Gatherings

Gatherings and, simultaneously, loneliness are the conditions of a writer’s life. ~ Jerzy Kosinski. Technology has certainly come to our aid during the current times of lock-down difficulties. As gatherings have now been outlawed, meetings have become very much a digital affair. Personal contact plays a big part in our…

Emotion

Emotion – Human behaviour flows from three main sources: desire, emotion and knowledge. ~ Plato. Fear is probably the deepest emotion that can lead people to do all sorts of things they wouldn’t normally aspire to. We’re all a mixture of our emotions and it rules everything we do. Emotional…

Alternative

Alternative – Some people don’t like change, but you need to embrace it if the alternative is disaster. ~ Elon Musk. We’ve certainly seen some alternative events here at Blissland over the years. The numbers of people that are interested in alternative ways of thinking or living may be small.…

Being Happy

Being Happy – The only thing that will make you happy is being happy with who you are, and not who people think you are. ~ Goldie Hawn. Last week’s Being Happy at Work event had us all buzzing as the interactive hour was a great success. Those people who…

Caring

Caring – Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community. ~ Anthony J. D’Angelo. Valentine’s Day proves the need for caring through sharing gifts with our nearest and dearest. In the days preceding it, we were surprised by the lack of enthusiasm for it by single…

Perception

Perception – The difference between average people and achieving people is their perception of and response to failure. ~ John C. Maxwell. We all see things differently. The variation can be very slight, but no two people can see exactly the same image at the same time. People’s perception of…

Initiative

Employers and business leaders need people who can think for themselves – who can take initiative and be the solution to problems. ~ Stephen Covey. Taking the initiative to get jobs done sets the very employable people from the average. When anyone has to be told every detail of what…

Events

Events – We cannot make events. Our business is wisely to improve them. ~ Samuel Adams. Essentially Blissland is an events centre. Those who have visited us know the power of the land and the energy of the views etc. However, we are still basically a place to hold events.…
