A very special guest

On this show I talk to someone very special indeed! One of our listeners has agreed to take a huge step outside her comfort zone and speak with me about the podcast, personal development and her own experience.

Preparing for your own “Miracle on the Hudson River”

If you’re a follower of mainstream news, you undoubtably watched and read about the recent event in New York where US Airways Flight 1549 made an emergency landing on the water. It was an incredible situation — described by some as one of the most extraordinary accidents in the history of aviation — where all crew and passengers survived.

What lessons can we take from this extreme episode? Continue reading

Things you know you should be doing.. but aren’t!

Crazy I know, but we all do it! At times we find ourselves fighting  something that we already have the answer to, but for some reason we just aren’t putting that in to ACTION!

Paul and Sam face some home truths and admit their failings and what they are going to do to turn things around.

In this podcast we ask the question…..

What is it that you know you should be doing but for one reason or another, you just aren’t doing it!?

We’d really love to hear from you so why not post a comment below and tell us what that thing is! If you are really brave you can tell us what you are going to do about it.

Make 2009 Your Best Year Ever

Well, you made it. You made it through one more year. 2008 has come and gone and if you’re like most people these days, it probably went much much faster than you anticipated. In fact, the last two, three or five years probably went by much faster than you not only anticipated, but also wanted. Hmmm….how about the last nine years? Do you remember celebrating the dawn of the New Millenium? That was nine full years ago…hmmm..time flies doesn’t it?!

So here’s a thought….what would you do differently if you new that this year will also fly by faster than you thought, faster than you want? How long would you put off doing what you want to do? Continue reading

Spring into the New Year!

Give yourself the best start for 2009,

by following these 5 simple steps:

  1. De-clutter your home and your work environment.
    Clear surfaces and floors. Give all the clothes you haven’t worn the past year to charity. Throw out old newspapers and magazines.  You’ll feel more energized and be able to think more clearly in a clean, clear space!
  2. Spring into action.
    Start a realistic and achievable exercise programme. Get off the bus one stop earlier. Walk the children to school.  Swim, gym, pilates and yoga are all wonderful body toners. And you’ll be releasing those feel-good endorphins too!
  3. Spring clean your mind.
    Identify one area of your life that’s crying out for change. Make a list of short-, medium- and long-term goals. Then take regular, small steps towards achieving them. Your confidence levels will soar. And you’ll be moving to a brighter future.
  4. Reward yourself.
    Remember to always acknowledge your achievements, big and small. Giving yourself a regular pat on the back will help motivate you. From new make-up, or a facial, to a girls’ night out. Be your own cheerleader!
  5. Get a life coach.
    If you’re ripe for change, want to achieve your goals, and just need a guiding hand to get there, life coaching is the perfect springboard. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve in just a few sessions.
