Sometimes it feels like an inner calling that pulls you powerfully towards a cause. At other times, it can feel like the wind at your back, constantly pushing you towards it, even though you might not know what ‘it’ is. There are those who are born into a fixed role and their Destiny is to use their position in a way no one has done before. And then, some people ‘accidentally’ trip into theirs. One thing is certain, Destiny has a different vibration to it. Everyone has a Destiny to fulfill in their lifetime. Every single person comes into this world with something, that when used for the highest good of others, will leave this world better because they were here.   The...

Is it possible to have a Career that is aligned with your Values, Beliefs and Interests? Or, is this asking for too much and should you just be happy that you have a job? Each week I hear clients expressing a deep desire to make changes to their professional path. “I just can’t do it any more! It’s sucking the life out of me. I feel like I’m dying inside.” These are actual statements I hear on a regular basis. They come from intelligent, responsible and resilient people, who don’t walk away from commitments easily. This is so much more than what could be considered typical workplace frustration and that’s what makes what they’re saying so important.   A Shift is taking place  They’re highlighting...

To best convey the most instantly empowering question you can ask when life throws you a curveball, I need to tell you this first. During the winter months in snow country, we’re quite accustomed to the police reminding us how to drive in dangerous winter weather. Too often, when someone hits an icy patch, skids and loses control of their car, the mistake they make is to turn the steering wheel in the extreme opposite direction of the skid. Then, without fail, the car starts going much too far over in that direction so they frantically turn the steering wheel back in the other direction. Back and forth they go, resulting in one big chaotic mess. The tip the police give...

Life is growth. Growth means change. Change scares the heck out of most people. But change needs to happen if you are to stay relevant and thrive. How then, do you manage knowing that you need to change, with feeling anxious and overwhelmed at the thought of it?  First acknowledge that there is always some fear and discomfort associated with change. Second, and importantly, know that a key determinant for growth and expansion is this: Your Hunger must be greater than your Fears. Your Hunger for what you want, has to be greater than the Fears/ resistance that hold you back. So, it doesn’t mean that there won’t be fears, it just means that your Hunger for what’s on the other...

Why are you here? Perhaps you’ve asked yourself that question at one point or another in your life. If you have, you certainly aren’t alone. It’s at the very core of our nature to want to know the purpose of our existence. I believe you’ll find that when you strip away all the layers of what makes us different, we're here for the same reason and that is to transform our Fears into Power and leave this world better because of it. Fear -> Power. That’s it. What does that really mean? At the core of our Authentic Selves we know that we are loved and loving, safe, abundant, connected to a greater whole and that all is possible. We were born...

Clearly, T.Harv Eker's list "The 13 Biggest Differences between Rich People and Poor People" is speaking about Financial Wealth, but what I find fascinating is that there is a whole other level to it. If you replace his references to Financial Wealth with Emotional Wealth, you now have a clear view into the Attitudes and Behaviours of people who live happy, fulfilling lives.   T. Harv Eker's Financial Wealth // Emotional Wealth Consider these 5 comparisons: Financial Wealth: Rich people are committed to being Rich. Emotional Wealth: Emotionally wealthy people are committed to being happy. They do so by consciously engaging in beliefs, attitudes, behaviours and habits that are aligned with their happiness. Financial Wealth: Rich people see a challenge as an opportunity for growth...

Wise words indeed, from Don Miguel Ruiz. The Four Agreements contain simple yet powerful insights that will help you live life with greater ease.
