Where there is a will there is a way??

Are you response-able? Are you able to respond rather than react? Do you feel empowered in most areas of your life? Where do you most feel empowered? At work? At home? In your sports team? Where do you feel least empowered? Why? Is it a lack of skills and knowledge? Perhaps a lack of boundaries with others? Are you unwilling to take response-ability for changing your behaviour and changing your life?

Are you a pawn or a player?

Most of us have times when we act as pawn, allowing others to move us around to suit their end-game. Sometimes it is because we don’t have enough energy to fight it, see Day 4 –Energy Vampires, sometimes it is because of our ‘mindchatter’, see Day 2, at other times it isn’t an important issue, so we are content just to let it go.

Shining a light on solutions to procrastination.

Are you busy? It seems a strange question in this day and age where we can fill every spare minute with online activity. Are you one of the info-junkies, re-loading the news 10 times a day, maybe you check facebook and instagram for the latest uploads and when all else fails browse blogs and the online shopping sites?

  • Items where we don’t have skills or knowledge, or
  • Actions that don’t give us energy, ie things we don’t want to do.

Are there people like this undermining your behaviour change?

Are there people like this undermining your behaviour change?

Not long ago vampires were everywhere on our TV’s, books and magazines, like ‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’ and the Twilight Series to name a few. Although the dominance of these mythical creatures has lessened in the entertainment world, I want you to know that people with the same characteristics as vampires are indeed around you everyday, sucking your energy away and leaving you drained and unable to effect the behaviour changes you want in your life. Today’s task is to identify them and design a management plan. Read More

Would eating snails put you outside of your 'comfort zone'?

Would eating snails put you outside of your ‘comfort zone’?

One mantra I use is “ Do something that scares you everyday” This has got me into some tricky situations but as you will see today, it is the size of the risk that is important.

Are you sitting comfortably? Or, maybe standing up at a new standing desk that is supposed to increase your health and maybe your lifespan? What surrounds you? Who surrounds you? What are the activities that you feel happy to do? Those that bring up fear?

Where is the line that flips you into the panic zone? How can we support ourselves to move beyond those behaviors that we habitually do? Read More
