  • Who's afraid of success?

  • If at first you don't succeed...


  • What is holding you back?

    Do you think that you have to be ‘lucky’ to have the life of your dreams? If so, get real and make a promise to yourself today to get rid of this erroneous, limiting belief. If you think you’re not attractive enough, smart enough or strong enough to succeed then sure as the sun rises each day, that will be your reality.

    You see, belief systems can be a bit of a double-edged sword; because when we believe something to be true, we subconsciously set about searching for evidence in the world that proves this belief is ‘true and factual’.....and I've said it before, and I'll say it again: what you notice is what you get.


    ‘whether you think that you can or that you can’t, you are usually right’.

    - Henry Ford



    This sums up what I am trying to say perfectly. What do YOU think you can’t do? How much easier would your life be if you chose to believe that the Universe is abundant, that you deserve to be successful and that you have everything you need inside you to achieve each and every one of your goals? Speaking from experience, life is a whole lot better on the ‘life is good’ side of the fence. So jump the fence today and you’ll see where I’m coming from!

    If you need a little help jumping the fence, Affirmations are a great way to get rid of those old belief systems that don’t serve you well.



    Responsibility = Empowerment

    One of the biggest obstacles we face when we want to create positive change in our lives is fear of change. In the roadblocks stakes, resistance to change is a biggie, and it can literally stop you in your tracks. So how do you get through to the other side? The trick is to assume total responsibility for your own life. Now, I’m the first to admit this is scary…after all, it’s much easier to blame outside circumstances, other people or the environment for our inability to manifest success; because that means we don’t have to change...right?

    But seriously, what is this costing you to stay where you are? When you realize that your thoughts have created everything in your life up until now, it can come as a shock; but I’d like shed some positive light on the situation now…..if your thoughts have created everything in your life up until this point, this means that by changing your thoughts, you have total control over your future! And if that’s not the most empowering piece of news, I don’t know what is. Bottom line? Change your mind and change your life.



    Who’s afraid of success?

    Each of us is on our own path, and it’s in our nature to strive for the best life has to offer. Obstacles are a natural part of progress, but if we become paralysed by our own fears, then before we know it, we become stuck in a rut; too scared to do anything. Does this sound like you? One of the biggest fears amongst human beings is our fear of rejection. So many of my clients tell me how desperately afraid they are of failure. But in actual fact, fear of success is often the real issue.

    Success can change things...and as I mentioned earlier, many people are scared of change. So why do we fear success? Well, sometimes it's because we don't believe that we deserve it. But the good news is, that can change! Learn how to break through the change barrier and I promise you, you won’t be disappointed.

    One of the biggest lessons I have learnt in life is that once you listen to your higher self and begin doing what you love, success comes automatically. So if you want to live the life of your dreams, choose the path that carries the most light...if what you are doing is contributing to the higher good of others, then you will automatically attract the things that you think are important such as money and a more comfortable lifestyle.

    But by that stage, you will probably have realised that those things aren’t quite as important as you thought. Whatever path you are on, striving to be the best you can be is incredibly empowering; it gives you a feeling of purpose.



    If at first you don’t succeed...

    Persistence really is the key! We live in a society where instant gratification is the norm. So it can be really tempting to give up on our goals too early. But the truth is, your goals ARE worth striving for! Read up on all the successful people you know about...I can guarantee you that the reason they got where they are today is because they absolutely, categorically, refused to give up; and it always took more that one go!

    I want to instil this persistence and drive into the very core of your being. Because once you have it, you will become unstoppable – plain and simple. Okay, so I sound a bit ‘Pollyanna’? Well, maybe so but it’s only because I know that persistence works. It worked for me and it will work for you too. So put on your pigtails and eat some ‘steak and ice-cream’...a good dose of Pollyanna never hurt anyone.
