Is fear blocking you?

When I look at my children all I can see is limitless potential. I can see everything they are going to be. But the thing that’s going to stop them, the one thing that’s going to stop them “becoming” who they’re meant to be and what they’re here for, is really simple…it’s fear. Fear. All fear is, when we break it down, it’s just a thought! Where does fear come from, what causes fear? It’s a thought that we’re not good enough. It’s a thought that I’m not worthy, it’s a thought that it’ll ever happen for me, its a thought that it can happen for her but it’s not for me. All of these fears and judgements are things from our childhood and trapped emotions, from thought processes that we have had from childhood. Is this the mindset that you want for yourself and for your children?

How can I relax and enjoy parenting?

How can I relax and enjoy parenting?


Can you imagine what kind of world we could live in if every single time we were an observer of our thoughts and instead of choosing negative things we chose to think about joy, about acceptance, about love?

Let's talk about procrastination, hands up who loves to procrastinate like me, like to the point I will do so many other things and I will literally start scheduling things into my diary when I have a really important deadline coming up? Really, do you do that? Why? Because we have a thought or belief system running in the background, “You’re not good enough, because that's not gonna be any good, you’re not gonna make it”, or when people laugh at us.

 

 

All of these stories, these thoughts that we are choosing to think, Now I know that we did not learn the gift of flight by thinking about sinking, you don't learn how to swim by thinking about drowning, am I right? 

Our brain has this real negative...

Changing negative thought patterns and limiting beliefs

 

Change negative thoughts to positive 

Today I want to talk about negative patterns of thinking , our responsibility and choices. How to change negative thinking, blocks, and limiting beliefs and be a calm and happy parent, how to break bad habits without yelling. It’s about choice, it's something I’ve been digging into this week with my own growth. It blows my mind how many choices we have. The choices that we have, that we have the opportunity to get to make, the choices that we don’t get to make, and sometimes the choices we’re procrastinating on or avoiding.

What are the choices that I’m not taking, where are the opportunities that I have, what are the choices that I’m avoiding, and what’s going on with me underneath that? If you’ve been in my space for a while you’ll know I like to dig into things.

It’s always about the thoughts, and what thoughts do we sometimes not take responsibility for. I know that if...

Confidence is knowing mistakes are part of the learning process

Want to know how to boost your child’s confidence? Show them that failure and making mistakes are just a part of the learning process, and you will build their self esteem.

 

Do you have low self esteem based on fear of failure?

 

In my programs for building confidence in children through music, I talk a lot about building confidence through being the model not the mirror. The aim is not to reflect back but to stand in our values and model the example to our children. See this as a challenge in your life and your parenting, you can and you will rise to it!

 

  

When Freddie Mercury sang ‘We Are The Champions’ he was saying in front of the whole world what he wanted. And nothing anyone ever created or achieved was gained without failure, perseverance, self-belief and by getting up each time you fall, and going again. 


Will you make mistakes? Yes. Will you fail big time? Yes.

Do you catastrophise? Choose confidence instead!

You don’t learn to swim by thinking about drowning. You won’t build confidence by thinking about fear.

Want to know how to boost your child’s self confidence?


Focusing yours and your child’s mind on the power you hold in any given scenario is the best way to empower yourselves, and give your child a confidence boost that lasts. Are you ready to change the way you see things forever and raise a wholehearted, confident child or confident children who can live and love to their fullest expression?

 

 

 

Do you catastrophise? Do you find yourself thinking ‘what if..’ and then listing all the potential negative outcomes in your head? This just sets your mind in a loop of fear-based thinking, lacking confidence, and low self esteem.

As an adult and a parent you have a responsibility to shape your child’s mind, and to build their self-esteem, and give them the tools to continue to build their own self worth.

Our lives are based on...

Installing the belief that you are worthy

Our belief systems (which drive our thoughts, which trigger emotions, that drive behaviour) are pretty much fully formed by the time of age seven. 

What if we flip the transformation and healing model around and start from birth?

 

What if we were being hugely intentional in order to create a lens that will create a positive self-image, and make sure that positive self-worth, positive self-belief is already installed?

That's why I work with parents of under-sevens, because this is where we have the most impact.

Is fear stopping you?

 

Fear of failure is what stops us every time; fear of stepping into your genius, fear that you won't be enough, and that's what it usually comes down to each and every time. 

 




What would you do if you weren't afraid, or if you felt the fear and did it anyway? What would you do differently if you were living in your fullest expression, and how different would your life look like if you were?

What would you say to your 6 year old self?

 

When did you stop playing and getting involved in things like you did as a kid? What would be possible for you if you didn't limit yourself according to the labels, naysayers, or the boxes people try to put you in? Can you imagine what you'd be capable of if you gave yourself permission?

I invite you to think about what would have been possible for you if you hadn't allowed other people to define you. Then see how that may be showing up in your parenting. In my programmes I allow parents to show up in a way that allows them and their children to truly shine with self-belief, and believe that they are enough.

On control, and security

 

We can only control ourselves in this moment. When external circumstances change, where does your sense of security come from? When we look outside of ourselves to stuff, status, jobs, partners, for our security and innner peace...what happens when those things are no longer there?

Why Time-Outs Don't Work!

 

Do you use time-outs? In the West we're so often encouraged to use these, and to leave our children to cry...we can seem almost 'anti-child' in some ways!

The connection and relationship that you have with your child is central to their emotional and psychological wellbeing. The biggest gift you'll ever give your child is your presence and connection.
