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...
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...
Does this sound familiar to you.
You've recently gone on a date. And then in the first half an hour, you run through what both of you do for a living, which is of course a completely reasonable question.
You may try and dial down exactly that success that you currently have, so you do not seem too overwhelming. However, your date seems immediately suppressed and changes their energy as soon as you told them of your success.
Maybe a little too impressed in fact. You were getting the feeling that your success, that your money, that your status was more of an attraction than you were?
You may have had a feeling at an instinct or gut level. That you thought this person was more interested in your success than you if you had no success.
Of course, you're proud of your success. And you want to share it with the love of your life.
So how do you figure out if your date or the person you're currently interested in is interested in you, or if they are after your money?
You want a better quality of life, and you want to see results quickly. So why would a dentist need a life coach?
The simple answer is to not just love your practice again but also love your life again.
This involves everything from leading your team to doing the technical parts of dentistry that you have been trained to do, to make more money.
And for you to be a business owner who loves owning a dental practice.
Let me ask you...
While we may be coming to the end of pandemic and lockdown restrictions changing, many dentists have reported increased levels of anxiety, loneliness, panic, wanting to leave or just simply wondering; why are they a dentist in the first place?
Through my work with high-level entrepreneurs, including dentists, I've noticed several patterns:
What is sex in a long term relationship supposed to look like? How often are most people doing it?
Chances are if you are asking this question for either you or your partner, you’re probably encountering some issues in the bedroom department.
A universal truth is that most sex-education in the UK comes from the very limited sex-ed classes in school, behind the bike-shed conversations or from porn.
The first option of sexual education classes in school is not led from a standpoint of how to have great sex, but rather the mechanics of pregnancy.
Then option 2 and 3 of peer conversations and porn, feed into each other of setting unrealistic expectations around intimacy and sex. You may be reading this article as you found it on Google, after searching for advice because the frequency of the sex in your relationship has decreased, it just feels boring or you are on auto-pilot and doing it because of the fun associated.
As a businesswoman for over a decade, I have seen and experienced first-hand the struggles that women have when pursuing their goals, especially when they don’t focus on the inner work of being an entrepreneur. I have the honour of working with entrepreneurs from all stages of new startups to executive women planning their exit strategy, to floral designers in residence at a top London Hotel.
The Inner Job of Being
For many years hypnosis was seen as something for woo-woo hippy types or as a trick that was done on stage where people danced around like a chicken. However today, hypnosis has turned into a staple for many entrepreneurs and executives from everything to dealing with stress, building confidence to working through long-held limiting beliefs since childhood.
I focus on a mix of hypnotherapy and coaching to maximizing women’s effectiveness in business or careers and to help them overcome obstacles that are currently perceived in their way to achieving...
If I look back at my own story as a child, I learned during school that people-pleasing was a skill and it got results. From putting the pens back in the draw to seeing on report cards “Laura is a pleasure to have in class”, there were always ways that I could please people.
As a skill, people-pleasing or a part of what enables you to people-please is important. It is the ability to be empathetic, read and understand your audience in a very short space of time.
It’s important to understand that people-pleasing, isn’t the same as being kind to others.
The behaviour resides in that you will seek to make others happy, even though it may have a detrimental impact on your health and wellbeing.
It can involve you being terrified, with a physical response of being rejected by others.
How do you know if you are a people pleaser:
