Assumptions – the sure-fire way to sabotage your confidence.

“Never assume, for it makes an ASS out of U and ME.” – Anon. For reasons which are not worth going into right now, my back garden lawn is currently massively overgrown, the tallest bits of grass reaching 3 feet (or 1 meter, depending upon your measurement unit of choice!).  Finally I decided it was…

The key to empowerment.

I have found that empowerment in life is about simply looking at what is happening for you instead of what is happening to you. – Anon. When my job was made redundant and I found myself out of work with only 3 days notice of it happening, it would have been very easy to react…

Create Your Way

How often in life do we hit a metaphorical brick wall, look for a way round, fail to find it and then simply give up? What if, instead of just giving up because we could not find a way, we set out to make our own way?

Do You REALLY Know What You Want To Do?

And for them it may well be effortless (although it is also entirely possible that they are making considerable conscious mental effort, they just do it with such precision and style as to make it appear effortless thanks to all the practice and dedication they put in), but it wasn’t always that way. Even the best musicians on the planet were unable to pick their way through Twinkle Twinkle Little Star without hitting more wrong notes than a drunken karaoke “singer” at first.
