Unleash the power of your dreams in 2017

blog post graphic for facebook (10).png

Is 2017 going to be the year when you finally unleash the power in your dreams, when you become truly powerful?

I'm not talking about bossing everyone around power, I'm talking about having personal power, that feeling of knowing without doubt that 2017 is your year and you have the power to bring your dreams into the world for yourself.

You have the power to show the whole world what you've got. When feelings of not being good enough, attractive enough, old or young enough, are out. You know you have what it takes, deep. deep down in your soul.

When you feel you could fly to the moon and back and still have energy left for a celebration party.

You have the power to show up

Pin it!

Pin it!

You're not afraid to stand up and show yourself to the world and your clients because you are enough as you are. You don't need fixing, tweaking or improving. You are perfect NOW and you show up in your human wonderfulness.

You have the power to trust that your actions will make a difference

It's about being secure that our thoughts and actions will have the impact and results we so deeply desire. 

You take action, you do the work and whatever it takes to get your message out to your clients. You write the blog, learn how to speak on camera, do the inner work, push past your fears and doubts. You know that sitting around eating a large slice of cake is not going to move you forward.

You have the power to keep at it

But maybe you've struggled this year as an online entrepreneur. Perhaps the clients, revenue, opportunites you'd hoped for haven't materialised........yet. But you have the power to keep at it, regardless of whether the results are showing up for you because you know that success is about keeping going, even when the results are taking their time.

You have the power to keep your inner world on track

And when the results are really loitering in some small cave somewhere and you're faced with setbacks and disappointments, you have the power to treat yourself with kindness and gentle firmness to bring your emotions back on track, to reignite optimism and faith. To pick yourself up again.

You have the power to choose

And even if there are times when you doubt all of this, you know don't you that you have the power to choose, to make a more empowering decision to create a different experience for yourself.

And you most certainly have the power to unleash your dreams, big time


Dreams can have unbelievable power if we let them, if we're willing to be the person they demand of us, if we're willing to dream big.

And  we can learn to create this easily, effortlessly. Working, yes and being prepared to work very very hard. But not struggling. Not feeling as if we're pushing against some vast wall, our noses pressed to the glass so we can see our wonderful future but we just can't get at it.

So today I want to suggest that there is a way we can do this, a way to unleash the power of our dreams in a way that feels like living permanently in flow.

To unleash our dreams, we need to BE bigger, to expand our vision of who we are. 

We need to grow into a more expansive, brighter shinier version of ourselves because being powerful is also about expanding our sense of who we are, at will,even if the evidence is experiencing a time lag.

We need to expand our self identity in a way that is more empowering, trusting, knowing that our dreams will then create themselves. 

So who are you, now? Are you being WHO you want to be, or is there room for a soupcon of movement forward, a huge leap or a blast forward into success so quickly you haven't even got time to get your party shoes on?

Lets take the power for ourselves to unleash the magic of our dreams. Lets live bigger and more powerfully

All I want for you this Christmas

This year, you may have struggled to get your biz to where you wanted it to be.

Perhaps you struggled to get clients or were stuck on your long, endless list of tasks that just had to be finished before you could even think of launching your biz to the world.

But my wish for you this Christmas is that right now, right this minute, you step into being a $3K/ $5k / $10K a month entrepreneur - whatever feels like the next step for you (and yes, this goes for you even if you haven't got one client, or made one sale).

Christmas can be a magical time of year, A time of glistening snow, warming hot drinks, rosy cheeked children, and laughter around a cozy log fire.

So this may not be your reality (I live in dark, damp UK for goodness sake) but whatever our circumstances, this festive season can be a time of magic, of possibilities of allowing ourselves to dream for the year ahead. It would be a sorry time indeed if it were,

"Always winter but never Christmas."

C.S.Lewis. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

For many, this involves thinking about what we're setting this January for 2017's New Year's resolutions. Perhaps it involves planning how we're going to find those five new clients or write those regular blog posts.

But the question I'd like to ask you is how helpful have these been to you in the past?

Because maybe this year it's time to find a way that helps us change much more powerfully with far more success. I'm talking blowing apart all our carefully planned resolutions and thinking far, far bigger than we're dared to dream in the past.

And what if there was an easier way to achieve our dreams?

A way that rather than focusing on the different goals we wanted to achieve, looked instead at who we want to be because when we focus on this level of change everything else slots effortlessly into place.

We're all familiar with the idea of the self-fulling prophecy. I believe I'm capable of making deep connections with others and I'm likable so I reach out, behave in friendly way and hey, I find this is reflected in my world.

My identity leads me to certain beliefs so I behave in a particular way and if I believe the opposite, my beliefs and behaviour are very, very different.

This is automatic.

But what if we could do this for ourselves, if we could tweak our image, nudge it onto a more empowering trajectory? Then we could start creating our perfect, future identity NOW, suspend judgement and disbelief and make the decision to allow reality to amble along in its own time to catch up with us.

What would this mean?

It would mean that reaching our goals would be about being pulled forward rather than being pushed by all the tasks we need to complete and the fear of not succeeding.

It's motivation at a much, much deeper level.

So say I'm working on becoming a £$10K a month (consistently and without effort) entrepreneur.

My task is to conjure up a vivid image of who I would be if this were true. Then I ask myself, if this were true, what would I believe, what would be important to me?

And then I start acting as if.

So it's out with the self doubt, the procrastination and the perfectionism because in my world, a $£10k a month entrepreneur isn't sitting on the couch, wondering if they've really got it in them, if the world really needs to hear their message, if their ideal client isn't just a self-indulgent fantasy.

They're out there. Big time. Making connections, doing the things that scare them, they're showing up, being consistent. Just getting on with it and dodging the setbacks and celebrating the steps forward.

Because that's who they are.

So who are you, now? Are you being WHO you want to be, or is there room for a soupcon of movement forward, a huge leap or a blast forward into success so quickly you haven't even got time to get your party shoes on?

Lets dream together in the magic of this festive time.
