Why Can’t I Step Outside My Comfort Zone?

As I began writing this blog, I had a realisation of how much being a perfectionist has impacted my life over the years. Being a perfectionist stops you starting things, meaningful projects that can have a positive impact on your life and others. You don’t start things if they aren’t going to be perfect. And if you don’t start, you can never create anything of any value. Being a perfectionist is the ultimate vicious circle. I have to keep reminding myself of that fact. So what does being a perfectionist have to do with getting outside of your comfort zone? Perfectionists have three fears which are the barrier to any great project, and once you understand these fears and how they serve [...]

How To Know When It’s Finally Time To Quit

We have all been guilty of it. Staying in a job we hate, waking up each day in a loveless relationship or holding onto an investment waiting for it to swing. Eventually they come to an end, either through our own doing or as a result of external factors (getting fired, dumped or made bankrupt!), and when this happens and once the dust has settled, there is usually a sense of acceptance and calm that ensues. It is almost as if we know life is better now that those situations are not part of our lives but knowing the right time to quit is not easy to identify. So why don’t we quit these situations sooner? Why instead do we hang on [...]

Life’s Success Lessons Learned In The Gym

When I was younger, all I wanted to do was study the human body. I was a sports addict and wanted to discover how to push the boundaries of human physical performance. How could people keep breaking records in marathons, sprint events and weight lifting. My final degree mark reflected how I allocated my time between the library and the gym. However, when I went back to study my masters a few years later, it was psychology, not physiology, which grabbed my attention. I started learning about mental techniques and success lessons that could create the same results in minutes as months of training in the gym could accomplish. All of a sudden, the mind-body connection that everyone talks about was very [...]

Why You Should Set Impossible Goals

Right now, you should be working on at least one or more impossible goals. Whilst that advice might initially seem to lead to inevitable frustration and lifelong failure, if you think about it, all goals were at one time impossible. Everything you take for granted in your life was at one time impossible. Walking, tying your shoe laces and riding a bicycle were once things you aspired to be able to do, but at the time felt so far away. However, through persistence, observation, coaching and cute little nursery rhymes (something about bunny rabbit ears??) you were eventually able to master these skills. So why then, when we get older, do we decide not to take on impossible goals? […]

Why Being Whole Comes Before You Reach Your Goal

How many masks do you wear? I don’t mean physically, but more of a metaphor. Maybe you wear a particular mask to work and when you get home, you change it to be someone else. What mask do you wear in your relationship, with your family and friends, with your boss? We wear masks to hide what lies beneath, pretending to be something different to who we really are. We do this because we believe the people we encounter want to see something different than what we can offer, and so hiding behind a mask, we can play that part without risking the rejection of our own personal self. When I was younger, it seemed as though I had a different mask [...]

3 Types Of Courage

Aristotle once said “You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor”. We all know that we need courage to step up and make the most out of our lives, but what is courage? The dictionary defines courage as ‘the ability to do something that frightens one’, but surely there is more than one dimension of courage? Is the courage it takes to ride a roller coaster the same as it is to ask someone to dance? If you can jump out of an aircraft, can you also swim with sharks or speak in public? If you look at the different actions in life that require an element of bravery [...]

How To Live A Life On Purpose

“Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” Howard Thurman Ever feel like your life is running on autopilot? You wake up every day going about the same old routine. Its not bad enough to change, but it is far from what you dreamed about back when you were a child. What happened? At some point a while back, your dreams gave way to your sensibilities. You let go of your childhood fantasies and bought into the idea of getting a job, paying the bills and doing what everyone expected of you. For some, the question of doing something else, something more fulfilling, [...]

Live A Post-It Life, Not A To-Do List Life!

Let’s face it, life gets pretty busy at times. Our to do list gets longer and we start pulling more and more action items through from yesterday. Eventually we get to a point where we are so busy, but exactly what are we busy doing? Catching up? Somehow, in this world where we have so much to do, we managed to create a life in which catching up is no longer possible. Emails flood our inboxes daily with requests, offers, demands and opportunities, so much so that ‘empty my inbox’ is on many people’s to do list itself. Demands for our time come from every direction and it seems the busier you get, the more people need you to do. Eventually, we [...]

Why Perfectionists Can Never Be Successful

There are certain things I like about being a perfectionist. I like the way all of the writing in my diary is the same colour. I like the way everything on my desk is arranged at right angles. I like how my coffee is made because I make it exactly the same way each time. I used to think being a perfectionist was something to be admired, how I only did great work and how everything I touched turned to gold… or something like that. And yes, that was pretty accurate, most of my work was pretty good, and so I thought I was doing ok. However, the problem was I didn’t do very much work, and most of what I did [...]
