Choose your hard

  I saw a quote image this week that went like this:   Marriage is hard. Divorce is hard. Choose your hard.   Obesity is hard. Being fit is hard. Choose your hard.   Being in debt is hard. Being financially disciplined is hard. Choose your hard.   Life will never be easy. It will always be HARD. But we can choose our hard wisely.   I posted this and then got a message telling me how terrible the above…

Are these blocks stopping you from your goal of running a small biz?

  A lot of people I know run a small biz these days – sometimes as their only source of income, but often as a hobby biz on the side.   I started my biz in 2006, and it grew very organically along the way initially without the amazing social media we have at our hands today.   Over the years, I’ve coached friends and clients to help them overcome the blocks stopping them from starting, or growing, their small…

You can smash out the best week/month ever with…

We are all broken

  I love this quote by Ernest Hemingway;   “We are all broken. That’s how the light gets in.”   Reminds me of a blog I wrote on kintsukuroi, a Japanese technique where they take broken items and piece them back together with gold, the idea being that we are more beautiful for having been broken.   The most amazing people I’ve ever met are those who truly know what it is to feel broken, and to learn, heal and…

Do you need to get to un-know yourself?

  I was listening to a Lewis Howes podcast recently, and the guest being interviewed that his personal development had been more about getting to un-know himself in order to better know himself. That’s so true when you’re focusing on self-growth. It’s about releasing all the stories and limiting beliefs that have held you back and have caused you to do (or not do) things that your best self would do differently. Since getting into personal development when I was…
