What is the cost of Fear

Many people have goals (whether or not they call them goals), thing they want to achieve in their life for example relationships, work, family or business.

A huge proportion of those people will not achieve their goals for many reasons, maybe their situation changes, perhaps the goal is not right for them … or there are surmountable obstacles in the way that stop people in their tracks.

So why do people not achieve their goal if the obstacle can be overcome?  Well sometimes the goal is not right for them and they know it – or the fear of achieving their goal itself can be scary.

Whatever your fear it will be costing you something – whether it be physically or emotionally or financially.  What is it that you are in fear of right now that is holding you back?  Come up with at least 20 things that it is costing you and what are the hidden benefits of having the fear.

For example

  1. Losing a significant amount of weight and becoming more attractive to others can be scary for some people with low self esteem.
  2. Moving on after a relationship – starting to date again, worrying that the next relationship will end for similar reasons, e.g. cheating, violence, debts etc
  3. Working in a job that makes you unhappy – but worried to leave incase you don’t get another job – or fear of taking another job and it not working out.
  4. Business – setting up on your own and finding that you can’t get clients or sell your products

There are many situations where fear can hold us back but what can we do about it? Firstly acknowledge the fear then take action – books, coaching groups and 1:1 coaching are all great methods that can help you overcome your fears and help you move forward in life and in business.

My tips is:

  • Acknowledge the Fear – what exactly are you scared of
  • Rate it 1-10 (10 being really scary)
  • How ‘real’ is the fear?
  • Explore ways you can overcome the fear
  • Take Action
  • Celebrate you Success at overcoming your Fear.

As you overcome your fears you will find your confidence levels increase – so which of your fears will you work on first – and why?

There are some great books on overing coming fear and self doubt.  Susan Jeffers book ‘Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway’ is our Personal Development Book Club title this month  (If you are interested – contact us or book your place on Eventbrite)

We also run regular workshops to help you deal with ‘Fear and Self Doubt’ – see Eventbrite for the upcoming sessions.

Why Would You Want To Use A Personal Coach?

Why use a Personal Coach? There are many personal coaches (aka Life coaches) around the world, you can get amazing results through working with a Personal Coach.  Here is a short article on Personal Coaching and situations that clients will come to Personal Coaches for.

Do you ever feel that:

* Your life is out of your control?
* You are not where you could be or want to be?
* You don’t really receive the recognition you deserve?
* You don’t feel safe and secure in your relationships?
* You are often overlooked and undermined?
* You have strong desire but lack belief in your ability or the future?
* You are working harder but can’t seem to make any progress?
* You are frustrated because you can’t seem to break through the barriers in your life
* You are settling for less because it is still better than what other people have?

Do you ever wish that:

* You could have more confidence to do the things you really want to?
* You had more self esteem to stand up for what you believe in?
* You could command respect from your colleagues?
* You could impress others when they meet you?
* You could communicate your ideas with ease?
* You could stand up and speak in public?

What if you could do the above and:

* Eliminate Stress, Fear and Anxiety?
* Reclaim your Health by losing weight, quitting smoking, or dealing with other addictions?
* Improve all of your Relationships?
* Develop your Confidence and Self Esteem?
* Have more control over your life?
* Understand why people see you the way they do?
* Learn how to avoid these problems in the future?

Would you be willing to take the action necessary to bring about these outcomes? Is it just a wish you have, or is it a real desire to change? Have you ever thought “I deserve the best I can get in life and will do whatever it takes to get the best” If you are ready to give yourself the best in life, then please read contact us.

By the way the basic componants of behaviour are:

Be(behaviour)= Feel+Wish+Do

Each of us has a differing capacity of each, some prefer The Feelings (emotions) , some perfer Doing ( action) and other the Wishing( thoughts) , each has a profound cost and pay off. It also determines how you show up in life! And the capacity with which you live it fully,completely without limits. Only to figure that most of the programming to your behaviour happened at an unconcious level before your were even aware it existed. The turth of the matter is, by becoming aware of it you can then do something about it, and one of the best ways is with your Personal Success Coach.

