dance
north

….followed
without fear,

though the dance now is fear
and calmness
in one movement
seeing

as you look
not only the angry sea
of what you
have denied

but
here,
near at hand
in the centre
of your body,

the rose-fire
of the compass
blossoming
with direction.

- David Whyte, bestselling author of  ”The Heart Aroused”

  1. thank-you for posting this. it’s so true – the feeling of fear mixed with calmness as you know you’re going through an invisible terror barrier. We imagine it’s so easy and different for everyone else, but we all have to face the same risks – it’s how you go about doing that that counts, which is where most of us would really benefit from some help. And once you’re through it, you’ll wonder what all the fuss was about…

  2. Some genuinely nice stuff on this internet
