Our theme for this month is confidence. In addition to mindset, the second part of the confidence jigsaw is courage. I don’t know about you but anytime I hear the word courage I think of the lion in The Wizard of Oz who goes on a journey with Dorothy and the other characters in the hope that the Wizard will gift him courage. It turns out that in spite of always feeling fearful Cowardly Lion was acting with courage all along. He believed that feeling fear meant he wasn’t brave. He didn’t see any courage in the actions he took when he felt fear – because he focused on the fear.

In my latest edition of Empower (subscribe here), I discussed the three core obstacles that have revealed themselves to mums time and again during the hundreds of coaching sessions I have facilitated over the last nine years. As mentioned in that newsletter, it may surprise you to learn that these obstacles are in no way related to energy, time or money. I refer to them as the 3 Cs and I can help you to successfully overcome them all, supporting you to achieve your dreams and so much more! This month, I am focusing on the first of the 3 Cs, which is courage. Being courageous is directly related to fear. One can easily over power the other and, through my proven techniques, I can help you ensure that courage triumphs every time! (more…)
Throughout September, I have been focusing on the dreams and aspirations mums visualise during the calm of a family break. Often these thoughts for the future end up by the wayside when ‘normality’ resumes. Yet you can change this and create a new reality for you and your family that reflects the lifestyle you truly want and deserve. (more…)
The summer holiday can be tricky for mums, with the typical challenge of balancing work and childcare consuming much of your time! Yet the family holiday can offer sporadic moments of calm during which you can truly reflect on your lifestyle and consider whether it is what you want for you and your family. The trouble comes when you return to your normal routine and get little time to continue exploring ways to create a happier, more fulfilled life. (more…)
