Every morning ask yourself if today was the last day of your life, would you want to do what you are about to do today?

Do not think about who you are. Think about who do you want to be. Be somebody.

Do not be afraid in trying new things or making mistakes. Life can be hard at times and you may want to quit.

Remind yourself that failure is a part of success.

Decide what you want to do with your life. Live each day like it’s your last ♥

It is the things that you don’t do that you will regret.

Have self belief. You can be whatever you want to be. Never doubt yourself.

Your life will become better by making other peoples life better.

You want the world to be better because of you ♥

Remembering that one day you are going to die is the best way to live your life fully.

Find your passion and remember you will not find that passion in things, or money. The money and things you have will never be will always want more.

Focus on the things that money can’t buy; health, happiness, love.

Find your purpose and passion…

It’s okay if you haven’t found it yet. You will one day.

Don’t give up…

You have to believe in yourself. This is the first step.

Dream big. It’s your journey. Create a legacy ♥

Thanks for reading!

Have you found your purpose & passion?

Here are some of the valuable life lessons I have learnt..

💙 Trust your gut instinct and inner voice. Have you ever been in a situation where you just ‘felt’ something was wrong or felt right? A strong feeling, an internal force and voice guiding you? Well that is your gut instinct or better referred to as gut feeling. Often coupled with our inner voice. Trust them both. Throughout my life I have found that my gut feeling or that ‘tiny’ inner voice is very rarely wrong.

💙 Don’t get caught up in perfection. I was once a perfectionist and it has stolen me of time and happiness. I have learnt perfect is not possible and can not be reached. Be good at what you do and get better at it. Rather, strive for continuous improvement and excellence. Your best is good enough.

“Have no fear of perfection-you’ll never reach it” – Salvador Dali

💙 It’s okay to not be okay. I am human and just like everyone else some of my days are darker than others. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. I am a problem solver, a friend who you can speak to and often has the right answers to make everything okay – so sharing my my own problems, struggles and pain with others has always been difficult. But as I get older, I am learning to be kind to myself. I reach out if I feel I am struggling or need a shoulder to cry on. It’s okay to not be okay.

💙 Accept people are not always what they seem. This is one of the toughest lessons I have learnt. Accept that you will come across people in life that will let you down. Some will hurt or disrespect you and may try to use you to their own advantage. People will come and go in your life. Don’t let hate or pain consume you. The most important thing to remember is that each individual has a lesson to teach you. You will grow stronger and wiser from all the good, bad and ugly experiences. Lessons will be learnt. Let go of everything and everyone who steals your smiles and happiness.

💙 Switch off from technology and reconnect with life. Technology is great and I love it. However, in today’s fast pace digital life we can become ‘hooked’ ‘addicted’ to being online. Schedule time to ‘unplug’ and ‘detox from social media and being online. Enjoy quality time with friends and family. Sit and read a ‘real’ book (with pages) or get outside in nature. Take a walk, observe and enjoy your surroundings – or simply enjoy stillness and the beautiful sound of silence. Enjoy experiences offline and make memories that you can cherish.

💙 Time is precious so use it wisely. Time is the one thing you do not have control over. There is no way to wind it back or move it forward, so it is important you spend it wisely. Live in the now. Enjoy and cherish every second. It’s okay to be selfish with your time. Remember once it’s gone it’s gone!

“Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time” – Rich Warren

💙 Make time for laughter and fun. This is important one for me. If you have met me then you will know that I enjoy a good laugh. Humour and fun is important to me. So ask yourself this question; when was the last time you enjoyed a good laugh?….and I mean a real full belly laugh? Do not take life too seriously. You will never get out of it alive. 🙂

💙 Forgive others. Life is short. Forgiveness is not always easy but it is important to learn how to forgive. Forgiving doesn’t mean you will no longer experience the pain of what happened. Often the pain will still be there. The most important thing to remember is that when you do not forgive others you are actually hurting yourself – you are giving them control over your joy, happiness and peace of mind. Forgiveness is NOT for the other person, forgiveness is for YOU!

“Unforgiveness is like drinking poison yourself and waiting for the other person to die” – Marianne Williamson

💙 Tell your family you love them. There is not a single day that passes by without me telling my family I love them. A loving family is a blessing. Never take them for granted. Spend quality time with them and always be present in the moments you spend with them. Life is precious and each moment is a gift.

💙 Give gratitude daily. It is human nature to focus on what we don’t have in life rather than all we do have. Focus on giving gratitude everyday. Keep a journal and write down all the things you are grateful for. Start and end you day this way. This will change your outlook on life and give you a more positive state of mind. Be grateful for the small things in life because often these are the big things.

Today I wanted to share some of the reasons I believe businesses and brands fail with their social media marketing. Have a read and let me know if you have spotted these or maybe you are guilty of the following too…

(1) Lack of offering value to potential customers.
I see new businesses and brands focusing solely on selling rather than serving the customer and audience. (see point number 2 below) Flip this over: offer lots of value and focus on building relationships first.

Be customer focused. Don’t forget about the “Know, Like, and Trust” factor that grows an audience and builds valuable, lasting relationships.

(2) Heavy with pitching and sales.
This drives me insane and does also happen a lot on Linked in and facebook. There is so much noise on most of the social media platforms today. Don’t add to it and lets be honest no one likes to be sold to. You also need to be careful you don’t come across as ‘spamming’ . Learn to sell without selling. Their is a right way of doing this. (I will share more on this in another post).

