What do you do with your emotions?

By | June 23rd, 2014|Being in the Now, Changing Habits, Habits|

What do you do with your emotions? Do you label some of them ‘good’ and some ‘bad’? Are you an expert at distracting yourself? Facebook? Food? TV? Drink? Most of us have some sort of strategy to avoid anything ‘unpleasant’. The truth is though, that getting in touch with our feelings is vital, why? because when we know how we are feeling we can identify what it is that we need to do to make ourselves feel better. It is highly unlikely that food for instance will make us feel better if we’re not actually hungry and as for spending hours on Facebook that is more likely to deplete our energy! Our feelings are key to us being powerful and feeling [...]

Relaxing…… in the build up to Christmas

By | December 7th, 2013|Being in the Now, Changing Habits, Habits, Peace|

Like it or not Christmas is coming…. the question is are you going to enjoy the build up and beyond, or are you going to be running round like a headless turkey trying to get everything ‘perfect’ and end up ‘stuffing’ yourself?? I strongly recommend that you accept the inevitable and do your best to enjoy the whole experience. Here are some tips to help you make the most of it. Prioritise….do things in order of importance. Even if you don’t manage to get through your ‘to do’ list, do what you can. Be a human being not a ‘human doing’. Say No where appropriate.… The problem with saying ‘Yes’ to please others is that people then expect us to say [...]

Social Media ….it’s all about relationships

By | June 24th, 2012|Being in the Now, Changing Habits, EFT, Habits, Listening, Relationships, Stress/Fear/Anxiety|

Despite the fact that I apologised in my last blog for not writing more regularly, I succeeded again in having a long gap between posts! I won't go in to my reasons, because quite honestly they are not important to you readers, what is important is consistency. On Friday I was on a course run by Sussex Business Bureau and I was reminded of the importance of regular communication.  Louise Fenwick, Zoe Cairns & Emma Pearce, specialists in social media and marketing, explained how social media is all about building relationships. People want to do business with people that they 'know, like and trust'.  It's the same in life isn't it? We all want to be around people that we 'know, [...]

Affluence, Unboundedness & Abundance

By | April 19th, 2012|Changing Habits, Confidence, Habits, Health, law of Attraction, Relationships|

Deepak Chopra has written a book called Creating Affluence - The A to Z Guide to a Richer Life, and in the front of the book is written 'Affluence, unboundedness, and abundance are our natural state.  We just need to restore the memory of what we already know.' What are your thoughts about that? I know from past experience that when I have been anxious about not having enough money or work, more bills seemed to come in and work got  'thin on the ground'.  I also know that when I have chosen  to relax and  trust that work and money comes to me in abundance, that is what happens! So is it just a 'mind shift'?  I believe that focusing [...]

What do you really want this year?

By | January 1st, 2012|Confidence, Habits, Resolutions|

For a lot of people, New Years Resolutions mean frustration, guilt and a cycle that they are very familiar with. Statistics  reveal that 40 to 45% of adults make one or more resolutions or goals for themselves, and only 75% of them make it past the first week and 46% make it past 6 months! Making a New Years resolution is always a good step because you’re 10 times more likely to attain your goal than people who don’t explicitly make goals Do New Year’s Resolutions really work?  Absolutely, anything can work if you resolve to do it and you stick to your commitment.  The trouble is that if a part of you doesn’t want to give something up or start something, then you won’t.

Success…what is it for you?

By | December 4th, 2011|Changing Habits, Confidence, Habits|

I am currently doing a 10 session seminar about 'Success'.  During the course we have been looking at the paradigm of success as we know it, so that we can create something that is much more powerful. So what is a paradigm? 'a typical example or pattern of something; a pattern or model:society’s paradigm of the ‘ideal woman’ a world view underlying the theories and methodology of a particular scientific subject:the discovery of universal gravitation became the paradigm of successful science '. Oxford Dictionary and what is 'success'? 'The accomplishment of an aim or purpose: the attainment of fame, wealth, or social status a person or thing that achieves desired aims or attains fame, wealth etc'. Oxford dictionary The problem with [...]

If you think you are beaten, you are….

By | October 29th, 2011|Being in the Now, Confidence, Habits, Music, Stress/Fear/Anxiety|

Are you beaten if you think you are?  I'd say in the moment of believing that thought, absolutely. If a football team believes they're going to lose, what chance do you think they have of winning? A positive state of mind really can mean the difference between success and failure.  Even if all the evidence shows that the opponents have never lost a match it's still important for the players to think positively  about their chances of winning. Focusing on winning, working together as a team and being present to what's going on in the match will make all the difference to the score.  Even if the team doesn't win at least the players will have done their best and enjoyed [...]

Make peace with Imperfection

By | August 14th, 2011|Being in the Now, Changing Habits, Habits, law of Attraction, Peace, Uncategorized|

The other day I was in a charity shop searching for a particular book.  Although I didn't manage to find the book I wanted, I came across another book a friend had recommended years ago.  The book is called Don't Sweat the Small Stuff ..... and it's all Small Stuff,  by Richard Carlson.  I figured there was a reason why I had found this book so I decided to buy it. One of the things I sometimes hear myself thinking is 'I don't have is enough time'.  I even go as far as imagining that if I had more time my life could be 'perfect'. This is a common complaint but the reality is we all have the same 24 hours, [...]

Hiding behind the Belief “I’m not being good enough”

By | July 25th, 2011|Being in the Now, Changing Habits, Confidence, Habits|

Do you have a conversation in the background that says "I can't do that, I'm not good enough"? We can't all be experts at everything, learning something new takes practice.  For a lot of people  it isn't okay that they can't do something first time.  Most people want to give up when things get tough; they just don't want to do what it takes to achieve it.  Saying "I'm not good enough", is a great way of avoiding being good at something.  The reality is that most people fear success more than they do 'failure'.  Like Marianne Williamson said so beautifully .... Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. [...]

How easy is it to change your habits?

By | June 23rd, 2011|Changing Habits, Habits, Uncategorized|

A friend of mine sent me this great piece of writing the other day.  I want to share it with you because  I think it really sums up the impact habits have on our experience of life.  See what you think ..... Who Am I? You may know me. I'm your greatest helper;
I'm your heaviest burden. I will push you onward or drag you down to failure.
I am at your command. Half the task you do might as well be turned over to me.
I am able to do them quickly, and I am able to do them
the same every time, if that's what you want. I am easily managed.
All you've got to do is be firm with me. Show me exactly [...]
