Journalist enquiry from Rachel Miles for a feature in womens magazines
Could you please expand on the ideas you put across in your last email, that we can change our situation at any time we choose to?
How is this possible / what steps can we take?
People always have choices and they choose to behave in a certain way depending on what is important to them, or what is easiest. Sometimes it is easier for people to not change their situation because they do not want to be accountable or want to change, but instead prefer to remain a victim of circumstances because it is easier and convenient to blame others and things for their own unhappiness, which actually is brought on by their own self-esteem issues.
If people think in terms of them being responsible for their own happiness they can take positive steps to change their situation.
I can provide advice of how to, and offer a step by step guidance to actually, take charge of their lives in order to have a much happier fulfilling one.
A lot of money problems negotiate feelings of fear. In the recession people are enduring mass uncertainty, how does this impact on self esteem?
Even though there may be a recession and uncertainty and money worries, I feel people really need to focus on what is really important and seek help to deal with stress and uncertainty of their career, their future, their finances and business profitability. By reviewing and exploring all their options with me, they can find the best way forward and also improve their self esteem.
Does fear have a big impact on happiness?
Fear is one thing that does affect happiness often it is the fear of discovering your true self and your capabilities. The only thing that holds one back from finding happiness is themselves. I empower people to overcome their own fears and realise just how important they are and how easy it is to be happy.
Do you believe that positive attitudes and reinforcements can affect people's happiness? Is our happiness dictated more by our thoughts or events?
Yes I do believe that positive attitudes and reinforcements can affect people’s happiness. Happiness is dictated by our thoughts. I can show you how to think in more positive ways so that events have little impact on your state of mind as you become more accepting to events and also open to learning you will be able to make most of any situation.
This divorce rate is the lowest recorded since 1981. Could there really be an outbreak of happy marriages, or have people become focused on protecting what they already have?
My belief on this is probably a culmination of different factors may have contributed to this, and yes people will be having happier marriages with life coaching and people will be focused on protecting what they already have. It could also be that, there have not been a lot of marriages too, as people may be afraid to make the commitments that marriage requires. However I give guidance on how people can have successful marriages and relationships and also how to find partners who will be committed to make the relationships work, with focus on long term success.
Why could people want more stability / companionship in the time of a recession?
We live in an unpredictable fast-paced world. People want to feel safe and secure and if we don't watch out, it's easy to go through life without establishing long-term goals and values to guide us. Our society seems to stress the importance of short-term results. It's easier to think about the upcoming weekend than it is your long-term future. I can guide you to consider what is important by setting goals for the short term, medium term and long term. I believe it is important in the recession for you to consider long term stability for securing future happiness in the here and now for the rest of your life.
Unfortunate life events - ie. redundancy - can impact on people's confidence. How would this sudden drop in confidence affect a relationship? Can positive approaches help build our confidence again?
Unfortunate life events such as redundancy do have an impact on people’s confidence which can affect relationships and it is very important for people to seek help and support. Having self confidence and building up your confidence levels is vitally important in maintaining a good relationship. Positive approaches will build up confidence levels and I can show you how.
