So here you are at the beginning of another year. Are you excited for what the next 12 months will bring or are you dreading getting back into the old routine? Did you make your usual ‘resolutions’, go the gym more often, give up smoking, eat healthily, lose weight, earn more money? Read the rest of this entry »

Overwheovrwhelm3lm is the cousin of procrastination, which is closely related to doubt, worry and fear.  Let me explain.

When you have a goal or even just ‘something you need to do’, if it’s something you’ve not done before, in your mind it can become scary.

That’s because of your thoughts.  Well your subconscious actually which is a little devil.  That will hold you back from whatever you desire.

It works like this.  Say you have a goal, and that goal is to call 10 people about your business in the next couple of days because the long term goal is to earn more money.

Well firstly you decide how much more you want, you have a figure in your head and come Monday morning you’re fresh and up and you start making calls.  By 11am you’ve not spoken to a soul.  Everyone’s either in meetings, on holiday, or just plain unavailable.  So you go make some coffee.  You gird your loins and start again.  By 12.30 you’ve spoken to one person who isn’t interested in your service or product.   You decide to stop for lunch, which then lasts longer than it ought.  Maybe two hours.  You sit down again at your desk at 3, having had some very urgent tidying up to do for the last half hour, and emails to answer and Facebook people to connect with.  At 5pm you decide to call it a day.  Come Tuesday morning you start later and the day progresses pretty much as yesterday, although you did manage to catch one person who said call me back next week as this week isn’t good for me.

By the time you go to bed on Tuesday night, your mind is already thinking perhaps I aimed too high.  What if I go lower with my expectations?  What if I make the goal not as much, even though some bills have come in and you’re now wondering how you’re going to pay them.    As the week progresses you begin to feel totally overwhelmed with all of  it,  your doubt has turned into worry which has turned into fear and then that had becomes procrastination and finally you stop trying.  Say Ouch.

What has happened is that you have allowed your thoughts to rule your actions.  And it’s not an easy thing to change them.

But in order to change your circumstances you have to change your thinking.

There are some simple ways to do that.

The first being to stop worrying.  The only thing worry does is cause stress.  And I know it’s easy for me to say and sometimes very difficult to do.

One of the reasons that you procrastinate is often a fear of the unknown.  After all its called the comfort zone for a reason and when you attempt something new your subconscious will often kick in, whisper in your ear and say stuff like “why are you bothering, isn’t it ok here.  What’s the matter with you”?  and sometimes unfortunately it’s not just your subconscious its your nearest and dearest.  Friends, family, colleagues, who all put doubts into your mind.

What you have to remember is that as much as they care about you they have their own agenda and its often in their best interests rather than yours.  Let’s face it if you change, move forward, earn more, you might leave them behind and then where will they be?

You have to be strong and be true to yourself.  Pushing through the barriers and finally living to your true potential might mean letting go of stuff, of relationships, of thoughts, things that don’t serve you anymore.

What you have to remember is that you only regret things in life you don’t do.

I have a programme that could set you on your way to freedom.  Freedom from those doubts and fears and worries.  Freedom to be who you deserve to be, living to your true potential.

And let today really be the day you make the change.  Choose life.

The circle of life

 I went to my aunt’s funeral yesterday.

My late mother’s last remaining sister and sibling.

It was very sad.  it affected me far more than I had thought it would

My aunt had lived in the States for all of my life, marrying a GI during the second world war.

Sadly he died but she married again and had one child, my cousin who is like a sister to me.

My aunt wanted to be buried back here in the UK with her other sister and my grandmother and so my cousin shipped her body back.

We’re Jewish and the amount of red tape involved, despite this having been arranged many years ago was incredible.

However it was finally all sorted out and my aunt was laid to rest yesterday right near her mother and sister.

After the actual burial, the Rabbi spoke and it was this that I want to tell you

It’s Passover in a short while and he talked about the plate, the symbolic plate, that we have at our first and second night ‘meals’ (it’s a wonderful get together of friends and family and prayers and songs and fun. 

So the Rabbi spoke about the symbolic plate which has on it amongst other things, an egg, bitter herbs, a sweet paste called charoset (made up of apples, wine, nuts, cinnamon).

He said that the plate was like the circle of life ; the egg symbolising birth and new beginnings, the bitter herbs could be death, or the trials and tribulations, the sadnesses and obstacles we have in our lives, and the charoset is the sweetness of people who visit us in our mourning and bring food and lightness with them.  It’s the laughter, the good times .

And so I wanted to share it with you, those of you who follow me, those of you who read me, to say that life is oh too short and we must live each day, really live it, be who we truly are, love a lot, laugh a lot and most importantly never regret.

We are all born and we all die – whatever comes in the middle is of our own making.

Live in the Now

Enjoy the sunshine

Make time for your kids, your family, your friends, for fun  – no amount of work is worth the missing a child’s first step or word, a joke shared with good friends.

Nobody ever lays on their deathbed wishing they’d worked more

Have wonderful day

Have a wonderful life – and please make each day count

Too early for Resolutions?

I don’t think so

It’s almost the end of November – one month to go and we’re into 2012

And has 2011 brought you all you wished?

