The road to success is never a straight line. The problem is that we often think it is and get disheartened, discouraged when things don’t go the way we hoped. We give ourselves a hard time because we aren’t progressing, take it personally and think we’re just not good enough or we blame other people and circumstances.
These judgements are one of the main barriers to success because they don’t give us permission to learn, and without that permission life is tense and uninspiring.
The truth is that successful people have hard times.

Resilience is one of the main tenets of positive psychology and how you respond to setbacks/failures/challenges has a big impact on your wellbeing. Viewing them as opportunities, as something that you need to learn is empowering and invites change that can move you forward.
‘There is no such thing as failure only feedback’
Developing expansive learning beliefs like this is one of the most important things we can do to accelerate our personal growth. Coaching with me will help you to take a bigger picture view that enables you to do this.
It is a great way to eliminate the judgements that block creativity and get the fun back into life so you can enjoy the zigs and zags of your journey.
