LIFE On Purpose
Have you ever felt that your life had become irrelevant? I have.
No-one sets out wanting to become so small, and hiding in the shadows, but my husband's career took an upward trajectory when he turned 26 that lasted twenty years. And the truth is I felt a failure next to that kind of success.
“If your life were a movie, and you were the director, how would you want the film to go from this day forward?”

"Age does not guarantee wisdom, but it certainly demands it."
Do you know what the one thing is that will help you live your best life?
Health & fitness
I know it's easy to look at Personal Trainers and Health Coaches, perhaps even me, and think we have the secret formula that somehow you missed. But, if you were to look at the playback of my life, you'd learn that I'm just like everyone else, I've struggled with being a healthy weight and felt too guilty to spend money on the gym membership I desperately needed because our finances were tight. I used to numb painful emotions with food, wine, coffee and a regular trip to Dunkin Doughnuts because I didn't know anything different.
Here's what I've learned…
“Is there a simple way to know if my workout is making me fitter and how do I know it’s not causing me harm?”
We’ve all been there, working out but not sure if we are making significant progress and beginning to wonder if the exercises itself if causing that niggle, we keep trying to ignore.
Not every workout works for everyone, but for our long-term health it’s vital that we don’t stop exercising all together…
Ask a room full of people how many here want to live a long healthy life and everyone will put up their hand, including you, right?
I recently discovered the shocking truth about life expectancy that you need to hear.
The reality is that in New Zealand, there is a massive gap between life span and health span. Let me explain that a little more…

I’m going to share my absolute top tip for achieving excellent communication. This communication trick can be hugely important not just in personal relationships, but sometimes when you have to go into a situation where the person you're speaking with is in a position of authority. It could be a boss, or here's the example that I'm going to use today. It could be the Doctor. To get the outcome that you want, which, of course, is the point of communication, then having excellent communication techniques can help us get on the same page as someone else.
In the past, people believed that our essential qualities, like intelligence or talent, where traits fixed at birth. And consequently, many spent their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. Falsely believing that talent alone creates success -without effort. Until, a Stanford University Psychologist and Researcher, Carol Dweck came along and proved that they were wrong.
Since childhood HOPE, always hunting for the excellent up ahead, has always been part of my life.
That said, I remember a season when things took an altogether darker turn. I found myself a prisoner of a toxic relationship that left me feeling life was hopeless. It happened gradually, and I didn't notice until one day I found myself utterly stuck and helpless. As if, there was no way to get me out of the situation and live a happy life.
An example of giving someone the benefit of the doubt. That will inspire you.
One trick that will change your view on creating success.