As a Personal Success Coach I can work closely with you as you work on your goals, working with a coach will enable you to reach your goals quicker than should you have worked alone.

How To Find The Best Life Coach

How To Find The Best Life Coach

How To Find The Best Life Coach

Life coaching or mentoring is a booming industry and it is one which we associate with this last decade. Before then these titles were not ones which were bandied about as part of everyday conversation. Rather, we would refer to having a mentor in what would be considered almost exclusive circumstances; you would have a mentor in University or perhaps a mentor at work. Few people would refer to having a mentor in more personal circumstances.

It is good to see the explosion of popularity within this industry. What is more important to you – your business or your personal life? Why would you have a mentor at work and yet no mentor when you are dealing with more personal issues?

In the UK, life coaching and mentoring programs would seem to have caught on just as rapidly as in the USA which is something that I personally find quite interesting. For years now, residents in the USA have been familiar with various forms of counseling and therapy
and these are seen as both positive and the norm. In the UK, however, many people secretly shiver at the very thought of needing to see a counselor.

Why has there been this change in attitude in the UK? Why are people more open to life coaching and mentoring than to counseling or various other forms of therapy? The answer I think lies in the way in which these programs are presented. Life coaching and mentoring are promoted as “life enhancement programs” as opposed to counseling or therapy which are thought of more as ways in which to fix something which is wrong; and who wants to think that they have something wrong, especially when it comes to their mind?

The fact is that the way in which something is advertised to us or presented to us can totally change the way in which we perceive it. The color of the advertisement or the shapes or pictures used impact upon us greatly. The simple act of altering one word in an advertisement can have the effect of changing a sales ratio by 80%. That may seem outrageous to you, but it is true; it is fact. I think that the use of a different title lies at the heart of why life coaching and mentoring is found to be more popular and acceptable than various other forms of “therapy”.

When you look deeper than just the titles, one can see that a therapist’s job (irrespective of their “title”), is to help their client to adjust their thinking and behavior to enable them to best achieve their goals. The client on the other hand will tend to seek out the therapist/therapy/life coach/mentor who has been presented to them as the most appealing, be that on the basis of something which they have read or seen on TV, heard on the radio or had recommended to them by a friend.

What is very clear is that there are many of us who feel in need of help or guidance. As children we learnt many things by being shown or copying. We are good at learning in this way; we are accustomed to it. And so perhaps a further appeal of the words “mentor” or “life coach” is that we are in fact looking for someone else to tell us what to do, instead of looking for a way in which to work things out for ourselves. In reality however, it is you who is living your life, and the best way in which to really learn and grow is to find things out for yourself.

Please don’t misunderstand me. I am not saying that we do not need guidance. Guidance is a great asset. But no therapist/mentor/life coach can “do it” for you; they can only ever guide you, no matter what their title is.

I’m going to recommend something here which I think is a great place in which to start. But first I want you to know that my opinion is completely biased – I am a hypnotherapist and I do sell hypnosis mp3 downloads. So, I’m recommending hypnosis downloads as one of the best forms of life coach or mentor which you can find.

I am really passionate about what hypnosis can do to change your life. Not only that, hypnosis downloads are available instantly, and they are inexpensive. Even if you feel you want to seek a 1 to 1 appointment with somebody, a hypnosis download is a great place to begin and to open your mind to possibilities before you start searching to find the right “therapist” or coach.

Hypnosis is a state of relaxation which allows you to take a step back and see things more clearly. In hypnosis you have easy access to your subconscious mind which is the part where instinctive patterns of thought and behavior are stored; hypnosis therefore makes it easier to change these types of deep rooted patterns which may have been holding you back. With hypnosis not only can you find it easy to stop doing the things which you no longer want to do, you can sow the seeds for successful strategies in an environment which will nurture them and allow them to grow more quickly and with more strength.

Hypnosis downloads are a very powerful and effective life coach. I just hope that I have presented this option to you in a way which you find to be appealing.

Have You Let Yourself Go?

