Today Is The Perfect Day To Start Living Your Dream!

Today Is The Perfect Day To Start Living Your Dream!

Can I ask you a question? WHAT are you waiting for? What’s the loop you have playing in your head about why you CAN’T? Today’s an ordinary Thursday (or maybe a Wednesday depending on where you are in the world), it’s not the start of a New Year, a new month or even a new week. Is this your procrastination right now? Are you waiting for Monday? For the start of the new month? Have you written off this year because things turned to crap and you know next year will be YOUR YEAR? Here’s the thing…there is NEVER a right time to make your dreams come true. The trick is to MAKE THE TIME RIGHT. So today, on this very ordinary Thursday morning, without any fireworks or build up….HOW CAN YOU START LIVING YOUR DREAMS……TODAY?? Do you even know that that looks like? Are you clear? Do you have a PLAN? If not then that is the perfect place to begin. EVERY SINGLE THING I have created in my life began with putting pen to paper and gaining clarity. And creating a plan. Then hauling ass UNTIL reality caught up with my vision. Here’s a myth I want to dispel for you. You do NOT need to be special to live the life of your dreams. You don’t need to be LUCKY. Or blessed. You simply need to be crystal clear on what it is you want and be prepared to work at it UNTIL you get the result you want. You simply need to be prepared to work your way through the setbacks instead of letting them...
Get Out Of Your Head And Into Your GROOVE!

Get Out Of Your Head And Into Your GROOVE!

How I’m feeling today 🙂 From the moment I arrived home from my month away, I have been ON FIRE!! I honestly cannot remember when I’ve felt this GOOD! The last couple of days a cold has been trying to catch hold so I haven’t felt physically fabulous but I’ve had the biggest bounce in my step and a grin on my face a mile wide. I’ve even found myself saying “I’m so freaking HAPPY” to myself a few times a day 🙂 Nothing big has happened. No major changes have occurred. But there’s been a massive shift of “something” and I think it’s the fact that I’ve once again let the things that don’t serve me fall away. It’s been no secret that since January I’ve struggled with some sort of transition, no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t get my flow back. It’s been painful and frustrating. I’ve been chasing an elusive “clicking into place” that usually happens for me easily and quickly when I’m ready to pivot. Wouldn’t come. I was trying every trick in the book. Throwing everything at it. But nada, zip…ZERO. This trip took me out of my head. Working and traveling and speaking for the first 2 weeks with Katrina was awesome. Yes, we had some challenges but man we laughed SO much! And we were both fulfilling a dream, together, as a team and that was COOL! Usually I have support when I’m achieving my dreams and the success is mine alone (or the failures) but this time we got to share it and it truly was an incredible experience...
Are you Addicted To Drama?

Are you Addicted To Drama?

You’ve met that woman before right? Drama follows her everywhere. Ex-husband problems. Current relationship issues. She’s fighting with a half of her immediate family. Then of course the friend drama. And that’s just the “life” stuff. Because of course there is also business drama, client drama and money drama. In my 20’s I used to be that woman. I thrived on it. If I had something to fight against life felt normal. I was comfortable with fighting. Fighting was my default. It was taught to me at an early age when I witnessed my parents fighting… a lot. Then the domestic violence. And the violence I was subjected to. WAITING for the violence seemed way worse than the violence itself. In the moment I could deal with it but waiting for it to occur seemed like torture. That and waiting for the sexual abuse. And witnessing my mum’s beatings. ALL OF IT. So how did I stop the waiting…the most painful part? By creating situations that would speed up the process and bring it closer faster. I did a great job of inviting drama on an epic scale when I entered a relationship with my ex (my kids’ father). A decade of next level drama that made me a very good fighter. Thankfully not physically (except for that one time). The end result was that man went to jail and I was raising my kids alone and at the same time helping them heal. I chose to move away from the drama. AWAY AWAY. I moved towns and the drama stopped. But it could have stopped while I was...
Your Opinion of What You’re Capable of Sucks

Your Opinion of What You’re Capable of Sucks

As you sit here reading this post know that you’re sitting on an epic mountain of untapped potential. EPIC. You have the ability to reach heights that would blow your mind. If only you could see it. But you can’t. You might see a glimmer here or there but you’re so weighed down by the baggage of past failures and rejections that seeing your own awesome potential is simply beyond you. Deep down you KNOW you were meant for more…bigger…grander things. But the stretch between here and there is a bridge too far….too overwhelming. And so you busy yourself with “busy-work” to distract you from your GREAT work….from going ALL IN….from playing BIG in the game of life and business. You become frustrated when week after week you’re actions are taking you nowhere fast. “But I’m working so hard” you tell yourself. And you might be. But not on the things that matter. NOT on the things that WILL make a difference and take you higher. Want to know what I see when I look at you? I see the mountain of awesomeness sitting beneath you waiting to be discovered. I see the heights you can reach. And I TRULY believe you CAN reach them. If you trust me and do the work. And are prepared to fail a few times before you succeed. And be prepared to get uncomfortable….but knowing I have your back. I SEE WHAT YOU ARE TRULY CAPABLE OF. We are not the best judge of what’s possible for us. To succeed BIG you need someone who can see what you hold within you, extract...
Habits That Support Success

Habits That Support Success

Here in LA we’ve been super busy including a bunch of travelling between cities and running our events. I’ve felt a weird mixture of being well inside my comfort zone, and at times, out of my depth and it’s in times like this that the daily habits we create to support our success journey pay dividends. My daily practice of coffee and journaling, followed by a gym session is all I need to ground myself and be reminded of who I am, what I stand for, what’s important to me, where I’m headed and why I want it. In times of growth and expansion, it’s easy to lose yourself or get caught up in things that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. I adore travel and it’s a big part of who I am but I also love being home and thriving under the routine I have back there. I never feel homesick but at times I do yearn for being able to prep my own food, train in my regular gym, go to my favourite cafes, walk along my beach and work from my own office. Journaling brings me back to the moment and I’m able to remind myself just how freaking AMAZING this very moment is. Today we have a photoshoot with Caroline White (http://www.carolinewhitephotography.com/business-coaches/) who has photographed Marie Forleo and Carrie Green just to name a few. To be honest the last few days I’ve really been taking this for granted and have had a bit of a “can’t be bothered” attitude to this photoshoot (!!), I think all of the running around...
Being Shortsighted Will DOOM Your Business!

Being Shortsighted Will DOOM Your Business!

If there was one piece of wisdom I wished I’d owned as a start-up entrepreneur over 2 decades ago it would be this… ”don’t be shortsighted”. As driven and ambitious entrepreneurs we want what we want and we want it YESTERDAY. This sense of urgency is crucial and is what builds the type of momentum that generates great success at times so we don’t want to abandon this attitude altogether. But it’s equally important to be continually sowing seeds for tomorrow’s success, and next years success….and success 5 or 10 years from now…. and beyond. So my question…and my challenge to you is “what seeds are you planting TODAY for tomorrow’s success?”. You’ve unwittingly been planting those seeds every day of your life so far. If you’re not happy with your bounty it’s time to take a look at the seeds you’ve been planting. Make better conscious choices and be mindful of the long-term picture as well as immediate growth. Luckily for me, I planted A LOT of seeds in the early days and despite my haphazard approach the sheer volume of my efforts continues to pay off. For example…. Over about a 2 year period (around 2003 – 2005) I moved town, set myself up as a coach and became president of ALL THE THINGS. Being president of “all the things” did didley squat for my bank balance and at the time I figured my efforts were a total waste of time, but those seeds I planted all those years ago continue to pay dividends year after year after year. I dined with the Mayor, I co-hosted events...
