I’ve been hearing this phrase a lot lately and it’s true. Real-world heroes are more ordinary than extraordinary.
They are just like you and me.
And that means that we’re capable of being our own heroes.

Hope your Valentine’s week is filled with heaps of bold gestures of love, whether you’re sharing it with a special someone or not. Remember, loving others well starts with loving “you”. That’s what heroes do!
I’ll keep this first post of January short, as we’re all busy starting the year on the right foot. :)
The new year holds many new opportunities, situations, scenarios, encounters and events. Some of these you will be familiar or comfortable with. However, there’ll be some new ones too. They might be uncomfortable. They might be scary. But guess what?
When the big idea hits – your light bulb moment – it’s often described as being a bolt from the blue.
Something unexpected. Something brilliant.
So, it’s no wonder that you may feel pressure for a major fireworks display when it comes to finding your next business idea. Or deciding how to go about making a career change. Or searching for your true purpose in life.
How to ban your worst self from the bathroom mirror, and elsewhere in your life…
It’s that time of year…
When the work pressure gets cranked to overdrive in that last minute push before the office closes … Or your home life may become a blur of extra domestic chores before the family descends, and you have a gift shopping list the length of a novel.
It’s easy to make safe choices, because they appeal to our default survival skills.
The safe option could be your meal choice, your career choice, or your sock choice.
Sometimes this is a good thing. We don’t want to get sick from eating shellfish before a big meeting. We want to know we can support ourselves with the work we do. And we want to look and feel good about our appearance while we’re doing it.
And if someone else has made similar choices and appears to have succeeded, it might make sense to follow that same path. Right? Maybe not…
Ever feel like the way forward is proving hard to achieve?
It’s our default as human beings to seek the easiest or quickest route to achieving our goals.
Sometimes though, the path we choose doesn’t produce the results we’d hoped for. Occasionally it can seem like we’ve hit a dead end. And thinking we’ve run out of options can cause us to feel trapped and helpless.
Our beliefs about what is possible affect our actions. So, if we think it’s impossible, it will be.