Have You Let Yourself Go?

We all have those days when things dont seem to be going right, sometimes when we are unsure what to do next something catches our eye, this could be a comment made by another person, something on TV or an article in the press.  How often do we see recommendations on TV for a good book, a good recipe, or a motivational new film. 

Oprah is known for her recommendations especially when you need a swift kick up the bum – when you need someone telling it like it is, pulling no punches.  Many people turn to Oprah for weight loss advice and inspiration, tips on what to wear, hairstyles and makeup. In the UK a great lifestyle TV show covering these these topics and generally featuring ‘real’ people is ‘This Morning’ on ITV. 

How many of us would admit to having let ourselves go at some stage in our lives?  Many of us have a variety of life stories to tell, from abuse and weight gain to broken relationships and significant life changes that brought them to a point, they say, of losing themselves and letting themselves go.

The reason why TV shows like Oprah and This Morning are so great is that viewers know exactly how the show guests feel, and share similar stories of putting others first, feeling depressed, gaining weight and feeling hopeless and helpless to put things right  We look to those for inspiration, perhaps the way the featured guest deal with a situation would help us deal with ours, or motivate us to take action on something that has been wearing us down for a while, for example; take action to lose weight, reduce alcohol intake, end a failing relationship, combat fears and phobias …

Have you ever watched one of those TV shows and thought to yourself “I feel like I have let knowing who I am go”,  “Why am I putting up with this situation?”,  and I don’t want to settle for just anything. I want to get back on track. I need help and I dont know where to start” ”

Life Coaching could be the answer, as your coach I will not dwell on your problems but work with you to find strategies and solutions to move you forward, decide what you want to happen and how you will go about it, then working with you regularly (weekly / fortnightly).  I will work with you on your journey as I do with all my clients as you pick yourselves up, brush yourselves off, and get on with creating your new life.

Coaching sessions generally take place over the telephone, Skype or MSN at a time mutually convenient to both of us.  Payments for sessions are paid through PayPal in advance of the session.  In addition to one-to-one coaching I also offer an Online Personal Coaching Program and a selection of Ebooks that may be of interest to you.


To make a start today grab yourself a pen and paper. 

At the top of the page write “Who am I?” and write down at least 20 answers.

On the next page write “What do I REALLY want” and again write at least 20 answers.

Well done, you have made a start, let me know how you get on.

Life Coaching Courses For Your Career And Confidence

Not all souls have large amounts of confidence and many of them don’t know the importance of it. Personal confidence coaching makes you secure in terms of your personal confidence and well being.

It gets you stronger with relationships, with your partner as an example. It is the one that makes you prosper for the formation of yourself, the expansion of your job, or the one that makes your life pleasant.

So if you want to gain felicity, self esteem and confidence, it best to begin forefend thoughts that are bitter and act as you should. You must be pleased with who you are and love yourself.

Focus on your ability and not your weaknesses. You must know the origin of the troubles you’re having with yourself to be capable to know what you can really do.

Have you ever thought of the lifetime that you’ll be having in the future? Rather than simply trusting your imaginativeness that can inevitably be changed or be gone any time, drawing or writing your plans for yourself can be to a greater extent assuring. You can focus on what you hold, you have just drawn or written – whether it consists of making a family unit of your own or getting the business that you had perpetually dreamed of.

You, must have felt physical or emotional hurt that have nearly made your world to stop turning. This might have been produced by your former better half, friends, oppositions or even yourself. You can never find happiness without burying those tough memories, so begin moving on. The beginning stride in moving on for the life you desire is to pioneer a plan. Live each day by agreeing with the values and esteem yourself once more to gain self-assurance and peace.

Life coaching can assist you with all the measures that are written above. A life coaching expert can give you a vast amount of assistance with personal career coaching and confidence coaching. You’ll be guided with the recognition of your negative views and behaviours that play a key role in your awkwardness in matureness and personal growth. Those negative views will be gradually resolved, for you to be fit to find the real you that’s been hiding all along. Your life will be adjusted along with your habits and values.