Or are you still struggling?

Perhaps this year you lost sight of your goals and you’re still not “in charge of your life” – because as John Lennon said – life is what happens when we’re making other plans

Maybe you’re so busy there’s no balance between work and ‘you’ time

It happens – we get so caught up in the day-to-day stuff, the working hard to fulfil our obligations that we get lost.

We need to regain our joie de vivre, sort out those stress levels and learn what’s really important to us – friends, family, health … to name but three.

They say that 2012 is going to be a year of great change – global change – where our thinking will be moving in the ‘right’ direction; where people will start realising what is important in their lives ……

The change has already started but it’s been a slow process………..

So in order for you to move on and up in your own life I’d like to offer you a day of possibilities, a day when you can meet other women and just ‘be’ .

I am co-hosting Breakthrough to Fabulous,  it promises to be a day for fun and frivolity, a day when you can be yourself, play, learn and even make some new friends

If you want 2012 to be a year to remember for you, a year when you got your life into perspective and really started living, a transformational, wonderful start to the new you

And come along – You’ll be Ever so glad you Did

Are you tired of thinking about dieting?

Are you sick and tired of obsessing about dieting?

Does spending 25 minutes in the morning finding something to wear stress you out?

Do you then end up putting on the ‘only’ thing you feel is ok because you’re running late?

and who needs that at the beginning of the day, right?

Have you got clothes in your wardrobe you can’t fit into?

Do you make excuses not to go out with friends because getting ready is too much stress, too much effort?

Do you shy away from having sex because you can’t bear the thought of someone seeing you naked?

Do you hate what you see in the mirror?

Are you tired of feeling this way?

Maybe you’re not even that big but you’ve spent so long thinking you are it’s kind of taken over your life – although of course you haven’t let on to friends and family about it – I mean they wouldn’t understand would they?   So it’s a ‘secret’ thing of yours.  They know you’re ‘careful’ with what you eat, how often you go to the gym but they don’t know the full story.

When was the last time you felt really good about yourself?

What if there was a way to change those thoughts and feelings?

What if there was a way to finally get out of that despair and onto to the road to a slim, healthy, happy you?

Impossible dream? 

I don’t think so – in fact I know it’s not

After suffering for many years from all of the above I found a way to get out of the dieting spiral, feeling self-conscious, hating my body and yes – learning to love myself – so that the weight came off seemingly effortlessly, without trying.  No diets, no exercise regime.  Just self belief.

I am now passionate about helping other women achieve the same.

You can be the wonderful, amazing, fabulous woman you KNOW deep down is in there.

You can do it

Believe in yourself, change the thought patterns and get on with your life.

 I know, believe me how I know, that it is bloody difficult doing it on your own.  You need someone to be there for you, someone who can share what you’re going through, someone who will keep you accountable, someone who knows what you are capable of and how magnificent you are – even when you don’t believe it yourself.

 I had someone help me – a wonderful woman – who made me see and realise who I was, who I am capable of being.

There is nothing you cannot do – trust me.  Nothing you cannot be once you set your heart and mind to it.

To dream the impossible dream – it’s only im possible if you think it is.

Working together I will teach you ways and give you practical tools that you will be able to use for the rest of your life.  Your wonderful amazing fabulous life.  

You can make it exactly what you want – free from the dieting, the worry, the obsession about how you look. 

Imagine a time when you wake in the morning feeling great and knowing that whatever you wear you will look great.    Your confidence will soar, your energy levels will increase, your relationships will improve. 

They say every journey starts with one step – one little step – and yours is to contact me now

 or why not come to one of my talks, 16th and 22nd November, in Central London – where not only can you find out more about how you can change your life but you can get a free nail and polish worth £22, a goody bag worth £10 AND 10% of all the fabulous treatments at the Beauty Essence salons on the night.

I’ll be honest with you, I wasted so much time, energy, and money on stupid diets, pills, gym memberships, exercise equipment over god knows how many years – I think the worst was the time – all that time when I could have been getting on with enjoying myself,

Youknow it was only when I finally ‘gave up’ and found someone to help me that it changed.

I got to a stage where I thought I cannot do this anymore – I didn’t want to be fat, I didn’t want to be feeling like that 24/7, I wanted to give up worrying about the food I ‘should’ eat, the food I ‘shouldn’t’.  I wanted to stop hating my body, feeling fat, feeling uncomfortable in my clothes – those that did fit.  I wanted to get up in the morning and feel great.  Put on something and feel good in it.  I wanted to have energy.  I wanted to go out with my friends and not feel like I was the ‘fat one’; that I looked as good as them.  That the effort I put into getting ready was worth it.   So one day I woke up and thought ‘I can’t do this anymore’ and like they say “when the student is ready the teacher will appear”.  Mine did.

And I’m yours

My heart goes out to you as I know where you are – what pain you’re in.  Hiding it from friends and family.  I was there too and I so want to help you.

Don’t spend any more time and energy and money on thinking the next diet will do it.

Don’t waste any more time.

I wish I’d found my ‘teacher’ 20 years earlier –

I’m here now

And let’s start your new life TODAY
