I am a Woman

I am a Woman

by Paula Quinsee  In today’s modern world, what exactly does it mean to be a woman?    Our role has evolved so much that no longer can there be a standard description for us other than perhaps that of: human being and of female gender. On a daily basis, we juggle many roles to give ourselves (and society) a sense of purpose and identity – wife, lover, mother, sister, girlfriend, niece, cousin, career-woman the list is endless. This silent juggling of hats finds us being so ‘busy’ 24/7 leaving us feeling frazzled and out of touch with our own true...

When you need to pick yourself up

When you need to pick yourself up

After every down there can only be an up. Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan. You have this idea, about something that you want to do or achieve, and you put all your focus, effort and energy into it, and then boom! It backfires. Leaving you with waves of thoughts of ‘what if’s’ and an aftermath of emotions to deal with. This happened to me recently. The plan didn’t go according to plan, which left me with a “now what?” situation. I didn’t think it wouldn’t go according to plan, in fact I thought it was...

Climbing the Mountain to Our Own Greatness

By Paula Quinsee   We all have a dream, a hope, a wish to achieve and excel at something in our lives. But many of us seldom realise our dreams due to several factors such as our mindset, our attitude and our self-limiting beliefs. However the only way we grow and evolve is to step out of our comfort zones and stretch ourselves into new areas we have not been in before. Not only does this open up our creativity, it also builds our resilience and ability to be flexible with change as change is the only constant...

What have you done?

What have you done?

Learning to say No.  How many times have you said yes or committed to something and later regretted it?  And then find yourself looking for every excuse in the book to get out of said commitment....  We dread it as D day draws nearer where we are meant to be at the event or engagement we've committed to or to deliver on a task we said we would do. We find ourselves leaving things to the absolute last minute, trying to avoid it in every way possible ending up feeling stressed or running around like a headless chicken.  Why...

Why people don’t achieve their goals

Why people don’t achieve their goals

Lots of us have goals we want to achieve in life but very few end up actually achieving them. Why you ask? Well it’s because we get too caught up in the end result and what it takes to get there rather than the journey it takes to get there. Often we feel overwhelmed by the task at hand that we tend to procrastinate or give up too soon because it seems too hard or near impossible to achieve. Firstly we need to define our goalLet's use an example:Mary recently had a baby and wants to lose her...

Are you having a relationship at work?

Are you having a relationship at work?

Considering we spend approximately 8 hours a day in our working environment, it’s not surprising that extra marital affairs take place there. However that is a topic for another day, today we are talking about working relationships. Working relationships you ask? Why would I want to have a relationship with my work colleagues when I have my own friends and family? Yes that is true. However our whole life revolves around relationships and connection. We were born to be in relationships and to have a connection with others. We are after all social creatures by nature. We are conceived...

What Leadership Positioning means to us as business owners

What Leadership Positioning means to us as business owners

Leadership positioning is my most favourite topic. Because of this, I have left it for the second last topic of LionSpace, much like I leave favourite foods until last so I can really savour them. The reason I favour this topic so much is because I believe that the understanding of leadership positoning is fundamental to sound business-building.   Previous discussions around leadership in my EnQ articles and topics have talked about who we are as leaders and what we need to be; here is a quick summary of my thoughts from my own experiences:...

How do I know when to pack it in?

How do I know when to pack it in?

I often get asked this question at my presentations and it’s a good question, but I can never do the answer justice in 2 minutes. So I am going to write my LionSpace Topic 8 business article around my ideas here because they relate closely to sytems and stakeholders. Whenever someone asks me this question in a presentation, someone else invariably mumbles, “When the money runs out”, which seems an obvious answer but I don’t agree. I don’t think the commitment needed to “keep going” is linked to money or to our love of...
