Are you excited to face the challenges that the day could bring or do you wish you could just stay in bed and let the day drift past?
Hello and welcome to Fantastic. A place that not only provides you with the means to banish these negative thoughts but a place that will also teach you essential skills that will ensure you wake up feeling Fantastic every morning.
My name is Matt Collins and I will be regularly posting about all things Fantastic. The posts will range from personal experiences, daily doses of inspiration, heart- warming real life stories and general fun stuff that will hopefully set you on your own path to becoming Fantastic!!
However, posting on this blog is only the beginning. I can only point you in the direction to becoming Fantastic, it’s up to you to keep it going.
But, I hear you ask…what is Fantastic and how can it benefits you? What’s in it for me? Well, everything has a centre right? A beating heart that makes everything happen? At Fantastic we are no different, only we have seven…the seven Fantastic characteristics:
Each one is as important as the other and without one, you will never truly become Fantastic. Every month we will focus on a particular one, going into detail about why these characteristics are so important and how each one can be used to unlock your potential and become the person you want to be.
So, which one do we begin with? While Fantastic is about helping you improve individually, it’s also about how others see you and giving them the Fantastic experience. Whatever it is you do, you need other people around you. Nobody can do it on their own. People need support. With this in mind, we will be focussing on the characteristic “Delight” and how you can use it to make yourself, and others, feel great.
Delighting people and making them happy is a really easy way to make yourself and others feel Fantastic. It’s an important concept to understand, as delighting people and making them feel fantastic are how people forge relationships and build trust. Being likeable and personable, if used in the right way, can also help convert a bad situation into a positive lasting experience.
To truly delight somebody, communication and listening are really important skills to have. Look out for our video this month on ‘Making People Smile’ and how giving positive messages to somebody, even strangers, can make not only you feel good, but them too. I will also be giving you hints and tips on communication skills to get you started so you too can begin putting smiles on even the most miserable of people!
