Not following your dream and continuing to live in an unfulfilled existence, can this cause physical issues?

Yes, we call it the silent health risk. Do your feet hurt, is your back aching, are your eyes burning? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it would be fair to conclude that you have a burning desire to move forward in life and fear of the unknown is holding you back and keeping you from moving forward freely in life.

What is a Mantra (and how do I create my own mantra?)

A mantra is a very personal and positively powerful tool. Create your own and delight in the empowerment it brings as you take the next step in your journey of life. Take a moment to listen to your soul, the voice in your head that repeatedly says, “I deserve better, I am worth more, I can do better, I’d rather be somewhere else being of better service, I am…” Write down all the words that truly express who you are and you’ll be able to create your own mantra.

Why do you believe the mantra “I Am” to be so important?

These two words claim your identity, your truth, and your faith in yourself. Starting with anything else, is also what you will experience. For example, if you chose to start with “I wish” or “I want” you will only ever experience the wishing and wanting of what you desire to experience, and soon you will become frustrated with your mantra, and more than likely give it up. “I am” empowers “I become” and soon enough you are living all that you deserve and desire to experience in life.

What inspires you?

Sometimes a song inspires us to succeed. Many songs have pulled me through difficult times, empowered me to change myself, to believe in myself and to honour my self worth. “Life is Just What You Make It,” “I Am Woman,” “We Are The World,” “I Run,” “Tomorrow,”” “I’m Walkin’ On Sunshine;” these are the titles of some of the songs that have inspired me to create changes in myself, accept responsibility for myself, and to experience how positive thinking brings about positive results. I’m sure you also light up when you here a song that helped you through a challenging time in your life. There are numerous, amazing upbeat songs that drive us to run faster or work harder and achieve our goals. These too are powerful tools.
