The Importance of Self Praise

By |2019-05-09T02:02:47+10:00February 9th, 2017|Newsletters|Comments Off on The Importance of Self Praise

I regularly talk about self praise - It is one of my favourite topics! Never underestimate the importance of a good pat on the back.  In fact, research shows praising yourself on a regular basis speeds up the new habits being embedded in your body and mind.  Therefore, if you want to make long lasting change, praising yourself on a regular basis is [...]

Positivity is a Choice!

By |2019-05-09T00:13:41+10:00December 14th, 2016|Newsletters|Comments Off on Positivity is a Choice!

We all struggle with negative emotions  from time to time and that is just part of being a human being.  However, it is fair to say that on occasion, many of us often struggle to find the positive in everyday situations. I recently launched a new workshop titled 'How to be a more positive person'. This is a brand new workshop and I recently spoke on this [...]

Let it go!

By |2016-11-01T12:35:59+10:00November 1st, 2016|Newsletters|Comments Off on Let it go!

Let it go! So many of us are still carrying hurts, resentments and pain from years ago - even decades ago! We talk about these hurts to anyone who will listen, we use them as our excuse for the way we are, our beliefs and how we live our lives. We defend our past pains, justify them as a reason for our existence, [...]

Do you know what your Personal Preferences are?

By |2016-07-18T11:24:06+10:00July 18th, 2016|Newsletters|Comments Off on Do you know what your Personal Preferences are?

In my Sydney Life and Confidence Coaching practice, I work with my coaching clients to first identify and honour their own unique personal preferences.   These are the things that often bring us our unique sense of joy and fun.   When we align with these things, we will experience positive emotion. For many of us, recognising that we are truly a unique being, living and flowing [...]

Why the answer to the question ‘What is Important to you?’ can be difficult

By |2016-05-30T13:49:29+10:00May 30th, 2016|Newsletters|Comments Off on Why the answer to the question ‘What is Important to you?’ can be difficult

What is important to you?   Such a simple question really isn't it? However, when I ask my coaching clients this simple question, I usually get answers which are more about what is important to other people - rather than what is actually important to the person I am actually coaching. Many of us are people pleasers spending most of our time doing or saying what [...]

Important – How to Clean up your Own Energy!

By |2016-03-10T10:58:47+10:00March 10th, 2016|What's New|Comments Off on Important – How to Clean up your Own Energy!

We are energetic beings and it's not uncommon for us to take on the energy of other people. Although we can't see this energy, we can feel it! Have you ever felt your energy just drop or feel like someone has sucked the life out of you after spending time with a negative person? If so, you have probably taken on some of the energy of the [...]

What I have learned in 2015.

By |2016-02-01T18:07:04+10:00February 1st, 2016|Newsletters|Comments Off on What I have learned in 2015.

As we hit 2016, it is often a good time to reflect on what 2015 brought to us in terms of new thought patterns, beliefs, experiences and expectations. In this time of reflection and new year resolutions, it's a sad fact that many of us use this time to beat ourselves up. If this is you, I urge you to look back at the past year with kind [...]

What do you LIKE about YOU?

By |2015-02-24T22:17:18+10:00February 24th, 2015|Newsletters|Comments Off on What do you LIKE about YOU?

What do you LIKE about You? When I ask people this simple question,  they often look at me strangely or look terrified. Isn't  it interesting that we find it much easier to say negative things about ourselves than verbally share something that we like about ourselves? So, what do you like about You? The truth is, as human beings we rarely complement ourselves [...]

Building Resilience

By |2013-10-27T08:39:44+10:00October 27th, 2013|Newsletters|Comments Off on Building Resilience

Building Resilience  How resilient are you? For me, building resilience is about learning to cope through life’s ups and downs and being able to bounce back, even in difficult times. It is about viewing hardships as an obstacle to overcome rather than something that takes over your life and you feel has defeated you. Building Resilience is a quality that allows people to [...]

Welcome to this week’s blog on 'Are you a Priority in your Life' from the award winning Sydney  Life Coach and Confidence Coach Lisa Phillips.
