How To Create a More Fulfilling FutureIf you’ve missed any of the posts over the course of this series then don’t panic – you can catch up by clicking the links at the bottom of this post. Next week we will be summarising all our questions and answers, but for today, I want you to concentrate on dreaming BIG.

As always, you might want to gather your answers together in a personal workbook. Don’t think too hard about each question, just go with the first thing that pops into your head.

If you have been following the entire series, then you’ll hopefully have a fully rounded picture of your life, goals, and aspirations so far. You should have found yourself thinking quite seriously about certain aspects of your life – this is good!

Grab your notebook, your journal, or open a new word document and record your answers so you can refer to them when needed. Today, I want you to think about what you would like to have, be, or do in your life:

Questions for week #9:

  1. Which countries would you like to visit?
  1. What is your ideal job?
  2. What activities/hobbies would you like to try?
  3. If money was no issue, what would you like to do most with your life?

Join me next Monday for an overview of this series and what you can do next with all the answers you’ve collected.

Your responses can be as private or as public as you choose. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments below. If you’d rather not, then simply share how you find the selection of questions, if you can answer them easily or if you struggled, and what you have chosen to do with the answers that came up for you if anything.

How To Create a More Fulfilling Future – Blog Series

NEW BLOG SERIES: How to create a more fulfilling future.

How To Create a More Fulfilling FutureWith the launch of my new book, How I Motivated Myself to Succeed, on the horizon, I thought it was the perfect time to begin my new blog series: Creating a more fulfilling future.

I’m a great believer in being in control of your own destiny, and so I include various exercises in the book to help my readers sort through their thoughts. I wanted to include a series of thought-provoking questions here on my blog to complement the book.

Don’t think too hard about each question, just go with the first thing that pops into your head. Some questions will amuse you, others will test your boundaries, but all of them will bring about a sense of fulfilment that you can carry forward.

Every Monday, for the next ten weeks, I will post additional questions for you to answer. You might want to gather them all together like a personal workbook, or just pop in and out to answer the questions that appeal to you.

Each week I’ll share the link to the previous questions so you can collect them as you go and don’t have to worry if you miss a week. They may seem random in their order, but if you do choose to follow the entire series, then you’ll hopefully get a fully rounded picture of your life, goals, and aspirations for a fulfilling future.

Grab a notebook, your journal, or open a new word document and record your answers so you can refer to them when needed.

Questions for week #1:

  1. What would you do if you were brave enough?
  2. What have you done that you never thought you would/could?
  3. Describe a spontaneous action that led to something incredible.
  4. What challenges are you ready to face?

Join me next Monday for more questions.

As always, your responses can be as private or as public as you choose. Feel free to leave your answers in the comments below. If you’d rather not, then simply share how you find the selection of questions, if you can answer them easily or if you struggled, and what you have chosen to do with the answers that came up for you if anything.

What Would You Tell Your 16 Year Old Self?

What Would You Tell Your 16 Year Old Self_It’s GCSE Results day here in the UK and I’m hours away from finding out if my middle son has smashed it or followed in his mum’s footsteps!!

I remember when my eldest son collected his exam results a few years ago (he did incredibly well – much better than his mother!). As I sat in my car outside the school gates, waiting for him to come out, I felt physically sick.  I was transported back to my own results day and I experienced all the same sensations I had back then; sweaty palms, butterflies and headache.

I’m here again and I’ve already started preparing my best scenario speeches.  The ‘OMG A’s I’m so proud of you,’ and the ‘let’s draw a line and take a moment to think through our next step.’ Read more

How Planning and Organisational Skills are a Vital Tool in our Lives

How to Plan and Stay OrganisedWhen working with my female clients, I always made sure to maintain direct eye contact. I found it interesting how varied eye contact could be from client to client, but by keeping my own gaze level and my posture upright, it often calmed my ladies enough to get them to open up about any physical or emotional issues they wanted to work on during our therapy sessions.

I’ve attended numerous workshops and training sessions over the years where I’ve had to correct myself when I realised I had crossed my arms and/or legs. Notably, it was often when the topic was a difficult one to cope with. Folding in on myself was something I started to do long before I left my abusive marriage. Over time, I’ve learned how to open up my body language and slow my speech, although this is still a work in progress. By being responsive to the lessons all around me, I maintain my interest in the people I meet and the subjects I learn and teach. Read more
