Overwhelm – How Do You Manage Yours?

  Overwhelm. We all experience at one stage or another. Whether it happens frequently or rarely, it's a bit like that other "it" that people say happens.  If you try and tell me it never happens to you, I won't believe you.  Either that or I'll ask you how on earth you manage it! This post aims to examine it in a bit more detail and take a look at a few ways to help overcome it. Why Does it Happen? Overwhelm usually occurs when the number of stressors you're coping with outweigh your coping skills. Symptoms can vary, but if you recognise...

New business: Some considerations and why it’s okay to pivot

When your business is very, very new, everything about it is a trial.  You may think you know your target market and what will appeal to them. You may even have done massive amounts of research to support it, but until it's put to the test, it's still theory.  It's perfectly fine to pivot in your business, but as the article in the link states, you need to ensure you learn from the reasons why you're pivoting in the first place. My business has pivoted twice during it's relatively short life and as a result, I've picked up a few tips along...

Change is Inevitable

  The time since my family returned to Sydney after our belated Christmas celebrations has been one of very deep reflection for me. I’ve thought about the life I wish to create and what I want to contribute to the world, and how successful I’ve been at it since commencing my business. Resonate and its future has been a big part of that contemplation.   I know that 2015 is going to be a year of radical change. I've felt it coming for a long time now. As a result, Resonate eMagazine will be changing its direction and will no longer be...

Be the Change…..

Be the Change…..

The Lindt Chocolate Cafe in Sydney's Martin Place used to be a place where people went for a little extra indulgence and delight.  Among the many cafes and coffee shops in the area, it exuded charm and was an extra special place to meet for a treat, whether it be a great coffee, a deluxe hot chocolate or one of the many goodies Lindt is renowned for.  I'd often meet my daughter and/or friends there after I'd finished seeing clients in my Hypnotherapy/Coaching practice just around the corner in Macquarie Street.  I used the Westpac bank...

How to Feel Empowered When Your World’s Falling Apart

This month's guest post is by the wonderful Keri Kight.  She has some wonderful tips for feeling re-empowered during those times when nothing seems to be going right.  Thank you, Keri, for giving us permission to acknowledge that it's okay to give voice to our frustrations during down times, followed by tips on how we can then pick ourselves up again. Best friends. Home. Our pets. Our big, comfy chair. These are the things we run to when the going gets tough. We all have our comforts, our loves, and the things that fill our hearts and souls....

Top 10 Tips for Staying Motivated

I recently came across an article in which Phil Mitsch puts forward his top 10 motivational tips for October. Personally, I have no idea who Phil Mitsch is (sorry, Phil!) but I thought it would be fun to compose my own Top 10 and see how yours compare.  So without further ado, I present my Top 10 Tips for Staying Motivated. Start on the work even if you don't want to.  If you can work on something, even for just 10 minutes, you'll find yourself getting in the flow, it will become easier to pay attention and you may even find you don't want to...

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Don’t Shoot the Messenger

Brain blurts and messages For the past couple of weeks, I've been writing 'morning pages', which involves three pages of longhand writing every morning, to dump all of the stuff going around in your brain onto paper to make way for more creativity.  It's the brainchild of Julia Cameron, whose book, "The Artist's Way", I bought as an extra special treat for myself.  I've been going along dutifully writing every day without it having much of an effect on me externally, sometimes having to force myself because I've had nothing to say and at...

Strong Boundaries – Essential for Business

How strong are your boundaries?  I thought mine were pretty strong, until someone threw a verbal tantrum on social media recently because they didn't get their own way.  It made me realise that running my heart-centred business my way  involves not only stepping into who I need to be, but also stepping up the measures I take to maintain strong boundaries.  My experience went like this:   After posting a quote from one of my wonderful Resonate contributors in a social media group, I received a friend request from a fellow member, who...

Finding Your Purpose is More About the Journey, Not the Destination

I have this letter tucked away in my underwear drawer, and when I find myself wanting to curl up and hide from my problems, I force myself to read it. Why? It's a letter from my grandmother, that she wrote to me right before she passed away. In this letter, I find the comfort I seek, in that particular moment. But it's not joy that the letter is giving me. It's a reminder that what I actually seek, whether joy or happiness, comes from within. My grandmother always believed in me and believed in my power to create the life that I craved....

Getting Back to Reality

Wow. It's not even 48 hours since 'Resonate' eMag launched and while I'm sitting in a daze of awe and gratitude, it's time to get back to reality.  The response to it has been overwhelming, the feedback incredibly positive and I am so very thankful to each and every one of you who has expressed an interest, who has contributed, who has taken a peek at this website and/or who has downloaded the very first issue.   Resonate is about real stories told by real women about the challenges they face getting their dreams out in the world.  ...
