How is ‘Pleasing Others’ working out for you?

How is ‘Pleasing Others’ working out for you?

It is like being on a City Circle Tram – you are along for the ride, observing people as they get on, take a seat, ride with you for a while, then they get off. You may offer them a seat so they are comfortable, you may even chat for a while and discuss dreams.
You are pleasing others if you are not getting out of this circle. You are not achieving anything for yourself except that you remain ‘safe’ and ‘comfortable’. There is no growth – you are not being ‘truly seen’ for the value you have to share.
Sure, by all means tell yourself that you are contributing – to WHAT are you contributing so that YOU can grow ?
The moment you can step away from that Cycle you have been on and stand tall to say “I am not here to please – I am here to give value, to give my worth and to give you what you need”, this is when you give yourself permission to receive a Return On your Investment.
Invest in Yourself – Be the person you want to be, Do what it takes to succeed, Give others what they need to thrive, Have a life of true fulfilment.
This is where you will discover your Ultimate Self – my 4 Step training takes you through this.
I wonder when you will reach life’s fulfilment which you TRULY deserve.
Comment below your life’s goal and when you want to achieve it.

Still Sitting On The Fence ?

Still Sitting On The Fence ?

Many coaches repeat the same phrase – “Don’t wait for all your ducks to line up”.
That’s because it is true. If you want to claim something for yourself in life, do it. The first attempt will not be perfect, it never will be because YOU are your GREATEST critic !
I am telling you now, as a coach – “Be mindful how long you sit on the fence, because it may very well break from underneath you”. Then what?
Is it a matter of having the right people around you? Most definitely.
Is it a matter of facing your challenges in small chunks? Of course.
Is it worth investing in yourself so that self-doubt is not an issue? Certainly is.
Now that we agree on that, what is keeping you? Don’t give the excuses that “now is not the right time”, give reasons why “it is EXACTLY the right time” !
Explore how you can handle this AND commit to taking the first step.
If you want to have that certain someone who will be your champion and your challenger, we could be the right fit – because that is EXACTLY what I needed to get where I am today.
Have you dropped your OARs?

Have you dropped your OARs?

It’s Not Whether You Get Knocked Down, It’s Whether You Get Up.” – Vince Lombardi
How often do you find yourself blaming things (or people) around you when it does not go to plan?
I wonder how much it matters, that your plan does not go ahead as you had initially thought.
When we blame the external things, it is not Ownership, Accountability nor Responsibility we are showing to our children, to our family, to our friends.
For what purpose is this done? The time that is spent on accusations, being fearful, living in despair, and worrying about what MIGHT be.
There is always a solution to the problem, there is always room for growth from the fear that is felt, and there is always room to evaluate what may work better next time.
Say goodbye to Blame, Excuses and Denial – there is no room for these if you choose to get back up and take the world head on.
YOU are worth giving it another go – YOU deserve another opportunity – YOU can give yourself permission to learn and grow.
Take the O.A.R.s and steer your way to success – You have got this !
P.S. If your life is out of control, you feel lost and alone, and you want direction to LIVE MORE of your life, drop me a line here.
Acknowledge Your Energy Within

Acknowledge Your Energy Within

Still standing – no matter what life challenges you with, you weather it in true form like Stonehenge, standing tall and strong. You have inner strength to call upon when needed, strength which will enable you to take on challenges through life. It is time to acknowledge all that is YOU.
You are wanting to feel strong and to have the determination in all that you do, to refuse nonsense from others. You are wanting confidence, greater self-esteem and the skills to weather whatever storm presents itself.
It is time to realise the energy you have within – all that you have now which can bring to life all you desire.
As one uses the pedal on that finely tuned piano, to bring depth to each note, to create new sounds which give meaning to the story being told. You desire that same Energy in your Soul.
So what is this ‘ENERGY’ that I speak of?

Sometimes the Road is Hard to Travel

Sometimes the Road is Hard to Travel

You may feel like you are falling, without a safety net. You may know you need saving, yet who will save you?
When times get hard and we feel our heart racing, our shoulders are tense with the burden we carry, our mornings turn into nights, all that we see is that which we do not have, that which is denied to us.
Our focus is on what is lacking, what is not present in our lives. We exclude that which is good, that IS around us, that which is WITHIN us. The strength that lies within us is not so clear.
Feel this in your body, deeper, so that you can pinpoint where this feeling is. Notice how your body is.
You are worthy of saving – reach out and take that first step – YOU are loved and YOU can be the one who stops this cycle – YOU are worth saving.
Take that step to see the Sunrise, and its rays will shine brightly on you.
