You see it's only when you clean off the crap that you can see what's shiny and beautiful underneath. It allows you the space to think big, dig deep and realise where your skills align with your values.

Have You Ever Been Called A 'Loose Cannon'?

After reading that I was most definitely offended! Now, you may not know me, you may have met me, been on my training, tapped into a free webinar or just know me through my blogs and weekly you think I would ever put anyone in jeopardy?

Setting Yourself Up For Success!

Amy Shefik | Posted 23.09.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Amy Shefik

I was recently having a conversation with a friend where he was doing just that. It was interesting to me because I can definitely remember times where I've done it too. I've initially resisted the paths that I would end up taking, because they felt either too hard or too easy. Yes, you read that right, too easy and it would seem that I am not the only one who does this.

How To Feel Younger And Have More Fun!

Do you ever feel too old? When was the point in our lives when we became too old for stuff? It seems like a blurry memory of some point in my mid 20's when I felt like it for the first time. When you've transitioned into being a proper grown up, you're supposed to have it together, earn respect and NOT FAIL OR LOOK STUPID!

Did You Know...You Have Between 50,000 And 70,000 Thoughts Per Day...

Shahilla Barok | Posted 02.09.2016 | UK Lifestyle

It's also a phenomenal number of thoughts to be having; however, our minds are so clever that they 'filter' these thoughts so that only the important ones are actually retained by us. This is known as DDG in NLP: Deleting, distorting and generalising.

How to Supercharge Your Belief in Your Business and Yourself

The next time you find yourself struck with self-doubt its worth bearing in mind that when you doubt your power, you give power to your doubt. In every moment we have a choice to believe in ourselves or to believe in our doubts, one moves us closer to our goals and one moves us further away, which option will you choose?

Kindness Starts with Yourself

So I want more kindness in my life, where do I start? Well, counter-intuitively authentic kindness starts with being kind to yourself. Sure you can just go out and do good or volunteer but if you're judging yourself harshly or not forgiving yourself for past mistakes then any act of kindness will be conditional, the real incentive will be to make you feel better about yourself.

Take the Fear Out of Flying

For many of us, the arrival of summer means excitedly counting the days until we down tools and set up the out-of-office before we head off to warmer shores for a fortnight in the sun. For those with a flying phobia, however, that dream holiday can become a nightmare plagued with anxiety and fear.

The Comeback

A desire to 'comeback' is the difference between making excuses or fuelling motivation, failing or succeeding or applying the handbrake or stepping on the gas when it comes to facing any one of life's various and inevitable challenges.

With some outstanding views at the top and a load of white-knuckle twists that make you want to throw up, it's made me get myself together in ways I'd never have guessed at. Here are 8 things I've learned from nine years of chronic illness.

Three Habits For Every Startup Founder

Habits help, they give you structure, a routine. They set up the framework and help you to be consistent and persevere. Habits also define who you are...

How You Scare Away the Money

Your body is the first to know whether you have any blocks around money. It will know that faster than your brain (no wonder, as it has millions of nerve cells perceiving information!). You will feel discomfort or a liberating sensation when thinking about spending it in a particular way.

Three Small Steps to Become More Resilient

Like our immune system, resilience is built up over time. Every challenge we overcome has the potential to better prepare us for the next. But, unlike our immune system, this doesn't happen automatically.

Creating a More Compelling Story of Your Life

My question to you today is, If you were to go through the stories that have made up your experience, what genre would you classify each of them as and is that classification helpful to you?

Here Be Dragons (Step Out of Your Comfort Zone)

Victoria Ward | Posted 08.02.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Victoria Ward

What it doesn't see, is that while there may be dragons in the uncharted territory, so might there be lands filled with riches and opportunities. For the brave and the bold, those riches and opportunities are there for the taking, and with the right resources the dragons are there to be slain.

A Right for Silence

Have you ever wondered why the most prestigious areas in the city are usually the quietest? Why executive business lounges in the airports have no bright screens/ads/loud music/shouting announcement (very different from normal waiting areas)?

Feel the Fear, and Do It Because of It

Victoria Ward | Posted 22.01.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Victoria Ward

I have been feeling a little disconnected of late. I'm self-employed, and as many people who work for themselves will understand, that can be quite isolating. Not being one to sit around wallowing in self-pity, I decided to create a collaborative events and coaching company with a friend.

The Aftermath of Christmas on a Relationship and Family

As a nation, we seem to put ourselves under more and more pressure each year to make Christmas better and to try and make people happy - and as a result we make ourselves miserable.

When a Stranger Rejects You

Why does rejection from a stranger hurt so much? Even the mere idea of a stranger's rejection is enough to put off the most brazen of us.

Set Your Theme for 2016

I believe in the ability - the inevitability in fact - of people to change. Our brains are learning all the time. Learning, analysing, making sense, incorporating the new learning, creating new beliefs and thoughts then causing new behaviours.

Happy Birthday to Me

Anastasia Dedyukhina | Posted 03.11.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Anastasia Dedyukhina

Did the situation really change? Only in my head (how cool is that?). I made calculations and figured out what I could cut on if I were to work with her. I mentally got rid of everything inessential and discovered that I won't suffer much if I had to give it up.

Choosing Happiness When It Feels Like the Wrong Choice

Tremaine du Preez | Posted 15.10.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Tremaine du Preez

As a coach I often work with loss and change and the tremendous stress that these two partners impose. I knew how to work through this with a client but I had no will to do so with myself. Instead I withdrew into a small, solitary routine where I could be heartbroken without being judged.

If Only I Could Bottle This Feeling...

Jeff Brazier | Posted 30.09.2016 | UK Entertainment
Jeff Brazier

Here's another crap misconception. That it's egotistical to love yourself. I was accused of loving myself at school, far from the sad truth that I had a lot of healing to do before I was to understand what it meant to love myself. Now I realise it's something that people say to others when they are threatened by someone's confidence as it reminds them of what little acceptance they have for themselves... I see beauty all around me, in people, places, objects and actions. That's love and it's a very powerful thing!
