Just graduated? Time to take stock of your life and get ahead of the game!



















    'If you continue to do what you've always done. You will keep getting what you've always got' Zig Ziglar

    If you've just graduated this summer firstly congratulations! What an amazing achievement and what a great opportunity for you to get the life you really want. You're in a unique position to take stock of what you want from life, decide where you want to be, and what you need to get there.

    It amazes me how many people fail to invest in themselves even though our life and our future is the most precious commodity we have. For those of us who are parents we see our children as the most precious of things but without investment in ourselves, our children will repeat our mistakes, take on our self-limiting beliefs and may not reach their true potential. An investment in ourselves is an investment that will add value and improve not only our lives but those of our family and those most precious to us.

    If you are a newly qualified Graduate, you may not yet know what you want to do, and why should you? Some individuals may have a clear idea or goal of what they want from life but most often, they are the minority, the majority struggle to be clear in their thinking, they question their decisions and procrastinate for a number of different reasons. Thus begins a cycle of self-limiting thoughts and behaviours that prevent you from reaching our true potential and achieving the life we really want.

    Get ahead of the game. Coaching can help you discover who you are, what you’re good at, where you want to be in your life, and how to get there. It will give you the confidence, self-belief and life skills that will differentiate you from the rest and give you a head start in life.

    A few tips for success

    • Everyone has the power to change things in an instant.
    • All the resources we need to achieve what we want are within us.
    • For changes to be of any value, they have to be lasting and consistent.
    • Raise your standards
    • Change your limiting beliefs
    • Change your strategy
    • Remember almost everything we do is to change the way we feel.
    • Most often we do not look at ourselves as the solution to our challenges.
    • We turn to short-term fixes that are often outside our control and use them as an excuse if we fail.

    Can you truly say that you wake up each day in a positive frame of mind, that you take time to reflect and appreciate the good things?  How often do you use lack of time as an excuse to not do something?  This is not about just time management, it’s about making decisions that will lead you towards your goal.  Life coaching helps you to be confident in your decisions and look beyond short term gratification. Often people allow their decisions to be dictated by their environment/circumstances instead by their own values.


    1. Life coaching helps with decisions about WHAT to focus on.

    2. It helps with understanding  what things mean to you and HOW IMPORTANT they are to you.

    3. You learn what decisions you need to make and how to do it to create the RESULT you want.

    Explaining Life Coaching



    “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream” – Mark Twain


    Why is it that so often we fail to properly invest in our life when it is the most precious commodity we have? Many of us take for granted our health and perhaps try to make some effort to maintain well-being but do we on the whole properly invest in ourselves so that we are able to be truly content in all aspects of our lives? Are we achieving our goals big and small, or are we cruising along convincing ourselves that things are OK whilst we continue to feel frustrated or stuck?  Many of us continually strive  for improvement whether it’s our diet, relationships, career or need for financial security but sometimes our lack confidence or self-belief prevents us from achieving our goals and reaching our true potential.  If we can’t figure out why we behave and think in certain ways we lose heart and don’t have sufficient conviction to keep going.

    Life coaching is something that intrigues people because they are not certain what it involves and sometimes confuse it with therapy or counselling.

    Why should it intrigue people so much? Sports professionals are coached in sports and exercise to achieve optimum fitness. If you want to excel in a particular subject at school or college you might be coached by a professional to help you improve or to get you through an exam. In the same way, a Life Coach is a trained professional who coaches individuals who want to improve or excel in some or all aspects of their life.

    Life coaching is about moving forward in your life and helping to achieve your goals and dreams. It is about rediscovering who you are, understanding your values and belief systems and how these were formed and the impact these have on your every-day life. We look forward not backward and help you to identify what YOU really want out of life, we help you define your goals, put strategies in place to help achieve them and provide support, motivation and focus to help you get there.

    Like any form of change, it’s a path that is not always easy and the key to success is taking responsibility for yourself. But the process is fun, stimulating and exciting. After each session you move forward with increased confidence, self-belief and motivation. Self-limiting thoughts and behaviour fall into the background and when you do find yourself having self-limiting thoughts, you don’t blindly follow them but have greater awareness and confidence to follow the path to get you where you want to be.

    Life coaching is an investment in yourself which has lasting results and consequences. As life coaches we don’t profess to have all the answers nor do we wave a magic wand and make everything perfect. There are no secrets or short-cuts to a better YOU but there is a better way to get there!
