Rewilding – restoring and protecting Mother Nature

Rewilding Michael-ThornleyRewilding – restoring and protecting Mother Nature

‘Rewilding is large-scale conservation aimed at restoring and protecting natural processes and core wilderness areas, providing connectivity between such areas, and protecting or reintroducing apex predators and keystone species.”

Rewilding is all about…

Habitats expanding instead of shrinking

Origin

” The word rewilding was coined by conservationist and activist Dave Foreman, one of the founders of the group Earth First! who went on to help establish both the Wildlands Project (now the Wildlands Network) and the Rewilding Institute.

The term first occurred in print in 1990 and was refined by conservation biologists Michael Soulé and Reed Noss in a paper published in 1998.  According to Soulé and Noss, rewilding is a conservation method based on “cores, corridors, and carnivores.”[ The concepts of cores, corridors, and carnivores were developed further in 1999. Dave Foreman subsequently wrote the first full-length exegesis of rewilding as a conservation strategy” – Wikipedia.

Rewilding Europe

Rewilding Europe is closest in scale and ambition to the Buffalo Commons in North America, and aims to:

  1. Rewild 1 million hectares of land in Europe by 2020, creating 10 magnificent wildlife and wilderness areas which may serve as inspirational showcases all across Europe.
  2. Help turn the problems caused by the on-going land abandonment into opportunities for man and nature alike, providing a viable business case for wild nature in Europe.
  3. Launch a new conservation vision for Europe, with wild nature and natural processes as key elements, where rewilding is applicable to any type of landscape or level of protection.

Their active sites are:

  • Western Iberia
  • Eastern Carpathians
  • Danube Delta
  • Southern Carpathians
  • Velebit

Rewilding is restoring the balance to Mother Earth.  The planet was not created simply for the indulgences of the human race, it is the home for all living things to live in ‘balance’, one which has been evolving over millennia.

We are responsible for tipping the scales to destruction, including our own demise if we continue on this downward spiral. However, we still have time albeit at the eleventh hour to right some of the wrongs and once again live in harmony with all that Mother Nature nurtures.

There’s a big difference between making money and accumulating wealth. Said in another way: It’s not what you make, it’s what you keep. And what you do with the money you keep—how you treat it and how much you respect it—makes a world of difference.

Don’t believe it? Consider that nearly 70 percent of lottery winners go broke within seven years, according to the book “Money for Nothing: One Man’s Journey Through the Dark Side of Lottery Millions.”

As an example, a person wins a lottery and blows the winnings on opportunistic friends and family, half-baked investment opportunities and extravagant living. While another, like Elon Musk, sells a business for a nice profit, reinvests the bulk of the proceeds in a new business and, over time, becomes a billionaire.

The same applies to people who earn high salaries. Some retire early and sail the world; others struggle to keep the toys they’ve acquired while stretching to make ends meet. Wealth accumulation isn’t so much about making money; it’s about the attitudes and behaviors people indulge in while acquiring it, as well as the decisions they make when managing it.’

Are You Proud Of What You Did Today?

Are You Proud Of What You Did Today?

Whenever you work on a computer and exit out of your work you always get the same question.

“Do you want to save the changes you made?”

And when it comes to papers or reports it’s an easy choice. You click yes.

But think about this.

If right before you went to bed at the end of the day a banner popped up in front of you and asked “do you want to save the changes you made today?” would you?

Make no mistake. When it comes to making your dreams come true you either get closer or further away every day.

So tonight when you go to bed will you want to save the changes you made to your life today?

Don’t think too hard about it. Because now you have a chance to make the answer an automatic hell yes.

If you found a job that allowed you to work from you computer and make thousands every week doing it you’d save those changes right?

If you found a simple and streamlined way to make a fortune then you’d save those changes right?

If you found a system that made people money so well that if it didn’t work for you then you’d get your money back x 10 then you’d save those changes right?

