Which Groove are you in?

If we only had the courage, the confidence, the spirit, the not 'follow the herd', the mindset, we would all be grooving out a new experience of the present moment and new possibilities for a future worth getting really excited about. Challenge your thinking then - What if your life just got better and better as you got older (and wiser)? Read more...

Getting Clear on What I Really Want – NEW iCourse!

Most people don't bother to spend any time pro-actively thinking about what they really want in life - most of us manage a few vague daydreams or lottery-winner ideas which we believe deep-down will never happen. We may spend hours pouring through websites or brochures to select our next holiday destination, but no time at all thinking about how we'd like our relationships to be in 2 years' time, or what our ideal (and I mean blue sky do anything you want ideal) working day would consist of, or what our bank balance should be in 2012 in order to feel financially free.

Stop Making Sense… Suicide and Six Year Olds

Three weeks ago, I took a birthday cake into school to celebrate Hal’s birthday. Juan was a star – he’d made a birthday crown for Hal and his classmate, Yedra, who was also celebrating her birthday. We sang happy birthday in Spanish and English for both of them and they got to blow out candles –double cake all round! It was lovely. Juan ran the party in such a way that all the kids got cake, juice, party balloons and had fun in the class, then got to run it all off outside in the patio straight afterwards. As we were clearing up, he mentioned that in September Hal will be going up to the ‘primera’ – the first class in the big school, rather than infantil. I asked him what he would do then and he shrugged, smiled and said – be here, of course, teaching the little ones – it’s what I do! He seemed fine and to be genuinely enjoying himself. And when I picked Hal up from school later that day, Juan had collated all the birthday pictures the other kids had drawn for him into a little book. It was a wonderfully thoughtful memento to give a child of their key milestones in their childhood… Read more...

As the gap became wider, their attitudes towards playing changed dramatically - TheO realised he was way behind and started complaining that it wasn’t fair – he got cross and not surprisingly, started trying to cheat to catch up; while Hal, spurred on by his apparent success suddenly changed gear and really started playing to win.

The Magic of Thinking Big (or 3)

Of course, he gets himself into trouble quite a bit, but in general his spirit and energy make him a joy to be around. And, as his mother, who also happens to be a coach who spends most of her day helping adults get over their own limiting beliefs, if there's one thing I want to encourage and nurture and see truly flourish in him, it's this wonderful fearless attitude. David J. Schwartz, in the 1959 book of the same name, describes it as 'The Magic of Thinking Big' Read more...
