Open Book

So, this is me… …on first impressions people usually see me as a confident and positive person and they are right; I am confident because I am happy with whom I am and I thrive to be positive, always. Those who attend my training or are coached by me have described me as inspirational and interesting, that’s really nice to hear and I feel blessed to know that I am inspiring others by being myself…an ultimate compliment in my opinion....

Elders With Attitude

Elders with attitude! I love people watching, do you do that too sometimes?   You can learn so much by watching others behaviours, interactions ad responses (or non-response). We as human beings are rather fun and interesting to watch and most of us do love watching others and how life situations affect them.   Their reactions and interactions, in some way, provide us with a little comfort…   …that we are ‘normal’ or the we aren’t the ‘only ones’ or...

“Close your eyes, close your eyes…

“Close your eyes, close your eyes…   …now close em!!” (John Keating) So what do you see? There have been so many occasions when a client informs me that they cannot visualise as they aren’t’ that way inclined.

Get Your NLP RAS on!

Get your RAS on! I guess I now need to explain what I mean by that statement. It's a term used in NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming) As mentioned in a couple of my motivational emails; our minds are bombarded with a huge amount of information daily. It’s your RAS (Reticular Activating System) which sorts through all this information for you so you aren’t overwhelmed, it’s the filter I mentioned. Your RAS sifts through and filters sensory information and stores it in...
