I’m living my dream and have created great roles that satisfy not only my life but others. Most of you know me as a mental performance coach. This I love but one of my other roles is a tour lead for Women’s Travel Network. Last month I had the pleasure of being on an expedition with amazing women as we safaried in Africa. Their dream and mine were achieved. During that trip, I was reminded of 5 lessons that impact life which included the importance of mental mastery.
What is the story that you tell yourself about your life, relationship or performance?
Do you hide behind certain beliefs or people?
Are you telling the truth about yourself?
“Yes” you say but what if you’re not and just living a life you feel you should versus the one you want. You want to be a success or maybe you are but certain things still get in your way. Certain thoughts pop up either about yourself or what you think about others.
Events may cause you to feel joy, happiness, love and laughter. It can also deliver you things that can make you feel frustrated, angry, sad, mad or fear. You can easily get distracted and thrown off track.
How do you get back on track?
How do you stay focused and achieve your goals?
Yesterday I had the pleasure of spending the day at the Toronto Zoo.
My life amazes me as I can manifest things with ease when I need them and that is what seem to happen with this course. I set a goal to improve my photography skills especial taking live animal shots. The reason for this goal is I’m leaving for Kenya Wildlife Safari November 3rd. I have the honour to be a tour lead for Womens Travel Network.
Once the goal was set the next thing was to take action and I searched the internet. Lucky for me this course at the Toronto Zoo popped up. Continue reading
Do you set a goal and then wait for it to happen?
Do you wonder how some people can make success happen so easily?
Do you have some bring goals and desires you want to achieve?
Having a goal or a dream is easy but making it come to life may be a challenge for some. Continue reading
Recently I got caught up in drama that disrupted my routine and focus which affected everything around me. I was having an amazing month and so on track to deliver the results for myself and my clients. I was reminded of an old Polish proverb, “Not my circus, not my monkeys.” The underlining meaning is “not my problem.”
Mistakes or errors occur every day in life, but many people don’t have the mental game that allows them to let go of errors and this hurts their chances for success. Errors such as a screw up on a simple task, letting a competitor maneuver themselves to grab a deal that was meant to be yours, or maybe you dropped the ball when asked to do something important for a key person that let them down.
Have you ever had a performance that you just nailed it?
Did you ever wonder how you could lock that in and repeat it again and again?
Have you ever been able to just focus while chaos is going on around you?
If you can answer yes to any of these you may have a skill that others would love to learn to develop.
I was watching Jordan Spieth, Professional Golfer, the other day in a playoff. He was hoping to win the Travelers Championship. He landed in the sand and some say luck was with him as he chipped out in the hole to win. Now this is what many are calling spectacular, one of the greatest shots I’ve seen lately. I loved his reaction which he did a body slam with his caddy to celebrate the shot. Continue reading
Do you lack motivation?
Dragging your feet to get something done?
Need a boost or nudge to tackle the task?
At times, you may feel like you feel intimidated or just lack motivated to do things you like to do or need to do. Motivation is the WHY that drives you to do the things you do and to avoid the things you avoid every day. It’s the reason you work or play and it influences every relationship we have. Big picture you may be motivated by fun, love, money, power or fame. In your day-to-day life, your personal motivation strongly determines how you perform at your job and how well you perform.

As a coach of over achievers both in the business world and the sport’s world I know their challenges and desires. My experience has shown me that they run parallel and their goals the same, they want to be the best.
I recall working with a young golfer whose goal was to make Team Canada. They already had dedicated many years from a very young age to develop their skills, both physical and technical, but the one piece that was missing was a formal systematic mental training program. Continue reading
