Goal setting and vision boarding is one of those techniques that you completely embrace for the upcoming periods. I love visions boards, I adore them but sometimes equally roll my eyes when I this practice. In this blogpost we will cover why visions boards are great, the application of vision boards, how vision can be misleading and the missing ingredient.
In our brains, across the brainstem, is something we call the reticular activating system or RAS for short. Its main function is regulating arousal and sleep-wake transitions. However, the ascending projections of the RAS facilitate the conscious perception of sensory stimuli. Meaning that when it comes to vision boards, this translates to sifting criteria in your RAS, and the perceived need to see and even respond to sensory stimuli.
When we put something on our vision boards, it goes into the RAS which acts like a sift. A good example of this sifting process is...
When it comes to the topic of making money easily, I frequently encounter in my work that clients subconsciously do not want to do it. Your mind is the driver even when you don’t think when it’s in the driver’s seat. Why do we want to make it really hard for people to pay us? You think ‘’of course I want to make money easily Laura.’’
We can self-sabotage when it comes to making money easily. We can make it really hard for people to pay us. So this blog post is about your subconscious mind with some conscious mind tips and tricks you can do to have some instant gratification now on implementing if you want to.
If you come from a long family line of hard workers, you might have an ancestral narrative that says that you need to be a hard worker too. Which turns into the belief that you need to work hard to earn money. And if you haven’t done enough hard work you...
If we haven’t met before, my name is Laura Payne-Stanley I’m a professional speaker for businesses and organisations, and I’ve been a TEDx Speaker too…… and I’m also an introvert.
Which makes me very qualified to talk about this topic of how to be visible online as an introvert, and well indeed how to be visible anywhere as an introvert.
When I talk about introversion, and being an introvert, people are often shocked.
But you do:
And yes that is all true, but I am an introvert to my core.
How do I know?
Let me explain about introversion; two people go to an event, for the introvert, they experience it as the battery draining down the more they are around people.
For an extrovert, at the same event the battery is being charged when they are around people.
This is really just a metaphor for what is happening at a neurobiological level with introverts and extroverts, and literally...
The word legacy can be triggering for some and especially today in this post as we are discussing the topic of how to ‘Leave a Legacy’ as a childless person, especially when childless not by choice.
I know this can be a terribly difficult topic for those who are part of the community of childless not by choice and those who know people who are, and don't know what to say.
I have spoken about this before but to recap my own personal story about legacy and bloodline.
You haven’t missed here on the blog, on social or in newsletters; me talking about kids, as my husband and I, aka Mr P don’t have our family yet and it wasn’t by choice.
Ours has been a 13 year journey so far. Without it becoming a 13 year soap opera, there have been many procedures, many avenues investigated. There have been heartbeats seen and hearts broken when lost. There are more stars in the sky during our 13 year journey. And the journey has been over...

Welcome to Finishing 2021 strong in business or crawling to the finish line.
Let’s dive in and ask the question – are you finishing the year strong or feeling like you are crawling to the finish line?
Or let’s do a quick reframe of the question – do you want to have an amazing 2022 or if you are reading this in the future, do you want to have an amazing next year?
I used to swim as a kid. When I say swim, I trained 3 times a week and had my first ever coach.
I’ll never forget the wisdom that he taught me. You see I wasn’t and am not your typical swimmer. I’m only just 5.5. now, and as a kid of about 13, I was 5 ft nothing.
I’m a curvy vixen and have been that way since I hit my teens.
So when I used to go to swimming competitions, when the swimmers are on the blocks, you look up and down to check out who else is competition. And I didn’t look like competition.
And that’s ok. But I knew....
It’s time to talk about instant gratification and the impact this is having on those who are seeking to create a legacy.
You may or may not know this about me, but in case you don’t, I love an underdog and especially the underdog when it comes to property.
My husband Mr P and I, are on our second full property renovation which is now completed, the home is sold and we are looking for what is our next project.
When you are looking at a property to renovate, it’s as much about unburdening yourself of your ego and your limitations and seeing the beauty of the masterpiece property within.
And when looking at property to renovate I get nervous, because it isn’t about the sale or profit. It’s about creating something that could have a lasting impact on future families who give the home a new soul and memories.
Because of this when I look at a property, fear is always with me.
Fear if can we create the vision that I see in my mind.
The fear of...
When it comes to reading the words “perfectionist fantasies” my long experience has shown me that 2 responses normally happen.
The nod, that somewhere in your stomach you know that this is something for you. Or the “I’m curious” but it doesn’t land with you straight away.
So what are perfectionist fantasies?
Before we dive in here, let’s go back a stage to what is the problem with having perfectionist fantasies? As such a perfectionist fantasy is a longed-for illusion that can keep you stuck in a negative benefit frustration cycle.
You believe that it is only your illusory perfect self who can accomplish goals, once perfection has been achieved.
Or you believe that only the perfect launch, perfect messaging, perfect USP, perfect copy, perfect audience build, perfect audience identification, perfect need qualify.. will lead to the results that you crave.
I have also seen this emerge with corporate clients and leadership...

The areas to focus on when starting your NLP Coaching Practice include:
