Faith or fear?

The way of the cross

Faith and fear both demand that you believe in something you cannot see. You choose!”

I love this quote from Bob Proctor. I also love the symbolism of this image from the Camino de Santiago. Even if you’re not religious or spiritual, there’s something to appreciate in the scallop shell as a symbol of journey and renewal, and the Cross of St James as a symbol of faith, courage and hope in the face of difficulties.

What’s your choice going to be? Will you run from fear or stand firm in faith and conviction that you have been given the resources to meet the challenge?

Anything is possible

Anything is possible

Here’s some #mondaymotivation for you. I’ve got a to-do list a mile long! Don’t get overwhelmed. One step at a time, keep focused and before you know it you’ll have made significant headway. Tick something off on your list, be proud of yourself, and then you can reward yourself with your favoured tipple. Mine’s ginseng matcha at the moment. Yours might be builder’s tea. Or a double espresso. Or maybe gin. xx

98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed

Dr Seuss 98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed

I had a bit of a confidence wobble today. Maybe some of you did too. Here’s a message for all of us. Remember: one step at a time. Set yourself achievable goals, and don’t worry about the final picture – just focus on achieving each goal as you go, stepping back now and again to reevaluate where you’re going. Talk to people; don’t try to do it all alone. They will be an integral part of your success story. And YES, you will get there. 98.75% guaranteed! (Dr Seuss says so, so it must be right.)

Coaching for confidence, focus and resilience

Piano played by the Beatles
Earlier this year I had the wonderful opportunity to play the iconic piano used by the Beatles in Studio 2 at Abbey Road Studios.

Negotiating with my 9 year-old recently about his piano practice I was reminded of this photograph – well-worn keys reflecting a lifetime of dedication.

I’m finding that it can be difficult to help children to learn that things worth having are worth working hard for, and how to bounce back from disappointment or failure when things don’t go your way.

Grit and resilience is something we need to work on as adults, too. Perhaps you’re struggling with confidence or motivation, or life has just become too overwhelming. Coaching can give you a greater awareness and appreciation of all that you are capable of; a renewed focus, structure and purpose; and the tools and support to reach your goals.
