The Need for Love

The Need of Love in difficult situations. How does this work? Love should never have to be a choice. But when it comes to difficult situations like the choice between you, your husband or your children what happens then? Well they cannot take care of themselves, they are apart of you and it’s your job to look after them, you have a duty of care of them because they are not adults, you are the one to make empowered decisions and choices on their behalf. What happens when they grow up? How would that leave your relationship with partner? It is...

I have had several people recently tell me in their own unique ways that they felt something like a bouncing ball in life. Trying to juggle work, school, health and family responsibilities can be overwhelming, leaving someone to feel out of balance, disconnected and unfocused. Many of us can get caught up in busy and active lives. We start treading water and just surviving rather than making purposeful choices and actions with ourselves and others. This can be slippery slope in any relationship. I think it’s important to take a quick...

So what is coaching exactly?

What is coaching? Coaching is the practice of supporting, challenging and empowering an individual or group/team through the process of achieving a specific personal or professional result via cutting edge strategies and change techniques. It is distinct from training and mentoring, in that the coach/client relationship is one of trust, accountability and responsiveness. Training is teaching an individual or group how to achieve a result by imparting practical skills and knowledge that relate to specific useful competencies, while mentoring is...

The Trust Account

The Trust Account

In many relationships there is an accounting – what you do for me vs what I do for you. Whenever there is a surplus on one side, there is often a deficit on the other. The play of relationship will then be to get these sides into equilibrium. Along the way, there may be unhappiness, arguments, stone-walling, or even worse, a state of complete indifference. How did we get to this? In every relationship there is also a Trust Account. At the beginning of most passionate relationships the Trust Account will be full. But over time –...

I love shopping! I don’t care what it is, I’ll offer to help my friends shop. Need a car? Oh, let me go online and research for you! Need to find the perfect dress? Please, let me go with you! Yes, I love to shop! Shopping for a coach? Well, maybe not so much.  But, I look at this this way…. When it comes to choosing a life coach, finding the right one for you is like finding the right running shoes. Sometimes, off and running, you find a pair that fit just right.  But, sometimes you have to try on a couple pair and...

Does your child have good marks at school?

Does your child have good marks at school?

A friend of mine was telling me about her son the other day. He had this science test at school and she felt that he was not preparing for it as he should be. He took his test and had pretty decent marks. He received 17,5 on a twenty marks test. Plus, for that school’s standards, this wasn’t that easy to achieve. When he announced his results to his mum, she told him in a friendly and joking way: “Well, if you got that result without learning anything, just imagine what you could have had, had you worked a little bit harder!” When she...

  What is your reaction when an injustice occurs? Do you react, submit or strategize an effective action? *** Unwashed for weeks, the woman is physically strong and lustful. She steps into the shower at Green Hotel in Peshawar with her Afghani warrior. Layers of red dirt stream down their bodies. Mouthfuls of water splash into their kisses. The force and pulsation of unbounded energy melds them into ONE. A knock at the door, the hotel manager enraged throws the Moujahadeen out of the hotel. “Not allowed,” he yells. Stunned the...

How a legal principle can be your guide to a better life

I know. Sexy and enticing title! Bear with me, this might actually help you see things in a new way. A lifetime ago, I was a law student. A rather unsuccessful one, but a law student nonetheless. I don’t remember much from that time. To be accurate, only two things have stuck with me over the years. The first, is an almost crippling fear of the word contract. Mention it once and see me run to the opposite direction. The second is one of the most basic legal principles in civil law systems. The principle simply states: Nullum crimen, nulla...

Choose your standards, choose your life

Choose your standards, choose your life

Everybody has a standard and everybody has the highest standard. Right! Most of us live according to our standard. Our standard in our finances, our relationships, our health and fitness and what we put into our body every day etc. This standard is often unconscious but it is certainly programmed deep within us. We learned them from our parents, our friends in school, the media etc. This standard determines what we expect and what we do. An example of a standard at work is when someone that never had money all of a sudden wins the lottery....
