A Dose of Inspiration To Get You Moving...

Have you ever felt immense sadness or an incredibly painful emotion that you wished would go away? In this very sad and poignant video, comedian and TV presenter Ellen Degeneres had what many of us would describe as our worst nightmare - literally come true. After having a fight with her partner, she drove past a car accident later that night, only to find shortly afterwards that her partner had died in that very car accident. As I'm sure you can imagine, she was overcome by guilt.
Ellen Degeneres further explains in this video ... how the only thing she could think of doing to deal with this pain - was to have a telephone conversation with God....Given she couldn't do that, the next best thing was to write to him.
Often you will find that many legends use writing... in the form of a journal, as a way of helping them deal with the emotional impact of difficult life situations. By writing out their emotions and thoughts, they can create 'mental space' - so as to look at things objectively, and ensure that they don't create emotional and mental blockages within themselves. This helps them develop more clarity around their challenges, thus allowing them to make more effective decisions.

I am passionate about fulfilling my potential in life and helping others to do the same, so that we can all make a difference to society. I’ve learnt that fulfilment comes from pursuing a goal that is greater than my own ambitions and having a real purpose.
I originally qualified as a Chartered Accountant but it was helping people through entrepreneurship and career development, rather than doing the numbers when I really came started to enjoy myself. I have found that we aren’t taught as youngsters how to deal with challenging life situations and so there are many people that on the “outside” are fine, but “inside” really struggle.
