Rest in Peace

WARNING: This post may not be quite what you think it is from the title!

I hope this short video helps you to begin to deal with any negative aspects of your life right now and find more peace of mind everyday. In this video I refer to the book ‘The Space Within: Finding Your Way Back Home‘ by Michael Neill, which I’ve only recently come across, but it has had a huge impact on my understanding and deepened my wellbeing.

Please share this post with anyone you think might benefit from it and as always, love and gratitude,

How to develop an attitude of gratitude (and why you should)

 How lucky are you- Developing an attitude of gratitude

Today I had the privilege to be taken on a tour of The National Star College at Ullenwood near Cheltenham.  In case you don’t know it, the college is for students with disabilities and aims to provide them with opportunities to realise their full potential in life, in whatever way suits them.

Here’s a quote from their website:

 “At National Star, we’re driven by our vision for a world in which people with disabilities are able to realise their potential as equal and active citizens in control of their lives. This sits at the heart of everything we do, from the personalised and world-class learning we provide via National Star College to training, specialist services and our work in the wider community.”

What struck me most on the tour was the overwhelming emphasis on giving the students more choice.  Often we take for granted just how much choice we have in our lives, when some of these students are working towards being able to communicate what they want and deciding on their own care plans.  Imagine not being able to tell anyone how you’re feeling or what you want for breakfast! This visit has made me realise just how grateful I am for all the choices I get to make in and about my life.

Inner Wisdom Project – Excitement

Inner Wisdom ProjectPart 2excitement

I’m doing a project to tap into my inner wisdom on a number of different topics.  Find out more by checking out my first post   >>here<<

Today’s recording is on the topic of excitement.  I’ve been putting off doing this for some time, partly because I had a cold and sounded awful but since I’ve been better, because I was worried I wouldn’t know what to say.  This is really funny because the whole point of this exercise is I don’t know what I’m going to say!  Ha ha just goes to show how our thoughts can trip us up.

Guest Blogger Hazel Robinson: Is your wardrobe getting you down? Would you like to reignite your spark?

Hazel RobinsonI asked my lovely friend Hazel Robinson to write a blog for us, because she is passionate about helping women to feel good, just like me! Hazel approaches this from a different angle though, with her fabulous business Nuts About Style.

In this blog, Hazel writes about how she discovered the link between what she was wearing and how she felt, and how this can make a real difference to you too.  Read on to hear more of Hazel’s story…

How To Super-Charge Your New Year’s Resolutions In 3 Easy Steps



So, if you’re like most people you’ve probably talked about resolutions on New Year’s Eve and in the days afterwards.  Also, like most people you’ve probably already started to struggle to keep them up.  Or maybe you’re in the other camp – because you know they don’t work for people, you don’t bother setting any at all.

Neither option is very satisfactory, because you know there’s stuff you want to change or achieve, but you don’t want to waste time (and get your hopes up) if it’s not going to work out.

In this blog post I’m going to reveal the reasons why resolutions don’t work and my 3 easy steps to finally set yourself up for success.  This is the same system that I teach in a lot more depth on my 7 Days To Tame Your To-Do List online programme.  If you want this year to be different, to get the life you really want, you’ll want to be part of this FREE training.

Walk Of Fire: The Final Chapter

zacks house 066

If you’ve been following my blog you’ll know that I started a series of posts about an amazing day I took part in back in October.  It was an event designed to help people overcome fears and challenges and take a giant leap forward in just one day.  You can read my first post here, which was about how not taking part in one of the activities actually taught me something about myself.  Part 2 was about being first in line to break an arrow with my throat!  Find it here.  This 3rd and final part is about walking on hot coals and how it made me challenge my fears.

I met Libby Horsman at a recent business conference for women and I was very impressed with her enthusiasm about her own personal development, her support for all the great businesses at the conference and her plans to write a book about her story. We’ve been corresponding ever since and I love her down-to-earth style, so I asked her to write a blog for you.

Libby works as beauty consultant, and she also writes blogs.  She is currently working on her first book The Angel Who Grew Her Wings, her personal story of change and transformation, which she is planning to launch in the summer​ of 2015.  You can check out Libby’s own blog here.

I invited Narjas to write a post for my blog because I think the ‘problems’ she talks about are not that unusual. In fact, I would go so far as to say that most of you will identify with at least one aspect of Narjas’ story.  This post originally appeared on her own blog here and you can find out more about the graphic design work Narjas does by checking out her website iNKLiNGS.

Over to you Narjas 🙂

3 Ways NOT Walking On Broken Glass Improved My Self-Esteem (and what you can learn from my excuses!)

broken glass

A life changing day

I know it might sound a bit dramatic to say that taking part in a firewalk changed my life, but it’s true.  Every day I’m discovering more things I can do now, that I found difficult or impossible before.  This blog post is part one of a 3 part series about one short day that changed everything.

It all happened just a couple of weeks ago, when I went along to a one-day event aimed at overcoming fears and challenges.  The event was organised by my friend John Denley and was called Breakthrough UK 2014 – the name certainly turned out to be very apt.

I learned loads throughout the whole day, but definitely the most valuable to me were the two physical challenges: arrow breaking and the firewalk.  There was another challenge too, a walk on broken glass, which I didn’t take part in.  Strangely though, not taking part taught me something too.
