• Our biggest barrier to entry is our mindset

    The other day I was listening to Melissa Ambrosini interview Denise Duffield-Thomas about wealth and business. And one of Denise’s statements etched itself into my brain – Our biggest barrier to entry is our mindset. We, ourselves, are the biggest barrier we need to overcome to start anything, anything we want. We know our minds are powerful, but we often lose sight of reality and listen to the chatter in our heads. From experience that chatter isn’t alays the most encouraging. Often we are our own hardest critics. Humans are incredibly routine beings who like their comfort zone and will do almost anything to keep ourselves within that area, to…

  • Habits – will they change your life?

    Searching to figure out how to make change in your life? Something big or small? Have you been looking for the key to lasting change. The magic that works even when you don’t want to. Us humans are inherently lazy beings, we are driven by routine and find comfort in the known. Each day we wake and often repeat the same series of small actions over and over – be they helpful or not. To take steps towards our goals, to change our lives we need to change these actions – our habits. Which is easier said than done. And this is why we continue to do the same thing…

  • How Meditation Saved My Soul

    Meditation has become mainstream cool. You see “famous” “influencers” doing it on Instagram. Your Mum’s yoga friends are doing it. Your Sunday brunch gang do it. There are classes and retreats all focused on mediation. But what actually is mediation? Yogapedia says ‘Meditation is the process of quieting the mind in order to spend time in thought for relaxation or religious/spiritual purposes. The goal is to attain an inner state of awareness and intensify personal and spiritual growth.’ But that feels a little to rigid for me. For me meditation feels like slowly, calmly, peacefully quietening the doubtful, mean girl voice in my head. Helping me to focus on what…

  • BIG BOLD BRAVE

    A lot of us set new years resolutions whilst on our summer holidays, and then, maybe, take some action when we get back to “real life” but by the time February rolls around, the goal has been forgotten and hustle and bustle of “normal life” resumes.   Or maybe, you got to mid year, and your working day after day counting days to the weekend, waiting for something to change.   I totally understand this. I have been there to!   But do you know when it changed for me?   I got crystal clear on what my goals were. I made an action plan I got accountability   And…

  • Who Pulls your Trigger?

    In life there is always someone or something that will trigger us, make us anxious, angry or otherwise. We can not change other people we can only change ourselves, our behaviour, and our reactions. So, although we might spend years trying to change the person who is triggering us. At the end of the day, the only control and power we have is within ourselves. (This is another one of those scary moments where we have to look inwards!). Now the first step is to gain awareness. Be aware of the person or thing that is triggering you. Can you articulate why they trigger you? To really deeply understand your…

  • The plague of busy

    As we walk down the street we often greet people with “Hi, how are you?” only every expecting to get “good, fine, or worst of all BUSY” But is this how we really feel? We wear the busyness as a badge of honour, a point of status and then we compare our busyness with others – oh she’s not as busy as I am she only has 2 kids, works 20 hours, lives closer to town, her kids are small, big, she’s younger, older the list goes on and on. But what does it matter and why do we do this to ourselves? Firstly, lets look into comparisonitis. When we…

  • Jump out of the safe zone!

    Typically human beings like to live inside our comfort zones. In the area we know to be safe, secure, and without much resistance. But inside this area we are rarely challenged. And because of this we don’t see the growth and success and fulfilment we desire for ourselves. Think about your own life. Think about the last time you felt a little stretched, a little outside of your comfort zone – maybe it was at work when your boss asked you to do a new task or take on a new responsibility, or maybe you went on a first date, wore a new colour or dress that you normally wouldn’t, perhaps…

  • Do you allow yourself to feel happy?

    When things are going well – you got a bonus and pay increase at work, you relationship is going from strength to strength, you have amazing friends and family, you have been on a lovely holiday, you have a beautiful house – Do you actually allow yourself to feel happy? Or do you self sabotage? Research by Gay Hendricks has shown that we all have a set point in life. Below this set point we are in our comfort zones, we know how to live in this area and our minds are comfortable to do so. But if we rise above this set point – be it with everything going well…

  • Creating Space

    As the weather cools down, we enter a new season, and the nights become longer – Lets create some space in our lives! Creating space in our physical environment frees up space in our minds. This is essential for creation and manifestation of our dreams and goals. So I encourage you to go through your wardrobe and any summer clothes you didn’t touch over over the summer just gone – sell, gift or donate them. Then go through your winter clothes and dispose of anything that doesn’t fit, is worn, or you just know you won’t wear it. Before throwing an item out thank it for its service in your…
