#Life-Coaching for Christmas and The New Year – Three Things Can Change Everything.

With Christmas only around the corner and the New Year right behind it, now is a great time to do some self #coaching. Look at the time in front of you and search for a specific moment over the next 10 day just for you. The time can be split over a few days or all together in one larger slot.
Find a quiet space where you will not be interrupted. If you are thinking wow that will be impossible, be #coaching creative. Will you be in the car on your own at any time? If yes, add a little extra time and pull into a car park as this will be fine. #LifeCoaching can be done anywhere especially when you are applying #coaching on yourself for yourself. You just need to find a time and a space for it.
I am assuming you have found the space and the time, here is what you do.
1. Reflect on the year just past and ask yourself, what went well, what could have been better?
2. Imagine you are now at the end of 2017 in the same place. Ask yourself ‘What one awesome thing did I achieve this year?’
3. Now plan how you are going to do this awesome thing. What, who and how can help you to achieve it?

#Life-coaching is a very powerful tool for change and it can be done by one of my expertly trained #life-coaches (who you could hire to ensure you achieve this awesome thing) or you can #lifecoach yourself. Make sure you take the arch with the awesome future not the arch of the brick wall to nowhere.

Whichever arch you take, I want to wish you huge #success, robust #health and infectious #happiness for 2017.

New book now available as a paperback as well as an EPUB and MOBI and 50% discount on the website. ‘A very interesting, amusing, and thought provoking book. A good, easy read. I love the fact that the author did not accredit her health and recovery to any one thing – but all the ‘little steps.’ Jackie Hammans

Cancer Free

Cancer Free

In 1992 I was told I had nine months left to live. Since my terminal diagnosis of breast cancer and an aggressive form of lymphatic cancer, I am now an international bestselling author, professional speaker and I have built a successful coaching business, I am married and living a happy and healthy life. None of this would have happened had I not been diagnosed with cancer. I am not saying this to impress you; I am saying this to impress upon you, that cancer can be the most powerful catalyst of change.

‘A lovely inspiring, uplifting and funny read. Reaffirms to seize the day, every day!’ Prue Gent

Throughout this book I will be telling you my story at each stage of my journey. What happened, how I handled it, the outcome (if applicable, or if it adds more information for you), what I was offered in the way of medical support, what I did, what extra things happened and any other titbits to inform and amuse you because as you will read here in the book, I believe humour is a great healer.

Autumn Appraisal

Tags: , , , , , , Personal Success

wooden-road As I march my way through autumn, I realise the year has galloped away with me and I have not achieved all the things I started out to achieve. Now normally I would start to beat myself up about this lack of commitment to goals and achieving them. After all said and done, as life coaches we promote the setting of and achieving of goals as the mainstay of our activities as coaches. So how come I am not getting upset Read More

What does good health mean to you?

SELF DIAGNOSTIC BOX

In line with my own definition of good health, where am I now?

I realise this seems a strange thing to ask you to consider. The reason I ask is because we are all at different levels of health and for some of us good health would just mean being able to walk up the street without getting out of breath. For others it means being full of energy. You need to determine your own definition of health before you will know if you have it or not. Spend some time thinking about the answer and write it down in your note book.

You are what you eat!
There are many sayings about what we eat such as Read More

Time For Your Passions?

Time is your most important commodity. There, I have said it. You cannot afford to waste any time because it is not refundable. You cannot mortgage it or borrow it from someone else. You are given the same amount every day and, at the end of the day, it has gone.

Everyone has the same amount, it is what you do with it that is the important part. I am not suggesting that you currently waste time deliberately; it’s just that, as a business owner, you can easily become involved in the details and gradually create unhealthy processes, procedures and politics. These all absorb your time unproductively. Read More

The Easiest & Most Effective Relationship Tip In Difficult Situations

Tags: , , , , , , , Book Extracts, Tips

This is a great tip that I use when confronted with difficult situations. It is the simplest technique you will learn in the Personal Success Handbook and yet it is one of the most powerful ones. It is called Low ‘n’ slow, and all you need to do is to speak in a very low tone and at a slower pace.

If you lower you tone by one or two levels you will disarm the situation. Determine your level of speaking normally and mark the level out of 10, where 10 is shouting and 0 is not speaking. Practice going up and down the scale until you know what number you speak at normally. Now all you do is lower your voice one to two levels. For example if you find your normal voice tone is level six on your scale then during confrontation or conflict, lower your tone by two levels. Use the same technique for your speed of speaking, with level 10 being nearly garbled it is so fast and 0 is not speaking. Read More