(3) Engage with your audience.
Not spending any time engaging with your audience is a common mistake. However, I understand if you are super busy or a high profile individual it is hard to reply back to everyone. I suggest have a system or a strategy in place to deal with this.

My assistant helps me filter the messages I receive on some of my social media platforms. It’s good practice (and manners) to reply back to genuine inquires and messages.

(4) Are you too zoned into what your competitors are doing?
I have been guilty of this in the past too. I am not suggesting it is not important to know what your competitors are doing but if you are spending more time on checking them out on facebook, twitter, linked in etc and not on your own business than you are wasting valuable time.

Write this down…. 

“What you focus on grows. What you resist persists”

(5) No consistency and No patience.

This is common, I see it all the time. You go for it, posting content on all social media platforms and it’s all systems go and there isn’t no stopping you. You’re like a social media powerhouse….you’re on fire dude! But then BANG you STOP! …tumbleweed moment….you’re gone…vanish…disappear.. for a few weeks or even a few months!

(WTF is that all about!?)

Your patience has ran out and you’re thinking f**k that can’t be bothered because you’re seeing no ROI. Come on you know all the best things in life take time. Employ patience and love the process.

Write this down…

 “The strongest of all warriors are these two – Time and Patience”

This is very common in the health and fitness industry in particular. Leave your ego at the door my friend…we haven’t got time for that! Stop spending time bullsh*ting on all platforms and believing your own hype. Start focusing and channeling your energy into taking action in growing your business and serving your customers/ audience. Spend less valuable time on impressing your competitors.

So as you can see this social media marketing thingymajiggy is bloody hard work! I do understand not every enjoys it. Therefore, I suggest outsource and delegate to someone who does, like me 😉 If you are a small business and budget is tight then start off doing it yourself.

How are you getting on with your social media marketing?

Wow! Almost 20 years in the health and fitness industry. The journey has not always been easy. Pursuing a career in an industry where I was a minority was sometimes challenging. I took a few risks and broke some of the rules. I still seem to be very good at that even today! 🙂 My passion, drive, my ‘Why’ was to help others to be the very best possible version of themselves: healthier, happier, successful and to live a life they truly deserve.

My poetic rambling is a reflection of the early days in my career. I hope you enjoy it.

“Sweaty Floors and Broken Nails”

Working in fitness wasn’t a place for a girl like me..

Instructing 6 ft men to lift wasn’t meant to be.

6.30 a.m gym starts and 10.30 pm, whispering ‘Honey I’m home’..

Often tired and feeling so alone.

Sweaty floors and broken nails..

There is no option to ever fail.

One more rep..

Come on..

Take one more step.

Sharing all my secrets..

None were kept.

I know one day they will see..

I am that girl who holds the key.

Sweaty floors and broken nails..

There is no option to ever fail.

Follow my passion..

Follow a dream..

Don’t you see it was just meant to be.

If you have been following me on my various social media platforms or reading my blogs then you will also know I am artist and have a passion for art and sculpture.

Yes, I am that individual who sits for endless hours in an art gallery or exhibition enjoying a piece of art or sculpture. Observing and enjoying allowing myself to get lost in my imagination..

Fixed in a trance like state, my thoughts lost amongst the beautiful hues, tones, textures and more…completely immersed.

I am indeed a very creative , expressive multifaceted…slightly odd..soul! #weirdo 🙂

One of my favourite sculptures is: ‘Freedom’ by the Sculptor: Zenos Frudakis. Location of sculpture: 16th and Vine Streets, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.(See picture below). I haven’t yet had the opportunity of visiting the location to view this marvellous work. However, when I seen the picture and video (below) it resonated with me. I am sure it will with some of you too. It evoked mixed emotions of pain, struggle, courage, victory, joy and freedom. It’s message is very powerful.

I believe everyone at some point in their life finds themselves in a situation where they seek the desire to escape and break free. For many it could be a internal struggle for others a more adverse one. Both often tough to break free from. Early this year I communicated with the Sculptor on Twitter – expressing my gratitude for such a beautiful creation. I wanted him to know how much I appreciated it and it inspired me. 

Zenos’s statement about his vision of the sculpture:

“I wanted to create a sculpture almost anyone, regardless of their background, could look at and instantly recognise that it is about the idea of struggling to break free. This sculpture is about the struggle for achievement of freedom through the creative process.” – Zenos Frudakis

Often the stories we tell ourselves can set us back from achieving greatness and reaching our full potential. Listening to negative inner voices can be our worse enemy. When we are facing challenges that is often when self doubt creeps in. Learn to adapt to change and deal with setbacks.

I view challenges in business as exciting rather than threatening and have the confidence to take on most things. I may succeed or I could fail. I am determined, driven and will give it my best shot. Change the story you are continually telling yourself. Did you know you have total control over your thoughts?

My Monday rambling..

Dear Friend,

Often we spend to much time worrying..
Caring about what others think of us.
We hold ourselves back because of fear and self doubt.
We miss opportunities..Sometimes great opportunities…
because we simply think we are not good enough.
We fear rejection and criticism.
This is no way to live you life my friend.
Banish all self doubt and fear.
Believe in yourself and do not listen to the negative inner voices in your head.
YOU are good enough.
Go fulfil your dreams.
Set Yourself Free!
