What is the purpose and meaning of life?

Often in life we meet people who  lack motivation,  feel  ‘fed up’ with life, are depressed or troubled.It may be one of our family or loved ones, or one of our friends or colleagues.  We can feel so helpless and unsure how we can help them.At times the person who is fed up with life may even be ourselves.We can find ourselves asking :“What is it all about, this thing called life?”“What is the meaning of life?”“What is the purpose of it Read more…

It’s time to step up and create the life and success you want.

 “The greatest limitations you will ever face will be those you place on yourself.” Denis WaitleyI want you right here, right now, to put aside the idea that you may not be healthy enough, wealthy enough, pretty enough, smart enough, handsome or intelligent enough to create the changes you want in your life. I want you to set aside the idea that happiness and success is something for ‘other people’ and won’t happen for you.You have Read more…

Are you living the life you want? Or are you getting in your own way?

If you are not getting the high level of results you want in your personal or professional  life, it can be hard, especially if you badly want success.So what are you doing wrong?  Does it come down to the strategy you are using?  My guess is, you are getting in your own way….Now I know that sounds quite blunt – but I believe in saying it how it is. I am not a coach who delivers a Read more…

What Has Happened In Your Past Doesn’t Dictate What You Can Achieve Now or In Your Future

“The future depends on what we do in the present.” Mahatma Ghandi. When I first start to work with new coaching clients we spend time  challenging and exploring (and smashing through!) any limiting beliefs that are held by them.Many of those limiting beliefs often stem from incidents and experiences that have happened many years ago in their past.I want to reassure you that whatever has happened in your past (however horrendous, painful, challenging or embarrassing your situation may have been at Read more…

Life, death, legacies and hyphens. Make your life count!

  “It’s only when we truly understand that we have a limited time on earth- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up- that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it were the only one we had.” (Elisabeth Kubler-Ross). Recently we heard  of the deaths of Victoria Wood at the age of only 62, and Prince at the age of 57. Their legacy and music will Read more…

What does a Life Coach, Success & Mindset Coach, NLP Master Practitoner and Mentor do? An Explanation for You…

After being asked our name, one of the first questions we  are often  asked when we meet someone new is ‘What do you do?’  And often people form a judgment of us dependant on how we respond. I don’t believe we should be defined by what we do however. Each and every one of us is a  unique individual and a valuable ‘bundle of resources’.  We are all a unique mixture of skills, passions and talents, knowledge and experience, personality traits,  likes Read more…

Let go of guilt and regrets now. An exercise to spring clean your mind.

It’s officially Spring as I am writing this, the leaves are budding on the trees, and it’s a time of new growth all around us. I so love this time of year when everything is so fresh and new. As humans I believe we can learn a lot from mother nature and what is happening in the seasons:Trees shedding leaves in winter always reminds me how important it is to let go of things which no longer serve us Read more…

It’s time to silence your programmed ways of thinking…

  “Every day you must unlearn the ways that hold you back. You must rid yourself of negativity, so you can learn to fly…” (Leon Brown) As babies we are all born with an innate default setting. I believe that default setting is one of love and self love, joy and inner peace and ‘being at one with who we are’. As babies we never question our own ability. We are comfortable in our own Read more…

Making A Decision is Your Starting Place to Achieving the Life You Want

  On the day when everything began to change for me in my life, it began with a decision. I had to decide that I was sick of being sick. I had to decide that I was sick of financial worries and of being restricted and consumed by a life of unhappiness and pain. I had to scream that I would not and could not live like that any longer. My entire being revolted against that Read more…

‘Want’ what you want in life – and want it badly! Visualisation is Key.

  Being fired with a hunger and desire for what you truly want in life is important.   Without a burning desire to turn what you want into reality, you will lack motivation to take action and are highly unlikely to succeed. You may have clarity on what you want and  have big  dreams, goals and visions – but I’ll be honest with you, it will all be wasted. You may not even get off the starting blocks Read more…
