To achieve change and success it is vital to have a purpose or a desired outcome; to establish where you are now in life and where you want to be in the future. Many people don’t consciously plan for what they want in the future and may meander aimlessly through life.
Though if you really want to progress at some level of your life you’d be wise to have a construct in your mind of what that would be for you.
So, know your outcome: What is it that you really, really want to achieve?
What are you passionate about?
What is it in life that’s important to you? It might be a personal thing; it might be to improve your relationship; it might be to have a better career; it might be to improve your financial situation; it might be to have more spare time on your hands. Whatever it is for you, be very clear and very specific about what it is you want – what is success to you?

If there is a part of you that’s wondering about your legacy to this world, the very fortunate thing for humanity is that you are not alone.
World Vision, Brazil
The world is full of amazing, resourceful, giving people who find a sense of purpose in giving back and making a difference to their world. Their contribution may be large or small; it may be financial or in-kind; it may change the life of one person, or the lives of many; it can be fleeting or have long-lasting effects. Whatever the contribution, it changes lives.
Contribution is one of our human needs and can provide a sense of serving a greater purpose. Where contribution is one of someone’s highest human needs, one might feel incomplete without going beyond one’s own needs and giving to someone or something beyond themselves. The spiritual bond of giving beyond oneself provides a sense of connection, thus meeting another human need. It may also fulfil the human needs for certainty, significance, variety and growth.
I love that I get to share time with so many inspiring people and to hear wonderful stories about their unique legacies. And I am just so fortunate to be in my own business where the very essence of my work is about helping others to a greater level of empowerment.

Just what is NLP? Here’s a snapshot
You’ve likely heard about it. You might even be curious about what it can do for you. NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programing and it’s one of the amazing tools I have in my coaching toolbox.
NLP explores the relationships between how we think (neuro), how we communicate (linguistic) and our patterns of behaviour and emotion (programs).
NLP allows us to study of how we structure our thinking, how we react to our environment, how we experience situations that we encounter, as well as how we communicate to others and ourselves. With the use of NLP we can map our thinking, behaviour and communication and the strategies behind them.
