Make One Change Happen

I'm running a complimentary programme to support us in making one change happen. It's rocking my world. Here's why.

Towards the end of the year I noticed my anxiety rising a tad with all the planning, endings, beginnings and reviews. I would turn on Facebook and be inundated with promotions and recommendations for planners. I'll be honest I found it overwhelming. I wasn't ready.

In late November / early December I sent out a survey to the wonderful people who have subscribed to receive my updates and blogs on my personal website. I asked them what they were struggling with. I was surprised by the responses. They said they wanted to get into action and what was holding them back was their inner critic and lack of focus.

Two weeks before Christmas I decided I wanted to do something to support them to create a new reality for themselves. I created a free programme called Make One Change Happen. It includes a visualisation, workbook and 10 email prompts and a private Facebook group.

My intention and stake for the programme was clear ... that lasting change happens when we come from a place of loving and owning who we are. I wanted whoever showed up, to see the magic of who they are and learn to stretch and grow from giving themselves permission to be shine.

On a personal level, I have reached a point where I am so tired of holding up perfected ideals and then criticising how I should be different or further along from where I am. I am where I am. My clients are where they are and once we accept that fully we can get really clear about what we want to create more of in our lives. That's a completely different energy to holding up an ideal of who we think we "should" be and how we "ought" to be doing things differently and then pushing hard to reach that standard.

I'm amazed at what's happening in the Facebook Group. These wonderful souls are showing up and sharing and supporting each other. They're learning with and from each other. They're inspiring each other. And it's teaching me so much. It reminds me that connection and community is really at the heart of growing and learning. That when we allow our vulnerability to be seen and choose not to be defined by it, we self-empower. It shows me that if you're feeling something and isolated, the secret really is to lean in and share because you can bet that someone else, somewhere is feeling the same thing. We are all connected.

If you would like to make one change happen, I'd want to invite you to explore your relationship with yourself as you go through that process. Be kind. Be loving. Be compassionate. Be forgiving. Notice the small steps, and above all, find your tribe.

And if you want to join the make one change happen community you can sign up here. You'll find a warm welcome, inspiration and connection.

Work with Courage, -

I'm inspired by who you can be without apology and I want to help you release your fullest expression. My life turned around when I was given feedback on a leadership programme that I had an apologetic energy. I felt a mixture of anger and sadness because it was exactly how I was living and who I was being. I'd been giving my power away and playing small in a conditioned way of living. I took my 20+years corporate experience in OD, HR, Learning and Development, embraced my dreams and started living life on my own terms. I learnt to let self empowerment and authenticity trump fitting in, playing nice and fake harmonising. I help clients embrace their inner shine and play their bigger game.
