It’s so true that the power of your mind and your mind set is Huge. If you don’t believe in your self or invest yourself then why would others, you get out what you put in.

The power of your thoughts in your mind can carry you a very long way,or they can simply stop your from moving forward at all.

Your mindset can change at times and sometimes very rapidly. It’s important to recognise what strategies support you when this is in a negative way and what helps you become a more positive version of yourself.

Learn how to control your thoughts more when negativity starts to show, look out for the early signs, get your support strategies into action ASAP. Do what help’s keep yourself focused and on track to what you want to achieve, don’t self sabotage.

You really have the power to lead yourself to where you want to go, but you also could be the person who’s hold you back! so unlock the positive mind set you have and take on positive changes to get you to your goals.

Wondering, How to make your mind set as positive as possible to work for you, so you can make new exciting steps you want in your life, review the way in which your doing things towards your goals. Don’t get stuck in a rut, nothing motivational will come from things that don’t challenge you.

Review your steps towards your end game/goals. Make sure you’re enjoying what you’re doing still and if you’re not look at other ways you can achieve the same steps but in a way that is more motivational, fun and inspiring for you to go forward.

Mind, Set, Go….


Meaningful, make sure the goal means something to you, that you want this! That this is for you and not for others or to please them or anyone else. The more meaningful the goal is the more drive, determination and passion you will have in doing this and seeing it through.


Interesting, make sure it’s something that you want to do that pushes you to smash out side comfort Zone, make it exciting, full of new things to learn, take part of /do and of course choose the way that you feel is the most positively challenging for you. If the steps aren’t inspiring you look at alternative ones you can still take to get to your end goal, different steps still leading to the same outcome and your goal.


Nothing stopping you, you know the steps you need to take, plan, prepare and show up. Make things happen, remember every small step counts towards the bigger picture and goal’s you have. Go to bed knowing what you have planned for tomorrow. From exercise plans, to food prep and menus, activities, tasks, to-do lists etc be organised and plan to succeed not to fail.


Determination, keep yourself motivated, surrounded yourself with positive things, people and log the steps you have made, read, watch and listen to things and people that inspires you to keep going. Watch Blogs of the journey others are taking and have took from start to finish to make their goals happen, let them inspire you, show you that they didn’t give up, showing you evidence, you too can do this! Like they did.


Start, set a date and make it happen.the first step is always the hardest. Write it down Mark it on the calendar or diary, the day I made my life change for the better (tomorrow) why wait!


End game, keep your end game clear in your mind, what it is that you want! every time you find it hard, that you’re losing your willpower, remember why your doing this, let the thoughts of your end game push you forward and trough the tough times. Imagine and try to visualise the end,how you will feel being at this point, where you wanted to be and how good that will feel and look. What other opportunities will this then create for you?


Train, train, train. Learn what you need to do to achieve what you have set out to do, build yourself up along the way with the discipline you need to support this goal and all the steps you take. Learn, evolve, develop, conquer, achieve, eat, sleep repeat.

Make Goals with “HEART “

One of the first big goals I set was wanting to complete a 5 k run. I was a non-runner at the time, so I had to make sure I did things to break the goal down, and be sensible with where I was at in terms of fitness levels; what time I could give to the training involved, especially around my life commitments. My tip would also be to set stages/steps and find ways to monitor progress.  

I found using a running App a great way for this type of goal and tracking my progress.  I also liked watching others, such as lifestyle bloggers who had used the same App for a 5k training program.  Seeing how they found their journey with the training they set for themselves (goals steps), and it gave me inspiration and the motivation to complete my own steps that lead me to my main goal “run 5k”.   I was so excited because the first ever 5k I ran was for a charity that’s close to my heart so this goal supported  my core values.  What  was also great was with something physical you can feel and see the results!  So I knew when I had reached it as it was measurable.  I also was lucky to be given a little keepsake medal for achieving it. This is great visual evidence of a goal being met!   Every time I see it I am reminded of where I started and how far I have come!  My goal was set with HEART which is a coaching model which helps you set your goals with all your true values and abilities in mind; with the basis around making small manageable steps to get your goals (particularly larger goals), achieved.  I recommend both the coach to 5k App and “virtual runner” for charity runs as they allow anyone of any ability to complete various running tasks, steps, races etc.



The HEART Model

The Heart Model is great to look at for personal development coaching when setting goals.   I like to use it with clients. An example of some of the model is below.

Honest: Is the goal right for you?  Does it fit with your core values and beliefs?

Exact: What will you exactly need to accomplish your goals?  What steps do you need to take?

Authentic:  Is the goal consistent with your values?  Does it reflect what you really want?

Realistic:  Is the goal realistic, do you have the time, energy, and motivation to complete this goal?

Timely:  What is the deadline for this goal?  How long will each step take?  By when will you accomplish these steps?
