Now I totally get the feeling when you feel like you have been working on your goal non-stop for so long and you aren’t getting anywhere. There isn’t enough time in the day to do even more work, so why isn’t the needle moving? Before we get into this, I want you to know that it is such a common feeling and you shouldn’t feel like you are the only one. But I have come to the realisation that busy and productive are too completely different things. Maybe, instead of being productive you are just simply being busy. A lot of people glorify being busy but instead of this, we need to work smarter which makes us more productive. So what is the difference?Read More
We are always told to just do what we are passionate about. As long as we find a job we love, we will never work a day in our lives. But what if we don't know what we want to do or what we are really passionate about? I have started new jobs before where they went around the circle of new people - everyone giving one interesting fact about themselves - when they get to me I could not think of one interesting thing about me. Have you been in this situation before? Here is how to find your passion when you don't really know what it is you want to do.Read More
I love podcasts (especially self-development podcasts), I listen to them when I walk the dog, on my commute to work and sometimes even in the shower.

You can get just so much inspiration from each episode. Here are some of the podcasts I am loving at the moment for self-improvement.Read More
My attention span is shorter than I am (5'3'' FYI) and it is a struggle when trying to get things done that need my undivided attention. I have improved over time and tried different ways to stop procrastinating and start getting the work done in front of me. Here are some things that help me focus when writing a blog post (or focus on anything for that matter).Read More
I thought I would share my experience on why I canceled my membership with a top coaching website and it wasn't because I didn't think the membership site was no good. I didn't cancel because I did not get any real value from it, I actually loved the membership.
It was a great place with so much information and value. So much so that I could have spent hours just looking at all the information and watching the videos and taking everything in and for the most part I was.Read More
Self Doubt can be so damaging, we should always believe in our own ability to make our dreams come true. I have dealt with self doubt my whole life and missed out on so many opportunities because of this. Almost everything I have begun has ended in me doubting myself and giving up because I feel like I cannot do it. Now I am recognising that this is becoming a problem and stopping me from living a fulfilling life so I need to take action to gain confidence in myself.Read More
I worked in an office for a while in an entry level position and there seemed to be just one path through the business in terms of progression. All of my colleagues had their sites on another job within the company and for a while I did to. It seemed like the smart move to make, more money, a little more responsibility and it was where everyone else was going. So when a job opened up I first thought I would go for it like a handful of my colleagues. But then I stalled.
