Are people who you really think they are?

I was taught never to judge someone by ‘where they came from’, ‘what they did’ and ‘who they were’ until there was a reason to do the judging.  In life, we are all too quick to make a judgment on another without considering their story, and the actual facts of why they do what they […]


Path 1

The path of business and life is not a straight line

Our lives, as well Our lives, as well as our businesses, have a seasonal ebb and flow which we have no control over.as our businesses, have a seasonal ebb and flow which we have no control over. I find that the business  owner who is self-aware, and understands how they themselves think and operate, have […]



Is self-reflection good for you?

Have you discovered your greatest gift? Do you know your strengths and weaknesses? How effective are you at work or in your business?



Creative Expression

As humans we take our creativity for granted! What is easy for one, is not necessarily easy for others.  We put very little self-recognition on what we can do with little. This means we do not recognise that this is the gift we have. If we recognise our gift we are then given a choice […]



Why do birds of a feather flock together?

This behaviour started for us as children within our families, then friends and neighbours.  We moved into the schooling system and played sports, there was Church and hobbies and the list goes on and on.  We continued to gravitate to the things that we enjoyed and loved and thus moved into comfortable places where we […]

This may seem a very strange comment, and from my understanding of relationship building, being resilient is having the quality of being able to be bent and stretched in all directions, whilst being able to bounce back to your original form, when the pressure is off. We need to be able to do this to […]

In life we can only control certain things that relate to us personally. Most people work hard at doing their best to control other people and circumstances, which of course is impossible.  Managing our everyday life and experiences can be a full time job in itself. We tend to have complications at times. This can […]



Friendship – are you a true or false friend?

For me, the most valuable thing I have to give someone is my friendship.  It is true and tested, it is not given and taken lightly, and it is there for as long as anyone wants it. Over the last couple of years I have become more aware of friendships that went very deep and […]




We hear the word Mindfulness being used a lot today, whereas not so long ago it was all about Meditation. They both have the ability to create something similar, coming from the same place. Both support the shutting down of our mind-chatter.  This is often negative self-talk and which is destructive. By stopping and slowing […]



Who controls your life?

Who controls you and your life?  I hope that you will say YOU, and if not, you would like to understand this better. Wanting to take back this part of yourself, your self-talk along with your pride and courage, is the first step. We all have two real choices in all situations, whether to say […]
