Are you a spectator, benchwarmer or player in your life?

Look around you, how many people are going through life robotic like, on autopilot, busy being busy every day, week, and year.  The path to who knows where……a spectator of life.  Watching other’s lives progress while theirs stay stagnant and the feeling that life is passing by becomes more and more of a reality and spectator [...]

Vulnerability – weakness, fear, hurt, betrayal or beauty, rawness, deep love, power?

As a personal development and wellbeing coach I ask my clients to open up completely, to drop any façade and just come in raw and deep.  Now this doesn’t often happen by itself and it takes a conversation [...]

There are 7 days in a week and “one day” isn’t one of them!

“Most people work hard all their life, and spend their health trying to achieve wealth.  Then they retire and spend their wealth trying to get back their health.” I’m sure you’ve heard that old quote but why is it often we need to become ill ourselves or be standing at a funeral of someone who died [...]

Are you living a complaining life – a gratitude challenge

I have to be honest but I really struggle to stay engaged when I hear people complaining about everything in their life or worse still, complaining about people in their life and doing nothing about it.  The energy is draining and one of powerlessness! Let’s face it, we all complain, even if you think you [...]
