YOU CANNOT OUT RUN YOUR PROBLEMS.
Yes, you read it correctly... you cannot outrun, out climb, dig deep enough under (and not suffocate), or comfortably keep dodging your problems... THEY WILL CATCH UP WITH YOU, TRIP YOU OVER, SURFACE, AND BLOCK YOU.
So instead of avoiding them, stop, take a deep breath, and begin planning the path towards dealing with them.
Problems are like Ninjas - they lurk in the shadows, waiting to get you.
LEARN HOW TO TACKLE YOUR NINJAS.

PRICE YOUR STORY... stop vomiting it onto the laps of others, or giving it away for free.
One of the things I caution Coaching clients about is giving away all of themselves - with no pre-identified cap, limit, or purpose.
Some verbally vomit their story onto whoever will listen, often as an act of justifying why they are where they are, or as a way of proving they are 'qualified' to stand/sit before them. In doing this, many devalue their journey. Why? Because it then bec
A brilliant day had at the KTG Women's Networking event yesterday.
From my 20-minute presentation I now have three new coaching clients booked in the diary, and more to come. This showing the power of connection, sharing, and being placed in the 'right' moment.
Thinking piece: How do you place yourself in the 'right' moment? It's worth thinking about.
Yesterday I spoke about the power of Self-Care, the effects of stress on the brain and body, and the life changing things
Sometimes we are our own worse enemy - we undermine ourselves, we sabotage our success, we ignore our desires, and repress our needs. We act as our own nemesis, actively seeking to find the imperfections within ourselves, and constantly placing ourselves in positions, relationships and circumstances that do not nourish our growth.
We do a better job than our rivals, at blocking our happiness.
So just for today, promise yourself to get out of your own way....
If I read a copy of your resumé, took the time to read through your Linkedin profile, or sat in on one of your interviews, would it be a true reflection of who you are, right now?
Many give the 'sell', gain interest, respect and position, and then if lucky, the 'job', but few truly follow through on what and who they say they are in the interviews.
Look through your CV/Resumé... and then work on maintaining the characteristics and motivation you say you have.
It has become far too easy to become an observer within our own lives; sharing motivational posts, enrolling on free online webinars that we never attend, and excitedly buying into the intentions that fuel our sense of 'doing'.... yet, never turning the intentions into actually DOING.
IT IS TIME TO BE AN ACTIVE PARTICIPANT IN YOUR OWN LIFE.
Before reposting anything, take the time to fully study, digest, and find active ways to incorporate the changes or reminders that mem
Many proudly boast about their irritating levels of perfectionism: some even note it as a "weakness" in interviews, secrectly knowing this pushing of yourself, consistently striving for quality, and getting it right, regardless of personal loss and deterioration, is what some employers yearn... or so they think.
However, perfectionism is also a small internal cry that it is not enough, it is not good enough - maybe you are not good enough, or, if something is missed or not a
There seems to be an obsession with making moves, especially the 'right' moves, with a fear of being left behind, or not 'appearing' to be winning.
Many compare their real life with the glossy social media 'showreels' of others, resulting in rushed commitments, or spending too much time overthinking each turn, wanting to ensure it is the 'right turn' - with quick returns, no risks, large payoffs, and zero investment. This is a fallacy! The ability to take risks, accept losse
BE CONGRUENT, CONSISTENT AND CLEAR IN ALL THAT YOU DO AND SAY, AND ALL THAT YOU SAY AND DO WILL BE YOU. A TRUE, CLEAR AND HONEST REFLECTION OF YOUR BRAND.
Take some time to reflect on the four C's, and then start building the rapport that creates true chemistry.
Ask yourself... Am I truly being myself and standing for what I believe in, in every communication? Am I being Congruent?
Congruence: Paralleism, consistency, match, harmony, agreement, unanimity, unison, unity.
IN A WORLD FULL OF ASSUMPTIONS, BE THE ONE WHO ASKS.
We live in a world where we are continuously stood as the target point of others assumptions and projections.
From assumptions about how we think, what we feel, and who we are, few take the time, and commit themselves to truly knowing by first, asking.
Our assumptions are based upon our own truth, projections, fears, hopes, and biases.
Be the one who asks.
With that said, I am wishing you a blessed and productive day a
