"Thanks Nicola! You really show true care for us all and put so much into the programme for such outstanding value. A true inspiration of what we can all achieve in life if we keep moving forward and developing." Sue
It’s that familiar feeling
That pit in your stomach
The tightness in your chest
The feeling something is out of your reach
It’s that familiar phrase
Those words that tumble out of your mouth
That once put out there can never be unspoken.
It’s that It belief that crushes you
That keeps you small and after a while you actually start to believe it.
But here’s the thing.
It’s just a belief.
It’s not the truth.
You have the power and the ability to change this.
The question is are you ready to?
Do you want to?
Or are you happy telling yourself that same old story.
That you’ve never be able to to that thing, chase that dream, be the person you really want to be.
Go on - step into the brave.
Let me explain...
"This is ME"
‘This is me’. Three words which literally have been the most important I have ever said out loud. Why? Because it meant I had overcome a disease that had crushed and paralysed me for years and manifested in a side effect called ‘self-doubt’. I believe that many of us are either suffering as I did or are in recovery from ‘I’m not enough syndrome’.
You see, I thought it was just me but it isn’t. I know that now and it feels so comforting to recognise this and be able to help others live a fuller life.
I danced with the comparison gremlin for years; lying awake at night feeling like I couldn’t carry on with certain aspects of my life because I didn’t make the grade, wouldn’t be good enough, and would be judged or criticised. I used to gaze out of the window a lot wondering how life could be different.
Do you speak to yourself like someone you love? I know I didn’t. I felt I was useless, needed to fade into the background, made choices based on what others wanted and had no real purpose in life.
What I know now and wish I knew then was that so many of us say this phrase — perhaps not out loud or admit it to others but we all say it.
I was done with dressing all in black, hiding in the background and doing things in life solely because that’s what I felt people wanted me to do. I was done with letting other people’s successes determine what I should strive for and berating myself when my own life journey offered something different.
My a-ha moment was that I had a choice. I wanted to make my own choices that resonated with me.
I decided from that day choices were for me. I wanted to be proud of my existence and set myself free from this chrysalis of self doubt, disconnection and lack of self love. Suddenly there was a whole new world to explore. When I let go of the comparison gremlin in my head I realised that I was an individual. When I let go of this I started to enjoy and embrace my own journey. It felt so empowering.
How many social media posts a day have you looked at and thought: Why can’t I be like that? We start questioning our why and say statements such as ‘Who am I to succeed like that?’, ‘Who am I to deserve to be happy?’ and ‘I could never achieve…’. I know I did.
💗 It’s time to put you first – it’s not selfish – it’s selfFIRST
💗 It’s about valuing YOU as your own person
💗 It’s time to channel self-love, self-respect and self-belief and live your life to the full

Crazy to do lists I’ll never keep
Worrying over things I can’t control
My limiting beliefs that tell me I can’t be or achieve what I want to
Fear of failure, getting it wrong, or of making the wrong decision
The need for certainty and to control everything I am and do

Being mindful in every experience

I have chosen this amount as I want to make the programme as accessible to as many as need it and because the numbers keep speaking to me. The 3’s together is said to represent a space for confidence, sense of self and the powerhouse within you. This is what this programme is all about.
Additionally you can sign up to:
Weekly group coaching webinar (£20 per webinar) on Tuesday nights at 7.30pm or Friday morning's at 9.30am. I will be sharing concepts and ideas to continue your momentum and share techniques to value your worth and keep taking action.

The more I look back on the Simply the Best the more I realise how brilliant the programme was, and how many tools you provided and how much I learnt from it. You created a space people where we were having conversations and encouraging each other even though most of us were complete strangers. For me personally its opened so many doors as to how I could feel. I am also proud to say it really was Simply the Best. Helen
