How can we stop the negative head conversation that tells us we “should be doing more/better”? What do we need to do so we can create more clarity and self love so we can get some control back?
Post Natal Depression
Mental health is a topic close to my heart. I suffered with severe PND for years. There was so much about my own mind that I didn't know how to control. I was at the mercy of that scathing internal conversation. Learning how to direct my thoughts has been life changing and I want to help you do the same.
This isn’t about making the hard stuff go away. It won’t always the alleviate the pain you’re experiencing but it can help you suffocating in it. It’s going to help you develop greater resilience, which is a skill that will serve you will.
And when you think about your goals, do you know why you really have them? Do you know what that biggest drive is?
Think about your goals and dreams. What’s the emotion behind them? Every physical thing we want to achieve or attain has an emotional root. Whether it's the next level of financial success, dress size, relationship or a new car, house or pair of shoes – beneath it all is a belief that it will make you feel something?
When I say “Personal Freedom”, where do you feel that in your body. Take a moment to notice what happens to your body. What do you feel physical happening?
Then ask yourself, “when I say the words personal freedom. Is there a picture in my mind?...
You don't need ice baths, Rocky style workouts and hours of mediation to set yourself up for success. BUT, let me ask you this.
If you’re already thining that you don’t have time to pee in the morning, please entertain me for a few moments and let me see if I can change your mind

to set you up emotionally and energetically for a really great day. It is the number one habit or ritual of the world's most successful people. So why don't more of us do it?
If you are a business owner who also happens to be a mum, I bet it feels like another pull on your time?
Maybe it just feels too overwhelming because you already feel rushed?
How do we make new habits stick?
In the last blog I explained that a mindset shift is the first part of new habits. And without that, sticking to new habits is like pulling teeth.
Well I think these 3 steps with give you just that!.
Most people don’t start far enough back!
If I asked you how you’re going to get fitter/healthier you’d probably tell me you would eat better and work out.
But what if I asked you an additional question? “How do you make all of those things EASIER to do?”.
And if you’ve tried this before, and failed, you can ask, “What exactly stopped me from succeeding before?”.
Let me give you an example. I had this very conversation with a client yesterday. And I asked her those exact questions. She looked at me blankly to start with, but after some guidance she said,
How do you feel when you declare defiantly, “I'm going to start again on Monday”. only to slip and fall by Friday. Do you feel ashamed? Do you feel angry, frustrated?
You know you want to make a change and you know what you need to do, and yet you still keep failing. Why is that?
This blog comes in 2 parts.. #1 is the “Why We Can’t” and in #2 is the “How You Can”.
Lasting Change is Simply a Change of Repetitive Habits
Really, new habits are about a new identity. Which means you're going to need to start with some mindset shifts. Ready?
The Results You Have Now Took Time
Anything you have in your life now, that you don’t want, took time to “achieve”.
It is NOT that you are missing something big and that’s why success is so hard to create – it’s that you are underestimating the powerful of the the small seemingly inconsequential, DAILY, things.
The world's highest performers share various common traits, and one of the primary ones is how they start their morning. This is more than a morning routine. This is a way of BE-ing so let’s dive in.
I'm not just talking about the phone, leave ALL tech alone for 60 minutes minimum, at the start of your day. When you wake up, in a delectable theta state, your mind is like a sponge. It’s the same just before you nod off at night. This is when you have the power to create magic.
So why would you start your day by checking in to someone else’s life instead of your own?
Aside from delivering a huge message to The Universe that you like to start your day searching for external...
When you don't give yourself permission, you invite in a whole heap of self- judgment when we come from a place of self- judgment, nothing good can come from it.
I’ve been thinking about what I could have given myself permission for, that would have made my business journey more fun, far less arduous and anxious, and probably shorter. I’d like to share them with you if I may?
There is no darkness without light. Our entire world is yin and yang. And yet we are conditioned to believe that it’s all about having good thoughts and feelings.
But there is a difference between experiencing an emotion and BE-coming
These emotions can, in fact, be fantastic guideposts for you, clearly showing you what it is you want in your life. Learn to extract the learning rather than judge yourself for the feeling.
Maybe for you, it means you need to quit trying to condense...
All under earners share one common trait. They have a high tolerance for low pay.
Ouch. That was a banging quote from Barbara Stanny in her book “Overcoming Under Earning. Today, I want to share Five Limiting Beliefs That Are Keeping You Under Earning.
“People won't pay what I want to charge”
Tell me, how you specifically know that? How do you know that people are not going to pay what you charge? Perhaps you’ll tell me it’s because you’re not making sales. So here’s another question for you.
How you know specifically that it's your pricing that's the problem? What if it's your messaging? Or that you are talking to the wrong ideal client or you’re on the wrong platform?
The truth of this statement
Is that it’s a deeper reflection of YOU. Consider where you have held back from investing. When was a time you sat on the fence because you didn’t believe in yourself? Or you felt it was “too...
“What are the consequences of thinking that your intelligence or personality is something you can develop as opposed to something that is a fixed deep seated trait?”
What is a growth mindset and why is it absolutely essential you develop yours if you want to succeed in your business?
Is where we have a belief that our intelligence or our personality is fixed, it doesn’t change. We build our life on a set of expectations that we can't/ won’t push past.
Is about believing we are “malleable”. We can change our personality, improve intelligence, learn new skills so ultimately we can achieve bigger and better things in our life. It’s the difference between 2 people being asked to build something from 6 squares of wood (I said 4 in the podcast and now realise that’s incorrect – whoops) and one person building a cube and the other who seeks out additional tools so that they can create something magnificent -...
Which one of these people sounds most like you?
Today we're talking about how you can become your own productivity pro.
You may be wondering why I started off asking, which person you were?
And it's very simple. I want you to get some idea of the language, definition and feeling of productivity that you're functioning under right now. Because part of productivity is making sure you have a definition that serves you rather than suffocates you.
I was a workaholic (because I felt desperate)
For the first six years in my business, I was like many of you.I literally spent as many hours as I could working. I was always on...
