Turning Your Vision into Reality

Turning Your Vision into Reality

Anyone who has assembled a jigsaw puzzle knows the necessity of having the picture at hand to refer to.  I am working on one now and was reminded of the importance of keeping a vision or goal top of mind so as to work purposefully.  Just like a...

Wish You’d Known That Sooner?

Wish You’d Known That Sooner? Do you wish you'd known that sooner?  I hear this all the time – from my clients, from other women in business and I even hear myself thinking it out loud. “I wish I had known that sooner, had more confidence sooner,...

Taming Your Dragons

Dragons are not to be slayed because they are aspects of you.  When you face them and bring them alongside you benefit from their fierceness and power.  What if you had that boldness working for you?  Rather like training a horse to ride so that you can use it’s speed and energy to go farther, faster.

Seven Things that Undermine Confidence – Thing One

Seven Things that Undermine Confidence – Thing One

Seven Things that Undermine Your Natural Confidence:
Thing One

Dear (first name),
In preparation for the upcoming Lunch and Learn on Friday, April 12th, I identified seven things that can undermine natural confidence. You may have come to believe that you need to do something in order to gain or grow your confidence, however, the truth is, you are already confident. Nevertheless, there are common thoughts that destabilise that confidence.
When you recognize the underlying beliefs (which are generally not true), those ideas no longer sabotage your natural capacity to feel self-assured and trust in yourself. You are able to see and accept things the way they are, not how you want or need them to be. You can see the truth of who you are – an intelligent, resourceful person doing your best with the information you have in each moment. You begin to understand that on a spiritual level, there is nothing wrong, everything is unfolding as is for reasons you many not yet comprehend.
Here is Thing One.
Thinking You Need to Be Special
Growing up, you may have been told that you were special, and you absolutely were in the eyes of loving parents. You may have been praised for being cute, precocious and clever. These messages may have had you come to believe that being special meant you were safe, loved and accepted by those you depended on for care.
Perhaps you came to understand that if you excelled in anything – school, sports, art, music – your achievements garnered praise and recognition from others. You learned to please, perform and perfect as a way to guarantee continued appreciation for who you were.
However, current research suggests that the number one cause of anxiety and depression among young people is the belief that they need not only to be special but to be exceptional. Pressure is exerted to get the best marks, get into the best schools, play on the best teams, have the best clothes, friends, etc. These pressures exert a lot of stress and expectations.
What if it was okay to be ordinary? This does not mean that you are not unique, with your own distinctive combination of talent, strengths, intelligences, it means it is okay to be all you are and no more. What would that do for your self-esteem?
Join us for the upcoming Lunch and Learn to further explore your Natural Confidence.
To Your Freedom and Success,
Marlene

Social psychologist Amy Cuddy’s research shows that two traits, trustworthiness and confidence, account for 80 to 90 percent of first impressions.   Why are first impressions so important? “First impressions matter when you want to build a lasting trust,”

Failure as an Option

Failure as an Option

In Supercoach’ Michael Neill’s book – Creating the Impossible, he provides parameters for taking on your impossible project and differentiates it from something you should, could or ought to do. I believe that often we talk ourselves out of what we really want because we believe we might fail. What if it did not matter?

Impostor Syndrome: The Silent Saboteur

Impostor Syndrome: The Silent Saboteur

What makes Impostor Syndrome a silent saboteur is that it often goes unrecognized and undiagnosed, even if someone is working with a therapist or coach. Impostor traits may present as chronic anxiety, low self-worth, perfectionism, fear of failure, abrasive personality or difficulties with working collaboratively. The way through? We live in a thought-related experience of reality. Fortunately we can learn to differentiate thoughts and become mindful of those that undermine confidence and worth.

Genius, New Thoughts and Light Bulb Moments

Genius, New Thoughts and Light Bulb Moments

“I used to think that genius was the speed of the computer (the brain) and storage capacity (the mind). It’s not. True genius is new thought. Everybody has the capacity for genius in that sense. It is possible to get quiet enough to have new thought. It is possible to access your genius in a way that takes less work, not more and minimize the energy required to research, analyse or calculate. You can use your own innate wisdom to inspire and guide you.

Ultimate Goals for the New Year

Ultimate Goals for the New Year

A number of years ago, I attended Science of Mind courses offered through the Centre for Positive Living. From time to time we completed an exercise of writing down a total of 100 goals divided into three separate columns under the headings, Be, Do and Have. We repeated this assignment approximately 6 times over the three years – to document our then-current 100 combined Be, Do, Have goals. When setting your Have and Do goals and resolutions this year, I suggest you include some Being states too. These elevated ways of being ultimately lead to greater abundance, health and happiness.
