Monday, June 26th, 2017

If I asked you to tell me who you are without being able to use titles such as mum, wife, partner, sister, manager, employee what would you answer? Would you answer easily or would you find it difficult?

Often as women, it can feel our identity is so tied up in who we are to others, we forget who we are to ourselves. What we love, what makes us happy, what we stand for. It’s easy to know who we in our responsibility roles. We play those roles on autopilot. They are so well rehearsed, we don’t have to think about them.

June’s Empower focused on discovering your true purpose in life. You may be wondering what knowing your purpose has to do with self-esteem.

Self-Worth: How To Value Yourself!

Monday, May 15th, 2017

This month’s newsletter explored self-worth and how for each of us, it ties in with what we believe about ourselves. It can feel as if our belief and values are fixed.

They help us navigate the world and give us a sense of ‘knowing’ and belonging. They don’t change much, if at all and they are just what we believe. (more…)

Courage: Believe You Can, One Step At A Time!

Monday, April 24th, 2017

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.

Learning To Believe In Yourself

Monday, November 14th, 2016

At one point or another in our lives, we all question whether or not we are good enough, capable enough, skilled enough, rich enough and successful enough! Sometimes these feelings can become overwhelming, which is when self-doubt really takes hold and begins to negatively impact on your actions and ability to enjoy a happy life.
