Happy New Year Everyone,
Can I still say that? It's still January after all.
It’s been a busy start to the year for me running my own business full-time. It’s challenging, exciting and most of all empowering to feel I have a certain amount of control over my life.
“I think that whenever you feel reactive or are being reactive as opposed to proactive, that inherently - consciously or subconsciously - creates a lot of stress.”
I'm not sure if it’s me but the world seems to be changing so rapidly and the pace of life is speeding up. Trying to keep pace can be exhausting and unnerving when being in a constant state of uncertainty.
It’s at this time that it's helpful to find strategies and your tribe to support you and give you breathing space to slow down, reflect and be proactive, rather than reactive.
Thank you to everyone who responded to the survey, it was really interesting and enlightening. The survey was anonymous so I don’t know who responded. Here are some of the key insights and common responses;
What area is the biggest challenge in your life right now?
42% said “personal”, followed by 26% who said “professional”
What do you feel is stopping you from reaching your vision?
50% of you identified areas that are holding you back including;
"The belief that it’s too hard or unobtainable. Not loving myself enough."
"Want guidance. Security. Confidence."
"Having the right framework to stay on course."
"Not having a clear vision."
Give a brief description of the 3 key challenges for you right now.
"I feel isolated on the journey. I feel unsure about work opportunities. I’m stuck on what’s next.”
“Self-belief, betrayal, time”
Would you be interested in joining a community to support your growth?
63% of you said would like to join a group
This shows that some of you are in need of support and struggling to find it.
As part of the Creative Muscle community, I would like to donate some time for anyone who feels they need it for a short coaching session, a non-judgemental chat or just someone to listen for a while - free of charge.
The idea is that this can help provide clarity, give a sense of direction or allow you to think out loud or just be heard. Send me a message for "1-2-1"
Some of you have been asking for a while for a “community” to join and the result of the survey reflects this.
I hear you and am creating a community for those that are interested in being part of a group.
Launching next month The Kaizen* Group will be there to support you with your aspirations, keeping you accountable, motivated and focused in a safe and authentic space.
*Kaizen is a Japanese term that loosely translates to "small steps of continual improvement."
It will be an interactive community that will connect via WhatsApp and Zoom for live sessions. For those of you that require additional focus and 1-2-1 Empowerment sessions, I’ll also be launching specific packages that will give you the best of both worlds; 1-2-1’s and access to the community.
If you are interested in joining the group please message me "kaizen and I’ll send you some additional information and add you to the list.
I’m super excited to announce that I am working on two retreats;
UK Release-Reset-Renew - June 2nd -5th 2023 - I am just finalising details for this and will be sharing details in the coming days. If you want to register your interest message me "UK retreat."
Thailand - Inner Guru - 2024 - details to follow in the coming months.
Be Well and stay safe.
