Changes – easy or not?

I’ve been having a few discussions lately with clients and friends about making changes and it’s been interesting to hear everyone’s views. We all know that change is constant in our lives.

Overcoming our habit of excuses

How often have you (and I ask myself this as well!) taken a decision to start a new habit and to take action for a new and exciting goal? The energy and enthusiasm is there for that goal and for a new habit you will start, yet, for one reason or another, you either […]

Quiet courage, quiet confidence

This quote from Oriah ‘Mountain Dreamer’ House, a Canadian author and teacher, is much like the ‘quiet confidence’ that I speak to clients about. The quietness that one lives their life can be so much more powerful than a loud, brash, bragging kind of confidence.

I suspect that you probably […]

As many of you might be aware, I did a triathlon last weekend which I am still feeling very pleased with myself and the achievement. Here is link to last week’s blog about the journey.

I finally did it … Long road towards a big goal

Recall a time when you finally achieved a goal that you had been working on for a long time. Maybe you had a plan, got support from others and took the necessary actions to finally achieve that goal. Yet, what happens when, for reasons outside of your control, something happens and your target date is […]
