The Power of Positive Thought #positivity #personaldevelopment

The Power of Positive Thought

I’ve written about positivity many times before, and I continue to believe wholeheartedly in the benefits of positive thought. We’ve all experienced those days when we’ve slept through the alarm, laddered our tights, and hit every red light on the way to work. It’s as though that single panicked moment in time when we realise it’s 7.23am and we need to leave the house at 7.30am was the catalyst to a bad day.

I’ve learned so much from my teachers that I love to pass on to my readers in a way that they can relate to. Even though I call myself a spiritual person, I don’t wear a floaty kaftan or bells on my fingers. You’ll only find me running through a meadow of tall grass with flowers in my hair if there’s an ice-cream van at the other side! Read more

Step into Success with this Easy Exercise #selfhelp #success

Step into Success with this Easy Exercise.

SuccessSuccess is an odd word because for some it conjures up the corporate business world, or highly toned athletes competing for that gold medal. It’s a shiny word batted around the entrepreneur internet sites, and is often discussed at length during a Ted talk. But what does success mean to you?

For me, success is remembering all the items on my shopping list and not forgetting to feed the fish! Okay, I’ll admit, I do feel the stirrings of accomplishment when I release a book and it receives positive feedback, but I believe that any victory can be those huge achievements as well as the small wins.
