10 Gifts of Christmas

By John Rahme

“Another year, Jeez that went fast.”  is what we often here. So often is the case. A time for enjoyment, reflection and looking forward.

I would like to take this opportunity to give you all a gift. A gift which I do hope helps you in some way or in a part of your life.


  1. Open someone’s door – once a day or when an opportunity arises, help someone. Just as someone helped you.
  2. Friendships – Work together, be there for each other and at times just listen.
  3. Audit yourself- take to time audit your personal life and working life, be honest with yourself.
  4. Quiet time – do not be fearful being alone in your own head. Be at peace and accepting of your thoughts. And work through them.
  5. Culture – culture starts within you. Share it.
  6. None of us are smarter than all of us – Ask, question and be prepared to listen and take on board.
  7. Your physical well being- treat your body like you would your business, run it efficiently.
  8. Permission – give yourself permission to do what you have always wanted to do. Give yourself permission to love yourself.
  9. Focus – be careful on what you focus on, as it may be a bit wide of where you want to land. Focus on the solution and the process.
  10. Be honest in your love – self-love is underrated; it is the means to every road. Find away to love you in a manner which is above all, but remain humble.


This is my gift and my wish to you.
