Dare to Dream: Four Ways to Live a Life on Your Own Terms
Learning to thrive, not just survive: 8 Steps towards a more balanced life
In coaching terms we call this effective goal setting. It’s the starting point for creating the life you want to live. It’s the opportunity to dream, to visualise and to really set out for yourself how you want your life to be, with the view of working towards getting that sweet slice of the cherry pie.
There’s a kind of secret special sauce involved in super-effective goal setting, which means that goals must have the 4 P’s of being Positive, Personal, Present and Possible.

Mama used to say: Learning from Loss
Impostor Syndrome is a psychological phenomenon in which people – and by people – I mean predominately high-achieving women find it impossible to believe in, and internalise, their achievements. They fear being ‘found out’; putting their successes down to a combination of external factors such as luck, help from other people, even horoscopes. Guys – and forgive the generalisations here – are more likely to attribute their success to internal factors such as talent, intelligence, sheer hard-work and determination.
And here’s the thing; without that loss, without finding a strength I didn’t know existed, without taking big steps to move away from something towards something which is ultimately Where You Should Be™, I would have remained lost.
Each day now, I have my compass directly placed. It’s placed towards making my folks, and myself proud everyday. It’s pointed towards living a true life where I can be my most authentic self and help others find theirs. That’s my motivation.
