Australia Day

Daily, I count my blessings that I live in this country and that this country allows me the freedom to choose the way I live, without fear of persecution or prosecution of my lifestyle, beliefs and values.

That freedom, I believe, also carries with a responsibility to support my country through staying healthy, paying taxes and not being a drain on the health or welfare system.

On the subject of staying healthy, I spoke last week about a  wonder juice for my aching shoulders – well, it is still working and helping me mobilise, exercise and sleep.  Cumerone 1200 truly is a ‘life saver’. Ultra sounds and X rays reveal severe calcification and degeneration in my shoulder joint which  is the cause for pain and restricted movement.  I’ve always pushed through that pain…. and, I might add, caused more pain/inflammation.

A little knowledge and help from a physio and pain rehab specialist will help me restore strength to this ever-weakening upper body of mine.  The expression ‘ignorance is bliss’ certainly does NOT apply in this instance.   My lack of understanding of what was going on in my body meant that I have exercised inappropriately; beyond reasonable limits and produced counter-productive pain. Inflamed muscle cannot repair itself.

Listen to your body; do not ignore it.  Gather knowledge, then act.

Yours truly has just returned from the gym.


Hi there. I’ve not ‘blogged’ before and, in a world of information overload, wish to only post information of value.

What is really interesting to me at the beginning of 2010 is how so many people, including myself, say that 2009 was an annus horribilis and how they are looking forward to a more positive and rewarding 2010.

That’s great… for mindset is important.

However, how many times have I heard folk say “Oh, no, I’m not going to make any new year resolutions. I never keep them”.

So, seriously, how can you expect life to change ( for the better ) if you are not prepared to change yourself? Quite simply, if you are not teachable, life won’t get better. If you are not both willing to learn and willing to change, your life won’t change.

So what I am doing differently?

Well, I have taken the first couple of weeks of this year to gain as much medical information that I can regarding a chronic shoulder condition that I have suffered with for years… and I have booked in with a physio and a pain rehab specialist to take me through a consistent training program. I knew I couldn’t / wouldn’t do it on my own.

How often do you overlook a niggle, pain, indigestion, emotional issue and just ‘hope’ it will get better?

I refused steroid injections and have sourced an AMAZING product based on Turmeric (Cumerone 1200) which has magically blocked /stopped the pain.  Herbal, natural and it works. If you are in pain, contact me and I’ll tell you where to get it. It is natural.

Why Winning Habits

Why Winning Habits?

For over a decade, I have guided and encouraged people to create winning habits through my work as a conference speaker, MC, organisational and personal coach.  It has always been a very simple message – winning is a habit, so is losing; every single day our habits determine our effectiveness or ineffectiveness and say much about our values and character.

I have always maintained that daily habits determine our destiny and that if we wish to change our lives then we must change our habits.   Whilst others consider that ‘success’ is way out there beyond our reach, I maintain that ‘yard by yard it is hard, inch by inch it is a cinch’.  Quite simply, in every moment of every day, we are making choices that do and will impact our future; whether we choose an apple or a Tim Tam; whether we react in anger or step back and consider; whether we accept responsibility or blame others and become a victim. Our life, Our choice.

It has always been a privilege and an honour to work with clients, supporting them through their pain and obstacles in all areas of their life so they can move on and achieve their desired goals. My talks and workshops draw on everyday events, relationships, challenges and interactions; situations and experiences people can easily relate to, as opposed to text book-speak.

Having said that, the ‘science’ of habits is timeless. 80-90% of our actions and emotional responses are habitual and those very habits are making or breaking us.  The first step in changing is creating awareness of the habits serving us well and those that do not.

Changing habits does not depend on luck or willpower. It is a process that can be successfully managed by anyone who understands how it works and is prepared to explore the steps required to create winning habits.
