Christmas Special: The Top Three ‘Possums’ Posts For 2011

I have been overwhelmed by the positive response and support from around the world since launching this blog 7 months ago. Thank you.

More than 3,000 subscribers per week now receive ‘Wrestling Possums, either through subscription to the weekly post, via twitter (@chrisjohnsavage) or via the Possums Facebook page.

Here are three posts that stirred the most response this year. All three are really about us as people- how we can cope with, manage and handle better the pressures we’re under. Perhaps you read them and remember them. If so, read them again for a Christmas reminder.

Have a safe Christmas break and make 2012 one of your best years ever!

The secret to achieving your goals every time

‘Success is steady progress towards one’s personal goals’- well, that’s what my fortune cookie from The Peacock Gardens told me last night.

Achieving goals is a daunting journey littered with setbacks. Yet watching our 8 year old son learn to play rugby has reminded me of the secret to reaching goals. Simply put, he refused to tackle. No matter how much I yelled, begged, bribed, cajoled- he could not bring himself to do a tackle. Until someone whispered the secret in my ear.

It’s the secret that has helped me to dust myself off when I’ve failed, and has kept me moving forward. And it’s a secret that works whether you’re 8, or 50.
