You don’t need to have it all

Having it all. Are we over this conversation yet? Let’s say it together: Hell Yes! Aren’t we all so tired of it. You can have it all. You can’t have it all. You can have it all but not at the same time. How about this: You can have what you are willing to create. IF. If you’re willing to truly define for yourself what that is. If you’re prepared to go deep and be honest about it. If you’re aware enough to realise that you actually don’t need that much to be happy. If you are ...

The #1 myth that stops you from meditating

You’ve been told to meditate. It will be good for you, they say. It will help you quieten your monkey mind. It will bring you peace and calm and make you all zen inside. It will help you create more space in your life. You will grow to love it. All of that is true. And then they say this: All of your thoughts will disappear from your mind. Say what? This is when your BS antenna goes up. You tried to meditate once or twice. You sat in an awkward cross legged position on the floor. You set ...

Learning to live a simple life

Something interesting has been happening lately. I have been dreaming of living a simple life. Craving it even. And I find myself moving toward it more and more each day. I also know that I’m not alone as I am hearing this more and more from friends and clients as well. Many of us are seeking this kind of quiet change. It’s not necessarily a standard practice, this searching for simple. We all live in such crazily busy times. We glorify busy. How many hours we can work. How little ...

Feeling tired? 10 ways to recover and thrive

  Tiredness. We all feel it. Sometimes we are just tired at the end of a long day. Sometimes we haven’t slept well and struggle to get through our to do list. And sometimes, we feel that kind of world weary tiredness, right down into our bones. The tiredness that makes it hard to fall asleep, to stay asleep, to get the rest you need, to restore your spirit. Most of us have been there. As we move through the busyness of the first part of the year, and hit the change of seasons, I see ...

March Round Up: Blocking possibilities, podcasts and writing…

Hey there. So usually when I do my roundup I moan about how fast the past month has just gone. But not this time. Is it just me, or did March feel like it went on for six months? I was in the midst of a major relaunch of The Career Toolkit, plus the usual speaking gigs, coaching wonderful clients and thinking about my next book – but it kind of went sloooooooowly for me – far too much in there and a much too frantic pace. I know what I wasn’t alone in was some of the funky ...

She was blocking her own possibilities…..are you?

Picture this: A woman sits in front of me. She is amazing, but doesn’t fully realise it. We start talking. She has come to see me because she wants more for her career than what she is experiencing. Secretly, she actually wants more for her life. She feels stuck. Stifled. And more than a bit over it. We unpack what’s going on currently. Work. Home. Wellbeing. Life. And then, as the time passes, we go deeper. “If there were no limitations regarding time, money, commitments or ...

What does being bold for change mean for you?

It’s still dark outside as I write this, the first glimpses of light just starting to peak through. I wanted to be up super early today, because it’s an important day. It’s International Women’s Day, a day where we celebrate the wonderful achievements of women and girls around the world. It’s also a day where we remind ourselves just how far we have left to go, to live in a world that is safe, just and equitable for everyone. And it’s a day where we focus our collective ...

February roundup – Failure, confidence and living in abundance

Well, February went super fast, short month and all. For many of you, I am hearing how quickly the year has sped up, and for some, how overwhelmed you are already feeling with your schedules and to do lists. I feel you. I set my year up in advance way back in October – business planning like the good strategist that I am. After having a luxuriously slow January, Feb hit me with a bang and a boom. Yes I had planned it, but it got so very full so very fast! I’m finding my flow now, ...

WLW 015 Dr. Ezzie Spencer on Living an Abundant Life

Do you feel connected to your body and to your natural rhythms? Do you flow easily between your masculine and feminine energies, with periods of time of intense activity and equal amounts of time for rest and restoration? Or does your life feel a little off balance (or maybe even a lot)? Do you feel as though you are pushing and striving and feeling exhausted by the daily grind? If the latter is true, then this conversation with Dr. Ezzie Spencer is for you. Dr Ezzie Spencer is a beautiful ...

The question that will set you up for failure….every time

Last week I wrote about the truth of becoming more confident. And the reality is that it’s the small things you do every day, the baby steps, that get you there, not the giant leaps that we have in our minds. Today I want to clear up another myth for you, by debunking a question I hear all of the time. It’s a question that sets you up for failure, and can only lead to you feeling badly about yourself. The question is this: How can I be my best possible self in every moment? You see ...

The truth about becoming more confident

I was recording a bonus interview for the upcoming launch of The Career Toolkit program with a dear client yesterday. The topic was confidence. We were talking about her 26 year career journey and how confidence has impacted her throughout – both negatively and positively. It was a juicy and super helpful conversation that I know members will gain such great insight from. And right toward the end, she said the truth that all women need to hear, something that we had been working on and ...
