Support isn’t a dirty word….what it takes to ask for help

As a high-achiever I’ve always been used to things coming pretty easily to me. Not having to practise very much, or having to ask for much help. If I apply my brain I can generally work things out, and more than that, be pretty good at it pretty fast. Even writing this, there’s a part of me thinking “wow, that’s arrogant, don’t say that” but the simple fact is it’s true. I’m almost certain...

Why your biggest fears are actually inside your comfort zone

I’ve been spending a lot of time thinking about my comfort zone recently. It’s a core concept in the work I do – that getting outside of it, stretching ourselves, getting uncomfortable – is access to possibility. Access to the things we really want. This week, in an exercise I have done literally countless times with prospective and current clients over the years, one client said something totally profound. “I always thought my fears...

How long can you tolerate your success?

I had a great day yesterday. A GREAT day. I had my first really big speaking engagement as a Leadership Coach, speaking at the Women into Leadership Conference in Glasgow. And I nailed it. I was confident on stage, I engaged the audience, I was authentic, I had impact, the audience each took something for themselves of value. I’d know that even without any feedback – and I had a lot of great feedback...

Intentional Leadership – what is it, and why is it important?

Intentional Leadership – what is it, and why is it important? When I look back over 2018, I feel pretty proud. I achieved a lot – in my business, in my relationships, and in myself. It’s incredibly important to celebrate that, whether or not it was exactly what I had in mind. Us perfectionists tend not to do this very well, so it is a great thing to practise! It is equally important to...

Feel the fear and do it anyway

You know the feeling. You’re thinking about trying something new, or taking on something challenging – something you want to do, and yet somehow your mind and body don’t quite co-operate. Your excitement is mixed with fear, trepidation, wondering how it will turn out, not sure whether you’ll be able to do it, afraid it won’t work out. It can manifest as physical sensations, that feeling in the pit of your stomach, or the...

Being triggered – the big red emergency button

A couple of things have happened to me in the last couple of weeks which have triggered me. Pushed a button I have and didn’t necessarily know I had. Or a button I thought was under control, aaaaand it wasn’t. How do I know? Suddenly I’m overwhelmed with different thoughts, feelings and body sensations which I don’t know what to do with. Anger, fear, guilt, confusion, excitement, uncertainty. My stomach is churning and my...

Welcome to the Possibility Project

Welcome to the Possibility Project! I’m going to start with a bit of background about what this blog is, why it is called what it is, and what it’s all about. Many of us live our lives deep in a world of scarcity. Scarcity of time. Scarcity of money. Scarcity of love. Scarcity of opportunity. Scarcity of space in our lives to reflect and act upon the things we really want. We always reach...