You’re going to want to save today. Because you just found all that and more.

Being a Gentleman- Chivalry is NOT dead! by Michael Thornley

Being-a-Gentleman Michael-ThornleyBeing a Gentleman- Chivalry is NOT dead! by Michael Thornley

My new book Being a Gentleman- Chivalry is NOT dead! … has just been released today on Amazon.com 

Book description:

” Has the attribute of ‘Being a Gentleman’ and thus the Art of Chivalry been lost in a modern world? What have been the catalysts that have led to an ever changing role for men?

This is the question that Australian Author Michael E Thornley raises and discusses in this guide to ‘Being a Gentleman’. He has talked to a number of men AND women in the process of trying to establish reasons as to why the act of being a Gentlemen is fading from society and he has asked them all this question “is being chivalrous in fact … dead?”

You may feel challenged by some of the suggestions which have been put forward from his research and are presented to you is this book for you to contemplate. However there have to be reasons for a change in men and we as a society must consider these reasons closely whilst at the same time decide on how we will all move forward together toreturn to common courtesies..

It is difficult for an individual to show another ‘kindness’ ‘love’ ‘respect’ when they, the individual, are not being ‘kind’ or ‘loving’ or ‘respectful’ to themselves.”

Something Inspiring!

Something_ Inspiring Michael_Thornley
Inspiration Something inspiring

I have thought long and hard about something inspiring to share with you today. Some days it flows; some days it ebbs and other days it ebbs and flows 🙂 Surely out of my interactions today something inspiring would manifest from the positive vibes that have abounded.

Certainly something ‘inspiring’ was found in all these events yet nothing stood out as a particular grand something inspiring moment more a collective of inspiration.Yet when I thought I had lost the something inspiring moment, the proverbial something ‘inspiring’ light came on. It was clear to me what the something-inspiring’ something was!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And it was quite simple and certainly inspired something in me…..the message was that you should always do something that inspires others, that is the reward and that is something inspiring in itself 😉

Commitment and Consistency

commitment
What are the two biggest challenges people face in life that prevent them from being a success?

Commitment and consistency.

Most people dabble in this…… They “commit” to something at the beginning, when it’s new and exciting, yet that “commitment” soon wears off. It’s not long before they’ve “changed their mind” or come up with some excuse or reason to “commit” to something else.

This is the downfall of many, as they continually jump from one thing to the next. On top of that, they lack any form of consistency. They don’t show up. As the saying goes, “80% of success is just showing up”, yet many people can’t even do that.

Commitment and Consistency applies to both one’s business and personal life. It is fine to investigate and conduct research into a ‘project’ but ‘start it’ ‘try it’ and ‘give it’ all you have! Indeed in many instances the ‘project’ may not work but a valuable lesson has been learnt to empower you and guide you to a better path. However if you have not totally ‘committed’ yourself to the task then how can you possibly achieve success?

A secret to success is to be humble enough to ask for help from those that are already experts in the field. Swallow your pride and be guided by a suitable mentor. Why try to re-invent the wheel when the solution is already mapped out for you. Just add your own ‘ingredients’ to enhance the recipe to success to make it your own.

‘Just do it’….NIKE

Go forth and prosper!

Get some fresh air!

colorful_fresh_air fresh

Get some fresh air! Do you ever find yourself stuck in an office all day long or perhaps locked inside your home due to work or inclement weather? Bogged down and stressed out, depressed even, unable to break out of that downward spiral of cabin fever. The stale air of your room hanging over you like a menacing fog or even a collective of odours being recycled through the office air-conditioning unit….. Well the answer is quite simple…… go outside and enjoy the fresh air!

Feel the energy returning as the sun warms your face and the breeze blows away the cobwebs. A renewed energy envelopes you ready to tackle the next task at hand. Find a balance in your day and you will be rewarded with a more productive and positive outlook and a growth in health, wealth and happiness 🙂
