How to not let fear stop you

13/11/2015 /

It’s awesome to have goals and aspirations that inspire us. But one thing will guarantee to stop you in your tracks when it comes to making them happen – fear!

Fear means well – it’s here to protect us – but you don’t want to let it run the show or you may well miss out on an amazing opportunity, or sabotage yourself in the process or pursuing your goals.

In this week’s vlog I share how you can stop fear in its tracks and go for what you desire.

 

Fear of Visibility? (Start here)

15/10/2015 /

Every now and then I notice some resistance to sharing authentically and frequently online. For example, when I posted my recent blog on my first year of business on Linkedin, I was a little worried that my mention of anxiety and crying may have been ‘too much’, especially since it’s more serious than Facebook.

But I posted it anyway and got over 150 likes and 27 super encouraging comments from old colleagues, clients and people I have never met (along with stacks of sign ups to my email list). People love it when you speak from the heart. Good thing I got out of my own way!

Watch my video blog below to find out 3 mindset techniques to conquer your visibility barriers and SHINE online :).

Another thing that has been really helpful for me is EFT / tapping with my coach. This is why I am doing my practitioner training in 3 weeks – I’m super excited to start sharing this amazing technique with my clients.

Usually the fears are that part of you that wants me to stay small and safe so you can use these techniques to so say thanks dear and go shine anyway!

 

This week I am covering the mindset piece – keep a look out for my upcoming blog where I’ll share some of the practicalities of being visible, including how to manage it when you are still in a job.

How to be confident even if you don’t feel like you are

15/04/2015 /

Confidence. Everyone knows it’s a key factor of success and wants to feel confident in what they do. But what can you do if you don’t feel confident? Can you really fake it till you make it? In this week’s blog I share my confidence tips so you can speak like Winston Churchill and take on the world.

When I quit my job to become a coach entrepreneur, one of my assoUntitled design (2)ciates said to me, “I wish I had your confidence.” This comment surprised me. While I was confident in some respects – I didn’t feel that confident, at least not all the time. A few nights I didn’t sleep. I was worrying that I could have made a horrible mistake: ‘What if I fail?’ ‘What if I regret my decision?’

What helped me make the decision was a solid exit strategy (more in my ebook), a strong belief in my purpose, proof that I could get clients and strong mentors around me. (more…)
