When submerged in water you have the choice to overreact (fighting against the current, risking exhaustion and drowning), Under-react (becoming overwhelmed and completely giving up to the water pressure and drowning), or learning to find peace and strength within it - finding your balance and allowing yourself to float to the top.
Replace 'water' with 'stress' or 'problems', and begin recognising your way of 'coping' and possibly self-sabotaging.
Mine used to be a shift be
At a Children's Group a couple of weeks ago a few of the Mums pretty much cornered me to ask some questions:
1) How do I get my Son to speak so well at such a young age?
2) How do we manage to always be 'so well put together'? (said begrudgingly).
3) How do I fit everything in.
So let me be clear here: My simple answer is that I DO NOT fit everything in. Somedays I won't do that 'much needed clothes wash', on others I will prioritise one or a few things over others &
There is a belief that knowing ourselves means knowing and only embracing, connecting with, and showcasing the 'likeable' and agreeable characteristics of our being.
You know, the kind person. The loving person. The patient person. The self who meditates, is slow to anger, and regularly gives to others.
To believe that we are only the positive, creates a dissonance within us - birthing a desperate need to cling on to the positive self concept we have created. You hear it al
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
YOUR EMOTIONS ARE THE DRIVING FORCE OF YOUR BEHAVIOUR.
Depression, stress, envy, and pain; unresolved traumas, insecurities and fears... Your emotions are the driving force of your behaviours.
Instead of denying, repressing, eating, drinking, or projecting your emotions on to others, take the time to sit with your emotions, trusting yourself with the strength to close the Pandora's box once opened. Feel your emotions; move with the waves; examine the places it sits, aches,
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....
YOUR TIME IS VALUABLE; YOUR PRESENCE IS PRECIOUS; YOUR TRUST IS EXPENSIVE.
It should only be given to Exclusive Members, and never cheapened by carelessly awarding it to those who have not earned it, or lack the means to maintain it.
Before rushing in to award anyone your full trust, first make sure they can afford your trust. Just like any self respecting Loan Company, check their 'Credit History' - do they breech other's trust? Do they gossip? Do they steal? Can their mo
"Your trust should be expensive. Do not cheapen it by giving it to those who do not deserve it, or have the means to maintain it. Make sure others can afford your trust, by making them earn it, and just like any self respecting Loan Company, keep an eye on the way your Lenders manage their credit. My trust is expensive. How much is yours? ." - Novena-Chanel Davies, The Equilibrium Coach® The Equilibrium Coach - The Goal Architect to Mind, Body, Spirit, Life Balance®-www.thee
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.
Avocado, Basil and Garlic linguine (with cherry tomatoes... which I forgot to add 🤦🏾♀️😄) and a Peanut, Banana and Flaxseeds Protein Smoothie.
People usually hear Vegan and instantly assume your diet consists of lettuce, cardboard, and some kind of sponge like substance that offers substandard protein - I tell you no lies 😄🤦🏾♀️.
People are even more surprised when they realise that you can maintain a curvy, healthy and muscular figur
