The quote above may seem a little bit morbid at this time of year and I definitely don’t want to bring any darkness into your life today.
I want you to think about how this quote speaks to you. In my own mind, it creates a sense of appreciation and gratitude for the now and the magic of life itself. It pushes me to see ‘LIFE IN LIFE’ and to cherish that each and everyday.
Truly ‘live’ your life and know what that means for you.
As 2023 approaches believe in life, believe in your magnetic energy and believe in your self-power.
Remember there is always the deepest love around you and you need never feel alone. Keep your spirits high and use any alone time to reflect on learning from the past and creating an amazing future for yourself.
Alone time can be so valuable to think about what you really want for your life going forward.
Don’t get stuck in your head with negative thinking and over analysing. If you really really want to do something, I know you WILL make it happen. On the other hand, if you say you really want to do something but nothing is getting done about it, you’ve really got to look at that.
There are many reasons why you would want to do something but just don’t and this inaction may be related to some sort of inner FEAR.
You see, I’m there right now. I really really want to do something but I have a HUGE fear of it not working out and this fear comes from experiencing this pain a number of times in the past. So what am I doing about this? Well, I am taking every lesson from the past failures and making changes ever so slowly, rather than just jumping in, which I have done every time before.
I’m not frightened of change, actually I embrace the right kind of change but taking baby steps towards the progression of this change is a better option for me.
I’m learning to move forward but in a different way. This type of movement helps me become more patient, disciplined and consistent with my daily action.
Please don’t stay stuck, it’s a miserable place to be in. Take a look at what tiny changes you can make everyday to help you on your new path.
We’re all in this together and that’s why I do what I do. I just love sharing words of encouragement with you – we all need a little bit of that.
I know you really really want to – so start doing something about it today.
Imagine what’s beyond your dreams, I mean once you have achieved them – visualise that right now.
Think yourself into that zone of dream achievement – isn’t it such a wonderful happy place?
I love this quote by Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” – it says it all to me really.
It’s great to dream, but even better to live out your dreams and it’s all up to you.
I have dreams, lots of wonderful dreams and I believe that they will come true for me one day. I don’t sit around waiting on them to happen – that will never work. I truly go to work on my dreams everyday.
So I ask you today, to think about the dreams you want to make happen and I encourage you to take tiny steps each day into achieving them.
Wishing you a sensational day, dreaming, doing and more importantly, LIVING.
Brave steps of change can be a little daunting at times, however, you must think of the positives; you must stay focussed on all the great things that change can bring.
Yes, change can be a little scary but sometimes the more you over analyse, the more you want to stay in your comfort zone. Surely a great life can only be achieved with brave change, ambitious desire and deep faith in your heart that you are most definitely doing the right thing?
When you feel driven, when you feel responsible for making your life a great life……then you will take the plunge and what if everything does go your way….what if?
What if you had to begin again? I really mean begin again, right where you are. What would that mean for you? What would you want to start again?
Life is a bit like that, sometimes we just have to begin again, start afresh, let go of old ways and encompass new ways – new ways of thinking, new ways of doing and new ways of feeling.
Think of your life ahead as one big blank canvas, with lots of white space to fill with whatever you want to fill it with – what do you want to fill your white space with?
Use your imagination right now to envisage a life of love, love for everything you want to do and who you love being with. Reinvent the next chapter of your life into something truly amazing for you and your loved ones. This space can be entered into the here and now by changing things up for yourself, whatever that will be for you.
So I encourage you today to fill your walking boots with courage, bravery, energy, love, self-discipline, creativity, imagination and determination to make each baby step of change fulfilling and purposeful for you.
Get those walking boots out and rock your socks off into the next episode of YOUR AMAZING LIFE.
Rightly or wrongly, I’ve always battled with living the ordinary kinda life – I just didn’t and still don’t see that for myself.
So, 49 years young, how’s it all looking now?
Well, honestly, probably 75% of it still feels like “ordinary” to me but I now have an absolute CLEAR VISION and SUPER STRONG FOCUS on how to change that to EXTRAORDINARY!
