Resilience is not the absence of adversity

Posted Posted in Business Coaching, Coaching, Parenting, Resilience

This is something I repeat often to my coaching clients and in #ResilienceWorkshops…   RESILIENCE IS NOT THE ABSENCE OF ADVERSITY!   Just because you are going through a challenge does not mean you are not resilient. In fact, just by getting up each day, working your way through it, wondering about the best solution, etc, you are displaying resilience. You are more resilient – and stronger – than you think. Spend any time with me in a 1:1 coaching session and I will prove it to you. Better still, you will see it yourself and believe it from within your own heart and soul.   This is something I have to remind myself of too. (Coaches are human as well – we have wobbles too!). When I remember this mantra, it’s easier to allow emotions to take their course, to wait patiently until a fearful moment has passed.   […]

Business Coaches know the best business tools!

Posted Posted in Business Coaching, Coaching, Uncategorized

After I was a nurse and midwife, and before I became a coach, I was a VA (virtual assistant), so suffice to say that I know, and use, some of the best tools and software! These* are some of my favourites. Thinkific “The online course platform you can trust with your business” Acuity Scheduling “Acuity Scheduling is your online assistant, working 24/7 to fill your schedule.” SumUp “A better way to get paid” MailChimp “Marketing automation for e-commerce businesses. Send beautiful emails, connect your e-commerce store, advertise, and build your brand.” The Money Making Movement Online business mentoring programmes for female business owners.     *These are affiliate links, which means that if you click through from my website and purchase a product through that link, I will earn a commission (at no additional cost to you).

Yes, I Will Make Sure I Have A Conversation Today With Someone Who Is Important To Me.

Posted Posted in Business Coaching, Coaching, Resilience

Today’s affirmation: “Yes, I Will Make Sure I Have A Conversation Today With Someone Who Is Important To Me.” Life is short, time is precious.  When you run your own business it’s all too easy for the workload to consume every waking moment.  When is the last time you had a meaningful conversation with someone who is important to you?  Be mindful and present, listen deeply and talk openly with them.  Or reach out to someone you haven’t spoken to for a while but who is still one of your ‘tribe’.  Human connection is an important fuel for our wellbeing.  If you have been lacking in this area because you have been so busy, try to address that today.

Yes! I Will Seek Out Opportunities To Laugh Today

Posted Posted in Business Coaching, Coaching, Resilience

Today’s affirmation: “Yes! I Will Seek Out Opportunities To Laugh Today” 🙂 Business should be fun!  Laughing is so good for us it should be the first port of call when we feel low. It is physically and mentally beneficial; encouraging deep breaths of air, clearing the mind, and of course releasing those lovely endorphins. Find a moment of joy in relation to your business.  Need inspiration?  Why not try Pinterest.  A search for cartoons and illustrations related to your business or sector will have you seeing the lighter side of life in no time. Set goals. Make progress. Move forward towards business success every day. Lisa, x #BusinessCoaching #ResilienceForBusinessOwners P.S.

Yes, I Will Name The Lessons I’ve Learned From Tough Times in my Business

Posted Posted in Business Coaching, Coaching, Resilience

Today’s affirmation: “Yes, I Will Name The Lessons I’ve Learned From Tough Times in my Business” Often when we have been through a tough time, we’d prefer to forget it, never speak of it again and try to erase its presence from our lives.  This may indeed serve you well, but in a way is a lost opportunity to acknowledge just how much you learned and grew during that time.  Naming the ways we are stronger after weathering a storm is a very positive action and can help you to feel more resilient and unafraid of future challenges.  Have you ever congratulated yourself for picking yourself up again when you were knocked down? If not (and I bet you didn’t!) do it now. Set goals. Make progress. Move forward towards business success every day. Lisa #BusinessCoaching #ResilienceForBusinessOwners P.S.

Yes, I Will Accept What I Cannot Change And Move On in my Business

Posted Posted in Business Coaching, Coaching, Resilience

Today’s affirmation: “Yes, I Will Accept What I Cannot Change And Move On” Some things – okay, many things – are out of our control.  Worrying about these consumes our energy and is totally unproductive. Learn how to leave it behind.  Put it in your hand (physically do this, go on!) and raise your hand in front of you to let someone else take it, e.g. the Universe, God, whoever you believe is bigger than you.  Give them the worry.  They can handle it.  Now take a deep breath and move on with your life and building your business.  Quickly find something constructive to take your mind off the other thing that’s out of your control.  Focus and keep refocusing on the positives, on the future, on what you CAN control. Set goals. Make progress. Move forward towards business success every day. Lisa #BusinessCoaching #ResilienceForBusinessOwners P.S. You are invited to […]

Today’s affirmation: “Yes! I Will Make Only Positive Choices In Relation To My Business This Week. Every single time.  Every time I make a business decision.  Every time I make a decision about what work I do during the day.  Every time I choose to do something myself or delegate it to my assistant.  Each of these times I will choose the best option that maximises my time.
