Thoughts become things

Thoughts become things. Everything begins with a thought. Look around at the environment you are in right now. Literally everything you can see and are using, started life as a thought in somebody’s mind. We have thousands of thoughts every day. Our predominant thoughts go on to create our feelings, our emotions.

Feelings drive your mood. A feeling, an emotion, can only last around 15 to 30 seconds before it needs to be “stoked up” again, in other words, we have to have the same or similar thoughts which created the feeling in the first place to keep that same feeling alive. If you change your predominant thoughts you will change your feelings.

Your feelings are your responsibility. No-one can make you feel a specific way. It is down to you and your thoughts.  

Feelings lead to actions. If your feelings are less than positive then there is no doubt you will have similar actions. Perhaps half-hearted attempts to do something; to finish or start a project or piece of work. You may end up being inactive; or with a ‘cannot be bothered’ approach or even worse. 

Positive feelings lead to positive actions.

Finishing something you started a while back; creating or learning something new; developing your team or your business. Whatever your actions are, remember they are preceded by your feelings.  

The actions you consistently take, create the results you get, which can be either positive or negative. If you are getting results which you do not desire, the ‘wrong ‘results in your life, then you must cycle all the way back to the beginning – to your thoughts – and change the predominant ones.

I am Sheila Holt, founder of Sapphire Lending, a finance business which is unique in the financial sector as it specialises in building lifelong relationships, trust, and communication. A long time ago I recognised that I am both an outlier and a disruptor. This means that the standard career path has never suited me. Family members guided me along the academic route with the aim of entering a secure profession. After quite a few years of trying, and failing, to fit in to a corporate role, I made a break for freedom. I left my job without any idea of what I was going to do next. Attending a neuro-linguistic programming course in Hawaii reopened my mind to entrepreneurship. It gave me a completely different direction and purpose in life. From a young age I have been fascinated by how people think and mentally programme themselves. I developed a coaching practice to help entrepreneurs achieve clarity, focus and ultimately, success. During this time, I was also investing in property and learned that the property industry needs money to flow. This was the first step in my entrepreneur journey. As a result of the financial crash in 2007 I re-mortgaged some of my portfolio and found myself in the fortunate position of suddenly having a substantial sum of money in my bank account. I loaned a portion of that money to a property developer, who in return paid me monthly interest. The drive to make my capital work hard was the impetus. Almost three years later I had a chance meeting with an entrepreneur whom I respect, and we discussed what I was doing. He suggested I could help others earn a good rate of interest with their money. It was at the time when alternative lending was starting to develop and a brand-new financial sector was emerging, which I was becoming part of. What began as a hobby became my business. Sapphire Lending was born. Typically, I have a lightness and brightness of character and together with my high energy, drive and passion I aim to take the serious, and often overcomplicated, business of finance and turn it into something that flows with simplicity, ease and clarity. I revel in being an entrepreneur and see it as one of the greatest personal development journeys I have ever been on.
