Most of us want a better life, but sometimes we really don’t know where to start.
By following these 10 steps you will find your life will begin to feel instantly uplifted.
Learning to love yourself and accepting all the good things about “you” is one of the most important things you can do. Treat yourself like you would someone that you love and adore. Practise self-care more often and you will soon become more loving towards yourself. You really can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself first.

LIVE IN THE PRESENT MOMENT
Forget about living in the past and focusing on all the shit that has happened. I do understand that some people have had horrific things happen to them and I am not saying that you can just turn these memories off at will.
When I left a violent relationship in 1995 it took me a long time to heal the inner scars. The memories were so vivid in my head it felt like I was back there being beaten and ridiculed. Gradually though, the memories started to fade and I was able to move forward with my life. Don’t get me wrong, I still remember those difficult times but I won’t let myself dwell on them anymore. They are in my past and I can do nothing to change that and I know that they cannot hurt me anymore.
I try to live in the present as much as I can and I have taken up meditation to help me focus on the “now” and it is really helping.
CREATE A SUPPORT NETWORK OF POSITIVE, UPLIFTING PEOPLE
The worst thing you can do is to surround yourself with negative and pessimistic people. These people will only drag you down and cause you to attract more of the same towards you. I understand that some family members fit into this category and there really is nothing you can do but to minimise the exposure you have with them.
Find people who make you feel good about yourself, people who make you laugh, people who pick you up when you are feeling down and genuinely love you just the way you are.
I have created a great network of friends over the years and I know if I need a good pick me up, I can call one of them and have a good chat.
FIND A LIFE COACH
I have had a few different life coaches over the years and it has been money well spent. I have had the help of a health coach, a mindset coach, and to this day I have an awesome business coach.
All you have to do is find the right one for you. I offer free strategy calls for women to get to know me and how I work and also for me to get to know them a little better. Sometimes what I offer is not right for them but most of the time it is.

KEEP IMPROVING YOURSELF
I am constantly improving myself with books, workshops, movies, you name it, and if it will improve my whole being, then I will have either done it or want to do it.
My top three books at the moment are:
- Get rich lucky bitch by Denise Duffield-Thomas
- Money-a love story by kate Northrup
- Good vibes, good life by Vex King
My top three feel-good movies at the moment are:
- Eat pray love
- The secret
FEEL THE FEAR AND DO IT ANYWAY
Who hasn’t heard that saying? I first read the book “Feel the fear and do it anyway” by Susan Jeffers, 20 years ago and it is a book that I love to read over and over again: each time I read it I learn something new.
Do those things that seem scary to you. Turn your hobby into a business, go on that first date, move to a new town, accept that high paying job. Once you start doing new things that step you out of your comfort zone, it becomes easier, I promise.
DON’T WORRY WHAT OTHERS THINK
Ever heard the saying: “what others think about you is none of your business”?
I totally agree with this. Let them think what they think. It has nothing to do with them or you anyway. Some of the time they aren’t even thinking about you anyway and if they are it is just plain jealousy. But you don’t surround yourself with those sort of people anyway, Do you?
CREATE SOME BIG AUDACIOUS GOALS
All those wishes and dreams that are crowded in your head won’t become a reality if you don’t take action.
Why not invest in a vision board creation workshop run by me (of course). Together we can dive deep into the goals you want to work on. I have a special offer on at the moment for the first 10 women to sign up with the link below. They will get it at just £49.99. Just give that button a push and you are ready to go.
In the workshop, you will be guided through a 1:1 session on how to create a visual representation of all your wishes, dreams and desires
TAKE THE STEPS NEEDED TO TURN YOUR GOALS INTO REALITY
It is no use just creating the goals. You have to put a little effort into getting closer to them. This means that you have to take the necessary steps each day to move you closer to realising them.
With the vision board creation workshop I mentioned above, you get a follow-up, 1:1 session that will help you create those steps.
DON’T GIVE UP
Have you heard the story of the man who was mining for gold? He was getting fed up of all that digging and not striking any gold. He gave up, downed tools and went home. His workmate picked up his tools and started hitting the rocks were the man had left and with one strike hit a huge gold nugget.
This could be you giving up on your dreams when the opportunity was just one step away or just around the corner. Keep going. You will reach it if you believe in yourself.
Never give up on those dreams, have faith in yourself and turn them into a glorious reality.