“Bit by bit”, has always been a key phrase for me and it really does work, if you stay consistent and committed to your goal in action.
So what will make the difference now, as opposed to 5, 10 or 20 years ago?
Well, this time, I am building on absolute SOLID ground and my core values are so deep rooted into the purpose behind my vision that even a magnitude 10 earthquake could not shake me off this meaningful path.
You see, I never had that before. I always had the belief and the self-confidence but spinning too many plates, led to too many distractions and therefore building on shaky ground – that was never going to last longterm.
I also just ‘feel it in my bones’ this time around. Everything seems to be pointing in the right direction and I feel like I am dancing towards the finish line, rather than running scared!
It can be exhausting changing your life for the better. So much energy is consumed at the start and it feels like nothing much is happening. It’s usually when you feel like giving up that a little glimmer of hope begins to sparkle from the distance.
Please don’t get me wrong, I’ve had a blast, living most of my ordinary life and it can feel quite perfect at certain times. We all have different definitions of ordinary – it’s really just down to personal preference and can be simple or somewhat complex.
Ultimately, if you’re happy, well in my eyes, you’ve already hit the jackpot and I genuinely salute you.
Does that then mean I’m not happy, chasing the extraordinary? For me, I am happy and I am MOST HAPPIEST pursuing my aspirational future whilst helping others along the way.
I guess, we’re all in this together, so let’s enjoy the process and give back as much as we can.

Even if you never ever become the BEST in your field, the fact that you actually strive to be the greatest, is what will make the difference between being ordinary or being AWESOME.
I always aim to be better today than yesterday – it might not always work out, but at least I go for it!
If I believe I AM THE GREATEST in my field, I won’t let limited thinking stand in my way of progression.
Even if, in the eyes of many, I am not the greatest, I don’t allow their thinking to have a negative affect on mine. Well, wouldn’t that be a bit BIG HEADED then? Absolutely NOT, if it is for a meaningful purpose and aligns with your core values.
Never apologise for aiming to be the BEST in your field. Never ‘dumb down’ your talents and abilities to fit into a smaller box. In my opinion, battle your way out of any boxed thinking and set yourself FREE to achieve greatness.
If you’re not aligned with the above – that’s okay – you just need to kick your way out of that box!
I see you doing AMAZING things, when you let your greatness shine through.

Do you think you know what it’s all about, this life of yours? What if you didn’t dream? What if you just lived your life on automatic pilot and never wished for anything better; never wanted to reach your potential; never wanted to be happier, or to receive more love in your life? What if, all you have right now, is exactly all it ever will be, period?
That’s it, you’ve laid down your cards; you’ve taken life to as far as you could get it; and you’re here – you’ve arrived! – Does that thought suck or does that thought elate you?
A Dreamer and a Doer
Well, if you’re a dreamer like me – a dreamer and a doer like me, that thought probably doesn’t even come into your mind of existence. I believe, your greatest potential, hasn’t even scraped the surface, of what is possible for you. The dreamers mind is infinite and full of abundant creativity, waiting to be energised.
Glimmer of Hope
Everything starts with a dream, an idea, a glimmer of hope – nothing could exist otherwise. To achieve the greatest self, it takes the dreamer from one imaginary world into another – if they want to turn that dream into reality. You see, dreamers are inspired by the beauty and excitement of what could be. So what could be?
Calling all dreamers…..YOU could take that dream, idea, magic of creativity and let it burst with energy inside of you, so much so, that it expands into a magnitude of inspired action, that will catapult your dream into this current reality. The pure magic of this though, is it can only come from the ultimate power within you. Yes, that’s right, only you have the key to release your uniqueness into the now. So dream the dream but make this dream so highly compelling that it pulls you forth and turns into its own super creation.
There you have it – the power is within you. Grow that seed, give it your energy and watch with pure excitement, it manifesting before you.
Thank you for being here.
It’s your life, go get it!!
