Trying to achieve life-long ambitions can be a long, challenging and very rewarding occupation. However, many of us often sabotage our own success by fostering limiting beliefs and negative thoughts that diminish confidence and lessen self-esteem.

Success can only be achieved by adopting a positive attitude. Believing you can succeed will empower you to give your very best to accomplishing your goals. Always remember, whether you think you can or can’t, you are right.

Set yourself some personal goals: things you really want to achieve. Write them down and keep them to hand at all...

Negative thoughts will limit the way you live your life. Limiting beliefs prevent you from fulfilling your true aspirations and can destroy your confidence, self-esteem and ultimately your future.

If you are desperate to take control of your life’s direction, but have doubts and excuses that prevent the necessary changes from taking place, you will be harbouring damaging negative thoughts and limiting beliefs.

Do these statements sound familiar?

  • I won’t get the job so I shan’t waste time in applying.
  • I was hopeless at maths in school so how can I possibly help my daughter...

Have you ever observed your single, child-less friends? From a brief glance, you’ll notice they splurge happily on the latest trends; they can often be found working out at the gym or stretching at a weekly Pilates class; and they have time to relax over a glass of Chablis with colleagues. Delve deeper and you’ll find painfully high stilettos, a fabulous little black dress and matching lacy underwear all ready for that just-in-case, last minute night out with the girls.

Contrast this with your life. As a busy mum, you’re no doubt wearing Marks & Spencer’s safest...

According to an ancient Chinese philosophy, clearing out the old is vital if you are to attract and invite the new into your life. An almighty clear out will help you let go of the past and give you an immense positive feeling that your life is moving on and making way for a fresh start!

De-cluttering may sound like a laborious task but it serves one fantastic purpose: to make you feel instantly calmer and better about yourself! De-cluttering your home – or even areas within your home – will give you a more positive outlook and clear your mind. The onset of Spring gives us the...

Springtime is finally here and, like most mums, you’re keen to get your annual spring clean underway. And, like most mums, you’re probably finding this a difficult task when the children are constantly vying for your attention or pulling out all the toys you’ve just put away! Your list of spring-cleaning tasks might look like this:

  • De-clutter the kitchen drawers and cupboards
  • Sort out the toys in the playroom
  • Clear the garden so the children can enjoy the nice weather
  • Put out-grown clothes away or give them to charity

But, have you thought about spring-cleaning your...

Wishing you a fabulous day, full of relaxation and special treats from your loved ones! Happy Mother’s Day!

Mum

Some days I swear I'll change my name,
Never wanting to hear that word "mum" again.
Mum, can you do this? Mum, can you play?

A word I hear hundreds of times every day.
Whilst taking a bath or even sat on the loo,
Mum, can I come in, can teddy come too?
Mum, I am hungry,. Mum, if you please
and other riveting questions like these.
Mum is the chef, the cleaner, the friend,
Mum is the "baddy" in games of pretend.
Mum's there for a cuddle whenever you weep.
Mum reads you stories...

Dealing with negative people is always an arduous task. Being around someone who is extremely negative can be physically and emotionally draining, no matter how positive you try to be. When exhaustion sets in, it is easy to allow their pessimistic and depressing mood to take hold of you too – but there are ways to avoid falling into this trap!

Offer Love and Assurance
Negative people often feel angry, confused, frustrated or even fearful. They believe they have been let down in some way and can only see things in a bad light. Additionally, they develop low self-esteem and...

Children Learn What They Live

By Dorothy Law Nolte, Ph.D.

If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live...

The credit crunch has hit households in such a powerful way it has left many of us feeling insecure, fearful and powerless. These emotions centre on the uncertainty that the recession poses to our financial well-being, stability and security.

Listening to conversations and working with clients, it is clear that when times get tough, people divide into one of two types. One rises to the challenges of the times ahead and adapts accordingly. The other backs down and withdraws from the uncertainty they face.

The choice facing us all is simple: you buy into the paranoia and the media’s...
