The job of our unconscious mind is to keep us safe and protected - to keep us out of the way of potentially life threatening situations. Fear in these situations is obviously very useful, but the trouble is that our minds often connect up what should actually be neutral situations to something it perceives is harmful to us.

Are You Addicted to Being Busy?

I used to be addicted to busyness. I could not sit still for longer than five minutes without feeling the urgent need to be doing something productive. There was always something drawing my attention for me to work on. I was unaware that I had made busyness the purpose of my life. In all of my busyness I forgot to look after myself.

I've combined my love for dogs with my knowledge of dog training. It's so much fun when my four-legged friends do what I want and not vice versa. At the same time, my dogs should be happy, because if my dogs aren't happy, neither am I.

n an R.E lesson the subject conveniently turned to the afterlife, and, without needing any cue, Freddy got up and spoke wonderfully in front of the whole class about Jade and most poignantly about how he sees her as a beautiful butterfly. Heart melting stuff and Ms H took the golden opportunity to elaborate and congratulate Freddy on such a brave show of emotion. Realising she was beneath the barrier, something wonderful happened between teacher and pupil and an understanding was made. This was confirmed when a Loom-band bracelet appeared anonymously on her desk with a note proclaiming her to be the best teacher in the world.

An Authentic Life Without Fear

It's easier to describe the presence of something than the absence of something but the feeling I had really was an absence; I noticed fear wasn't there. I listened for it, I tried to feel it, I waited for a fleeting thought to come and it simply didn't appear. It was the first time in years I was able to enjoy the moment without those nagging doubts in my head.

Excuses. We all make them. Monthly. Weekly. Daily. Even hourly. To others, but mostly to ourselves. And, it's likely that these excuses that you come up with, are holding you back from creating the success that you want.

What do you think when you hear the term mid-life crisis? A quick survey amongst a few of my friends and colleagues brought up, fast cars, affairs with 22 year olds, crisis and difficulties - quite a negative opinion.

Do you ever find yourself struggling to determine what your passions are? Do you ever wonder if you actually have any passions at all? I know how you feel! A year and a half ago my response to the question 'what are your passions?' was a shoulder shrug and a moment of intense panic.

I am not a trained dog coach. I approach dogs from a soul-searching and creative angle. In overcoming my dog phobia by painting their portraits, I came to realize how sensitive they were. Having lived with several dogs and taken care of them at the Friends of Animals rescue center in Athens, I've learned how to live in the present.

It may never be possible to iron out every scoundrel with wayward principles, but using values as the basis for learning and development could ultimately count for much more than a few thousand quid on swindled expenses.

"Too much research, not enough action". Yet another trend is isolation and turning your career change into a never-ending project as opposed to a reality. However, opportunities (especially those related to career change and entrepreneurship) most often come attached to people.

Why do we give up? Because we think that if something has not yet happened by our time scale then it is not going to happen. We assume that when something is not yet alright it is never going to be.

I am a great believer that these are no coincidences but synchronicities. Two events that come together for a purpose. They may be to give us a message or they may be that a situation happens that moves your life in a new direction.

Have you made some resolutions? How many do you think you will keep? Not many? I have a theory about that. Most resolutions are about changing a habit, stopping or starting something. Trouble is that if we really wanted to do that then we probably already would be doing it.
