Over the last 25 years I have continuously invested in myself because I realised that if I wanted to change my life, I had to change. Two divorces later, I thought that’s it something radical required. At that very point, a friend gave be a book called ‘Awaken the Giant Within’ by Anthony Robbins, she kind of threw if at me and said ‘read that!’  Shortly after I was trotting up to London with 8000 other people doing a fire walk with Anthony Robbins.  I have to say, I never, ever looked back again.  It was amazing, you could feel everyone’s excitement as he prepared to get us in the right state of mind, the whole place was vibrating with positive energy.

Now, what he taught us was that you get what you focus on, so if you focus on burning your feet and going up in flames in the middle, you may well get that….however, if you focus on cool moss, and look right where you are going, you will hop off the path completely in tact.  Don’t look down was the other tip as that will take your mind down into the fire and you will burn your feet, so, just march, don’t run and stay strong and focused.  Well, out of the 8000, I did not hear of anyone burning their feet, I certainly did not, and neither did any of my girlfriends that were with me. That was the beginning of the transformation for me as I worked more and more on myself I realised that you really do get what you focus on.  If you keep thinking that your client booking list is empty then it will be, if you focus on filling it, you will!  I know it sounds easy, but it is true.  Once you focus on something that you want in your life, you will start getting signs from your intuition that you need to do this or that….Be brave and go for it!
