Massive Change; an event that has such a huge impact on your life, every moment of it, how you live it and how you define yourself, that you are a different person than the one you were previously. It can happen to anyone at any time and is not because of karma, or due to … Continue reading Massive change requires reinvention of Brand-You
I have never been a fan of New Year's Resolutions; it strikes me that January is about the worst time (especially in the Northern Hemisphere) to start committing to enormous goals and making sweeping promises about our consumption, or denial of, certain pleasures from alcohol to sleep. It is cold, dark and miserable for a … Continue reading Make Changes not Resolutions
It is one of the conversations I hear most often as a Mentor; a client is feeling down, their confidence is at an all-time-low and they've just admitted that today, someone told them they didn't like what they do. "They said my style wasn't right for them", "She said my product wasn't as good as … Continue reading You CAN please everyone – if you want to be average

It reminded me of this blog I wrote during … Continue reading What’s your excuse?
I've always loved this quote. "At any given moment, you have the power to say 'this is not how the story is going to end'". It's tough to see it sometimes, when you're so deep into your own issues, your own problems and head-talk. It can be easier to say "there's nothing I can … Continue reading At any given moment – you can make the choice
My husband John and I have been married for a quarter of a century next April - and this July we celebrated 29 years since our first date; and yes, the time has flown by. We have grown-up and taken an amazing adventure together (we first met when I was 16 and John 17) … Continue reading Making new choices
Create a positive message not a melodrama As I looked at my Facebook timeline today, I was so disappointed to see how many people are posting messages with negative rather than positive language. They include a commonly used sentence on these posts now "I know 99% of you won't re-post this...." What a strange choice … Continue reading Choose positive language
"I'll try" - what do you really mean when you say these words? "I probably won't" or "I'm sure I won't be able to"? That's a choice. A choice you make regularly and without thinking. "I'll try to stick to it this time" becomes your mantra and your choice to accept failure, before … Continue reading Choose not to “Try”
