To raise brave girls, encourage adventure

This is an am amazing talk from Caroline on the power of bravery in girls. She was the 15th woman in fire station of 1,500 men.
Caroline talks about the importance of risky play in young girls as is encouraged  in boys.
She notices girls are often taught to be timid and afraid of risk. This can play out in later life as women who don’t speak out, use defrance to be liked and lack of self confidence.
Risky play on the other hand is good for all kids. This develops valuable life skills of hazard assessment, delayed gratification , resilience,  confidence trust in  your decisions.
Now don’t get me wrong fear is a useful emotion, she notes. But not if it’s the automatic response to every situation.
If your looking to take #boldchange check out my Live Free Webinar on April 1st.I will share the top strategies you can implement straight away to smash through fear and say no to staying stuck.
See you soon!

Coach your ‘inner critic’ and step into your greatness

 

 

Coach your ‘inner critic’ and step into your greatness

As we go into the new year I would like you to think about giving something up. I don’t mean the extra biscuit, glass of whine or that toxic friend. I mean something closer to home.

 

My challenge to you is to give up letting your ‘inner critic’ rule you. You know that voice, the one who gets you to be smaller than you are and gets you to play it safe.

 

Susan Brady who works with women leaders, provides in this short video, a good basis from which to start giving up the tyranny of your ‘inner critic’. Susan asks us  to coach your ‘inner critic’ rather than let it coach you. Her top tips in this video are:

  • Give up perfection and get comfortable with being imperfect
  • Vulnerability is ok too, make it ok for others to be vulnerable too
  • Know your enough, right now, as you are
  • Separate worthiness (what you are born with) from confidence (which comes from action)
  • Know that the more you engage, the louder the critic will become- strengthen your courage

 

My message to you as 2015 draws a close: don’t make yourself small, go big in 2016.

 

Enjoy the video.

Kelly Marie Hamon- the power of courage

Picture (1)

 

In my third article on inspiring woman this month, I am excited  to introduce  my interview with Kelly Marie Hamon- a dynamic trainer. When I first started talking with Kelly and getting to know her, I was stuck by her passion and energy. I just had to get to Kelly to share  her journey . Kelly has an amazing story of courage, strength and inner wisdom.  I hope you are as inspired as I am.

 

A brief background

I taught many years within the community before becoming a professional teacher in 2004. When I was a young child I was diagnosed with a learning disability. I’ve just learnt differently than others. My challenges have made me a dynamic instructor/trainer. I have a unique perspective on learning and have been able to assist many people who were falling through the cracks.

When I was a young child I was diagnosed with a learning disability in English (reading/writing) and Math. I often joke; ‘English isn’t my first language’. I could not read until 8 th grade. No one believed I would be able to get through high school. I remember hearing my mother cry to her friend about my disability and her concern for my future.

When I was 14, I attended an early morning program in the L.D.S. Church.That year they were reading the New Testament. I wanted to be able to read like everyone else was, this is what I call positive peer pressure. So every night I tried, and prayed to be able to read…this went on for quite a while with marginal success until one day I found I was able to read the scriptures by myself. I went on to get an Associates Degree, a Bachelors Degree and  then a Masters Degree.

Your journey to become a trainer and the obstacles you overcame

My mother was always  supportive, she always told me I could do anything I set my mind to. In my first student teaching experience,  the teacher in charge was very critical. The experience was terrible. Thankfully a dear and sweet teacher gave me rave reviews and gave me tons of opportunities–-she trusted and believed in me and built me up.

I thought I would be seen as a fraud if anyone knew about my disabilities because I continued to see myself as stupid. Some days I still struggle, specially if I’m stressed. It wasn’t until 2014 that I began to openly talk about my disabilities, listening to my inner voice and my extremely supportive husband -I felt it was time. My students positive responses gave me the courage to tell my story/struggles to others–-it’s been freeing to finally be open about that part of me.

Lessons you would tell your younger self

My top 5 lessons are:

  1. “You are not your disability”
  2. “Believe in yourself”
  3.  “Walk through the fires of fear because you have plenty of gifts to share and bless peoples lives with”
  4. ”Realize your disability will help you understand others”
  5.  ”Listen to the supportive voices of friends and family and stay away from people who would bring you down”.

Hopes/goals/exciting news for the future

I started my business this year–-I teach small business owners,  entrepreneurs and educators how to use social media effectively. Find out more here:https://twitter.com/KellyHamon

My ultimate goals is to be on stage, talking to 1,000 people and getting them to do things they never thought they would be able to do. I also want to become a philanthropist like my friend , who believed in me and my abilities to become a trainer.

I hoped you enjoyed!

Inspring female leaderhsip

This is an insightful video about Claire Conner McCaskill’s leadership journey.This isn’t a post about her political positions. This is a video about a women chronicling her career  and, the lessons she learnt along the way.  A lawyer by training, Claire was the first women to be elected to the U.S. Senate for Missouri in her own right. What I found most striking about her story was the importance of confidence in yourself:

  •  tackle gender inequality in your workplace
  • develop your authentic voice
  • take risks
  • get  comfortable with being challenged and, challenging others
  • hold power in balance
  • get  comfortable with making mistakes
