Oops! What is she talking about? Each day we wake up wishing that things would be different from the previous day. We make a long wish list of what we want to do. We wish our challenges would disappear overnight. We wish our children would behave in a certain way that would not cause us heart-ache. We wish our spouse/partners would support us more than what we are currently experiencing with them. So many wishes but little result. Does this sound like what you have done in the past or currently doing?
Most of us are in the above situation, but we are too afraid to scream 'get me out'. We are afraid to ask for support because we don't want others to know that things are not working the way you had hoped. Especially women, we cover up so well so that the world does not see our pain or shame. We put on makeup and wear our heels with the big hair just to cover our pains.
The hidden enemy is that little fox in your head which keeps telling you, that things are ok when they are not. The hidden enemy will not allow you to step out of your comfort zone in order to change your current situation. The hidden enemy tells you that you are not good enough to be loved. The hidden enemy tells you that there are no solutions to your challenges. The hidden enemy tells you that you cannot achieve success in your own right. The hidden enemy tells you to cover up your brilliance because it might offend some people. The hidden enemy tells you that it is ok to feel sorry for yourself. The list goes on and on....... But what are you going to do about the hidden enemy?
Here is how to deal with the hidden enemy:
1. Identify what you desire in life (personal and professionally)
2. Become conscious of your environment - is it empowering or disempowering you.
3. Make conscious effort to pen down your small goals and then move to your big goals
4. Go out there and connect with people who are making things happen in in their field of purpose. Talking about connecting with quality people, I invite you to join us at the Powerhouse Global Conference, Awards & Exhibition taking place on 23rd & 24th June 2017. At this Global event, you will learn how to become more than you already are. The speakers for this Conference are individuals who are making a difference in their field of purpose. Most times, it takes showing up to get discovered. The hidden enemy is within your control if you know how. Register now to secure your place. http://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/powerhouse-global-awards-exhibition-2017-tickets-18754896400
Remember to deal with the hidden enemy before it gets you into a corner. Don’t wait for the right time to take action. Now is the time to start living again.
I look forward to seeing you at the Powerhouse Global Event. If you feel you want a life coach to support you on your journey, please drop me email firstname.lastname@example.org

With so many demands on our lives, we tend to forget to listen to our inner self. Slowly, stress creeps in and takes over our lives. I defined the silent killer (stress) as a mental or physical pressure which affects the total well-being of an individual. A lot of people in today's world ignore the buzzing signal of stress and they sometimes end up in the hospital. Stress weakens the immune system. Stress causes all sorts of problems to our health if not addressed on time.
A few years ago when I was working with a reputable organisation with so many clients to deal with, couple with long hours of travels to and fro......Being on the tube and most times not having to sit down due to over-crowding during rush hour.. Life was on the fast lane for me...I had to focus on the future (starting my own business) in order not to allow my clients; issues to over-burden and cloud my personal life. The pay was very good but my health and relationship was equally suffering.
I was given a wake-up call when I visited the clinic for a check-up meeting. The nurse reminded that life is more important than wealth. She told me to watch my blood pressure ----- scary! Stress does not respect anyone despite your age. As a woman, staying focus on your health should be your no1 priority. Because we give out so much of ourselves, we tend not to check on our well-being and it could be very costly. It is time to step back and study your health score card to ensure that you and I are on track with ourselves.
"In solitude we give passionate attention to our lives, to our memories, to the details around us." - Virginia Woolf
My suggestion to you my reader is for you to set GOALS to become STRESS FREE.
