Back from a short break in Brittany, it made me realise how taking a break is essential. I needed to rest, relax, reflect and be on my own to recharge my batteries. Any woman should give her permission to look truly after herself. It’s a question of self-care, self-love and respect.
Additionally it is a fantastic booster because your motivation is jumping in your face, the why of doing so much, thinking so much and attain milestones without even seeing it…and it pushed you to slow down, to pause, to reflect. Your body, mind, soul are craving to have these moments, these present moments to re-calibrate, to question yourselves without judgement, to realise your achievements and where you are in your journey.
Despite the frenzied pace of our world, we have this choice. This ability to consciously make a decision to shift our attitude, embrace a positive mindset to perceive solutions, ideas you never thought previously.
This is an ongoing practice that honestly, I love because I see people transforming in front of me, feeling good, reassured and confident that they can find the solutions by themselves. The light in their eyes when they have this lightbulb moment is priceless.
I attended a Coaching training for Performance that confirmed to me, once again that inspiring, motivating and empowering people is my passion. Guiding people to think different is like magic for me and everyone deserve it. We all deserve to create a life we love.
We have been advised for ages by our parents, relatives and grandparents that working hard is key to make our dreams come true.
To make our vision a reality, we have to agree that we need to generate a lot of energy to move things in the direction we want but deep down , is it really physically hard to make our dreams come true ? I don’t think so or depending of your goal. If you want to lose weight or have a toned and fit body, yes it is unsurprisingly that you are going to work, physically working hard. We all agree on this point.
But what about the other goals ? like creating your own business, travel around the world, being an artist or write a book, yes what about these kind of goals ? From my point of view, if you really believe in your vision and passionately want to make it true, this is not hard work, this is not a task or a job, THIS is crafting your future, make your passion your purpose in life, add meaning in your life by excelling at something to help people.
Being an expert in your subject will come with consistency and practice. More you will practice and more you will be good at it. Use the power of practice and consistency to create an habit beneficial for you.
Being gritty (blend of perseverance and passion) is essential to brush off the no, the negative comments or judgements and create what you want to see and have in your life. It is much more inspiring and motivating to wake up everyday to develop your passion than thinking working hard.
Your motivation lies in the words we are using. Think passion, grit, purpose and you will have a spring in your step to get closer to your dreams. Think contacts, ideas, opportunities and you will continue to work on your passion relentlessly until your dream will become reality. You can do it.

I finished to read Grit from Angela Duckworth. If you are looking to boost your motivation, develop your perseverance, understand the mechanisms, the spirit behind any achievement, I can’t recommend you enough to read this book. It is purely an explanation of the journey taken by Angela to understand how we can nourish our perseverance and passion in order to become a master in grit. It is also a life changing book delving into the psychology of achievement and a real discovery and an intellectual asset if you aim to reach your goals.
There are different ways to boost your grit by dedication, deliberate practice, support and affirmation. It is not only learn how to self grow but also an enjoyable read to see that Angela also at times struggled to find her path and didn’t give up. It is also a fantastic discovery to help students be more gritty, keen to learn and succeed in their studies.
If you are looking to deepen your perseverance and your mindset, this book is a must read for you.

1st March 2017. Did you see the last months pass ? Me, to be honest, not at all. And it is always like that with January and February, you just start to make small changes to your life, to have new ideas to make your life easier that March is knocking on your door. Sign that our fellow guy Winter won’t stay too long (hopefully) and that Spring is around the corner, slow awakening of the nature around us.
This time, I think it’s time to embrace the vibes of this new month, to reflect on our goals, where we want to go and set up a strategy plan to reach our goals. It is a time to feeling energised, refreshed, invigorated, in a nutshell to wake up our mind and body and work to remain upbeat, happy and positive. Yes, working relentlessly to change our mindset, to emphasize the positive, learn from your mistakes, aim and rise high because we all can do it. If we put our mind to do it.
And after a break from fitness due to an injury in my neck completely healed now, I am looking forward to go back in the game to move my body, workout, sweat and feeling like a million bucks thanks to these endorphins ! So, if like me, you are motivated to be the best version of yourself and break a sweat 3,4 or 5 times per week, trust me, I will be your best cheerleader !!

I’m not single and I am not going to celebrate Valentine’s Day today. Why ? because love should be celebrated daily, not just particularly on the 14th February. Today I want to inspire you to love, love yourself, take the time to pamper yourself and to look only after you. To all the single women and men, today do something different, crazy, risky to mark this day as the day to differentiate yourself and do something extraordinary for you, just for you without guilt, hesitation or overanalysis.
To all the single working mums, you are the wonderwomen of our time and I am amazed by your strength, passion and resilience to raise children on your own. To all of you, celebrate self love to always bring the best for your bundle of joy and loved ones. Today is the day where I forgot Mr Valentine to focus on my bundle of joy because she woke up at dawn and needed to be cuddled by her mummy to face the day. She is now sleeping peacefully and this is the reason why I can write this post right now.
This time forget about Mr Valentine and celebrate today as a day for pure self-love.

We all noticed more than ever that we are living in a fast paced, frenetic world. Sometimes, we feel at the top of our game, sometimes we are bloody struggling to finish the day with the astronomical deadlines and things we need to do in one day. Since then, emerged a movement to counteract the disastrous effects of the pace imposed by our society : insane productivity. Yes, a movement created by people like us burn out, depressed or as simple as it is sick as hell and fighting to find a sense to their life. These persons are showing us everyday that you can set up your own pace if you want to by perseverance, hard work and passion. This is the era of a growing surge of entrepreneurs, determined to create their happiness on their own terms.
More I am waking up everyday to write on my blog, more I am determined to continue each day. Why ? Because I love being able to express my feelings, explore new ideas, discover quality products/services able to empower us and making a real difference to our life. It’s time to take the lead, being the actor of our life and reject this attitude of victimisation used by so many of us to justify your unhappiness.
It never occurred to me until now that, maybe, surely being an entrepreneur is the solution to bring quality, authenticity to our life because we all have to admit is hard core. Hard core to be challenged everyday, to be relentless, perseverant isn’t it ? But this is LIFE. A life this time for which you will have more power because you will be the one each day to change it, passionately, actively and relentlessly… and if you are like me up for challenges, learning everyday and meeting along your journey new people, then you find your calling : Do what you are loving and become an entrepreneur. Slowly, strategically but surely. Every day, we are what we repeatedly do. Work passionately to be what you want to be. Quality ? Authenticity ? For a better life ? Oh yes, we all can do it !

I am intrigued by this book because at the time where we will soon reflect on this year, I like to know that reaching my goals is part of a continuous work to be determined, perseverant and consistent. Added to that your passion and you have the ingredients to thrive despite all the roadblocks which will try to demotivate you. I like the idea to explore and identify the rationale behind our goals, to know what it is helping us to use most of our potential, unlock it and pursue with clarity our dreams.
This is a book I will read because it will guide me, once again to re-align my thoughts and reach my goals with time and grit. I will, of course, keep you in the loop to confirm whether this book help me to empower myself.
