With so many people being hit with viruses and coughs and infections over Christmas there is plenty of talk about how ill health really gets in the way of enjoying the good things in life.
Ever wonder why it always strikes you down on your holidays?......
Hint: It's not the bug - it's the body!
Yep - you heard me - don't blame an increase in the bacteria, viruses and microbes that in reality surround us every day. Ever wonder why some folks get sick, and some don't?
We spend time chasing
We spend energy flitting from one thing to another
Do you feel like you are working so hard but not really creating what you want
Here's 3 things to do
1) Know what you want
2) Know why you want it
3) Be clear about what you need to do to create it
Number 1 - takes QUIET - it takes INTROSPECTION and getting in touch with your desires - no matter how outlandish or uncool ;)
Number 2 - takes CONNECTION - to yourself, to the relationships you have and to the things that light...
This time last year I was in a terrible way. I'd been diagnosed with hypothyroidism a decade before and whilst I had many symptoms they were mostly manageable. Until I deteriorated very quickly and found myself having heart palpitations, which eventually led to panic attacks. I had difficulty breathing. I was exhausted. My whole body hurt. I was gaining weight. I was covered in rashes. I had awful brain fog and a very short fuse, which wasn't like...
9 years ago Stuart Wilde came to me with a chronic bad back. His secretary at work had been telling him to come and get it looked at for months, but work was busy and he kept putting it off. Finally his back was interfering in his daily life so much he couldn’t put it off any longer.
Little did either of us know that 9 years down the line he would have changed his health, fitness and lifestyle so much. Stuart loves to point out that when our paths first crossed...
I had an incredible weekend studying with David Swenson - Ashtanga Yoga Guru with decades of experience in practicing and teaching Ashtanga yoga.
He talked about
THAT feeling! Rushed, busy, inadequate, failing. Familiar?
Such an easy trap to fall into - BEATING OURSELVES UP, telling ourselves we aren't good enough, how everyone else is coping better, how much we are not managing to do in this hectic, fast paced life of ours.
Well what if YOU ARE ENOUGH? Today and everyday? I believe in you!! HARD TO BELIEVE?

How often do you get that feeling that THERE'S ALWAYS SO MUCH TO DO and there's NOT ENOUGH TIME to do it and you need to hit every achievement ASAP and you will lose out if you don't FLOG YOURSELF to do it?
I think I've lived most of my life like I was let out the gate by a starter pistol!!
I didn't so much feel like I was in competition with other people, it was more that I felt like if I wasn't going FULL SPEED, FULL FOCUS, FULL SACRIFICE - then I wasn't WORTHY of all the GOOD THINGS, I was...
What if today you DON'T DOUBT YOURSELF?
I realised I was asking myself 'But what if I'm wrong?' far too often. That question of uncertainty was preventing me from making decisions, being confident, it created ANXIETY and SELF-DOUBT, FEAR and STAGNATION.
Consciously switching the question to 'What if I'm right?' feels completely different. TRY IT!
It's still a question. It still has uncertainty. BUT - it also possesses POSSIBILITY, POTENTIAL, HOPE - and the chance you might miss out on...
