Resolving dilemmas by changing your way of looking
by Dave Bevan

I’m going to describe a scenario that I imagine, with minor adjustments, will be familiar to more or less everyone. Let’s say that you have promised a family member that you will spend the weekend with them, even though you are pretty sure that it will be no fun at all.

How to use traumatic experience to change your life for better?
by Wioleta Wydrych

How to use traumatic memory to change your life for better?

Sometimes it’s worth to have a look into the past, not to dwell on the past, but to use the past experiences to realize what we can change, how we can find motivation, how we can help others.

Are you a perfectionist?
by Wioleta Wydrych

Are you a perfectionist?

Are you smiling now, thinking “Yes, I am a perfectionist”.
I was the same. This was my perfect answer when I was asked on the job interviews “What are your disadvantages? I would always say “perfectionism”, giggling inside, feeling proud of myself, because this means I will do my work the best I can.

Are the cigarettes stronger than you?
by Wioleta Wydrych

Are the cigarettes stronger than you?

My friends used to say "if you will ever quit smoking everyone will be able to do it" and they didn’t believe that this may happen. I didn’t.

I started smoking 17 years ago and I was using every spare minute to have a cig.

Coaching in a future of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
by Steve Paul

It seems to me that the growth in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will drive up the need for coaching. In particular coaching around the soft skills of empathy and caring.

As Machine Learning and the growth in big data become ever more applied to the everyday, it's increasingly the case that people can, and do, get lazy about remembering and giving.

Spend more Time planning your two-week holiday then planning your life?
by Michelle Mottley

Now could be the time to turn that around and plan for some of the things you would like to do with your time as well as opposed to letting life happen to you. It doesn't have to be a grand fifteen year plan in triplicate cross-referenced and signed by a High Court judge.

Do you need life Coaching? Feeling stuck? Want a change?
by Naresh Mall

Life Coaching appears to be springing up everywhere. But how's coaching difffernt from counselling and psychotherapy? Counselling and therapy are more deeper explorations of problems and difficulties that people have that have having pathological consequences to their thinking, emotions and behaviour.

Coach Bridget Morris

Why do I need a Life Coach?
by Bridget Morris

People sometimes say to me that they don't need a Life Coach but can manage their lives and reaching for their goals without this support. Despite this, in my experience and from what I hear, people progress to achieving the things that they want in life much more quickly and easily when they have regular supportive input from a coach.

I Am You
by Serene Martin

So much of pain exists in this world because of the sense of separation we feel between us and everything else. This one was written to inspire us to feel connected .

I am the taste of coffee on your tongue and the glass which holds it against your lips
I am the rage of the storm and the calm of its eye
I am the blade of the knife and the energy with which it cuts
I am the wetness of raindrops and the burn of cigars
I am the green of the grass and the transparency of air
I am the curve of your smile and the depth of your remorse
I am your friend and the friend of your enemy
I am what I am and I am you.

To Multi-task or Not? That is the Question!
by Christina Michelle

We all have the power to control our circumstances & environment, at least to some extent... Use your power to create a better way to do something.

One month after attending a workshop by Management Consultant Janine McDonald, I decided to test the theory that multi-tasking is in fact NOT the most effective way to accomplish several things in a short period of time.

Because We Can Change
by Serene Martin

This goes out to everyone I love. Because we can change….

When I stopped believing in luck, I was no longer a victim of circumstance

When I started looking for ways to celebrate each day no matter what happened, I was no longer trapped in my past memories

When I tried to transform the anger and fear I carried in my heart to acceptance and love, I began to breathe more easily

When I chose to eat clean, my body began to heal itself

When I followed my heart, making the right decisions came easily to me

When I accepted that everyone is on their own path no matter how much I may disagree with them, my own path lit up more clearly for me beneath my feet

When I gave up dwelling on things I could not change, more things started changing for me

When I chose to believe that all the right resources will show up for me when I needed them, they did

When I released the things that I no longer needed in life, I gained the experiences that I desired instead

When I believed with all my heart that the same force of life, which breathed life into me, was on my side, it empowered and protected me wherever I went.

Edge of the Cliff
by Serene Martin

There will come a time when we will need to step over the edge of the cliff of certainty

Where we feel we have extinguished all resources we have grown to rely upon in our spirits

We must believe one of two things will happen:

Angels we never knew we had will catch our fall

Or we will learn to fly

If you really love yourself, dream big.
by Serene Martin

"I prefer to be a dreamer among the humblest, with visions to be realised, than lord among those without dreams and desires."

-Kahlil Gibran-

Throughout my life I have certainly done things I have enjoyed doing most of the time (thank god for that).

How To Get Confidence (Cool test inside)
by Omir Dzelilovic

I have a question for you:

If you flip a coin 10 times and it turns heads for 9 times, what is the chance of it turning heads on the 11th throw?

The answer is 50%, because the coin only has two sides, and it doesn't matter how many times it turned heads.
