Be the human you want your child to be

“You do not have to make your children into wonderful people. You just have to remind them that they ARE wonderful people. If you do this consistently from the day they are born they will believe this easily.” William Martin

It’s easy to lose touch with the fact that our kids are innately wonderful…they don’t need fixed or changed, they need understood and accepted, and maybe a wee bit of shining up here and there as they forget the awesomeness of who they really are and learn to lead their lives with love 😎

Yet this is what we ALL need!! YOU are wonderful, you’ve just lost touch with that gorgeous fact.

If you have children in your life I invite you to stop focusing entirely on them (not in a neglectful way just taking the foot off the pedal slightly!) and start focusing on yourself.

YOU are your children’s role model (and the range of young people in your life) ‘Do as I say not as I do’ doesn’t work!!! Kids are savvy, they KNOW when you are lying to them AND yourself.
They pick up on your dissatisfaction, your lack of self belief and your flagging energy.

So DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

You creating the life and work YOU want IS NOT SELFISH….in fact it’s the absolute opposite as you living a fulfilling live you love teaches your children how to do the same. It teaches them that they have permission to be the wonderful soul they are.

So this is a polite reminder that YOU are wonderful so get a grip of yourself and start shining…if not for yourself to begin with, for the young people around you ❤️

DO YOU REALLY NEED A BUSINESS COACH?

DO YOU REALLY NEED A BUSINESS COACH?

I’m a coach and I always have a coach for my own personal and professional development. I could be here a long time explaining the benefits I’ve reaped in all aspects of my life and work as a result of this support.

And there’s been times when I needed something else.

I’m deeply biased towards the benefits of coaching but I’ve got no interest in selling you the myth that coaching is THE thing that will change your life. It might be…but that’s your decision, not mine or anyone else’s.

The irony in the coaching world is that some coaches shout so loudly about their services and how AMAZING they are that it doesn’t serve to help their potential customers actually pause and listen to what they really need.

[clickToTweet tweet=”The key to our success and wellbeing is getting the right support at the right time…and trusting ourselves.” quote=”The key to our success and wellbeing is getting the right support at the right time and trusting ourselves.” theme=”style2″]

We all need support yet we don’t all need a coach. We’d likely benefit from one yes but need? No.

So here’s the thing, there are 3 types of support:

🦊 Informational – we want to understand how things work

🦊 Emotional – we want to feel heard, fulfilled and connected and able to navigate our lives effectively in a way that feels good

🦊 Practical – we need help to DO something. Lifting a sofa is a lot easier with someone else to help, right?

So I wonder, what help would you benefit most from right now?

Do you really want to work with a coach to help you become more productive?

Or would you rather spend that money on paying someone to implement and action your ideas?

Do you really want to invest in another course that teaches you something new?

Or do you want to hire a coach to help you leverage all the amazing resources you already have?

Coaching is powerful and has the potential to unleash the power within you BUT it’s not all things to all people. Sometimes it’s not the most effective investment for you depending on what you need at a particular time.

So my invitation to you is to curious about what you REALLY need and make sure you get that xx

It's a bonkers time in our world just now which means it's SUPER important to look after ourselves.      How do you stay in and get back into a high vibe? I know music is a big part of my life and being ok...and also having a giggle. In uncertain times find your own...

The power of now

We spend so much of our time and energy living in the past or the future when these places exist only in our minds. The ONLY place we have power is this moment. Right now.
