Start big or start small?
by Phoebus Apostolidis

Stop thinking about it! Seriously, the key is to start. Somewhere - it doesn't matter where.

At some time, how about now? There is no later - you only got right now! Show up in the thing that you want to start and then once you are started be consistent.

WHY WOULD YOU NEED A COACH?
by Henry Moors

Isn't it just easier to download information from the web? Contrary to what we are told so often, Knowledge is NOT Power. Applied knowledge is power.

And that's where coaches differ from consultants and advisors and counselors.

Coaches and Cormorants
by Henry Moors

A cormorant is a bird that dives for fish underwater. Some Chinese villagers have reared these birds and trained them to 'fish' for them. Rings are put around their necks so they can't swallow the fish they bring back up to the boat.

by Phoebus Apostolidis

Life will unavoidable come with the ups and downs. Nothing in nature is constant, yet many times we have that idea that if everything was just right, the way we want them to be. If that state became stable and then our life was like that from then on.

Life is hard.
by Andreea Rus

When the days are all the same and you don’t feel at peace nowhere. When no one understands your hearth, because you’re not able to understand it neither, life is hard.
When you blame someone else for your unhappiness and when there are many things you could do to improve your life but you do not; When you don’t know what you want, life is hard.

TO DO LIST THAT ‘TALKS’ BACK TO YOU
by Henry Moors

There is a coaching modality that is well ahead of its time, a bit like email was ahead of its time in the mid 90’s. But it quickly became a killer application.

Imagine how more focussed and effective you would be if you could communicate with your coach EVERY DAY, regardless of time zone.

Simulate Your Future Rather Than Rehash Your Past
by Henry Moors

Your mind can be a powerful simulator of the future or a simple recorder of the past.

Why would you use your mind to play your past on autorepeat, when you can use it to plan your future in vivid detail? Replaying your past can be extremely depressing.

Why Mindful Eating Didn't Help You Stop Binge Eating
by Helen Wong

You’ve probably heard of mindful eating...
But if your goal is to stop binge eating and to lose weight, it likely won’t do very much for you!

Think about it this way:

-Eating likely only takes up 1-2 hours of your day

-We are awake for roughly 16 hours (if you’re one of the lucky ones that get a full 8-hour sleep)

-So the time you spend eating is like less than an eighth of your total time awake

In the mini training in the link below, I explain why I believe living mindfully is more important and more useful than just mindful eating.

Nighttime Eating Challenge
by Helen Wong

????"I'll lose control and binge if I give myself the permission to eat all foods!"?????
That's one of the most common reasons people have resistance towards stopping dieting, even though they now know how dieting causes the stress response and the stress response causes binge eating/overeating.

Why Dieting doesn't work--Dieting is stress on the body
by Helen Wong

“I don’t get it. Diet companies show such amazing before and after photos—and yet I’m here stressing over everything I put in my mouth and the scale isn’t even moving. AND even if I look at a cookie, I won’t even be able to zip up my jeans anymore”

Am I right or am I right?

Stats:
-Around 60% of dieters regain their weight back within 6 months of finishing a diet
-More than 83% regain their weight back or more within 2 years
-More than 95% of dieters regain all their weight or more within 5 years
-Over 50% of dieter weigh 11 lbs or more compared to their starting weight
-People who diet are 8 times more likely to develop an eating disorder

So why do diet companies have such “amazing” results to show?
-Because most of them only do follow-ups of up to 3 months!
-Many companies use self-reported weight stats by using a weight tracker site, by phone or email (people who've gained aren't really gonna report that, are they?)
-The follow-up rates are low—80% of companies have follow-up rates of lower than 50%.

How did you keep yourself entertain in lock down?
by Rowan Armstrong

What activities did you find to take part in while in your home during the lock down. What did you enjoy. The Zoom boom showed us that people need to reach out and communicate with each other. A friends of mine started to chat with some of their friends that had moved couple of years ago to Australia.

Confidence
by Maria Lunt

In order to earn trust as a business professional, confidence is key. Research shows that confidence has a stronger link to success than competence. Self-confidence is a belief that you can accomplish what you set out to do in your current role with your skills, experience and creative problem solving.

The art of influence during presentations
by Maria Lunt

In order to influence your audience, your presentation needs to represent a clear story about your product/service or proposal. When information is presented into a story, our brains understand the information associated with the feelings we had while listening to the story.

Why you should consider having a life coach
by Claire Mackenzie

I wish I’d known about the benefits of coaching sooner. I remember a time about 15 years when I was in a broken relationship and struggling. As quickly as we had bought a house, acquired two cats and meshed our lives and friends together, we were signing legal documents and unpicking our joined at the hip world.
